Seeking Others Experiences

First I want everyone to know how thankful I am to have all these great Moms in one place to share with. You are all special, wonderful people! Okay, here is my situation. My Mom was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer a year ago. Two years ago my father died from the same thing. For Dad it was three months from diagnosis to death, at the time we were in 2 different states so my boys were not exposed to him being ill.

Husband Extremely Hard on 1St Grader When Helping with Homework

My 1st grade daughter is a good kid. My husband is overall a very good dad - and he's also a very involved dad the past 2 years because he's been the stay-at-home parent. I have just one concern. Everything doesn't come terrifically easy to my 1st grader, but I do think she's trying pretty hard. My husband picks her up before I get home from work, and most nights by the time I get home (with our other, younger daughter) my 1st grader is at the table, crying, because he's giving her such a hard time about homework. This happens...

Attachment Parenting & (Sudden) Pacifier Use

I know not everyone out there practices or supports attachment parenting. But for those who do, I wanted to hear some perspectives on pacifier use. We practice attachment parenting with our 9 month old son, he breastfeeds, sleeps on a sidecar mattress next to our mattress, is carried a lot and is responded to quickly. I am a part-time stay at home mom and have a part-time job, during which he has nanny share care. We are still supporting him to sleep through the night (he wakes about every 3 hours) and he needs rocking and singing (and...

4 Year Old Always Says "I'm a Good Boy"

Hi there... this is totally new to me... so please be patient. I have recently started babysitting my 4 year old godson.

Even when he was just 2. He is always repeating himself, like for example... for fighting this morning I took the boys fav teddy bears away for a set amount of time. My son got mad... but my godson says (about every 5 mins or...
