Help-my 8 Year Old Is Very Picky About Her Food.

I have an 8 year old that is very picky about food. She either wants something different from what i've made and if not, she won't eat. I can't get her to eat veggies or healthy food. It all started one day that we were at my in laws house, and she almost vomited, ever since then, she is always saying that if she tries something new she's going to throw up. I've tried telling her to try something first, before saying she doesn't like it, I've tried the mother and daughter cook day, where we make somthing together, i've tried to hide the...

Need a GR8 Counselor for My 8 Year Old Son and I, He Has ADHD

My 8 year old son and I are going through a lot of rough times with his ADHD. I know it's my lack of tools to deal with his misbehavior. Also, I just can't always relate to him. He has two younger 1/2 siblings from a previous marriage (different father). I am going through a divorce (from my two younger children's father) and I know he is having a hard time with that also. I feel bad because since he is the oldest I expect more from him. I feel bad because now I am a single mother of three beautiful children, working shift work I can't...

Orthodontist for a 7 Year Old?

I took my kids to their 6-month cleaning with the dentist this week. The dentist mentioned that my 7-year old son's bite was a little off and I might want to think about a orthodontist. When I asked when he should go, the dentist said that now would be a good time. I fully accept that orthodontists are in our future. I will pay the money to let my children have good teeth. However, my son only has 4 permanent adult teeth so far. Is it really common to start with an orthodontist this young before the adult teeth have even come in? ...

12 Year Molars Coming up in My 8 Year Old.

Does anyone have experience with this? My 8 year old told me she was having pain in her mouth before bedtime last night, so I took a flashlight and took a peek and sure enough her 12 year molars are getting ready to poke through. My concern is not so much that she's an early bloomer in this area but that she's only lost 5 baby teeth so far and some of them had to be pulled because there was no room for the adult tooth that was coming in. She is little thing with tiny features and I'm concerned that the dentist is going to want to start...

Should I Get a Doula for My First Pregnancy?

I'm pregnant with my first and plan on having a natural childbirth. I've heard doula's are awesome to have and am not sure if I should. My partner is very supportive, he has a 10yr old, so he's been through it before. My mom plans on being there (if she can) and she's had 6 kids all natural births. Would a doula be more than I need, or do you think one would still be worth the cost? If so does anyone have recomendations, or should I ask my doctor? And what should I expect to pay?

9-Year-old Asking About Sex

My daughter has asked me what the word sex means and what sex is. She is 9. I explained to her that some questions are very difficult to answer and that I would like some time to think about it so I answer it the best way I can. She accepted that but I feel I need to give her an answer soon. Any suggestions? How much should a 9-year-old know? It's obvious someone, probably a kid at school, has used the word or talked about it. Otherwise she wouldn't be asking. I do realize she could have also gotten it from TV. We have already talked about...
