12 Year Old Boys...

My girlfriend has a 12 year old boy that is truly driving her nuts. I give as good of advice as I can, but really I raised girls, Im sure its different. Her son, has started "dating" a 13 year old girl (who mom doesnt like hehe), is pretty disrespectful to his mom, he is spoiled with cash & fancy electronics by his Dad that lives in a different city. He wants to "go out" on dates with the girlfriend, I think in groups it should be ok...? He has no experience using transit alone- I think now is a good time to learn... theres a bunch of stuff...

14 Year Old That Has a Lot of Headaches

I have a 14 year old son that has headaches quite often. He wears glasses, so that is not the problem. He comes home from school daily with a headache. I have taken him to the doctor and they have no answers for me. Does any one have this problem. He has had them on and off for 3 or 4 years now.

Does He Have Autism?????

my two year old son won't talk. we have done everything to get him to but he won't. he is seeing a speech therapist once a week and now she wants to send him to a doctor who specializes in this kind of thing. i'm afraid that the doctor will tell me that it is autism and i wouldn't know what to do. i'm so scared because he is my firstborn and i never dealt with this kind of thing before. i hope he doesn't have it and he can say some words but not enough. please pray that he will start talking soon before he starts school in august.

12 Year Old Behavior Problems

I am having problems with my 12 year old step son. Last school year he got 3 Fs, 2 Ds and a C. He always lied about having homework. At home, he wont do his chores. There is always a long fight. He says he's too tired, constipated, whatever, and refuses to do it. We have taken priveleges away, grounded him from friends, rewarded him when he does them--nothing seems to work. We've talked to his principal and counselor and teachers at school (I even went to his classes with him and sat at the back to watch his behavior and talk to the...

Stuffy Nose Every Night?

For the past week or so my son (who is almost 1 year) has been so stuffed up at night. I just recently took him to an allergist doctor, who helped us figure out that he is allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, fish, and peanuts. I am still nursing him three times a day and have not really eaten any diary product since he was three months because of him getting so stuffed up back then. It helped him a lot for me to do this, but I did not know he was allergic to the other foods. The doctor said though that it should not matter what I eat, it shouldn...

The Flu Is Here

Hi Ladies, My son was diagnosed with the flu yesterday and already today I am hearing about 2 more kids I know coming down with the flu. Is it in your community or your child? Are they taking Tamiflu? My son is 4 and he didn't get the flu shot. Timiflu seems to be working very well as he is already feeling better. Wondering what determines if the doctor prescribes it or not. How many days will your child be out of school?

11 Year Old Boy Misbehaving/attitude Problems

My 11 year old boy will be very rude, and make rude remarks, when they are not needed. I have tried taking his favorite items away, grounding him, etc.. The response I get is "So, like I care." "Good. I don't care." and my favorite, "Like it's going to hurt me." I have had him talk to his "father" of the church. (He's Catholic) I have sat down and asked him why he did it, and his response is "Beacuse." I have told him, "That is not a reason. He's 11 and I need more of a response. What would you tell your teacher if you did that?" He just...

My 11 Year Old Daughter Has Stomach Issues

For the past couple of nights my 11 year old has been throwing up, but during the day she'll be completely fine. This only happens at night . Today I got a phone call from her school saying she was in the nurse's office and her stomach hurt. I don't know what's wrong with her, but I think it's gastrointestinal problems.
