3 Year Old Son Refuses to Potty Train

Hi, my 3 year old son does not want to potty train. We started training when he was 2 1/2 and I never pushed it then and now we're approaching 3 1/2 and he freaks out when I mention going on the potty. He can pee, but has only gone #2 a handful of times which were absolutely at my insistence and pushing. I talk about it daily to him but he just gets upset or unruly. We moved twice last fall and his world was turned upside down and I really think the instability has set him back a bit. But we've been in our home now 2 months and we're...

Unruly 3 Year Old

I wrote a couple of weeks ago and i really need some advise. My 3 year old girl is completely out of control. She does not listen to anyone, she is horribly bratty, and has no regard for anyone else. When we are with other children, she will rip toys away from them, push them, and is ALWAYS the boss. But, she is the first to cry when someone else does something to her that she doesn't like. She has started talking baby talk all the time. It's not an attention thing, because I give her attention 24/7 and try very hard to be patient. ...

College Savings 101

As my girls get older, I can't help but worry about college expenses for 2 girls. What are your plans for college financing? How many kids do you have? Are you putting $ away monthly? Can I be so bold to ask how much? Taboo topic in person. Anyone seen the documentary, Ivory Tower? Excellent movie on the business on college admissions, student loans and the personal and financial cost of a 4 year degree.

Soon to Be 3 Year Old Doesn't Sleep Thru the Night!!

HELP!!! Our soon to be 3 year old does NOT sleep thru the night and we have tried EVERYTHING to figure out why she is waking up, but have yet to "crack the code." She attends a full day pre-school program 5 days a week (7:00am-3:15pm), she is a fairly good eater (as of the last 2 months), she is not given a lot of junk (one popsical after school, that's it-we won't even let her have yogurt any more because the sugar is so high & we don't know if that contributes to the lack of sleep). We do allow her some "educational" tv, but nothing...

Best Family Vacation EVER!

So we have decided that next year we want to take some sort of family vacation. A REAL vacation. One that does not involve visiting distant relatives. Something just for us. We just don't know where to go, most of our ideas will be better when our kids are older and can appreciate it more (Alaska fishing trip, Smithsonian, the Caribbean ). We'll have a week or so. We do NOT want amusement parks of any kind. We just aren't interested. We would also like to stay away from Florida...we have been numerous times. We love Florida, but we'd...
