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.

6 Year Old Allowance

My daughter is almost 6 years old. She has no concept of money. She thinks that it is ALWAYS available to her. I want to start giving her an allowance, so she can buy her own afternoon snacks at school and whatever toys she thinks she must have. My question is how much of allowance do you give to a 6 year old? What are the task she must do, in order to earn the money? What about deductions, when she doesn't do anything? Thanks for your help in advance. K.

Just Lost My job.....pregnant W/two Kids - NEED BUDGET CUTTING IDEAS!

I just lost my job, so our household income is now about half what it was. I am 5 months pregnant, so finding another job right now might prove challenging to say the least. I am considering staying home, but I need ideas to cut our budget DRAMATICALLY. Some of the things we cannot cut, such as school loan repayments, etc. Luckily, we do not live on more than we earn, so we will be able to make it on my hubby's income for a while, I hope. But, we are losing 50k a year, so we need to make some drastic changes in our lifetstyle. Our...

Almost 6-Year-old Wants a Nintendo DS or a Wii

My almost 6-year-old has been pleading for a Nintendo DS or the Wii, like all his cousins and some of his friends have. My mother-in-law really wants to get him one for his upcoming birthday, but my husband and I are not sure we want him to have one. We're concerned that even if we restrict his usage of it, it will be addictive and he will be less interested in his usual activities --- reading, art, t-ball, scooter riding, music, imaginative play, etc. He's the usual energetic kind of boy but we love that he has a creative and...

Troubled 7 Year Old

Hello everyone, I need some help. My seven year old has changed his behavior drastically in the last 6 months. Now it is like he is almost a completly different boy. About 6 months ago I started a new postion at work which took me from working evenings to working overnights. Since then his behavior has changed. My husband and brother stepped up and helped him with his homework and picked up from school. But he started acting out in class, not turning in assignments, not bringing them home, and causing trouble at recess. At home he would do...

6 Year Old Terrified of Tornados

Hello mommies :) I have a 6 year old girl who is absolutely terrified of a tornado sucking us all up. She's had a fear of them since she was about 3-4 and the sirens had gone off at my moms house. We went into the basement until it was clear and all was fine. This episode started two weeks ago Friday when the sirens went off while she was at her dads house in Newark. After that she had nightmares for a week and has been telling me every few hours how the clouds look like a tornado cloud, or the sounds she hears could be the sirens,...

Living on Credit Cards

Financially we are quite a mess, and at odds as to what to do! So please, any advice would be helpful. Our credit score is excellent, we manage to pay things on time, because we keep borrowing from our credit cards. We are over 115,000 in debt, and that does NOT include the large mortgage. We are an average family, we don't make a lot of $, we bought a home too expensive, and had debt going into it, but now it's way worse. We are not upside down, just have more going out then whats coming in. We'd like to keep good credit, because...
