How to Leave a Play Group?

I’m sad. My 3yr old daughter and I have been a part of a playgroup across town for a while. I’ve decided to leave it for a number of reasons. I have had a couple of situations with the assistant organizer, who has been extreamly judgmental and often just mean to many of the members, including myself. I have spoken to her, but kept it quiet as to avoid causing problems with the group, though most of the other mothers have expressed issues with her also. Now the organizer is wonderful and very friendly. Mostly, I don’t feel that this...

Obsession with Drawing

My 6 year old daughter seems to be obsessed with drawing. She probably draws about 15 or more pictures a day when we are home all day. They are usually pics of a combination of people in our family, or fairies, flowers etc... I wouldn't think anything of it but she was exhibiting some OCD type symptoms last year so I was just wondering if this constant drawing is normal. I told her once "ok no more drawing for today" because we were low on paper and she literally started crying. Does anyone else's child this age draw this frequently?

Indoor Fun Activity or Place to Visit in DFW Area

My sister-in-law is coming to visit this weekend and wants to take our 3 year old to go do something fun. We live in Frisco and she originally wanted to take him to the Ft Worth zoo...however, it is suppose to be chilly on Saturday and to be honest, she doesn't have children and I don't feel comfortable having someone take my child to such a busy place where he could get lost without me being with them. I know I might be overproctective but it's my baby and I couldn't live with myself if something happened. I have been trying to think of...

Pretend Play or Dress Up?

Does anyone know of a place in the Plano area that our therapist can take my daughter to do pretend play or dress up or something interactive? My daughter has autism, and we do 30 hours a week of therapy. I am looking for a different setting than our home - she is sooo tired of all our stuff. The Clubhouse 4 Kids (parker and independence) is exactly the type of place I am looking for, but unfortunatley, they closed down. Any suggestions? Thanks. J.

Social Phobia, Me Again.

As a child I was a social outcast, a nerd. I was overweight, had horrible acne, bad perm, oversized, thick glasses. I was a mess. I was a complete introvert but managed to have a few friends. One became my best friend and was very loyal to me. She moved away when we were in highschool but as adults we still talk every few months. I was depressed a lot during the teen years. Once I lost the weight, my skin cleared up, and I got contacts, I felt slightly more confident. My reputation for being a nerd followed me into high school as I...
