School Shooting :'(!

So I have been watching all day about the school shooting. Parker my son who is 4 seen some of it on the news and let me tell you that was a very stressful and heartfelt talk we had between the two of us.

I told him "No lil guy they weren't bad kids and that's not any kind of punishment. He said "Did that man not love kids?" I said "That man was very sick. And most people aren't like...

Has Anyone Had Experiences with the Foster to Adoption Program?

Hi Ladies, My husband and I are thinking about doing the foster to adoption program and are wondering if any of you have had experiences with the program - good, challenging, etc. We just would like a realistic picture of what we may encounter. We have two children 4 and 2 and would like a 3rd, but he or she does not need to be our biological child to complete our family. Plus we like that we will be giving a child opportunities he or she may otherwise not have growing up. Thank you ahead of time for your responses.

Tween Gifts for Friends - Budget?

Do your tween girls exchange gifts with their friends? What is the budget? How many friends do they exchange gifts with? I have a 7th grade, 12 year old daughter. We moved from a big city to a smaller town a year ago and it took her a while to find friends. Even though middle school can be full of cliques.... my daughter established a wide circle of friends.... none of whom seem to hang out with each other. So - although she has 7 or 8 friends with whom she is close.... they all have other friends (with whom I would consider ...

Math Facts for 2Nd Grader

OK. My 2nd grade daughter is supposed to pass +100 and -100's in 4 minuteswith 100% accuracy by the end of the school year.

Husband Extremely Hard on 1St Grader When Helping with Homework

My 1st grade daughter is a good kid. My husband is overall a very good dad - and he's also a very involved dad the past 2 years because he's been the stay-at-home parent. I have just one concern. Everything doesn't come terrifically easy to my 1st grader, but I do think she's trying pretty hard. My husband picks her up before I get home from work, and most nights by the time I get home (with our other, younger daughter) my 1st grader is at the table, crying, because he's giving her such a hard time about homework. This happens...

4 Year Old Always Says "I'm a Good Boy"

Hi there... this is totally new to me... so please be patient. I have recently started babysitting my 4 year old godson.

Even when he was just 2. He is always repeating himself, like for example... for fighting this morning I took the boys fav teddy bears away for a set amount of time.
