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...

4 Year Old Behavior

I am wondering if any of you have experienced some of these characteristics with your 4 year old (I have a boy). He can't stand tags in his clothing, socks are too tight, pants are too tight (even though they are not.....), no long sleeve shirts (can't stand them!). Behaviors he has are: tantrums....screaming, yelling, and hitting the bedroom door...etc... when we are transitioning him from one thing to the next...and he is not happy about the next event. We also are hearing from others that he is bugging other kids who are next to him...

I have explained to her that she needs to let it out, but no success yet. Does anybody have any suggestions? I would truly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Eating with a Spoon

I have a 4 month old little boy. Recently, our doctor told me to start him on puree foods. But he hates the spoon. I have tried a couple of different baby spoons, but it doesnt work. Everytime he sees a spoon he just starts wailing. What should I do? Should I keep feeding him, even though he is crying? Should I stop for a little while? I'm not sure what my next move should be... HELP!

Body Odor on My 4-Year-old

My 4-year-old has body odor! The girl should probably wear deodorant; although, I haven't gone that route just yet. Has anyone else dealt with this? A good washing under her arms every night is a MUST!! I asked her pedi about early development, but there were no other signs, and he didn't seem concerned at all. Am I alone here?

3 Year Old Stubborn Eater

I have a 3 year old son who is beyond a picky eater. He refuses to try a lot of foods. He has been like this for two years. He sticks to only particular foods and that's it. I tried every method on mixing and changing foods for him to try. I used to get frustrated with the situation, but now I just let the situation take it's course. I wanted to know if any mothers have the same problem and what they did to help their child become curious about eating other foods? I want to be able to sit at the table at dinner time with my son, but since...

3 Year Old Behavior...

Hello there...I am looking for new tricks to have up my sleeve when dealing with my 3 year old daughter. As of late she has taken to shrieeking when put on a time out. I also have not been able to get her to say "I'm sorry for _____" once she's out of her time out. She flat out refuses and walks away or says she "can't". She also has taken to talking or raising her voice over mine to repeat herself when told "no" in getting something. This she picked up from me due to my using it when she started repeating herself so say "noooooo" over her....
