Help with a Sad 6 Year Old.

I really need some advice. My 6 year old daughter is very sad. I have tried a lot of different things to make her happy including spending one on one time, new kitten, counseling. I really don't know what to do. She is on Topramax for seizure activity. She sees a counselor to help deal with the death of her father ( which sometimes I think going to counseling just keeps bringing up her grief and never lets her get past it). She is very sensitive and her feelings get hurt very easily. She is suddenly shy and gets embarrased very easily. ...

Advice for 6 Year Old with Irrational Fears

My 6 year old son recently started thinking about death. After he goes to bed, he will get up and come into our room crying because "he is afraid of dying, and he doesn't want us (mom and dad) to die either." I have asked him what makes him think about it - something that he learned about in school, saw on TV, read in a book, etc., and he says he didn't hear about it anywhere. This has happened several times in the last two weeks. At the same time, he has also become increasingly afraid of storms - completely freaking out if it's at all...

What Pet Should We Get?

My husband and I are discussing getting a family pet. He wants an indoor cat or a small dog. I would prefer a sometimes indoor mostly outdoor dog because my son loves to be outdoors. We have a sixteen month old little boy who can be quite rough while playing so I'm thinking a bigger dog would be better so he doesn't accidentally hurt it. I am home all day so it will get plenty of attention. I went to a shelter today and found the cutest 1 year old beagle who has been declawed. Can anyone tell me any reason why we should not get the beagle...

No Extended Family Around!

Hello! Any other mom's out there living without any extended family around? Just looking to vent and for friendly advice. Husband's parents are in another country and my parents are in another state. We don't even have any other extended family around, ie... aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters. It kinda gets me down in the dumps. I envy the parents who can go out on a date and drop their child at grandma's & grandpa's for a couple of hours! We'd love to get a babysitter, but don't really know anyone well enough to trust watching our child. ...

Family Vacation Ideas

We have never taken a family vacation. We would like to this year. Our kids are Boy 10, Girl 6 and Boy 2. What are your favorite spots? We aer open to flying or driving. We are centrally located (KS) so any tips you could provide, things that did or didn't work for you. If we fly, what did you do about a car seat for the rental when you got there? Thanks!
