• Speech delay ? Should I be concerned ?

    Best answer: Lots of parents at this age start to worry about language acquisition. A child at 17 months should be saying a few words - but that includes any word of their own invention. Any consonant-vowel combination that has a consistent meaning to your child is a word. That means if your kid always says "ba" for ball, it counts. If she says "ba" to mean ball and also blanket, that's two words. If you understand it and it's consistent, it's a word. From that perspective, kids are often saying more than their parents immediately think of.

    If you are worried about it, this is a good article from ASHA, the speech-language people. https://www.asha.org/public/speech/disor...
    There is also a link on that page that will show you common development by age and when to be concerned.

    Okay so I have a 4 year old son who will be 5 in a couple of months who just will not listen at school. His behavior is out of control and it seems like the only person he will listen to is me (mom) and his step dad. He hits people, throws chairs and toys when he is mad and just refuses to follow any direction. Its to a point where he cant even make it 10 minutes in class without having a behavior. He has been grounded for almost 2 weeks at home because of the continuous bad behavior at school and still goes to school and makes bad decisions. Any advice? I'm taking him to see a behavioral doctor soon and I am considering moving pre-schools.

    About a month ago he started making a humming sound when he points. He saids words, understands my commands, does pretend okay, points to body parts when asked where his nose is. When he does the humming sound, you can tell he is trying to babble. I can't explain it, but I need some feed back on it. it sounds like he is humming a the letter N for about 2 seconds while he points or sometimes its when he is trying to have a convo with me. Also here lately he so hyper during bath time. He tries to stand up and call back down in the tub. He goes bizark! If plays in his room alone, he starts pulling clothes out of the dressers and just goes wild he will sit calmly while I read him a book.

  • In your opinion, is there too little of Christianity in today's high school biology curriculum? And should universities fire?

  • Is it possible my 5 year old has anxiety?

    Best answer: Just show compassion, let her know it is easy to find out the names of her classmates, and she will be fine. Your daughter is probably a rather responsible child who just wants to be able to do this, and then all of a sudden thought she could not do it. In that situation, she didn't know the solution.

    Best answer: Just show compassion, let her know it is easy to find out the names of her classmates, and she will be fine. Your daughter is probably a rather responsible child who just wants to be able to do this, and then all of a sudden thought she could not do it. In that situation, she didn't know the solution.

    As a parent, you are supposed to help show your child that things aren't as hard as they sometimes think, provide the guidance they need and help them move on.

    Labeling will eventually cause this, if you say she's broken and don't help with the solution.

    Solution:
    "Oh, you're worried you can't give cards to all your friends because you don't know all their names? I know what to do . . . Let's get the class list from your teacher. No one in your class will know all the names. This way we can copy them on the envelopes and it will be fun! Or, you can just sign the cards and give them out that way. See, it's easy!" (Hug the child).

    Kids don't know all the solutions. Leaving takes time.

    Best answer: Can you find supportive people at a church or other organization? Are there any daycare centers he could go to that are subsidized by humanitarian orgs or the govt. Can the public school (even if he's too young) provide some direction to help?

    If your ex has any income he has a moral obligation to help financially. If he truly doesn't care how much you and your baby are struggling, it's good the jacka$$ is gone. If he wants to help but wrongly thinks you'll misuse the money, can you talk to elder in his life who he trust who can give him direction how the right way to help.

    What job did you want to be when you grew up? Could you find some daycare and get even a PT job even working *around* that area? Getting away from your grandmother also need to be on your plan, say by this summer.

    My wife and I had two healthy kids, but when they were both in diapers the work of carrying for them really wore us down. So I cannot imagine what you're going through. I know you need to seek helpers and just immediately stop talking to anyone giving you grief or anyone who needs your help because you don't have energy for it. In a decompressed plane, you put your O2 mask on FIRST, then children's, and only then do you even think about other issues. I'm sorry to hear this story. It bothers me b/c it was so hard for my wife and me, and I shudder to think of doing it alone.

    Best answer: Mammawisdom has some very good suggestions.

    Your son may have food sensitivities, and dairy and wheat are often culprits. Look into this, but cut way down on sugar.

    Get your son outside for active play. There's nothing like fresh air and moving around to get energy out.

    Get a trampoline, and if you have a free area in your house, create a climbing area. I found nothing wrong with allowing a little jumping on the bed in inclement weather. Have fun with your son. It will pay off in the end.

    Spanking is not likely to help. Cutting down on the carbs and foods he is sensitive to, probably will, as well as just having fun with him. Appreciate who your son is, so he ultimately can. Praise him for his efforts, no matter how small they may seem. This will be his self-talk.

    Find an alternative to the blinds, even if you need to use the stick-on privacy window coverings.

    Take time to read with your son, especially at bedtime. Read often.

    Keep a sense of humor and love your son.

    Best answer: People have gotten tired of the constant trolling and the fact that nothing is done to stop them. Life is too short for foolish nonsense.

    My daughter is a 14 year old and for the past 3 days (also the night before the first day) she has been sick and has had a fever. On the first day she took her temp and it was only 100.1 and i just told her to sleep. She complained about her head hurting and a sore throat so i gave her some medicine. The next day i woke up t find that she had not slept at all that night so i just gave her medicine throughout the day and she also was shaking alot. Last night she was shaking alot in bed so i gave her more medicine and she only slept about 3 hours. This morning she was feeling not as bad as the day before but still sick so we took her temp and she had a 102.7 fever. It's now reached noon and its only gone down to 102.5 with liquid medicine and tablets. We are going to the doctor in a few hours to get medicine but is this a more urgent care situation or even hospital?

    Best answer: Mia “I love you 1000 moons!”

    Me “Moons?”

    Mia “ya! 1000 moons!!”

    Me “what’s moons?”

    Mia “you know, It’s huge! So 1000 moons! I love you 1000 moons!”

    When my youngest daughter was 3, she started to use “Moon” as a unit.

    At the point of her counting capability, 1000 was the biggest, and most closest to the eternity.

    1000 moons. I was sincerely honored to be loved that much.
