I put together a fun list of ways to enjoy the snow:
1) Enjoy a steaming mug of hot cocoa while you gaze out your window at the beautiful white landscape
Everyone wants to see their kid succeed in the classroom, so receiving complaints about your kid’s classroom behavior can be a real downer.
When I received phone calls from my first grader’s teacher that my son was disrupting the class I knew I would have to be proactive.
Homework has to be the bane of parenting a school age child.
We all know the stress it can bring to our evenings! What can we do to change that?
I have two school-age kids. One does his homework on his own, and the other needs to be sat down with a parent helping him.
Everyone’s experienced it: Your kid is not interested in sitting down to do his homework, and when you make him he just can’t focus and get it done.
When I discovered my daughter had Molluscum, I knew I was in for a long haul.
Besides being unsightly, Molluscum can be really difficult to treat. Molluscum are small wartlike pimples that usually grow in clusters.
My daughter was four when she first developed Molluscum on her right knee.
My friend told me her pediatrician had told her to prick them with a pin and then squeeze them out. She told me she traumatized her kids doing that but it worked.
The nurse may have at least 6 other patients besides your child, and will not be able to play with them and keep them company when they are upset or bored.
It is always a scary decision to place your child under anesthesia, no matter the procedure.
My son has had tubes inserted in his ears three times, and I have no regrets having them done.
My son had his first ear infection at 3 months of age. He had fluid in his ears sporadically since, and when he was 2 years old he had his first set of tubes placed.
In medical terminology, ear tube placement is called a Myringotomy.
You bring your kid to the doctor and they just start talking to you like your kid’s not there.
Pediatricians remember: Kids hear what you are saying and understand a lot of what you tell their parents.
When my son was 6 years old, he was really short.
My pediatrician began to discuss his height with us, and told us in a very serious manner that my son’s height doesn’t even plot on the charts, and that he would like to send him for further tests to rule out any abnormalities.
