Kindergarten - my child "going postal" every morning... by Kimberly
Need any and all advice! :( My 5 year old boy just started kindergarten last Tuesday. My problem is every morning when I drop him off at his classroom, he goes into a horrible fit mode, he's even ripped my shirt on one occasion. I've tried everything. I've tried being very firm with him...

Homework over spring break (long) by beeswing
Over spring break, the students in our daughter's third grade class were tasked with writing a report on a country. The Kid has been to Mexico several times, so she chose to do hers on Mexico. The report consists of about 20 pages of worksheets asking for information such as population details,...

Inconsiderate drivers and kids who walk to school by Claire Petersky
My daughter walks or rides her scooter or bike to her elementary school every day. Because the route goes on a footpath, it's only a quarter mile; the route by motor vehicle is four times longer. The biggest problem right now the kids walking is all the other parents who drive. She only has...

Hi, For those with experience, at what age did you send your child to music and ballet class? Did she benefit from it or you think you could have waited for another year. Thanks. Regards Jo

Character of a growing girl (middle school question) by beeswing
I posted this question in the financial aid thread, but I'd really like to discuss it further. Could anyone please give me some input on this? If one can (potentially, maybe) pay for instate, public university education *OR* private school (especially at the critical middle-school level), how...

Help with a camp activity by Luna
Hi, I'm a first time camp counsellor at the YMCA summer day camp, and I am trying to get prepared for camp with some activity ideas. One of the "rainy day" games I thought of is called "Who am I?" Each kid has a name of a character taped to their back, and they ask the other kids yes and...

Does "no presents" really mean that? by D&K Condron
I recently went to a child's birthday party that requested no presents, but a dish of something yummy to share instead. Well, out of 8 moms invited, I was the *only* one who did not bring a gift. Did I miss something? I admit that I am new at the mommy thing, but to be the only one who did as...

Awful Halloween costumes by Nevermind
Yet another chapter in the saga of the "typical" 8 YO boy and his PC mom. He wants to be Freddie. No, he has of course never seen that or any other similar movie, but he thinks Freddie is "cool". In general, I have learned to avoid fussing over his interest in violent and scary imagery, as he has...

Help. Need some advice...Please. by [email protected]
I am having some trouble with my wife. We have two boys, one is 2 months old and the other is 19 months. I work and my wife stays at home. Lately my older son has been whinning and crying. He does this with her, but not as much with me. It's driving my wife nuts and now she wants to sent him...

training bras by beeswing
I have a third-grade daughter. A classmate's mother is pushing me to buy training bras for my daughter, which apparently her daughter already wears. While it's true my daughter is starting to "bloom," she's still young and hasn't shown an interest herself. (I offered a while back.) My daughter...

Clothing for tweens by Beeswing
My daughter is 9 and is getting to a point where she wants to pick clothes for herself. We were in a hurry yesterday and she needed a few new tops and pants, so my husband and I took her down to Sears with express purpose of looking at the Lands' End stuff. Well, it's between seasons, and there...

Recommendations of good non-animated "family" films for two parents and a 3-year-old? by Taed Nelson
I'd like to get some recommendations of true family films, something that would interest both parents and our 3-year-old. We've watched most of the recent "classics", such as those by Pixar and Disney. Many of the older Disney ones are too violent (such as _Fox and the Hound_) or scary. We also...

Kids playing in the streets by Mandy Anderson
I'm furious with my neighbors who seem to think the streets in our subdivision are for playing. Several women who have nothing better to do petitioned the county to put speed bumps in to slow cars down, yet the speed limit of 25 mph is still fast enough to kill or injure a child. When the sun is...

New Here, Q's about Kindergarten - Tips from those who've been there??? by Jaime
Hi. :) I'm new to this board and I've seen some old posts about kindergarten readiness, whether to hold/not to hold back, etc. I haven't seen anything newer, though. Forgive me if I glossed over this in FAQs, but I didn't see my questions. (Rambling...) We recently moved to an area where...

Kids drinking out of a garden hose by Beeswing
We just had a girl come over for a play date with our daughter. She'd never been here before, so I tried to be extra conscientious about things like not letting her go out of our yard unwatched, me dropping in to check in with them frequently, those sorts of things (both kids are 8, btw). My...

Halloween candy by Claire Petersky
My husband thinks it's unreasonable for me to buy Halloween candy 3 weeks in advance, and for me to expect that there still to be Halloween candy in the house by Halloween. Since I managed not to eat any Halloween candy, I don't think this is so unreasonable to expect others to exercise...

Songs they don't teach any more by Scott
I was amazed to learn this month that my kids (10.5 and almost 8) have not learned the words to 'Erie Canal'. I thought that was required learning for elementary schoolers everywhere, but it seems I was mistaken. :) Scott DD 10.5 and DS 7.9

Kids are Worth It by Robyn Kozierok
I recently picked up the book "Kids are Worth I: Giving Your Child the Gift of Inner Discipline" based on a recommendation (quite possibly from this newsgroups, but I actually don't remember where). I have read/skimmed a lot of it, and I like the philosophy, but I can't quite figure out how to...
