Tics that can drive you absolutely freakin nuts! by chiam margalit
My son, age 11, has residual tics from a medication that he takes. Usually they are fairly benign and we all can live with them (scratching his nose, licking his lips, clearing his throat... not all at the same time) but recently he has picked up a tic that is literally driving me nuts. He cracks...

preschooler's pants by Karen G
Are preschoolers intrinsically hard on pant's knees or is mine unique? 3 out of 7 days in the past week, my 4.5 year old has put holes in the knees of her pants. Now in the defense of the pants, most of them are two years old (this is the second year of her wearing these pants). I guess I need to...

Finally pregnant again after all these years! by andrea baker
Hi folks, A couple years ago I'd posted regarding washers, dryers, and a new addition to the family. Well, it appears that I'd jumped the gun, but now, about $13K later, I am finally expecting #2, a girl, due in April of 2004. -Andrea Baker

utensil reuse for lunchbox? by Carolyn Jean Fairman
I'm at a total loss. I need some way to send a fork and a spoon to school with my son where the fork/spoon are reusable and come back home and the *container* is also reuable. I just can't stand sending utensils out in a little plastic baggie every single day. It drives me nuts to toss the...

CTTS (age 10): there's no X in Y by Ted Alper
I haven't posted in some time, but Morris just told me this morning about a verbal exchange he had at school yesterday and I was paralyzed with laughter for a good minute -- and who can I tell? So, apparently he wasn't trying hard enough during PE yesterday (I think they were playing basketball),...

financial aid question by H Schinske
I recently checked out the web page of a private school where I am, and was surprised to discover that they make a difference in how they calculate family income for financial aid purposes if there is a stay-at-home parent. Essentially they use a figure for what the parent could in theory be making...

CTTS: toddler pronoun use and counting by Robyn Kozierok
To: Subject: CTTS: Toddler pronoun use and counting Like many toddlers, my 2.5yo has some confusion over the use of pronouns. He started out referring to himself exclusively as "you", but he now uses a combination of "I", "you" and "we" (perhaps he thinks he's royalty) in...

Allergies, anxiety or illness? by Iowacookiemom
Last night Henry (11 yo) was studying spelling with my husband. He was having a harder time than usual with it. Out of nowhere, he began removing most of his clothing, saying that he was very hot. Then he began vigorously scratching himself all over his body, saying he itched. He became...

Hi everyone, Thanks for your input on baby naming. I've tentatively decided to switch the names around (Artemis for the first name; Hypatia for the middle). This weekend I was having brunch with a vegetarian friend of mine-- he, of course, raised his eyebrows (but didn't comment) when...

Teach Your Baby to Read by Stan
Hello all, I'm interested in hearing good and bad opinions on the now 40 year old "teach your baby to read" book. I've heard a lot of "bad science" claims about Doman et al, and if anyone has anything good to say long-term about his programs for well children, it certainly doesn't appear they do so...

THANKS: Character of a growing girl (middle school question) by Beeswing
First, I want to say that describing our middle school as "inner city" is an overstatement...our city doesn't have an "inner city" as you might visualize one. The school is urban, it does have related drawbacks, and I do have concerns relative to this. But it's not as bad as all that, and I'm sorry...

CTTS -- 10 YO by Catherine Moore
I have been meaning to post this for a few weeks. Better late than never. We had two separate conversations with E 10YO on the same weekend. The first had to do with the age-old question. If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to hear the sound, does it make a noise? Which led to the...

Chess books for 7yo? by Robin
I'm working out the holiday book list for my kids, and I could use some advice on a chess book for my 7yo. Roger's in second grade, and he has been playing chess with a school club since last year. It's definitely more recreational than instructional; the kids get together and play games with one...
