...I'm sure you can find links to the exact ratio of water to vinegar...but at this point I just fill a bucket about half way with water, dump in some vinegar (1/2 cup - 1 cup probably, but I don't measure), let them sit for a few minutes (you could also leave them sitting for awhile and they'd be fine), then ring them out and let them dry.

OR: It's not really much work. You don't have to scrub them as if you're hand washing laundry. just let them sit for a minute, quickly wring them out, then hang over the bar in your shower, towel rack, the back of chair, whatever. It takes a couple minutes total, and is a lot better than having gross smelling laundry. OP could also just let them hang dry (skip the vinegar soak) if she is going to wash them within a day or two. The main thing is to NOT wad them up and stick them in with everything else while wet. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Ridiculous situation but I need some input: we have sold some of DC’s clothes through a consignment store and are owed just short of $20. The store owner is one of those hipsters middle-aged ladies that thinks she is all that and a bag of chips and can be slightly over the top; almost 3 months ago I called to get this last check mailed and have since called another 3 times but still haven’t received anything. Today I had my DH call and the woman went on a tirade about how she has to do it, doesn’t have any time and it’s such a small amount that we are at the bottom of her to-do list, all the while acknowledging that she owes the money and that we first talked a long time ago, she then hung up the phone on my DH. What should I do? I should add that we moved so going there it’s an inconvenience, at the same time I am furious. Can I report her? To whom? Any other ideas? TIA 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

None of that stuff has actually increased in frequency. Our perception of danger has changed but our kids are no more likely to be kidnapped by strangers, molested etc than in years past.I don't think it's one discrete conversation, I think there's an ongoing lesson that certain parts of your body are private, that no one touches those parts except for cleaning/medical exam, that adults don't ask kids to keep secrets from their parents, that you never never never touch a gun and you leave the room and tell a grownup if another kid takes one out, etc. Schools run lockdown drills these days, in that case the teachers will tell dc what to do.

Go read the stats.

The school will handle those drills and that security anyway, it is out of your hands. There has been no increase in kidnappings, EXCEPT that the greater number of divorces and custody battles has led to more parent kidnappings. [ Reply | More ]

NP. FWIW, current thinking on "stranger danger" is that it's actually a mistake to teach kids not to talk to strangers, because if they ever get lost or there's a fire you want them to feel safe asking an adult for help. (Many times kids hide from firefighters during house fires.) It's now recommended that you tell them most people are nice, and if they need help they should first look for a mom with children, then any adult in uniform, then a dad with kids, but NOT to trust adults who approach them or ask for help.

I do it casually over the course of their being small starting at where you are now. I taught them their tel and home address. I talked to them about what to do if they get lost. I talked about 911. I say it occasionally when we are driving to see if they remember. My voice is neutral so I'm not imparting my own fears into the conversation. I also introduced in the bath that the only people allowed to touch them are mommy and daddy and the pediatrician when we are there. That they are in charge of their own bodies. Then before they start camp I talk to them about it again. We occasionally have conversations about the differences between secrets and surprises. That no adult can tell them to keep a secret from mom/dad and that if they do even if they feel scared they should tell us right away. And that that is the signal to tell us. We talk about that they will never get picked up by anyone whom they don't know beforehand is getting them even if they say they spoke to us on the phone. They can always ask the person to call us, so we can tell them directly. All is said casually and repeated across many conversations but not overkill. Hope this helps. [ Reply | More ]

Not necessarily. I think your approach makes sense when you're talking about a one time situation. If the fear persists I'd talk to him about it more. But a simple reassurance and changing the subject is a good approach for an isolated incident. He may have just had that random fear because of something he overheard/saw, and will now forget it. In that case you were smart to downplay it. If the fear persists, you can talk about it more. But I think you handled this correctly so far. [ Reply | More ]

You're trying on other people's lives because you don't really have one of your own. That's cool. It's a writer's dream - to be able to create a character and have instant feedback from real people. Have fun with it. And hopefully one day you'll have enough going on in your own life that you won't need to make it up. I have like four different "characters" here, but they're all based on things that are really happening in my life. So when I post one thing people remember that I posted about it and respond, and then I post another thing and people remember that, too, but they don't realize its the same person that has these three or four disconnected faces. At some point you'll have enough different facets of your own life as well that you'll be able to do the same. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Articles in mainstream media that say hands off parenting is ideal rather than involved parenting really upset me. I grew up with a neglectful mother and plan to be a total helicopter mom showering my kids with love. I guess I'm preaching to the choir here because obviously moms on a parenting board care about their kids. But still, I felt the need to say something anyway. 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It's normal to feel the way you do. I'm the same in that I grew up with a neglectful parent and am trying to do the opposite. Loving your kids and being there for them doesn't make you a helicopter.
