It's not a perfect science. Estimates based on mom & dad's heights are just guesstimates - kids can end up taller or shorter. Have you asked her doctor about the delayed period? It may be totally normal, but it just sounds really late. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Am I a Halloween grinch to be a little annoyed that on mischief night last night, every tree in our front yard was heavily tp'd, and several cans of silly string were used on our cars and all over our shrubs and bushes? Not a big deal but clean up took nearly an hour and it's not remotely funny or clever to me. We know it was teenagers down the street who did it. I guess I'm annoyed because we have very little kids so it wasn't about kids pranking each other - it was just dumb teenager behavior that made our morning hectic and annoying. 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Not a believer at all, but got a free tarot card reading from some people my boss swore were the real deal. They told me to concentrate on a question while they did the cards, but not to tell them what my question was. Then they answered the question I'd never asked. Maybe it was a lucky guess, but it was really weird. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Son is 3 years old - no dev disorder, but reserved and shy. He does not say hello back when people (adults OR kids) say hi or good morning directly to him. I have just started to explain that it makes people feel good to respond. I do not label, force him to speak, things like that that I know are bad. But I do think he's old enough to at least know more about the impact of this behavior. What do you think? Drop it after mentioning it a couple times, or keep talking about it after he ignores someone in front of me. I obviously model friendly behavior in front of him. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think the view in the US on this topic is very different to other countries. I would say that it is fine, he will work up to it eventually and gain some confidence and that forcing him now is going to backfire. My oldest was exactly like that and although she is still extremely shy at 8, she has over the years learned to understand when she needs to push herself outside her comfort zone to be polite. No-one at home ever raised it as an issue. However my youngest is now 3 and exactly the same (with a middle child who would say Hi to anyone from the time he could make a sound) and I was told the other day that I need to get him assessed by a psychologist!

I think it's totally normal. Just model the behavior. When you see him doing something you like, compliment him later. "I noticed you gave Mrs. Smith a big smile when you saw her in the elevator. I bet that made her feel really good." "John said he learned a lot about dinosaurs from your conversation." [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] UB executives or near execs, help me understand. Just got the resume of person hired to head a department. Department is diverse, think marketing/communications/external relations for a large nonprofit. Resume shows person has less than 12 years work experience and narrowly in only one of these 3 buckets. Absolutely no experience in any of the other buckets. I am primarily in 2 of the other buckets with almost no experience in the area the new hire excels in. Are my days numbered? Would you envision there will be restructuring and perhaps I might be able to position myself as head of the buckets s/he has no experience in? Also -- just SMH. What was our exec thinking with this hire? Seems either he doesn't know or doesn't care about 80% of the work the dept does. Will turn this dept completely upside down. I suppose that was the goal, but the demands for the other work is very strong from all constituencies within the organization, so seems shortsighted/ignorant to disregard that. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
