The schools are very good and there is a nice SS girls school in the town. If this is your situation, it may work out for you. You have to be willing to pay up for a good house. anything under 1.5 is frowned upon. [ Reply | More ]

I had the same feeling about the children's librarian in the main branch of our municipal library. I thought "what on earth is this man in his 30s doing here, doing story hour?!" Later I found out that everyone thought the same thing, but he had also been a local resident for ages and had some kind of chronic illness. He actually married another librarian a few years after I first saw him. A dozen years later he's still there playing Santa and the Easter Bunny, new expanded modern library. Everyone loves him.

[ - ] Can you experts please help me potty train my kid? He's 3.5 and still shitting in his pants. My wife the pediatrician said she was going to work with him to potty train him but considering she's never around it looks like I'll have to take it on myself. At this point I have to physically hold him on his potty - he has no interest in sitting, no toys or candy or bribes seem to work. He will poop in the potty but maybe once or twice a week? Otherwise he wears pull ups, which I know we shouldn't let him do, but at this point I can't clean shit out of his clothes three times a day. Can you help? 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Have you tried straight up bribery? I'm sure you have, but the way I incentivized my kid was to let him have the ipad on the toilet...and at no other time. So sure, he'd say he had to poop and be faking it, but eventually he would definitely poop and after a week or two, he wasn't sweating doing it on the toilet. Then after a time I started doing the 'oh, sorry, it's out of charge' and eliminated the ipad crutch entirely. OR, is there some toy that he desperately wants that you can offer after a week of doing poops on the potty or something? [ Reply | More ]

You hold him down on the toilet? Like FORCE HIM? Just trying to figure out if this is fake. If it's not fake and you're not holding him down, then my son had some discomfort around pooping, then he got scared, then he held it, then it was worse. What we did: 1) got this book and read it: http://www.amazon.com/Hurts-Story-Children-Scared-Potty/dp/1433801310/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1418995539&sr=8-1&keywords=it+hurts+when+i+poop+book 2) made "potty practice" a part of every day about 20 mins after meals, like " you have to sit for a few minutes and if nothing happens, fine" and 3) to deal constipation which I am not sure if your kid has, we did, per the ped, a low dose of Miralax each day.

Yeah, this seems to be where we are at with him. I know it's not the right thing to do so this is what I'm trying to figure out. We try to do the "20 minutes after meals thing" but today after breakfast he just will not sit. Squirming and yelling and fighting. Which is why I tried to hold him down, but after 5 minutes I realized I'm doing more harm with that approach, which is why I want advice. Thanks for your suggestion. [ Reply | More ]

You are welcome, and listen, it is SUPER frustrating to have bathroom battles but I suggest you back off (and trust me, we had some too over here). If he is at all constipated, talk to his ped about Miralax -- we found it, honestly, a miracle cure over here. It was a 1/2 dose of the adult size (but again, ask your ped!!!) and I think he took it daily for about 6 mos (mixed in with some milk or in the beginning, choc milk). Now he's regular and fine using the bathroom. [ Reply | More ]

^^Sorry, forgot, we also gave a small reward for just sitting, which you may already be doing, but any time our ds sat for potty practice, he got a sticker (I think?) and after X stickers, a small matchbox car (I am slightly hazy on specifics but you get the idea). I think taking the pressure off "going" and putting all the focus on "trying" also helps but give yourself permission to take a few days off here and regain your cool, b/c this wil be over soon and you won't even remember all this drama. Hang in there, I'm going to watch this thread and check in with you. PS If you're mad at your wife, don't take it out on your son (I'm sure you know this, but a gentle reminder.) [ Reply | More ]

What worked for us is that we told him diapers weren't allowed at preschool. A week or two in, every single kid was using the potty. That said, we had regular potty time after breakfast and read to him then. He loved books, so would sit. You could try raising the fiber in his diet, i.e. more beans and vegetables. If he won't eat that sort of thing, then get it in there by stealth. I'd be very low-key, tell him he has to try several times a day but don't make a thing if it doesn't work--"oh well, too bad. maybe next time you'll do that in the potty." Maybe even set a clock he can see when he's sitting on the potty: start with even 1 minute (second hand necessary, obviously). But right now, it's a battle of wills that you're losing, so you need to reframe the whole thing and de-escalate before you go farther. --mom of teen who is dealing with different battle of wills :) [ Reply | More ]

Back off the physically holding him on toilet. No power struggles with potty - that's one of the only areas the kid has control of. Figure out his poop times and them give him an M&M if he sits on the potty around those times for a couple if minutes. Give him the M&M even if he doesn't poop. You will be washing shit out of pants for a couple of months. Just face it. He still should wear diapers in bed though. No diapers during day - even pull ups. [ Reply | More ]

We celebrate both but do the presents on Xmas. I never wanted competing presents, and honestly, that aspect of Hanukkah was never that important to me. Now latkes, on the other hand.... [ Reply | More ]

Yes, my family is like this. We aren't particularly religious, especially my family (the Christian side). Some of dh's family is quite religious (Jewish) but they are very accepting and we kind of don't let on the extent we celebrate Christmas or Easter (which is mostly secular). We do the menorah, latkes and dreidel etc on Chanukah and usually a small present on the first and last nights, but mostly presents are on Christmas. We also have friends of other faiths (Muslim, Hindi) and when they invite us we celebrate their holidays with them. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] So if you are meeting someone at a bar or restaurant, do you wait inside or outside? I was meeting a friend last night and I waited inside but she waited outside. After about 30 minutes, she came in freezing and was kind of angry with me for not looking for her outside. 19 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

She's an idiot. Of course you wait inside. Unless you expressly agree to meet outside. [ Reply | More ]

Depends. If I'm like 2 min early, I might wait outside, but if df didn't get there within 10 min, I would look inside. When it is cold, I always wait inside. [ Reply | More ]

I get a table or seat, whether inside or out. I also get a drink and look at the menu. Tardy people from my youth instilled this practice. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] We're going through the application process for k for my dc. Randomly, I've been meeting some people who have graduated from HM years ago and every single one said that they would never consider sending their children there. The explanations were all pretty much saying that it's a real "pressure cooker" and that they all hated it there (they are all very successful now, professionally). Any HM moms or graduates out there? Is this the case for most HM children or did i just meet an unlucky few? Of course my dh and i want the best possible education for our dc but not at the expense of her "happiness". Would love to hear personal experiences…. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It is quite likely the habits of discipline, focus, determination, hard work, etc. that these people learned (admittedly the hard way) at school, are the very habits that set them up for success in later life. [ Reply | More ]

I graduated from there (late 90's) and would love to give my kids the same experience if they are as driven/ambitious as I was. [ Reply | More ]

Those were the kids who shouldn't have been there in the first place. For the right kid (super smart, driven) it is the most awesome school. [ Reply | More ]
