[ - ] 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? 4 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.

[ - ] S/O post. We are a blended household - Jewish and Christian. We celebrate both holidays, primarily with food and presents, when appropriate. We celebrate the Jewish holidays with one side of the family and the Christian holidays with the other side. Never had a problem or an issue. DCs love the holidays. Anybody else like this? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | 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. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | 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 ]
