Lyon is one of the biggest towns in France... Why not use this as a middle name and give her a "normal" first name? Can you imagine how embarrassed she will be about her name if she does not work in a creative industry? [ Reply | More ]

hope this is helpful. i have a 2.5 ds ...argh i know what you are going through. screamfreeparenting dot com 'I'm guessing that as your son becomes more problematic, you tend to sacrifice yourself and your time and your interests in order to focus on him. (That's what we all tend to do). But that usually just makes things worse. When it feels like our children are demanding us to orbit our lives around them, that's exactly when to resist that demand and focus on ourselves. The only way you can hold onto yourself here is to figure out whatever you need in order to remain calm and connected at the same time. If that means time away from your son, take it. If that means asking for help from others, ask for it. What your son needs is for you to not need him to all of a sudden stop being a child. When you're OK with yourself, even as he's throwing a terrible tantrum, then you'll be able to affect the situation in a calm and connected way. Now, about your son. I take it that this is your first run in with tantrums, which can indeed be among the most trying times in any family. What your son is going through is his first attempt to "launch" from you. The whole point of his existence is to eventually launch from your nest and begin his own life, and around this age he is beginning to grow some feathers on his wings. That's what's behind his tantrums; he is testing you and himself to see how he can see himself as separate from you, as a separate human being with his own will and decision-making ability. That's why it is so important to begin granting him some more space. You can be the architect behind his launching, and that can begin now by giving him clear choices and clear consequences for those choices. You are being majorly tested here, as I know you know. But the test is not to see if you can get your son under control, it's to see if, in the midst of this chaos, whether you can get yourself under control.' [ Reply | More ]
