[ - ] Do you think it is a little over the top that ds came home with a note from the K teacher because he insulted another kid in class? Can't say the specific insult, but so minor, like calling someone a crybaby. 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

NP: agree, children are not robots, they have feelings and even if you try to teach them to let insults roll off their backs, some kids find that very painful. Surprised anyone would bash a parent for a kid being upset by bulling/meanness. [ Reply | More ]

sometimes its not bullying, and sometimes when it becomes that, the sensitive kids have something to do with it. may start as a innocuous teasing about something. then the sensitive kid cries. then the sensitive kid cries all the time anytime anything happens to her, or near her. teachers rush around her, yell at the other kids. the other kids feel stressed out around the sensitive kid. she seems like a loose cannon to them. they feel bad around her. the stress of it all causes them to act out around her. I hae seen this in my own home and it took my psych to point it out to me. sensitive kid was always stressing out and making other kid feel bad about himself. [ Reply | More ]

I think if it was worth the teacher sending home a note, it means that your DC and his insults stood out to the point where teacher felt it was significant enough to tell you about. This is behavior you should work with him on. Obviously it affected the other kid. [ Reply | More ]

you can give them a call and ask to see the Dr sooner. Pulse racing and dizziness is normal during pg. With the increase of blood volume in your body, the heart beats faster at times. Are you taking your prenatal vitamins? You can get them at the pharmacy OTC [ Reply | More ]

sounds like a panic attack? do you have a history of anxiety? have you ever had a panic attack before? try breathing slowly, count to 3 as you breath in and then 3 as you breath out, in through the nose, out through the mouth. relax your muscles and try to concentrate on your breathing. and of course, you know your body best so if you are really worried do go to the ER.

[ - ] Nanny here, and very upset. I posted the other day, but it's still bothering me. I have been with my current employer only three months, but came to them from their friend who has known me for three years(and counting I still baby-sit for her). I KNOW they love me ( heard it from the neighbors, etc). I am friends with a mom in the neighborhood whose db I took care of last summer. We always have the kids together at the park for playdates, etc. Last week I asked my boss if I could take the baby to the other mom's house for a playdate, she said it was fine. We actually didn't go. Tuesday I took db there when it rained. I emailed the mom to let her know. When we got back and my boss called to check in, like she does everyday, she grilled me about the mom friend"is it a house or apt?how long have I known her? Is she married? Is her husband a nice guy? Is it a good block? " etc. Then tells me if she knew this woman better she wouldn'y be as 'apprehensive' about the baby going there. I took this as 'don't take baby there on another playdate'. I do understand her point, after all she doesn't really know the mom, but I do. I worked for the woman! She even met her at the baby's bday since she invited them. I am offended she doesn't trust my judgement. I would NEVER bring her baby some place that was unsafe. Am I overreacting? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
