[ - ] Posting here so I bite my tongue in real life: I'm so tired of listening to a friend complain about her ds' behavior as if it is unavoidable. She gives in to tantrums, does not follow through on threatened consequences and allows him to speak very disrespectfully to parents, friends and other adults. Then she complains about him as if she was simply dealt a difficult child. Tell me I'm judgmental if you must but she alternately accuses me of being too hard on my kids and then says I'm lucky my children are naturally well behaved - as if they were born this way. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I get the same thing from a friend of mine! She tells me what a great kid I have and then she is so disapproving about how "strict" I am! As if the two have no relationship. I admit that my child is naturally good natured and happy, but his behavior is, in part, a result of a lot of hard work on our part. You are right to be annoyed. [ Reply | More ]

does she tell you before she goes? or does she only indicate after? b/c if she does tell you before she goes you could always start doing the old candy/reward for going on the potty deal - we gave ds a choice of any one piece of candy from the candy bowl (all-natural jelly beans, gummy bears, or mini marshmallows) if he went on the potty. after a month or so he had mastered it and no longer even asked for the candy reward.

so maybe the first step is to determine if she can sense when she has to go. ask her to tell you. even if she doesn't use the potty. once she can tell you, try some kind of incentive to get her on the potty. (or, another option is to just put her in underwear one day - not letting her on the rug or sofa - and see what happens. tell her to let you know when she needs to go.) [ Reply | More ]

this is so unnecessary. her chid has been helped by speech therapy, so you call her an idiot? my 17 db cannot walk - she's gets a lot of therapy. without therapy, perhaps she would have walked at 3, with therapy, maybe she will walk at 2. Am I an idiot too? She just started speech therapy, and I can see that it is helping - the therapists is trying a lot of techniques that I have not tried and after just one session I saw some change.

These posters are just uninformed. It's really unfortunate because their scorn often convinces people not to seek help, and I'll never really understand the attitude, but it's not worth replying to them. And it's another sign that these kinds of questions should be posted to the SN board only. Involving any other board is a bad idea. [ Reply | More ]

She is not too young for the bed, but maybe she is giving up her nap. We switched to a "quiet time" at about that age. Dc used to be allowed to look at books or play quietly, but had to stay in bed for a half hour. Also made bedtime earlier and easier btw. [ Reply | More ]

she's not too young. it may just take some time for her to get used to falling asleep during the day - more distractions, etc. My ds took about a month or two until he was napping "normally" in his bed. (He moved into it at the same age as your dd) Just stay consistent about having her get into her bed at naptime. See if you can enforce some kind of quiet rest time where she has to stay in her bed (or at least stay in her room). [ Reply | More ]
