i don't think you can say anything unfortunately. It's just how some moms are. They are more hands off. i'm currently frustrated with my good friend who doesn't intervene AT ALL with her sons, who are very aggressive. She thinks they should work it out. Drives me crazy, but there is no telling her, she thinks her ways is right and that I'm too hands on. I want to ask her how it's working for her, since her kids are always aggressive, but I bite my tongue. Instead I just don't get together with her as often. I'm not a sn mom btw, but I'm a speech therapist. [ Reply | More ]

I think you just really need to watch your kid around this other child, intervene if anything is about to happen in the future. If you go back now and make an issue of her dc scratching your ds, you are doing it for other reasons. You are trying to teach her a lesson, make an example of her kid because you don't like how she is handling (or not handling) her child's SN. [ Reply | More ]

"I made a point of telling my son around the other moms that this child was not a good playmate and that he should not go over and play with him." Hmm...seems to me that you are trying to launch a campaign against this kid to turn opinion against him. I agree that the mom shouldn't leave her child and run off to Staples. You don't point out loudly to your kid in front others that the child is not a good playmate. [ Reply | More ]

np: you sound like you are scorning him in front of the others by saying he is not a good playmate. Instead you should try to help the kids find ways to play nicely together. This should happen regardless of how the mom is. Your child is going to run into tough situations, help him to dissolve the situation and not make the other kid feel bad for his challenges. Have some empathy, the kid's mom is not helping him, maybe you can. [ Reply | More ]

No, I told this to my child not to the other little boy. I have to say that I, as the mom of a sn child who gets full intervention, am actually apauled that this mom does not "get it". She doesn't get this child the intervention he needs and assumes he's okay in a group. Then expects the other moms to intervene. Sorry, but i don't have that kind of patience and it is not up to me to raise her child. I've done what I could to point out resources to her and she is not getting it. This is very frustrating to me whether you think I have empathy or not. [ Reply | More ]

As I understand it, high risk is only if your miscarriages were NOT chromosomal. Yours sound like classic chromosomal - what they call a "blighted ovum." It's a gross and outdated term that means that the zygote wasn't going to turn into a fetus because there was something chromosomally wrong. It sounds like you had crappy luck. Same thing happened to me and I got baby #2 right afterwards. Good luck. :) [ Reply | More ]
