[ - ] 3 yo DS is afraid to poop on the potty. Is almost totally trained for pee. Any tips or advice? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My ds was EXACTLY like that. Only one thing to do. Stay home for a few days (in this heat, not so hard) and just get him out of the diapers and into the underwear. One piece of advice: buy underwear he really really wants. He won't want to poop in them and will be sad if he does. Worked for my ds. [ Reply | More ]

We did the Thomas thing too. A few thoughts on that front. The first time he poops in the potty, tell him he can go to the store and pick out ANYTHING Thomas. That will give him incentive for the first time. Then tell him that for every 5, 10 or whatever poops he makes, he can get a train. So he has a reason to start and a reason to keep going. Once he's fine, you can taper off the bribes. [ Reply | More ]

you have to ask? If there is a heat alert out there and these classrooms are horribly hot then they should close early.

Isn't it funny how different their scores could be. 94 poster above you and ds got a 98 on SB. But think he didn't make the cut because he seems young. His ERB was really low.

The norming for age is a different issue than the format. The SB is administered by licensed psychologists, and they have some leeway in helping a child along who might be withdrawn or introverted. Don't know anything about ERBs. [ Reply | More ]

That's true. And would def. explain why my ds did better on the SB. But I do wonder about the ERB. I don't think they're psych, but I do think they're "professional testers." However, from what I understand they aren't really allowed to help a kid along at all. [ Reply | More ]

I did testing for ERB for several years. All ERB testers have at least a Master's in psych (school or clinical). Many are graduate students in their final years of training. Just as with the SB, the test makes (or at least should make) every effort to draw out an shy/introverted child. [ Reply | More ]

talk to any SB tester and you will be told that the format of test administration is strictly adhered to -- no "helping" a child along. the fact is that young kids might test differently on different tests and with different testers. trying to disect why a kid scored the way he did on one test but not on another is just making yourself feel better. the majority of kids tend to test consistently across tests -- which could mean a 10ppt differential.

I had a miscarriage and got pregnant 6 weeks later without ever getting my period. It was pretty traumatic for me, though. I really wanted the pregnancy that didn't take and after the miscarriage, I decided I didn't want any more kids. The first 6 months of the pregnancy were really hard on me emotionally and I'm not that way generally. I've never been depressed before that in my life. I think my hormones took a LONG time to settle. [ Reply | More ]

I hope you're ok too. I am fine now. Before I had the miscarriage, I had no idea how hard it was to recover from. The experience sure enlightened me. It's also tough having a miscarriage when you already have a child. You know exactly what you're missing and the unrealized expectations can be really rough. If you are pregnant, just be prepared for a little ambiguity about the pregnancy and know that it will pass. It did for me and now my daughter is a happy healthy 14 mo. GOOD LUCK!! [ Reply | More ]

I don't know why I'm not able to reply to your post below, but just wanted to wish you good luck too and thanks again. I think you're absolutely right - I thought that having a miscarriage now that I already have a child would be "easier" given that I don't have to worry about not ever having a child, but in fact it's been the opposite. And I think it's precisely as you said - you know what you're missing and somehow I started to imagine a person much sooner than last time. Anyway, all the best to you and your babies!

I agree with you, I think the number of 99s is much higher than 1/3 of the total. In D3, 192 kids were above the 95% and 157 were above the 97%.

Everyone keeps forgetting that most of the highest scoring kids are likely going to TT or Hunter.

Are you high? Hunter had 48 spots. so most of the top scorers are not going there. Most people I know with dcs going to tt privates never had their dcs take the Olsat. [ Reply | More ]

I think there are probably a lot of 99s who will just put A and then maybe one top district program and otherwise go private. So it might not help those set on A, but will lower the numbers for other districts programs. [ Reply | More ]

I definitely agree-I have seen people posting they will give up a spot for Anderson and PS 9 or LL (maybe one or two said the same for Nest) [ Reply | More ]

Hunter accepted 48. They also went to at least 10 on their wait list for boys and a few names in for girls. That is about 60 spots. In addition, in response to the poster above you in all of the polls on this site (and there have been many) there were never more than 25 99s and only a small handful (probably fewer than 5) willing to ditch private for Anderson. Finally, while we have a very Manhattan or perhaps Brooklyn centric look at the world there are in fact over 550 people outside of Manhattan who scored 97+ and I doubt that the bulk of them (Park Slope, Brooklyn Heights, Riverdale, and a few pockets in Queens excepted) that will schlep to Manhattan for the citywides.

I'm in D6 and know 2 99s, both of which ranked Anderson. If you look on the Yahoo! G&T group, you'll see several 99s in Riverdale who ranked Anderson first. You would be surprised how many far away 99s ranked A first. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, and I included Riverdale and all of Manhattan in my estimate. But I still think there are about 300+ people outside Manhattan not considering citywide. And while everyone here is convinced that people are geniuses in this city only 6% of the kids who took the test for entry grade got over 97%, 8% (2% more) got over 95% and 14% (6% more) got over 90. That means roughly 1% each for 90- 96, and around 2% each for 97, 98, 99. Why would the distribution be 4% 99 and 1% everything else? [ Reply | More ]

NEST or TAG. Ranked Anderson first but we all know how unlikely that is even with 99. [ Reply | More ]

I think the 99s are particularly motivated to obsess about this, since they have best shot at citywides. [ Reply | More ]

With a 98, the best we can hope for is NEST. But I'm very undecided about it. Is it better than a decent private? [ Reply | More ]

99 - ranked Anderson #1 and NEST #2 - otherwise we'll go local. SInce we're dealing with a lottery, I don't know which to expect, but I pretty much expect to get into A or NEST. [ Reply | More ]
