I am a pro camp WOHM (and in the interest of full disclosure, I am a teacher and work at a camp in the summertime). I think camp teaches all sorts of important things - but I think that it's different compared to a summer at home. I don't think either is better. I do think there's a huge difference between a town camp with high school counselors and a well-run day or sleepaway camp. I also think you have to find the right "match" - not every child is going to like very camp. [ Reply | More ]

I have always been SAH and believe that camp can be awesome, if the kid wants to go. I had one that went away every summer for 7 weeks starting at age 7. Another did an activity that was firmly rooted at home and so did that all summer. One tried camp for a week and hated it, so that was the end of that. I'm up for letting my kids have any experiences they want to have. However, like adults, some kids are extroverts and risk takers and others are introverts and are good at independently amusing themselves. There is no one hard and fast rule IMHO [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I know full well that as a divorced parent, it is imperative to take the high road and never say anything about exDH. And in the last several years post-divorce, I haven't. Just venting here as sometimes it is so hard - he hasn't paid CS or a dime of any kind of extracurricular (we are supposed to split 50/50), he says terrible things about me to our DCs, and moves between trying to be super dad for one DC and only occasionally engaging the other DC. On top of this, he cannot communicate with me in a civil way at all, except on the rare occasion when he communicates with me in front of DCs. I wish I could just ignore but given DCs, we do still have to engage. Advice appreciated, this has been a hard few months for me. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

So "the West" will help Christian or atheist or maybe the odd Jewish Syrian, and the Arab states (I suspect you don't mean Indonesians should be pitching in, you mean UAE etc) will help the Muslims (it gets complicated with Lebanon because there are Christians in Lebanon as well.) Hm sounds complicated to segregate our help along religious lines, let's focus on the fact that they are humans. And anyway, Muslim/Arab states are already helping out: most Syrian refugees end up (and have ended up for the past few years) in Lebanon and Egypt. Should the Gulf states do more of an effort, that might be the case, but it doesn't look like the refugees are heading out there. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Advice? DC is going into 1st grade at new school, new neighborhood, new bus, and doesn't really know any of the kids yet. Was so excited over summer and is now anxious, saying he doesn't want to go to school, and will refuse to get on the bus. Last week, at camp, he had a death grip on me and I forced him on bus while tantruming, and when I picked him up it was like it never happened - so thrilled w camp. So I imagine similar will happen for school, except this time the bus driver won't be as patient! Any advice on how to ease the anxiety/regression? I thought of doing a run-through the day before, or offering a "proud of you" reward at end of day at pick-up, but DH thinks that's excessive. Thoughts? TIA. 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think he should take the bus from the first day. I think he should get a small reward each day for getting on the bus. A big reward for doing it all week. Repeat the next week. Following two weeks just a big reward for every day. Next week shift focus to what is he going to be for halloween. I understand how hard it is to do this but to help him manage his anxiety it is better to have him go on the bus. Maybe the first day can be a drop off so he is comfortable with the school but he has to do the bus or it will get worse and worse in his head. [ Reply | More ]

I say just set the precedent that you believe in him and he can handle school/bus and ride out the fuss.

When she got to 1st grade and I got better at setting limits and saying I would walk her to the bus and give her a kiss and she would have a great day - voila - she rose to the occasion. Believe in your kid, you have seen him handle this new stuff before, and he needs you to know he can do it before he believes it himself. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] 52 Leonard is sinking. It sunk a foot on one side, problems with foundation. I can't imagine it will ever be able to open. Lawyers are swarming. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
