[ - ] I'm a sahm and during the summer, I'm out at playgrounds and pools with my dc every day. I'm embarrassed because nobody else has to cover up as much as I do in the sun. I have fair skin, a family history if melanoma, and thin, fine hair. I wear long sleeves, big hats, and sunglasses. Everyone else looks summery and carefree in tanks, topknots, and aviators and I look like a giant freak. I'm only late 20s but I feel like the sun protection ages me. I'm really down about it. I wish I looked glowy, tan, and carefree. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I am you in twenty years and I look younger than everyone who was carefree and tanning. First of all, this is 2016, everyone should be doing what you are doing - we all know how dangerous the sun is. Second, you will be so glad as you age. Seriously, I have been let's ting me skin and wearing sunscreen daily since my early 20's and, while I certainly don't look like I am still in my twenties, I also doing look my age. Embrace it!

Cover up. I am in my 40s and my skin still looks good. Only go without the coverups when you are out at night. Unless you have a lot of melanin by being of Med, Latin American or African descent, keep doing what you are doing. The Asian moms cover up even more than I do. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My 3.5 year old is a total disaster. She has never been a calm kid and has always been very opinionated but over the past couple of months she's also turned real mean and out of control. She will play by herself and be sweet but maybe half the time she is either somewhat out of control ("I do what I want," swatting at my husband and me, scratching at us, that kind of thing) or totally out of control (that plus huge all out tantrums). My husband and I are both stressed and don't always deal in the best ways and we're having a new baby soon. These are part of what's behind this. I know we need to be more consistent and set limits and such but I feel like I need some kind of guiding force here. Any recommendations on things to do, read, etc.? 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

np--Ames recommends getting a babysitter for a 3.5 year old! The premise is that the child is less likely to act up and be frustrated with an outside person. it's really a hard age--I think especially between a mother and daughter. [ Reply | More ]

Next time she acts up ignore her and gather every toy/possession. Lock it in your closet. Take away any form of entertainment or fun. Basically: treat her like a prisoner. When she behaves well, start reintroducing things into her life. If the bad behavior starts again you take it ALL away. No "I'm taking away ONE toy", no warning. Every misstep means she starts over again with nothing. Any screaming is ignored. Turn the volume up on the TV and pretend she isn't even there. [ Reply | More ]

My sweet and charming 8-year-old was a MONSTER at 3. I left so many play groups early because I instituted a zero-tolerance policy for hitting, and she wasn't much better with DH and me. I think it's an age where they're really trying out their independence and have no impulse control. Agree with ignoring/removing entertainment. And just wait -- time will help. [ Reply | More ]

I grew up going to Amagansett on the weekends (we lived further west in Suffolk county). It's just a bunch of towns with beach access.
