[ - ] I don't want to even attempt Thanksgiving this year - it's at my parents house on the west coast. I have a brother and a sister, both married with kids. Earlier this year, dh got drunk, like falling-down drunk, and confessed that my sister was "smoking hot." I never knew he felt that way. But I firmly believe truth spills out after too much booze. This is so awkward - wwyd? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Also, time is a factor. I hate how people say it is "easy" to cook healthy foods. It is "easy" if you have the time...even 30 minutes is a lot if you've worked a 16 hour day and you're exhausted. It's not impossible to eat healthfully on a budget and within big time constraints, it just takes tremendous discipline and planning and often other things end up winning out (like sleep or decompressing).

No, he just doesn't want to do it at home and frankly he makes a mess. He is used to having 2 guys clean up behind him. He uses every damn pan. [ Reply | More ]

Pathetically enviable. But it is 24 hour "tours". The call comes in they go. Then there is the running into burning buildings thing. You have to want to do it. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My wife is a pediatrician and our three year old son is having an issue with using the potty for poop. Essentially, he just doesn't want to. I can see that she's nervous about the potential that this could be a problem if it goes on and he doesn't poop and he has to be admitted to the hospital for a "clean out", which I know she's seen a lot of. She's bwing kind of mean about it, forcing the kid to sit on the toilet and yelling at him if he doesn't poop. How do I tell her to back off when I know she's going to say "this is what I do- i know how to fix it?" 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My son did this off and on up until he was about 6. It's pretty common to withhold poop. He's a teenager now and perfectly normal and well adjusted. I can tell you that her method is absolutely wrong and damaging. Forcing and yelling will only backfire and cause her kid to develop more issues around it. How does she not know this as a Ped? I would not want her as my child's doc!! [ Reply | More ]

See if you can get your dw to back off for a few months and try again in, say, February or March. Sounds like everyone is pretty frustrated; you need a little time to chill out and not have it be as emotionally fraught. Let dc try every once in a while, and maybe in a couple of months he'll be a little more mature and ready to tie it another go. [ Reply | More ]

It's behavior like this that keeps therapists in business....she is obviously not in control of her own anxiety and she is going to create major psychological damage if she keeps this up. Put some fucking miralax in the kids milk and call it a day! And help understand why he doesn't want to poop in the potty (nervous? normal toddler resistance?).... [ Reply | More ]
