[ - ] Need some advice from moms of teens and adults. My oldest is a teenager and I have two younger kids, 11 and 8. Lately I'm finding myself alternately sad and freaking out about my kids growing up and moving on. I think my big kids are great fun and I love their emerging personalities, but sometimes I just wish I could go back to when they were little. Is this normal? Do I need to see a therapist? Will I survive the transition and. They start to go to college? Help this crazy mom please... 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My oldest is only 5, and I am dreading this. A friend of mine who has kids that are all in college told me that when they hit middle school, she started to find something else she could really be passionate about. That really helped her. Last night DS wouldn't go to sleep and said he wanted me to lie down with him, so I did. I asked him if he was sad about anything, thinking perhaps that is why he wouldn't sleep by himself. He said no, he just missed me and was happy when I was near him. Melted my heart and made me realize that the time is coming that he won't want me so I need to embrace it. Your post helps remind me of that, so thank you. [ Reply | More ]

Younger DD wanted the top bunk, and older DD didn't care, so we told younger DD that she could have the top bunk when she could climb up & down by herself. She was about 4.5 when she did it. (s/o Now they are 8 and 6, and they both want the top bunk, so we built two loft beds with a "tree house" and rope bridges between them. It's so cool, I want one, too.) [ Reply | More ]

I was allowed to do a lot of unsafe things as a kid (I am surprised I survived but those were the times) and I fell out of a bunk bed and got severely bruised. Listen to the recommendations and get a trundle bed instead. [ Reply | More ]

My twins started sleeping in bunkbed at age 4, I put the calmer one on top. Tiny room couldn't fit side by side beds and a dresser so it was by necessity. [ Reply | More ]

Depending on the kid, possibly as young as 4 or 5. Would have to be a pretty sensible kid, though, I didn't trust my ds on a top bunk until he was 6. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Do you view education more like a 45 minute piano lessons or 45 minutes in a please-touch area of a museum? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

piano lesson. discovery rooms for for parents to take a break. Unless parent is really leading the kid through the exhibits - in which case it is more like a piano lesson anyway. [ Reply | More ]

That is a trick question. Unless you know what you a looking for 'discovery' based education is not going to yield much. Compare a kid who has spent a month learning about insects (basic anatomy, different habitats) let loose in a botanical garden with a kid who is just let loose. Kid 1 will notice wings/wingless, camouflage/conspicuous etc. kid 2 will see a bug. First the piano lesson, then the discovery experience. [ Reply | More ]

Formal education is mostly lessons. The rest of your free time is constant self-guided discovery. [ Reply | More ]
