In response to a confession. My family is the same, all because my 2yo's favorite toy is Jesse from Toy Story. He doesn't like woody, just Jesse.

My little, sweet, 3 year old nephew wants a My Little Pony. He likes the show, mainly for the "evil pony" and the boy ponies they have on there...he just likes the stories and stuff. My BIL won't let him get a My Little Pony because he "doesn't want him turning into a f*****t". It makes me want to go out and buy him a My Little Pony for his birthday. Hell, maybe he can keep it at my house and only play with it here.

I've discovered that one of the best things in life is when DS23 is just watching his DD1.5, or playing with her, or whatever, and he looks over to me and says, "Isn't she just the best?" .... Yes. Yes, she is. And so are you, DS.

Sometimes the projects assigned by the teachers of my kids were too hard for the kids to do alone. Expecting a 3rd grader to draw freehand a map of the continental U.S. from scratch was ridiculous. Even the parents couldn't do it very well. Likewise "make a volcano" for a 4th grader. Really?! He didn't even know where to begin. We used chicken wire and papier mache, which he'd never heard of. Dad had to cut the chicken wire into the right shape. We had to figure out what to put this construction on and it was hard to find a board the right size, especially for a 4th grader without access to spare wood. He painted it OK. As for what he learned, he could have learned more about volcanoes by looking them up and not wasting the whole family's time.

In response to a confession. My son went through it. I did everything possible to help him with it, both naturally and taking him to dermatologists for every medication and skincare product available. I swore I'd never put him on Accutane because of the scary, dangerous side effects. But that's exactly what we ended up doing because it was the last resort. And it was so painful to see what he was going through emotionally because of the way his face looked. Some days he didn't want to go to school because he was so embarrassed. Once he began taking Accutane his cystic acne cleared up quickly and he has very, very little scarring.

Overheard a mom complaining the daycare wasn't teaching her 4 year old how to properly wipe herself. Shouldn't that be something you do as a parent? Why do people expect everyone else to teach their child. Even if that is something the daycare says they will do, you should also be doing it at home.

I don't have a lot of friends and I start questioning myself and thinking I am the problem. I then have friends over with their children and I realize that it is other people. They came over to have lunch and visit for a while. As soon as they got here one child kept going into the fridge and taking food out without asking. While I was cooking they both kept whining they wanted to eat and requesting all kinds of things. I told them no and I was making lunch. They then went and got their mom and she came in and got them food. Lunch time came and they didn't want what i was making which I made sure prior to them coming over if it was something they would eat because they are very picky eaters. Mom, said yes they would but then they refused to eat my food and mom kept asking if they could have other things. During me setting out the food on the kitchen Island they kept coming up and touching the food. They also kept going through cabinets and dressers. So frustrating.

Have any of you ever had cystic acne? What did you do to get rid of it? I'm 47 and my face and periods are going crazy.

In response to a confession. It was important to me that ds do things on his own. When project time came around, first we'd see if we had any books on the subject; if not, we'd go to the library. I'd spend a lot of time talking about the subject so he'd get a good grasp on it. One time, his SM wanted to help, for the first and only time - solely bc the project was on a country that speaks the same language as the one her company is based in. I digressed. Ds went there for the weekend, but said they didn't work on it. The next time he'd be there was Tuesday night, and it was due Wednesday. So SM did it, all ds had to do was glue things on the posterboard. As if that wasn't bad enough, he got a lower grade than usual because she missed several required points, and he can't tell you a thing about this very important country except that there's a goofy museum there. I was so pissed!!!

In response to a confession. My friends do this for their kids. I have to wonder if maybe they are vicariously living through their kids and they are the one that wants the A+ on the project and don't care if the kid learns anything from it or not. I had a mom who tried doing this for me and my sister when we were young and we got so fed up with it that we just stopped telling her we had projects so we could do them ourselves. I think she got the hint after a little while but I don't think most kids would've been like us and actually want to do the work themselves.
