In case you are pregnant, avoid spending large sums of money on nursery equipment. Many baby items can be purchased at low cost stores like Wal-Mart or used from thrift stores, for a much lower price than at a more expensive specialty store. Another option would be to seek out hand-me-downs from friends and family.

Raising a child is one of the hardest jobs there is. You will need to remain firm with your children, but it is just as important to be fair, honest and, most importantly, consistent.

Have fun together as a family. Take a bike ride, go on vacation, visit the beach or take in a movie. Just spending time together doing what you love is the key. Your children will have wonderful memories using their childhood. And you will have more fun along with your children.

Sometimes, unpleasant disciplinary actions must be handed down. “ Initial, feelings; then discipline, ” is a highly effective approach that begins using a positive statement that acknowledges the particular child’ s feelings (right or wrong) and then explains your reason for setting the disciplinary consequences. It will help reduce the levels of resentment following the action.

If you need to use the restroom, delete word is upset at being put into their carrier, turn on the bathroom lover and sink.

    I used to pride myself as a nanny and assistant teacher in a classroom full of two year olds. “No thank you” “nice hands” …phrases used daily…I was able to tame an out of control child.
    As someone who was spanked, yelled at and more, as a child…I always promised myself I would never stoop so low, I “knew” how to handle that age.
    Boy oh boy.
    My little one, since very young has been the type to do the opposite of what was desired. Smartest child I have met…but difficult, and I’m at a loss. Struggling to not spank again yes, I’ve done it. Not to yell again, yes I’ve done that now too…how do I handle these problems??
    she’s negative ALL OF THE TIME. I’ve created little puppet shows, little real life adventures (compare to dora only more simple) and tons of other fun stuff for us to do for fun. She ALWAYS A L W A Y S makes something pleasant into something chaotic and stressful. It seems she’s addicted to pushing my buttons, and I try so hard to divert her to a new activity, let her free play, get some angst out…and it jus sticks. This “bad mood” she likes being in has gotten me run ragged.
    Nap times are a BATTLE. She would refuse to have quiet play time in her room, so I still give her opportunity to have quiet play time at nap, but if she is loud, she has to lie down in my bed and be quiet …if she does, she would get a little reward. Well, she’s over all of that. She lies on my bed FIGHTING sleep, kicking, fidgiting, tossing and turning, anything to keep her eyes open. I lay down with her and hold her still for a few moments, explaining “you’re tired, close your eyes, you’re making a lot of noise. You had a chance to play but you chose to be loud instead and stand/jump on your bed. You’re in MY bed now, and you need to be quiet.” She screams like I’m being awful.n at this point I needed to walk away, I’m getting irritated. She’s spent an hour fighting sleep, fighting every activity all day.
    It seems the only TIME she actually does listen is when I raise my voice! I don’t spank, which is hard…because I remember getting whacked for soooo much of the stuff she is doing. But what do I do? She’s going to be loud and spazzy during a nap time that she needs..I don’t like losing my patience, I hate it. I don’t know what to do. I can’t just sit with her, next to her all nap and FORCE her to sleep. I have homework to get done.
    H E L P!!!!!!!

    Who is the Man’s Man? He’s the real class act. He always shaves and wears clothes that fit. He’s worldly, educated, and a gentleman. He thinks that buttoned shirts are not just for special occasions and that newspapers have more than one section. While he is polite, he is not a pushover. He will swear when he needs to, but will try to control his temper. He can handle his liquor and keeps himself in shape. Most importantly, he will admit his faults and errors, because that is what real men do. He don’t have to be gay or straight, black or white, Republic or Democrat, Athiest or Evangelical; he just does what ever he thinks makes himself a good person that he can be proud of. For these reasons, women want him and men want to be him.
    Cary Grant, Gregory Peck, Denzel Washington are all examples of a Man’s Man.

  • louisewoods1984:

    Summary: I recently adopted a 1 yr. old boy from a family member who is unable to care for him. I currently have a 2 1/2 year old. I have so much experience with raising young kids but for some reason, I am just going nuts here is a list of problems:
    1) new baby (1 yr. old) is very clingy. I understand that he is going through withdrawal and having emotional instability issues so I try to give him lots of hugs and kisses and squeezes through-out the day, but he wants to be held ALL THE TIME. If I put him down he starts crying. I would love to hold him all day but my concerns are: A) that I will keep him from developing properly and he will become overly co-dependent, and B) that this will cause jealousy in my 2 yr. old who will begin to mimic the whiny behavior in hopes of getting more attention, and C) It KILLS my back and arms. So I try to encourage him to walk on his own (he knows how) I hold his hand for reassurance, sit on his own, I sit next to him with an arm around him for comfort, but I refuse to hold him every time he cries to be held because of the above mentioned reasons. This causes him to be VERY fussy during the day, which wears on my nerves and patience AND makes my 2-yr. old very unhappy as well.
    2) I have been trying to get my 2 yr. old to sleep on his own, (in his own bed, but in our room). He has till now slept in bed with us (my husband and I). He is doing really well, but new baby freaks out. Like crazy phobia freak out when I try to put him in the crib. I have tried putting him to sleep in bed with us and then transferring him to his crib after he falls asleep, but he just wakes up in the middle of the night crying at which point to keep everyone asleep and not bothered, I bring him to bed with me. I know putting him to bed with me, and then putting him in the crib may be giving him mixed signals. It is better that I just put him to bed in his crib which I have done a night or two (I know I need to be consistent) but either way, he wakes up in the middle of the night and screams and I don’t know how to put him back to bed without waking everybody. Also, till now, when I put him in the crib, & he screams, I leave the room and sit outside the door till he cries himself to sleep. I don’t know if I am doing this correctly, it feels horrible to just let him cry like that. I know there is some method of self-soothing just let them cry etc. But I may not be performing this technique properly. Please give me a good resource on this. My last concern on this issue is, I would like to let him sleep in bed with us till he adjusts better to the new living environment, but he wants to lie like on top of me. Still wakes up in the middle of the night crying and doesn’t stop till he falls back to sleep ON TOP of me, if I try to move him off he wakes and cries. So I haven’t been getting good enough sleep, so on top of having to deal with these two young kids who are trying to adjust to a whole new living situation, I am doing it with barely a 1/3 tank of gas. In other words, I am exhausted during the day, and trying to establish a routine, and keep the kids from killing each other.
    3) My two-year-old is jealous (big surprise). I have tried to make him a part of the process (explained to him a bunch that the baby was coming approx. 1 mo. b4 he arrived), tell him that he is my Big Boy and that Mommy needs his help with the baby. When I talk to him, he listens and seems to understand, but he does not want any part of this baby. He will not go near him (except to push him), I ask him to bring me a diaper to help change baby (he won’t), I think I should do stuff like get him to push the stroller etc. and I need to find other fun stuff that he would want to do, to get him involved, but I’m drawing a blank. He pushes the baby so much, he pretty much spends most of the day in “Time-out.” I finally had to “Spank his leg” because he shoved him so hard and it seemed the time-out is not working at all. He is not eating well, because he won’t eat when the baby eats at the same table, at the same time. I just want to cry all the time. Neither child is happy, I’m messing up. I asked my pediatrician what to do, she said to read a book about this type of unusual situation; bringing an adopted kid home with another young child, how to make them cope… (I looked online and couldn’t find anything-maybe I’m not using the correct search terms), I contacted a child psychologist, they said they don’t work with children this young.
    I’m going out of my mind! On top of all this, my husband works long hours, we have no family or friends to help out, so it’s pretty much just me and this madness, 24/7.
    I want my kids to be happy.
    I need to know good discipline techniques, a good daily schedule/routine to follow, and how to respond/handle 2 yr. old fits and bullying, and 1 yr. old fits and sleeping techniques, and how to find a good AND affordable baby-sitter.
    Please give me some good proven advice, or some great resources

  • Paul M:

    I am currently working full time in a physically demanding job. I am also going to school full time and trying to raise three children. I have been finding myself having to take breaks for just a few minutes to sit at work as I feel too exhausted to keep going. I am also finding it hard to stay awake sitting in traffic on my way home and am falling asleep trying to do my homework. Does anyone have any advice on LEGAL ways to get more energy? I have tried B12 vitamins and go through about five cups of coffee a day but it simply is not working. Any advice would be appreciated.
    More sleep and naps would be nice but are not an option. I average about 4 hours of sleep a night right now. That’s all I have time for. As far as family goes, they are all in another state. I have my boyfriend but he works too and never went to college and so doesn’t understand what I am going through. He watches the kids so that I can study so he does help but other than that he has his own things that need to get done.

  • Mistry:

    I’m a nanny for a 3-year-old boy.
    He is still nursed, and at nights, sleeps in his parents’ bed. His ‘bedroom’ is pretty much a storage area. He hasn’t even slept a single nap in that room, and the bed isn’t made up.

    On weekends, his mom gets him to nap by nursing, or he falls asleep in the car.

    He used to go down for naps easily, and stay asleep a while, when put in a sling. Definitely out of the norm for a kid his age, but his mom liked it, and it worked. Right after the new year, he started absolutely refusing to go in the sling.
    ONCE he laid down and slept himself. Another single anomaly, I was able to read to him until he fell asleep. Every other time, if I read to him (or lay down with him, talk with him, rub his back, etc.), he lays still for a few minutes, then starts bouncing around, playing, and doing everything possible to not settle down for a nap.
    Same goes for him laying down himself for a nap, whether it’s on the couch, guest bed, etc.
    I’ve tried bribes of every sort.

    Lately, I’ve bundled him up all cozy in his wagon, and pulled him around outside until he falls asleep. But the past couple weeks, he’s been waking up after 20-40 minutes.
    And yes, he does still need a nap. With no nap, or a nap that’s under 90 minutes, (even with up to 3 hours of “rest/quiet time”) he wakes up still cranky, and is miserable and ready to snap the rest of the day, for both me and his parents. (He’s been very angry lately, particularly when he’s tired: yelling and throwing his toys in anger and frustration.)

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Anything that I can do? Anything that his mom and I can work on together?
    Obviously, she needs to stop relying on cars and nursing to soothe him into a nap.
    When I asked for her help, she suggested I read some books she has (which are about getting infants to sleep through the night; no help at all) and pretty much said that *I* need to come up with something.

    Something needs to be done to allow him to allow HIMSELF to drift off to sleep.

    Please help! I’m desperate!

  • joevsyou:

    Hey guys! I’m hosting a 2 day camp at my house for kids ages 5-12. It’s a camp to raise money for Feed the Children. (: I do it every year, but this year I have more time to plan. Each day has a different theme. Day 1 – Pirates, Day 2 – Hollywood.
    So, my question to you guys is: Do you know of any games or activities that will go along with these camp themes? I need to entertain the kids for about 3 – 3 1/2 hours.
    Please keep in mind that I’m only 15, and don’t have all the money in the world. So, if these games could be fun, but not too hard to set up…that would be great!
    Thank you so much (:

    I’m 15 and I’ll be helping teach a 9-10 year old combo (ballet, tap, and jazz) class. Any tips? Also, is the age difference too little for the dancers to listen/ respect me?
