Corner or room better time out

What's the difference between making a child sit in the corner by themselves for a time out and just sending them to their room for a time out? My sister uses the children's rooms and I do the other. She thinks it's okay for her kids to do whatever they want in their room during this period and I don't. Which one of us is actually right and why?We used time outs for our three older children by sending them to their rooms during family time. But, it never really seemed to work because they liked…See More

Paying aunt to watch kids

My husband's sister has a babysitting business in her house. She is licensed to watch five kids and offers to watch our two kids every other week while we go to job interviews. We both have part-time jobs and are looking for full time work, so money is a little tight. Should we pay her what she charges her regular customers or what we can afford at this time?If your children are taking up space and a time slot that could be replaced with a regularly paying customer, I think she would appreciate…See More

Kids who talk too much

The kids have a cousin we will be seeing frequently during the holidays. This kid has to be the center of attention at every family gathering. Plus, he thinks he is never wrong and knows everything. How's the best way to tolerate Mr. Know It All without upsetting family members?My brother's son was like this. He had to be the center of attention at all times. His dad travels frequently and I'm guessing that my nephew was having a hard time adjusting to the absence of his dad, especially when he…See More

Young children need good role models

Each time I go to a grocery store, a restaurant, a park, etc., I hear back and forth arguing between children--as young as two to three--and their parents. Then, my own two children, same age, say exactly the same words to me. What in the heck is going on with today's kids and parents? Are parents afraid to tell these bratty kids to shut up?I noticed that my two kids started arguing with my husband and I quite a bit and searched for a reason why. It didn't take long because I quickly became…See More

Help grandmother with cat odors

Every year we go over to my husband's mom's house for Thanksgiving. The house smells bad because of her three cats and our kids hate going over there. Should my husband say something to his mother about this? What should we do?It's easy to get used to the smell of family pets if you are around the same area day in and day out. But that doesn't mean others who come into the home do not smell odors, especially from pets or even odors from a specific food frequently cooked. When I was a child, we…See More
