My almost 8 year old daughter can not sit still. She will hang upside down on a chair, jump up and down or do cartwheels the whole time she is watching TV. She will bring jump ropes, hula hoops,…Continue

Is anyone familiar with the Fontaine Gill location YMCA? I hear they have a nice outdoor pool with a splash area for little ones. I can't find any good pictures on line.I am thinking about getting a…Continue

Speech Issue or Bad Habit
4 Replies

My daughter needed speech therapy briefly around age 2-3. When she was learning to talk, one of the things she would do was add a hard sound to soft ending words. For example, "car" was "card". That…Continue

What would you do?My daughter will be on an elimination diet for 10 days, per her allergist. The whole process takes at least 19 days due to the number of foods she is eliminating. We decided to do…Continue

"I researched it around 2006 when we first started using sitters and I was surprised to see $10 was average. I used to get anywhere from .75 to $5. I pay $10. I should mention we also have a dog who can be a bit of a pain and needs to be let out…"

"The medication did not seem to have an effect on his cycles of vomiting. So, we eventually stopped. We were able to identify some triggers-lack of sleep is one, and we are able to control it somewhat. He also has ADHD and sensory issues. We will be…"

"Thanks Orange Blossom. From what the article says, she doesn't seem to have the symptoms of APD but I am going to keep it in mind. I am not ruling anything out! I thought for sure my son had APD when he was younger. He definitely had all the…"

"Taryn, they don't really come in cycles. The vomiting is just always there, as of a year ago. Before that she had stomach issues, but not this bad. The headaches aren't as frequent. The neurologist is treating her for abdominal migraines…"

"Since you mentioned your daughters behavior as being somewhat out of the ordinary, and not knowing her medical history,  perhaps you should bring this to the attention of her primary care physician ASAP. I would not wait for the next regular…"

Shawn Spivey replied to Jmarr's discussion Hyperactive 2nd grade girl
"This is an intriguing explanation.  For the symptoms you've described, it can sound a lot like ADHD and for those that I know that have it, it usually is something that presented right away and very young, not something that came upon them…"

Hyperactive 2nd grade girl

My almost 8 year old daughter can not sit still. She will hang upside down on a chair, jump up and down or do cartwheels the whole time she is watching TV. She will bring jump ropes, hula hoops, scooters, etc. into the house so she can constantly be moving. She likes to chew on stuff too (she swallowed the metal ball from Mousetrap yesterday "by accident").The curious thing is that she wasn't always like this. I started noticing it more in the past 6 months. I don't think it's ADHD because she…See More

"Check out the VPK program on line. It's a free pre-k which is about 3 hours a day, but many of them offer extended care. It is not faith based, but if it is located in a church, the extended care option would probably have some faith based…"

"That table they showed looks pretty out in the open if that was the actual table she sat at... it sounds like it may have been a stinky diaper too, so even if she were not as out in the open, there is still an odor. It looks like a casual pizza…"

Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion Public Diaper Change Gets Family Booted
"I was unable to view the link for some reason. I can't imagine changing a diaper at a table, but I am trying my hardest to figure out why one would.  Was the car not an option (no car, rain)? Was it done on top of the table in full view or…"

"I guess it depends on the situation. Did she use a mat, and was it on a booth seat or right on top of a table? People's bottoms and bare thighs are all over the booths, so it's not really expected to be the most sanitary place in the…"

I live clear in LW. Meeting up would probably be hard. I have a pattern for infant and size 1 cloth diapers and I'm gonna try that. I have a bunch of bigger ones. Thanks, Jennifer!
