Sometimes he's a gem, other times he is just plain horrid ... screaming, kicking and occasionally if I get my face or fingers too close - biting. Does anyone have any tips??
I try really hard not to shout & yell and speak in a firm, calm voice telling him not to do it, but find that really hard some days. I have even thought of putting him on his naughty spot when we get home, but that the time lapse in between doing the naughty thing & punishment would be too long.
Would appreciate any help or ideas.

My child won't drink from sippy cup or cup...just won't really take up the practice of drinking liquids all day long. If I want the fluid to get into her body I have to go to her with a cup and say, Ok, drink the juice or the milk... I am always concerned about her getting enough fluids as she just won't take up the "constant sipping" practice. I see other kids just going back to their little cups all day long, but not my child.
What can I try to help with this issue?

My 3 1/2 month old daughter is
(a) a cat napper - she naps for 3-4 30 minute naps daily and everything I have done to lengthen these naps, has failed miserably. Whether she is in her swing, on my lap, in her crib or in her stroller being moved around she will still wake up after 30 - 40 minutes.

Hi,
I'm a Mom of 18 month old twins. My son has a habit of pulling my daughters hair for no reason. When he goes to do it I know he knows what he is doing because he is looking right at me and my husband and waiting for a response. We tried to talk to him (not sure if there is much to reason with and 18 month old but we tried) we tried to put him the pack and play for a little time out and then spoke to him after.

Need some help, we are expecting a baby in 5 months and have moved our 3 year old to a new room, as the nursery will be for the baby. He has the same bed and bedding, yet his room is not attached to ours anymore it is on the 1st level and is much larger. It has been 4 nights and it is a fight and cry out every night...we have trouble getting him to go to sleep and then he is up anywhere from 3am-5am at our bedside refusing to got back to his room. We have tried a few things with no success, any good ideas? We are all very tired, including my 3 year old...I feel like I have a newborn again, already!
