We have a 2 ½ year old son and are expecting a second child in a few months. What’s the best way to prepare our toddler for the new baby and tips for an easier transition?
My daughter has always been a good student, but she recently started lying about her homework and missing assignments. Why would she do this? How do I help her be more honest and responsible about her schoolwork?
Our son does not respond to timeouts as a discipline. We’ve tried understanding his feelings, whether he’s acting out due to fatigue, hunger, etc. but it seems his bad behavior is associated with testing boundaries. He’s strong willed. What can we do to get through to him before his bad behavior, such as hitting the dogs, gets him injured?
