I'm going to start a no phones rule when at home with the kids. It's also a problem because, when I have it out, she screams to "watch wideos". 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

If Excedrin makes them better, it's likely caffeine addiction. Next time you have a long weekend or a week of vacation, cut caffeine entirely and don't take Excedrin. When you wake up with a headache, drink a big glass of ice water instead. [ Reply | More ]

maybe look into an extracurricular that really interests her. everything can change if she meets a few friends who have similar interests and starts feeling more confident in social skills. It is also okay to validate her. As long as she's happy, there's no rule that she must do all of the dumb 5th grade things the other kids are doing. I imagine she's a little self conscious and hearing mom tell her that nothing is wrong with her goes a long way. [ Reply | More ]

It's a judgment call always but on something like this I would not keep him home. Unless he could have strep - mine will get strep with literally jsut a stomach ache. But I've started to know what to look for in a red throat. Anyway if I am sure it's not dangerous (Strep) or a fever, or vomiting, I generally send. If it has more symptoms than a stomach ache and goes on for a while I would probably keep home one day to rest and see the doctor, e.g. if it's a bad cold. [ Reply | More ]

My kids are little so I don’t know what I’m talking about but... if it’s irrational, expected, scientifically explained behavior, why take it seriously?

It may be irrational. It's very often hormonally driven. It's also real. And sometimes it's hard to tell if the "I hate You" really means "I hate that you make me clean my room" or "I hate myself." So you have to pay attention to what's going on behind the scenes. DC is 15 and one of their classmates attempted suicide last year. You have to take it seriously. [ Reply | More ]

It feels worse every year. I've developed asthma and I love running in the trails this time of year and pay for it when I do. So, it's indoors for another month or so. My DCs had very bad allergies and asthma. I have them see their allergist in mid-Feb and start their program at that time (nasal, oral and inhaler if needed). I don't open windows unless after 1 pm and limit them being outdoors before that time too. They've grown out of allergies but it was five years of struggle. They couldn't go out for gym or recess.

I think in the long run it will but in the meantime doing these other things will give him immediate relief. Shots are over time. You can start Flonase now. Simply follow the directions. It's a steroid so needs a few days to build up but he'll feel it quickly. I have my DCs do flonase in morning and night and the allergy pill at night since it makes them drowsy. Good luck!

It is worse every year. I posted above on another OP. NYC plants only male trees, because the city doesn't want to pay to clean up the seeds and fruits from female trees. If they planted only female trees, there wouldn't be enough pollen for the trees to produce seeds and fruits, so there wouldn't be a mess, and people wouldn't have horrendous allergies. Call the city and demand a policy change. [ Reply | More ]

My anecdotal experience is that it’s worsening. My 5 yo DS woke up with hives all over his legs a few days ago. He’d eaten strawberries and a cinnamon roll, neither new foods, and then later I remembered I’d used a new Cerave ointment stick (which I even crowed about here!) on him. I speculated out loud what the origin of the hives might be, and resolved to pitch the ointment and maybe go easy on strawberries too. The next morning, he had one hive in his leg and one on his stomach. The kid told me that he got up in the night, found the stick, and applied it to see what would happen (and he didn’t want to be allergic to strawberries). I was very terrified/proud of him.

But she never got shots, just Allegra and Pazeo drops. We also have Allrex drops as a back-up but have not used. Anyway when she was about 9 it was like flipping a switch, now she has almost no symptoms during allergy season. I highly recommend Pazeo. [ Reply | More ]

It's only been two weeks but I really wish I had done this sooner! Even as a teenager, which seems when many on UB got their tats?

I nearly chickened out of the appointment because when I showed up it was at a tattoo shop, and like many UBers replied with her, I "judgy judged" NOKD. My friends and family are so impressed with the results they've already booked their appointments with the same person too :) FWIW I am blonde so worried about not finding an ink that would look good.

I enjoy watching Cyndi Lauper's "Girls just wanna have fun" video because they are trying to scandalize their parents by getting extra piercings in their ears and getting a buzz cut on one side of their hair. Nothing shocking or permanent. [ Reply | More ]

I have 20+.I’m 35 and started getting them when I was 19. All of them are incredibly well designed and very personal. Most of the visible ones are pretty small. I work in the arts and, surprisingly, get the most compliments on my tattoos from moms at my kids’ school. I regret a few but luckily those aren’t visible. [ Reply | More ]

Unless the moms at school also have tattoos, I suspect that they are just trying to be nice. Even, and perhaps especially, the "well designed" ones can be ott. A beautiful design on paper is one thing, on skin, it's something else. [ Reply | More ]

Speak for yourself. I've seen amazing tats that I haven't seen compare to another medium like paint or sculpture. An art form in itself. [ Reply | More ]

No thank god. Most are terrible to begin with and get worse and worse as skin sags, others added, tastes change. I predict a reversal since they are so mainstream right now not having tats will become cool. [ Reply | More ]

No way. First so many bad artists. Also I grew up associating them with concentration camps and skin heads. Still low class in my opinion. [ Reply | More ]

This. Crime in general is down on a per-capita basis from previous decades and centuries, and the overall crime rate in the US is about even with most of Europe. However, three factors: 1.) Much more news today than in the past. Even in the same city, the news used to only carry a few events a day, once a day. Now, every single crime hits a news feed. 2.) The US has a lot more deadly weapons than other parts of the world, so each crime has the potential to be more violent. 3.) Crime is down per capita, but when you live in a city like New York, per capita is still a lot of people committing crimes. Anyone who lives in a less dense population, with better education, and who limits their news to top stories, will not feel overwhelmed by "the world today". [ Reply | More ]

To me looks like this teen has some disability. He wasn’t able to defend even at the start of the attack. [ Reply | More ]

Agree. It was purposefully filmed only showing the victim. Meaning the filmed did not fear the attackers. My guess is not random - or victim would come forward [ Reply | More ]
