[ - ] 3yo ds has suddenly started throwing major tantrums over random things -- putting on his shoes; going into a car; etc. I mean, screaming, heaving, crying tantrums. I've been dealing with it like I did with others, but these are intense. just looking for some reassurance that this is totally normal. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Totally normal. Don't give in as your ds is testing his limits. He's trying to figure out if the rules are still the same. I've been trying to present a choice: You can wear your tennis shoes OR your flip flops...Then when it escalates I ask do you want to go to X or go to bed, because that crying tells me you are tired and need a nap. Doesn't always work, but it will get better. [ Reply | More ]

I read that part and i think it means that the report is there to give additional information about child that the tester saw. report can either correlate with great results and/or maybe explain that a child who did not test well has ability to do better but bc of certain circumstances did not do too well. (ie had bad day) or it can explain that although a child tested well they were not focused etc etc etc. [ Reply | More ]

I remember those days!!! I got some of the worst headaches of my life when I was pregnant last summer. I was told that it was hormonal and due to having dry sinuses. This helped me: Ice cold wash cloth on my eyes, sudafed (or anything of that type that your Ob allows)tylenol, saline spray to hydrate your sinuses and clean passageways of pollen and also STAY hydrated. A lot of pregnancy related symptoms ease up when you drink enough water. good luck! [ Reply | More ]
