Does you toddler every so often wake you up on the middle of the night and want to sleep with you? This in itself is not necessarily a bad thing. A child coming to the parents’ room is actually a great signal that your toddler is processing what makes him or her more able to sleep. It can show great initiative and problem solving skills as he or she finds that the first scenario is not working and trys another method to get them to sleep. From there, you can help teach your toddler and encourage him or her to advance on this methodology and begin processing other ways to help get past the sleep problems in toddlers. Maybe making sure their favorite Teddy Bear is always in their room to watch over them?READ More on Overcoming Sleep Disorders In Toddlers

I just finished reading a very enlightening article that Dr. Neill Neill wrote entitled Help Your Kids Grow, and Then Let Them Go. What I got out of this is the importance of letting your children make their own mistakes and don't fall into the trap of trying to protect them and gain control as they get older. They will natually rebel. Ideally as our children grow we should grow with them our relationships needs to become more supportive and encouraging. This can be very hard.

Studies reveal that Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER), generally called Acid Reflux, is common among children of varying age groups, though acid reflux in children, especially in infants, may be overlooked easily. An estimated 7,000,000 children in the US currently suffer from GER. Children’s immature digestive systems are easy victims to acid reflux and as they grow up (up to one or two years of age), most children naturally come out of the problem. In case the child’s complaints continue, treatment by a pediatrician will be in need.READ More on Acid Reflux in Kids – Symptoms and Options

Every week whether it is a Sunday, Wednesday or another day set aside for religious services, parents everywhere often hear those words after telling their children to get ready for mass, service, temple or synagogue.

It doesn’t matter what your faith is or what your religious upbringing may have been like. Whether you are Catholic, Protestant, Muslim or Jewish, every parent takes on the responsibility of helping a child or children in their faith journey which often is met with resistance.READ More on Religion And Your Child – Keeping The Faith
