Expertise

I am a stay-at-home mom of two great kids under the age of four. But even good healthy kids can be a challenge at times. I can answer questions about crying, sleeplessness, general insecurity (on the part of both mom and kids!), potty training, co-sleeping, weaning and more. I am a member of La Leche League so I have access to plenty of information on breastfeeding and related problems. In more recent months we`ve had experience dealing with discipline and socialization skills as well. We all have rough patches with our kids, and days when we just think we`re too tired to cope--but sometimes just talking to someone else who`s been there can be enough to get us through. I`ve had plenty of good support, and now I`d like to pass some of that along.

Experience in the area

I've been a mom for four years now. We regularly attend playgroups and La Leche League meetings. My son goes to a co-op playschool where I often help out. In the past I've worked as a volunteer for Big Sisters in schools helping kids with their reading and writing.

Hi,    How your daughter reacts would depend on a number of factors I'm sure, such as:    - What her relationship is like with her mother and grandmother... is she already pretty secure in those relationships

2012-04-19 cant cope with my toddler:

Hello Lou,  Well, I really feel for you. Kids at that age can be very frustrating, I know.   Here is what I think is happening: she isn't getting enough--love, stimulation, attention--so she becomes more
