    It depends.

    Some areas of study require practice and repetition for mastery. Math and foreign language come to mind. I do see a practical use for homework for such subjects to reinforce what...

    I agree. I don't think players exhibiting lawless behavior deserve such high profile careers. Boot them. Talent is required to play at that level, but it is still a privilege. And they are role...

    What color?

    If they're the itty bitty black ants, good freaking luck! We have those at work, and according to the pest control, there's no way get rid of them.

    If they're the little honey...

    If you show up and give mama an outlet for adult conversation, THAT is a gift! Or at least it was for me. I enjoyed visitors and didn't care if they came empty-handed. But then again, I like to...

    Now who's making assumptions? :rolleyes:

    Yes, I've invited those people over. And called to check in on them as a friend, to see how they were doing and what their kids were up to. What I've come...

    I had a different experience. A couple close friends and a few that I didn't consider that close asked if we needed anything, called after texting to verify it was a good time, or showed up bearing...

    You're putting yourself in that position. And part of it is likely fueled by your idea that your sisters need to forgive and forget. Almost like you're covering for them rather than accepting that...

    Well, I suppose you could obtain the name of the person at the top of that organization, hunt down their phone number, and start calling them every time you get a call. Turn about is fair play,...

    It's a royal PITA and absolutely impossible to do discreetly.

    I agree.

    I'm still pumping at work. There's a locker room (separate from bathroom) designated as a go-to area, and they added locks to the door just for pumping. However, employees occasionally...
  12. Adding to this, the limits on physical restraints...

    Adding to this, the limits on physical restraints may render that option completely ineffective.

    For instance (not autism related), my maternal grandmother spent the last years of her life in a...

    To whom are you replying?

    I mentioned an integrated system. Connection between the car seat/base and vehicle would be necessary.

    I really don't think a seat-only solution is viable.
  14. An integrated system actually isn't a bad idea. ...

    An integrated system actually isn't a bad idea. Child seat anchors are fairly standard, so there could be a connection point at the anchor and seat base for weight sensing. For newer vehicles...

    I use Amazon Mom in conjunction with my Prime Subscribe & Save, and I like it. Can't beat the 20% off diapers and dog food. I haven't dealt with Prime Pantry though.

    Different people react differently to different stimuli. Why is one person violent and another not? Who knows. But if she figured out that attacking people created calm in her world more...

  18. Kids are kids, but parents NEED to parent.

    I also look to the parents. What is being done to mitigate the meltdown?

    My DSS has some issues and, at 10, is still not above a meltdown. They're not tantrums in the sense of defiance, but he...

    There is something funny about people complaining of "entitled" parents inconveniencing others on account of safe seating for their child. Are children not entitled to fly safely? Is it not...

    It's funny how something as simple as organizing your cleaning supplies can help. I like to have my chemicals grouped, so I can grab a "bathroom tote", for instance. For some reason, it's just...

    It would be mind boggling if people went through entire days like that. As far as I know, no one does. It's bits and pieces, getting caught in the middle of something to change gears and losing...

    I respectfully disagree. There is thinking that the child is a priority and there is making the child a priority.

    I gave my husband as an example. He fully believes he can watch "Hell's...

    Having a child is daunting. You hope for health, but there's never a guarantee. One of my biggest fears related to IVF was the prospect of some significant birth defect. It's one thing to have...

    I think, ultimately, this is about re-prioritizing.

    My DH is someone I fear could forget the baby in the car because he's almost always in work/phone mode or glued to an electronic device. It's...
