    that seemingly have it all together--sahm, good husbands, pillars of community, calm kids, etc... Not sure how to help him make the connection between his behavior and how people react. I am worried. Obviously, I tell him to calm down but he resents me for that. He's 8. I don't think he has ADHD but house is not calm and I can only do so much about that. Obviously I know that's the solution but outside of that what else is there?

          people. My DS is different than yours, but he has such social anxiety that he has trouble speaking and making eye contact, as a result people tend to think he's kind of an asshole, really. He seems cold and disinterested, when what's happening inside his head is anything but. He sometimes even THINKS he has said something aloud when he hasn't. Just working to get him to look at people more, to smile more, to answer questions, to sometimes initiate conversation with other kids and not always wait for someone else to--- it's been a long slow process.

      parenting can change the temperament of a child. Maybe your kid will grow out of it, maybe not. Maybe he has ADHD, maybe not. If he has friends and is doing well in school and is not a behavior problem in school, then ignore. At the first moment that the school suggests something else might be going on and/or you see him starting to struggle academically, it's worth getting him evaluated. I have a kid who was like this, who is now in college--happy to answer any questions.

        develop this aware until much later. For my ds, it was probably mid-teens. You can't "fix" something that you can't see. For now, you can be his eyes and point things out to him, but you need to let go of results because they may not come for a very long time. He's going to need your support more than anything else.

        have more boundaries, be more strict, more consequences, more punishments? It is very possible they have tried those things and they don't work. I posted earlier about having a kid like this. I still remember the parent-teacher conference we had where all the teacher could talk about was how fidgety he was. As if we didn't know, and as if we had any power to keep him from acting that way. Sorry, this subject runs so deep and painful for me. Good for your friends for being "very accepting."

    irritates me. Almost all capabilities can be modeled on the normal distribution so while 90% of kids may cook with east at 14yo, there are still many whose sensory issues make it so that overcoming the heat of the flame is a huge barrier. I'm probably sensitive because I work with young people who have autism and are of average or greater than average intelligence IQ wise. The cooking thing is a huge issue for them (I'm not saying that the OP for that post had a child with autism-I'm talking about the insensitive responses by people who don't think that they may not know the situation). Ditto when people post about their dc needing help to go places, or with academics. Enough already, we get it, your kid is independent. But don't assume that there is not a valid reason when a kid needs more support than what is typical.

      A man was going to the house of some rich person. As he went along the road, he saw a box of good apples at the side of the road. He said, "I do not want to eat those apples; for the rich man will give me much food; he will give me very nice food to eat." Then he took the apples and threw them away into the dust. He went on and came to a river. The river had become very big; so he could not go over it. He waited for some time; then he said, "I cannot go to the rich man's house today, for I cannot get over the river." He began to go home. He had eaten no food that day. He began to want food. He came to the apples, and he was glad to take them out of the dust and eat them.

    board game camp, art camp, etc. and he's not interested. He says he wants to stay with me all summer and have us do activities together. FWIW his younger sister is in camp and loves it. I feel like by allowing him to stay home I'm allowing him to self limit what he's expose to -- he's missing out on new activities and meeting new friends. On the other hand he gets a lot of that at school and everyone needs a break, right? When I push to hard on the issue of camp he gets really upset. Should I just let it go? I don't mind spending the summer with him I just don't want him to miss out.

  21. Elementary Online Studies Activities for ages 4-11! Help science! Have fun!...(more) 6-10-2021 4:36pm (0 replies)
    Hello! I'm reaching out on behalf of a group of researchers at Yale University. We study child development with fun activities where children answer questions about pictures and videos. For the past few years, we have worked with thousands of children, helping us learn how children understand the world, and how teachers and parents can best teach children in ways that help them learn. Families that sign up are emailed an offer to participate in a paid study every 6 weeks or so, and they then just choose an appointment time and meet us on zoom. Note that this is for your kids (ages 4-11) to participate in, not you, but we thought people on this forum might be interested! See link for more information or to sign up: https://www.thechildlab.com/

    Anyone can cosplay everywhere. But you will usually find cosplayers at comedian conventions, specially the united states's bigger attracts like San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic Con. At conventions, cosplayers can show off their costumes in the front of fanatics who will genuinely apprehend the characters (even the difficult to understand ones) they are portraying, as opposed to drawing the clean stares they could get hold of at their neighborhood rec middle or TGI Friday's.

  24. Elementary My daughter's school discourages gifts for teachers, but I want to give them something. They say "handmade gifts" only. What is appropriate that teachers would appreciate? 6-1-2021 4:48pm (4 replies)

    • Teachers didn't make up the no gift rule. Just get a gift. Put a gift card in a a card. Who wants a desk load of homemade gifts? No one, that's who. 6-1-2021 4:50pm

  25. Elementary The way of going "bathroom" outside...(more) 5-28-2021 8:25pm (7 replies)
    Hi. At first please don't scold me about this posting. It's not a topic to talk about with my coffee friends. We have 3 kids of almost 8, 6 and 4yrs. The eldest and the youngest are girls. When we started potty-training our eldest we often had to have her going bathroom outside (we're living in a very rural area). It never really worked properly to lift her up in the classic girl-pee-outside-position. She often hit her pants or our shoes anyway. The nursery teachers refused to help her when she needed to go when they were in the woods, so she found her own way to handle it by sitting with her bum completely down on the ground. We were OK with it because it was the only way to keep her pants dry when it happened. Her younger siblings (even the boy!) copied that and of course we were happy that our kids are able to handle their outdoor-bathroom needs almost fully independently. Whe thought that they would learn the "appropriate" way later. But now our el

      But now our eldest turns 8 in August and her brother 7 in september and they still do it this way. They don't make any effort to change it. Of course they don't need to "go" outside as often as some years ago, but IF they have to go, they still sit fully down and do their thing. I don't know if and how I should talk to them about. What should I say? "I prohibit you to sit down to pee outside?" They'd surely look to me as I'd be an alien. We actually don't want to invade their privacy that much either and we're not sure if we care too much about and if we wouldn't better let them do as they want. Our youngest does it the same way and we totally appreciate it because it makes her (almost) independent with this thing instead of always needing someone to lift her up. The way of sitting down completely also is a big privacy-benefit because their intimate parts don't get visible to anybody else.

        What do you think? Should we leave our elder kids doing it their way or should we talk to them? (Sorry for bad english if there's one. It's not our native language).

              ...there's the need. We live in a very rural area and we're often outside where no bathrooms are around. They don't do it if it's not really necessary.
