  • It's really easy. If you don't want to see blogs written by natural mothers, then just don't read them. It's really a no-brainer.

  • by kakuehl Last comment: Today at 04:43 PM
  • I confess that after over 20 years with the same doctor (whom I really like) he goes over my family medical history every time I have a physical, making sure he still has everything in the records. (His records include the fact that I placed my firstborn for adoption, BTW.) I confess, Leeah, that since you like him and consider him a very good pediatrician, I would continue to take Sweetpea to...

  • Adopt me?
  • by waitinggirl Last comment: Yesterday at 12:56 AM
  • Send me an email Hi buddylovebabi, sorry for the late reply. For some reason I couldn't send you an email. Anyway, after consulting with YFU, my mum and I had a discussion and we think that the exchange programme might not be the best option for me. But thank you so much for suggesting this and trying to help. Thank you :).

  • by RavenSong Last comment: Today at 12:58 AM
  • I read it, and my reaction is meh....just sounds like a story that the anti-choice crowd is using with their current "adoption, not abortion" strategy. It's very well written, though.

  • 6 yr old jealous of other kids
  • by KarinLombardo9 Last comment: 27 Feb 2015 11:47 AM
  • Just like adults, children can experience and act out feelings of jealousy that can often be painful for them and other family members. In some cases, professional help from a family or child psychologist can be helpful if your attempts to solve the problem at home have not been successful. In order to address such issues visit PFF as it is completely dedicated to valuable parenting tips with the...

  • First of all, welcome Thomas! Glad you are here. :) Secondly, I hope you won't be hard on yourself. You care and want to make things better for her. It might be hard for your daughter to absorb all of that right now, but keep being a part of her life. Help her seek out resources. It will work out. -Spud :Chewie:

  • Anyone else adopted a child with HIV/AIDS?
  • by WizardofOz Last comment: 25 Feb 2015 08:48 AM
  • No, I don't know what your expertise is. Ok, then don't say that I know less than the doctor and that I just based myself on a newspaper article. How arrogant of you. But I do assume that a mother who has been raising a child with HIV for 6 years has gone beyond the Daily Mail Online for research. I assume nothing. The OP stated that her child has 10-20 years to live and that she prepares...

  • My little one is scared and sad
  • by ruth74 Last comment: Today at 04:28 PM
  • I treat kids with PTSD. I don't do emdr, specifically because it does require kids to talk about and focus on the specifics of what happened to them, and some kids (I primarily work with adolescent boys, who this is a big deal for) really aren't ready or able to talk about it. I do trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy. It does have a component of talking about what happened, but it comes...
