    My 2 year old refuses to brush teeth at night

    Hi Everyone, I have a 2.5 year old daughter that puts up a significant fight each night about brushing her teeth.  We've tried to be consistent between the two of us as parents, but at times it seems she is still winning the battle.  Any ideas on making teeth brushing fun or to break through the struggle about doing it?Thanks!

    My 15 month old daughter has always had dry patches on her upper arms, back and belly. I have been using Aveeno Naturals since she was a few weeks old, and in general that keeps it at bay. The more winter advances the worse she is getting. The patches are turning red and angry looking. It's worst right about her diaper in her back. I have kept up the lotion and I have been bathing her in...

    Hello, My daughter will be 2 years old on the 15th of this month. I have encountered not only the "terrible" 2's or should I say terrible all the time...just the good ol' toddler years LO, but my daughter has found that she thinks biting is ok. Now I have yet to figure out if she does this out of anger or not. Because the two times it occurred we were laughing and happy and being playful. The...

    Bowlegged 2 year old

    Has anyone had a 2 year old that is still bowlegged and trips and falls when he runs? What is the treatment, if any? My son just turned 2 on the 17th and the doctor said we wouldn't be concerned unless he was still bowlegged at 2 and he is. His next well check is in a few weeks, but it's been bothering me.

    Intro - anger issues

    Hi. I have a son who will be 2 on the 17th. He is very verbal and speaks in sentences (the total opposite of my speech delayed 4 year old). He gets VERY angry and he screams and hits. We are working on these things, but I was wondering if other parents had strategies that they have found helpful. He gets really angry when you say things like he can't have more fruit snacks when he asks for them...

    Two year old doesn't like diaper

    My LO just turned 2 1/2 and now he's always taking his diaper off which is driving me bonkers! He knows what pee/poop is; I have a potty seat and a seat to go on my toilet but he hates to sit on either. It's been 18 years since I've had a 2 year old having to deal with this and I'm a bit frustrated at the end of the day having to clean up. Any wise words will be greatly appreciated :)
