How can I handle bratty six year old I babysit?

How can I handle bratty six year old I babysit?

Be clever& in charge: The child is challenging your authority to tell them what to do, etc. Let them know you are the boss, but make them think they are. Try giving them choices wherever possible. For instance, getting ready for bed - they need ot brush teeth and put on pj's. Ask them to pick which they want to do first - it gives them a feeling of control, and you still get both things done. But you are in charge! ...Read more

How can i increase my height? I am now 18 years old boy

How can i increase my height? I am now 18 years old boy

Hard to say: Growth centers in long bones determine how tall you can grow.Most growth centers will close at 16-19 years in males. After that happens, you are done. If your growth centers are open, a balanced diet/rest ; healthy physical activity will support good growth.Their are no special diet or exercises that make you taller. Gh injections would only get you to your genetic height faster, not add extra. ...Read more

How should I teach my 4 year old son to pee standing up? I am his father.

If he's not tall : Enough to stand on the floor to urinate into the toilet, you may want to wait a while. The most stable stool that goes around a toilet is a little looster, if you feel you must teach him now. If he feels insecure or scared, he can regress to diapers or have toileting refusals. If you want him to watch you from a safe place, target a few cheerios or tinkle targets (from amazon) with your stream. ...Read more

Keep a well balanced diet and make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need. Don't cut out exercise as it is very good for you. Weight lifting and other muscle building exercises can help you increase your body mass. ...Read more

My 3 yr old refuses to potty train. Should i be worried?

My 3 yr old refuses to potty train. Should i be worried?

No: 3 year olds can be quite defiant and oppositional. The more you push, the more they may be stubborn. Make it available to him or her, and then back off for a couple of months. Get some fun books that make toilet flushing noises, invite child into bathroom to mimic mom or dad. Do fun things like try to sink the cheerio or toilet tissue. Applaud success but don't comment at al on failures. ...Read more
