Raped in kindergarten, made me bleed in both anus and vagina. Happened several times. Hurt to go to the bathroom. Why would it bleed? Is this bad?

Raped in kindergarten, made me bleed in both anus and vagina. Happened several times. Hurt to go to the bathroom. Why would it bleed? Is this bad?

I am so sorry.: What a sad thing to hear that you were sexually assaulted as a young child! I am not surprised that you had bleeding. Your tissues as a five-year-old were certainly not ready for any sort of penetration. Even consenting adults in loving relationships often use lubricants for greater comfort during sex. I am assuming things are back to normal, and i hope you have sought counseling to help you. ...Read more

How can I prepare my child for kindergarten?

In the month before attending school put a little more structure into their day with some time for arts and crafts, reading books, quiet time, practice writing name, etc. This will help prepare them for some of the activities kindergarten will have. If possible figure out what friends will be in their class and schedule a couple play dates. ...Read more

Why am I so scared of my child germs and getting sick in kindergarten?

Why am I so scared of my child germs and getting sick in kindergarten?

Normal, but: It is stressful to parent and kindergarten represents a separation where you have little control of the variables involved. Accept that you have done your best in the past to prepare the kid. Proper vaccines protect against the worst issues. The kid also has some experience with germs, building an immune system from past colds and other issues. ...Read more

Son is in kindergarten. Receives minimal 4 hours of homework per night. Complains of headaches. Could this be the result of this rigorous routine?

Son is in kindergarten. Receives minimal 4 hours of homework per night. Complains of headaches. Could this be the result of this rigorous routine?

4 hours of homework?: No wonder he has headaches! 5 years old is a little young to be working a a full-time job. That is assuming only a half day kindergarten. Let him be a kid for awhile-your lucky he just has headaches. Does he need a bleeding stomach ulcer to get your attention? Enough is enough. You probably should get his vision checked also. Discuss your concerns with his doctor. ...Read more

Separation: anxiety, but usually experienced on the other side, children, rather than parents, maybe if you let it out you would feel better, it's only the first day, you can still try to be a happy camper, if still suffering, talk to your doctor, might need some mild anxiolytic ...Read more

How reliable is a negative nst result? In kindergarten speak please as i don't understand the sensitivity and specificity tap dance :). Thanks

Dancing lesson: Sensitivity at kindergarten implies the likelihood the test will be positive if the pt. Has the disease. Specificity at kindergarten level implies the test will be negative when the patient doesn't have it. A high% of both is a very good test. High specificity, the test is good at showing problem not there. ...Read more

Why do I feel so ashamed of my history of rape? I know it wasn't my fault, i was in kindergarten. But 10 years have passed and i'm so ashamed of it.

Why do I feel so ashamed of my history of rape? I know it wasn't my fault, i was in kindergarten. But 10 years have passed and i'm so ashamed of it.

Sorry 4 your pain: You say that you understand that it was not your fault, but you still feel ashamed. It is likely that you understand at an intellectual but not at an emotional level. This is not uncommon. If you are interested, i would recommend therapy with a psychodynamically or psychoanalytically trained therapist. It is likely that you will gain significant insight into why you still feel shame. Good luck! ...Read more

Should i be embarrassed of the toys used in kindergarten rape? Why would it be awkward? I thought they were just toys? Help, 17 y/o girl.

Should i be embarrassed of the toys used in kindergarten rape? Why would it be awkward? I thought they were just toys? Help, 17 y/o girl.

Childhood rape?: If you were raped in kindergarten, I am sorry. No child should be treated this way. I'm not sure what "toys" you're describing, but if you mean sex toys used on you, this would be awkward and frightening. Have you been in psychotherapy after these experiences? Were you able to have help or support from anyone in your family about it? If not, i hope you'll work with a good psychologist soon. ...Read more

Need a suggested time my son need to go to sleep. He wakes up at 630 am and will be starting kindergarten gets out at 2pm. They don't take naps?

Need a suggested time my son need to go to sleep. He wakes up at 630 am and will be starting kindergarten gets out at 2pm. They don't take naps?

Outgrowing naps: Some kindergartens phase out nap time. If your son has to be up at 6:30am, I would suggest a bedtime around 7:30-8pm. However, if your son is used to taking an afternoon nap, he may end up falling asleep in the car ride home from kindergarten. Depending how long he sleeps then, this may push his bedtime to a later hour. ...Read more

Does writing letters backward mean my child has dyslexia? My daughter is in kindergarten and is learning to write. She often writes letters backward, and mixes up words with similar spellings. Does this mean she has dyslexia? .

Does writing letters backward mean my child has dyslexia? My daughter is in kindergarten and is learning to write. She often writes letters backward, and mixes up words with similar spellings. Does this mean she has dyslexia?

.

It : It is completely normal for a young child to reverse letters when first learning how to write - it is not an indicator of dyslexia. Many kids will continue to confuse b's and d's, q's and p's, well into first and even second grade. The same is true for confusing similar spellings of words. I've attached an article that talks about dyslexia and what to look for. Good luck! ...Read more
