I’m new to childcare and applying at places but I do have two sons and I do receive WIC and Calfresh. I want to apply to child cares but there to expensive for me. I do see how some say “government subsidy accepted” and was wondering if someone can explain what that is and how would I go about getting the help?
Parents I need help. My 2.5 year old son used to be a greater eater. Now all I can get down him is processed foods like crackers, fruit bars, chicken nuggets. He will no longer eat any of his favorite foods like tofu and noodles. I tried to get some pediasure down him and he spit it out. What are some nutritious foods I can get him to eat? I’m worried he is not getting enough nutrients.
I need some tips on how to discipline my daughter (13 months) when she does something wrong, I’m not sure how to come about correcting her. I sometimes snap but then I realize she doesn’t understand what I’m trying to tell her. I just need tips please help

They are aimed at harmonizing child-parent relations and developing the child's self-esteem. ⠀
■ COLLABORATIVE DRAWING (from an early age)⠀
• You can play around the table or on the floor. ⠀
• Spread out a large drawing paper or a piece of Wallpaper and glue it with paper tape to the surface. ⠀
1️ ⃣ option (INTERESTING): distribute who will be what artistic material. The father can be a wax crayon, the child can be a watercolor, and the mother can be colored pencils or pastels.
2️ ⃣ OPTION (Simplified): draw with the same artistic material, distributing colors among themselves. ⠀
*️⃣Do not be surprised that the child will want to change - it's interesting to feel in the place of others! ⠀
• Draw your own drawing, but on a common sheet. It will be great if you can create a complete image, but it's not terrible if everyone works in their own way, or you get an abstraction. Your task is to find what unites the drawing. ⠀
❇This is the drawing portrait of the dynamics of your family - feel its value. ⠀
🌿 What will this game tell your child? That everyone in this family is a separate person, and together you are one creative team. ⠀
🌿 And also about how different you can be, but how you complement each other. ⠀
■ Follow ME (from 4 years old)⠀
• The presenter (parent or child) draws the image in parts. ⠀
• After each line or fragment, it shows its drawing to others for a while, allowing them to copy it. ⠀
• Only the host knows what will happen in the end. ⠀
• At the end, compare the results of all participants and discuss what is similar and what is not. ⠀
🌿 What does this game teach your child? Take the initiative, feel yourself in the role of Creator and leader, your significance and value. ⠀
🌿 And this game teaches trust, not only the child, but also the parent. ⠀
■ This is the satisfaction of the Sucking reflex: it appears before birth, disappears by 1.5-3 years (according to some studies, later). ⠀
🌿 If the baby constantly keeps his fingers or fists in his mouth, it should be applied to the breast more often or extend the feeding time. ⠀
■ Sucking, squeezing and looking at the fists and fingers - normal development of fine motor skills of a child in 2-4 months. ⠀
■ This is a way to have fun, escape from discomfort, or calm down. ⠀
🌿 Put your baby to your chest on demand, and when they get older, teach them to calm down in other ways: gently distract and occupy their hands, hug them, and speak their emotions. ⠀
❌ Prohibitions, punishments, and abrupt pulling of hands from the mouth can lead to neurotic reactions! ⠀
■ the child relieves Itching and pain in the gums when teething. ⠀
🌿 Keep rodents and teethers close to your little Nibbler. ⠀
■ this is how the baby learns the world. The baby's mouth is filled with a huge number of receptors, and the lips and tongue are the most sensitive parts of the newborn's body. At 6-7 months, the child begins to use his tongue and lips confidently. To understand the world, the baby literally needs to feel the taste. ⠀
❌ In this regard, constant sucking of the nipple can interfere with this process. ⠀
❌ Strictly prohibit the child from taking objects in his mouth - inhibit research and development. ⠀
■ the child's immune System gets acquainted with the useful and harmful bacteria that fill the world around them. This happens during breastfeeding, when the mother's milk protects the baby from many dangers. ⠀
❗ ️ When to worry and contact a specialist: ⠀
📍 a child over 3 years old and sucking a finger is the only way To calm down or relieve tension. Perhaps your child lacks attention and emotional connection to you, or problems in the entire family system contribute to this.
The habit faded and suddenly reappeared. Your child may have experienced an emotional shock that triggered such a response from the nervous system.
