Opinions on spanking kids?

My husband and I are trying to find the best way to discipline our sons. My husband was raised in a family that spanked children, but I was not. I think because I was never spanked, I really don’t feel okay with spanking my kids. Moms, help please! Ideas on ways to discipline, and also feedback on whether or not spanking is still a thing nowadays would be amazing. Thank you!

Is it okay to post pictures of my toddler on social media?

My daughter’s first birthday is almost here and I’m starting to wonder whether or not it’s appropriate to share photos of her on my social media. Most of it is public because I had never cared much about the privacy of my own photos before. It’s mostly just my friends who follow me I think. Most of my friends post pictures of their families. Do you think it’s okay to post photos of my children on social media, especially if the accounts are public?

Dance studios in LA for toddlers?

My LO just turned three and she is obsessed with the idea of ballet lessons. Her older nieces that live out of state are both in ballet, which I think sparked the interest. I’m not sure how doable weekly classes are with our schedule, though (depending on where they are located). Any recommendations of dance studios in the Brentwood area that cater to kiddos?

Tips for flying with a carseat?

I’m about to go on a trip with my son. He won’t be needing his carseat on the airplane, but we’ll need it for the rental car once we arrive in Seattle. Any tips on flying with a carseat and what to do to make sure it doesn’t get too scratched up?

Best pets for young kids to care for?

What are the best pets for little kids to take care of? My daughter is four and she really really wants a kitten, but my husband is allergic and I think maybe a smaller animal might be better for her first pet. What are some good pet options for little kids?

Should I start my son early or late for school?

Hey moms! My son falls right within the cutoff for starting kindergarten, so we can wait a year and he’ll be a little bit older than most students, or we can start now and he will be one of the youngest. I can see pros and cons to each side, and that is making coming to a decision a bit difficult. Help!

Breastfeeding vs. Formula?

I’m a brand new mom and after all of the books I read when I was pregnant, I had decided I wanted to breastfeed my son when he was born, but it’s so hard for me. It hurts and we’ve been having a lot of difficulty with him latching on. What are your opinions on breastfeeding vs. formula. Is it really that bad if we don’t go the breastfeeding route?
