How do I help my toddler with his social skills?

Any ideas to help toddlers with their social skills? My son is an only child and we don’t send him to daycare or preschool yet. I love that I get to be home with him, but I worry about him being too shy and scared to make friends when he does start school.

What are some good indoor activities for my toddler?

What are some creative, small space-friendly, indoor activities to try with my 4-year-old? On rainy days or when we aren’t free to play outside, all she wants to do is play with the iPad. We’re trying to encourage her to lay off the screen a bit.

Separation anxiety at daycare - help?

My 5-year-old is sick. How do I keep him from infecting our infant?

We have a 5-year-old at home and are expecting a baby girl next month. Our son is excited to be a big brother, but I’m worried about keeping those kindergarten colds and germs from our newborn. I didn’t go out and about to many public places with our son when he was a young infant for the same reason. Tips on how to handle without upsetting big brother or worse, getting baby sick?
