My preschooler has started stealing things! What do I do to stop it now?

My daughter has started stealing things. She goes to friends’ houses and comes home with tiny toys in her pockets or I’ve caught her taking money out of my husband’s wallet. What can we do about this? I’d be mortified if she was ever caught stealing something!

How to keep my toddler from rolling off his bed at night!

My child has been having a hard time sleeping in one position and is always rolling over! He's only 3 so I get it, but I wonder if placing a railing on the bed would hurt him? I currently let him roll onto another mattress that we have laying on the ground, but I also want to let his body learn that rolling will hurt if nothing is there. Is this wrong?

Best Childcare for Working Parents?

ISO opinions on the best options for childcare for two LOs. I’m a former SAHD going back to work, meaning my wife and I will both be full-time again. We have a 3-year-old and a 14-month-old. A nanny seems more cost-effective than 2 daycare bills… WDYT?

Do toddler seats work for potty training?

My husband and I have been trying to potty train my son but we have been struggling with him wanting to sit on the toilet. We currently use a training potty for him but he resists so much! I'd love to get feedback on what other people use. Any tips for potty training? Should we get a toddler seat?

How do I encourage my toddler to be active?

What are some “active” playtime ideas I can do with our 4-year-old? We’re in an apartment without a yard, so ideally indoor-friendly unless we’re at the park. Want my son to start building good habits because his older brother is way too into video games.
