Better alternatives to time-out?

I hate to say it, but I think the terrible twos have started with my daughter. Time out means nothing to her. She just gets up over and over again. Parents, do any of you have tips for me on how to make time out work, or other ways to discipline her that she’ll listen to?

What are some good gyms with daycares in the Moreno Valley?

I have my Kendall in a daycare that I LOVE, but I need a solution for when I go to the gym on the weekends. My friends have told me that there are some gyms that have daycares, but I haven’t had any luck with finding any in the Moreno Valley area. Does anyone have one where they like both the gym and feel comfortable with the daycare facility there? Thanks so much ladies!

Where should I buy maternity clothes in Gardena?

So I’ve gotten to the point in my pregnancy where I can no longer wear any of my normal clothes anymore. I’ve done some shopping for maternity clothes, but I feel like all of the ones I’ve seen have been either ugly, too expensive for clothes I’m only going to be able to wear for just a few months, or they’ve been ugly AND too expensive! Please help - where should I look for maternity clothes? I’m in Gardena. Thank you thank you thank you.

How to stop my toddler from biting kids at daycare!

My kid is 2 and he keeps on getting reports from his teacher that he bites others when he wants something that someone else has. I never witness it because we don't really have other friends with kids his age. So I don't know what to do.

Is Play-Doh safe for kids to play with?

I generally buy Play-Doh from Target but I started to get a headache from the smell and I don't think it's good for my 3 yr old to play with anymore. I want to know some things parents use to substitute it.

How do I know if I'm spoiling my child?

Hi, mommas! My little one is an angel and I’m lucky to be able to give him most all of the things he asks for, which is a privilege I didn’t have as a kid. I’m wondering though, at what point does it become too much? When does it become spoiling him? I want him to stay as sweet as he is for a long time.
