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 regular should my child's bedtime be?

How strict should my husband and I be about bedtime for our 5-year-old? He never stays up too late, of course, but we have trouble getting him to bed at a consistent time each night - partly because of my husband’s unpredictable work schedule. Our LO wants to wait up for him. Does this matter?

Need ideas for kid activity tables!

So recently I have been catching my daughter scribbling on the walls and my couch because she has just discovered "art" at her daycare. I am worried that my house will look like piece of crumbled up paper when she's done with it. I need ideas on activity tables and what she can do on them so that she doesn't use her energy toward our house walls!

When should my 5-year-old be able to read?

My LO is transitioning from preschool to kindergarten next month. She just turned 5, and I’m concerned that she hasn’t learned how to read yet. Should she be able to read by the time she starts kindergarten? Worried she might have a learning issue or be falling behind.
