Places for a picnic in Gardena?

My daughter keeps asking me if we can have a picnic. It’s really cute! Does anyone have any suggestions of places in the Gardena area where we can go to have a nice picnic as a family? Maybe a quiet park or something like that? Shade would be really nice too. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to hear your ideas :)

Irvine Weekend Activities for Toddlers?

Hey Irvine ladies! What do you do with your families on the weekends? I feel like we always end up staying in and it makes me feel like we never do anything new! Does anyone have any ideas? My girls are 2 and almost 5 years! Thanks so much mamas :)

What children's museums should we go to in San Bernardino?

Does anyone have any recommendations for some children’s exhibits at museums in the San Bernardino area? I feel like on the weekends all we ever do is take our son to the movies, and I’d rather do something more educational at least some of the time. Help please! Any suggestions are welcome!

How do I handle toddler tantrums in public places?

My 4 year old has been recently throwing tantrums at the market for candy and it's really embarrassing so I just give in and buy her the candy. I don't want others to judge me so I give in but I know it's not the right thing to do. I would love some help on what i can do to stop these!

My son is too obsessed with Dr. Seuss!

My son is so funny! He is 3 and loves listening to Dr. Seuss books at school. But what I've discovered is that he is taking his imagination to another level and it trying everything they are in the books! He wants me to make green eggs everyday and is constantly doing crazy things like Thing 1 & Thing 2! How can I stop this?

What is "purposeful play" at a daycare?

I've heard friends mention that their child's preschool/daycare does a lot of purposeful play. What does this mean? Should I be worried that my son's teacher hasn't mentioned this? Is it something we can try at home?

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.

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!

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?
