Screen time in school bus
I'm looking for some advice here. My son (9) takes the bus to school along with few other kids. Some of his friends have started to bring Switch/ iPad and they play games on their way and back from the school. Now our son feels left out and wants to take a screen. We are not in favor of this for couple of reasons. We generally want to limit screen time and would rather have him chat with his other friends (who don't bring a screen) during the ride or even read a book. The ride is an opportunity for him to have some fun interactions with other kids and socialize. The other reason is that we don't want him to give in to implicit peer pressure. He has never asked for a screen for the bus ride before and has always enjoyed speaking with other kids. Seems few new kids on the bus have changed the dynamics here a bit. We want to be reasonable with him and hope that we are not overthinking the situation. The kids are not allowed to use screen in the school.
Why I had to get up while drinking my coffee this morning
1. Toddler had to go pee 2. Console baby who hit his head on something 3. Blow toddler's nose 4. Take baby away from electric outlet (which is covered but still don't want him playing with it) 5. Help husband find his keys 6. Wipe baby's nose 7. Take toddler away from electric outlet who knows very well we don't play with it but wants to copy baby Seven. That is seven times I had to get up while drinking one cup of coffee. This story is brought to you by a (soon to be) 3 year old and an 8 month old.
Should I take my baby to the er?
My baby has been sneezing a bunch ever since she was born (she’s 13 days old) and it’s picked up more recently. She bows coughing a little bit too and almost wheezing. She sounds like a pig snorting kind of. What do I do? I’m terrified…
As apps and e-books evolve, reading to and with young kids takes many forms, such as voice activation. Naomi S. Baron writes that considering social, linguistic and engagement priorities can help determine how we best read with toddlers and preschoolers. https://t.co/uu9jz8xbma

Necessary travel to COVID hotspot
Hello. My father passed away yesterday in Florida. My husband and I live in Indiana with our two kids, ages 6 and 4. We need to travel to Florida next week for my father’s funeral, and need advice on how to do this safely. My husband and I are both vaccinated, and all four of us wear masks whenever we’re in public. We do not feel comfortable flying during this time, so that leaves road travel. I thought about renting a drivable RV so we could very much keep to ourselves with a restroom/sleep area, but the concern is no safe way to have the kids in car seats. Our van does not have a hitch, so we couldn’t tow anything behind. Our other option is driving down, packing food and eating in open areas, but how are people feeling about restrooms and hotels now? Is there any relatively safe way to do this? Thank you for any advice you can give us.
Almost 4 year old kid, not sending to pre-school, how to teach?
Context: 1. My wife and i have been working from home ever since covid lockdowns last year. 2. Due to COVID risk, our kid (currently 3.5 years of age) has been staying at home with us (with us managing work and kid somehow) 3. Given that he cant go to kindergarten, we have to coach him at home while we work. 4. Given this is my first kid, and our limited interaction with our parents, consider that i have no idea of what is thought in Kindergarten in USA. Request: 1. What resources can i use to get my kid to go thru kindergarten curriculum at home?
