*Trigger Warning* I Contacted CPS Due to Something Disturbing my Son Said That Led Me to Believe He May Have Been Sexually Abused: Advice?

My daughter comes home from school defeated:Advice???

I’m sorry this is so long, but I have nobody else to ask! What would you do in this situation? My child is in the 3rd grade currently. She has hated school for the last two years, and I mean, she absolutely hates it! She is constantly making negative comments like I don’t want to go to dumb school, and I hate dumb school! The worst one was two mornings ago she told me she wanted to burn the school down with the teachers in it! I couldn’t believe the words that came out of her mouth as this was 5 minutes after she had woken up! To give you a quick recap of her last 2 years of school – 1st grade she had a teacher who was literally the devil she bullied and belittled my daughter for nearly the entire year up until the last three months when I stormed into the school demanding they put my daughter in another class and not let that teacher have any sort of contact with her ever.

My 3-year-old has started stuttering: Advice?

My son is three years old. He has been talking well before one years old. Recently I have noticed he has started stuttering and in the past week it is getting worse. I plan on calling his pediatrician Monday. I was wondering if any moms have gone through this? Do you think he may out grow it? Im starting to get very anxious. I have tried telling him to slow down but I think he just gets super excited. Any suggestions?

My dentist told me my daughter had a tongue tie: Advice?

Has anyone dealt with a tongue tie with their child? Did you choose to have it corrected or wait and see if it corrects itself? My second child is a year-and-a-half, just went to her first dentist appointment and was notified that she has a tongue tie. It was never noticed by any other physician seen, nor has she has any issues with breastfeeding or eating and is in the stage of learning to enunciate. We’re going to get a second opinion [especially due to her not having any issues], but I’m just curious to hear other mom’s situations/circumstances and routes taken. [noted to add that I’m aware each child is different, and medical opinions are obviously taken into dire consideration, but I do believe some doctors are all about unnecessary procedures just for big pharma and insurance companies to make a few bucks off the hard-working families (Please don’t get me going on this subject ) ] Anonymous Community MemberThis question was asked by a Facebook community member who has asked to remain anonymous.

Is it normal to be sad before baby comes?

I’m 19 and 37 weeks pregnant with my first baby. At the beginning of my pregnancy, I was put on an antidepressant, which seems to be helping me. However, I’m overwhelmed lately between fighting with my bf and being around my toxic mother. I have a few friends since becoming pregnant. I’m not working and In college at the moment. I’ve tried to get back to work; however, people don’t want to hire a pregnant person, but I do plan on going back to work after the baby comes. Due to this I’ve become sad and want to cry all the time. Everything irritates me, and I’m so uncomfortable being that I’m so pregnant. Is being sad before delivery normal?
