Welcome to Channel Mum Support Groups. A place to be with other mums where you can feel safe to have a little more open ‘mum’ conversation.
That’s such a great idea, also helps to keep little ones entertained whilst you get the shopping done!
A cold pack on the bridge of the nose can help reduce the swollen blood vessels which is what causes you to feel blocked up. A netti pot or similar can help but I don’t know how readily you can get hold of them.
Another option is steam. As long as there is no medical reason for you don’t to do that. (Some people with breathing issues are advices against it) a shower with a towel rolled up at the base of the door to stop steam escaping the room or the classic bowl of boiling water and a girl over your head. It do be careful of scoulding etc.
I hope you feel better soon. X
Good morning, my name is Jen and I am one of the trained parent helpers here at a channel mum.
I am so sorry to hear that your children are being bullied, it must be heartbreaking to know it is going on. Where is the bullying taking place?
It sounds like you have done all the right things with regards to actions taken, do you know the mum of the 8 year old? You say she is encouraging it, I wonder how you know that?
Assuming this is all taking place outside of school can you make sure you are present when they are playing, and intervene where necessary? Don’t shout or get aggressive just step in and remove your children from the situation. You are absolutely right to teach your children violence isn’t the way forward.
Perhaps let us have a little more information on where the bullying is taking place and we can give you some more advice or suggestions on the best way in which to tackle it.
Sending you a hug though, it must be very distressing for both you and your children.
I’m really struggling with my 18 month old at the minute. Since he was about 10 months old he cries hysterically around anyone but me and his dad and won’t be held by anyone else (even his grandmother). It’s exhausting and family have stopped coming round because of it, meaning he’s even more upset when they do because he’s not gotten used to them. He will cry so much he will nearly make himself sick. I’m always anxious taking him out in public and have started avoiding it by when I’m myself. Took him to see Santa yesterday and it was disastrous, he was the only child screaming and crying and got quite a few stares from people. It has also caused some arguments with my husband because he blames me for not taking my son out enough to get socialised. It’s started to get me down because I’m thinking maybe it is my fault a bit. I don’t drive and there aren’t many baby groups in my area to take him to and no friends or family to help me.
Just hoping there are some people that may have had a similar experience to me or that it is something he will eventually grow out of.
Hi ladies this is my first post in a board like this and I’m slightly nervous! I’m currently 33+5 days pregnant with my first baby and I’m in need of some advice. I’ve recently finished work for maternity just over 1wk ago. Since finishing these last few days I’ve found myself feeling very anxious and worried about how I’ll cope with the new baby and if I’ll bond with them. I’m a health professional working with children so I’ve a lot of experience in working with sick children but my fears are more about emotional attachment and my own abilities to cope. I should say that these feelings, although overwhelming and scary are nearly non existent when I’m in work or kept busy. Also once they pass I’m aware of how irrational they are. It just seems mad that I’m worrying about loving a baby and bonding before hey are even born! Is this normal? Please help, thankyou
