Wise words. When one asks for advice on a forum, one will be given different views. The OP will accept the advice that she thinks applies to her situation, and reject what doesn't.

In my defence, I should point out that I was extremely careful to stress that a HEALTHY child would not starve themselves, so it's a pity that this was missed. I'm well aware that mental and physical...

I'm 59, but have been told that I could pass for mid-40s. I do dye my hair, it would be pepper-and-salt otherwise, and I've always taken good care of my skin, so I don't have too many wrinkles. It's...

Let us know how it goes. You yourself will feel a LOT better just by taking control, though, even if it takes a little while to get junior to cooperate.

Mealtimes should never be a battleground - they should be a family time when people actually talk to each other and share food as a social experience. Even if a child isn't eating, if the rest of the...

Goodness, you can't have him dictating where you buy the food from - that kid's watching WAY too much TV!! Don't keep sending him to his room, just take the food away and leave him to it. Much less...

If he likes his room, take away his favourite toys. Each time he misbehaves, toy goes. If he's good and eats a meal, toy comes back. That's why the naughty step or loss of TV privileges tends to work...

32 inch waist (in Gap, at least) is a size 14, so a 29-inch waist would be around 10-12. Some stores do odd-size waists and others do evens, it's very confusing.

Could be. I'm a bit fed up with EastEnders myself, and I'm 59! Personally, I don't think it's suitable family viewing any more, probably better for 15 years old and upwards.

The ONLY way to do it is to be firm. No healthy child ever starved to death voluntarily, when he's hungry, he'll eat.

Don't take him out to eat at the moment, it will be too stressful. For each...

Ours did. They cuddled up together on the sofa, it was very cute! Dog's gone to the great kennel in the sky now, but occasionally a couple of cats will sleep together.

Female, height 5 ft 8 inches, waist measurement 31 inches. When I was in my 20s, I had a 26-inch waist - unfortunately in those days, that wasn't slim! Apparently now I'm pretty average.

Children are interested by death, and around the age of 6 is when they start to understand that when people die, they don't come back. I think being matter-of-fact about it is the only way to go,...

Same here. I'm happy to acknowledge the New Year, and usually watch the celebrations on TV, but I don't feel the need to go out and have a big party.

I think the word for which you are so desperately searching is "inherently". Although the word "intrinsically" would have been just as good.
