Mine never call me for that kind of thing. They know that no matter what the problem is, I'm most likely to tell them to try soaking it in a hot bath!

It's true! My oldest sometimes complains to friends that I don't believe in doctors and that her skin is permanently wrinkled from my famous soaks.

OMG Dawn, my daughter would love you! Of course, she may complain but it's my professional opinion that there are very few things a hot bath, a salt water soak, clean sheets and plenty of liquids won't cure.

y'all are too funny..........but yeah, the scars from their teens do heal and it's so much fun in turn to see them deal with their own kids......overnight you suddenly become intelligent again and a source of infinite wisdom.....and you're right.......I'm just waiting for my granddaughter to enter her teens....my German grandmother believed in warm soaks too usually with a tad of vinegar or baking soda added...she had remedies for everything because she didn't believe in going to the doctor

Don't ask me why he was begging for food before. After I got him out of his high chair he dug a box of candy out of the diaper bag. Get real kid, like I'm going to give you Nerds when you refused to eat cereal, fruit, yogurt, bread...! Then he decided it would be a really fun game to pull books off the bookshelf one by one. Tell me again why I wanted another one?
Next time tell him or her that you have some delicious food but it's only for big boys and big girls and they unfortunately they CAN"T have any----depending on their age I guarantee you that they will be "DEMANDING" it.....use this technique very sparingly and when on the verge of infanticide and going to jail...my son only ate "Big Boy" peas that we grudgingly allowed him to have though it was "illegal"

Your grandmother was a very wise woman. I laughed so hard about the big boy peas, too. I thought my little Fisher was the only kid eating "illegal" foods and doing "illegal" chores!!!
