Welcome to WWYD?! Wednesday, where we discuss real life parenting issues (big or small) our readers are facing and ask for YOUR comments with advice, experience, information or any helpful tips you might have. It takes a village people. Seriously. Sometimes just one voice in the village can make a difference. You could be that voice today. Can you help?

Today’s topic: preschool playground problems

Preschool Playground Problems

My reader’s son is getting some unsolicited attention from the girls at school. And girls, unfortunately I hate to break it to you, but he’s just not that into you.

Read more about it here…

“There are a few girls at my son’s preschool that really want to play with him.

After school many kids stay to play, and my son and his boy buddies typically play boy type games. Guns, chase, monsters, etc… and he has NO interest at all in playing with the girls.  

School is his only place where he gets to hang with his buddies after school without his sister and her friends. He’s around girls all of the time, and I think he likes his boy time.

These girls follow him around until he gets mad and pushes them. I tell these girls to not play with him. I tell him to walk away from them, but they continue to follow him around.  

I don’t feel I should have to make him include the girls but I feel a strong vibe I am unliked because of this. That does not bother me, but I don’t want him to get pushed to the point of getting mad at them and lashing out.  I don’t know what to do! Help!”

What would you all do?!

Today’s topic: kids and lying. Read on… WWYD Lying

I (think) we have all been there. You know that moment in your head when you are looking at your child and thinking (liar, liar pants on fire) because you KNOW they are telling a lie?

Kids and Lying

One mom wrote in with this issue of kids and lying because she is struggling with it with her son. Here is an example of one of these tall tales,

My 10-year-old son says, “Hey mom listen to this joke I made up! I listened and it is a really funny joke. Too funny for him to likely make up. So I thought about it for a few days, and finally looked it up online. Just as I thought, my son didn’t make it up. What would you do?” 

What do you all think she should do in a situation like this? Is this sort of lie harmless or should it be addressed? Would you say something to him or let it go? How do you handle it when your kids tell lies?

Today’s WWYD?! post is on boys and violent words. Please comment below with your insight/experience/advice! Boys and Violent Words

Welcome to a new series we are starting called WWYD?! {“What Would You Do?!”} where moms write in with a real life parenting dilemma or issue  no matter how big or how small it may be.

I know I for one ALWAYS turn to my friends for help when I am at a loss for what to do in a certain parenting scenario, so I thought, how awesome would it be to pose these questions to our readers and have you chime in with your advice?!

Recently we got this question from a reader, so we are starting today’s series with a question on:

Boys and Violent Words

She writes,

“My 5 year old son has begun to pick up some very unsettling language since entering kindergarten.

Most notable are DIE, KILL, SHOOT, and also the potty words poop, fart, etc…

I correct him every time and tell him we don’t say those words, but it seriously falls on deaf ears!!  I’m horrified with the thought that he says these things around his other buddies and their moms.

Is his a phase? Should I punish? How do I get it across to him that it’s NOT OK to say these violent words???”
