Dealing with a child who has frequent nightmares

Dealing with a child who has frequent nightmares

  This issue is even tougher than the issue we are having with Zia who happens to be a sensitive child, the issue is that Tazkia is having nightmares at night and she either cries for me or literally runs from her bed to mine wanting to sleep in our bed. She is scared even during the day, saying that she is scared of monsters. We’ve placed two night lights in their room, cut down

Dealing with a sensitive child

Zia has become highly sensitive now that I’m well into the final stretch of my pregnancy. At first it was little questions and comments. On Eid night my cousin innocently asked when the girls were going to sleep by her, my response was, when baby is born aunty… please (more like a plea than a comment) they didn’t say anything at that moment, but on our way home, she said to me “mommy, when baby

My pregnancy update

Hi everyone, I’ve officially hit the 28 weeks mark which means I’m now into my third trimester. I was telling my husband that this experience feels so surreal, like it hasn’t sunk in yet, but still the time has flown so quickly that I find myself starting to stress a little about what’s to come.

First Trimester Experience

First Trimester Experience

Hi everyone, If you read my previous post you know that my first trimester was brutal with nausea, exhaustion and migraines. I found that with this pregnancy, the first trimester was the worst.
