So we had to go home and get the car so we weren't late - My daughter is starting at secondary sch...

Recommendations for a child psychiatrist specialising in separation panic disorder

Does anyone know of a great child psychiatrist that could help my 7 year daughter who is really suffering from separation anxiety? We have been trying to find ways to help her over the past 3 years but now because of the lockdown, all the symptoms are very much amplified. Thank you"

Hotel in New York

I am taking my dd to NY soon and I wondered if anyone had any hotel suggestions? Thinking midtown and 4 star if possible. It is a minefield out there in terms of hotels and would welcome suggestions rather than randomly picking one out on the internet! Thanks!!

Re: 5 year old daughter still not settled into school

Thank you bunny pigeon, I was going to arrange a appointment with our GP next week as she complains of tummy ache on a frequent basis, has a small red patch by her mouth which she itches and picks her fingers until they bleed but am pretty sure it's all related. But will speak to her about school an...

Re: underarm hair in a 7 year old girl

I think she is perfect. I am just very aware of children nowadays who seem to be a lot more vocal and ...
