I'm new here and looking for adivce. I have a 16 (almost 17) yr old DS, 6 yr old DS, 3 yr old DD and 17 month old DD. And we don't think we're done! I'm a general surgeon, while DH is a Cardio-Thoracis surgeon. We live in GA.
I could really use your advice! For anyone with teens and LOs, do your LO miss your teen while there at school? Mine really miss their older brother and will walk around the house calling him. I breaks my heart. Especially, b/c he goes to school and has baseball M-F and Sat. Is there anyway I could make the wait easier on them? I've never needed to make him spend time with them b/c he's done it on his own usually. But not so much lately, should I 'make' (more like heavily recommend) that he spend extra time with them on the weekends. I would feel bad about this b/c the weekends the only time he can take a breather and get schoolwork, etc done, but i also want the LO to not miss him so terribly!
Wow that is a hard one. I have my nephew everyother weekend and when my DS has baseball Friday evenings and Saturdays I usually start projects with him or have him make DS a card or picture or something to share between the 2. My nephew likes doing it and it gives them a few minutes together to look over it and they both feel good.
