  3. here boys wear something called skins under sports shorts. I think they are compression pants? Mostly the boys wearing them are actively training/ participating in sports or on their way to sports.
  4. Ok, so I have printed out a book type timeline but still have not been able to find a source of timeline figures in my price range that are not US history based. we are doing modern times this year does anyone have any recommendations?
  5. just marking this thread so I can find it later when I have time to write.
  6. child is already seeing a psychologist. but I forgot to mention it this week when we saw psychologist.
  7. thank you everyone. I feel a little less concerned knowing that others had imaginary people in their lifes this imaginary person is not a friend, but rather a bad person who the 4 year old is constantly punishing for imaginary misdemeanors. This person has just appeared, but maybe I only just got wind of it. So hard to distinguish between the normal child stage things and trauma related things. :sad:
  8. no. just hoping it is normal and not a sign of instability
  9. I mean that the imaginary person is not necessarily used in play.
  10. Yes a made up lady and think it is really there. I cannot really go into details
  11. meeting with whole staff of Preschool in preparation for the twins going next week ( school year starts now in Aus). Meeting went very very well. each twin has successfully qualified for an aid ( for behaviour). managed to get half of the plum crop picked. now to process it all. :mellow: really really hard to do anything out of the house at the moment with Dh still in Canada and dd16 working most days. Twins have been mucking up with Dh gone and I cannot leave them for a second unsupervised ( one nearly killed some half grown chooks yesterday - deliberately)
  12. we have 2 chest ones. I cannot comment on size as we have large by Au standards but I think that is very small by US standards. the good thing about chest is that you do not loose all the cold air every time it is opened
  13. Does anyone have experience with a child ( young child) having an imaginary person? The person is not a imaginary play person. I cannot give details but would really like to hear others experience to try and work out normal / concerning thank you
  14. I am after a timeline. what I would like is one that is possibly a fold out book type with good quality images that we can print and stick on. The price range I am hoping for is under $50 Au. I do not want a timeline that focuses on USA history but rather the world. I have tried goggling but I come up with America focused timelines or complete timelines that you don't physically have to do anything to - more like a giant poster. I was thinking maybe someone on here has used something that they could recommend. over the years we have made our own timelines with brown paper and clip art/ photocopied pictures form history books ect. but they always looked terrible. thank you for your suggestions
  15. Pavlova is an Aussie /NZ thing not a British thing at all. :toetap05:
  16. When I was a child the only thing we did was swish salt water. We did this for any mouth abscess.
  17. I have had something like that a few times over my life. I think a couple of times it was an abscess, but those were painful ( when I was a child). A few years back I had something a bit like that but it wasn't so painful, more an annoyance pain. it turned out it was a little bit of popcorn shell that had slipped between my tooth and gum.
