Unusual Toilet Habit ??

Mon 12 Jan 2015 7:58pm

Hi there, my son has just turned 4 and I am working really hard to get him toilet trained before he starts school in August, at first I was letting him go at his own pace but I have just been informed if the classroom assistant isn't full time i.e not available then I would have to go and change him if he has an accident which could be difficult considering I work over the other side of the city.

I'm depressed

Fri 26 Dec 2014 11:12pm

im in the last month of maternity leave, 10mth old boy and 5year old is ASD.

Meant to go back to retail shop, but my employer expects two close shifts till 9 pm and Saturday- what do you do for childcare!?


Australian living in Canada with no real family support, husband in retail and works long hours. We need to pay the bills, but I feel like I never see him.

Can't stop crying today.

It all feels hopeless...perhaps it's the time of the year too....

The dreaded toilet training

Fri 5 Dec 2014 8:52am

My son is 5 in feb
He is verbal (although somewhat delayed)
Seems pretty bright.
All the professionals at school seem to think he is ready for toilet training and me and my wife agree.
He goes to a special school 3 days a week and they are fully equipped to deal with toilet training.
He goes to a main stream school 2 days a week and whilst they are not so well equiped he has a 1 to 1 with him all the time and she is fully on board with supporting our toilet training at school.

Peoples opinion on fit for work questionaire

Fri 28 Nov 2014 1:54pm

Hi Guys

So today I recieved a health and disability, fit for work questionaire.  For varying reason it highly upset me, but I won't go into that.  I just wanted to get peoples opinions on the Tgline attached to every page.

The tagline was:

" healthy people power great organisation"

Continuing vaccinations after diagnosis

Wed 26 Nov 2014 12:57pm

I'll be honest. I dont know what to believe about the vaccine and autism links. I could be reading and researching for weeks and just never be closer to the truth or even an informed opinion.

Melatonin not working anymore

Wed 26 Nov 2014 11:11am

Hi it's been a while since I posted on here. My 4 year old son has been on 2 mg melatonin for almost a year. Everything was going fine until a couple of weeks back , when it just seemed to stop working . He's started refusing to go to bed, doesn't want me to leave him when he goes, gets out of bed,... All the problems we had before he started taking it. He's quite a tall boy for his age, so I m not sure if his dosage needs changing.
