    You would be the best baby sitter ever!!! Compared to you, the kid's parents would seem so kind, I bet the kid would always listen to the parents.

    Way to go Karla! I love to hear when parents get creative in solving kid problems!

    When my daughter was really little (around 3), and leaving the light on slightly didn't work, I got some ghost-repellant spray. Yup ghost-repellant. Just a can of Glade with a contruction-paper label that said anit-ghost spray on it. I told her ghosts can't STAND the smell of roses, so every night before bed, we would spray her room (including the closet), and she fell asleep happy that the ghosts couldn't come around as long as she smelled roses.

    Re: what do you do when your child is afraid at night?

    I hate to post a real reply, but since this is such a sweet thread, here is a real answer to all your kid problems (brought to you by seven years of college and waaaaay too many student loans)

    Most child behavioral issues are issues that may be effectively dealt with by using some classical conditioning. I'll save you the real boring parts but what you need to know is that you need to be reasonable, honest and open with your kiddo, regardless of the issue. Discuss the issue, set some behavioral guidelines, goals and expectations. This is the real key. STICK TO THE PLAN! There is something called an 'extinction burst' which is a part of the change process where the issue usually gets worse just prior to getting better. Don't give up, because this is when the long term change takes place.

    A great example of this theory is when parents are training their baby to sleep in the crib at night. Often the baby will have the parent trained to run into the room and calm the kiddo. By practicing and getting the baby used to the routine, the baby will learn to adjust bedding, get comfy etc. Obviously in this example the verbal cues aren't so effective.

    Whew, what a wordy post, sorry! Now I can get back to my dumb comments in other threads.

    WE have the sleep issues more with Brian than Ali. Once we get her down, she is good for the night. Brian, on the other hand wakes up at least once a night. He was a soft lamp and a night light. It got to the point that now we have him put on a video in his room when he wakes up.

    Nathan and I have gotten much more peaceful sleep lately thanks to this little trick. He used to do the creepy stand there are stare at mommy thing every night. It would scare me every time!
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.
