Usually it's best to treat tonsilities with antibiotics but I've heard of people using essential oils to relieve soreness and reduce inflammation. Boil a quart of water and add either lemon oil, lavender oil or the eucalyptus oil. Place your head over the pot with a towel covering your head, and breathe the steam. But do note that this method might not be suitable for younger kids and babies. http://www.livestrong.com/article/302862-essential-oils-swollen-tonsils/Read more
My both kids, 5.5 years old girl and 2.5 years old boy are sharing bedroom for half year already. So far they enjoy each companion very much, especially before bedtime they will play for a while. Their relationship is very close which I wish to see from the benefit of room sharing. The major drawback is whenever one of them wake up, the other will wake up at the same time due to noise/crying.Read more
At this age, they are learning alot more about themselves. They are beginning to know that they have a voice and wants to be heard. So that is why when you tell them no, they freak out and throw tantrums because they do not understand why you say no. The thing that is important is to be consistent and set the boundaries right. Both parents have to do the same so there is consistency. If you can't climb on the table, you can't climb on the table under any circumstances. They will throw tantrums initially. Sit them down and explain to them why. Stick to it. And after a few times, they will realise that ok, I can't climb on tables. It takes alot of patience, and ear plugs even :) to get through the terrible twos. But you will get through it. All the best!Read more
