I am looking for resources other than Kumon to improve english reading and writing for my 2nd grader. We tried kumon for 6 months but all they are asking him to trace words and leaving most of work to be done at home which my kid sorta hates. Do you have private tutors for kids or largely depend on school or other resources. I am trying to build good foundation for their academics so they can do well in next grades.
Moms, please share your experiences with your children receiving early childhood diagnoses (ADHD, ASD, etc.). Considering seeking an evaluation for my toddler, but I don’t want to jump in without fully considering the ramifications of a label that may follow them around for life. Your help evaluating the positives and negatives of receiving a formal diagnosis from a professional would be much appreciated.
How much time do you actually spend with your kids on weekdays or weekends? I’m a new mom and barely see my baby 1-2 hours on weeknights and it’s all a mad dash to 8pm bedtime. Is this normal?
I found out that I’m pregnant rather unexpectedly. Still early, but I’m only 27 (married) and am wondering how this is going to affect career trajectory. We were going to have kids, just not for a bit

Have you ever had family members rent a place you own? Are there loopholes/ways to pay less taxes? I’m intending to buy a place in a country (original home) where it’s 20% taxes on your rental income and having my father (same last name) live in it and pay rent. Or who would be the right person to ask for advice - a tax professional?

Advice on child therapy….My tween started seeing a therapist for anxiety. The therapist asked to have 4 sessions alone with her before discussing the treatment plan with me. This makes me uncomfortable as I feel left in the dark not knowing what they are talking about. Is this normal? I have this (probably irrational) fear that something is going to be said that is against me or my parenting and eventually drive my child away from me.
Any advice on how to be involved without being overbearing?
