  • Managing expectations with a two-and-a-half-year-old who wants to go to ‘big school’ like their older sibling
  • Teaching a nine-year-old, seven-year-old and three-year-old to respect each other when being home-schooled
  • Is it possible to get a seven-month-old to wake later than 6:30am in the morning?
  • How much milk does a 10.5-month-old need a day?
  • Uncovering reasons why a seven-month-old has started waking more frequently overnight
  • Creating a healthy relationship between a two-and-a-half-year-old and their nine-month-old sibling, which currently sees the elder pushing the younger over when they’re together
