Kids in the house

Tyler and I use to watch this show called Home and Family for 2 hours every afternoon when he was about 9-11.
I loved it, and he was just a really good sport about it. Then it left TV.

Suddenly a few months ago I realized all these years later it was back on the Hallmark channel.
It's better now because I can DVR it, and then just speed through till I get to the parts I like.

That is what I was doing Saturday night when I found one of their guests talking about this interesting website.
I'm sure there are lots of good parenting websites out there but this is the only one that is all videos....
there are over 8,000 of them! So you can punch in any topic concerning children or family life,
and up will pop several very short videos on the subject.


For example one of my DILs recently said she was fearful of her baby choking on spit up while sleeping on it's back. 
I didn't know what to tell her because back in the day we had our babies sleep on their tummies. 
That isn't recommended any longer, so I understand her concern. I found this little video  
that explains how until a baby is a year old, 
they have an over active gag reflex that prevents them from choking. 
We didn't know this back in the 70s and 80s....thus the tummy sleeping.

The videos get right to the point...no introductions, just answering your question.

I like that each video is very short but up to date info by leading doctors and consultants,
and specialists, and parents who have been there done that. 
And not only that, but you can link up with other parents on this website with the same concerns. 
Not sure how to do that, but it's all on there.

Take a look around on kidsinthehouse.com
