How do I fix a marriage after cheating??
My husband of 5 years has cheated on me. I'm heartbroken. Can I fix our marriage?? Is there hope for us?? Will things get better? Please help
Am I over reacting? Am I the one in the wrong no him
Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?
Idk what to do
My boyfriend and I have been fighting because he found some old messages that I had when we started going out, the messages are not bad the conversations where just like hi and bye kind of thing but because I told him I wasn't talking to anyone he's mad but da whole time he was still hanging out with his baby momma behind my back and he would delete all his messages to her so I wouldn't see them

What should I do?
My son is acting out in school and giving people the middle finger and running around and hitting when he is restrained and he also has speech apraxia and may have ADHD
Toddlers are the most unfiltered and authentic people who are small, dependent and forever exploring new things. Cute little small people who don’t yet have the tools to regulate their emotions and who also have the most rapid brain development in progress.
But we adults see they're trying to find a sense of this world as toddlers throwing tantrums, pushing our buttons. Being difficult to trouble us, messy, and always trying to test our limits. forever clingy and a little impolite.
I go back in time many times... When I see parents with their kids today. Reminiscing the same stage as my kids. Hated the word terrible twos even then. Wondering if they were really amazing years for me or I have forgotten the tough times. But no I don’t remember going crazy pulling my kids out of the power plugs or running after them endlessly.
Rather I remember the block towers they made. The butterflies they chased, rolling down from park small hilltops, collecting leaves of different kinds from the garden and matching them, counting the stars in the sky, running after the moon to catch it, jumping from the small sofas in our house, playing hide and seek, etc. Okay, some days might have been difficult but what worked was my being hands-on, consistent routines of play, meal times, nap times and keeping them constructively busy.
Add to myWE:
Recounting here what did I do differently to now have memories of my two awesome beings they were then. I guess being a professional who understood child development and accepting the changes that the toddler stage brings in and trying the best to make the most of them. Sharing here the understanding of the developmental milestones expected during the 2-3 years stage.
(These milestones are for 2-3-year-olds. 3-4-year-olds will be covered in the next blog post. Remember that milestones have a similar progression occurrence in most kids but the exact time might vary from child to child).
