I have three children aged 6 months, 2 and 10. I live on my own part of the week, I don't work any more and have to budget all the household costs/pay the bills with my partners money. I have only lived in my own home for 3 years, relying on my mum for help and support. she now has Parkinson's and I find she now often adds to my stress and panic. I feel that I just don't no what to do half the time and this scares me. I have had some advice from time to talk. this has now stopped I was wondering if I should give antidepressants ago?
Does anyone have advice on getting a 2 year old to go to sleep when told? when they know and ten year old is coming to bed in the same room later the 2 year old has started seeing bed time as play time. Should I be worried that a 6 month old is not sitting up very
well?

sorry for your situation. it is not easy with 3 young kids and ill mother.
does your dp help you?
6 months is ok, wait more if he sits properly, don't worry.
for the 2 year old, there were tv programs of Jo Frost how to make them go to bed.
you may benefit from ads, but you need to speak to yr gp.
wishing you good luck. flowers
