Parenting Questions - Preschoolers

From messy bedrooms to lunch ideas, tips for dealing with preschool kids.

Bedtime Hassles
I would like bedtime to be relaxing but often it is the most stressful part of the day. Any tips?

Fears in Preschool Aged Children
My son will be 4 this month, in the past 3 months he developed a fear of being alone. At bedtime he is not afraid of monsters, instead he says he is afraid that I am not there.

Holding a Crayon
How do kids best hold crayons? Are the jumbo ones better than regular sized?

Lunch Ideas
Does anyone have any good ideas/recipes that are quick and easy for lunch? It's just my 19 month old, 6 year old, and myself. I rack my brain everyday to come up something good, and at least semi-nutritious.

Messy Rooms
Ok, I need some ideas on how to get my kids to keep their bedrooms clean.

Sleep Disorders
I have a 3 year old grandson who was premature. The problem is that when they finally get him in bed and he goes to sleep he will sleep for about 2-3 hours and then he is up in the middle of the night for another 2-3 hours and then sometimes he will go back to sleep and sometimes not.

Writing Their Name
I was wondering if anyone else here has a child in preschool and has noticed cognitive issues. The teacher asks a question and the child asnwers something completely different or has difficulty writing their own name.
