There is a great difference between "recognize" and "understand". Recognizing one's shadow can happen as early as few months old, as this other answer implies. Then at later age, kids can start playing with their shadows, and other people shadows they see. However, the real question should be: "when children actually understand the concept of shadows?" and ...

It's hard to answer without having a lot of detailed knowledge of the classes that really even you probably don't have, but I doubt it would be a net negative to enroll him in a pre-school, as long as it's with some age-equivalent children. You don't say enough detail about that; is it mixed 3.5-5.5 year olds? Or is it all 3 year olds? Even if he is ...

I've asked this question about TV, but this seems a little different. According to Brain Rules For Baby: How to raise a smart and happy child from Zero to Five TV for kids under the age of 2, screen time can decrease attention span and lead to trouble focusing. I can potentially see this because of the way that content on TV is edited and paced. Lots of ...

I came across your question in doing my own research on this topic. Appararently there was 1 study done 10 years ago on mice that supported the claim that prozac could interfere with bone growth. My daughter is getting ready to turn 12 and after a recent check up was found to have not grown in the last 3 years (don't get me started on the guilt I have for ...

There's nothing to suggest that an answer to this question would be different than the answer without the religious context. Since the difference between indoctrination and education is muddled at best, and intentionally divisive at worst, I'm not going to address that terminology beyond this. Your question is really many questions, and these are the ...

What are you truly asking? I am going to say something which might sound a bit harsh, but what you seem to be asking is How can I indoctrinate my child with a post modernist world view?. You are attacking teachers for "asserting their own religious views as fact or just drawing inappropriate focus to them" and then go on with asking how to make the child in ...

Find a community of like-minded folks. With most religions, this is your church, synagogue, mosque, temple, etc. It is somewhat harder with atheism or agnosticism. The key is not necessarily practicing the religion, but much more giving your kid a way to feel connected, and know that even if classmates are all Other Religion, there are still plenty of nice ...

When I was a young teenager I started to go OCD. Every time I left my bedroom I had to check all the electrical outlets first (often more than once), and make sure for sure that the light switch was off (by flicking it on and off, usually more than once). One day I decided enough was enough, so I stopped. It was tough at first, but before long it was gone ...
