comment visual stimulation videos for infants
Small clarification: It's not easy to sue Disney. They have an army of lawyers. :)

comment Walking barefoot is bad for my child health?
The flu is a virus. A cold floor is just a cold floor. Not sure there's a strong connection between the two. At most, you may end up with cold feet.

comment Could it be ADHD?
It could be anything. Or likely a combination of things. It's never too late to get help, though.

comment First keyboard: Qwerty or Dvorak?
@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun FWIW, our oldest son writes most of his reports with OSX's built in voice recognition.

@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun I was speaking more tongue-in-cheek than anything, but that said, Siri is certainly mainstream.

Keyboards? That's so last century. Kids these days will be using gestures and voice and glasses for input.

comment Enforcing minority languages at home
I believe you're making an assumption that there's "only so much room for language" in their heads and that English will get in the way of the others. That's not the case. Child minds are gigantic sponges. A 3rd language isn't any hindrance to the other two.

comment Should parents of young children set an example of socializing by using Facebook?
This reads like a troll post. (If it's not, my apologies, but in that case I'd point out: If you want to teach your children how to socialize, stop using Facebook)

comment Why do my parents start ridiculing me in front of my friends?
There's ridicule of who you are today and then there's "embarrassing stories of when you were a kid". The intent of each is quite different. The former is just being a jerk. The latter is just being a parent.

Umm...No Child Left Behind was George Bush's mandate--not that I'm entirely sure that NCLB has anything to do with your question.

comment How to deal with a teenage daughter who refuses to dress modestly
" else can we verify what she's wearing without having our other kids spy on her" = I think that's the key. You can't. Either you need to find compromise, or assume that she'll just keep on breaking your rule. Since you were asking more for our opinion, I'd say she's being a normal 15 year old girl in this day and age in terms of what she's wearing. You may want to take that into stronger consideration and see if there is compromise to be found. You want knee length, she wants no-length. Can you (literally) meet in the middle?

comment What's the right (average) age to transition from Duplo to Lego?
If they are out of choking stage, just get some LEGOs. If they start playing with them, then you know!

comment At what age do teenagers begin to masturbate?
@Dariusz but, then again, neither is your friend Tommy's older brother's stash of magazines that we used back in the day. :) (But valid point...just be careful where you are going to seek the 'real' info online)

comment At what age do teenagers begin to masturbate?
I think it's pretty well established that puberty is a likely time to expect it.
