comment How can I teach my child about Christianity?
"I would like to teach my child about my religion" = at that point, it's really just a personal decision you'll have to make on your own.

comment Credibly backing out of a condition for a reward
You know he is capable of 3-4 greens, so rather than 'backing out' maybe re-evaluate the requirement. Tell him for a few weeks you'll make it a bit easier at 3 greens a week. Then you can try 4.

comment Why should children be rewarded for good behaviour?
Humans, like most animals, react better to positive reinforcement rather than negative reinforcement.

Yes, it could be a development issue OR it could be tha they are in no hurry to talk. Speak with a pediatric speech pathologist and they can help.

comment What is a reasonable amount of time to wait before family visits your new baby?
I think it all depends on how much everyone likes each other. I couldn't blame any of our parents for wanting to see our kids the day they were born.

It's common. Is it reasonable? That depends.

comment Receiving a new visitor who has autism
I'd find it very welcoming. "Hi, welcome to our family! Is there anything we can to accommodate your kids and make them feel welcome?" No need to even bring up the autism directly.

autism is a gigantic spectrum. I would ask this question of your brother and his girlfriend.

This might get closed as there isn't really a 'best' way to answer this, but it's a fun question.

So you think it's a medical condition, but you've only seen one doctor? I'd suggest seeing a few more doctors.

comment Are “glow in the dark” bedsheet safe
I don't know where in the world you live, but at least in the US, unless it's 50 years old, it shouldn't be using radium. If it is using radium, then it's obviously not safe at all.

comment How do you ensure that the Internet is a helpful learning tool, rather than a crutch?
I bet parents thought the same thing when calculators became everyday devices. ;)

comment What should I look for in a new car (automobile)?
That certainly makes sense: more properly installed seats = safer. It is hard to install a seat with a seatbelt in certain cars.

comment What should I look for in a new car (automobile)?
@balancedmama are you aware of any studies that show LATCH is safer? It's been a few years since we've had to deal with car seats (so nice to be out of that phase) but back when we were researching, all the data we found showed that LATCH is no safer/worse than a proper seatbelt installation. My understanding of LATCH was that it makes installing the seat easier, not necessarily any safer. Granted, making it easier to install certainly makes it safer than an improper seatbelt installation (which is, sadly, common).

Thanks. All good suggestions. Especially the 'chunking' of tasks.
