comment Are same-gender classrooms better for girls, or mixed-gender classrooms better for boys?
And "ratio"? Wouldn't "mixed vs same-gender education" be a better title? It's not like 35% girls is gonna make a difference vs 45% girls. :)

comment Are same-gender classrooms better for girls, or mixed-gender classrooms better for boys?
Boys in same-sex settings do not feel the need for aggressive and showy behavior to impress girls, and girls do not feel the need to behave cute and stupid. That's why in some cases both genders do better. Single-gender classes is a bad idea for other reasons though, it's better to have one class and sometimes split it. However I can't find the research that is the source for these statements, so it's not an answer but a comment.

comment How can I stop my toddler from playing with electrical outlets and plugs?
@torbeng: I didn't even look at the outlets in our apartment when we rented it. Then it turned out they didn't use safe outlets. Apparently that's not required in Poland. Crazy stuff. I noticed before my daughter started crawling though, so it's fine now. :)

I think that's hard with many plug types. In US you need covers: google.com/…

comment How old is old enough for a child to have their ears pierced?
+1 I think you if anything sound too "light". :) Let's repeat it: Piercing a childs ears without their consent is a violation of their rights. I'm surprised at the question, even. :)

comment When do kids usually stop believing in Santa Claus?
A trusted source told her the Tooth Fairy exists, but never claimed the same about Santa. As a result she believes in the Tooth Fairy but not Santa. That's perfectly logical, and you would do the same. Lack of logic only comes into it if they continue to believe something despite being proved wrong. And kids don't do that. Only adults do. :)

3-7 seconds is not holding your breath. That almost sounds like the opposite: Hyperventilating.

comment Does anyone recognize where the phrase “Dinosaur on the button” comes from?
According to google, it comes from you! :) He may in fact have made it up himself, or it's a distortion of something he heard, so it's hard to find because it wasn't a dinosaur or a button.

comment Is an expensive stroller worth it?
Oh, our daughter didn't outgrow ours before she could sit either. But she outgrew it way to early anyway. We were given another bigger pram that we used throughout the winter. It may be that the Teutonia has a big enough bassinet, but that seems to be unusual in these systems.

comment Is an expensive stroller worth it?
That was our list too. But as you see from my answer, we figured out that #1 and #2 was a mistake. It's better to have separate prams and strollers, IMO. The rest of the list is good though.
