comment What can be done to help bright children stuck in a boring school?
Yeah, I saw you wrote that, but I think you should really write that first. As it is now it comes of as saying "well you could get a better school" when that really should be the first option. And he did say the school is bad, but most of them are. ;)

comment What can be done to help bright children stuck in a boring school?
@Carmi: The socializing in school is a destructive zero-sum game. I'm not sure it's a good thing to learn it. And studies doesn't show that home-schooled kids have any social problems. I think this answer would be better if it emphasized that the best thing to do is to GET THE KID OUT OF THAT SCHOOL. But that may not be possible. There may be no better school around that you can afford. And homeschooling is often no alternative. And then these recommendations are good.

comment How much sun is too much for a child?
Window glass blocks most of the UV light, which lessens the risk of sunburn but also means no Vitamin D is produced, so in this case it's not that valid.

comment What are the objective arguments against immunizations for infants and children?
@nuc: It has 11 upvotes because it is correct and to the point, which is helpful. It has nothing to do with "wanting to hear".

comment When can I cover my baby with a blanket in her crib?
Yeah, they are popular in France (they are called gigoteuse there), especially the thicker variants. We thought they were weird and didn't use them in the beginning, but in fact they are great. Heavier one will also delay the age when they can turn over in their sleep with a month or two, so they won't turn over on their stomach.

comment What are some milestones a child should reach before learning programming?
I think programming is rather more likely to teach your kid the things he needs than the other way around. But he'll need to be able to read/write and use a computer of course. Although there are programming style games that doesn't use text.

comment Is teeth grinding bad for my child?
I'd probably ask a dentist. Grinding teeth is bad, but grinding milk-teeth? I don't think so. I guess it's just a question about exploring the fact that she has teeth. But do I know? Nope.

revised How do you stop a child from talking back without discouraging them from asserting themselves?
Too long, and "thougths on" is not needed.

comment How can I potty train a 12 month old?
David: Oh. Well, see discouraging them lies so far outside my mindset that I can't even imagine how you would do that (no you don't need to tell me). :-) I can also not imagine how anybody actually involved with kids the last 30 years would think that would be helpful.

comment Can fraternal twins develop their own “language”?
Vocabulary is not encoded in the genes. :-)

comment Can fraternal twins develop their own “language”?
I don't think anybody claims there is "a twin language". What happens is that children that learn to speak at the same time, which twins does, will start using words that they got from each other, which means they get a vocabulary where some words are unique to them. This is what is meant, and hardly controversial that it exists. :)

comment At what age should I expect my daughter to talk?
It's worth mentioning, and none of the answers below do, that this also depends on how many languages is around the child. Children in multi-lingual environments take longer (but also has easier to learn more languages later).
