comment What are the pros and cons of school-aged adopted children taking their adoptive parents' name?
And by changing the name they might feel that you are forcing them and that you are severing their links to their earlier life. So it's not that easy.

@balancedmama: You made this comment to the poster on an answer, not on the question. You probably want to move it.

comment How can I get my strong-willed daughter to stop being so lazy when it comes to chores?
My personal experience, which does not stretch to anyone being 8 except me, is that chores become a chore when forced to do them, but that they become less of a chore when you get praised for doing them well. Hence nagging or punishing isn't likely to work, since they are a part of why it's a chore in the first place. Now, what to do about it, I don't know...

comment How can I get my 2.5 year old to sleep on his own?
Between 8pm and 9pm sounds reasonable, assuming he gets up at 6am-7am and sleeps an upwards two hours during the day. That's what our daughter does. But 2hours on that means he doesn't fall asleep until 11pm, and that's very late unless he sleeps to 9am.

comment Nightowl at 5 years old. Any way of dealing with it?
Does he has a chance for a nap during the day? If so, and he still doesn't nap, he probably gets enough sleep.

comment Is an expensive stroller worth it?
I looked more closely at a Bugaboo now when being in Sweden (they are unusual in Poland as they are so expensive) and the bassinet in that is also decently big. I agree that a good quality travel system can be a good choice, if expensive. It is still going to be as expensive (or more) as a separate good quality pram + good quality stroller, but it takes less storage space, which can be an important issue.

comment What are the key considerations when selecting a potty?
I would not also want to mention the BabyBjörn potty and potty-chair. They fulfill all the points you show above, but compared to the IKEA one it has more rounded corners, narrower bowl and a bigger seat area, probably making it much more comfortable to sit on. These things are likely not very important for most kids, but they are for mine. It is of course also more expensive, so it's not a shopping recommendation. ;-) babybjorn.com/products/bathroom

comment How do we raise our child with three languages?
This is the general advice from professionals, and it has been borne out in my personal experience as well. I don't know if there are any studies on it. The baby will have trouble in separating the languages, and this becomes much easier if you are consistent. Then the baby will understand that you speak Swedish to dad and Italian to mum. The general recommendation is for one person to use only one language, but that's impossible in your (and my) case.

comment What are some effective strategies that I can take to get my first grade child in the highest quality teacher's classroom?
This is completely different in different countries and can even differ within states, and can therefore not be answered. You'll have to ask your local administration.

comment Which skills are best learned while very young?
Hos to deal with difficult people, group work etc can easily be learnt later. As a reclusive bookish kid, I didn't really get good at this until I did my military service. :-) Kindness and sportsmanship I may benefit from being learned early. And Empathy, definitely.

comment How do we raise our child with three languages?
Just a comment. Don't speak English "when we are all together". Speak Swedish to the baby. Always. Always. Always. Make sure everyone who knows Swedish always speaks Swedish to the baby. Speak English to your wife. If you need to say something to the baby that you also want your wife to understand, say it twice. Once to the baby, once to the wife. Keep this going until the child speaks Swedish reasonably well (so 3-5 years).
