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. :)

Yes, also true. Updated.

comment Why would a child hold his breath regularly?
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.

comment How do you ween a toddler off of breastfeeding?
What I bring back from the answers here is that each kid is different. I upvoted all, and will select one (or not) once we succeeded. :)

comment How should a stepfather respond to “You are not my Father!”?
@Hannibal: No don't "ditch the question". That may make him think that it's an issue, which it is not. Point out that even though you aren't his real dad, it doesn't matter to you, you still care about him. Therefore: admit that he is correct in that you aren't his real dad, but that it doesn't matter to you, and that you are forbidding him to [smoke, drink, whatever] because you care about him even though you aren't his real dad.

comment When is physical punishment appropriate?
Well, mine, which I just added was for "In my experience, children who are never spanked are extremely disrespectful to authority figures and their own parents". I've never been spanked, neither had any of my siblings. The type of disciplinary spankings on the behind you mention has been illegal in Sweden for 30 years, and you make that sounds like Sweden now should be in full-blown anarchy with nobody respecting each other. Various sentences referring to the waste of bovines come to mind. :-)

@Orbit: I'd give this question a +1 if you rephrased it so it doesn't assume that is is appropriate. as it is now it assumes that it is, at least sometimes.

comment How should a stepfather respond to “You are not my Father!”?
@Hannibal: No, I'm saying what I said above. You should say that you know, and he is right, you aren't his real dad, but that it doesn't matter to you, and that you are forbidding him to [smoke, drink, whatever] because you care.

comment How do you decide when it is time to change schools?
@Tony: No, age is not a relevant component of the school is a bad fit, which was a part of the question. If the school is a bad fit, switch ASAP, no matter what. Full stop. It's not disruptive because the kid doesn't want to go there. If the kid *wants to go to that school, i question of it's a bad fit.

comment How do you decide when it is time to change schools?
@Barfieldmv: The whole idea of trying to fit a kid into school is something I feel is almost offensive. School should be made to fit the kid.

comment How do you reduce feelings of guilt for leaving children for a date night ?
Guilt? It's hard for me to go away because I miss my daughter, but guilty? Your kids are missing you way less than you miss them. They have fun with the babysitter. :-)

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.
