comment How can I get my 12-month baby to sleep in her bed?
Nobody falls asleep from jumping up and down in the bed. I feel you didn't read the question properly.

comment What do I do about the fact that my child can already read, write and do math before entering Kindergarten?
-1 Do nothing is the wrong thing here. I agree that skipping ahead in classes is not necessarily a good solution although it sounds like it. But doing nothing is not the only alternative. You were lucky in having a good teacher that engaged you in a support role. Most kids who are ahead of their class doesn't have that luck, and end up either disturbing their class, or bored and hating school.

+1 Yeah, that sounds kinda like my experience (even if I didn't read until I was 5).

How would the mixup be done? They write the wrong name on the certificates? Confuse the tags? I'm unclear on what actually has been mixed up. :)

I think it's an excellent question, quite clear and not hypothetical at all.

comment What are the (dis)advantages of putting a child in a nursery or pre-school even when one parent is at home?
This is so dependent on the country. In Poland toddler day care costs 800 PLN per month, and a Nanny costs 1000 PLN. In other countries a Nanny would cost several times as much as day-care.

Socializing is not about teaching correct behavior, but about learning to play the social games.

comment What are the pros and cons of a chicken-pox party vs immunization?
No, it doesn't cause the other things, but you are more likely to get them. Also, the virus can go dormant and cause shingles later in life. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herpes_zoster

comment Should we circumcise our son?
I had a medical circumcision at ten. It hurts like bloody <deleted> <deleted> <deleted> for a week every time you pee. No cream in the world will help. Circumcising your child is child abuse, fully on par with spanking your child everytime you change his diapers for a week. Sorry for stating it that strongly, but there is no way I can state it less strongly without being inaccurate. Don't do it. Full stop.

comment How do you discuss a controversial history topic with a child?
Ah well, it might be controversial in the sense that you have people in your vicinity that has the wrong stance, yes. In that case I'd just teach my kids to think for themselves.

comment How do you transition a Suzuki-method violin student to the fiddle?
Well, that's to a large extent because it's different instruments. ;) But OK, I didn't know the tuning was different.

comment At what age is it appropriate to bring my children to an (Italian) opera?
@HedgeMage: Oh, absolutely, but the question was about taking them to the opera. And infinite loops can happen with anything. :-)

comment How do you transition a Suzuki-method violin student to the fiddle?
This may be a stupid question, but what is the difference? It's the same instrument, it should be the same techniques right? Just different songs?

comment How do you warm the milk in a-drop in liner style bottle?
We bought a Phillips Aventa bottle warmer. It's useless crap, and hard to use and never heats anything to the right temperature. I'm with HedgeMage on this.

comment How do you explain terrorist extremism to children?
"If they ask what they want, you could say something along the lines that they want us to live like them, but we don’t want to." Yes we do. But they think we don't.

comment How can I explain why it is important to make new friends?
@Barfieldmv: Not all kids are fun to play with and a couple of bad experiences can make a big difference there. @jason: So a follow-up question is why the kid in question doesn't like to meet new people. Is it just shyness or inherent introversion?

comment How do you explain “Right” and “Left” politics to a child without bias?
@Benjol: You actually need eleven dimensions. And political compass bases itself on the invalid left-right dimension, and is as such failed from the start. But thanks for trying. :-)

comment What are signs my daughter is teething?
We suspected teething at around 3 months age too, as she was whiny and tried to chew on things. We tried a cream to help soothe the gums when teething. Since this helped, we concluded that teething indeed was the problem. :-)

This site is the wrong place for medical advice. Call your kids doctor.
