comment How can a parent encourage their child to talk more about what they did at school?
Something that worked wonders for us, was to "play school" with our kids. During roleplay, they can be teacher and we'll be the kids... you learn a lot about how the teacher interacts with the class, and how the kids interact with eachother. Or sometimes she'll be the student, or her dolls are ...

comment My 3-year-old skips one of the numbers
A song/rhyme/game is an excellent way to go about it. Keep it playful, don't go "practicing". Draw the numbers for her to color, cut them out together, glue stuff on it (cotton balls, glitter, paper snips, dry pasta, ...) and hang the numbers on the wall. Don't push her - there is no rush...

comment My 2 year old is a bully!
A good stepping stone to "share" is "trade". You can play with my toy, but can I play with yours? Trades can be a bit uneven, and evolve into "trade without getting anything back right at that moment".

comment How to protect my children from cyber-bullying
Are we really still dispensing the "don't talk to strangers" advice? Most kidnappings happen by known people, and the negative effects on self confidence may outweigh the "not talking to someone will make them not kidnap you" chance.

comment Is it a good approach to have a policy of apologizing for yelling at a kid?
"Children are human" Exactly. If you wouldn't do it to a fellow adult, you probably should not do it to a child. Same goes for eg. spanking.

comment How can I keep my newborn baby warm during nappy change?
About the wipe warmer: our baby wipes are reusable (just as our diapers are). They are pieces of cloth, you use a little water to get them wet. Using warm water is indeed a great difference in comfort, both for parent and baby.

comment How to get a child to stop pretending to choke on foods he doesn't want to eat?
Please have a trained person explain the Heimlich before trying it on people yourself - you're likely to break ribs or worse, and usually there are things you should try before resorting to a Heimlich maneuver - it is a last resort, when the other option is death by suffocation. It is really not meant as a plaything.

comment Are cloth diapers really more environmentally minded than disposables?
+1, but can someone summarise this summary of the summary?
