comment What studies exist regarding computer usage and computer game playing that support limiting access?
@Benjol, good point about the intent of commercials. I suspect that influencing someone to commit violence is a bit different though, also it is not the explicit intent of the violent media makers for the consumers to commit violence.

comment What are some resources to help in learning sign language?
I thought the milk sign looked up milking a cow! Although many of signs are strange so I suppose I shouldn't ever read too much into them. The signs my son picked up did not have any real coherence to me (besides milk), so I don't think it is a bad idea to introduce more signs (you wouldn't use less words because your baby won't be able to say them).

comment How can I prevent my 8-year-old from spending time with his bad friend?
This perspective is totally consistent with an abundance of criminological theory. A good place to start would be with the work of this guy, but if you take my word for it there is an incredible amount of research demonstrating your belief.
