comment How do you teach a child religious views?
@DA01 The way I read it, the actual answer is in the last 2 paragraphs. The part before can be considered preamble if you will; it might not be an answer per se but the author felt it was relevant to include.

comment Should we circumcise our son?
Your tone sounds well informed. Can you add references to back up your statements? That would increase your credibility.

comment When should we allow children to experience spices in food?
+1 for the idea of being used to variety, to prevent pickiness. Makes a lot of sense.

This sounds like the way I'd like to go. It's interesting to read how early you did this. Measured by your situation, our son is more than ready for our normal cooking.

comment When to allow children to consume sugar/candy/sweets/junk?
While we don't have tons of sweets lying around, we do have a sweets drawer in the kitchen (mostly chocolate for my wife, and liquorice for me). I'd love to be a good role model and cut things down to five bites a week, but that's not happening. I know my mother forbade anything sweet for my first several years, and my first taste of sugar got me seriously hooked. That's something I want to avoid for my son, but not sure how to go about achieving that. How can I teach my toddler that sweets are okay but only in moderation - that's perhaps better in a separate question?

+1 for examples of sensible rules. I'm sure we would introduce rules along those lines, bur it's good to hear from others also.

@afrazier: that's a good and valid answer; pity to only have it as a comment!

Rather than open a discussion in the comments, I have now created a question on spices. Feel free to move your comments there if you like.
