comment Help! My 5 year old just won't poop on the toilet
thanks for your suggestion - I'll think over it, however IMHO for us this is not solved yet, it's just a shame that it took us so long to detect the "right" first step, but I'd say we are still at the beginning. :-( ...

concerning Encopresis our experience was, that unfortunately most doctors/teachers do not know about Encopresis... so you have to find the right doctor for that! and I absolutely agree: punishment is the wrong way.

+1 for mentioning Encopresis!! We also have a child with this problem and it took us years to find a doctor who really knows about Encopresis (all others did not know about it and did/could not tell us that it exists.... it's such a shame - so much time wasted and so much unnecessary suffering for the child!!) see here: parenting.stackexchange.com/questions/2209/…

Is the doctor who you have asked for help someone who knows about Encopresis etc.? We have had similar problems (see here: parenting.stackexchange.com/questions/2209/…) and we have met a lot of people (kindergarten teachers, pediatricians and other doctors) who were quite clueless and even did not tell us that Encopresis exists ... (I'm afraid they did not know about that themselves...). So you need to find a doctor who really understands the problem (most of them don't, unfortunately)!!!

comment Three year old with good speech, now sometimes making up own words, especially names.
I'd also see it as a good sign (our older son, now 5, is also often playing with words and seems to be quite talented when it comes to learning languages) and I'd be interested in further information.

comment Is it reasonable/common for a daycare to show TV shows during the day?
+1 I absolutely agree that this is not appropriate. (However, it could be a very comfortable way to have all kids quiet and "busy"... absolutely shocking!)

accepted Does/can it have a negative effect, if newborns/infants are exposed to background noise (TV, …) while awake or sleeping?
