comment Why do kids always do things which we tell them NOT to do?
+1 very good point. Our son also has an especially strong desire to be independent and to take his own decision. BTW thanks for the compliment :-)

comment Cleaning bathtub toys that squirt water
we have the same problem with the "bath ducks". Vinegar sounds good at first. However, I wonder if the acid could attack the polymer and maybe set free a reaction product. Furthermore, acid is not child-safe IMHO and as you can not be sure to squeeze out all the water you'll have the same problem with the "detergent".

comment Do pregnancy due dates accurately measure maturity (and over maturity)?
I don't have scientific data, so I'll just add it as a comment: AFAIK, 50% of the children are born in the time interval +/- 2 weeks around the calculated date of birth. (That's what the gynaecologist and the midwives told us)

comment My 4.5yr-old girl is afraid of death. What should I do?
@xpanta - if it was your instantaneous reaction, it might have been a bit too "hard". The canary might be a good example to explain, as he is not there anymore since his "accident".

comment How to remove brown stains from colored underwear?
thank you - we always dry the laundry on the balcony, so it should be exposed to the sunlight anyway, but I think that's not sufficient for our large stains.

comment At what age can/should a child be able to clean themselves after bowel movements?
thanks, Modan! We don't want to count the chickens before they are hatched, but at least we have 9 days in series without any accident - However, he nearly never poo'ed in the kindergarten since then, so we'll see what happens if that should become necessary (like today where he did not poo in the morning at home)... (fingers crossed) :-)
