comment How do you control the quantity of sweets and junk food a pre-teen eats?
@bobobobo: I think, for sweets frequency matters as well, as the sugar attacks the teeth and the more often the teeth are exposed to it, the more they suffer.

comment How do I figure out why my child no longer likes preschool?
very good advice! The quality time is important - it is often difficult to concentrate on the activity with the child, but it is absolutely worth it. We made similar experience with our 4 year old son. And it happens really fast that in such a busy life you get stuck in a "who-wants-to-take-care-of-our-child-next"-mentality and spend less time with the child as possible. It is very convenient to leave the child with the grandparents, but it also is important to spend time together as 1parent+child and as a family. The positive experience for dinner also sounds like a great idea!!

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.
