comment What cartoons teach basic math?
As far as I know cartoons don't really work on the teaching department and are more for entertainment. Sure they might learn a little bit but the time would have been much better spent training mathematics together then in front of a tv.

comment What are some strategies for raising a bilingual child?
I read somewhere that knowing multiple language is something humans are basically equipped for. It should be 'relatively' easy to learn just two languages.

Stop when they're getting scared. Always stay around and watch the movie together.

comment At what age should you start giving your children pocket money?
This seems like a good idear. We gave our kid some pocket change to put and take out of a little plastic money container. That really helped him get fine motor controls (1,5 years old)

comment How do you decide when it is time to change schools?
I guess you're better off trying to fit him into the school then moving him. This depends on the definition of a bad fit though. Open another question too see if you can get some advice on having him fit into the schoo.

Change the rewards to some attention, a hug some laughing playing when they get up and drop the money.

comment How do I get my 6-month-old to sleep better at night?
If he wakes up at night let him sleep less/not at all during the daytime. Send him to bed earlier. Kids should sleep for about 5 hours, have some food and sleep for another 5 hours. Sleeping like this while very hard isn't unnatural.

comment How do you stop a child from using bad language and profanity?
Explain what is bad about the swear words. Give them other words to express their feeling and see why they are asking for attention.

comment What are some suggestions for punishing a child?
Step 0 explain what you see/hear they are doing, what the effects are on you/the room/someone else and explain why that is bad. Then simply ask them to stop. Don't start with warnings if they don't even know it is a bad thing to say.
