comment How to minimize diaper usage or replace it with greener alternatives
Well, most would still have diapers if they are on a plane, for example. But it is true that it works well, and is the greenest alternative. Kids get immediate feedback on their excretions, and don't get the nice "change my diaper and smile to me time", which could also help them being clean faster.

comment How does a 3-year-old learn to wear glasses?
Did I read correctly that your 3~yo girl is wearing contact lenses? How the heck did you insert these in her eyes? I can't imagine my boy accepting this invasive operation... Or did I misunderstand you?

comment What are some ways to teach a child how to spit (after brushing their teeth)?
Wow, a pea is even much more than what I use as an adult. For our 3 years old kid, it is more like "ant" sized, and we do not use kids tooth paste. As reminder: the brushing is useful, the toothpaste is just for taste, I have been told.

comment How (and when) do you teach a child patience?
With a kid that is a little older, you could go stronger than repeating the restriction, and just say "If you ask once again you'll not get the toy at all". And really do what you say, obviously.

comment Is it ok to wake up my 3yo boy for a pee?
Thanks, I am concerned with the effect of waking him at night. I don't mind him wearing night diapers again, but he minds, and I think it is uncomfortable in summer.

comment Is it ok to wake up my 3yo boy for a pee?
Ah, ok. Well, from personal preferences I'll try to not be encouraging my kid collecting things too much, but I can find another kind of reward, eg will do a big Lego airplane with him if he is dry.

In China most birth a C-section, and I think China counts as an industrialized nation.

I don't get the "stickers of the object of their attraction" part, but thanks, I'll try less water after 6:00.

comment Is it considered harmful in the longer run to frighten the child so that he behaves the way we want?
I'd say there is something wrong with frightening a child, because self-confidence is the one thing to teach them early. I don't mean to say that it is always wrong, but it is better avoided.
