Not reading, but since you're a several-thousand-rep user on SO/SU, you might find this question quite relevant to your interests. :)

comment What would be a good kit for cardboard construction projects for a pre-teen?
Brads are particularly cool because then she can make joints that can move, like a waving arm or some such. I used to make hand fans out of cardstock and brads when I was younger. They wore out fast, though.

comment How can I make my preschool child brush his teeth, and similar mandatory tasks?
But, @DanBeale, cinnamon and not mint is the natural antibacterial. I understand not using bubblegum flavor, but cinnamon or plain should be okay.

comment What consequences are appropriate for pre-teens?
I'd like to note that the trick question only works if the child feels like they've messed up and so feel guilty for it. One with more, shall we say, chutzpah might simply brush off the question. Be wary of this trick being transparent as the get older.

comment In what ways can you help a child develop self-control and delayed or deferred gratification?
Ross, my larger point was that her ability to develop delayed gratification aside, her parents setting good examples for her are more likely to keep her from developing debt or dropping out of college. The OP and his partner/significant other being, demonstrating, and rewarding her ability to be patient will, in my humble opinion, give their daughter the skills and values she will need to be successful. Basically, I was trying to tell the OP to have a little faith. :)

comment What are some ways to encourage a gifted toddler's development?
Fair enough, @Martha, but in the poster's defense, he's asking that, assuming the child is, in fact gifted, what can they do to encourage this.
