comment Are similar-sounding names a good choice for siblings?
Also, if you as a parent are, say, shouting across the house for one of your children, rhyming or similar sounding names can backfire; both might come out of confusion, but neither might come because...they thought it was the other.

comment Should we give our infant baby food to avoid feeding at night?
Could you edit this to include quotes supporting your commentary from your sources? Just a few sentences copied for relevance and posterity, in case those sites change URLs or alter their pages. :D

comment In what ways can you help a child develop self-control and delayed or deferred gratification?
I know you're concerned, but bear in mind that she's 5-6 years old. She has plenty of time to learn and mature before she spends herself into debt or drops out of college. Continue to set a good example, and trust your daughter to want to be like the good people who raised her. She will learn, just give her time. :)

comment What television shows could I show my toddlers to encourage multilingual learning?
There's also Muzzy, for which I saw ads constantly as a child. It's a Beeb product, as well.

comment 8yo has crazy mood swings and gets mad over nothing
Before we answer this, I'd like to ask a few follow-up questions: When your sister isn't sobbing, when she's happy, does she...Feel very happy or act silly in a way that's unusual? Have a very short temper? Talk really fast about a lot of different things? Have trouble sleeping but not feel tired? Have trouble staying focused? -- When she's upset, does she...Complain about pain a lot, like stomachaches and headaches? Sleep too little or too much? Eat too little or too much? Have little energy and no interest in fun activities? We need more information about her normal/abnormal self to answer.

Also, Babycenter has a thread with numerous other parents expressing concern about the same thing. It seems to be a sign that she'll have a growth spurt soon.

comment Is it normal for a toddler belly to last into the pre-school years?
Agreed! And, to add my two cents, both my brother and I were heavier-set kids growing up. Small Sibling, especially, was "softer" for most of his childhood. When he turned 15, he grew a foot in a summer and gained a bunch of muscle tone. shrug OP, just be sure you teach your daughter good eating and exercise habits and the rest will work itself out.

I mean, it's possible it's just baby weight, too, right? My brother didn't lose his belly until he was a teenager, and my body mass altered when I was a teenager. I was "soft" throughout my childhood, and I was reasonably active.
