comment How to handle baby waking up while sleep training
You should avoid ferberization. You should avoid any "cry it out" methods until the child is at least six months old.

comment How do I increase concentration of my 6years old daughter?
Hello! Welcome to Parenting SE. I've provided a brief answer but it might not answer your question. More information would help me. Why do you think your child has a short attention span? What does she do to make you think that?

comment How can I get my son to keep time during school time?
@AaronD - rejecting the premise is also considered harmful on the main stack overflow site, and others. Obviously feel free to ignore this. But please do be aware of the corrosive nature of that kind of post. There are many blogs on the WWW about it, and some meta discussion.

Just be aware that there's not much evidence that edicational apps have any educational value, so as long as you're doing it for fun it's probably ok in moderation.

comment Parenting with a formerly abused partner?
Hi! Just wanted to point out that parenting programmes recommend against multiday loss of privs as being ineffective. Removing a priv for 30 minutes is better. This is because of the way children perceive time. This doesn't answer your question, sorry!
