comment Introducing Shakespeare
There are plenty of modern movies based on classics, and not just Shaekspeare. The movie "Ten things I hate about you" is Taming of the Shrew. The musical "West Side Story" is Romeo and Juliette (with the ending changed). The film "O Brother Where Art Thou" is based on Homer's Oddesey.

@Rory Alsop: Of course they have internal motivation, the strongest there is. They're hungry.

comment How to encourage toddler to not throw food?
I think that dessert as an incentive for anything is not a good idea. I grant that it works, but it adds an exterior incentive to something that needs to come from internal motivation.

comment How do you control the quantity of sweets and junk food a pre-teen eats?
The Jesuits (I think) used to say "give me a child for the first seven years and he will be mine for life". This is true for almost any habits formed.

comment Is an expensive stroller worth it?
regarding the price/quality issue, I was told that the better quality means that the stroller will alst for more than one child. In my area, the expensive ones were 4-5 times the price of the mid-range. We're not planning on more than 4 kids, so even if we need to buy a new mid-range stroller for each one, it's still cheaper than buying the expensive one.
