I agree with all your points except the "identification" paragraph. I think that's a slight underestimate; my daughter was identifying animals on the page earlier than 15 months. I think identification of self is actually a later developmental stage than identification of images as representations of things. Your final paragraph is great advice.

@Joe: Agreed, fixed. Getting an outside opinion was the key point, for exactly the reason you state, but I couldn't think of the correct person to go to (in the UK you'd go to your local GP).

comment How often is it okay for a kid to become ill in kindergarten?
I think this is kind of a medical question, and thus out of scope for the site. You have concerns about your child's health, DOCTOR, not internet Q&A site. Your child may have been cuddling the other kids when they sneeze, or they may have a serious immune system issue. I personally would be reluctant to diagnose between these based on a StackExchange post.

comment My daughter is 15 and in love with a girl that is 19 what should i do?
Specifically, what are your feelings, what do you want to do, what do you want out of it? Is this about grandkids, religion, age differences, the actual girl in question, how the rest of your family will feel? There's a lot we could cover, but more information will allow us to help better.

comment Video game addiction
+1: Great edit; the idea that you won't remember the playing with fondness is a really critical idea. I personally have the other feeling; I can remember beating incredibly difficult challenges with glee, but there are so many TV shows I wish I'd never spent the time on.

comment Video game addiction
-1: My issue with this answer is that you seem to regret the time spent, but the rest of your answer is fairly positive about the outcomes. I'd appreciate a little edit to say what it is you actually regret.

comment Long Car rides with teenagers
I love this question, but think it'd be better asked on boardgames.stackexchange.com, so I'm going to ask the mods to migrate it if possible.

comment How much time is too much time playing educational computer games?
Just a question, why is Knex a significantly higher quality tool for learning creativity than Minecraft? Why is a GI Joe a better tool for storytelling than a Lego game? Why is a game considered passive amusement, when they literally don't work without active engagement?

comment 5 yr old son behaving sexually
One question here is important and no-one seems to have covered, if he sleeps in the same room, will he have seen you and his father doing this kind of stuff? It seems obvious, but kids do imitate stuff, so if his dad has done this kind of thing, he'll see it as something "grown-ups do".
