comment Enocurage or discourage playing video games to 4+ year old son
@SevenSidedDie My favourite was the one that gave a child some toys to play with, then put the TV on, and watched their behaviour. The control was not "some other distraction", but just not putting the TV on. Study's Conclusion: TV causes inattentiveness. Other potential conclusion: Kids can be distracted.

+1: This is really important. If you want your child to respect your opinion about games, they have to believe you know what you're talking about.

-1: Looking around, I see an awful lot of successful game players over the years, and a lot of conflicting studies that mirror the same ones they applied to books, radio, TV and the automobile, generally blown out of proportion by the papers.

comment How long did it take your baby to like daycare?
+100. My 2 year old is currently performing Masterpiece Theatre every morning: "We're going to nursery, yaaaay!" and then when we get to the door "No Daddy, NOOOOOO WAAAAH". One suggestion is to ask the nursery to take some pictures of her throughout a day to see her normal behaviour when you're not there as an audience.

comment How do I deal with my mother who is not supporting me, probably because of her grandchild?
@Joe There are several answers in the archive to questions of this nature. This is about a parent's relationship with their child, I think it's on the valid side of borderline.
