comment How do you teach young kids to defend themselves?
nope; some parents try to teach their kids, but by and large, every kid watches out for themselves -- with some older kids sometimes looking out for some younger kids.

Not a bad answer; but it's not easy to always have someone around. He has around 15 cousins, and there are not enough adults to supervise when it becomes more than 4-5 kids in the same house at the same time. Hence my dillema.

@Jon Others agree with HedgeMage on this -- hence why his comment is +2.

@David non-library books run out quickly; we have boxes, but he's gone through all of them.

Interesting note about bi-lingualism. I know my son's first/second language (Urdu) quite poorly, but other relatives excel at it.

Excellent advice; STOP and NO seem to be the way to go. But how do you prevent this from back-firing -- for example, when washing his hands after going to the washroom, he says NO or STOP? Or likewise if he's say, cranky/sleepy, but refusing to sleep?

comment When should kids be allowed to walk/bike to school alone?
Your child should also know their full name, address, and phone number. Can't let them wander around without that -- most kids are smart enough around 5-6 to memorize this information.

comment How can I brush my toddlers' teeth when he won't let me?
It's pretty common. My toddler does it too. Somehow, we've convinced him to let us do it; just practice and patience, I guess.

@torbengb post it, that may well be THE answer.
