comment Toddler is a real glutton with sweets
I said sweets but really it is anything snack-like that they really like, such as salami slices, pistacchios, tortilla chips, 80% chocolate chunks, ... Yesterday we were at a birthday party with lots of cookies and it prompted the question :)

comment Toddler is a real glutton with sweets
Actually, I read a similar study where children of the same age were presented with the "cookie now vs two cookies later" choice (while alone in a room) and the ones who could wait did better academically at a later age... So there are gradations within age groups.

comment Why does my toddler refuse to let me sing to her
+1, same here! I think it's just a phase, and they don't always complain about my singing.

+jpatokal Yup: scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&q=children+diet+behavior Nice abstract: psycnet.apa.org/journals/ccp/48/6/760 "Amount of sugar products consumed, ratio of sugar products to nutritional foods, and ratio of carbohydrates to protein were all significantly associated with amounts of destructive-aggressive and restless behaviors observed during free play."

comment Please help with defiant, stubborn and abusive 5yr old
@jpatokal It's complicated. Omega-3 and Omega-6 are essential fatty acids, meaning the body can't create them itself. They have to be gotten from diet in a proper balance, most people get way too much O-6. They are also fragile and when eaten in excess cause stress on the body (in various ways). These prisoners had their O6-O3 balance restored, they shouldn't be supplementing beyond that. When avoiding high O-6/O-3 oils, the proper balance and amount can be achieved easily through diet - simply eat fatty fish twice a week and normal protein otherwise.
