comment breaking my rejection of christianity to my parents
good points, all. However I'm not so sure that "steer away" is the accurate phrase. I didn't get the feeling that he's "done" with it, but chooses not to have it permeate his life to the level that his parents do. It's a subtle point in the grander scheme, but important. But to a more main point that you make "I'm not as into it as you guys are" (which is what seems to be the case) is a lot more palatable than "I reject it." Going to services on visiting w'ends and for major holidays doesn't seem to be a problem. Plenty of ppl that aren't "into it" do that and he'd be no different.

comment Are modern cloth diapers really cost efficient compared to disposible diapers?
+1 for the lol-factor. "Depends." no . . . we're talking babies.

+1 for doing the math and planning ahead. Spreadsheets are great for more than just quarterly projections and TPS Reports.

comment How to help a child not to worry about sleeping
+$0.02 . . . when i get these "what if i can't sleep" what if questions, i always pop the other side on them. "what if you CAN sleep? Then what? Then you'll sleep and wake up like normal. My kids always respond like "huh... i never thought of that" and then suddenly the positive outcome is an option and a goal.

comment How quickly do I need to change my newborn with a dirty diaper?
It depends on the diaper. With an infant in a diaper that says "10-14 lbs", you can go quite a while before the diaper accumulates 10-14 lbs of debris.

To further Matt's explanation, diminished is also a musical term but less common than major/minor. I'll hang in chat if you guys have more specific questions.

comment How much of an effect does parenting style have on a child?
I clarified my post. There are obviously a multitude of factors that determine personality, some of which were named by Péter.

comment Handling a toddler at a hotel/hostel
@Ziv i know i'm tardy with this reply, but the theme of my response is basically saying that "It's family. They won't mind." And if there are the couple of people in the family that DO mind, they simply won't help but I doubt they'll complain. It's really not that hard, it seems you're overconcerned about encroaching other peoples good times. Guess what... if they're like most families, they won't care and they'd rather have you there and put up with a bit of baby noise than not have you there. Go. Just be aware and in charge of your kid.

Not an answer but an alt: If you happen to have 2 computers < oohh 4-5 yrs old, get Terraria. They will absolutely have to collab to survive and excel. My kids, 6,8,10 learned a whole knew level of playing together by playing this game... in doses, of course.
