I'm curious of the reasearch that you've done yourself and how you felt about it.

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.

comment What factors encourage collaborative play in Nintendo DS games?
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.

comment How to help a child understand why she'll move back to her old school again?
I'm really tardy to this question, but here's a factor for you to consider: The value of the consistency of facility as compared to the "better" nature of the teaching. Daycare, then Pre-K at the school, then K at the daycare, then you'll be going BACK to school at the school. That's a lot of hopping around. Were it me, under the same circumstances, I'd probably just keep the kid in the school. Because it sounds like you're trying to find what's best, as opposed to avoiding what's worse; we're talking about what's "more better" not "less bad"

comment Email and social media for pre-teens
My response doesn't necessarily have anything to do with agreeing with the law. Not enough space here to truly answer your question, but I think this situation is about the parent/kid dynamic. "The rules and the law says you can't, it's them not me" is, as you said "a lot easier" but I also think it's parentally evasive IMO--IMO. Then again, I prefer to face up to these kinds of issues, especially with my kids, because I'm usually confident that we can fix them. We both benefit from an unvarnished truth.

@Lennart Regebro I'm a little tardy with the reply but I'm glad to hear that it worked out!

I know it's been a while, but I came back to this and must say that I can't agree with this approach. It's the parent essentially hiding behind the rules and putting it off on the internet entities. IMO, your kid, your decision. No their rules don't allow it, but that just puts off the parent making a decision.

comment Giving a baby a bottle while in a car seat of a moving vehicle…should this be avoided?
ABSOLUTELY without a doubt do i concur wholeheartedly with the :15 min break. I made a post in another thread about travelling with babies/children, and the value of a :15 minute stop is . . . invaluable. You know where you're going and you know how long it's going to take. don't be in such a hurry, you don't have to make time. And if you do have to make time, you should probably try to make alt arrangements for the baby.

comment How can I address issues that concern me at daycare (and school) without creating tension with the staff?
Excellent. Truly, DQdlM should have been able to have a reasonable discussion directly with the daycare person and expect a reasonable response. More importantly, the person should have been aware of her own health issue and taken their own steps. More MORE importantly, the director should have been aware acted. And with the whole changing thing: Yes it can be difficult, but unless there are exceptions, changing daycares should always be a palatable option. If the worker is going to sulk because of this relatively trivial issue, it may lead to changing anyway.
