comment How to deal with a 4 year old child who doesn't like parting with his friends?
As a parent, I would not appreciate being asked if we could "all leave in 5 minutes". It's a difficult situation that's been described, but getting everybody to leave is just trying to avoid the issue. Also it won't work if you're at somebody else's house!!!

comment What are the merits of teaching a child to type correctly at the expense of time practiced with handwriting?
How old is she? I think if she's still "practicing handwriting" rather than "using handwriting" then it's too early. Once handwriting is primarily a tool for getting her work done that's a good time to introduce touch-typing.

comment Can I help settle my child and make them enjoy nappy changing
Is there a particular part of it he doesn't like? I'm wondering if he'd like some no-nappy time in between?

comment How do you prevent a toddler from waking too early?
Yep, they're good, but will rise slowly and simulate a sunrise. More for adults. I mean something like this: gro-clock

Grammatical mistake.

:-) Good point! I'll edit it. If you ever do it please use a Mario voice and let us know how it goes. It'd probably help as the tone I had in mind was not at all cross, but more "factual".

comment How to remove brown stains from colored underwear?
Using biological washing powder is good when removing "biological remnants" (e.g. poo)!

Good answer and interesting link. Is it wrong that I want to reward your answer with a vote up? ;-)
