If people tell me where they are from I am happy to do some research. It is not hard to find the info you need on the internet these days, and knowing that these things exist some places is helpful to know what to look for. First step, as stated is dr.

comment How to teach a 2 year old to go on the toilet?
Sit him on the toilet to 'finish'. He is trying, obviously, he just doesn't recognize the feeling in time. Try to see if you can figure what time of day it happens and get him on the toilet preemptively. Keep in mind that this is developmentally normal and he will get it, just give him time.

comment How do I explain the difference in responsibilities and privileges between the oldest and youngest child?
@AndreasBonini I think Johann was jesting a bit. As well, along with the law you have to consider the social implications of the time.

Twins or close in age don't seem to apply to the senerio described.

comment What is the best way to have multiple monitors for more than one child?
I am not clear why you need a monitor for your two year old. Be careful that the two year old doesn't get 'addicted' to being able to get you whenever at night. By two, assuming the child is healthy, he/she should probably be able to go without it.

comment Teaching a child to navigate bullying (or perceived bullying)
Our school is actually working with the ADL in the middle school grades, so maybe I will mention to the admin that they should speak to them about the lower grades as well.
