comment What is the best way to potty train a little boy?
This is an old question, but I feel compelled to mention another benefit of sit-down first: My friend couldn't figure out why his three-year-old was peeing fine, but having poop accidents. Well, he'd neglected to tell his son that boys only pee standing up. He didn't know to sit to poop. Also, if you're doing sit-downs first, then you'll be in a better position for poop surprises.

comment What are the differences between a child who was born vaginally versus via caesarean section?
@Beofett I think both terms should be included in the title if "sectio caesare" is common in Europe. Also, I want to mention that indicating that c-sections are not "normal" births is contentious for some people, and that perhaps kalingga would prefer to use "vaginal" birth, since that is more descriptive and accurate.

comment Sex play in young children
I was thinking along these lines too. I had a friend who as a 3 or 4ish year old was engaged in sex play with an older female cousin (around 7). He said that he found out later that she had been molested by her father, and that is probably where she learned those behaviors. On the other hand, I had a different friend who said that he grew up playing "sex" with siblings, cousins, and friends, it was part of mimicking adult behavior, it stopped when they got close to puberty, and it was perfectly harmless.

Also, a new bed hopefully will be seen as an exciting, special present.

comment How do I stop my 3yr old from wetting the bed at night?
We put a potty near my son's bed while he was learning to wake up and go at night. It reduced accidents pretty significantly and now he goes all the way to the bathroom if he needs to go.

comment 3 year old has a fit when arriving at daycare
My oldest son (now 4) had a hard time because he was overwhelmed by the noise and sight of so many children. Part of our "leaving routine" was to stop at the door before we went in and get prepared. I would get down on his level and say "There's a lot of children in there." He'd reply "It's a wild rumpus." Then I'd say, "Ready?" and he'd take a deep breath and reply "Ready!" (or say "not yet I need a hug first" or something) and then we'd go in. It really helped.
