comment How to raise a child between agnostic parent and believer relatives?
This is a great answer. The only real trouble is what about all the people who don't respect atheists and will insist that we agree with their beliefs? For instance, Grampy who told my 4-year-old son that he would burn in hell because he doesn't go to church. (We don't visit Grampy anymore, but the damage is real and lasting.)

comment Why was this c-section necessary?
I wanted to expand on your #3 a bit. It sounds like in this case, it was not the cervical opening that was the issue, but the distance between the bones of the pelvis. In other words, the mother had "narrow hips." During pregnancy, chemical changes in the body loosen tendons that hold these bones together (which is why pregnant women are highly susceptible to injury), but if the bones won't spread far enough apart, then the baby must be delivered by c-section. There is just no other way, aside from tearing through the tendons and dislocating the bones to make room.

comment Does teaching your child sign language improve his emotional health?
It will also make you less frustrated since he'll be able to communicate sooner.

comment What do I do when the timeout method isn't working?
Is she in timeout because of hitting? And are you lengthening the timeout period for each subsequent timeout during the day?

comment Is it normal that a 2½ year old omits any “s” in the start of words?
I was just about to post this same question. My 2y3mo son has trouble with the initial s, but can make an s sound. I am reassured that he's not the only one.

comment My 1yr 3month old daughter crying every night
Does she wake up at about the same time every night? Did this start recently? (And my sympathies.)

comment Do babies *have* to be weaned from breast milk or infant formula on purpose?
Both of my children decided they didn't want breastmilk anymore. I guess they liked bananas better.

Yes! Teaching empathy is critical for understanding the necessity of a moral code.
