comment what to do when the father makes poor personal choices (not necessarily a bad father)
Alcoholism is a disease, not an escape mechanism.

Nice answer. I used to love sleeping in other places and other positions: upside down on the bed, under the table, ....

comment Advice on Dealing with Other People's Children Taking Items From My One Year Old
The book says that when Suzy is finished with the toy, then she should share it, but not until that point. Let her keep the toy for hours on end. Johnny can find another toy. Also, it is not okay for either Johnny or his parents to force the situation on Suzy. (Too late to chat.)

comment Advice on Dealing with Other People's Children Taking Items From My One Year Old
@anongoodnurse: The reasoning in the book I mention in my post is that if you build up the trust in the "It's okay not to share" situation, the child will become better at sharing because they will learn to understand that sharing does not have negative consequences – remember that the child cares only about being safe, including not having its toys taken away. Teaching the child that the world is full of jerks does not enhance this feeling of safety. That can wait, methinks.

Allowing a child to snatch a toy from you is not exactly sharing.

comment How do parents have sex when there's a toddler in the house?
This does sound risky, especially if it is a big bath. How can you be sure that he is safe? Drownings happen quickly and silently.

comment What aspects should we consider when choosing a name for our child?
Apologies. Your name doesn't looks Polish. All I can say is poor Åsa, Björn, Lars-Åke, Örjan and Kjell.

2 is quite ridiculous and Anglo-centric (especially as you are Polish). Letters such as å, ł and ö are normal letters in other alphabets.

comment Is my 14 year step daughter a bad influence on my children?
Teenagers are also worried about being embarrassed by their parents. I'd worry more about whether she is hurting someone including herself.

Sounds very cruel. They are babies after all, and babies have needs you.

By "cutting", do you mean "cutting class" or "cutting herself" or something else?

Ah. I should have guessed that it happened in a conservative country.

comment Is plane flight safe for a newborn?
Which airlines will not let you breastfeed? That sounds ridiculous and criminal. Also, any airline I've been on allow the child to ride in your lap and you don't need a seat. None of my flights have been in the US.

comment What's wrong with Dr Seuss?
@coburne: I agree, from a child's perspective. But as an adult, I prefer the first one. (Sequels are rarely better.)
