comment Is watching a moving fan equally harmful to an infant's mental development as is a TV?
As far as I understand one big issue with TV is the fast switching between camera angles - apparently that is part of the overload. In actual day to day life your child only has one angle, his eyes. If I find the backup data from the source where I got this info I'll expand to a full answer when I have time (or someone else can use this as a tip and go answer).

comment Getting paid for babysitting
International Nanny Association Salary and Benefits Survey from 2009-2012; care.com's list of Seattle nannies including the pay they plan to charge per hour; 4nannytaxes.com's DC-area nanny salary survey (disparity between employers and employees is important here); these are the kind of resources I recommend for doing some basic salary data before talking to your boss. Parenting.SE can't really help you get what you need.

comment Getting paid for babysitting
Unfortunately what's reasonable varies wildly depending on your location within the US. For example in big cities such as DC, New York, and San Francisco in the nice parts of town it is not uncommon to get paid $12-15/hour for one child, while in lower income parts of the country that would be considered absurd. Pay also depends on your education level (someone with a masters in ECE commands more than a high school grad) , years of experience, and responsibility.

comment At what age can children understand and respond well to discipline?
+1 for the prosocial behavior link. I know the study you're referencing about sympathizing with punishing evildoers, but a link would be great.
