comment How to handle a fussy baby?
+1 for the Moby wrap which also includes specific instructions on how to wear twins so Zeina could, conceivably, wear both boys simultaneously! Both my kids did well in our Moby. Some kids don't like it so much and you might find that to be the case with your other twin, but it would probably help this one feel more secure and you less restricted!

comment My 13 year old son has a friend whom he brushes off but yet my 11 year old son really likes
+1 for "He's not a toy that he can refuse to let his younger brother borrow." Kids--especially preteens--need to be reminded sometimes that their friends are people, too, and not possessions.

comment Helping a child independently make logical connections
+1 for this could be how his brain works. I used to teach beside a reading teacher at my high school who worked with kids who were well below grade level in their reading skills. She explained to me that one of the big reasons motivating the push towards teaching "sight words" in the younger grades is because there is a small proportion of the population who simply does not "get" something like phonics but excels at simply memorizing words. Also +1 for all your other fabulous suggestions :-D

comment Should I force activities on my child?
+1 for "Does your child object to learning it from you". I taught swim lessons for YEARS, but my son absolutely would NOT let me teach him the basics of swimming. He wanted me to protect him in the water, not make him learn how to kick and move his arms. Now that he has the basics down, he's much more inclined to let me help him with the nuances and more advanced skills, but I still let him lead and when he's clearly done with me I let it go.

comment Teens concerned about impregnation through clothes
+1 just for using the phrase "semen to accidentally quantum-teleport to their destination". I will laugh about that for the rest of the evening.
