comment What should I be teaching my two year old?
@Beofett-- definitely working on. I would not say that a kid should have mastered singing by the age of 2, nor know how to count to 100, or whatever. They might know their directions. These were the line items that they had on their evaluations/report cards for parent/teacher meetings, and they would provide us with progress on how our son was doing in these areas (and a few others that I forget).

@Beofett-- the Montessori schools in my area start at 24 months. In fact, that's one of their selling points, that and that they'll take kids who aren't potty trained.

comment What are the risks of posting baby pictures online?
-1: This post does not really answer the question, but just ignores the risks in favor of a "Let's see what happens!" approach. There are risks, and it should be up to each individual to determine whether or not they care about those risks.

comment My child is constantly hungry. How do I keep her feeling fuller?
I'm not seeing proteins in your lists of foods, just carbs (fruits, veggies, crackers, etc). It seems like you're not doing meat, or at least didn't mention it, so maybe some high-protein foods like peanut/almond butter sandwiches (also has fat, should help feeling full). Or are there proteins on the list that I missed?

@balancedmama-- If you say so. He's doing it pretty well by now, three months to his fourth birthday.

comment How do you respond to minor injuries?
@balancedmama-- I think that this is a difference in our parenting styles, and that different kids have different needs. But in general, I don't believe in comforting when life's little problems happen-- I believe that kids need to experience some hardship to be able to avoid it.
