comment 3 year old has a fit when arriving at daycare
Are you confident that he's not getting bullied or treated badly? That's another potential cause for separation anxiety-- of course, the teachers aren't going to say that anything bad's going on, but you can ask him why he has such problems. He's old enough to say if someone hit him or scratched him or the like.

comment What are the biggest expenses for a new baby?
Do you have friends that could have provided for: crib, crib mattress, linens, stroller, car seats, high chair, baby carrier*, rocking chair*, breast pump*, nursing pillow*, formula*, playpen*, swing*, bouncer, toys, books, and educational material, fall jackets, winter coats, swim suits, life jacket-- almost everything on your list can be provided by friends who have had kids before and are looking to get rid of their old baby stuff. And you live in a country with socialized medicine, but no disability leave for new mothers to cover that loss of income?

comment How to approach my little brother's addiction to TV and computer?
@Roy-- this sounds like a much, much deeper problem (or set of problems) than just TV/Internet usage. At his age, I was pretty deep into both TV and Internet, but was not cutting myself. In your shoes, I would seriously consider seeking the advice of a child psychologist who specializes in adolescents, rather than us. I mean, we are awesome, but we aren't that awesome.

@Kevin-- I agree wholeheartedly. Mind if I add that as another bullet point there?

comment What should I be teaching my two year old?
@Swati-- no problem, glad to be a help. One thing more I'll add is that if you choose to send her to a preschool, the selection process can be daunting. My wife (who is also a teacher, it runs in her family) visited upwards of 15 schools before she selected this one.

made sure that the 3rd response is tongue in cheek, and added @Kith's statement about taking sides

@kalingga-- that article is more tongue-in-cheek than anything, and I've edited my answer to reflect that. It's more that they seem to argue over the littlest things, all the time, every day. But hey, it also seems to work for them, as (last time I've checked) they've been together for 15+ years and he's gotten some books out of it (amazon.com/s/…)

comment How to avoid corporal punishment?
@Kith-- a solid strategy. Our eldest is still a bit too young; he's very rough with his younger sister without meaning too. Hopefully, once he learns a bit more delicacy, we can do something like what you've got going there.

comment How can I encourage my 5-year-old to learn to swim?
How well do you swim? Could you teach him? Are you strong enough to take him into the water yourself? Could you tread water with him holding on to your neck?
