comment Is it okay to let a baby cry at bedtime?
A legitimate issue to consider is gas pain. More than a few times with my kids they would not settle down because of that.

comment Should we force our son to have hobbies?
I'm surprised no one has mentioned roleplaying games, a very geek-friendly way to socialize with peers (and to practice socialization skills in pretend.) Let him buy a RPG at a local hobby store and have him invite a couple guys from his scout troop for an afternoon.

comment How to get toddler to eat eggs?
He loves helping make scrambled eggs (he puts in the pepper and other spices, and directs me on how to crack the eggs, stir, etc.) Still, absolutely won't eat them. HOWEVER, we found at Easter that hard boiled eggs he would eat... IF he had a hand in boiling, dying, and cracking them, and ONLY IF the hardboiled eggs are dyed green on the outside. Even then, he eats only the whites.

comment How to get toddler to eat eggs?
We have been able to get him to eat the white parts from hard boiled eggs at Easter without issue. He's just a very, very picky eater, eats like a bird, and has an overwhelming amount of energy. He refuses to obey the 1st Law of Thermodynamics.

comment How to a talk to my 4 1/2 year old daughter about death?
Great answer. I used a similar approach with my 3-year old son; only problem was a family member who told him about "Going to Jesus' House", which just led to a lot of confusion. He did fine at the funeral though, and even brought a tissue to his grandmother at the podium when she started crying (entirely on his own, which was darling). The service exceeded his attention span though, so he needed to be taken to go explore.
