comment How do you prepare for the “terrible twos”?
@tomjedrz actually, it is very much about teaching them how to express themselves confidently and productively. We used ASL and Meg Coates' style (in essence) with our little girl and I only remember two tantrums. Both were when she was really tired and a little ill. I also taught in a two's classroom for a couple of years and the kids with larger vocabularies and a better ability to express themselves did not typically use tantrums where-as kids with compromised communication did much more frequently.

comment Is my 7-year-old child sleeping too much?
I might even bring it up and make an appointment about this problem rather than just waiting until the next check-up. If there is something going on medically, getting a handle on it sooner rather than later is a good idea.

comment What do you do with the cousins who, at birthday parties insist on opening the presents when they are not the guest of honor?
@monsto The funny thing is, in this case it isn't even about "If it's your kid, it's the territory between your house, your rules, and the other kids family's way of doing things." These two girls don't have to let anyone else open their gifts - or play with those gifts so it isn't even really "their" way of doing things either - mom just lets her eight year old get away with throwing fits. - yes, Crikey!
