comment Introducing Shakespeare
My daughter was interested in Shakespeare but found the language too hard to read so I bought a copy of "Tales from Shakespeare", written by Charles and Mary Lamb in 1807. This makes the stories a lot easier to follow by taking out a lot of the arcane language. I didn't really work for her since she moved on to Percy Jackson before the book arrived.

comment Do false alarms on Angel Care monitor mean sleep apnea?
It is also worth noting that our daughter slept through when the alarm did occasionally go off. The new models have a split sensor so should be less prone to false alarms. For us, it was totally worth the cost difference between a normal monitor and the Angel Care.

comment Do false alarms on Angel Care monitor mean sleep apnea?
Our Pediatrician said the same thing about these products after we said we had one. One the the big benefits for us (for our new child) is that we did not feel the need to check on her every hour and actually got some sleep. That alone made it worth while. The number of false alarms was minimal (once every few weeks).

I agree with this. Taking medication is a feedback loop. If reducing the dosage makes his behaviour worse then he is not ready to go without it.
