comment Should we cut our infant's hair?
FYI: We faced the opposite issue - our daughter had very fine hair and we were told if we shave it, it will grow back thicker. Lots of old wives' tales flying back and forth. In the end, we let it be and it naturally got thicker.

comment Should adults pay rent if they live in their parents' home?
Paying board, doing chores and helping with the running of a household is (IMHO) part of growing up and part of a child's education. You are not doing them any favours by mollycoddling them into their twenties (thirties, forties - when does it stop?).

comment At what age should I explain to my kids that we don't believe in God?
Our children are being raised as Muslims in a historically Christian country (Australia). Children start getting bombarded with Christmas (religious and santa) from the age of 4. It becomes an issue quite early on. I agree that atheism should be framed as a belief system in any such discussions if only to make it easier to explain that different people believe different things.

comment Why is my child always tired?
@Doug - Not really possible to do the earlier bed time - we both work fulltime. It's not a bad idea to try and get a bit more sleep into him, though.

comment When do kids start learning fractions in school?
@euroman - manipulating fractions is pretty much mandatory in algebra. Plus there are many real-world cases where fractions are just easier (unless you have a calculator on hand).

comment How can I make learning English fun for a 14 year old?
@ChristineGordon - IMHO, less so. Audio books tend to be read at the rate of a native speaker. When learning a language, it is handy to be able to stop and examine each word, possible out of order. If you don't understand a sentence, you can examine each word and guess the ones you don't know given the greater context. This is something you can not really do with an audio book.
