comment How did you maintain good contact when your child was far away?
So I reckon my final paragraph, plus all of Torben's excellent answer, will help you out. Make sure you let him feel comfortable calling you for anything, at any time. If you can set up a regular slot, then do that, but always be there.

comment For a long flight, would freezing breast milk simplify transporting it?
Yeah - happened in various countries in Europe and the US. I agree it is utterly moronic.

many airlines and airports now allow flying with baby food products including milk, but may ask you to prove it is real by tasting it

comment My 12 year old has been blowing off homework, and now is writing on his clothes! Is this normal?
I really like the second half of your answer, but my experience of having the things I loved withheld until I did the other things had an opposite effect on me as that you describe. It motivated me to prove I could get them back, and I did. I really appreciated that from my parents - although at the time I was a bit stroppy because I was a teenager :-)

comment What's a good choice for a baby's first sign in sign language?
We found more and milk were the two that were understood fastest, and were most useful to us prior to the kids being able to speak.

comment How structured does a child's life need to be?
Similarly, we are very unstructured, but with a range of consistent rules, so we can go anywhere at short notice eg camping with the kids in another country, and it doesn't upset them at all. This has helped the two eldest be prefects and leaders at their schools, as well as happy chilled out kids.

comment How to hold my kid accountable for his actions?
revenge? I have no idea how you come up with that. No, it is a simple consequence of actions. This happens in the real world - if you don't get the essentials done, and just mess around, you will lose your job, or fail a task etc.

comment What is an ideal age duration for a permanent bonding to happen between parents and child?
I'd have to agree with Dave here. This question doesn't really make sense - the more time the better, but there is no minimum or a specific threshold below which things will not work. VTC as opinion-based.
