comment Should you let a toddler win?
I was going to post an answer, but this encapsulates my theory on this perfectly. Especially so with 3 children - being fair as they all have to lose sometimes is very important! +1

comment Using the sink dish cloth to wipe infants face and hands after feeding
Definitely - sink cloths carry a higher number of dangerous bacteria than most things in the house, including the toilet seat!

comment How do I teach my baby to not touch my computer?
Worked for me. The kids did try to ask for mine, but I just firmly said "No - this is my one, that is your one" and once they realised I was not going to change my mind the problem vanished.

comment What is the best way to respond if my child is picked on by other children?
This is very like our approach. My kids compete in martial arts, but know not to use this at school. There was one bully who picked on my eldest, and despite complaints the school did nothing - so I had a chat with the head teacher and said that I gave my son permission to defend himself as the school wouldn't, and while he wouldn't start anything, if the other child ended up on the ground this would be the school's problem, not my son's. The head then sorted the issue directly with the bully and his parents.

comment Do babies who watch TV start speaking late?
As DA01 says, this is not an area the internet is that useful for. Have a specialist look at your child!
