comment What is a fair way to punish a sibling who unintentionally erases another's Saved Game?
Of course it is just a game! No one is hurt. And it's an accident. Punishment would not be appropriate. Chris has the right approach - a bit of chat, get the other child to apologise and move on!

comment Writing from the bottom up
Calvin - I head up a technology division in a multinational company, and have done the same for global consultancies. And I have to tell you your viewpoint is at odds with...pretty much everyone. Happy to chat about it in Parenting Chat but focusing on technology at the expense of core skills will make you much less employable. Technology is important, but only as enabler - supporting skills you already have. I certainly would not employ someone who had illegible handwriting, unless there was an extraordinary reason to do so.

comment The toddler isn't bothered with the bland food. Should I be bothered?
My first line is almost rhetorical, and leads on to the rest of my answer. And while I know olfaction develops, all papers agree that at first the only responses appear to be positive towards sweet, and negative towards bitter. The rest develops over time.
