comment Expat child refuses to learn local language
Forcing English down the kid's throat at home is unnecessary and likely counterproductive. They'll learn English astonishingly fast at school, and as the OP says, the main issue here is getting over the initial rough patch.

comment Safe ways to support slumping 1yo in bike trailer
In some countries like Australia helmets are mandatory for everybody on a bicycle, including 1-year-olds strapped to a bike trailer. (And yes, I had exactly the same problem as the OP...)

comment My infant has started walking — when should I start making her wear shoes?
YMMV, but "wear shoes when outside, take them off inside" is not a particularly hard rule to grasp or enforce, even for youjng children.

comment My infant has started walking — when should I start making her wear shoes?
Most of this is wrong. Bare feet are the best option for learning to walk. Shoes don't allow her to use her toes, meaning it's more likely she will lose her balance and hurt herself. If the floor is cold, get socks with grippy rubber pads on the bottom.

comment Keeping one year-old out of the kitchen
But a 2-year-old is also smarter than a 1-year-old, and less likely to hurt himself since he understands (to some extent) that knives are sharp, dropped glass shatters, ovens are hot, etc. Also, while our now 3-year-old would be entirely capable of scaling the gate, he also understands that a closed gate means he's not welcome in the kitchen right now, and doesn't even try to get in.
