comment At what age we should tell our toddler to not kiss everyone who asks her to?
@Raphael: The first is implied, not not by much. As a native, I'm not certain which is the correct one.

comment How should I handle a little boy who likes girls' toys?
livescience.com/22677-girls-dolls-boys-toy-trucks.html mentions two studies, different species. The second shows that newborns tend to track the "gender-appropriate" toys with their eyes more. This mentions several studies, several on humans: parentingscience.com/girl-toys-and-parenting.html I can find zero studies or pages suggesting conflicting results, but I'm at work and don't really have time to do a proper job of this.

comment How should I handle a little boy who likes girls' toys?
I almost upvoted, but the second sentence is partially wrong. boys toys and girls toys are not entirely social constructs, they are partially biological constructs newscientist.com/article/… (and many other websites, though I'm having difficulty determining which are the same studies). I make no claims that there is such a thing as a "boys toy" or that girls playing with "boy toys" is bad, merely that there is a biological correlation.

comment How to teach a child to swallow pills?
I had a hard time learning, and in high school I eventually started practicing with corn. Super soft and squishy, makes for an easier start.
