revised What do you do with the cousins who, at birthday parties insist on opening the presents when they are not the guest of honor?
I made it more curteous, more general, and fixed spelling.

comment My six year old is afraid of the shower. How do I help her transition?
If there are some parts of her that feel less scary than others, such as her hands or her face, start with those. Try to talk about each body part with her separately to see how she feels about it. It may help to start her showering with a bathing suit or even shorts and a shirt. If she has sensitivities or fears about her body, this is a good time to hear what she has to say. It's also a good time to point out which areas are private-- only for her, you, and her doctor while you're there, to look at to keep her healthy.

comment When you don't think (grand)children are getting the care they need
You don't need names or addresses; you can refer the service providers who can help to your neighbor for that, anonymously if you choose. See childwelfare.gov/responding/how.cfm or call 1-800-422-4453 for details.
