comment Moving to US with a 5 year old child
Quite frankly we hadn't much luck with our relocation consultant. In order to make a good transition between old and new culture you need to know both which the consultants typically don't. They may be ok for a US to US relo but international is a different thing and the typical cookie cutter answers are not very helpful. Much better if you can find someone from the same home country a few years a ago. Could be a colleague, friend, from a cultural organization, ex-pat club etc.

comment What is a good age to start teaching a child Ancient Latin and Greek?
I'm the opposite as well: I did a full six years of Latin and it's been an utter waste of time, and in hindsight another living language would have been much, much more helpful. I currently speak two languages fluently and two more "so so". I can fully attest that having a solid foundation in latin did NOT help learning this languages any faster,

comment Child with diarrhea: what to do when you think the doctors aren't doing enough?
@anongoodnurse. Perhaps, but this doesn't seem to have worked here. In my experience ER typically think short term focusing on the immediate symptom or problem. A primary care physician can often dig deeper into the living situation, family matter, psychological factors etc. He/She can also consolidate all tests, results, hypotheses etc in a single spot and can provide the benefit of a long term relationship who knows the kid well

Do you have a regular pediatrician? ER is not a good place for dealing with this.

comment Risks and benefits of natural birth
It's difficult to find objective information on this. Here are two peer reviewed studies from the US onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jmwh.12172/full and Canada ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2742137 . I'm sure if you look long enough you find a peer reviewed study that says the opposite :-)

comment How to get my son to sleep earlier
That seems like an almost perfect sleep schedule for a 22 month old. What specifically is the problem?
