comment Is it ok to disagree in front of the kids?
I respectfully disagree. My daughter, now 17, sees that we argue, discuss, and come to a resolution. When she was 8 or so, she heard us arguing, and asked if we were getting divorced. I told her we had known each other for 20 years, and friends don't always agree. (It should be clear - we've never raised a hand to each other or our daughter. And I'd never name-call.) I do acknowledge the "too much" in your first sentence and agree with that.

comment My 4.5-year-old son has no dominant hand
Worried? The boy sounds brilliant. While it might be convenient for a teacher to know which is his writing hand, he may not have one at all, and they shouldn't force it.

comment If my 4-year-old asks me “why”, what kind of “why” does he mean?
Perhaps. But he could have stuck with accurate, and then offered the further reason.

comment I want to expose my 5-year-old daughter to boys and girls toys equally, but she just turned her nose up at Star Wars. What do I do?
Much appreciated. Your explanation made perfect sense and I'll be careful of my wording in the future.

To the downvoter. Much appreciated. Not sure what you disagreed with, but's it's always great to get voted down, with no comment. Don't let the kid choose? The media is good? What exactly is your view on this?

@Adeptus - While technically true, it makes me want to barf at the thought.

comment Some games and playful ideas for a father to do with his 4 year old daughter?
+1 My 6 yr old daughter changed a wall dimmer on her own. (I talked her through every step, but touched 'nothing'). I told her that 95% of adults found this too scary and would pay $100 to an electrician. She put her hand out, and said "I'll take $50, family discount."

comment Is it normal for a toddler belly to last into the pre-school years?
Can you give an example of correct usage? Are there cases where one is having an issue that's otherwise hidden and BMI reveals a cause for concern?
