comment Impact on kids NOT having TV?
I have three kids, ages 13,11, and 8. We got rid of our TVs when they were 4,3, and newborn. There have been no instances of this causing them problems at school that I know of. On the other had, they are all avid readers and do exceptionally well in school.

comment Is it reasonable for parents with small children to use the disabled toilet?
@dan, yes. There is a difference between "handicap accessible" and "handicap reserved". Bathrooms are accessible. Parking spots are reserved. There is nothing wrong with using something that is handicap accessible if it is not already in use.

comment How can we ask our 22-year-old son to leave?
I think this is a terrible answer. Buy him off? No. It is time to kick him out.

comment How can I encourage 5 year old to kick the ball?
I think this a mountain out of a molehill situation. Unless there is some reason that she really needs to kick a ball, I'd just let it go.

comment How old really is my child?
I know this wasn't specifically asked, but I would also be careful as she gets older with age cutoffs for school. If she just barely makes the cutoff I would seriously consider waiting and starting a year later
