comment How do you tell your child they are terrible at something?
I think the problem is that when she started, she really was better than most of the kids. However, she took a year and a half off to do other stuff, and thinks she is still better than everyone.

comment What should children call a step-grandparent?
Personally, I think you AND your mom should stay out of it. If the kids are happy with "Mr Joe" and he is happy with it, then there should be no issue. If they want to call him "Grandpa" or some variant and he is happy with it, again there should be no issue.

comment What are some hacks and gadgets for a soon-to-be dad?
Yeah, that's the trend now. Then again, if you still have your cordless, that feature will work even if you don't have your phone line turned on

comment Is it important to encourage children to experience historic events?
The amount of significance you give something should reflect your values. Watching a wedding of two people I have never and will never meet just because they are famous for no other reason than one of them being the child of a famous person (who himself is only famous for the same reason) in no way reflects my values, so I would not encourage my kids to watch it.

comment How many hours of television per day are acceptable for a pre-schooler?
@Nathan, I upvoted your answer. But Beofett does have a point. I think a small edit of changing "We don't have a TV and my three kids are awesome. During meal prep they" to "We don't have a TV, so during meal prep my three kids:" would make your answer less "preachy"

comment Why do my children cry in my wife's arms but are quiet with me?
Read it in a parenting book when my children were babies, but don't remember which one. And personal experience. Sorry that I can't be more help on that score.

comment How do you handle poor behavior by other people's children?
Well, crap, you said pretty much everything I was going to say. And probably said it better than I would have. +1 The only thing I might add would be addressing/discussing the behavior with your own child afterwards.

comment Should I enroll my child in driving lessons or teach them myself?
But will you personally feel more comfortable letting your child drive if they've only been taught by you, or if they've been taught by you AND an unbiased third party?
