comment Should I really be insisting that my daughter finish eating her meal?
This seems to be more an argument for carefully anticipating what a needed/desired serving is.

comment How to inspire a 7 year old to accelerate reading efforts?
Getting the librarian involved is a great idea. My grandmother was a librarian and was absolutely amazing at picking out books for me that fit my interests; admittedly she was choosing holiday gifts for a child she knew well, but her instincts were clearly well-honed from her job.

comment How to inspire a 7 year old to accelerate reading efforts?
+1 because I laughed and laughed at the idea of my kids fighting over who gets to read the dictionary after school :-)

comment How can we teach our pre-schooler enough of a second language to cover basic manners?
+1 for encouraging her to learn both sides of the manners equation -- it's good for her to know what the other person in a conversation is trying to convey but I wouldn't have thought of that!

comment Should we put our a child in a preschool with a primary language we do not speak?
Have you discussed the possibility with one of the exclusively-Mandarin schools, and what was their take on it? I am curious what the perspective of educators is on the idea!
