comment When and how to teach a 2 year old how to walk properly
Just because I care doesn't mean I'm rushing anybody. I never said it was a big deal, either. I just noticed a lot of things correlate with it. It is more fatiguing for her, stepping on things hurts a lot more, she runs slower than other kids ... and amongst other things, sometimes she would lose her balance. It's quite easy to type "unless she has some affliction", but how can I tell if and when there is an affliction (developing)? I was merely asking for information, epxlicitly stating that I do not know what to expect or do.

comment Evidence based guidelines for front or rearward facing pushchairs/strollers?
I read articles saying what you say and I think very much along the same lines as you do. What I would like to contribute: Even seeing parents has been observed many times to be calming for children (of about any age) and that is the only fact I would take from all those studies and not go into discussions about stress. Consequently, if you feel you need to calm your kid pick a stroller where its facing you. If you want your kid to see more of the world, pick the other kind. It's a matter of choice and the individual kid, nothing else. No general rule!

Turns out she did it for fun but is quite capable of walking quietly.

Ah, you think she keeps doing it not because she wouldn't know any better, but she gets fun out of my/our reactions ... and probably enjoys the noise she makes. I don't find that hard to believe. I'll see what I can make of it. Thanks!

Yes, I have considered visiting a professional, but I think that would be overreacting. It's not like she is actually hurting herself (except when she steps on things), or an obvious hindrance to other things. However it definetly is fatiguing, it hurts more when she steps on things and the noise is becoming an issue, as we are living in an appartment.

My question is not limited to quitetly and/or softly. I would actually like to learn about the whole process.

comment What to do when my 3-year-old holds poop in and won't go in diaper or on potty?
Valkyrie didn't say scared of the potty, she said scared to poop. Have you ever talked (i know he is only 33 months old) about it, especially at a time and place when and where you don't want him to poop? Does he have friens who also refuse to poop? Maybe he'd rather poop at his grand parents ... do you have any knowledge from your child besides what you have observed yourself?

comment Is it considered harmful in the longer run to frighten the child so that he behaves the way we want?
1. Love your questions! 2. No cultural difference here.
