comment What potty training goals should I use for my son's reward chart?
The advice you give is good, but honestly, I don't feel like this answers the question. You're discussing what the rewards should be. I already know the rewards (the various parts and residents of the aquarium). What I'm looking for are what are the best milestones to which I should tie those rewards.

comment I've taken all of my 13 year old daughter's possessions, and she's still disrespectful
OP, I would also suggest that you provide more details about the actual behavior your daughter is exhibiting. It will be difficult, if not impossible, to provide you with specific advice if we don't know what type of things your daughter is doing that you consider disrespectful. It would also help if we knew what you have done (aside from taking all her possessions) so far. I removed a lot of detail on your upbringing, because your daughter's upbringing, what your expectations for her are, and how you've attempted to address the situation so far are far more relevant.

I've made some significant edits to this, to help clarify what you are asking. Please feel free to make further changes as you feel necessary. I also ask that everyone remember to vote based on the quality of the question itself, and not how it is worded or presented.

comment What potty training goals should I use for my son's reward chart?
@Joe For things like '14 days without an accident', we hope that the stars listed under each will help. Each day he goes without an accident, we'll fill in a blank with a star, but if there's an accident, we'll remove all of the stars for that goal and start over. I'm hoping that will make it a bit more "real", without being overly frustrating/discouraging.

comment First keyboard: Qwerty or Dvorak?
Hi, and welcome to the site. Your answer is receiving downvotes for a couple of reasons (Jeremy Miller already mentioned spelling, formatting, and lack of references). The main reason, in my opinion, is because rather than focusing on the question, you seem to be mostly posting about which keyboard you prefer (and even that isn't terribly clear), rather than what keyboard is best to start a toddler on. Please consider editing your answer for clarity, and to better address the question.

comment How to tell prospective nanny about camera monitoring
Thanks for refocusing your question! These other questions may have some helpful information for you: What is a healthy, ethical way to deal with a nanny-cam?, What can we do to monitor and evaluate how a babysitter is doing, and What are the pros and cons of using a nanny-cam?
