comment Any suggestions on how to control yelling and negativity on our part, and also teach my 8 yr old son to not feel so helpless and cry so easily?
I highly recommend a calendar like this: amazon.com/The-2012-Magnetic-Calendar-15519/dp/1608973557. We have one. It goes on our fridge. All doctor appointments, events, vacations - everything goes on there. Makes sure everyone knows whats going on. As for the breakfast problem - timer approach may work for you, but also try reversing the schedule. i.e. breakfast BEFORE shower. Took too long to eat? Well, I guess you're going to the school stinky! A kid would much rather go hungry (which peers don't see) rather than stinky (which peers do see). Try it ;)

comment What is a good compilation of songs in english for children that includes the “classic” ones?
I'd highly recommend recording your own voice singing those songs. Familiar voice, familiar accent, and fairly cheap =). You can obtain the melodies for free with a simple google. Just add a voice-over :)

Have you looked at volunteermatch.org? They let you search for opportunities for kids (kids/teens/adults/groups).
