comment How to stop my son being overly sensitive of his peers?
@DVK - I agree with you. I see it as part of preparing him for the real world where people often say things that are not nice, but he doesn't need to take these to heart. This can sometimes be friends who say things without meaning to hurt and sometimes its just someone being a jerk. He needs to learn to be able to balance things that people say without feeling hurt at every comment that is made.

comment How do you handle bilingual education in a country where you do not speak the language natively?
@Guillaume - I started learning Chinese at 23 years of age and have been learning for over 8 years. At 3 years of age my sons pronunciation was already much better than mine and he rarely makes mistakes with knowing which tone to use. Adults can definitely distinguish which tone to use, but don't use them as well as children growing up speaking the language :)
