comment When should my child transition from tricycle to a bicycle?
I'm looking at doing this with my next one by taking off the pedals from my older one's bike. I don't need to buy another bike just for one, if I knew about these early on I'd have bought one long ago they look really effective.

comment What are the (dis)advantages of putting a child in a nursery or pre-school even when one parent is at home?
It's one point madge and off the topic of the question, I just found it less than helpful for the answer or a comment as to how a vast majority of children are there. Same as the kid warehousing, I'm sure they exist but I saw many day cares that were not like that. I think you are mostly overgeneralizing.

comment What are the pros and cons of a chicken-pox party vs immunization?
I was vaccinated as a kid but got it later on, through school, never did go to a chicken-pox party and only heard about them later. It was an inconvenience but not much more, although it was a very itchy week...I'd say see what happens and don't knowingly expose your kids to something they might get by chance on their own. Some diseases can be avoided and I take that view in my own life.

Madge usually I respect your opinions, but this one seems to be more from a bad experience you had, its one answer of yours I disagree with. Few of your points I find self-evident but then everyone has bad experiences. I have never seen ay cares funded only from welfare programs, although I don't run in those circles I don't think they are representative.

comment Is bribing children with cash incentives a good idea?
good question but like many I avoid the bribery for things the kids should be doing anyway, I think it sets a bad example

comment Why does my infant wake crying the instant we put him in his bed?
Ours were too but they were ok with a slight incline, you don't need much just enough to offset the "gyroscope" but torbeng noted. Now I'm glad to know the name!

comment My child has chickenpox, am I infectious?
When dealing with infectious diseases like this, especially ones in the immunization regimen, I would avoid seeing an infant. You may or may not carry it, but why tae the chance. +1 on this one!

comment How do you address hoarding behavior in a primary-schooler?
I'm no psychologist but with this many changes in her life maybe your daughter is looking for some stability, if you have a child counselor it may be worth checking into. Or check and see if your school has a psychologist you can talk to and see if she exhibits these symptoms in school.

comment Should we circumcise our son?
In America its more normal to be circumcised, I am but did not do it to either of my sons as I would rather something like that be their choice. Though who knows if they will decide.
