comment When is it safe to start letting our children go into relationships?
Can you define what you mean by relationships and the age range? Maturity level really matters in this.

comment What age-appropriate sports allow the whole family to participate?
+1 for the Martial Arts, I started my son a year ago and while he is ok with it I know it will take some time with him. When we see older kids and the teens do some exhibitions he is excited about it and I just tell him if he practices he'll be able to do that sometime.

comment At what age should a child stop accompanying a parent into the “wrong” public toilet?
+1 with the comfort level, especially the child. If they are not going to want to do it then don't force them.

comment What is the reason for covering infants during transport?
Same here, my wife was very strict on keeping wind off the kids until they were 1 year old. I think its a chinese thing...

comment How worried should I be about head bumps as my infant learns to get around?
One thing in addition to what torbeng says is to watch your reactions, sometimes our kids will hit themselves and not be sure of what happened, if we look worried they will cry. So we don't give them cues unless it looks like a really hard bump, don't worry after awhile you'll know, then we go up and hold them and check. Otherwise if its a light one we will laugh at it and the kids will go on. They are pretty resilient, mine have taken some spills I was sure would have resulted in serious injuries only to see them get up and run around more.

This is exactly what I have done, although if you have balance issues I would not recommend it. wink

comment How can I brush my toddlers' teeth when he won't let me?
We do this, but we have my son brush in front of the wall mirror, he likes to see himself while he brushes and its less work for us to hold the mirror. sometimes I even engage in a contest to see who brushes the best, and we do it together.

comment How and when should I teach my children how to swim?
We did the same thing, there tend to be more and more baby/toddler-swim classes that you can sign up for, we had great success with those.

comment How can I get my son to stay in bed at bedtime?
+1 for "snuggling" it's how we kept our son in bed when he started doing the same thing.
