comment How do you warm the milk in a-drop in liner style bottle?
@barfieldmv, well technically they still form... you're just giving it a bit of time for thremo-dynamics and convection to kick in and spread it out a bit more uniform. I always preferred nGinius's stir method for that. Or shake.

comment What is a good strategy for getting our 5 year old to finish dinner before expecting dessert?
you might want to consider marking one of these as your accepted answer once you've had a chance to implement it and see it's effect.

comment How do you explain “Right” and “Left” politics to a child without bias?
-1; This doesn't really answer the question. "how do you explain ... to a child...." This just attempts to explain the differences.

comment What's so hard about home made carrot baby food?
@Shog9, in order to ask that question, you kinda have to already know the answer to this one (supposing the one Koert proposed is the right one).

comment How do you discuss a controversial history topic with a child?
+1 This mirrors the approach I got from my mother, and she later explained to me: don't intentionally introduce such a topic, but mentally be ready for any such topic to come up... have a plan of how you would handle rough questions like that showing up all of a sudden.

@David, I debated that myself, but figured long term a new parent would be more likely to look here than cooking.SE so it made more sense to put it here. If enough folks agree with you and vote to move I won't object.
