comment How can we keep my niece's hair out of her eyes?
My kid tends to rub her eyes - with usually dirty hands - to get hair out of them. So it is likely to become a safety/hygiene issue.

It's a heath problem. My kid tends to rub her eyes - with usually dirty hands - to get hair out of them.

@Martha - count your blessings. I have the same problem with my youngest (she's 3 and this started at 1.5 as well) - except my wife flat out refuses to allow her hair to be cut ! :( I would strongly recommend a haircut - they aren't that frequently needed (say every 2 months) and pretty easy to do at that age as you don't need a model-perfect looks

@noelicus - oh, he only gets the reward when a reasonable (by our standard) portion is finished - which usually means 95% of what's on the plate(s).

comment What are the best approaches to dealing with 3-year-old's copying of older sibling's illness symptoms?
+1 since it's a good advice in general. However I can't accept the answer since in our case it's literally the case of aping and NOT of asking for attention (it's clear, because this exact approach - which we tried - yielded zero benefits; AND since she never lacks attention when he's sick - actually, she is a significant beneficiary when he's sick since she can play with the toys he isn't allowed to). The best indicator is that she never fakes being sick if she's NOT in earshot when he complains of the symptoms - e.g. if he's ALREADY sick she never fakes being sick post-factum.

comment How to stop my son being overly sensitive of his peers?
@Erin - something to do with this being a normal human behavior. Of COURSE he is doing it to make himself feel better. Doesn't make it bullying. Bullying is intentionally HARMING someone. Having your feelings hurt because you're jealous does not constitute harm.
