comment Ideas for dealing with a 16 month old toddler who likes to climb things?
Hi ZeMom and welcome to the site. Your answer is a good one, and no problem with old questions, that's part of our system. I did edit out the link to your blog, however; in general, self promotion isn't part of our system, particularly for newer users. Please put the link in your profile, instead, and feel free to refer to it there if appropriate. Thanks!

comment Does diluting (liquid) dipyrone in juice affects its effectiveness?
Please research the safety of dipyrone; it is not generally recognized as a safe medicine, despite being available over the counter in some countries. In any event, this is off-topic on Parenting and should be referred to a pediatrician or pharmacist.

comment Toddler does not like to drink milk
Oh, I don't interpret this as recommending fighting with kids as food. I was just trying to point out that parents tend naturally to overcorrect that way; even myself as a parent of two kids one of which eats broccoli and green beans preferentially to most other foods, and the other of which at 21 months typically eats three over easy eggs for breakfast, I find myself sometimes trying to reflexively make sure they eat enough at every single meal - so I tend to assume parents will do that and suggest less worry :)

I think this is a good idea to keep in mind (and intended roughly the same in my less detailed answer), but I also think it's easy as a parent to over-focus on some of this. It's important to not keep on top of exactly what and how much your child eats to the point that you create bad eating habits (such as 'clean your plate'), or you cause them to not enjoy (for example) some vegetables because you force a different vegetable they don't like. Being aware of calcium and vitamin D are important - but I would definitely not force milk.

In case it's not clear, slow-flow cups are commonly called sippy cups in the US.

comment Daycare provider says that kids with dietary restrictions cannot eat at the daycare
This sounds like a question that ultimately is a legal one: is this permitted. At minimum you'd need to clarify your country of residence, and in general we don't really have legal experts on this site.

comment 20 yo daughter left home to live with a “bad” girl - what should I do?
I think it's unfortunate that people choose to downvote a question which is asking for help in dealing with such a difficult situation, from the asker's point of view. Asking for help is a lot better than not asking.

comment potty… what am I doing wrong
Many children that age enjoy sitting on the potty for long periods of time. My three year old happily sits that long (and he's fully trained). He just likes being alone by himself reading a book or playing with the iPad.

Okay, that makes sense.
