comment Can too much water lower the level of an important minerals? In 11 months toddler?
@Jax I didn't say "bad calories" -- energy is energy; you just don't get other trace elements and minerals from some foods. According to author and food chemist Udo Pollmer the juices don't bring in enough sodium, and without sodium the cells cannot get rid of the excess water. Hence eat more salt to prevent water intoxication.

Loss of appetite will be more severe if the toddler gets juices. Then water intoxication is more likely because most calories come from juices and the toddler doesn't eat salty (savory) foods.

comment What is a healthy, ethical way to deal with a nanny cam?
I'd just not do it. If you don't trust the nanny without a cam, find a different nanny.

Or park the toddler in front of the TV and lock the bedroom door.

comment How to deal with a teenage daughter who refuses to dress modestly
@Marc Wow. That post is so full of distrust... it can take 8 or 10 years to fix a relationship destroyed that badly. I remember my father trying to make sure I deal with money properly and he had me keep books. This only taught me to make sure some money never even makes it into said books. Do cooperate. As a parent you should have the wisdom and insight that a teenager does not have.

comment Should 18+ kids still have a tight schema for bed and PC-usage?
None of these reasons seem convincing to me, especially not more convincing than what others said regarding kids learning to manage their own lives. The "bright lights" argument seems to ignore that many people fall asleep in front of the tv or while reading on their tablets or phones.

Wouldn't it be better to first ask the teacher's side of the story?
