comment Are there any studies about whether learning to read in two languages is slower?
@Beofett, the former. I can't imagine anyone learning a new language and learning to read at the same time!

comment Is there software that helps teach pre-schoolers to recognize letters?
Yup, Starfall was what came to mind when I read the question title. Doesn't help for Norwegian though :)

comment How much should I interact with my newborn?
@Lennart, yup, +1 for slings. With a sling and the baby facing forwards you can get on with lots of things and they're very happy.

Yup, my answer would be 'when the first one leaves home' :)

comment Why won't our infant stop crying when in the car seat?
Yup, we had the same problem when our daughter was a bit older - she hated the car until she got a seat where she could see out the window. (Though I doubt that is the problem at the moment). Though, possibly being able to see the parents in the front would be reassuring too. Maybe she doesn't like the noise of the car?

comment Is the “1 2 3 Magic” strategy for disciplining effective?
+1 for the 1.5 year-old. Our 3 year-old counts at us when we don't do what she wants :)

comment How long is breastfeeding effective and worthwhile?
@Javid, and why standardise by gestation time? Why not standardise by "when they can get up, walk around and forage on their own"?

comment How do you feed a picky eater?
I don't know that I'd go as far as ron M. below, but letting them actually get hungry does help. If you're not careful, you can fall into a vicious cycle of 'fussy at mealtime, hungry after, gets a snack, not hungry at mealtime'.

comment How should a stepfather respond to “You are not my Father!”?
Yup, nothing to stop a biological child saying "I wish you weren't my father", which probably hurts just as much (if not more)...
