comment How do you encourage a toddler that you suspect may be gifted?
In my answer to the linked question, I pointed out that a) the defining factor in future success is practice, and b) being "gifted" as a child is not a predictor of future results. The answer for your toddler is exactly the same as it is for any toddler: help him find activities that are challenging and fun, encourage him to try hard, and allow plenty of time for play.

comment How can I make my travel schedule easier on my 5-year old?
@mmr pretty sure. When I first get home, he punches me. Then he stops until it starts getting closer to the time I leave, when he starts up again.

No, looking for a new job isn't going to work just yet. I'm going to be doing this for a while, at least another year.

comment How do I talk to my child about homelessness and mental illness?
Have you asked him what he thinks about the situation? Why does he think the panhandler is homeless? Why does he think the panhandler doesn't have any food? Is he worried for them? Does he want to help them? Sometimes the best way to talk to a kid is to help them talk to you.

comment How can I encourage my 5-year-old to learn to swim?
I'm probably strong enough, but I'm not a great swimmer... More of a I can survive in the water swimmer.

comment How to avoid corporal punishment?
At five and two, they really should be going to bed pretty close together anyway, so I would agree that video games and tv are a little to exciting for that time of day.
