comment Getting a 5-year-old up and going in the morning
Trick him into thinking that every day is Saturday and he doesn't have to go to school? I know my kids get up at the crack of dawn on a non-school and non-work day, but regular weekdays it's like pulling teeth to get them up on time.

comment 3 year boy old will not wear shorts or t-shirts WHY?
Depending on your local climate, keeping a 3 year old out of pants and long sleeve shirts during the summer really matters.

comment Do children need hot meals twice a day?
No research assertions keep this as a comment instead of an answer: If she's eating a balanced diet and getting enough calories, it really doesn't matter if the food is hot or cold. I'd spend more effort on making sure that her diet stays varied to try and keep her from becoming a picky eater.

comment How do I persuade my 4 year old daughter that School is Cool?
This sounds more like a fear of change or the unknown than anything in particular wrong with school. However, once she's been going for some time, gently probe and see if there's anything in particular she's having problems with.

comment How do I teach my baby to not touch my computer?
Has this "give them a toy laptop/smartphone/widget" ever actually worked for anyone? Because it's never worked for me. Even in the infant "I'm just beginning to figure out how to manipulate things" stage, they've never been able to capture my children's attention like my own widget. Whether it's an age-appropriate children's toy or even my previous smartphone (which still worked and did smartphone things), they'd rather have the one I'm using.
