@HedgeMage - the statistical sample comment was meant to be tongue in cheek.. good grief. I updated the post to be more obvious.

comment What are some strategies for raising a bilingual child?
I completely agree. My wife speaks the majority language to our 5 kids and so do caretakers. TV is in majority language, books are in majority language, friends speak majority language. It is easy for me to speak my language when they are under 3-4, but seems to get harder as they become more involved with other parts of society and culture as they turn 4+ years old. I speak my language, but they consistently respond in the majority language so I end up slipping. I try hard, and I've been pretty successful, but I agree that its challenging.

comment What to buy to prepare for the arrival of a new baby?
@David - Yes, and you get so many clothes as gifts, that buying a bunch of outfits is almost worthless. Newborns grow so fast, that you'll end up with outfits that still have tags on them that they've outgrown if you're not careful.

comment How can I get my 12-month baby to sleep in her bed?
You question implies that you feel that she should sleep in her own bed. Are you asking for her benefit or your own? Do you have a problem with her sleeping in your bed? If not, then just let her sleep there, it's not hurting anything, is it?

Is he biting as a defense mechanism, or is he lashing out?
