comment Why would a child hold his breath regularly?
I just want to note that if someone else's child is going through something like this, you shouldn't listen to the ill-conceived notions that he/she is doing it for attention or because they find it interesting or relaxing. I've covered all of this with several ENT specialists during our dealings with this matter and they've all told me that based on these types of symptoms, a psychological cause is almost definitely not the case. Get it checked out, and go with your gut when you feel like there is something wrong, because you're probably right.

comment What is a positive way to handle a boy who acts like a girl?
I'll give you a +1 if you provide some information to back up the claim that "There is very little correlation between effeminate behaviour in boys and homosexuality".

comment How do you deal with a 9 year old not doing their homework?
@ChristineGordon - I'm not saying you should ignore the fact that its hard, I'm saying that you shouldn't use negative language to describe it as such. Describing something as a fun challenge and showing passion and energy to solve problems is quite different than saying "I know this is hard". I think the former is an essential tool and the latter (despite showing empathy) is utterly useless and has no positive impact on learning.
