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.

comment How do you feed a picky eater?
-1: I'd like to see you reference some scientific studies that show that children can look at food for a split second (the typical care/reasoning that goes in to deciding they don't want to eat something) and determine that they have a chemical sensitivity. I could be wrong, but the fact that a child (or human) can determine through their senses that they have an allergic or chemical sensitivity seems pretty far fetched. I have food allergies that developed as I got older, and my body never gave nor currently gives me any indication based on sight, taste, or smell.
