comment My eldest is aware of “an f-word” but doesn't know what it is, should I tell him?
My son heard this word at 4 years old and kept asking what it meant. I told him I would tell him when he's double his age. He periodically asks again. At 5 years old he told me he would just look it up on the internet if I didn't tell him. I said NO DON'T DO THAT! Luckily he never did!! Now he's about to turn 8 and reminding me about our pending conversation... 8 seemed so far away back then! Now I still feel uncomfortable explaining it all to him. Who knows what's the right time...

What is the reason you feel the nursery school's kindergarten would better serve your daughter?

comment What are some milestones a child should reach before learning programming?
That's really great how you encouraged your kids to help you and had them doing shell coding at 4-5. I'm curious, 4-5 seems very young for shell coding, I'd imagine they would've been programming Ruby on Rails by 5-6 then. Why so long for the jump from shell coding to web programming?

comment When do kids start learning fractions in school?
At 9 years old, learning fractions is mostly a function of how much time you spend teaching her and how willing she is to learn. Sounds like she's willing to learn, so as long as you persevere she will be at the top within the group of smart kids. Just think what that will do for her confidence and understanding of what happens when you put in the effort!
