  This happened to me... long story short: I was fine    I started formal school when I was about 10, I'm not sure if I could read very well, I vaguely remember that I didn't, but I remember comments that I caught up really quickly. All through school I had above average grades.
My friend's daughter had similar tooth decay, they ended up removing all of the front teeth when she was two and she just looked like she was 5 for the next few years  It was done under general anesthesia and went really well. Her molars are silver so I'm assuming they did root canals in the back as well.
I don't know, but I'd like to know too!   I almost never help my son with anything he can do or figure out himself... I don't really care if someone wants to run around after him to make sure he doesn't tip over, I just don't really like the implication that that is what I should be doing and I'm being a bad parent if I don't.    I've also heard that I don't "interact" with him enough... I know kids are more than capable of letting their parents know they need...
  These are just looking at live births who died within their first year of age. 
I have nothing constructive to add, just that I know exactly how you feel. Everything is going really well for us now so I almost feel that I'd be "pushing our luck" with having another, but then at the same time I have the same fears that we might be pushing our luck the other way... what if something tragic does happen? We'll be too old to start again and I don't want to be done parenting.    Whenever I try to give away my son's baby things, I can't bring myself to...
I like this. A lot of parents are quick to assume their children are little angels and no one else has the right to discipline their children, ever. (not talking about particular person in this thread or the OP, but it seems to be the general direction parents seem to be heading in).  I would hope that if I'm not present to discipline my child and my he isn't on his best behavior, another parent would. Yelling is fine to me, as long at it isn't something obscene, and I...
  They don't, at the first sign of complications they're transferred to the hospital. That's why their home birth stats are so good.   It's kind of like my mom's logic: she always gets the new car which require zero maintenance, then when they get older she gives them to my dad and she gets another new one. When my dad drives them, they all start to require repairs and maintenance... she insists because it's the way she drives the cars that her cars have never required...
Did they drop the WPA requirements recently? The article is from March 2009.   Our midwives in Ontario also stay with their patients if they have to transfer to the hospital. They also escort mom and baby back home and help them get settled which I think is pretty cool.
    If it's true, I can see the stat making sense... in the UK if there are complications, you're transferred to a hospital. In addition to just labor complications, hospitals also have to deal with birth defects, traumas, drug addicts, etc.
I haven't... but I'll have to check it out if I come across it, I just watched the trailer for it        That was interesting... and scary. I understand there were points of the article which have been found to be defamatory... but still...
