Quote: Originally Posted by sweetpeppers Even in the tribes she talked about, adults still sometimes played with children, and she says that they were nursed whenever they wanted it. Children weren't made to work ever. They helped when they wanted to, and played the rest of the time. I disagree that watching us take care of the house and do every day things is not go to stimulate intellectual development. Children copy our behavior in their play. I do...
Quote: Originally Posted by QueenOfThePride From what I've read, by age three, children should have moved from parallel play into cooperative play. If a three year old does not have at least one friend that they will engage with in cooperative play, they are socially delayed and deserve to at least be tested for autism or other delays. There could be other things like social anxiety or selective mutism. The best thing for you to do is read, read, read...

what's funny is I know some ppl who think 15 is way too HIGH, and others who think 15 is way too LOW... here, the servers already make minimum, so if every table tipped an extra $10, those servers are better paid than most of the customers!
