Almost exactly what Jazzmom said. I haven't set the "outside" rule as a hard and fast thing, but I'll say it almost all the time if it's more than one child. I just can't deal with that many...

I would work really hard to...

I would let her join the club. If the other kids are the same age, they are probably learning the same thing.

I would be somewhat anxious about this. Yes, iPads are a joy in life, but to me so are beer, wine, chocolate, and sports on TV. None of these is inherently bad, but if I spent too much of my time...

I can't. My sister and I got them when we were kids, but we take our kids to an picnic and egg hunt (combination real eggs and candy-filled eggs) through our place of worship. They get the fun of...

I agree with you that it's cheating. I also agree with the PP's about reading contests like this, and I even agreed when I was in elementary school.

That said, some books that my 6 year old has...

Since you can't approach this in a cooperative way with the other parents, I'd cut it off. Maybe allow very limited play with a parent present, nothing else. Your son is probably too young to...

My son shares some behaviors with your daughter. He's almost 7 now and we've had him in play therapy for about 6 months. It's no miracle, but it does help. We're coming to consider my son as a kid...
