i've been skimming all-time top posts in r/parenting and omg, this destroyed me. the oster/kaplan "parenting economics" set may tell you it doesn't matter how you raise your kid so long as you're not abusive, but they just don't understand the depth of the relationship pic.twitter.com/M1sdT67ysY

When I was 17, I got into a fight. A concussion for both me and the other kid. It led to a conversation with my dad that changed how I have approached my life since. Strangely, my dad wasn’t mad. As he said, quietly, β€œI’m deeply ashamed.” He didn’t punish me, or take… twitter.com/i/web/status/1… pic.twitter.com/OjdNMWElRo

Parenting tweet: Elimination Communication is amazing. When my wife first suggested itβ€”β€˜potty training from day 1’ β€” I literally laughed in her face. Baby is now 8 months and crawls to her potty to go (!). Haven’t had a dirty diaper in months. Can’t imagine life without it.

My son is 8, and he is obsessed with coding. I've been teaching him Python, but it's challenging to find good programming tutorials accessible to kids. After some time, this is where we settled: 1. Book: Python for Kids: amzn.to/493SWcP 2. Online course: Brilliant's… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…

4. when this plays out with my kid, and im sure it will, i would be careful to avoid making things so dramatic/binary. can you walk a little bit and then ill carry you a little bit? soothe him and love him if he’s distressed, but then cheerfully challenge him to grow

Having been a step dad for the past few years, this is basically the most important and most difficult thing to get right. Most of the other bits are reasonably low stakes/intuitive. This is neither - getting the balance right is super important

If you’re a dad and you want your kids to share hobbies with you, watch this video. Nothing is more important to me in life than sharing memories with my kids and making them want to be around me when they’re old enough to not be around me. pic.twitter.com/dkbMxHZMVK

Childcare ages 0-3 doesn't have long term developmental benefits to children. Kinder ages 3-5 *does,* but in amounts that are too small to facilitate much paid work for parents. Childcare is about warehousing children so parents can work, you've said as much yourself. twitter.com/Samfr/status/1…

Have a friend who speaks to his kids like adults. They developed an advanced vocabulary early on. Then they started kindergarten. At school, they were surrounded by kids with limited vocabularies and "baby talking" teachers. When their speech degraded, he started homeschooling.

Our 1 y/o hasn’t woken us up once in the middle of the night since ~3.5mo old. She sleeps from 7pm to 7am every night. Falls asleep in minutes. We didn’t get lucky, we just followed a methodology we picked up from a few friends. Here it is.

Exercise can affect your unborn children's genes by altering the chemistry of DNA in sperm and egg cells. Aerobic exercise for 3 months altered sperm DNA by silencing genes linked to the risk of autism, OCD, Alzheimer’s, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and atherosclerosis.
