Can you recommend good science sets or paint (non-watercolor) sets for an 11 year old girl? She likes to experiment and dabble in her room, and has asked about them as gifts. Thanks!

Advice for a seasonal allergy newbie

My 3 year old seems to have seasonal allergies now. (As of about 5 days ago, NYC-area.) I don't have them and his father's were adult-onset, so I don't really know how to minimize them at such a young age. Should we be keeping windows closed at all times? Get an indoor air filter? Avoid going outside at all on high pollen days? I'm not sure how much it should change our/his life going forward. [more inside]

Should a godparent play favourites?

Should a godparent play favourites? My goddaughter is the oldest of my friends' kids. She's 5 now, and we have a great relationship - I love her to bits and she loves spending time with her "fairy godmother". There is now a second child in the family (with his own set of godparents). So - godparents - how does this work? What level of favouritism should I be showing (if any)? [more inside]

Philosophy books for children?

Does anyone know of any books for children around the age of 9 (a rather intelligent 9 year old mind you) that explores philosophical concepts, specifically metaphysics and epistemology. I gave him some old philosophy textbooks of mine, but they were a little too much for him I think.

At what point do you start worrying about your children's credit reports?

The other day my 13 year old received an application for a Discover Card in the mail. At the time, I dismissed it as junk mail. Trans Union mentions that receiving applications may be a sign of a problem, and even has a site related to the issue here. While diving into a fraud investigation request for one application seems overkill, how common is this, and at what point does one start monitoring all this? [more inside]

iso: specific yoga for kids book

Looking for a very specific book of yoga positions for children - it was simply written and the illustrations were black ink line drawings on white paper, usually of young people and adults doing introductory yoga positions. My mother used the book with my brother and myself regularly in the 1970s, but looking through the various kids' yoga books on Amazon now I'm not finding it. Anyone who grew up in the same era, or who raised kids in the same era, find this familiar?

Which book is my daughter remembering?

Can anyone help my 8 year old daughter remember a particular children's book that made an impression on her? I don't have much to go on, but the story seems to revolve around a boy (and possibly a dog) who live in a village(?) at a time when bombing is happening (suggesting WWII?). The boy spends a lot of time watching trains (skipping school to do so) and dreams of going to his grandmother's house until he eventually runs away on one after some problems at home (possibly involving the police). While on the train he meets a family *on the top*(?) of the train and befriends a girl who is like a servant/slave to the family. She thinks she read it in the last year or so and I guess it would be appropriate for her age. Any ideas what the book might be? Thanks in advance! (note that I suspect the book is by a British author)
