How do I find the right martial arts program for my 6 year old boy?

What is the best entry level martial arts program for a quiet, kinda serious, very strong and flexible (can almost do the splits both ways) 6 year old boy? He LOVES anything that has to do with martial arts and Asia (movies, toys, cartoons etc) but I'm confused about the various schools and their strength and weaknesses. I don't want something like "Rex Kwon Do" but I also don't want something that is so watered down that it's just tumbling in a karate uniform. He has a couple of friends who are in Taekwondo but I'm not sold on those programs for him. HELP... Thanks!

Summer program for 15 yr old NYC?

Can you recommend a summer program, August - Sept, for a bright 15 year old girl living in Queens, NYC? My niece is very smart, loves dance and theater and wants to excel academically. She's starting to make choices that aren't ideal, and (unrelated) do somewhat poorly in Math. I would love to find a program in Queens, or NYC for the month of August that can help her with school, inspire her and encourage her in the right direction. Help?!

How to engage a bunch of six year olds?

We're part of a child care co-op arrangement for a month, which means I'll have six 6-year olds to myself for three (non consecutive), six-hour days. I could use some suggestions for creative activities -- running around (we've got lots of outdoor room, wooded and open), arts and crafts, whatever. Ideas that require buying supplies are fine.

Meg Tilly makes it hard to google for...

Kids' book filter: Two sisters, possibly twins, one a brunette named Natalie but known as Tilly, English, involves going to stay in the country and horses, most likely published in the early-mid 80s (when I read it), possibly a trilogy or a series. Any help with the title or author would much appreciated!

Rain rain go away, although this game is moderately fun to play

Awesome but slightly rambunctious 8th grade class going on a school trip to the country. Rain is possible. Possibility of ultra-rare recreational computer access is likely to be a highly compelling reward for good behavior. The kids speak German.

Catfish Song Mystery

Walkin' talkin' dancin' catfish, you are a friend of mine Walkin' talkin' dancin' catfish, I'm in luuuuuv with you.... These are two lines of a song that my husband has been singing to my daughter. No amount of Googling has revealed more lyrics or any information about the song. Can you help us identify the entire song? If not, can you recommend any other silly songs you like singing to kids? Thank you! Getting all the lyrics would be an awesome Father's Day accomplishment!

Simple music machine for kids?

Our kids, 5 and 7, haven't singled in on any specific instrument yet (nor, perhaps, will they ever), but they do love listening to, humming/singing, and dancing to all kinds of music, and playing the various "minor" instruments we've got. We're thinking about buying some sort of simple music machine/synth to have in the house for them play around with. Any recommendations?

meet the flinstones

An email from one of my wifes co-workers - "Last night when I picked up [Child], he was playing outside. I mentioned to one of the PT older caregivers that I was going to get him a tricycle and asked if he rode them there. She said no and pointed to the older kids’ side and indicated that they were all over there (these are kids ages 3 on up) and said that the funny thing about the boys is that they sit on the tricycle and try to push it with their feet…and don’t use the pedals. She said EVERY single one of them do that…" Why? My son does the same thing. He won't use the pedals.
