"All I would add to the comments below is about combing. Once you have a density or a sort of density, I would comb it. My hair is a bit curly and needs to be trained to go in a certain direction. You may now have this problem but…"
"His reaction certainly seems a bit extreme. Especially when he is at your daughter's party. The weather in England is perfect right now for going shirtless and I intend to take full advantage. Less washing of shirts for one thing but also nice…"
"Hi David, welcome to the Community. Am a Scotsman living in England currently. I work in a bank so my work week wear is a suit. Am a casual dresser at heart so mostly jeans and shirts. I am in Spain at the moment so am even more casual but even here…"
"Am not a huge fan of ties, but, like you used to, I wear them for work. Best advice is: whatever the main colour of the shirt is, wear it with a tie where that colour is present but in a minor way. I have a checked shirt with several colours in…"
"To be honest, I don't know if Barbers have to be licensed in UK. I got lucky when I moved to Birmingham and found a Turkish barbershop just 5 minutes walk away from my place. It's GBP 12 for a cut and same price for beard work. Seems about…"

"Never really had a problem with co-sleeping. Although there were times when I'd come home form an evening shift and find both kids asleep with Mom. (It's amazing how much bed a three year old can take up!) both my kids were…"
"Yes, everything I ever taught in Child Development and discipline courses included that the adult must be consistent and not give meaningless threats of consequences.

"Sounds typical of a lot of what I experience when I work with kids today. They are so used to sitting and playing video games or whatever, that they dont adjust well to physical labor/exertion.
With my son I never really let him get started with…"
"We found an innovative solution. I told him if we go on the hike, there would be no complaining ... except by my right hand, who is a character in a lot of our play time (sort of a puppet, but I don't bother with a physical puppet), and…"
