We've had letters from our management office asking if anyone is having 'choking' issues with their toilets.

Anyone experiencing their toilet choking, please inform the management.

We then take the path all the way to McDonalds at the East Coast Park Seafood Centre (big long run adjacent to th...

I have lived in two places in Singapore and never paid the agent's fee. The first was $4500 and this current place is $3350 - so the rule regarding the rent being X amount denoting who pays the fee is rubbish and I even called the governing body to check. It's purely down to you and the agent to agr...

I now have my parents here for Christmas and they are heading off to Bintan to play golf for a few days - I just want them to enjo...

There the Eddie Baur seat that's transportable, you can buy them in First Fiew Years at Paragon (if they still sell them) or you can hire one from the Toy Rental Cllub (http://www.toyrentalclub.com/carseats.html) I would insert image but no idea how to on this forum. http://i.pgcdn.com/pi/4/11/41/41...

My son was on Nestle NAN from birth till about 18 months when I moved to cows milk. I think those forumlas for 4 years olds are a gimmick, by then your child should be on a healthy balanced diet but I imagine it's for the locals to get the kids consuming the 'brain boosting' god knows what that goes...

A lot of the pre schools go from Playgroup to K2 (or when child turns 7 if going to local school). Some have quite a laid back approach, others are structured. My son went to WhiteLodge and he loved it there. Blue House Nursery has a very holistic approach, as does I think The Garden House (which is...

I started my son at 23 months. Although I was doing parent/toddler classes and JWT I felt it was good for him to start doing drop off so he could interact with other kids and also it gave me some time to myself as I don't have a helper. I only started on twice a week then increased it. Don't feel pr...

From what I can see from the web site, it says the book isn't out till the 15th June which probably explains why you can't find it. Maybe try later next month.

No, he's been at the same school for 2.5 years. I think in the past it has mainly been put down to typical 'toddler' behavior but now he's older and should be more aware of his actions, it seems to be more obvious. He doesn't want to socialise with friends, would rather play on his own and doesn't g...

Child Psychologist Recommendation

My son has been having some behavioral issues in school lately, and I suppose at home too. It's usually be put down to typical pre-school boy behavior but in spite of any interventions so far, he's not improving. He has regular tantrums in school (throws chairs/tables, rips charts etc off walls), do...
