Re: table manners fro pre schoolers

It's a tough one -- I've got one very fast eater and one very slow eater so definitely empathise! While I agree that your house, your rules, is a valid approach, I would ask @dudette to reconsider on the friend whose son has ASD. It *is* a disability and you should really be guided by your friend on...

Re: Hybrid or full electric, not sure which way to go.

We've also been fully electric for several years and wouldn't go back. We do use the car for longer journeys (~250miles) 2-3 times a year and opted for a Tesla for that reason. The supercharger network is really reliable, it's very well maintained, the car plans charging stops into your journey, etc...

Re: Local caterer for a dinner party

I'm also really curious about this as we've looked at yhangry in the past but found it expensive. Would any of you be willing to share a rough price per head?

Re: Recommendations for educational psychologist for 8 year old

I'm not sure if she's an educational psychologist but we see Stephanie Doig (virtually and in Wimbledon) and have found her very helpful. She works a lot with the Effra Clinic, which specialises in ASD.

Re: Bugaboo or Stokke?

It depends which Bugaboo and how you're planning on using the pram. We had a Bugaboo Bee and absolutely loved it (great turning radius, can take it on the tube relatively easily, easily adjustable handles for users of different heights, the car seat can be on at the same time as the cocoon) BUT it d...

Re: Looking for a first bike for 4 yo- budget £150

Have you thought about doing Bike Club? We've been doing that since our eldest was 4 -- it's about £10/month (slightly less) and you can swap out the bikes as they grow. We've had 2 Frog bikes for a fraction of the price.

Re: Going Rate for a Cleaner

Also £13/hour -- our cleaner took a lot of holiday last year so we used a few other people too. £13 seemed standard if you're not going through an agency.

Re: Private ASD/ADHD assessments

We're also seeing Dr Eleni Paliokosta at the Effra Clinic. It's been hugely expensive (£450 for an initial assessment and I think close to £2,000 for a full assessment). If you already have an EHCP and some kind of diagnosis or previous evaluations, it's likely to be cheaper. It's a bit frustrating ...
