comment What features should I look for in an infant or toddler bath tub?
I know we shouldn't do shopping recommendations, but my experience is that IKEA's baby things are really good and dirt cheap.

Handwriting skills are seriously overrated.

comment Is it important to encourage children to experience historic events?
The Swedish crown princess got married recently. I couldn't care less, and completely fail to see how it's historical at all. The lingonberry chocolate was nice though.

Not all airlines allow the carseat, so ask first.

Although I'm highly skeptical to calling a wedding a "historical event", you are otherwise right. So +1.

comment When is physical punishment appropriate?
You could have been taught that without resorting to violence. I understand that you are reluctant to change your opinion in the issue as that means both you and your parents have made a mistake in upbringing and that is something that is hard to admit as everyone wants to see both oneself and ones parents as near-perfect. But nobody is. You are simply wrong here. Spanking is at best pointless, at worst problematic. All research and all experts agree on this. Sorry.

comment How do you tell your child they are terrible at something?
It takes 10.000 hours of practice to get good. But I know I wouldn't have listened to that when I was nine. :-) wisdomgroup.com/report/10000_hours_of_practice dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1078842/…

comment How should I react when my child is being teased at school?
@torbeng, @takk: I wouldn't call that a display of power in any way, but yes, teasing works less good if ignored, and ignoring it does take self-assurance.

A display of power without condoning fighting? How exactly is that supposed to work?

I voted to reopen it. It's badly formulated, but that should be improved, not closed. There are several good answers.

No it is not a null argument. Yes, spanking change the outcome. That's the whole point. Not when it comes to respect, but other things. Physical punishment is bad for your kids. Have you even read any of the other answers here? The whole point is that physical punishment makes your kids aggressive and disobedient. In fact, it doesn't teach respect, it teaches fear, which is often thought to be the same thing but is quite opposite.

I have a lot of respect for everyone, kids, adults, authority figures or not, until they prove that they don't deserve it. Bang goes that theory.

comment When is physical punishment appropriate?
It's true that confirmation bias is a problem with both sides of the argument when talking about anecdotal evidence. That's why science doesn't rely on anecdotal evidence. Actual research shows clearly that physical punishment doesn't help, if anything it makes it worse. It gives kids less respect for adults, more prone to violence and aggression, and increases behavioral problems.
