comment My 2 year old is a bully!
A good stepping stone to "share" is "trade". You can play with my toy, but can I play with yours? Trades can be a bit uneven, and evolve into "trade without getting anything back right at that moment".

comment How to protect my children from cyber-bullying
Are we really still dispensing the "don't talk to strangers" advice? Most kidnappings happen by known people, and the negative effects on self confidence may outweigh the "not talking to someone will make them not kidnap you" chance.

comment Is it a good approach to have a policy of apologizing for yelling at a kid?
"Children are human" Exactly. If you wouldn't do it to a fellow adult, you probably should not do it to a child. Same goes for eg. spanking.

comment How can I keep my newborn baby warm during nappy change?
About the wipe warmer: our baby wipes are reusable (just as our diapers are). They are pieces of cloth, you use a little water to get them wet. Using warm water is indeed a great difference in comfort, both for parent and baby.

comment How to get a child to stop pretending to choke on foods he doesn't want to eat?
Please have a trained person explain the Heimlich before trying it on people yourself - you're likely to break ribs or worse, and usually there are things you should try before resorting to a Heimlich maneuver - it is a last resort, when the other option is death by suffocation. It is really not meant as a plaything.

comment Are cloth diapers really more environmentally minded than disposables?
+1, but can someone summarise this summary of the summary?

comment How can I get my toddler to eat as well for us as he does at daycare?
@Beofett: thanks for reporting back! As always when discussing human behaviour, every statement seems so "subjective", but reading about experiences really adds weight to an answer. Thanks!

comment How do you handle unsupervised, poorly behaved children in public play areas?
While this is an excellent short term solution (sometimes you have to pick your battles, sometimes all you can do is walk away), you can't always walk away. Teach him while he's young so he'll know when he's older, sometimes you stand up to yourself, sometimes you walk away.

comment Is it bad to use a pacifier?
This is correct, but do note that if they don't use a pacifier, but their thumb instead, this has another drawback: a pacifier can be "given to Santa" - a thumb cannot.
