You just say "help" but what is your actual question to us that you want us to answer?

comment Is it safe to blow on a baby's face?
I like how you still managed to get a joking pout into your answer though. Your original use of knottage made me laugh but I have to say Joe has a point if your answer is intended to be serious.

@BBM are you describing your son, or mine??! Eerie.

comment How can I teach my 5yo son to respect authority?
I haven't accepted this (or any) answer yet because I don't feel ready to accept the reality it would imply. I awarded a bounty instead because this answer is extremely helpful in determining the root cause of the situation.

comment How can we discipline our toddler?
Update, three years later: Timeouts don't work except in very specific circumstances (see my comment to this answer). It's pretty much as @BBM describes: mostly ineffective and tiring.

comment Should I worried about my son's development? Or maybe my son's right brain is dominant?
Without going into the details you describe, keep in mind that all children are different. The other kid may be ahead right now but in half a year it can be other way round. Don't compare with others; there are a million factors that contribute to differences. Just look at each child separately. If your son is happy and healthy, that's great!
