comment When is corporal punishment abuse, really?
What's always interesting to me is where does this end? If you believe that pain is an acceptable, why is hitting your spouse considered wrong as long as it is also "delivered in a loving way"? Why is it not okay for someone to knock down and kick someone who queue jumps? In essence, why is it only okay when it's a child? Maybe it's just my need for simplicity, but I'd really have a hard time justifying to my daughter that it's not okay for her to push another child, but it's fine for me to hold her down and hit her.

comment How to get 4 year old to stick up for himself but not turn into a bully?
@anongoodnurse I've tweaked the question slightly to make it look more like an answer than a question. Kippie, if you don't like the edit, feel free to revert or edit further.

+1: Great answer. A good line in this situation: "I know your boy's only little, but I can't really just sit here and watch my son get hit, he doesn't like it." There's not really a valid comeback to this.

I think this answer could be improved by what influenced you to be a stay-at-home dad. Clearly, Anon's having doubts that you didn't, how did you cope with the issues that she's facing?

comment What should we do when our 15 year old wants sex with his 13 year old girlfriend?
@Danililoko Sure, but that's technically true of all parenting. You can't stop him getting high, stealing a car and running over the neighbour's dog, but you can do your best not to get Fido killed.

comment How do I dissuade my three-year-old from saying he doesn't like a parent?
@anongoodnurse "Working as a team" is synonymous in this case with "emphatic united front". The symptoms they've focused on seemed on the normal end of that spectrum, though. "I don't like you" and pushing you away would be abusive if it was done between adults. If I got a comment or an edit from the OP saying "He's doing <really bad thing>", that would be different, but "doesn't like, want, or love the parent, and commands the parent to go away", is exactly the normal behaviour that link refers to.

+1 For "I am become Death", once heard, never forgotten. Wait till you actually tend to their demands and they immediately switch it off; you will never trust them again.

comment Why are women taught to relax as much as possible during childbirth?
@Jax Listen, the last time I'm telling my wife to relax is when she's heavily armed.
