@JessicaBrown The dangling carrot is what you describe; carrot and stick does typically mean a stick as in a switch.

comment Do some baby's eyes produce water more than others?
Even in your new form the question was very open ended and essentially a poll of other people's experience. That format doesn't tend to work well on these Q/A sites so I edited it to ask a more concrete/closed-form question that has a right answer. If I didn't quite capture your specific question, please edit again.

comment 4 year old is wetting the bed a year after finishing potty training
Hello, Tiffany, and welcome to parenting.se! Answers that are substantially just a link are not ideal because it's hard to tell at a glance what they're about and the link may stop working in the future. You should summarize or quote a relevant portion of the article and include that too.

I don't think you should remove the link. Not only did I have to dig in to the edit history to check it out, but she disclosed it's her product and it's topical. If you really think the post is unacceptable, just delete it.
