comment At what age can/should a child be able to clean themselves after bowel movements?
This is a good question. I'm interested in how people will answer.

comment Is “hot saucing” bad parenting?
a_hardin and Adam Clearly you are both decent parents. If you look at the average 4 year old though, you will see that they don't understand much of anything because the average parent is too lazy to talk to them. I am assuming that the kind of parent who would rather soap, spank, or hot sauce a child is going to be one of the average parents.

@Rory I agree with spanking (or crying or hugging them) a child in a situation like you mentioned, but I don't think that is punishment, at least not the way you did it.

Spanking is just as bad as hot saucing or soaping because there is still does not explain to the child why they are being punished. You say that it is only appropriate when a child is small, which makes no sense. How could a small child benefit from being hit? Spanking, like hot saucing and soaping, will breed fear. That is not the goal when punishing a child.

comment What are good ways to begin preparing a child for a new baby?
I have to disagree with the idea of not planting the idea of siblings just because of what-ifs.

comment What are the best cloth diapers for a large baby?
He is almost 21 pounds. Even if his growth drops to the average pound a month, he would be close to 30 by his first birthday.

comment What are your remedies for baby acid reflux?
@Mike The baby was receiving breast milk, so if mom ate chocolate or mint go through the milk.
