comment How do I get my child to remember to flush?
@balanced mama: We definitely try to make him realise what he's done. And when he realises we've called him on not doing it, he trots off and does it. However, the interruption tends not to be something that motivates him to learn it. +1 anyway for good stuff.

@Christine Gordon: I love the idea of making the child solve the problem. He loves puzzles and problem solving so I will assuredly try this. Also: Is 'Positive Discipline" a book? +1 (+ more if I could)

Thanks @MegCoates. It's one of the reasons I really love this site. It helps remind me that "I'm not alone dealing with this."

While the opinion is valid for yourself and well thought out, I think that the opinion does not address the question.

Gremlins was the specific film that caused the PG-13 rating to be added in the states.

comment How to get a child to stop pretending to choke on foods he doesn't want to eat?
I should specify.. the mock choking is coughing on the food as if he is trying to act like he's choking but he's not really. It's very obvious to tell that he's not actually choking. Think Tom Hanks in Big eating the Paté
