comment 3 year old gets bullied all the time
@DaveClarke The spirit of your comment is well intentioned, and I agree on the effect it would have. But if a person was reasonable enough to agree to watch the video, they wouldn't be a bully to begin with. Such a suggestion would more likely incite anger and probably a tirade and exit than an effective rehabilitation.

comment Is it really that bad to get water in an infant's ear?
@DaveClarke With that tidbit, it doesn't change the fact that water + baby's ear = infection, nor does it offer a solution. Ancillary precision doesn't help solve the problem.

comment Is it really that bad to get water in an infant's ear?
@DaveClarke That's semantics. Baby gets water in the ear, baby gets an ear infection. When the baby screaming in the middle of the night and pulling at their ears, there will be little comfort in knowing that it wasn't the water.

I can't understand how anything involving vaseline and a baby's ear could be anything but bad. You'll never get it all out.

comment Can temper tantrums indicate a behavior problem?
@Beofett I missed this reply: LOLOL "You were right. BUT I WAS RIGHTER!" Of course I kid (= It sounds like you have a solid handle on it and I'm glad it's working out. Truly, tho... "normal" is really a BS adjective when talking about the human experience. Normal is eating, breathing and sleeping. Everything else is subjective.

Your characterization of "see what tv does?" is inaccurate. I'm no TV apologist, not by any stretch... (I have a television device but no television input signal. It's basically a giant monitor for a pc) but your observation is more akin to someone that's never ever had a 32oz soda from QuikTrip suddenly being able to have one. ANYONE, especially children, that never observes regular television would behave differently after being jacked in to it for a random hour of the sugary insipid things that are out there for children.

comment Bedtime vs amount of sleep?
AND... it's a known fact that a screen of any type will go tricking your brain into believing the sun is still up. You can stare at a monitor playing The Facebooks without getting sleepy waay longer than you could sit and read a book by lamp light (not overhead light) or knit a sweater or chisel. with a 10pm internet curfew, she'll drop off much more readily. She'll say it's boredom, when the reality is that it just allows her brain to go "oh hey look. the sun is like... GONE."

comment What makes a kid turn bully, and how to prevent him from turning into a bully?
This is an excellent question. So many times you hear "how do i deal with being bullied" but I think this is the first time I've seen someone ask about such upline preemptive measures from this angle.
