comment Why are parents so concerned about profanity around their children?
+3 for "used mainly when stupid people have run out of the right words to say". (+1 for the rest... Good answer).

comment When should I allow a child to swear?
@Shantali: I guess when he say 18, he really means "when the child is legally independent, and the parents does not really have the rights to tell them what to do".

comment How do you respond to minor injuries?
Good point. With our youngest son (2yrs), we are actually a bit conserned if he's already a bit too tough, but that is not because how we have dealt with him - he just seems to cope with pain better than most kids his age. It has made us be very aware on how he's crying, and distinguish between his cry when actually hurt (requires comforting) or cry because he doesn't get his way (quite common).

revised Why should children be rewarded for good behaviour?
Fixed wrong use of word "your". Meaning in this text is "You are", and short form of that is "You're", not "your".

@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun: I guess the why is answerd by the 3 last words: "... and it worked!"

comment Should I monitor my child's internet usage?
@Doug: The world might not be that different. The difference is that the world is closer to your home, and potential "predators" are closer and larger in numbers.

comment Advice for carrying out the “Stay in Bed” technique with our 2-year-old
@Urbycoz: Our 2-year old son is like your son not very eager to sleep in our bed. But we sometimes do take him to our bed when he wakes up, and then takes him back after a little while. Then he tends to go to sleep when going back - maybe he realizes it's better in his bed after all or something... We have actually seen that he climbs out of our bed and into his bedroom, wanting to get into his own bed!

comment Will a 12-18 month old understand a baby is on the way?
He would not understand that a baby is on the way, but he will understand that something is going on, and even though he doesn't understand exactly what you tell him right away, he will understand and eventually accept more than if you don't tell him anything.

comment Will a 12-18 month old understand a baby is on the way?
Yes! Although she would perhaps not understand exactly what was going on, I think it's important to prepare them for something is going to happen. It is not easy to know how much they understand, but my experience is that the more they're told, the more they actually understand eventually.
