comment What can I do to increase the chance that my children will talk to me when disturbed?
@DanBeale Huh. I don't see any mention of filters, just of monitoring. I disagree that installing filters leads directly to I cannot discuss this with my parents - at least the connection isn't clear to me. But it's a very interesting insight, I'd suggest you add an answer showing the link with further detail, and providing suggestions on how to prevent filters from limiting discussion.

@DanBeale I don't understand your comment. What rule makes it harder for young children to come and talk that is off topic?

comment How to encourage a 2 year old toddler to complete colouring a sketch?
@Dronz I see your point now, but would expect a good parent or teacher to approach all interactions with children genuinely and without pressure. I suppose that's the subject of an entirely different question, though.

comment How to encourage a 2 year old toddler to complete colouring a sketch?
@Dronz I'm not sure what you're saying. If I interact with a child in this way I'm not lying, nor am I telling them that they have to do things in a certain way. You seem to have a strong opinion about the subject, though, so perhaps you can provide an alternative answer to this question?

comment How to address my son’s fear of mostly passive objects, namely smoke detectors
@MarchHo there are no guarantees, however a dual detection smoke detector will almost certainly have a lower false alarm rate than a single detection, so this may, in fact, resolve the problem if it is a bad detector, as well as if it was due to a single event such as a bug as the OP suggests. But if they haven't found the actual reason, then replacing the detector isn't a bad choice, and may alleviate his child's fears, so it might be a worthwhile choice. Detectors should be replaced every decade anyway.
