comment How to remove Toddler's attraction for iPhone /iPad?
I'm assuming your child hasn't tried to find out if iPhone or iPad can float in the bath yet?

comment Changing a child's name
Who says Thomas means 'twin'? Can you provide a citation? As far as I recall, it's a biblical name.

comment How do you get a child to eat?
Once children can speak, they can tell you 'I don't want that much' but until they can, they either protest noisily, don't eat the food (through protest) or only eat some of it.

Spot on with the room invasion point - really important to agree and respect boundaries.

@pramodc84: are you serious? That article recommends using threats and violence - on children?

Notting Hill may be a bit too classy/romancey to be an effective analogy IMO.

Your analogy makes pornography out as 'weird' - but worldwide sales figures would disagree.

comment When your child says something embarrassing in public… how do you deal with it?
Thanks for the detailed response. I guess I can already see that the distraction technique failed here (a Witch being more interesting than a Dragon that day!) and so rational reasoning prevailed. His grandmother just says "Oh no it isn't" which descends into a pantomime act, but I guess that moves away from the embarrassing statement.

comment Programming with a baby
Programming is best done with a computer. While a baby has copious I/O and loud audio, the voice recognition-based user interface mechanism takes up to 18 months activate although you may get somewhere with gesture-based input :o)

Perhaps you're really really good at reading the bedtime stories and they're making you feel sleepy too :o)
