+1 For helmets. Also, this means the parents will need to get helmets too and wear them.

Some argue that those padding (called bumpers) are best avoided to help reduce the risk of SIDS.

Sure. But punishment for not going to the toilet properly. It just seems wrong.

Patience and guidance, yes. But punishment?

Carrot and stick? More specifically "stick"? What do you mean? Punishing a child for not going to the toilet the way you want him/her to? A great way to traumatise the little one.

comment Are there any health risks in earbuds for pre-teen children?
Heavy metal is not the problem, per se. It's the volume. Loud Bachman Turner Overdrive is much more dangerous for the ears than soft Black Sabbath.

I don't think the child is doing it to hurt your feelings. He's still a baby.

comment Five-year-old fever: what's the cure?
Does she have any time to play, to be a kid? Kids need to be kids – having homework in kindergarten is robbing them of valuable time to do that. I'd be angry too.
