comment Should I force activities on my child?
That sounds terrible. Rather than enjoying the sport for the pure enjoyment of the sport, they will do it purely for the reward. Take away the reward, and they won't want to do it anymore.

Ensuring that baby gets enough (mother's) milk to avoid dehydration is important. Also helps get the poo going.

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

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.

comment When can I start to let our son play with his friends unattended?
Is your yard fenced? Ours isn't, and our 2 year old has a tendency of wandering off if you don't keep an eye on her.

comment Is it worth sending a kid to a Montessori school?
I don't understand what "this" refers to in the last sentence, and thus I don't really understand what your question is. Is it about the cost of Montessori schools?
