He'll go when he's ready. Are you reading some books about using the potty to him? I'm sure that helped with our little one.

comment What is a fair way to punish a sibling who unintentionally erases another's Saved Game?
@Dariusz: I'm in the computer science business and one core technique we use is abstraction, eliminating unnecessary details.

I don't even know what any of this means. Perhaps, a stern warning.

comment 7 month old is waking up frequently to be picked up
One obvious approach is to wait until she grows out of it. She's a baby, after all, and needs her parents.

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.

comment Baby started solids and stopped pooing. When should I be worried?
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.

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.
