comment How to avoid corporal punishment?
I agree with Mathew. No blame being attached here. But if you genuinely feel like you can't maintain control over yourself, there are anger-management classes that could help you. Goodness knows, if anything is going to test you to your limits, it's your own children. I really do sympathise, but please seek help.

comment Can I help settle my child and make them enjoy nappy changing
Our friends have been using these since their little boy was a baby, and have found them great. I always thought they were for potty-training, and had my doubts about how to take them off when full of poo. But turns out they work well as normal nappies, and can be ripped off easily.

@Mathew Foscarini. Yes "dummy" is the normal word in England.

Our little boy is 2½ and he's hated it from birth. At least now you can reason with/bribe him

comment How can I encourage my toddler to walk and not be carried?
I guess you're right. We are trying to do exactly this, and have been for a while. It's just that- well, sometimes you don't have time to wait out the tantrum because you're pushed for time.
