comment Is it OK for my children to eat solely carbs and fruit, which is what they want
You know, bits, small lumps. For example, my son won't drink orange juice with "Juicy bits" in it. I have to buy the smooth variety. Until I worked this out I just thought he was fussy about orange juice.

Agreed, 10PM is way too late. Try 6:30 - 7:30

comment How long should a 3 year old be sent to his room?
+1 for until your ready. The purpose of the discipline is to give them cool off time, and to teach the kid a life lesson. Make sure they've understood why they've been sent to their room. Remember they have their own internal dialog and will be thinking all sort of dark thoughts. You have to clear all of that up before it gets internalised. Make sure they can tell you why they were sent off. If they won't talk, give them another few minutes to cool off.

comment At what age can a child be left alone in a parked car?
I'd leave a sleeping baby in the car in the drive with the window cracked. Sleep is golden.
