comment How do I put my child in time-out when we're in public?
+1 to everything you said except the "count to 3" part. If I tell my toddler to (not) do something, and I know she's heard and understood me but still doesn't obey, she's already in trouble. My thinking is that there are plenty of situations where a 3 count could be the difference between life or injury/damage/death; and I don't want my little one to ever think she can wait to obey me, for her sake.

comment How to get my sister to use correct spelling while typing on computer?
I had a similar experience with my mother, who believed that punctuation is completely optional in informal mediums. I am a web developer; she needed a website. I told her I'll build her a website (for free) only if she starts using punctuation correctly on Facebook (which she often uses to promote her business). Since I laid out my terms she's started using punctuation properly and will be getting her free website soon.

Kindergarten? Kindergarten has kids who are 5-6 years old (at least in the US).

What about taking L-Arginine and L-Lysine supplements in addition to Zinc (for men)?

comment We're looking to get pregnant - what can we do to optimize our chances?
+1. While I do think this question has nothing to do with parenting it is still a great question; and is a vital step in becoming a parent (sans-adoption, of course).
