comment How to inculcate concentration for 5 yr old kid?
I believe this is the start of an answer. My son's class (just turned 6) will start school with a run around the school before settling in for any work that requires concentration. In the teacher's experience (and ours) the exercise settles the kids down a lot.

comment Choosing a surname for child of unmarried couple
Valid point about the laws varying between countries. In Turkey, the child must have the father's surname.

comment What are good strategies to deal with a child getting distracted during meals?
Some problems are ephemeral - you are just trying to get them through a stage in life until their priorities or tastes mature. Somewhat like your question on getting kids to eat raw garlic - perhaps they are just not quite old enough yet.

comment I've taken all of my 13 year old daughter's possessions, and she's still disrespectful
@user75702 - You ask "What is my next step?" and then state that you have spanked your daughter recently. I would say that I am allowed to offer my opinion about spanking. Going by the comments you've left and the original question, you have a very definite view of parenting and discipline. I'm just not sure what you expected to hear.

comment Sun Bathing to get Vitamin D for infants
Keep in mind that there are significant differences between individuals. I'm a pasty red head, my wife is mediterranean. My vitamin D levels are fine whereas hers a very low and she has to take supplements. Our son (who's a lot darker than me) is also lacking in vitamin D. Blood tests are simple and (in Australia) free - so it might be worth getting a baseline test done if you are concerned (liver function, sugar levels, vitamin D, iron, etc...)
