Well if the goal is to get him to change his behavior and it works then great.

comment Is it ok to be on diet while pregnant?
+1 for a great comment @balancedmama, you're right that people often mistake thirst for hunger, often drinking a tall glass of water will get rid of hunger pangs. Drinking lots of water helps reduce constipation, which is also a problem for many women in pregnancy.

We need even more of that! There are so many kids who need that sort of help.

comment How can I motivate my child who doesn't care about rewards?
As a parent I've got a 3 year old and a 9 month old. I spent a couple years as a not very good camp councilor and learned a lot from the experience! Professionally I'm in IT. I take it you're a teacher from your post. Well done, we need more of you!

comment Can you detect peanut allergies in babies from kissing on the cheek?
I really don't think this is a wise idea. Peanut allergies are potentially life threatening, if you suspect your child is allergic then take him to a specialist. DO NOT follow this advice!
