comment What do you do when your child's Christmas Wishlist is full of things you cannot get her?
Santa is a big lie in the first place. If a parent has a desire not to poke a hole into the Christmas myth then lies are part of the game.

comment How to encourage our guest's kids to clean up the room from toys before leaving?
That would be ridiculous, but it does happen in many homes!

I agree @TorbenGundtofte-Bruun, some may not think that way, I just thought it was important to say as none of the answers brought it up.

comment My child is constantly hungry. How do I keep her feeling fuller?
@balancedmama, just a suggestion but you could ask a question on the cooking stack about good ways to add healthy fats. I'll answer there too ;)

comment My 8 year old son won't fall asleep
I try to avoid it myself when possible, it's too often a way to express anger than show the right way to go, but sometimes unavoidable.

comment My 8 year old son won't fall asleep
I agree with @ChristineGordon, this isn't defiance. He's not screaming and being disruptive, he just isn't tired or something is keeping him awake.

comment My 8 year old son won't fall asleep
@ChristineGordon, I didn't phrase it the best so I can see why you are confused. I've edited to add that punishment (or any attention really) at the time is the problem. Any attention whether positive or negative when he's awake at night is positive reinforcement of the behavior.

comment How to avoid association of child's room with time-outs?
Well if the goal is to get him to change his behavior and it works then great.
