    comment Does a child need to apologize and how should I react while it does not?
    I'm with you on everything here except for this part: "If he is in his room while you are eating and misses dinner, he goes hungry for the evening." - IMO, meals are one of those key things that should not be withheld as a punishment. Delayed until they are calm and ready to eat maybe, but never withheld entirely.

    Please at least correct the spelling of 'habits'... It looks like several other of my 'too minor' suggestions were incorporated anyways...

    comment Help With Sleep Training
    Could be related to temperature changes being away from your body heat. It seems pretty normal to me - our kids were similar at that age; just make sure they're warm and it'll help the transition away from being carried.
