    comment How can 7-year old defend himself when toddler is hitting?
    Absolutely: "If another's parenting style allows their child to hurt mine, then, as a matter of defending my child, I will step in immediately and stop any further damage."

    comment How can 7-year old defend himself when toddler is hitting?
    +1 "Her daughter doesn't like having her hand restrained? Does she think perhaps your son enjoys being hit?"

    comment How can 7-year old defend himself when toddler is hitting?
    I'm sorry, but I lost it when I got to "my friend isn't happy with this as she doesn't want people to touch her child". This is a ridiculous double standard (the toddler is allowed to hit, but your son isn't allowed to stop her?) Your son is absolutely, amazingly understanding and patient to have put up with this treatment from her and not lashed out.

    comment When should a toddler stop having problems with personal pronouns?
    Agree, it changes all the time. My now 5 yr old has decided he likes referring to himself in the 3rd person (like The Rock, even though he's never seen him)

    comment Why do kisses stop a child from hurting?
    On your downside (hurt butt/feet/etc)- we've handled that by kissing our hands, then "blowing" the kiss onto that area. (Edit - I see that's already covered in the answers below :))

    comment How to handle my baby boy urinating in bath?
    It might be cold at first before the water warms up - if it's a concern because of a young infant, you can always start the water first to warm it up...

    comment When do baby teeth start falling out?
    Sounds right to me; there's definitely a lot of variation - mine didn't start until 7, and I still had one left at 22.
