comment Assertiveness for 6-year-olds
Your 3 steps match ours amazingly closely. It works very well. My eldest has had to go to 3 once. The headmaster tried to blame him, but after we went through the questions it was obvious even to her that she was pointing the finger at the wrong person

comment My step daughter shook my baby
5 minutes is sort of irrelevant. Certainly in the UK if you leave a 14 year old in charge it may be fine, but if something happens you are considered to be at fault, as it was your decision to leave them with the 14 year old. You need to educate a child in how to look after a baby, and yes, this includes 'Don't shake the baby'

comment My 2 years old son supervises me after asking me to do something for him, does this suggest lack of trust?
At this age, you should not be worried about indicators of trust. Just ensure your child has reason to trust you. You child will trust you implicitly unless you are inconsistent and break their trust.

comment What are the effective durations of punishment at various ages?
As an aside, one of my kids insisted his Grandpa have a time out after inadvertently swearing once. Grandpa was delighted with his 64 minute peace and quiet on the naughty step reading a paper :-)

comment How can I help reunite my mother and little brother?
This doesn't actually answer the question. The question shows why your second paragraph isn't possible. And your final sentence doesn't help at all.
