comment What are the pros and cons of opting for an elective C-section?
Looks like a dupe of that linked question - it works for elective or medically necessary.

comment Risks and benefits of natural birth
This depends entirely on the individual. Some find it very painful, some find it very easy to cope with. There are actually more risks with things like epidurals (as they can make it harder for the mother's body to react correctly)

comment Is the “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” by John Lennon song and video suitable for a child?
I'm in the same camp as Little Ms here - I grew up with these sort of things, and was in the Falklands in '82 as a kid - always thought it's better to see and have explained by good parents, than be sheltered and have to figure out for yourself...

comment 6 yo smothers his food in sauce — how can I change this?
user3143, the sodium or calorific bit I'd agree with. The rest is nonsense. I don't like sauces on my food, but I have friends who love them - not because they need them or it is poor quality meat, but because they like the taste. One of my kids loves salad cream, like her mother. The rest of us hate it. It appears to be a non-issue in our household, as regards fitness, health or anything.

At risk of sounding contrary, why not just let him do it? If he enjoys the flavour, just go with it.

comment When will I feel the same attachment for my next child as my firstborn?
As a father of three, I'd have to say you are spot on with this. In saying that, my wife was the same. The second was much easier and less of a voyage of discovery than the first, and the third was almost relaxed the whole way through.

comment Which way is correct to keep your kids on the right path: love or strict discipline?
I'd have to agree with Dariusz - this is almost a non-question, as there are an infinite variety of ways to balance love, reward, punishment, etc., and the arguments as to whether one way is better or worse than another may all have their proponents.
