comment How can you deal with tantrums without spanking?
I'm afraid I disagree there @Christine - at 10 they are aware enough to know that the punishment is because of what they did, and how to improve their behaviour to avoid that punishment in future. Discipline is definitely not bullying.

comment How do you teach morals and values in non-religious households?
@balanced - totally agree. My answer was about why households teach good ethical lessons. The end result of good ethical lessons should be happiness and kindness, I would just rather see it come from the individual rather than from some outside influence.

comment How to encourage toddler to not throw food?
At that age they do not have internal motivation @Carmi - you need to first encourage the behaviour, then as they get older reward self-motivation.

comment How can I get my toddler to eat as well for us as he does at daycare?
Excellent news - I tend to believe that most things are phases that just need to be endured as best you can while doing the right thing :-)
