comment my 12 year old is smoking and im not sure how to deal with this
There is absolutely room for change down the line if there is a change in situation, or even if there isn't but truly regrets the choice. The point is only so that he doesn't think he can flip back and forth to get what he wants, playing one parent against the other.

comment Keeping toddler within the rules when an adult member of the household doesn't wish to enforce them?
Excellent answer. It's okay to have different parenting and discipline styles. What's important is that the one always support the other in front of the child. You can disagree and argue all you want when alone. Kids are amazing good at adapting to differences between people. They know who to ask when they want ice cream and who to ask when they want to explore the forest on their own. It's only when an individual parent is inconsistent that they get confused.

comment Explaining Thunder/Lightning to a preschooler
As an engineer, I love details. I always explain as accurately as I can (within the limits of their understanding) because I don't want to give wrong information. However, as I said, in my experience it does not matter how precise you are because his memory and understanding will not go very deep at that age.

comment 5 year old cries every time she is told “no”
Right-On! With young kids it's, "I have to have this or I'm gonna die!" For everything. So comfort, explain, and comfort some more. Then let them learn to deal with it.
