comment Anything wrong with eggs and bacon every day for my kids' breakfast?
@StuW - while scientific in presentation atkins is almost entirely in opposition to every evidence-based nutritional study going. Ask the AMA, ADA and NIH... for starters.

comment How do I settle an infant who wants to be carried all the time?
I've had this. Basically the child wants to be held and carried around or they kick and yell. Cuddling them isn't sufficient, you need to be stood up and moving around. It's boring, tiring and makes you look like a lunatic if your neighbours notice! (as mine did...)

comment My wife's ex blocks all kind of contact between her and her daughter's (except a Sunday call), should she be honest about it with the children?
Any alternatives to the obvious one of asserting the children's right to see both their parents via appropriate legal processes will involve putting the kids in the middle of the situation. I've voted to close this since it's unclear as to what the message you want to convey is, even if you could convince your wife to say it were there one.

comment How to deal with others' children who do not respect my authority?
-1 "little you can do without falling foul of some nanny-state regulation" is also incorrect. Supervising adults have a duty of care over those in their charge, removing the aggressor from the situation to protect or prevent further harm to others would be perfectly reasonable, as would placing those who misbehave in time-out. Hitting children is not ok whatever you call it as (a) the evidence shows it doesn't work and (b) despite being hit yourself you do not seem to have learned the lesson that it's wrong.

comment Is it ok to disagree in front of the kids?
I would argue that discussions of mental health issues would quite reasonably fall under "personal attacks" as they could be construed as such by someone not fully immersed in the situation.

comment Is it ok to disagree in front of the kids?
Upvoted. I would suggest rewording the paragraph before the edit, to say something along the lines "once a decision has been made, parents should provide a united front". That would make your intent there more clear.

I think we can safely file that under "I'd discourage them from eating it." but thanks for the feedback.

comment Is it safe for a 2.5 year old toddler to be allowed to plug in the light cord into the wall plug
My children would have been ok plugging things in a 2.5, but I'm in the UK. The UK plug specification has been that way since it was introduced, though there may be plugs that do not meet the standard especially bought in from other countries. The standard for the sockets also has safety protections which have gates to protect the live/neutral from being exposed until the earth is connected... One would think that, given their penchant for litigation, the Americans would have a safer system by now...

comment Is it ok to play with a 10 months old baby in nature?
At the moment this question is quite broad. Is there a specific reason why you feel there should be a problem with taking your child somewhere you'd quite happily go to for example? Knowing this might help us to give you a more useful answer.
