Welcome to Parenting.SE - Unfortunately without more detail on what your concerns are with the relationship are I'm not sure we can give any advice on how to address them.

comment Help troubled 5 year old boy on 2nd suspension for kindergarten
The time to deal with a problem is before they hurt someone - that is the time for a 'wake-up call' and anything else is too late. Again, the offending child is coming back at some point so the risks to others are identical to irrespective of suspension.

comment Help troubled 5 year old boy on 2nd suspension for kindergarten
@Marc - in that situation (1) the kid who hit my daughter with the Tonka truck has already done it and she's scarred anyway. A suspension after the fact did not prevent it. (2) Kids develop behaviour through repetition. They cannot link their violent action with being excluded and don't learn from it. (3) Since they haven't learned and a suspension is temporary they will probably repeat the behaviour when they return. Result: all you've done is make some other parents feel better by expecting adult reasoning from a child. Nothing has been happened to protect other children.

A child can get suspended from kindergarten? That's a joke, right?

comment “Secret” correspondence with a child
Upvoted - context is everything. Also I wonder if inviting a child into 'secret correspondence' (as safe behaviour) might establish a pattern of behaviour that could be taken advantage of by would-be abusers?

comment “Secret” correspondence with a child
I'm not sure that children have a "right" not to be deceived or misguided do they? In the same way that privacy is a privilege not a right for their own protection. Children are deceived regularly in some way or another whether by lie or by omission and parents would certainly claim it is for the child's benefit.

comment In the USA in the year 2014, does the law forbid children from being out and about without close adult supervision?
You sure that "Is helicopter parenting required by law...?" isn't a legal question? :D

@Joe - you'll have to take that up with babycentre's panel of experts, not me. :)
