comment How can we ask our 22-year-old son to leave?
I think this is a terrible answer. Buy him off? No. It is time to kick him out.

comment How can I encourage 5 year old to kick the ball?
I think this a mountain out of a molehill situation. Unless there is some reason that she really needs to kick a ball, I'd just let it go.

comment How old really is my child?
I know this wasn't specifically asked, but I would also be careful as she gets older with age cutoffs for school. If she just barely makes the cutoff I would seriously consider waiting and starting a year later

comment My son is 8 and is still soiling his pants and doesn't care
Does he do this at school, or just at home? Unless there is a physical reason, a doctor won't be much help. A counselor would be a better bet

comment How do I stop yawning so much when I'm reading bedtime stories to my kids?
Whether you feel tired or not, if you have kids you are probably operating on some sort of sleep debt. Beyond that, the accepted answer is a great one.

comment Is a Do-It-Yourself baby monitor a bad idea?
Do you have a cordless land-line phone system in your house? If so, it probably has an intercom/room monitor feature on it and you have a zero cost audio system already. Video monitor is, IMHO, completely unnecessary.
