comment What is the most appropriate way to address contrarianism in a 4-year-old?
that's a slightly different kind of choice, and not what I'd go to first, but yes, you can end up there

comment How do you handle unsupervised, poorly behaved children in public play areas?
There's some good content in here, but "try to baby their brats when they should spank them" is over the top. Many very good parents never spank, as I'm sure you know. Not all children who misbehave in public (especially exciting areas with lots of noisy children and scarce common resources) are brats, as I'm sure you know.

comment Pros/Cons: Children Picking Their Own Punishments
the word punishment covers a lot of ground. Sometimes going to your room or time out isn't a punishment (to make you feel bad or to hurt you) but a chance to calm down. Sometimes paying for the thing you broke or apologizing isn't a punishment but a way to make things right. For a child to choose one of these options is very different than deciding how many times they should get hit or which toy they will lose access to for a week. You need to edit your question to make it clearer what you're considering.

comment How can I get my son to keep time during school time?
@Erica if the OP comments on or edits their question to include why keeping time is important, whether the work is getting done, why the schedule is being followed and other things that were asked in comments then I can include some "keeping to the schedule" content. I assure you this is not a hostile answer in any way. I've checked back a few times for updates from the OP but there are none. It's hard to know what to include without those extra details.

comment Do children start believing in fairies and magic after being read from a book? If yes, then how to respond to “but the book says it is true”?
Just add a little commentary when you read it. He flew in the air! That's impossible! What a funny made-up-story this is!
