comment When should a child see Star Wars: A New Hope
I like the question and I'll upvote if it's reworded, as it stands it's vague. There are similar TV show questions already here that would give a good format for rewording like the Doctor Who or Terrorism questions

comment When should a child see Star Wars: A New Hope
+1 for not jamming it down their throats, our children may come from us but that doesn't mean they will like the same things we do.

comment What are some fun (no TV or computer) activities that a 2 year old and a 4 year old would enjoy together?
+1 Very true, my sons do the same. The oldest is the leader and the youngest only wants to do what the older is doing, and building blocks is the best example.

comment What are the pros and cons of using a nanny-cam?
Agreed with cabbey my state has strict laws on recording of people over phones and in homes, not others in the US do. You'd best talk to a lawyer about that. Regardless, the video in that site looks very staged, I saw a few edits that showed me things were not the way they appeared

I love the gardening part, though I never got my oldest to understand the difference so I just give him a spare area to dig in - that keeps HIM amused. Not so much for the youngest though.

comment How can I potty train my 4 year old daughter?
When she says she doesn't like it anymore, do you know why? Confronting the fear usually means really making sure the kids understand what they are afraid of, whenever you can get there which is sadly not always the case.

comment What should parents consider when selecting a pacifier?
These are the criteria I used to make my selection. And buy multiples, I have no idea how but these things disappear like socks and pens!!

comment How young is too young to start wearing makeup?
+1 This says it all to me, it's all about what you as a parent feel is right. Every child is different.

comment How can I encourage my 2 year old to drink milk from a sippy/drinking cup?
We've used straw cups and sippy cups with success in transition, it was good to mix them up and if you find ones with a slightly tight fit with the straw you won't get much spillage with the inevitable tossing of the cup.

comment Can you effectively influence the behavior of a 6 month old?
This would be my tactic, I've found that my kids respond to actions that I respond to, if I find it funny or act in an approving manner I will more than likely see that behavior again. If I ignore it, then it lessens the chance of that behavior repeating. Raspberries during eating are minor, you'll have larger items coming once mobility arrives.

comment Should I monitor my child's internet usage?
I like the decreasing supervision, as to logging I don't see a problem with that. You can always just review the sites they are going to, not the individual pages - so you at least know where they are going.

comment Should I monitor my child's internet usage?
It's easy for us, we have two computers that my son could use. One is basically the main home machine, that I mainly use but its downstairs in the "office" and no one is allowed there unsupervised. Second computer is my wife's laptop that she uses a lot - we allow it to be used since it's generally in the room we are in so there is supervision. I don't see this changing for a long while.
