comment How can we get our 5 year old to behave during eating, without us nagging all the time?
@DaveDev - 30+ year old with 2 kids of my own here. My parents still have no idea :) (though I largely replaced other distractions with StackExchange/PC/smartphone)

comment How do I handle a 10 year old girl “in love”?
-100 for recommending chick flics or Disney movies as example of how romantic love SHOULD be.

Sorry, -1. As professional developer, there's nothing worse that someone who thinks golfing is a positive thing; and as someone who taught programming, golfing is way beyond what a beginner should be exposed to.

comment How to get a 17 year old son to realize that laundry is not that hard to do and to do it on a regular basis?
Get him a gf. Most men exibit wonders of cleaning acumen when a girl they are into is about to visit the room. Pay the gf $10 to off-handedly mention how her little brother is wonderful because he does his own laundry. Done.

comment 6 yo smothers his food in sauce — how can I change this?
@corsiKa - depends on the condiment and the quality of meat and the amount, based on my practical experience. Too much Ketchup and your meat flavor disappears. May be worth asking on cooking.SE?

@DavidRicherby - this is Parenting SE, not Environmentalist SE. Some of us value teaching kids independence, among other things. It's a perfectly valid answer, so no reason to downvote it.

My kids got introduced to the idea of "condiment" at ~3-4 YO and had no issue understanding that. +1

@Snowman, I would probably post your comment as a question - I'm struggling with the same problem as yourself.

comment 6 yo smothers his food in sauce — how can I change this?
@RoryAlsop - another reason was alluded to by the OP. As my father taught me, "If you need condiments on your meat, it was a poor quality meat. And if you have good quality meat, don't ruin the natural flavor with condiments!"

@RoryAlsop - because it can be harmful, both at the moment, and even more so as acquired habit in the future. Many sauces aren't very healthy for you (high sodium content, if nothing else). Some others are simply poor nutrition with tons of calories (Ranch, I'm looking at you!)
