comment How do you ween a toddler off of breastfeeding?
Your answer was very complete dealing with different times during the day. We too substituted more bottle/sippy cup in lieu. Dad doing the bedtime routine was very helpful too.

Things that help relax and calm children before bed help with the winding down process. Lavender in the bath is good too.

Juice will rot teeth. Milk can go sour. Water doesn't help with toilet training later.

comment When is physical punishment appropriate?
This is a good question. Due to its controversy, I don't think people will answer it honestly. It is not publicly acceptable to support spanking your child, yet people still do. I'd leave it here. If people think it is not appropriate for the site, they can down-vote it. It won't get the same exposure on meta.

comment Is my 7-year-old child sleeping too much?
This is a medical question (which of course parents need to be aware of) but might not be for this forum. My son, same age, slept alot and had trouble getting up in the morning. He was tested for sleep apnea and is about to get his tonsils out. Your situation might be different. Not sure if this should be a comment or an answer to your question.
