comment Should a 5 year old excuse themselves after farting?
I think that would still apply (the fact that it's a smell and not a noise doesn't change the fact that it's "socially unacceptable" and therefore to be ignored). (That said, I disagree on the 'socially unacceptable', but I'm happy to upvote as it's a good answer if you do feel that way.)

I feel like this would be a better answer without some of the personal information and rather extreme reference to violence. It's entirely reasonable and a good answer at its heart, but you just don't need the context to convey what you mean here.

comment Why my 12 months baby bites herself?
It's not a matter of being a masochist. Small amounts of pain are a way of centering yourself; overriding other stimuli. Think of the classic example of a person hyperventilating and someone slapping them to make them stop. Biting herself (not too hard) gives her a way to focus on that stimulation rather than the stressful social situation or whatever that she's in.

comment Toddler Can't Turnover In Bed
If your 3.5 yo is anything similar to mine, staying under blankets at all is unusual. We make sure ours wears warm PJs to compensate.

comment Baby sleep associations - how important are they?
@MiniMum I can't tell from the limited view I get from this question, but you might want to look at some of the literature on attachment parenting. There are ways to manage more sleep and to help the baby learn to sleep, even while cosleeping. The Attachment Parenting International site has some strategies, for example.
