comment How can firearms be secured from children?
+1 fantastic and reasonable answer. children have to learn to live in the real world which includes guns, knives, water, rusty nails, broken glass, cars, germs, and a host of other potentially lethal objects.

comment Is it alright to use corporal punishment on children?
Be careful about taking your personal situation and making a generalization based on it. One person who experienced abuse under the guise of "spanking" will have a very different view of corporal punishment than someone who was calmly and and lovingly disciplined by a parent who remained in full control of his or her emotions the entire time.

comment What are some good strategies for preventing Diaper Rash?
Allowing the area to dry completely between diaperings helps a lot also. Also avoid using baby wipes that are perfumed.

comment How can I help my child develop social intelligence?
What you are asking is how to teach a child perception, self-control, and communication. Lumping those together under the umbrella of "social intelligence" is not going to elicit a good answer.

comment When do kids usually stop believing in Santa Claus?
I never understood the purpose of teaching children that Santa Claus is a real person who flies around in a sleigh and brings presents on Christmas. If nothing else, it teaches kids that their parents are liars.

comment How can you deal with tantrums without spanking?
If we were talking about an infant I would agree with you. But in this case, the child is 2 years old and plenty capable of self-control. I reiterate that ignoring the behavior by taking the child outside to "get it all out" is not practical if there are extenuating circumstances like a thunderstorm. It also teaches the child that he can control his parents and the situation by throwing a tantrum.
