comment How can you deal with tantrums without spanking?
Personal note on brussel sprouts. They make me sick. As a kid I was told to eat them. I would throw them up. Pay attention - sometimes the kid's food preferences have a real reason behind them and you shouldn't be pushing them.

comment How can you deal with tantrums without spanking?
If you keep a log, it is amazing how often meltdowns (for both parents and kids) are correlated with sleep schedules. As for the terrible twos, I've heard that that the kid is learning to assert their independence and control. I want that cup. I want that spoon. I want to eat what I decide. They don't always go through this phase at 2, and anecdotally the later they reach this stage, the worse it is.
