comment Which is the best option electric or a manual breast pump and how to choose the best one
Our 2 cents - electric pumps all the way, and dualies are best (both breasts at the same time, much more efficient)

comment how to tackle 6.5 years old misbehaving boy?
What does "respecting" authority mean? Does it mean obeying anyone who orders you around (or appears to be powerful or bigger than you) without question or hesitation? Doesn't sound very good to me. You're right, our job is not to be liked, loved, or be their friend. Our job is to love THEM, and treat them like humans, not servants, monkeys, or dogs.

-1 following the parent promptly and without question, -1 "applying punishment", -1 you aren't teaching your child self-control, you're teaching them to obey you, and eventually, quite possibly, hate you. However, consistent and predictable is an excellent point, and +1 for not punishing feelings.

My answer completely ignored the boy's 'side', his thoughts and reasons. Excellent point Dave.

I should add, 'do the best you can' may mean getting professional help. You shouldn't completely ignore the past. If you know you are violent with children, that needs to stop and/or you need to find someone else to look after your kids.

Even if your child remembers every bad thing that you've done, at least you can demonstrate the ability to improve. Don't worry about the past. Focus on the present, and do the best you can.

comment Baby always rolling over and ending up sleeping on his stomach, is it dangerous?
@deworde your link does not state that SIDS is not suffocation. It is an unknown. So we can say 'the cause is not identified as suffocation because it is unknown' but from your reference we cannot say 'the cause is not suffocation'. Of course, I'm not saying it is suffocation.

comment How to know whether the baby has had her fill while breastfeeding?
My wife indicated that it was clear when the baby had stopped extracting milk, and was instead sucking without much effect. At that point she felt she could stop feeding if necessary (although often didn't if she was comfortable and the baby was happy).

comment How can I get my 4 year old to clean up toys without a battle?
@BBM that's true, however I think cleaning up tools is actually a bit different. First, you usually don't have an endless supply of crappy tools strewn about because nobody really uses them. You usually have a relatively smaller number of useful tools with a particular purpose and a particular home. Keeping organized while using tools is a pleasing part of the process of doing real work, and it is constantly demonstrated (hopefully!) by the parents. How complex and overwhelming is it to put a vacuum away?
