comment What is a positive way to handle a boy who acts like a girl?
I would love to know how you define a "strong male role model" then. Because "scientist", "doctor" and "lawyer" are typically professions that have no correlation with "tough guy who drinks beer and loves football". In spite of the high esteem that these professions hold in the real, grownup world.

comment My son is 8 and is still soiling his pants and doesn't care
We're in the same boat you are, in a way. This and several other reasons were why we took our son to see a psychologist. It turns out he has Asperger's. I wish you luck in your own assessment.

comment How can I get my 12-year old physically active or into sports when he's never been?
+1 because as a dyed-in-the-wool geek, I have always been more interested in "practical" kinds of exercise than I have been in dying of boredom doing repetitive exercises in a gym. I liked cross-country skiing as a kid, rowing was somewhat practical, but today the thing I do the most is cycling. For a long time, the way I got around was on a bike. Now, I bike the 25km into work as often as I can. Because I can. :)

comment How do I convince a stubborn 8 year old that the parents are supposed to be in charge?
Hi, I can see that you're new here. And also not a parent. You give no useful examples of techniques to accomplish the goal you set. Nor do you remember the techniques your parents used. Probably because you had no idea what the theory was behind their techniques. Because you provided no useful advice, only moralizing, I've downvoted you.

comment What is a positive way to handle a boy who acts like a girl?
Sorry, boys who act like girls (especially in our culture, which reallyreallyreally discourages it, meaning that there are lots of incentives not to act this way, and thus demonstrates a strong willingness to continue this behaviour, as opposed to a passing fancy) in every way is pretty much the definition of gender dysphoria. That, and not being happy with being the gender you are. Again, only time will tell. The child is only 3.

No. Google George Rekers and his failed methods on the subject of "sissy boys". Usually they included a boatload of parental abuse too. Anderson Cooper did a story on him too.

Lots of experience with this. Upvoted.

comment Doing good things in the wrong way
Oh, my, is this what my future looks like? So, you're offering advice based on experience then? Lots of parents-to-be do that. And then they find out what it's really like, and stop pretending they know anything at all. Downvoted.

comment My son is 5 years old and sexually active
This isn't sexuality. This is abuse. Whether he's acting out the ways he's been abused or not, he's now raping other kids. Sex involves consent. Rape involves force.

comment How can I prep my child for an IQ test?
I want to ask: who's the overachiever? Mom, or the child? One of my friends has an IQ of 190, but hasn't really had either the motivation or the interest to make much of anything of her life, much to the consternation of her parents. That said, greatness doesn't come from doing well in school. It comes from wanting to go out and change the world, regardless of your grades.
