comment How can I encourage my 5-year-old to learn to swim?
I'm probably strong enough, but I'm not a great swimmer... More of a I can survive in the water swimmer.

comment How to avoid corporal punishment?
At five and two, they really should be going to bed pretty close together anyway, so I would agree that video games and tv are a little to exciting for that time of day.

comment Should we switch from cloth to disposable diapers?
The -1 is for "I don't a know single baby that has not had a diaper rash." I don't either, but I haven't ever had a doctor tell me that a rash was a bacterial infection, either. I don't think that dismissing what could be a serious medical concern is particularly helpful. As a side note, my underwear preferences would be heavily biased against cotton if I got blisters on my penis every time I wore cotton underwear.

comment Should we switch from cloth to disposable diapers?
There is also a school of thought which claims that cloth diapers are better because they are less absorbent--the idea being that a less comfortable diaper encourages potty training. But in any case, I would tend to agree that even if disposable diapers are evil, penis blisters are more evil. I would be very hesitant to continue experimenting... what if instead of a detergent that he's less allergic to, you find one he's even more allergic to?

comment Why is my baby crying?
+1 for Zombies. I do think hobos should be taken off the list, though. One month olds LOVE hobos, the rocking motion of the train is very soothing.

comment How can we discipline a strong-willed, misbehaving 5 year-old?
-1 for considering hurting animals and running away in parking lots to be normal 5 year old behaviors. I'm not an expert on childhood behavior, but these are not behaviors that I see exhibited by the 4 and 5 year olds on my sons T-Ball team or among his classmates. To the contrary, if a parent brings a puppy around the group, the children usually behave with exaggerated care. I've never seen a kid run away from his parents in a parking lot. These could be serious problem behaviors, and the poster should talk to a professional.

I'll defer to Marie's answer.
