Disciplinary plan hinges on parents’ strict adherence

Q: When my 3-year-old son misbehaves, I generally take things away from him and he generally responds well. One lingering problem is that he tends to react physically when he's mad at a classmate instead of talking it out and letting the teachers intervene.

Once home, I fed him lunch and then confined him for the rest of the day to ...

Child needs to cope with irrational fear of sharks

Q: Because he is afraid of sharks, my fourth-grade son does not want to participate in an upcoming school field trip to an aquarium. In all other respects, he is perfectly normal. He's a great student, has lots of friends, and other parents and teachers love him. He doesn't give us or his teachers any problems at all. So should we make him go on this field trip or not? If he doesn't go, he'll have to sit in the principal's office all day long. The only other option is to let him stay home ...
