Child not allowed to step on stepparent

Q: What is the role of a stepparent in parenting teenage step-children? My 19-year-old stepson moved in with us several months ago and is disrupting our marriage.

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. We have all encouraged him to use words when he's angry, but he doesn't seem to get it. Today he bit a classmate (the second time in a year this has happened) and got sent home. 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 ...
