Don't make shy kids center of attention

Q: Our 32-month-old daughter always has been outgoing and loves to be around people - until recently, that is. All of a sudden she has started lowering her head when we get together with people she doesn't see very often and will refuse to say hi or be friendly. Is it reasonable to expect that she say hello? At what age should we start disciplining this behavior?

'Because I said so' is good enough

While wandering through various Internet parenting sites the other day, I came across a professional who advises parents to never say, "Because I said so."

My body may be aging, but my sense of smell is excellent.
