'Doctor' puts children on right path

William Meyer, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Duke University, objects to a recent column of mine in which I recommended that parents move a toddler out of their bed by telling him that "the doctor" said he can't sleep with them any longer (a second child is on the way). In a letter to the editor of the Raleigh News and Observer, Meyer says that this is a lie and "sets up the child to feel an unwarranted anger" toward health-care professionals.

Children should be allowed to dream

Q: Our 16-year-old son is talking of going to a local community college after high school and living with one of his friends. He says he needs to find a job soon so he can prove to his friend's mom that he is hard-working. I was so shocked I just listened and haven't said how I feel about this whole thing. What would you say to this obviously delusional teen about his grand plans?

Column: Kids should pick own hobbies

Through my website, a parent recently asked if children who don't want to continue piano lessons should be forced to stay the course regardless. I answered that I don't approve, generally, of forcing children into activities they don't want to be in. Making a child continue in an activity he doesn't enjoy makes it less likely he will ever again express interest in anything for fear of being forced to continue if he discovers he doesn't like it. Where optional activities are concerned, childhood should be a time of fairly free-form experimentation.
