How could we help our children resist today's evil cultural messages?

How could we  help our children resist today's evil cultural messages?

Love them: Young people are going to explore. Set an example in your own life. For me, "evil" is hating others without any real reason, treating others unfairly, demanding things for which you haven't worked, defining yourself in terms of owning worthless things.

What's the most effective way to discipline my children without inflicting fear?

Time out: When children get to about 3 years, use of timeouts can be effective - a non punitive approach. Prior to this age distraction or "positive timeouts" may be useful.

Can children use Clobex?

Can children use Clobex?

Clobex/children: It is safe to use in kids 12 and older. Under age 12, it is a pretty hefty steroid to use for a kid. It is a steroid, and a fairly potent one at that. Kids can absorb it through their skin and it can then affect them as if they ingested it. I would use a lower potency steroid on a kid under 12, although there are occasions when a stronger one is needed - close monitoring is then needed as well ...Read more
