"My son is 3 years old and he's still in diapers. We've tried starting potty training multiple times with him, and he's excited at first but then completely loses interest. It gets to the point where he'll scream and cry when we put underwear on him. He wants his diaper back on."

"How can I get my 10-year-old son to understand homework is important and he needs to complete it every night to get a good grade?"

"My son is almost 3, and he still needs his pacifier. I've been told by just about everyone that he needs to give it up. I know it's true and I've actually tried once, but he threw an epic tantrum that lasted pretty much all day long so I gave it back. Since then I haven't been looking forward to it."

A 14-year-old neighborhood boy hangs out at family's house all the time. "He comes over unannounced most of the time, eats a ton of our food and overstays his welcome. I've tried mentioning this nicely to him, but it seems to fall on deaf ears. What should we do?"

"My son is 6 and we've just recently starting letting him have friends over. His best friend, who is also 6, is a great kid, but he tends to act up a lot when he's at our house. He doesn't have any siblings, so he steals toys from our youngest and I've seen him hit both my kids. I'm not sure to go about handling this. I don't feel right "reprimanding" him. Do I just talk to his parents? I don't want to stop having him over, but this has to stop."
