    Should I allow the stepfather to spank my almost 4 year old?

    Here's my situation: The stepfather and I got pregnant unexpectedly soon after my son turned 2. We decided to try to be a family for our now daughter. My son is almost 4. The main problem in our relationship is discipling my son. We disagree on a lot, but we are finally trying to come together and reach a compromise. The BIG problem for me?

    3 year old sudden stuttering

    My 3 year old recently started stuttering pretty bad. There are times where she doesn’t seem to do it at all but for the most part she stutters. Last night I noticed she has started throwing her head back and yanking at her shirt neck at times when she stutters. Should I be concerned and take her to the doctors to get checked out??

    Three year old willful child

    I have an almost 3 yr old daughter who is extremely willful. She says no to everything, she hits just to hit, she thinks it's funny to be mean. We do automatic timeouts for hitting, I point out her hurtful words and make sure she knows she is hurting physically and hurting feelings.
