Sleep problems: For a week now my 22 month old has stopped napping during the day and just stands and screams in her cot at night time. Since 8 weeks old she's been a great sleeper with no fuss or elaborate routine and now it's a drama. I suspect it's teething so she's had calpol most nights but it's so hard to tell. When we do get her off to sleep at night she's waking early and we're having to bring her in to our bed where she's easily settled - help!

Does anyone else have a kid who gets frightened by Halloween? My 4-year-old girl has started spotting Halloween stuff in shop displays and is getting frightened. I'm not sure how to handle it as I love Halloween!!

My toddler has just started to tell me to go away and sometimes pushes me away. Is this normal? It's quite upsetting as I haven't changed my behaviour and am always what I believe is loving and patient mum.

If you want to find something great to watch on the telly go here: www.commonsensemedia.org. They are a nonprofit. They have age-based reviews for movies, shows, books, etc. On top of the reviews they have sound parenting advice for raising kids in our digital world full of media and technology.

Postnatal depression in men is very scary - just read the Tantrum article about it. Does anyone have any advice on how to prepare dads-to-be for when the baby arrives?

What's better for potty-training? A potty, or one of those small seat things for the toilet?
