1. Why is emotional punishment better than physical punishment?
No kind of abuse teaches a child anything valuable, it only creates damage and a strained relationship between you and your child. Emotional abuse isn't any better than physical abuse, and 'emotional punishment' is not what the article advocates, either. Punishment should simply be logical and consistent. When you mistreat people or refuse to cooperate, you don't get to have what you want. Or, when you don't uphold your end of an agreement we made, I don't uphold my end of the agreement (doing or giving you something you wanted). These are the basic, real-world-applicable principles you should be teaching, and you can teach them effectively without damaging your child or your relationship with them.

4. My daughter is almost 3 but doesn't speak well. What can I do to help her speak according to her age?

6. My son is 8 years old but very reluctant to change his clothes himself without parent help. He also avoids eating meals and fruits, he only eats snacks and drinks juices. What do I do with him?
To solve the latter problem you can give him water in colored glasses to drink, to make it seem like he is drinking some juice. For meals you can play games, such as creating something inventive with the food, or creating quizzes about the food. For the clothing problem you can encourage him to change clothes within limited time. If he does dress up quickly you can give him praise. Note that you give him the clothes that he has to wear until he is a bit older.
7. How can I relate to a chid who doesn't like talking?
