  1. What age do you think is best to become a parent?
  2. Your 4-year-old daughter is throwing a fit because you wont let her have 3 bags of chips at the grocery store. You've given her the option of either 1 bag, or we can go empty-handed. She is yelling and stomping by the cash register. What do you do next?
  3. It's a Saturday and you're going out with your little boy. You watch from a bench as he runs up and down the slide and plays with his friends. Then you watch him walk up to a man sitting on the bench across from you.
  4. You and your spouse are going out tonight and your son, Alex, is going to stay home with Bella, his babysitter. You and Alex go over the house rules and you leave. You come home a few hours later and find that since you left, Alex has not been co-operating and refuses to take part in any of the activities Bella has planned for him (even though you know he loves those games). Bella has reported that he continuously repeats the phrases "You're not my mom," and "I don't have to listen to you." What do you do?
  5. You've been trying to potty-train your son for months, but he still wets his bed. How do you react?
  6. It's dinner time and your daughter won't eat. She was eating chips just moments before and you've taken them away from her because it was time to eat dinner. She says she doesn't want vegetables, she just wants her chips back. What do you do?
  7. Its a Thursday. Your spouse is away and you have an essay due Friday that you need to finish. Last time you checked up on your daughter she was sitting at the dining room table colouring in her new Barbie coulouring book. You've only been away from her for 30 minutes at a time. While you were working, you heard a loud crash like glass shattering. You run down the stairs and find your daughter standing in the middle of the room nervously with her hands in her pockets. When you ask her what happened, she refused to say a word. You hunt around the house and can find no sign of anything missing or out of place, and surely no broken glass. What do you do?
  8. Your best friend is a Kindergarten teacher. She asks you to come in and help her out one day and you've agreed. She tells you to watch the class as she goes out to pick up some things for the kids. While she is gone, one child comes up to you and tells you every little thing that everyone else is doing. How will you deal with it?
  9. You and your daughter have just left the corner store and you surprise her with a candy bar you bought for her. You expect her to get excited, but she doesn't. She pulls 2 chocolate bars out from her pocket and says that she already has some. When you ask her where she got it, she answers "The store has a lot of them." You now know she stole them. How do you react?
  10. You took your son to the park today and saw him snatch one of his toys from the hands of a younger child. You know him well enough and you know he's not much for sharing. You see the other boy pick up a different toy and he is not upset. How will you deal with your son?
  11. Today, after school, you went to your child's school to pick him up. You showed up a bit early, so you are just watching the class as they are packing up their things and getting ready to go home. On the side, you can see your son and two of his friends playing with one of the class toys, a green dinosaur, and then you see that your son has pushed one of the other boys to the ground and took the toy from him. What would you do?
  12. It's nearly 9:30 at night. You tell your son to brush his teeth and get ready for bed. He cries and begs for more time, then says "It's not fair! I'm not tired! And how come you don't have to go to sleep???"
  13. You and your son are having a good day. No problems so far. And suddenly, he has a mood swing and feels like not listening to you. He ignores everything you say and denies anything that is deniable and says "I don't have to do anything for you" whenever you tell him to do something. What do you do?
