comment Introducing my children into my disbelief in a Christian environment
I'd just share your thoughts on it with your children. "Mommy believes this, Daddy believes this."

comment Is it normal for a 3 year old to change their clothes every 10 minutes all day long?
Typical? no. "Normal"? Who's to say?

comment My toddler has dandruff in her hair, and we've found tiny insects on her scalp
Easiest solution: shave the head. Not all kids (or parents) will opt for that, however. Barring that, get ready to spend some long hours with a fine comb and delousing shampoo.

comment 14 yr old lesbian/bi daughter
I think you may be overcomplicating the justifications. Why didn't you allow the boy in her room? Was it sex? What part of sex were you against? All of it? The pregnancy part? etc. I think you maybe just have to ask more questions of yourselves to figure it out. Good luck!

comment Autistic child constantly mobbed by other children - what can be done?
The problem is the other kids, not the one with autism. This has to be handled by others...parents, teachers, other parents, the community, maybe police, etc.

comment Why do humans require assistance in childbirth so frequently?
"Tradition, herd mentality, and (unfortunatly) economical gain"...umm...sure...but your also missing things like Medical Improvements, helping each other, modern technologies, etc. Your answer seems to imply that there's no statistical reason to give birth in a hospital.

comment I am 24 years old. I found marijuana and ecstasy my 17 year old sister's room. What should I do?
Yes, it definitely could potentially not be OK. But that's different than "never OK". My point being that it's important to be concerned, but also to be pragmatic and not over-react as well.

"It's never ok." = it's often OK. NOT that you should let the 17 year old make that call on her own, but I think it's also important to realize that experimenting with drugs (be it ecstasy or beer or what have you) is extremely common and many (most) people turn out completely OK.

comment Why are parents so concerned about profanity around their children?
This doesn't answer the question and is self promotion.

comment At what age can a child be left alone in a parked car?
Depends on the car, where you live, the temperature outside, the temperment of the child, social norms in your region, laws in your region, etc, etc.

comment How to handle my baby boy urinating in bath?
Trivia: Boys will pee in the shower their entire life. ;) As for the baby, just keep it in the tub and you'll be fine. Pee is sterile.

comment When should I allow a child to swear?
Stating that people shouldn't have any reason to use language in the way they see fit is more of a subjective opinion. It's a valid opinion to have, but still purely subjective.

comment What are the best tv shows for a 3 year old
Impossible to answer what is 'best'. In general, TV isn't great for 3 year olds, but it sounds like you're plopping her in front of Nickelodeon and PBS Kids, and that seems as good as any.
