comment Am I wrong in what I did? Locking a door on a screaming toddler at bed time!
I humbly suggest some marriage counseling. In reading your question, I think there's a LOT more going on than this one particular issue.

comment Is putting a 9-year-old to bed early abusive?
Your teacher thinks it may be abusive. You do not. It's not really a question that we can answer here, as it's going to be entirely subjective. All that said, if it's working for your child and they aren't upset, then I don't see the harm.

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 At what age is it no longer appropriate for your child to be naked in public (e.g. on the beach)?
The answer is dependent on the opinion of those sharing the beach with you.

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 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.
