comment How do I tell my mom that I am not Christian?
It is really up to your parents. It's hard for us to say how to not upset your parents without understanding what your parents may or may not be upset with.

comment Should I expect a boy to ask me for permission for prom?
It'd be nice if he did, but I don't think that's the norm anymore. A bit of a relic from a few generations ago.

Being constantly stressed and without free time seems pretty 'normal' for dual-working parents of two small children. :/

comment Dad-to-be needs help finding a changing table
Not much use for a changing table after the diapers are done, though. Hence the decision to purchase something repurposable.

@defaultlocale the typical response is "so, tell me when you made the big life decision to be straight?"

They're primary colors. They'll match any kids room! :) (I can see your wife's point. But maybe try to remind her that the kids furniture has a shelf life of maybe 2 years and then it's gone...)

comment How can I teach my child about Christianity?
"I would like to teach my child about my religion" = at that point, it's really just a personal decision you'll have to make on your own.

comment Credibly backing out of a condition for a reward
You know he is capable of 3-4 greens, so rather than 'backing out' maybe re-evaluate the requirement. Tell him for a few weeks you'll make it a bit easier at 3 greens a week. Then you can try 4.

comment Why should children be rewarded for good behaviour?
Humans, like most animals, react better to positive reinforcement rather than negative reinforcement.

comment Can Not Speaking Be Due To Just Plain Refusing To Speak?
Yes, it could be a development issue OR it could be tha they are in no hurry to talk. Speak with a pediatric speech pathologist and they can help.

comment What is a reasonable amount of time to wait before family visits your new baby?
I think it all depends on how much everyone likes each other. I couldn't blame any of our parents for wanting to see our kids the day they were born.
