comment Dad-to-be needs help finding a changing table
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 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.

comment Receiving a new visitor who has autism
I'd find it very welcoming. "Hi, welcome to our family! Is there anything we can to accommodate your kids and make them feel welcome?" No need to even bring up the autism directly.

autism is a gigantic spectrum. I would ask this question of your brother and his girlfriend.

comment teenage child with severe daily temper tantrums and whining
So you think it's a medical condition, but you've only seen one doctor? I'd suggest seeing a few more doctors.
