comment How can I reduce back pain from lifting or holding a baby for too long?
@Erica there can be life-threatening causes of back pain. Someone with back pain should see a doctor to have those rare but severe causes ruled out. This question is both about good lift technique but also clealry about avoiding pain. The avoiding pain part is medical advice.

comment Structured reading coaching
Stack exchange is an international site! Please, what age is your child? You might want to edit out "kindergarten" and "first grade" (which could be anything between 3 and 7) and edit in the actual age. :-)

comment Structured reading coaching
In England we use "synthetic phonics". There are a gajillion sources for structured synthetic phonics materials. You probably need to get a cd or dvd or online media to hear the sounds -- it's important to use the correct sounds.

comment Why do people in media always refer to babies as females?
This is an English usage question and has nothing to do with parenting. Voting to migrate this to english.stackexchange.com

You're asking for medical advice. This site can't give medical advice. This comment is not medical advice. 1) rule out scary causes. A doctor can do this. 2) lose weight if you are overweight. 3) very carefully do exercise that builds strength in the back. Get doctor advice about this. 4) you might need to start taking pain killers. Avoid opiates. Ask a doctor or pharmacist, but paracetamol might be okay. MAKE SURE ALL MEDICINE IS IN A HIGH LOCKED CABINET. Many children die each year from accidental overdose.

comment At what age does the child start understanding the difference between the spoken words which have different meanings but sound same?
"Frog eat pen" could be "the frog ate the pen" or "the frog eats the pen". I suspect it's "the frog eats the pen", & the child is just dropping the s from eats. This language tense stuff is tricky, but they tend to sort it out as they get older. EG a child might say "My is going " instead of "I am going". Keep on talking to your child; model good language (so, if the child say "frog eat pen" you say in an encouraging happy voice "Yes! The frog eats the pen! Chomp chomp chomp!"). I know there are people with language specialisms reading Parenting SE so I'll let them leave a proper answer.

Please do not give medical advice. Squinting could be a precursor to amblyopia, which is a serious condition. nhs.uk/conditions/lazy-eye/Pages/Introduction.aspx

comment How to please my girlfriend's stepfather?
This question is clearly about parenting! There is a parent who has a reaction to a situation and another person who wants to understand that parents reaction and to change that parent's mind. The parent will want some things and the children want to reassure that parent that those things are happening.

comment My 13-year-old son made a foolish and wasteful donation. How can I teach him he was wrong?
Charities can use single shoes for the millions of people who only have a single leg, eg all the children maimed by cluster bombs or landmines.
