Not about parenting, but about emotional resiliance.

@Patrick87 your comment rejects the premise of the question. I flagged your comment.

comment What do I tell my child about her Learning Disability?
@sbi yes, it does a little bit. Maybe it's a cultural thing? In England your comment comes across as discriminatory and patronising. It probably wouldn't in German.

comment What do I tell my child about her Learning Disability?
-1 for patronising stigmatising views of people with learning/intellectual disability. Here's a tweet from Hazel Watson (nurse lead of learning disability and MH for NHS England) recommending Clinical Commissioning Groups should employ people with LD: mobile.twitter.com/HazelWatsonNHSE/status/642384602229809152 here's a mayor who has LD: theguardian.com/social-care-network/2015/may/21/…

comment Are ExerSaucers/walkers/jumpers bad for children or is that simply a misconception?
OP specifically asks for research. Your answer doesn't provide any research. Your answer provides some anecdote; those anecdotes are countered by the statistics of children who are injured by walker accidents. You should probably delete your non-answer.

comment My son did badly in his AS levels because he didn't work
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it appears to be about careers / educational advice, not about parenting. There's nothing about how to hold the discussion with parents or how to persuade the child etc.

comment Are ExerSaucers/walkers/jumpers bad for children or is that simply a misconception?
Question does specifically ask about research. We know that common sense is often wrong. For walkers: a few unsupervised minutes is all it takes for very serious, life-risking, accidents to happen. While rare it's a possibility.

comment Are ExerSaucers/walkers/jumpers bad for children or is that simply a misconception?
Hi! Welcome to ParentingSE! You provide some nice anecdote about baby walkers, and end with "Where is any real research?". Your answer would have been more useful if you had linked to research showing a lack of harm from these products.

comment My son did badly in his AS levels because he didn't work
Some cultural notes: children do GCSEs at age 16. They then go to work; or two years "further education" in a sixth form or a further education college. The qualifications they earn there (A levels) are used for entry to University. An AS level is an exam that can be taken half way through the A level course.

comment 11-year old having recurring nightmares about killing people she knows. Should I be worried?
If your child had a physical health problem you would seek help. Why do you stigmatise mental health problems by keeping it hidden and not getting help? Of course she's going to pick up the shame you project. Most of the stuff we see doctors about is abnormal - that's why we seek help. "Is it affecting your day to day life?" It sounds like it's starting to affect her day to day life, if only mildly.

comment How to end 9-yr-old's video game time with less stress?
Have an egg timer with a one minute countdown and an alarm. Children don't have much concept of time and a five minute warning is going to be meaningless even if he can see a clock.

Hi @Erica that's a good question. I don't know the answer. Here's the UK National Health Service page I got that from. nhs.uk/chq/Pages/824.aspx?CategoryID=51

comment crying discipline manners
I'd tell that other person to mind their own business. I'd do so robustly. I'd let them know how rude they were being.
