comment How different cultures teach kids about sex
This question is tricky to answer. You can look at wikipedia and get a list of teenage pregnancies by country. But then you need to work out if a low rate is because of better education or cultural practice.

comment How can I get my son to keep time during school time?
@AaronD - rejecting the premise is also considered harmful on the main stack overflow site, and others. Obviously feel free to ignore this. But please do be aware of the corrosive nature of that kind of post. There are many blogs on the WWW about it, and some meta discussion.

comment Should I let my 3 year old play educational games on my iPhone?
Just be aware that there's not much evidence that edicational apps have any educational value, so as long as you're doing it for fun it's probably ok in moderation.

comment Parenting with a formerly abused partner?
Hi! Just wanted to point out that parenting programmes recommend against multiday loss of privs as being ineffective. Removing a priv for 30 minutes is better. This is because of the way children perceive time. This doesn't answer your question, sorry!

comment How to handle my baby boy urinating in bath?
Your answer says to put children in an empty bath and run the water with the child in the bath. While it might be safe for you it is dangerous advice. Exactly that behavior causes many scalds each year. EG in the US 2 children die each day and 300 are treated at ER because of burns, and hot bath water is the leading cause of those injuries - about 50% of burns injuries are from too hot bathwater.

This advice is possibly not legal in some countries. Being a new parent is a protected characteristic.
