comment How should I inform parents if their children are bothering me?
+100 for "my problem". It's not unfair to ask people for help with your problems, but at the end of the day, your problems are not theirs.

comment Is there a downside to giving a preschooler band-aids when he doesn't really need them?

comment Should Disney princess movies be avoided?
Interesting. I actually take more issue with Princess and the Frog than any of the others. It's the only one with the central message "no matter how hard you work, you gotta find a man, honey". And by central message, I mean, literally the middle song is "don't work hard, get married".

comment Can children be educated without a family by professionals?
I think this is an interesting hypothetical (if well trodden ground, as this is Plato's idea of family rearing), and I'm not sure if it's subjective, as there is research and thought experiments on this stretching 2,000+ years. However, I'm not sure if it's useful to the community, in the same way as "What are alternatives to using computers" is not a long-term helpful question on superuser. I'd suggest this would go better at WorldBuilding or possibly philosophy?

comment When is corporal punishment abuse, really?
What's always interesting to me is where does this end? If you believe that pain is an acceptable, why is hitting your spouse considered wrong as long as it is also "delivered in a loving way"? Why is it not okay for someone to knock down and kick someone who queue jumps? In essence, why is it only okay when it's a child? Maybe it's just my need for simplicity, but I'd really have a hard time justifying to my daughter that it's not okay for her to push another child, but it's fine for me to hold her down and hit her.

comment How to get 4 year old to stick up for himself but not turn into a bully?
@anongoodnurse I've tweaked the question slightly to make it look more like an answer than a question. Kippie, if you don't like the edit, feel free to revert or edit further.

comment How to get 4 year old to stick up for himself but not turn into a bully?
+1: Great answer. A good line in this situation: "I know your boy's only little, but I can't really just sit here and watch my son get hit, he doesn't like it." There's not really a valid comeback to this.

I think this answer could be improved by what influenced you to be a stay-at-home dad. Clearly, Anon's having doubts that you didn't, how did you cope with the issues that she's facing?

comment What should we do when our 15 year old wants sex with his 13 year old girlfriend?
@Danililoko Sure, but that's technically true of all parenting. You can't stop him getting high, stealing a car and running over the neighbour's dog, but you can do your best not to get Fido killed.
