comment Is there an evidence-based study regarding the long-term psychological effects of spanking?
This should be closed as duplicate, the answers here are probably the best available, and if there are better answers they should go on that question instead

Coming back to this because of an upvote, that clause seems to be a bit of a broken thought process moment, removing it for clarity.

comment At what age child can get a game console?
Agreed; my own answer literally reads "Parents should parent"; but my feeling is that you should take an interest in your children's interests, rather than necessarily discouraging them.

I am also skeptical about the concept that "not playing computer games is no risk at all". Logically this can then be extended to literally every non-essential activity from singing to bungee-jumping. For example, there is fundamentally less risk of a blood infection not blackberry picking/dog walking than blackberry picking/dog walking. And your logic would seem to mean that your children can only be interested in things that you are, because "why would you help your child build a habit that you don't endorse"?

True, these studies don't make as many headlines, but that's because the incidents are taking up all the space.

"studies have shown that excessive computer gaming is correlated to emotional and behavioural problems". Citation needed. For example: "There is no such correlation between behavioral problems and other play" is completely inaccurate, as violent sport like football, soccer and boxing obviously and academically correlates with violent behaviour

comment How do I tell if my child is advanced at maths?
@EngrStudent I think we're in agreement here. I never suggested that it matters "if he invented it", but if he's grasped that "1.5 + 1.5 = 3" refers to real objects and can be applied further, or if he's just memorised the words that he's been told. Where you said "walk the road", I used "extensible concept", but they mean the same thing.

comment How do I tell if my child is advanced at maths?
I've updated the title to be more specific, which removed the word "Gifted" as that always causes more friction than for example, "advanced". If you feel that the word gifted is critical, feel free to rollback my change, which you can do through this link

"Gifted or Normal" is a bit vague and probably encouraging a backlash, suggesting alternate title.
