comment Is “hot saucing” bad parenting?
@Existential Consequentialist: How about explaining to your child: "Every time you are naughty, Santa Claus drowns a kitten"? Will that work?

For point number 8, did you mean "does not feature highly in the Bible" (e.g. not Simon, Peter, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John,..)

@Malachi: just look at any childs' face when someone gets their name wrong - they are disappointed and upset. Avoiding telemarketing is not great reason to call your child something unpronouncable.

+1 for avoiding the top 10 - look at how popular 'Jack' has been in the last 10 years and every 3rd baby girl I meet is named 'Sophie/a'.

comment Is Doctor Who too scary for children?
Disagree about TorchWood being unscary - the 'Children of Earth' special had some harrowing scenes, even for adults!

comment How do you handle a teacher that teaches pseudo science?
Richard Dawkins, an outspoken biologist and firm atheist, famously wrote a letter to his daughters imploring them to use their rational thinking to determine whether what they were being taught was a scientific fact based on evidence, opinion or falsehood. No prizes for guessing why, but I think he was on to something: rationalresponders.com/…

comment What are some hacks and gadgets for a soon-to-be dad?
Some method to record video, whether dedicated device or a smartphone is absolutely essential for capturing special moments. One key point I'd offer is to ensure you regularly archive or backup the data - if your toddler drops your smartphone down the drain and it was the only record of your newborn's first word...

comment What are some hacks and gadgets for a soon-to-be dad?
I think this is over the top - just work out babies' routine, print it out in large font and stick it to enough walls that you know what should be happening when. This has the added benefit of visitors seeing that the routine is too, so they understand why baby needs to go to sleep or why the room smells bad (and its' not grandpa this time..)

comment What are some good tea party snacks for toddlers?
Yes, I guess so. It's a party, so there tends to be treats, and they don't happen every day.
