comment Preventing motion sickness in a baby on a plane
I always thought kids were less susceptible to motion sickness than adults. That was my experience when our family took the ferry between Britain and Ireland a few times a year every year of my childhood. (Ferries these days are larger and have stabilisers. Doing the same trip now as an adult I still don't get sea sick.) Maybe babies are different.

comment What should I teach my teenager about condoms?
It might also be worth mentioning that the condom-dispensing machines which are ubiquitous in fast-food, pub, and service-station toilets are often broken and will frequently swallow your money without dispensing anything in return.

comment How do you handle a teacher that teaches pseudo science?
"If the teacher proposes creation science with a basis of fact" ... he should publish in a Peer Reviewed journal and wait for his Nobel Prize.

comment How do you curb “tattletale” behavior in a toddler?
Fair enough. That makes sense. (But I don't think it's any harm to clarify that, as you have done.)

comment Why do kisses stop a child from hurting?
+1. The placebo effect is powerful and strange. It's about our beliefs and expectations. It's about the cultural meaning of a treatment.

Because it is worse to tell on someone who does something bad, wrong, or cruel than it is to do something bad, wrong, or cruel?

@Beska. Thanks. As you can see, the bulk of it is quoted. It's a good article: I'd suggest following the link and reading it in full.

comment Ways to find (non-religious) volunteer opportunities for your children?
@Torben. Scouting (especially in the USA) doesn't exactly count as "non-religious".

comment Is it normal for a toddler belly to last into the pre-school years?
Please don't fat-shame five-year-olds. Please don't fat-shame anyone.
