I am:

I'm pretty much always trying to be helpful. If I'm not succeeding, just let me know.

Okay, so maybe I wasn't trying that hard in the question below. But usually.

comment What is a healthy, ethical way to deal with a nanny cam?
@woliveirajr, do you mean legally? I know the facts from a legal perspective. I'm interested in the ethical aspects, which only seem location specific if there are different social norms?

comment How can you offer other parents suggestions without making them defensive?
wrt to it not being my job, I know. And I'm not as much of a buttinski/know-it-all as this question might imply. But my question is predicated on cases where I think it's important enough to do some work to maximize my odds of being able to help. And I do get that some things are just style, but job or no, it'd be a heavy burden to wonder whether I could have pushed a little harder about something like the very high choke risk of some foods, etc. before something tragic might happen to a nephew, close friend, etc.
