comment Younger sister blackmailing parents
+1 for recording the threats. You want as much evidence to control the fallout as calls to the police can get out of hand. At the every least, Child services may be called in and at the worst, things can get very bad (slate: Why I Don’t Call the Police).

comment My son wants to learn to ride a motorbike. How can I discourage him?
How old is he? I got my motorcycle licence when I was about 22, which is way different to 17. I started on an old 250, which is way different to a ZZR1400.

comment Is cryopreservation of sperm worth it for non-emergency “personal backup” purpose?
Perhaps the first question should be: is it best to have children posthumously. There are some upsides. There are also a number of downsides, for example: a child with no father, pressure on the GF to impregnate herself when you're dead and raise your children without your help, tying your GF to a relationship that passed when you did, etc.

comment How to inculcate concentration for 5 yr old kid?
I believe this is the start of an answer. My son's class (just turned 6) will start school with a run around the school before settling in for any work that requires concentration. In the teacher's experience (and ours) the exercise settles the kids down a lot.

comment Choosing a surname for child of unmarried couple
Valid point about the laws varying between countries. In Turkey, the child must have the father's surname.

comment What are good strategies to deal with a child getting distracted during meals?
Some problems are ephemeral - you are just trying to get them through a stage in life until their priorities or tastes mature. Somewhat like your question on getting kids to eat raw garlic - perhaps they are just not quite old enough yet.

Get her to log her periods (start/end dates) so you have scientific information then see a doctor.
