comment What can be done to extend the fertility of a woman?
Fertility generally plummets well before menopause and the risk of genetic abnormality rises dramatically. The question is overly simplistic.

comment Thumbs splitting from changing nappies & repeated hand washing
@KarlBielefeldt - Thumb and adjacent 2 fingers, but the thumb was by far the worst.

comment Thumbs splitting from changing nappies & repeated hand washing
@CreationEdge - A valid concern. I asked my dermo about this since steroid creams can thin the skin. His comment was that the skin on your fingers is very thick and the condition of my thumb/fingers so bad that it did not matter too much.

comment 4 year old daughter starved for Dad's attention
-1: reads like: suck it up and turn off the xbox. I had a similar daughter who was unwilling to play by herself and always wanted to be entertained, it is a real issue that held her back creatively and, later, socially.

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.
