comment My 16 month old son knows only a couple of words
Currently the post and the comments are not very useful. What I'd recommend is summarising the studies in your post and adding links to them, otherwise you'll likely continue to get downvotes

comment My 16 month old son knows only a couple of words
Dain - can you expand on this? Perhaps show where this information is from - a research study, maybe?

comment Are nontraditional family units less likely to produce a well-adjusted child?
I'll migrate this over - looks like it can be closed as a dupe of skeptics.stackexchange.com/q/25249/619

comment How to manage to get more time for ourselves when we have Kids?
While this does come under the broad scope of Productivity.SE, this will gain better answers from the experienced folks over at Parenting.SE.

comment divorced parents from different states moving together but separately
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because as mentioned, this is a conversation for lawyers and way above the level of guidance an internet Q&A sure can give.

comment 9 month old watching Telly
We have various questions here on this topic, and they all agree that while television is enjoyable, the single most important thing you can do is interact with your child yourself. Hours of television will potentially impact conversation, relationships etc

comment What are the causes and remedies of constipation in toddlers?
Honey - welcome to Parenting.SE. This answer doesn't add any new information, and in fact your comment on bananas conflicts with already posted reference material. Please read How to Answer for some guidance on answering.

comment Explain Pre-Teens and Teens the problems of a surveillance state and internet privacy
The intent seems positive, but it doesn't seem connected to parenting. Can you clarify what it is you are asking - is it about how to teach thought experiments/philosophical constructs?

comment Fast feedback loop activities for primary-schoolers?
aparente - can you please review and edit your post. Of your points, only the Suzuki violin one actually answers the question, and of that, only the first sentence is an answer (the second is an unrelated opinion piece)

comment I want to expose my 5-year-old daughter to boys and girls toys equally, but she just turned her nose up at Star Wars. What do I do?
Gabe - there is nothing innately girly about ponies - some girls like them, some hate them. I agree that kids have a lot of their personality installed, but they are all different. My middle daughter is a fighter, climber, runner and loves cars etc. My son is more measured and studious. And my youngest daughter is as girly as they come - into rainbows, unicorns and pink. All different. Nothing innate about any of their interests.

comment Can children be educated without a family by professionals?
anonymous - why not put in the effort yourself to learn and train yourself to be what you need to be for your child? You may think that you are under-qualified, but as those above mentioned, 'family' has worked for thousands of years despite the lack of training. Sure, the modern world has moved away a bit from extended family living in the same house providing experience across generations, but you can make that happen if you want to.

Okay - I'll take out that last para. It does sound a bit condescending anyway, now I read it back. Sorry

comment Is it a parent's responsibility to remember their 6 year-old child's coat as they leave their home to go to school?
minor edit to remove the specific fallacy - I think this question has merit aside from that.

comment Bringing babies to bar?
When my youngest was only a few days old, my wife and I went to a weekend event in Cambridge, with daughter in a sling. One of the otehr guests only realised we had a baby with us after about 5 hours together!

comment How to maximize the probability of having twins
bestoftwins.com/chances-of-having-twins has some useful info, but they boil down to: having children via IVF, and later in life, increases the chances of twins.

comment I don't want to be a father
Closed - this is not so much a parenting question as a relationship question. You and your wife should consider counselling in order to work out how to relate to each other.

comment Transferring a sleeping infant from my arms to his bed
I like this answer, except for the final paragraph, which is not accurate. Some babies do this; others don't. If you edit the last paragraph off, I'll add my upvote.
