comment How to cope with a crying infant in the car during short trips?
Another quick thing to try if you have friends with a car seat they can lend you - is it just that the seat is uncomfortable for him? Worth a try, or adding a blanket under him - it could be that simple.

comment Can a father use his son's first name as a pseudonym to publish his writing?
This question isn't really a parenting question - it's very opinion based, and possibly strays into legal territory we can't advise on here.

comment How to handle baby waking up while sleep training
MJ6 - from all the advice we were given with our 3 kids, I'd have to agree with aparente on this - at 3 months, you should still be demand feeding, and if that is at night then that's what you should give.

comment How to make my 11-year-old boy more responsible?
@aparente001 - I will state it again - comments are not for discussion on Stack Exchange. While your description of the socratic method may be perfectly correct - we don't do that in Questions, Answers or comments. Take it to chat

comment What is a good physical activity for a seven-year old who loves falling down?
I'd second this - all my kids love trampolining, especially the two who train heavily in gymnastics, parkour and athletics. It's a great sport with different levels of teaching: focusing on power moves, complexity, neatness, style etc

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

Dain - can you expand on this? Perhaps show where this information is from - a research study, maybe?

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
