comment I am 24 years old. I found marijuana and ecstasy my 17 year old sister's room. What should I do?
This is probably the worst answer in the history of Parenting.SE. Telling "everyone everything" will result in the sister being branded a druggie, probably expelled from school, and quite possibly arrested: it's this that would turn her into "Beavis & Butthead", not the drugs themselves.

comment Dealing with teens and pornography?
"Fact"? Actual scientific research on the topic is mixed at best, there's some evidence that the availability of porn has decreased sexual violence. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effects_of_pornography

comment Dealing with teens and pornography?
"The dangers of pornography on the teenage mind are well-documented" -- really? Cavemen in 28,000 BCE had porn (see eg. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_of_Willendorf), while the idea that porn corrupts young minds is a Victorian invention.

comment Enforcing minority languages at home
If I believed that, I wouldn't be raising trilingual kids! The issue is not English, but that we're the only sources of Finnish or Japanese around, so if you cut that off, they won't learn either language.

Are you planning to stay in Austria forever? If your kids can't even speak Danish, they're going to have a hard time in school if you ever go back.

comment Preventing motion sickness in a baby on a plane
@Doc Can you point to a study showing some of that scientific and medical proof then? Because I can only find ones that say they don't work.

"Is it worth a shot?" Well, no, since they don't work, and babies are too young to even enjoy placebo effects. skeptics.stackexchange.com/questions/14988/…

Yes, apparently motion sickness in kids under two is quite rare, but that's not much of a consolation for us...
