comment Explain Pre-Teens and Teens the problems of a surveillance state and internet privacy
meta.parenting.stackexchange.com/q/123/4054 is the canonical meta that discusses "arguing with the premise" -- in a nutshell, clarification or argument as an "answer" is not good answering behavior for Parenting.SE. Consider the tone as well: is "gobbledygook" more likely to encourage calm reexamination and research, or an emotionally defensive reaction?

revised What is effective, non-toxic method to clean vomit from a carpet?
tweaked title; in particular removed "chemicals" (baking soda, e.g., is a chemical option that cleans effectively, but is safer than industrial cleansers)

This is more of am argument with the premise of the question than answering what was asked. To get clarification from the OP, comments would be better; disputing what he wants to teach is not productive as either answer or comment, though.

Welcome to Parenting.SE. I assume (like Brian) that you're asking for advice on how to help your son through the process of moving out on his own -- can you clarify if that's the case, or if you have additional questions or details?

While vomit is a common parenting problem, is this possibly a better fit for LifeHacks? (I sort of hope not, I want to see the answers...!)

comment How do I motivate my 8-year-old to practice the piano regularly?
Do you think you could rewrite this so as not to complain about the deleterious influence of students on music? You're not providing constructive advice after a certain point.

Can you clarify how this is related to parenting? While we may be able to provide guidance on talking to teens, this is more am education question

comment How do I convince my eleven-year-old to practice her dancing?
Note that politely is an important difference between the two Answers, as well as providing a thorough examination of possible approaches and perspectives; while the other Answer does (pretty constantly) question the OP's premise, it does not do so exclusively. This response could have been much more positively phrased, and I get very little sense that it was intended to be supportive. If you'd like me to provide a more extensive explanation of the differences, please flag me in Chat or open a discussion on meta.

The motherhood/grandmotherhood question would be an excellent additional question. Please do ask it :)

comment How to help a child overcome their fear of mascots?
Mine also hated costumed characters at that age, and we think it was due to their unrealistic appearance and movement (and, often, silence). Unfortunately I found no remedy besides growing out of it :(

comment How to use Band-Aids for childhood injuries?
Great overview. I was also told that scrapes "needed air" after one or two days of bandages -- helpful to know that's a myth!

Welcome to Parenting.SE! Have you taken your son to a doctor and asked your questions? There is no way to get a child to reach his developmental milestones sooner, but early intervention for some delays (for example, perhaps he does not hear well and so it is harder to learn to speak) help. I also hope you can narrow what you're asking -- do you want to know what is normal for an 18-month-old?, or more what are our next steps?
