comment Does anybody know how to choose a juicer?
With the help of one of their moderators, I found the following Questions that may be helpful to you: Do I need a juicer? -- How do I start juicing? -- and Blender vs food processor vs juicer. If you have additional specific questions about juicers after reading through those, then they'd be happy to answer you there. Good luck!

Hi Alex, I don't see a connection to Parenting here. I will ask the Seasoned Advice moderators if they are interested in migrating it (it may be on topic there, may not), but we can't really give you an answer on our site. Sorry!

comment How can I explain to my son why sunlight will hurt his eyes?
@MartinCarney This is a good point, but for the sake of simplicity (talking to a toddler) I'd still encourage "no laser pointers" :)

Workplace.SE might also accept it as an employment question.

comment Legality of pulling kids from class to do work for school
There's such a thing as credit for work in some places, but it's really impossible to provide a definitive answer to this as regulations can vary significantly (and we're not a legal forum). Plus, I'm not sure about the Parenting aspect of this (if the students and parents have a problem with it, e.g., then we'd be able to answer how to navigate the situation)...

comment How can I explain to my son why sunlight will hurt his eyes?
Please use comments appropriately: do not answer in comments and do not start side conversations (or post jokes). That includes discussing how the physics of the explanation are wrong -- we're Parenting.SE, so keep details like that in an answer (if it will be helpful for a parent to say to a child).

comment How to prepare a two year old for international relocation
I proposed relocation as a synonym for moving since I think they are sufficiently identical (community feedback is required for that to be finalized). Change is a pretty good tag/topic, but I would love to see a bit more discussion about what to call it. See meta :)

comment 6 Year old son behavior problems at school and now at home
We can't provide a diagnosis; it could be any number of things, but a complete and thorough evaluation is critical to getting the right answer (and therefore the right solution). I will note that ADHD doesn't require medication, and many of its symptoms can be handled with behavioral interventions or school accommodations.

comment Temper Tantrums
One possible idea for making the consequence more "immediate" is to give the teacher permission to tell her she will not be allowed to have iPad access at home if the tantrum continues and her work does not get done. While the consequence is still removed in time from her behavior, it may help her to be reminded that a privilege she values (iPad time) will be revoked in addition to the punishment she doesn't mind (sitting in the corner)

comment Step Children Issues
@Ida that is cultural, and even regional (when I moved from the North to the South, I was surprised to learn sir/ma'am was expected language of children towards adults), but likely is fairly standard among other families etc.

comment Step Children Issues
Welcome to Parenting.SE, Maggie. What sort of consequences do you and your husband impose when the boys break a rule or don't do a chore? What do your in-laws do (presuming that they do have some rules even if they're more lax than your house rules)?

comment Evidence based guidelines for front or rearward facing pushchairs/strollers?
This makes sense from what I know of childhood development, but does it change over time? Also, can you link to some research so everyone else can read more too? Thanks, and welcome :)

comment How to remove brown stains from colored underwear?
Can you give a better cost breakdown of how purchasing new underpants compares to the "waste of money" other methods might cause?
