comment How do you evaluate yourself as a parent?
+1 @monsto: Truly value variety of inputs, though guess my take on your answer is that appears you're defining success by if children like their parents, which to me is a good goal, is not related to the success of the child; the goal in my opinion of a parent. Again, just my opinion, and thanks for posting!

To me this is a does it exist question, not a how to pick from what exist question.

@Beofett: So, reviewed the blog, and unless you're able to restate the logic you used, and reference where on that page it's cited, I'm not "buying" that is question is some how formatted as a shopping question for the very reason I stated before, in order for it to be a shopping question more something has to exist which is comparable to another item that exists which meets the requirements stated. At that point I asked the question, and selected an answer, I had not tried the suggested solutions. Since then I have, and none met the stated requirements.

+1 @morah hochman: Agree it's a hard question, though one in my opinion that parents on whole rarely objectively attempt to answer. Thanks for posting an answer!

+2 @Beofett: Given that there's so few "products" that do what I'm talking about, in fact none that I aware of, don't believe a long list of items is possible. Beyond that, shopping is shopping, believe you're saying the question is subjective; which again is only possible if more than one choice exist. I'll check out the meta question. Thanks for the quick response!

@Beofett: Not sure why, but just got your comment. Puzzled by your take on the question since I was not looking to buy anything (shopping) -- nor do I understand how teaching math is not related to being a parent. Please reply, thanks!

+1 @nGinius: Thanks, I'd seen Khan's videos before, but had never seen the interface for testing knowledge learned or linking the subjects. So far it's ok, not happy that the site is not secure and sends emails/names/etc unencrypted, but guess I'll just set up dummy names/emails to try it out more.
