Complains it should be closed, doesn't vote to close, then posts an answer. Ah, some things never change.

comment Thumbs splitting from changing nappies & repeated hand washing
Valid point. However, an XY problem where there is insufficient information about the process is still a reason to put on hold, albeit as "not clear what you're asking".

comment Thumbs splitting from changing nappies & repeated hand washing
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the parenting element is completely incidental. The question would be functionally identical if it was fishing that caused the splitting and cracking of your fingertips.

comment How do you raise an intelligent and happy daughter in a sexist world?
Picking one small detail to address should be a comment. Answers here are supposed to be complete answers, fully addressing the entire question.

comment Should a precocious child be prevented from devoting too much time to their primary interest?
@bjb568 How long might be considered excessive is highly variable dependent on age, but consider 3 hours to be a completely arbitrary placeholder for purposes of getting an answer. Please don't read too much into it.

comment Why does skin dryness occur in newborns and infants and how can I help with or prevent it?
-1 please don't confuse fringe conspiracy theories and dangerous pseudo science with "truth". This answer is a borderline rant at best, and dangerously wrong advice.

comment How can I prevent my parents' divorce?
My parents got divorced when I was very young. Neither were violent, depressed, suicidal, or alcoholics. The divorce was hard on me, but you know what would have been harder? Growing up in a house with both my parents fighting with each other all the time. Divorce worse than death? That's a gross and naïve oversimplification.
