comment How can I avoid my girlfriend getting depressed over studies?
@Jorge There was a relationships.se that was started that would have been an appopriate site for this question, but unfortunately that site failed to make it out of private beta. This isn't really the right place for this, as currently worded, but your concerns would be perfectly valid as a question here were your relationship be parent/child, or even as siblings.

comment How should we deal with some inappropriate behavior from our 10-year-old son?
A message with inappropriate language is not "cyberbullying by definition". Part of the definition of bullying in general is "Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once." We cannot assume from the information provided that A) the message was harassing (it may not have even been directed at the girl, as Doc pointed out), or B) that it had the potential to be repeated (again, for the same reasons Doc pointed out).

comment is parenting in crisis in middle class families?
Rather than delete it, I'd prefer that we try to improve it. If we could focus on one specific aspect of your concern per question, we stand a much better chance of giving you useful information. Discussion, however, is really suited for Parenting Chat, which you need just a bit more reputation for.

comment is parenting in crisis in middle class families?
I'm not certain what type of answers you are looking for. Can you please edit your question to present a single, concrete question? Right now this seems to be inviting discussion, which is off topic here. Incidentally, some of your comments seem to be over-generalizations (e.g. you seem to be assuming that no middle class families include a stay-at-home parent); if you want to include them in your revised question, please expand on your claims (and provide references, if possible).

comment My child is ignoring my timeouts and walking away from them. What are some options for handling this?
@sampablokuper Thank you, that's a huge improvement. I've changed my -1 to a +1.

comment My child is ignoring my timeouts and walking away from them. What are some options for handling this?
Hello, and welcome to the site! Please take a moment to take our tour. While the website you linked may have useful information, answers here should be reasonably self-contained. Please edit your answer to include some details about what the person asking the question can do. Explaining why timeouts may not work may be interesting, but an answer here should detail actions that can be taken.

comment Just found out my 13 year old girl is Bi and dating a 17 year old girl in an “open” relationship. Huh? Now what?
Let's keep comments for clarifying or requesting clarification to the content, and not for criticisms or discussion. Extended discussion should occur in Parenting Chat. If you disagree with an answer, it is okay to post a short comment explaining why you are (presumably) downvoting it, but let's keep it civil, and directly to the point.
