comment At what age should a child be introduced to the Television?
Great answer. I really like the idea of hooking up a webcam to it and letting the child "see himself on TV" - that was a HUGE deal for me when I was little. :D

comment What do I do about the fact that my child can already read, write and do math before entering Kindergarten?
@Ethel Evans I've got a good friend in WA that did Running Start... I really wish they had something like that in Michigan (maybe they do / will when I have kids). Thank you for the perspective, though.

Your parents were awesome for that.

comment What is the best way to respond if my child is picked on by other children?
Upvoted for 'stand by them though a suspension'. Just because you're in trouble with Them doesn't mean that you're in trouble with me.

comment What constitutes verbal abuse of one's child?
@Javid Jamae But the fact that they're legally classified as 'assault' does not make them any less a form of abuse, does it?

comment What should I teach my teenager about condoms?
Please, please, please make sure to destroy the myth that using two condoms is more effective. (The reality is that they will rub against each other, and that the friction will cause them to be more likely to break!) Teens love talking about sex, and a LOT of misinformation gets passed around as a result - misinformation that could result in surprise grandchildren.

comment Everything my son draws is abstract. Is this a problem?
Upvoted for truth. I'd say that it's a good sign if he's able to grasp abstract concepts and express himself thusly, but that's just my $0.02.
