comment How do you explain “Right” and “Left” politics to a child without bias?
-1; This doesn't really answer the question. "how do you explain ... to a child...." This just attempts to explain the differences.

comment What's so hard about home made carrot baby food?
@Shog9, in order to ask that question, you kinda have to already know the answer to this one (supposing the one Koert proposed is the right one).

comment How do you discuss a controversial history topic with a child?
+1 This mirrors the approach I got from my mother, and she later explained to me: don't intentionally introduce such a topic, but mentally be ready for any such topic to come up... have a plan of how you would handle rough questions like that showing up all of a sudden.

comment What's so hard about home made carrot baby food?
@David, I debated that myself, but figured long term a new parent would be more likely to look here than cooking.SE so it made more sense to put it here. If enough folks agree with you and vote to move I won't object.

comment 9yr old kid wants to learn programming, what's the best language to get him started?
I hate to vote to close a question I'd love to answer, but @hedgemage is right this belongs on programmers.SE more than it does here, in fact there are already several versions of it there. programmers.stackexchange.com/… leads to programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/71585/… or stackoverflow.com/questions/1117293/… (surprised it hasn't been migrated yet)

comment Does anyone recognize where the phrase “Dinosaur on the button” comes from?
The Dinosaur has migrated... from a button to a wheel. Pretty sure now this is just something he made up.
