comment Why should I be hell bent on educating my toddler when she's going to learn the stuff anyways when she grows up?
@DaveClarke - as you learn on Skeptics.SE, a lot of times "common sense" is wrong :)

Is there research to back those assertions up?

Some? (many?) modern glasses are made of plastic and not actual glass, so may be less fragile. Talk to the optometrist

Harry Potter!!! (2.5 may be too young to know, but if any friends or family members are fans, he may be aware)

comment Can I fit a coccoro combi car seat on an Uppa Baby stroller cruz?
Is this on-topic? This is what old-timey SE called "too localized", but that reason is no longer a valid VTC

comment How will my toddler pick up one language which seems harder than the other?
@MiniMum - possibly. Our kids are fully biligual, but at age before 2, they were slower picking up English than their first language (we separated with 1 parent speaking English one non-English, and grandparents did a mix). That evened out by 3-4

comment Should I tell my 10-year old son, how screwed-up Cinderella is?
Similar for "Your son can't deal with your interpretation of Cinderella, because he doesn't have the wisdom to understand it" - very strong statemnt, not backed up (my 8 year old can deal with such things, for example)

Do you have a citation for the last paragraph? "You will be robbing him of constructs that his 10 year old mind can benefit from" - is there research that explaining how things work in-depth robs them of the positive stuff that a fairy tale imparts?

comment My daughter is having sex with her cousin
@CreationEdge - meh. I'm almost certain that none of those laws would be left standing if someone bothered to bring it to SCOTUS as of 2015. I'm pretty sure none of them are actually enforced diligently.

comment My step son is being treated for ADHD and we are not sure if he should be
What @Ana said is very valid possibility - our kid had exactly similar pattern, an it was very clearly attrributable to that exact reason (there was identical pattern on non-school days, between "sit and study all days" days off, and "run around and express energy" days off). Getting him to be more active on school days - as well as just getting more used to sitting and focusing - addressed the issue, largely.

comment How to please my girlfriend's stepfather?
P.S. Don't worry about language mistakes. SE is English-only, but very very welcoming to people for whom English is not a first language (such as myself :) - as long as it's clear you made an effort to post a good question (and that is clear in your case :) at worst, people will overlook any language errors, and at best help you by fixing them via edits..

comment How to please my girlfriend's stepfather?
Did you ask the stepfather why he objects? And to what? (e.g. that you're with her? or that you have sex?)

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this isn't about parenting

comment How to help a tomboy not dread puberty
@DanBeale - I agree that's an interesting angle worth exploring, but as Freud said, OTOH, a pre-teen complaining about life may be simply pre-teen being dramatic and feeling life is unfair and NOT necessarily a gender mis-alignment issue.
