comment Paternity test or not
I'm with @user1450877. You are saying that a father should be someone who is in a child's life... yet if the person isn't even told about a child they aren't given that choice at all. Unless the OP explicitly notes that the father was informed AND refused to be a part of child's life, you're passing unwarranted judgement.

comment How do I tell my parents I'm no longer Christian?
@DA01 - them supporting a child is a FAVOR, not a necessity. Therefore, judging their willingness to do what's best for a child based on withholding that favor isn't a logical approach. People cut off support to children for MANY reasons, an doing what is NOT best for the child isn't usually one of them.

@DA01 - They are under no obligation to let an adult (and at 20 you are well past adult) to sponge off of them.

No, I never did. I learned to knock very early in my life, and to respect people's privacy as well.

comment Would switching to a Waldorf kindergarten be worth the potential stress to our active pre-schooler?
true. I didn't mean to imply that sit-in should be a substitute. You should also try to talk to parents as the leave or drop kids off

Most kindergartens where we live allowed parents to actually visit and sit in on a lesson for 1 hr or so as well.

Does La Leche League offer any evidence for that assertion? Scientific studies?

"5 year old granddaughter that mommy and this other woman were naked" - Seems to be enough of a worry no matter what the gender/sexuality of people involved is.

Children don't cause accidents. Accidents cause children.

Shouldn't QUERTY vs DVORAK be a more pressing concern in 2014? :)

comment How can I make noisy toys quieter?
Shouldn't this be migrated to DIY or AV exchange sites? Seems a better chance of expert answer there.

comment How to comfort our infant with fever?
@Joe - I meant breast milk given the 5mo age. According to our pediatrician it's effective.

comment Is it preferable to have “sex talks” vs “all the time education”?
Using "band camp" after 1999 is perhaps not the best analogy in sex education related question :)

comment What should I look for in a crib?
@wardr - no, you judged "people who pwn walmart cribs stifle their child's creativity". Quoting: "Walmart and Ikea destroy creativity. When you have 5,000,000 people all with the same exact crib in their house from Ikea, no matter how neat you think it is, it is in fact just ordinary. Sameness=Ordinary=Lack of creativity"

comment Is there any research on pros/cons of allowing young kids to participate on social online networks?
Would you mind posting highlights/summaries of the research please? Link-only answers are generally considered not a good thing for a variety of reasons on SE.

comment Is there a proper age for a chin up bar?
Don't have research to back this up... but my Dad got me a chin up bar when I was well under 8... and started my kids on the bars (using monkey bars from playset) at like 5-6. They required being held for safety, but that's because of lack of training, not age. Why this matters is that my Dad did a lot of research into physical training before I was born and knew what's safe and not.
