comment 30 year old granddaugter in lesbian relationship and I was told about this by her 5 year old child
"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.

comment Writing from the bottom up
Shouldn't QUERTY vs DVORAK be a more pressing concern in 2014? :)

@Beofett - it would if you were in Soviet Russia :)

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.

comment What are the steps parents of an introverted teenager can take to help him to socialize with girls?
"Get a job that includes customer service" - I'm uncertain of the validity of that specific bullet point, to be honest. Having been an introverted teen, I can attest that a customer service job (PC help desk in my case) doesn't really help getting more comfortable with people.

comment What are the steps parents of an introverted teenager can take to help him to socialize with girls?
This question brought to you by my asking the parents of a friend "what parenting issues did you face when raising him?"

comment How should I handle an 8 year old lawyering and quibbling?
@gerrit - there's a difference between unclear communication, and a crystal clear communication that has loopholes (understood by EVERYONE involved to be accidental loopholes)

@Noah - I'm not an expert but I recall that there are explicitly child-centric social sites. I didn't mean Facebook necessarily.

comment Is there any research on pros/cons of allowing young kids to participate on social online networks?
@Noah - Yes, that would be a safe assumption to make. But with 100% full access and monitoring by the parent to that account, perhaps realitime

@AdamDavis - that's why I said "flesh out". I assume you have some research to back that up

Good point! I always try to avoid lawyering out when dealing with the kids. I'm well aware of the consequences of bad example setting :)
