comment to what degree should I encourage contact with dad?
Hi ann, and welcome to the site. Can you reformat that a bit to be more readable, paragraphs (you have to hit enter twice to get a paragraph) and such?

comment Actual date of conception
I always assumed that they used that date because it was something people (usually) knew - they don't know ovulation unless they're using tests, but even a hundred years ago people could most often tell the date of their last menses. But for someone with PCOS, I'd be curious if the date of last menses is actually relevant, or if they figure out a better result.

If you're looking for legal advice, you should consult a lawyer; we're neither the right people for that nor are we allowed to offer legal advice.

comment Is there an effective method for cleaning butts?
@anongoodnurse Hmm. Reading this link from your search it sounds like it's sort of "maybe" - I wonder if they've done any research to find exactly what ingredients are dangerous.

If by hand shower thing you mean a shower hose (often come attached to the main shower head and can be taken off and sprayed about), those are a great investment with kids. My three year old used it to clean himself off from poopy accidents.

In case it's not clear, edit added the detail of age - around 1 year old, cannot stand yet.

comment BiggestbChallenge encountered when taking a cruise with kids ages 5-17
@Erica Right now it's an invitation to discussion question, which is why I think it should be closed/on hold (until improved). There's no problem to solve.

I suggest you read our help center, as this isn't a good fit for the site at the moment. This is not a discussion site, but a Q&A site where we aim to help people with their specific real-world problems. If you are planning to take a cruise with your children, and want specific advice, please provide that information - if you do have kids 5-17, then number and distribution at least.

comment BiggestbChallenge encountered when taking a cruise with kids ages 5-17
Hi, welcome to the site. This question is definitely too broad as it stands. Can you at least narrow down what ages your children are, and what kind of cruse you're taking? On boat entire time, on/off every day, etc.? Disney Cruise or similar kid-focused, or adult-primary?

Hi, and welcome to the site. I'm not sure exactly what the question is here; while we're more than willing to help with specific problems, this seems too general. Are you concerned about his mental health? What steps have you taken?

Hmm. Didn't know that. Thanks.

comment As a stranger how do I deal with teenagers misbehaving or being a nuisance in public
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this question is not related to parenting. Perhaps worded differently there could be a question here - in particular if the question wanted to know about a parent's perspective - but as it stands it's not parenting in any way.

comment How to effectively balance respect for authority with independence and self-determination
What you say is, to some extent, reasonable, and largely what I believe; but I'm not entirely sure how to turn this into an actionable solution. Even as an adult it's hard for me to do what you suggest - in large part because it's hard to tell why an authority is making a request.

Sorry, but I asked how to do this, not whether we should.

Showers definitely work well for babies who like them - they're easy to do if the baby likes them, as long as you keep them warm.
