    Teens and harsh language in lyrics/literature...

    My view is very simple. Swearing is rude. Its OK within certain context or company, but not in public, not at school, not at home. Its nothing 'grown up' or 'cool' about it. And its not neccessery what you hear from other people

    Pouch Safety child tracking device...

    Yeah, but these electronic tags are not exactly a new thing. Might seem a novelty when you look at it, but in RL they never really kicked off.

    Pouch Safety child tracking device...

    Or... Electronic tags for convicted offenders under house arrest :D How would those prevent a toddler from running into the road? I think there was a Simpsons episode about those, where Bart attaches his to a bird.

    There are time and place to play freely. After my 3yo took off at an airport, i find harness a useful thing. Those techy things via smartphones... Pfff imagine battery dies, gets broken, child falls over and smashes the thing...

    How much do your kids read?...

    My DS2 likes to read, however, DS1 does not. I managed to get him interested in comic books, but thats it

    Daughter cant say no to friends :(...

    Rule no.1 -- don't take things to school/yard/playground which you don't want to share or lose. At that age i was on the opposite end -- if i really fancied something that my friends had that i couldn't, i sort of made clear what sort of birthday present i would like, or come up with some...

    SEXUAL EXPRESSION vs MISOGYNY...

    I think its mysogynistic to suggest that females should be restricted to wear comfortable clothing or pursuing certain activities because they need to be 'protected'.

    What is an appropriate age for boys to.......

    Sorry, but very first post by a brand new user, and its penis related -- seems suspicious. We have this sort of 'jokers' every now and then.

    Waldorf/Steiner methodology...

    I'm not an expert, but it gives kids more freedom, plus bells and whistles of private education. If you can afford it, go for it.

    Waldorf/Steiner methodology...

    Alternative schooling is good, if there is continuity. If a child goes to a 'cool' primary, then has to transfer to a mainstream secondary -- it can be very difficult.

    Is it safe to hand over the credit card to my teenage son?...

    Scars? I'd notify Social Services. Father is a criminal.

    Conspiracy theories and kids...

    Europe and America have different rules for food preservation and packaging. I work in catering related business and food hygiene rules are very strict. You can't even keep out-of-date items in fridges and freezers, and it is illegal to give it away, despite products being totally edible. Waste...

    Do jocks, cheerleaders, and rich kids support Trump?...

    People should stay off internet when not sober.

    Who is right?...

    Guys, seriously. This is a wind-up. As for diamonds, they are a scam, made up only in 20th century. Before they were never seen as valuable, because they're colourless and plain.

    Who is right?...

    Your husband should be buying diamonds for YOU!

    Should they?...

    Good thing - superheroes are usually GOOD guys. Bad thing - when kids' make-believe play gets out of hand.
