Can they make "fun" adult diapers?

Can they make "fun" adult diapers?

Not yet...: Haven't seen any exciting colors or prints on adult-sized diapers. Only the kid's diapers and pull-ups have the designs and prints on them. Seems like this is a "new product" opportunity for someone to bring to market. ...Read more

Is a teen boy mature enough to travel along 9000 miles?

Is a teen boy mature enough to travel along 9000 miles?

Depends upon Boy: Solo travel is a complicated issue. Factors to include are the maturity (not necessarily age) of the teen, mode of travel (one or two flights or many flights?). Has the teen traveled much in the past? Traveled solo for shorter distance in past? Who will meet him at destination? Is the destination politically stable? Review with your son how to handle problems such as delays or missed flights. ...Read more

11 years old, he is right at 5' 2.75" tall and weighs 150 lbs. He is stocky. he's very athletic in 3 sports. What do you think his adult height will b?

11 years old, he is right at 5' 2.75" tall and weighs 150 lbs. He is stocky. he's very athletic in 3 sports. What do you think his adult height will b?

The most usual: height predictor is done by pediatricians when the baby is 2: double his height at age 2! Other estimators use a calculator taking into account the parent's heights: add the mother's and father's height together, add 5 inches, divide by 2. This is purported to reliably give a result within 4 inches of what will really happen. That's about the best GUESS I can give you. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Do teen pregnancy statistics mix the 18-19 yr old adults with the 16-17 year olds?

Do teen pregnancy statistics mix the 18-19 yr old adults with the 16-17 year olds?

Good question: It depends which studies you are looking at. Most will define it as less than 19 years old. By changing the definition though to an earlier age the statistics will obviously change. Most news stories do not usually clarify that. For accurate numbers go to the national campaign to prevent teen pregnancy website. They are a well funded nonpartisan group with accurate information. ...Read more

Is 65 degrees inside the house too cold for a 6 year old child with asthma?

Probably not: If you and your child are appropriately dressed and not too cold at 65 degrees then there is no problem. Cold air doesn't predispose to "colds" and cold air induced asthma usually requires lower temperatures. ...Read more

If a 7 alomst 8 year old boy touches a 4 almost 5 year old boys penis is it sexual abuse or normal kid stuff? Is the 7 old enough to know better?

If a 7 alomst 8 year old boy touches a 4 almost 5 year old boys penis is it sexual abuse or normal kid stuff? Is the 7 old enough to know better?

I call abusive: Such interaction between age equivalent kids is "exploration" & i can accept as much as 2 years age difference into that idea. Beyond that and specifically for the 7-8 yo who is old enough to know right from wrong on these issues it is abuse & often reveals a past abuse of the older kid.Size & intimidation is also an issue when the 60 lb 7-8 yo is doing this with a 40+lb 4-5 yo. ...Read more

Do airlines allow an 11 day old infant to fly?

Do airlines allow an 11 day old infant to fly?

Call the airline: A private company can set up any restriction it wants (within reason). During my Navy years at an overseas duty station I routinely discharged mom/baby to a van that took them to an airport to fly back to the states. There was no problem at that point getting tickets or with the baby, but I would call ahead or search for info online from the airline. ...Read more
