You can't just put them out the door and tell them good luck, but  you do have options. Keep in mind that the laws and regulations  vary from state to state, so you will have to check in your state  for specifics.   Don't put them out because you are angry. Whatever they did, let  yourself...

If the child is still very young, using names for their body parts  or pointing to them and using the proper names, and saying "No one  touches these areas without your permission." Modeling this by  asking when bathing is a great step.   With older children, teaching proper boundaries and...
This purely matters on your location. If your in America this varies state by state. Also how responsible the 13 year old is does not effect the legality of it. Age based laws are purely based on age. The only exception to that is if the child is handicapped in some way that would certainly prevent...

It is neither legal nor safe. All 50 states have child restraint laws. The reason for these laws is concern for and an effort to keep children safe in a motor vehicle.
No, you shouldn't get a ticket if no child is in a car seat as long as no child that requires to be in one is in the car.
== Legal Age ==   The age at which a child can be left at home alone is only legislated in two states, Maryland and Illinois. The legal check is whether or not the child is safe and has the ability to take care of themselves. Most authorities agree that leaving a 12 year old alone at home for an...

== Answer ==     Some teenagers will use anything to get high. I just heard that some of the kids in British Columbia, Canada are drying and smoking a plant we grow here in our gardens called 'Salvia.' Blew my socks off! (please note that salvia is a psychedelic tool, not a "cheap high." it...
Unless there is a reason not to the child is returned to its parent or guardian. In many countries Social Services (child protection ) get involved to ascertain the reason for the child's actions
yes because it holds you back so you dont go flyng forward when you have to stop unexpectedly. Also, in a bad enough accident the belt across the waist can cut into your stomach. This has happened.

The kids aren't out on the road late when there are drunks out there or when they might fall asleep at the wheel. Con's: The kids can just act bad earlier. Kids may feel left...

I dont understand the question. but I guess you want to know why kids under 12 have to sit in back. Simply because the airbag is not made for their small bodies. This is a general age as the average height/weight of a 12yr old boy is Optimal Height4 ft 5 inches Optimal Weight83.6 lbs If you are...
It is always legal to tell the truth; you can only be stopped from publishing the book if it can be shown to contain lies.
Yes and no. That is, babies ribs are more flexible than those of an older child or adult. Otherwise, simply being born would break them. They don't typically fracture apart like ours (adults) would, instead they do what is called a 'greenstick fracture', which is similar to the way a small green...

am i correct in that your question is how to raise up a child in a good way? I know the answer to that one. Raise up any child in the knowledge that God IS and God loves him/her. Find a Bible church who has children/youth groups to asist you. All through the earliest days of a child's life he/she...
No.   Another opinion:I think that its up to the parents to choose how they will raise their children. However I would be very "hands off" of my children when I believe they can act on their own. When I'm asked for the first time if they can go to "that party" or on a date I won't hesitate to say...

20 lb It might be different if the car seat is bigger or smaller

Yes. A car or vehicle is a dangerous place to leave a child unattended. The risk of accident, not to mention neglect, is too great.
Well it depends, sometimes the parents are dumber than the child, and other times it's switched around. A child can learn as much as they want to, and shouldn't be constrained just because they are a child.
Yes, Ruby Bridges had three siblings. They were Micheal Bridges ,  Malcolm Bridges, and Joana Bridges.
