This week’s Podcast Question of the Week is about phones:

How Early is Too Early for a Cell Phone?

No real side issues here, we just want to know what age is appropriate to get a kid a cell phone. With parental controls in modern mobile operating systems, there may be no need for kid-specific phones anymore. Or is there?

So, how early is too early for a cell phone?

This week’s Podcast Question of the Week is about bullying:

What Would You Do If You Suspected Your Child’s Teacher Was a Bully?

We posted Stuart Chaifetz’s story about his autistic son Akian, who was being bullied by his teacher and aides. Poking around comments on Facebook, Chaifetz’s Change.org petition and on Reddit, bullying like this happens more than we know. What do you do if you suspect your child is being bullied by their teacher?

Do you put a wire on your child like Chaifetz did? Do you attempt to solve the issue with the school? Do you confront the teacher with whatever evidence you found?

parenting advice

This week’s Podcast Question of the Week is about assholes advice:

What’s the best single bit of parenting advice you’ve got?

Today, 8BitDad hit 1,000 articles! The 1,000th was about Ben Montgomery of Heroic Fatherhood Development – who listed 10 “Dad Mistakes” on his site. We weren’t about to ask you what your best dad-mistake was, but we’d like to know what the best bit of parenthood advice you’ve got is.

Is it something simple, like “relax”? Something complicated, like how to manage finances? Or is it something that helped get you through a particular stage of parenting – like “don’t look up baby advice on the internet”?

This week’s Podcast Question of the Week is about religion:

How early is too early for serious religion and kids?

With Easter and Passover behind us, we can go back to months of not-talking-about religion. But one couple is talking about religion more than us: the Jarrell family of Tennessee.

As the story goes, Blake and Lauren Jarrell are divorced. Both are Christian, but Blake’s a Methodist and Lauren’s a Presbyterian.

Blake wanted their two children – aged 5 and 7 – to be baptized when they were old enough to understand the significance of the ceremony. Lauren done goofed and had them baptized. So, Blake took her to court. Now, Lauren faces 20 days jailtime and a fine of $100.

This week’s Podcast Question of the Week is about your phones:

What are your favorite apps for your kids?

No matter the age, you can find apps for iOS and Android to entertain your kid. For babies, there are interactive storybooks. For toddlers, there are flashcard word games. For little gamers, there are all sorts of cutesy applications and games for a buck or two – or better yet, free – that will entertain your kid indefinitely.

Do you like drawing apps like DoodleBuddy? Tie-in stuff like Elmo Calls? How about Angry Birds?

Be sure to tell us how old your kids are so that others with kids in that age group can benefit too!

This week’s Podcast Question of the Week is about safety:

Do you ever leave your toddler alone in the car?

This week on Babble, Meredith Carroll discussed the recent outlawing of leaving kids unattended in cars. Carroll admits to leaving her 6 month old baby in the car while she picks her 3 year old up from preschool. As well, many commenters gave their two cents, and came in on both sides of the issue.

Do you leave your kid(s) in an unattended car? Do you have any rules about it? For example – do you only do it if you’re within eyesight of your child? Do you only do it if the car is climate-controlled? Do you only do it if you’re running into a liquor store while your kid sleeps in the back seat?

This week’s Podcast Question of the Week is about cleaning:

Do you have a spring cleaning routine?

This week, @MomCentralChat‘s #momchat questions had to do with spring cleaning. We’re also curious about what normal families do for spring cleaning, if anything.

Do you use spring as the time to overhaul your belongings? Do you use it as the time to scrub away the winter dirt from everything? Do you just clean during the year, so spring cleaning isn’t so overwhelming?

And when you do clean, does your family give certain members certain tasks?

This week’s Podcast Question of the Week is about boobie-juice:

Have you ever tried your wife’s breastmilk?

Funny question, right? We’ve covered breast milk binges before, but we wanted to know if maybe…just maybe, you’ve tried it too.

For some guys, it’s an absolute hands-off thing. For others, it’s a great alternative to coffee creamer. Some guys try it once, giggle and that’s that. Have you tried it? Did you like it?
