According to the help center, legal issues are off-topic. Of the 13 questions, 5 have been closed.

If you are looking for a parenting approach, seems unnecessary. If not, is the question really on topic? Especially considering that there is Law.SE? A tag like is only necessary for questions about legality of something, but should this be our focus? Note that there are already tags that touch upon law or legal issues, like or and they may already be sufficient.

The only question I found where it seems appropriate is a list-type of question that's a bad fit for the SE model anyway. And a broader tag, that's applicable to more questions, may be better for such cases.

It looks a bit like a meta tag to me and I'm not sure what it's trying to say. If it's about how to comfort someone, it should rather be . But it seems easier and more convenient to tag it with the goal instead, e. g. the often used .

The only question where seems appropriate could do very well without it and instead.

For sports, we already have tag and if it's about children learning how to walk, there's . Instead, seems overly specific and was therefore seldomly used. The older two questions actually can do without that tag and I would add instead, while the newest one may need neither nor , but instead.

What do you think about these tags? Are they needed or not?

I hate to be so wishy-washy, but I don't want you to think your question is being ignored. So...

I agree that legal is off topic, but if we destroy it, it will come back like a noxious weed (or a not-noxious one.) I think those should either be closed or migrated.

'How to comfort' questions aren't always apparent to the OP as involving emotional well being, so I'd say 'comforting' is a good alternative.

Running can be a sport or a misbehavior, and it could be a milestone as well. I can imagine someone asking a milestone question about running. Maybe an edit for running asking that if it's about a milestone, use milestone instead? Otherwise I see no other need for running.

  • Legal: They are too old to be migrated. I looked at the open ones and, except for 1 and 2, it seemingly could be removed without impairing the questions. Comfort: I see 2 questions, 3 and 4, for which comforting would be appropriate (I added comfort to 4). Running: I agree about the milestones but there's so far no question about it (the oldest is about a fun experience). Commented Nov 4, 2018 at 14:04
