When (re-)tagging questions, I sometimes have a hard time finding appropriate tags and wonder if the existing ones are sufficient. Hence I want to discuss two possible tags that might come in very handy. Also feel free to suggest better names for the tags, they are not set in stone.
There is currently no good tag for parenting situations in which the involved parties are neither related to each other (parents, mother, father, siblings, grandparents, family, extended-family) nor in some sort of legal relationship (adoption, step-parents, foster-parenting, blended-family). Special cases are teachers and babysitting.
Quite common are questions by people in a relationship, in which at least one of them has own children, but they are not married. In this case, blended-family doesn't really fit. It might also be about other people's children, e. g. your child's friends (in your house), or just some children outside you may not even know. We do allow these questions, but we can't really capture the relationship between adult and child with a tag.
I just give a few examples. There are more, but it's not easy to find them all through search easily.
- A stranger's child throws a piece of garbage onto the ground, out of sight of their parents. Should I say or do anything?
- How to support a 7-year-old who is behind in school for reasons other than intellectual and learning disability?
- Uncontrollable child
- Discipline and how to properly address a 7yr old with behavior/stubbornness & crying for everything
- Topics for kids for moving in with girlfriend and kids
Do you think it would make sense to have another tag for this special kind of parenting relationship?
If you search for questions containg the word "biting" you get 60 results.
Reading questions here on Parenting.SE, it becomes clear that biting is very important - it also makes sense, since it's a very easy way of inflicting damage.
Now, not all these questions are about biting as a way of being violent towards others, but also about biting food.
Do we need a tag about biting? And if so, should it cover every kind of biting, or just be about violence (or about biting food) etc.?
