I have been reading a few questions and it has occurred to me that there already a number of different answers depending on which country you live in. I can see many other potential questions on topics such as schooling, health care, legal matters, etc. that would have differing answers depending on the asker's country.

I think adding the askers location to their OP may help with this. This would just be on the Parenting site.

  • It's also already caused some confusion with terminology.

I don't expect that parenting.SE will be modified to show location information. Instead, we can focus on the content:

  • For every question where location is relevant, ask the author to specify it.
  • For every question where the child's age is relevant, ask the author to specify it.

Over time, we can hope that most questions will reflect location and/or age, and new users will see this and write their questions in a similar matter.

Perhaps it's just me, having lived in so many countries, but I have the impression that location is most often omitted by North-American users; the rest of the world is aware of the fact that the world is not just American, that there are other countries that might be completely different, that the "world series" should imply more than one or two countries. Oops, sorry. Please don't flame me.
