has received a VTC for being "off topic" because:
Other: This is not a parenting question. It's a psychology question. It won't make us better parents (as it is stated right now), it will only satisfy somebody's curiosity.
Whereas the on topic section of the help center states:
We welcome questions on topics like these:
- matters of upbringing,
- safety considerations,
- food and feeding,
- health and hygiene,
- development and growth,
- language development,
- behavior and social skills,
- discipline and punishment,
- childrens'/family games for developmental purposes or parental sanity.
I would contend that psychology and sociology based questions and answers regarding information relevant to parents is very good, because our topics can tend toward subjectivity, when not all parenting outcomes are subjective.
I think some of our great answers also tend to rely heavily on science and facts. Sociology and psychology are also sciences, and so I don't think they should be discounted when accurate medical information is highly regarded.
I also think a lot of our answers tend to use psychology and sociology, but not the terminology of those sciences.
