Here's a recent question that was off-topic as it was worded originally:
My Homeroom teacher change my seat because my ugly math teacher complain to my homeroom teacher that I was always talking during class time. I can't study I feel stress and my new partner is boy.
I've made an edit, that I think makes it on-topic:
The homeroom teacher changed the seating assignment for my child, because one of their other teachers complained to their homeroom teacher that my child was always talking during class time.
My student now feels stressed out, is having difficulty with studying, and isn't comfortable with now having a boy partner.
How can I help my student make the best out of this situation?
Which made me think about the types of questions we allow. I remember having similar questions, worded from the child's perspective, as being address as not on-topic, as they weren't about parenting. I can't find the examples right now because I don't remember their subjects.
But, in some cases the answers or advice we'd give would be essentially the same, aside from some semantics.
We do have plenty of questions from children of varying ages asking about how to handle situations with their parents. They're generally considered on-topic.
However, in this case, the original question involved no mention of parents. It did involve a situation that many parents might hear about at home, and want to help their child with. I know that I personally complained about seating assignments many times throughout school.
So, should we allow these questions as-is (with necessary quality improvements), where the advice we'd give to the parent could be pretty much the same as we'd give to the child directly?
