If parents showed more of themselves, would kids develop better, healthier coping skills?
Yes. I believe the parents simply are/must be the primary source of coping skills. Otherwise, you'll see kids copying what their friends use as coping mechanisms. As a parent, your children will realize your imperfections when they grow up. They'll either imitate them or try to be far from your example. It is all a matter of giving them the right set of morals in childhood to work with in young/adulthood. In doing this, the child filters what is good from the people they meet, and choose the right people to be with. Because, I can meet your five closest friends and already know who you are and even guess your mechanisms. The parents' presence will make all the difference. And the effects and symptoms of bad parenting show up in adulthood. Each family dinner(activity) will make a difference. I believe you are right that being open and having a close relationship with your kids does equip them well. Just.. you know... equip them with the right skills. (Don't teach em to get a pack of smokes. =.=") As someone who doesn't have children, I don't know diapers. But as a child, I do know a bunch of things my parents could have done differently. It falls upon me to correct the imperfections they passed on to me. But I am thankful they did their best. (I'm sure every parent does.) And I am even more thankful that all their efforts made me turn out fine. Actually, you could look into your own history. Were your parents always there to learn from? What kind of skills did you acquire with/without them? I hope I helped(even if its just a little bit). :D

Dalia Mogahed: The attitudes that sparked Arab Spring
Majority of the Islamic scholars say that to "hit them" means to tap them a little on the shoulder just to get their attention. Narrations of the Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) all agree that he(the model for every muslim) has never hit anyone his entire life except when at war. And the code of Combative Jihad explicitly prohibits harming women and children. Be careful, because reading the translations of the Qur'an is far from reading the Qur'an. The Qur'an is not regarded as a just a Holy scripture but Divine truth in Arabic. God, specifically revealed it in Arabic because no other language could contain its meaning. Thus, each word might mean a million meanings and translating them into English shaves off a considerable amount of them. The meanings of the Qur'an range from simple instructions to words that only you can understand because they are there(destined) for you. The Islamic scholars are not there to provide biased interpretations but just to interpret. Because pondering over words that are beyond human understanding is kind of a full time job. They don't convene on what is canon or not. They individually ponder(takes years) over verses, double check with narrations of what the Prophet(PBUH) did, and then give an interpretation. And what the majority of scholars say is what muslims accept as truth. The translations are there to get new muslims started on divine truth And then there's the people who copy and paste stuff and give their interpretations in a split-second. If you don't wanna accept the opinion of a "biased" Islamic scholar: 1. Lear... no Master Arabic (Old proper ancient arabic not street gibberish) 2. Learn the Narrations of "what this Muhammad guy did". (Hadeeth) 3. Learn the Context and History of the Verses (Seerah) Then, maybe, you might be qualified to just open the book. The Qur'an baffled the ancient arabs(even linguists and poets) when it was first revealed. How can I let you tell other people what my God says? You're not qualified.

Connect humankind on a forward trajectory of dreams & desires... with one simple idea....
I agree. The world has to unite under a single idea. It has to be simple enough that everyone can understand it. It has to be universal enough that everybody should be willing to push through with it. It also has to be politically colorless enough that it cannot be accused of serving only the interests of one part of the world because it serves every part of the world. All that's left is to think of a lot of ways to put this idea then work can begin. That idea should bring benefit and prevent harm.

Religion in third world development.
I agree. Community groups don't have to be religious. But, religious groups are comprised of people and they do have the resources to help. People power means utilizing all the people along with all their resources. Religious groups can help, they can do their converting business later, but first and foremost, let them help too if they can. I suggest bringing in more than one religious group to help so that they must ensure economic stability before they can pursue their religious agendas. And mind you that religious groups mostly do put first social welfare before conversion.

What is happiness?
I agree. It is a feeling comes from within. Yes, I know, sometimes material things do bring some of this out, but it doesn't mean that it should go when material things are gone.. "Be happy." A popular phrase. But let's think about what it suggests. It suggests that you are in control of happiness. You "can be happy".

What is the most important or impressionable thing when you meet a new person for the first time?
I think body language does make a difference but I really get the first impression from a person when he/she starts to talk. It's the tone. It's all about what he/she's saying, what he/she's implying and what he/she means. It's also the greeting he/she uses and how he/she talks about him/herself. And then I think about how good this person may be in hiding his /her true self. It's all complicated when you think about it but it all happens in an instant when you meet the person. Just my opinion, I'm no expert at this.

If you could achieve your dreams would you ever want to sleep?
It's funny that you've started this conversation. This is because personally, I hate sleeping. It may be funny but I think sleeping is a waste of time and that I'm missing a lot by doing it. I think that I would do On the other hand, I think sleeping is the time you get to sum up everything that happened during the day. I'm no expert in the field of sleep, but I think I'd go crazy without it. Just my personal input.

What color is your childhood? What color do you see your present? And your future.
When I was a kid I would be indoors during class hours and would only remember the afternoon. As a kid I would see the world in the YELLOW afternoon shade of the sun. Now as a college student, I have a lot of vacant times during mid-day Today I see the world in a SKY BLUE light. Just because I am able to see the noon sun more often now. I imagine that I will be looking at a world in MIDNIGHT BLACK sprinkled with CITY LIGHTS because my dream job would take all day and leave me free at night. If I ever grow old, I imagine myself seeing the GRAY fog of the my hometown and the GREEN vegetation of the mountains there.

What makes an idea spread? Duration? Quality? Loudness?
I do like to believe that loudness and quality are relative. If it isn't intended for that particular neuron or muscle, then I doubt it would be loud or high quality enough. I believe this to be true in the real world also. If news hits me and I don't care about it or I can't do anything about it from where I am, then it wouldn't be as loud to me as it would be to someone who is nearer or someone who can do anything about it. If I were to move my finger, signals are sent to those particular muscles and even if they reach my muscles for moving my toes, it wouldn't move them because the signal wouldn't be loud enough.
