Ask MetaFilter as parenting aid

We had a very enjoyable dinnertime conversation tonight with our 8-year-old about the Ask MeFi question about the college student whose friend spilled water on her laptop and killed it. It was really great to say, "OK, here's an interesting ethical question, what do you think she should do? What does Mommy think? What does Daddy think?" And then we talked about the various answers people gave, and how we felt about them, and the whole thing was great. It made me want to make this a regular dinnertime feature! MeFi parents, do you use MetaFilter as a teaching or parenting tool, and if so how?

Help find an askme: a system for keeping track of young kids at a party?

A while ago, someone posted a question asking for help working out a system of keeping track of fairly young kids at a party or gathering. I can't find it. [more inside]

Indoctrinating the Next Generation

While the recent Mefite baby boom is wonderful (and adorable), I thought everyone might like to know that the slightly-older Hive-Spawn are progressing nicely, too:

Me: "Gee, Lil' Thumbscrew, I'm not really sure about [weird question involving the LD50 of gummie vitamins."
Lil' Thumbscrew, Aged Seven: "ASK METAFILTER!"

That is all.

Woah

This post turned into a clusterf*** of individual stereotyping and talking about the education levels of posters' kids (negatively). Let me just say: woah. [more inside]

Making an AskMe anonymous after the fact?

This comment on this AskMe made me wonder - would it be possible to make an AskMe question anonymous after it had already been posted?

Askme history: that thread with the indie playlist for the playground set.

I'm searching for an old AskMe thread where the OP requested a list of indie-rock/indie-pop music that would be good for children. I've already searched tags and AskMe search for various combinations of the terms "kids", "children" "indie" "music" and "playlist" and have not come up with the thread I am remembering. It was not the ice-cream-social thread or the hip-hop for a 10-year-old thread. I seem to recall it was from about 1-2 years ago.
