    What to do when a baby cries the whole night
    What to do if a teen is constantly angry
    What to do if your child is autistic

    You can use various options in the title of the article - What to when.../What to do if.../What to do during.../What to do to.../What to do at a time when.../What to do after... etc. You can also put the word parent, parents, parenting if required.

    I have a few questions -

    What happens if I am working on an article and someone else posts an article on the same topic, with identical information, before I can post mine? The whole effort is lost. Can blocking of one topic, at a time, be considered?

    Any chance of extending the date for this contest?

    Don't worry about submitting an article on the same topic as of another member. The Webmasters have said that for a contest we can accept up to two articles on the same topic since the perspective and presentation of the two authors will be different, even considering the fact the same advice and tips would be given.

    Yes, we were planning to extend the closing date by a few more days since there seems to be a poor response so far and, perhaps, extending the date will help to bring in better participation. We will put in the fresh closing date in the announcement.
