How do you seduce my newly married teacher?

YOU don't ! First of all, the teacher is married - leave them alone ! Second, a teacher/student relationship will likely lose them their job ! Thirdly, since you're obviously a child - the teacher could land themselves in court (but you would get away scott-free) ! Leave the teacher alone to do their job !

Can a 11 year child home alone in Ontario?

Yes. There is actually no age definitions in Ontario for a child to be left alone. A child can be left alone if they have the maturity to be able to handle it. This directly from CAS. However, they aren't to be left overnight alone only for short times during daylight hours. Their website states: At what age can a child be left home alone? The Child and Family Services Act does not identify an age when a child can be left alone, or an age at which a child can supervise or babysit other children. The Act recognizes that age alone is not a sufficient safeguard for the supervision of children. The Act says that a person who has charge of a child less than 16 years of age cannot leave the child without making provision for his/her care or supervision that is reasonable under the circumstances. Anyone who contravenes this provision is guilty of a provincial offence and if convicted is liable to a fine of up to $1,000 and/or imprisonment of up to a year. In addition, the Criminal Code of Canada includes the offence of abandoning a child. Everyone who unlawfully abandons or exposes a child who is under the age of 10 years, so that its life is or is likely to be endangered, or its health is or is likely to be permanently injured is guilty of an offence that carries a penalty of imprisonment of not more than two years. If you're unsure as to whether it's okay to leave your child home alone, please consult with your local Children's Aid Society -- you don't have to give your name, or any identifying information.

What age should a child take a bath by itself?

Every child is different in maturing so there is no 'age' specification. I'm not really sure if your question is stating that another child/sibling is taking a bath with this child. If so, I think you can tell by the child, or just ask if they feel they should be bathing alone.

How do you handle a person in a manic state of mind?

Well, if there arent already, you get them to a doctor for care. After that then you do what you can without if being too much of a burden on just you alone and live your own life. Unless they are a child or elderly or handicap, you shouldn't take on this responsibility alone. Get some others in the family or friend circle involved. Remember it takes a village.
