** Likely out-of-universe explanation: They wanted Freeza to be in his natural form because it's his most recognizable/iconic appearance.

*** Garlic Junior ''isn't'' a Namekian, he's a demon from the Makyo Star.

**** It was more likely that it was simply a cooldown/recharge period for the dragon balls themselves. Sure, they are mystical artefacts, but they don't have limiteless power to be used over and over in the span of a week. They need time to regain the energy, and their stone-ball form is a way to enforce that. It takes a year for the Earth Dragon Balls to recharge, the Namekian Dragon Balls were simply more power-efficient.

**** The general impression you get from any of her scenes, is that ChiChi wants her family life to be as "normal" as possible. Not to avoid other people talking, but simply because that's what she wants.

**** Teaching Chi Chi to fly would be a bit pointless, everybody in her family can carry her with ease. Even though it's never stated I thought the reason Goku's DL was important was because shopping. Most DBZ characters don't have any telekinesis. Goku might be able to carry the entire supermarket back to his house but assuming you didn't want your eggs broken and your cans crushed how well would Goku fare with a dozen bags of groceries?

** I think, and correct me if I'm wrong, but if a Saiyan, or any other warrior, have their guard down, they're vulnerable to attacks. Case in point, Gohan wasn't in 'fight mode' like he was with the Saiyans, Frieza's mooks, and Frieza himself. He wasn't expecting any attack coming his way when he's in his own home studying. As for why Gohan didn't send his tutor flying? Well, he probably didn't want to upset his mother by attacking his tutor.

*** He could easily have entered fight mode however and mostly ignored the tutor. Since nobody uses conventional weapons in DBZ it's hard to gauge for sure but given Raditz could catch bullets I think post Frieza saga Gohan could probably just ignore small arms fire and a pathetic human with a ruler? At worst after the first blow it should have been something like a man trying to break down a bunker with a broomstick.

** She clearly wants Goku to be more a "normal" human being. Normal people drive.

*** The issue here is that one year is clearly arbitrary. The Namekian balls recharge after six months because that's how long a Namekian year lasts apparently. That was true even when the Dragon Balls of Namek were reactivated on Earth after Guru passed. So what, if anything, is it actually tied to?
