• Pretty soft middle name for Athena?

    My daughter will have two middle names. I need something to go with Athena and Rose. I plan to use rose as the second middle name. (Athena ____ Rose) Looking for something feminine and something to put the name together nicely :)

  • How do you talk to your kids about "bad" words?

    I'm just asking since I'm planning on having kids. I know that young children shouldn't be using swear words. But I'm just wondering how exactly I should teach them about this.

    I'm just asking since I'm planning on having kids. I know that young children shouldn't be using swear words. But I'm just wondering how exactly I should teach them about this. I don't have an issue with swearing whatsoever. Using these words don't make you a terrible person. They're just words. As a matter of fact, my favorite poet (Shane Koyczan) uses swear words A LOT in his works and I'll never stop loving him. As a matter of fact, the swearing often makes his poems SOUND BETTER. Basically, when I have children and they find out about swear words, I don't want to just tell them: "Those are bad words, you shouldn't say them" because that would make me a bit hypocritical with my views on swear words. I'm thinking about saying to them "those words aren't appropriate for your age" or something along those lines. I honestly have no idea. How do YOU teach kids about "bad" words?

  • My little girl is a spoiled brat?

    My 15 year old daughter has a perfectly good Nokia phone and she asked for the iPhone 5 for Christmas, she is also saying all her friends have the iPhone 7 or 8 plus. Honestly she thinks I'm made of money. She wants Instagram and Snapchat on her iPad but I've already told her, it's for studying only.... show more
    My 15 year old daughter has a perfectly good Nokia phone and she asked for the iPhone 5 for Christmas, she is also saying all her friends have the iPhone 7 or 8 plus. Honestly she thinks I'm made of money. She wants Instagram and Snapchat on her iPad but I've already told her, it's for studying only. She is friends with juvinile delinquins who go out without adults, use social media, wear makeup and listen to pop music. She really wants to do these things, but I think social media is unsuitable for under eighteens, pop music is offensive and inappropriate. Last week, for her birthday her friend got her a tube of lip gloss, my child kept saying "Mom it's just clear lip gloss! I'm not gonna die!" honestly, she is so rude and cheeky. She clains she is depressed and "has no life" but she needs to accept this or move out. She is very spoiled and ungrateful, what should I do about this?

    I am 15 years old ad my mother is refusing to do my laundry and she will not let me do my own laundry. She says she is doing it because I neve put my laundry away so it is a waste of electricity. It is true that I often did not put my laundry away because I am really busy but it is not like I just put clean clothes back into the dirty laundry. I wore them and them. But now I have no clean laundry so I dont know what she expects me to do. I ask her if I can do my laundry or if she can do it and she says "once you start putting your laundry away you can have clean clothes" but theres nothing to put away!!! This is ridiculous and completely out of hand. I dont even have any clean uderwear anymore!!! What should I do?

Whenever he catches him playing with them, he takes them from him and hide them. Our son starts crying and screaming because he wants to play with them. My husband tells him, "Barbie dolls are for girls!". I try to tell my husband to let him play with what he wants. He says, "I don't want him growing up to be a sissy. He needs to play with his trucks and action figures." Do you guys think my husband is being ridiculous?

  • Thoughts on the name Ame (ah-meh/may)?

    Ame is Japanese for rain. I love the sound of Ame but I’m worried the spelling can make people think my son could be pronounced as Amy..

  • How long should I wait until I tell my children the "Secret" about Santa?

    Best answer: I would say until they start questioning you. Almost always will a child ask you about it when they are young so I don't think you have to worry about them getting older and older and still believing. But in the end it's up tp you.
