  • Should parents refuse to pay for their child’s college if he/she majors in useless stuff?

    Best answer: i really see where you're coming from as a stem major. However, I know some history majors that end up in law school making 6 figs.

    Best answer: i really see where you're coming from as a stem major. However, I know some history majors that end up in law school making 6 figs. If your talking to me about a basic bachelor's in english or psychology, then entering the work force, hell no. Half the people here don't know what they're talking about. My best friend is a psychology major, and she is literally struggling to find a job because psychology is so competitive, as a result, she has to go get a master's if she wants any chance at getting a great job. Mind you she ended with a 3.79 gpa. As for english majors, we already have so many. Additionallly, english is one of those subjects where there is no right or wrong. In History, you can further your career into a lawyer or judge. In stem field, you can become an engineer, doctor, or computer scientist (as long as you work your butt off). In mathematics, you can gain a PhD and become a respectable professor. In english, you can't really do much even as a PhD. My english professor whom I took last semester just got her PhD and laughed her butt off when I asked if she makes $80k annually. I think parents should definitely refuse even if the kids get on some emotional **** because they'll be thanking their parents sooner or later.

  • I found condoms in my dads desk-could they’ve been having sex!?!?

    It can’t be, because I’m 7th grade and my older sister is 16. Theyre 40-something years old probably. I accidentally knocked over a desk and saw the package.When I was younger I asked for another sibling. They said they can’t have anymore. I showed them to my sister and she says they’re legit condoms, no kidding.... show more

I’m a bit freaked out.

    My father never taught me anything. He would drive to work at 5 am every morning, come home and sit in front of the TV his whole-life.

    My father never taught me anything. He would drive to work at 5 am every morning, come home and sit in front of the TV his whole-life. Fast forward: I didn't know what a career was until I was 20 half-way through college. I don't understand why my parents never talked about it at the family dinner-table, nor did the counselors ever ask me about it at school? I even graduated at the top of my class with a 4.2 GPA (all honors). I knew we were supposed to go to college, but I don't think anyone at my high school knew what a life-long career was either. ______ Your thoughts? (we're from Los Angeles, California)

  • Is it okay to take my son's car away as punishment ?

    My son is 17, his dad wouldn't buy him a car when he passed his test. So our son got a job and he bought himself a car, he still has that job now. He mainly pays for his own fuel, sometimes I give him money for fuel but my husband doesn't know that. Anyway his dad takes his car keys when our son breaks... show more
    My son is 17, his dad wouldn't buy him a car when he passed his test. So our son got a job and he bought himself a car, he still has that job now. He mainly pays for his own fuel, sometimes I give him money for fuel but my husband doesn't know that. Anyway his dad takes his car keys when our son breaks curfew or misses church, usually for a week. My son thinks it is unfair because it is his car that he paid for and his dad has no right to take it away. It is a constant argument and I am always stuck in the middle because I think my husband is too strict but I also think my son is too rebellious. What should I do ? Do you think it is a fair punishment?

    men in love with me on the internet an I don't have time to deal with his problems, these is very importent men an they wouldn't understand these things an Max would be an embareassment to them! OMG today I got a call from the school that Max had pooped his pants, he's 16 years old an he was in trouble for something so he just took a crap in his pants to be defient to his teacher! Mr. Brennan says he toots real loud in class an fans it around the room an belches an doesn't do his work an one time he got down on the floor an rolled around like he was having a seizure! This upset me very bad because when I get overly upset I am prone to seizures, for instence when my mom, at Xmas, told me that these men that's in love with me on the internet isn't real, I got so upset I couldn't breathe an I ended up convulsing on the floor an having a seizure because I was so upset. I wanted his father to take full custody cause as soon as I am able to afford to pay there BTA (that's basic travel allowence) one of these men is going to come over to America an marry me. Tim is a male model in England, Olowende is minister of finance at the Bank Of Nigeria an Tim is a buyer from Houston. There all MADLY in love with me but I know that Max would be an embareassment to them. I only agreed to have him because I thought it would keep his asshole father around but it didn't, he started seeing that whore form his work an there married today. Whatever. What can I do about that kid?

  • How can I manage my 2 year old daughter’s tantrums every time we visit the mall?

    There’s a pet store within that mall. She screams, cries, and kicks because we are not willing to get a puppy, period. Not to mention that they come from puppy mills.

    There are almost no jobs available for people with B.As. You always hear about how History and Psychology majors who graduate college and are unemployed. Do you think parents should only pay for college if their kid majors in STEM or business?

Some of them claim to be from a different high school. She doesn’t even know some of them. They’ve seen a few selfies of her and that’s enough to get them convinced. At her age, I feel like she needs to pick her own battles. She isn’t 12, 14, or even 16 anymore... by law, she’s an adult but with the mind of a teen.

    My 11-year-old is a competitive dancer and her hip-hop troupe will be competing at a national level competition in a few weeks time. Very, unfortunately, their dance teachers baby daughter was diagnosed with cancer about a month back. As understanding as all of us parents have been, our kids are missing so much dance training... The training they need if they are going to have any shot at nationals. Their classes are either canceled or they have a different teacher who doesn't even know their choreography. Their actual teacher will only see them about once a week... This is a hard situation, I am extremely sympathetic to her circumstances, she's going through every parent's worst nightmare! But at the same time, this isn't fair on the kids. She doesn't want to stand down and let another teacher take over, but also can't commit to being at the classes. I have been speaking to a few of the other mums from the troupe and they are deciding whether or not to speak to the studio owner about it... We can't decide whether this is a good idea or not. Do we leave the situation as is or do we say something?

Are you so insecure that you have to control every tiny thing about their life?

    Friends have told me that the things my dad say are verbal and/or emotional abuse. At least once a day he complains about how I m not doing a good enough job, either with school or even how I spent my free time. Things like me getting a haircut, or wearing too many t-shirts. When I say he s overreacting, he yells at me. More recently we got into an argument over me eating too quickly, and he s taken away everything he knows I enjoy (computers, makeup, some clothes, the phone) just because I said I didn t think it was a problem. I ve been told multiple times that my feelings don t matter, because he s the parent and I m the child, so I just have to suck it up and shut up. I don t go to school since I m homeschooled, and I rarely leave the house without my parents with me. It s starting to wear down on me (I m pretty sure I m getting depression and depersonalization from it), and I m not sure what to do, because I don t have any close friends that I can really talk to about it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • Should I, as a parent, get involved if my freshman daughter said that the seniors are “bossy” at school?

    My 14 year old did nothing wrong and they’re not specifically targeting her. She does make it sound like the seniors can be snobby and like to test the freshmen.

    My 14 year old did nothing wrong and they’re not specifically targeting her. She does make it sound like the seniors can be snobby and like to test the freshmen. I always look out for my child, but teach her how to cope on her own. So far, there’s been pranks on the freshmen this year. School finishes in June so it’s almost over anyways. Since it’s not a result of one’s actions, I’m guessing that it’s the maturity difference. Some of them find it annoying to be in the same building as the 9th graders. They intimidate my daughter’s grade by being a little bossy sometimes. Though I’m not there when she’s at school, should I really engage in a conversation like this?

    My sons live with their father, his wife and their baby. They moved in with their dad because I had to relocate for work and I didn’t want to have to pull them out of school away from their friends and family, plus their dad was threatening to go for full custody if I took them away. When they first moved in with their dad, they called their stepmum by her nickname, Emmy opposed to her actual name. When she had the baby, they started calling her mum around the baby so not to confuse the baby. I wasn’t super comfortable with this because I didn’t like the idea of them calling someone else mum. Now the baby is nearly 2 years old, they constantly call her mum. My eldest posted a picture online recently of them with her for her birthday and called her mum in the caption. When I spoke to him about it, he didn’t seem bothered that he had hurt my feelings. To him, his stepmum has been more of a mum to them because she’s always there for them, I tried explaining that I’ve been trying to do what’s best for them but he wasn’t listening. When I spoke to my ex, he told me it was their choice to call her mum and they had no influence in it and that his wife had repeatedly asked them to call her Emmy because she didn’t want to tread on my toes.

    Its great that you recognize that you are not in a good place to have kids though. Continue with school before starting a family.
