    He is fifteen and he has always bullied his step brother my son(who I love more than anything) mostly because my son is gay. My son is thirteen anyway I was alone with my step son and I was angry over the way he treats his step brother so I said that I don't like him that I tolerated him and if it were up to me I'd thrown him out on the street and he did something I never expected he cried and ran off. I later found gay porn in his bed room I confronted him and he broke down he begged me not to tell his dad that he was gay he said that his step brother was lucky because at least he has someone who loves and accepts him and I really did not expect this I've always had a negative opinion of him and he spent two hours crying in my arms. I just don't know what to do. I mean his father my husband is homophobic but he's gotten better in recent times. I've just never seen my step son like this he was groveling actually groveling and begging me not to tell his father what should I do?

  • How do I stop masurbating every time I go to study?

    Best answer: Gonna be honest here, I had a little bit of the same problem when I had huge papers or exams due in the morning. You are turning to masturbating as a method to waste time/avoid your work as part of procrastinating. For some people, it's YouTube or Netflix, for you and me, masturbating.

    Best answer: Gonna be honest here, I had a little bit of the same problem when I had huge papers or exams due in the morning. You are turning to masturbating as a method to waste time/avoid your work as part of procrastinating. For some people, it's YouTube or Netflix, for you and me, masturbating. I personally had to actively decide to stop when I had work to do and face my deadlines, but if you feel that you cannot physically stop yourself, please go talk to campus mental help services. It sounds strange and may feel embarrassing, but grades are immensely important, and their services are there meaning to help students with problems like this (procrastination, no different than Netflix, remember?).
    If there are no campus mental help services, look into finding your own professional or asking friends/family to help. You don't have to tell them about the method of your procrastination, but having them in the room while you study makes it difficult to start and get off task!

  • Is 15 old enough to stay over night on her own and babysit her little sister?

    Best answer: You should probably get someone a little bit older to keep an eye on things. A 15 year old is a little bit young to handle some situations. It would be okay if it were for a few hours, but it sounds like it is going to be some time.

GF: it is created from micro-waves (not the appliance the kind of wave) gamma rays and infared light what it would do is cause the area to be pitch black and then fry it but it is not complete yet J: does it emit the waves and does not detonate or does it explode and the waves are released like radiation. GF: it looks like a giant laser beam coming down from the sky cause of the microwaves J: so it is basicly just the waves themselves? GF: yea GF:it would use infared light to make it pitch black then use visible light to bling whoever was afected by the infared light it would only blind people J: oh then you could send out troops to capture the blinded GF: exactly and after we capture them we could unblind them J: we should make an presentation for our piglet leaders with these high tek explosives on it.

  • Should I be concerned about my 12 year old’s black clothing?

    My daughter just wants to wear dark clothes all the time now. She says that it looks better on her and all her peers are dressing in white, grey, black, etc. I do agree that she looks great in them, but I wonder if something else is going on.

    My daughter just wants to wear dark clothes all the time now. She says that it looks better on her and all her peers are dressing in white, grey, black, etc. I do agree that she looks great in them, but I wonder if something else is going on. Back then, the goth kids were the “depressed” who’d do drugs, self-harm, and skip school. I don’t think my daughter shows any of those signs. Whenever we shop, she always looks for clothing that has mostly black or grey.

    They are 15 years old. He is a very nice young man, although somewhat quiet and socially awkward. My daughter has known him since childhood. Since she didn't have a good relationship with her older brother, the neighbor boy has sort of filled in as a brother to her. What really concerns me is the boy's father. His dad fits the quintessential "white trash" stereotype. He is a big burly man with toxic views on masculinity---always calling people "f@ggots" and "b1tches." The man has been unable to hold a steady job for over a decade because he's been arrested dozens of times for vandalism, theft, DUI, and fighting. I have met him before, one dad to another. We could hardly hold a conversation without him making racist or sexist remarks every 2 minutes. I was also concerned about the state of their home. There were beer bottles on EVERY table. The boy also seems poorly cared for (underweight, ill-fitting clothes, holes in shoes). The dad has admitted to beating his son. Although I have no problem with my daughter's friend, I do not want her anywhere near this man who has abandoned his duties as a father and a citizen. I have outright forbidden her from going to their house. Last week we got into a big argument about this. She thinks it's not a problem, since she won't be alone with his dad. Am I being over-protective? I would hate to interfere in their friendship, since they are practically brother and sister. But I am so worried about that awful man hurting my daughter.

  • Should I let my boy/girl twins have a joint birthday sleepover?

    Best answer: Nope, I wouldn't. Too many moving parts, too many nooks and crannies. Let one twin have a sleepover one Saturday night, and the other, the next. You can't deal with 10 kids at a time, nor should you mix them. All you need is for one couple to slip into the bathroom or somewhere else, and you've got a... show more

    Let one twin have a sleepover one Saturday night, and the other, the next.
    You can't deal with 10 kids at a time, nor should you mix them. All you need is for one couple to slip into the bathroom or somewhere else, and you've got a huge lawsuit and a bad reputation, and none of their friends can come over.

    Be the grownup. Just say no, and don't apologize.

  • Parents do you let your son sag shirtless?

    Best answer: My son sags his pants about mid-thigh so when he takes his shirt off, we see all of his boxers. It happens. They're boys. The girls seem to like it and not be bothered by it, so I just let it go and hope that the button on the boxers works.

  • Should I start paying for friends or hanging out with anybody. I'm only asking because I'm not good enough for real friends.?

    Best answer: I can definitely sympathize. Finding friends is a LOT harder as you get older. As we get older, we get more selective about the things and people we want to spend time around.

    Best answer: I can definitely sympathize. Finding friends is a LOT harder as you get older.

    As we get older, we get more selective about the things and people we want to spend time around. This happens for some people more than others, but it happens. It's natural.

    There was a news article I read not too long ago about how much harder it is to find friends as you get older, and it really stuck with me, I wish I could find it. Basically the whole idea is when you're younger, everyone's starved for attention from everyone they're surrounded by, going home with whoever. But as you get older you're hard pressed to even strike up a conversation with someone standing next to you. The best you can do is be in the same place at the same time everyday, maybe you'll see someone often enough that you can exchange a few words here and there. From there, it's all about keeping things really casual but giving them little bite-sized pieces of info about you, leaving breadcrumbs, but trying to listen more than you talk.

    You sound pretty thoughtful, I doubt you're this bad person you think you are. People aren't necessarily tripping over themselves to spend time with me, but I'm not that bad a person, try to keep the two separate. Maybe you're like me- You've shot your mouth off on occasion, pissed some people off, but you've learned some lessons and you can try to remember those going forward.

    (People are so much more sensitive and self-centered than when I was younger. So, in closing, I can't blame you, people are arses these days, I've certainly noticed a trend. (And ANGRY everyone is so angry at the drop of a hat all the freakin time for no reason!))
