• My 4 yr old niece threw a tantrum at publix today because I wouldn't buy her a candy bar. Was I wrong?

    Best answer: No, it's not wrong to deny candy to a child who's overweight, and even if she's not overweight she shouldn't be eating candy every day. You were acting correctly, as a good aunt.

  • Would you agree that poverty breeds poverty?

    If a child sees her mother having multiple kids on government assistance, she's going to think that lifestyle is the norm and she'll probably grow up to be like her mother. Why do poor people even have kids?

  • Is it wrong to want another baby?

    Best answer: I think you could hone new skills before getting pregnant again. You need to rule those two little girl's roost.

    Best answer: I think you could hone new skills before getting pregnant again. You need to rule those two little girl's roost. Daddy is the big guy, the swagger, but those little girls of yours need to be getting with the program now. Build a strong "we all belong to the same family tribe and the tribe has expectations and requirements" unit in the family bond. Start now. The six year old has to take turns, wait in lines, wash her hands, listen to what the teacher says, not talk when it's someone else's turn, raise her hand, pay attention, go along to get along... every day in school. Why not at home too? The 4 year old can learn to start practising the skills she'll need in school. She's not far from it. Total chaos is not the environment to introduce a new baby into. So work on how the tribe functions first. Punish them for bickering, arguing, yelling, complaining ,nagging.. etc. Those aren't really acceptable behaviors. And they're sure not cute behaviors. The more kids in a household, the more the rules need be understood and expected to be followed. With wisdom and love, of course. Little people are still people. They need teaching more than punishing but learning a consequence to their actions is a vital part of early childhood.

    We are meeting the grandparents at Applebees for dinner at 7pm and it is 645pm now. We just arrived here and she is having a fit screaming "I want to go to Zaxbys, I need Zaxbys, please MOMMY. " she had a pb&j sandwich and some baked chips for lunch around noon today. I told her that Applebees has yummy food too and they have chicken fingers. I told her that when we get home she is going to take a bath and straight to bed. She got even more mad and I was going to let her stay up an extra 30 minutes tonight and play. I feel guilty for not giving her what she wants. I have spiled her for 6 years and don't want to do it anymore. She is embarrassing me, her dad, and her 12 yr ok brother in this parking lot.

    I live in California and have been looking for well-paying work for 10 YEARS. There isn't any outside of computers, healthcare or the vocation trades. I do have a 2-year degree in Mathematics but that isn't enough. I think I can do a lot of things but my ideas never seem to lead me anywhere. I can offer online services in: - Math-tutoring (up to calculus): too many websites offer this online for free - Computer Repair: more people are buying computers instead of fixing them. - Bookkeeping: too many people entering this field; most earn minimum-wage. - Florists: this industry has crashed. - Psychic-Reading: ? - Book Copy-Editing: ? - ESL English-tutoring: I've been told there isn't enough demand. - General or Legal Transcription: Voice-recognition is taking over this field. As for a career, I'd rather be a manager at an ice-cream store but my parents said corporate may not want a 40 year old man. ______ I've been told by many people on this site, that without a college-degree there is simply too much competition in these fields. I am at my wits end. I'm thinking of going homeless soon. Advice Please.

    My husband & I have a 7 year old daughter. Our best friends have a 6 year old son. They have always been around each other since they were babies. They always got along great as toddlers. Now that they are getting older, my daughter is getting to the point where she can't stand him. When we go over to their house, she always tries to get along with him, but after a little while, she is asking to go home. Has anyone else had to deal with this? How did it work out? I don't want to make my kid suffer & deal with a child she doesn't like. But I also don't want to lose our best friends.

    My son has a noticeable mustache upon his upper lip and has had it for a couple of months now. I have not really mentioned or talked about it with him. I do not know if he likes it or does not like it. It has gotten darker since he first grew it. I kinda want him to start shaving but I do not know what to say. Help?

    one of my friends and I were talking about our parents today when we met up at her house to finish a project for our history class and she was grounded for something so the topic kind of came up. She said she was grounded for a month over sneaking out. I told her my parents have never grounded me more than 3 days for anything. She told me that that's not even really being grounded and my parents are cool if that's all they do. I always feel like my parents are way more strict than hers are though. Yeah, I only get grounded for a few hours or days, but my parents do it for every little thing. I was late for curfew by 3 minutes once and that was 3 days in my room and doing a lot of chores. For her it's just major things like sneaking out. I've never done anything like that, I think being a few minutes late for curfew is about the worst I've done. That and one time when I lied about where I was. I got 3 days for that and my parents closely monitored everything I did for a while. Me and my friend are both 13 (close to 14) if that matters. Is the way my parents do things normal or not????

  • Having a kid at 27 is too young, right?

    My mum had me at 27 and I am now 17 and she is 44. Glad that she had me at such an young age. I think everybody else's mum's must have been at least 30 when they gave birth to their first child

    I believe that my daughter is not mature enough for this app called Sarahah. She’s at the age where most kids don’t tell their parents everything. A few parents have had problems with their kids and social media. I haven’t had any issues with her but I’m afraid that she’s being pressured into joining this app. Children can sneak into sites on a public library computer and at a friend’s place. My daughter can be overly sensitive and this site is known for cyberbullying. I’m most concerned that some comments will harm her emotionally. Having anonymity there can also be sexually graphic messages on it. It’s just something that a young teen will be influenced by.

  • Is it normal for parents to not give their kids rules or do my parents not care?

    I feel like maybe my mom and dad don't care about me. They kind of leave me alone and let me do what I want. They aren't like that with my older brother. With him they give him chores, and tell him what grades he needs, he has a curfew, he has a bedtime, and he's grounded for something most of the time.... show more

With him they give him chores, and tell him what grades he needs, he has a curfew, he has a bedtime, and he's grounded for something most of the time. Maybe my parents are just the way they are with me because I mostly self regulate. I don't like my room or the house to look messy so I clean things, I always do my best in school (that usually keeps me at A's and B's. Except an occasional C in math because I struggle with that. I go to tutoring though), I don't go out much, but if I do I just tell my parents and they come pick me up when it's time to go home, I go to bed every night at about 9 or 9:30 because I wake up early and would be tired if I went to bed earlier. I wonder if my parents don't care or if they're just trusting me.
