• How do I cope with another man raising and putting his hands on my baby son?

    Best answer: It's sad that she would want to move far away. How can you play your role as his dad if she does that? She is so selfish. Her first priority is your son. Your son needs his father to be there for him. And not her boyfriend. I think that you need to get in touch with a lawyer asap. Your lawyer will tell you what... show more

  • My mom is hitting my sister up for money, should I tell our dad?

    So just a little background, we’ve had highs and lows in our family and we’ve had times as kids where our parents borrowed money from us for gas, food, ect. (Birthday + Christmas money) now however we are doing much better, my dad has a good paying job, he spends wisely, and we aren’t rich or well off but we are doing a lot better than before (my point is there is no need for my mom to bum money off of my 13 year old sister) well my grandparents and aunt also just sent a substantial amount of birthday and Christmas money and my mom isn’t going on shopping sprees, there’s no obvious thing that points to where all this money is going. She’s a teacher and earns that way, my parents split the bills, my dad pays for things if my older brother and I need anything (gas, food, ect.) she does have an alcohol problem but as in drinking beer at home and wine, she drinks a lot however she has the kids wit her all the time so I feel like we would be able to see if she was buying so much alcohol that she’s asking my sister for gas money. I mean my dad could give her gas money, he usually does. Unless she’s hiding something, I don’t know if I should tell my dad or not. What’s your opinion? Thanks!

  • When to call a stepmom ‘mom’?

    Best answer: Talk to her about it. Open up to her about the fact that she's been more of a mother to you than your own biological mother and that you love her like a mother (assuming you do) and that if she's okay with it, you would like to call her "mom". Talking to her about it is probably the best option... show more
    Best answer: Talk to her about it. Open up to her about the fact that she's been more of a mother to you than your own biological mother and that you love her like a mother (assuming you do) and that if she's okay with it, you would like to call her "mom". Talking to her about it is probably the best option you have, that way you can see if you two are on the same page about it and so that you can avoid the awkwardness that may arise from just calling her it anyway. If you feel too weird about talking to her about it first, talk to your dad about it and maybe he can bring it up in a conversation with her and go from there. Also, I'm very sorry about what you went through with the bio mother. That's incredibly sad and no child deserves that at all, but if you have a happy family with your dad and step mom then that's what counts. Hope things turn out well xx

    I found out money was being taken out from my bank account and my sister was the one who was my card and had my card set up to pay her utility bills. I went to the bank and they saw she I had made a money transfer to my sister’s account and I told them I never have. So they said I can either try to get the money back from her or prosecute her. My mom heard and got mad that I said I will prosecute my sister if she doesn’t pay me back. My mom said she will report me for threatening her and yelling at her and see how I do it in jail. She told me I need to stop lying because my sister said she didn’t use my card. The bank doesn’t lie I told them both. My mom rather have me in jail for me threatening her and I have said I hope you die, I will kill you and such because growing up I was abused by my dad. My mom never done anything for it and I was mentally damaged. Well at this point I just want to die. I don’t want to be here. My depression is getting worse and I can’t stand my parents and my lying sister who is denying she ever used my card.

  • Is it bad that I sometimes talk about sex with my brother (I'm a girl)?

    Best answer: I don't know about normal, but my brother and I are the same way. Matter of fact, we're equally as open with our mother (I'm 27, he's almost 29). We've just always been an open family (minus my estranged oldest brother). It's acceptable to have such an open relationship with your brother,... show more

It's acceptable to have such an open relationship with your brother, you two are just very close and that's okay, it's better than constant fighting lol.

At 29 I should not be getting help from my parents!! Is it wrong they are helping me?

  • My sister and brother are always fighting and my Mom is always telling them how much better I am then them. Is this fair?

    Best answer: Your instincts are spot on wondering if this is fair to them. It isn't. Also, is your Mom unaware that fighting is normal between sibs? Anyway, a lot depends on the wording she uses. If she literally says you are "better", this is not a good way for her to promote you as a role model. She... show more
    Best answer: Your instincts are spot on wondering if this is fair to them. It isn't. Also, is your Mom unaware that fighting is normal between sibs?

    Anyway, a lot depends on the wording she uses. If she literally says you are "better", this is not a good way for her to promote you as a role model. She doesn't have to put them down to get her point across. Try to get her to see this. It's important, because if a mom tells a couple sibs that another sib is better, she's practically guaranteeing they'll resent you. Actually, her best option might be to stop talking about it so much. Role models lead by their actions, not because someone is in the background making noise about it.

  • Was my mother being disrespectful?

    My brother threw a surprise birthday party for my big sister. It was lovely and Lots of people came. I was having fun up until the speeches.

    My brother threw a surprise birthday party for my big sister. It was lovely and Lots of people came. I was having fun up until the speeches. My mother said 'Rachel is the best daughter and Lucy is good too'. I am Lucy by the way and everybody looked at me. I felt a little bit embarrassed because it kind of felt like my mum was making it clear who her favourite was. I dont use the terms 'best' 'favourite' when describing my family members because I think can create misunderstanding. I use positive yet general pleasantries like 'an awesome brother' 'caring brother' etc. So I felt a bit disrespected. I am known to be a little sensitive and I often feel like the black sheep anyway so I just want to know if I am over reacting or is it a legitimate cause for concern.

  • I think my son is gay?

    Best answer: Don't leap to any conclusions. It's really creepy for a young man to discuss girls with his mother, and it takes awhile for a young man to figure out his own sexuality.

    Best answer: Don't leap to any conclusions. It's really creepy for a young man to discuss girls with his mother, and it takes awhile for a young man to figure out his own sexuality. It may be that he's tried and failed to find a female lover and, in desperation, he's now considering homosexuality.

    I did exactly that. After nothing but frustration from girls my own age, I eventually went to a gay bar and gave it a try. What I discovered was that I am definitely NOT gay. After that embarrassing lesson, I soon discovered the advantages of pursuing horny divorcees. What a shame I squandered an entire decade by "dating" girls my own age.

    Don't tell him you've been snooping. Instead buy him a copy of Playboy magazine, so he can use it to imprint himself on the female form while masturbating. Seriously, young men are highly visual and he may be exploring homosexuality only because he's never actually seen highly sexual naked women. Don't embarrass him by trying to talk about sex. Just let him discover a Playboy under his pillow and when he asks about it, act all wide-eyed and innocent -- like you haven't got a clue how it got there.

    Good luck, Mama.

    I just realized I've presumed you are a single mother. If not, I apologize for being so presumptuous.
