• How should I handle this (and should I involve my son-in-law)?

    Our grandson (7 y/o) spent last week with us while his father was away for work reasons and his nanny was having a week off (our daughter has sadly passed away four years ago). Usually my grandson called me Granny, but over the week he insisted on using my first name. Last night when I called, he also did the same.... show more
    Our grandson (7 y/o) spent last week with us while his father was away for work reasons and his nanny was having a week off (our daughter has sadly passed away four years ago). Usually my grandson called me Granny, but over the week he insisted on using my first name. Last night when I called, he also did the same. However, he called my husband Gramp, as usual. I told grandson that he should call me Granny. I asked where he picked that up and grandson answered that his daddy (my son-in-law) also calls me that way. My son-in-law calls my husband "Dad" because my husband told him to do so long ago. I didn't, because of some misunderstandings in the past, and as years gone by it has become awkward to change. I don't know if my son-in-law has told his son to be disrespectful toward me. How should I bring this up with my son-in-law? I don't want to have another fight with him. My husband said just let it go, but I don't want this to become a habit, or that our grandson grow up thinking I'm a witch or something.

  • Should I babysit my niece and nephew for free?

    Best answer: She is correct in that it's nice for aunties to spend time with their nieces and nephews. However, you do that on an occasional basis when it's convenient for YOU...it's not a JOB with a required SCHEDULE. If it were my sister, I'd tell her that I'd be willing to fill in here and there if her... show more

    If it were my sister, I'd tell her that I'd be willing to fill in here and there if her regular carer was sick, but that your priorities are school and a paying job. You just don't have time for a five day a week volunteer position.

    Maybe your sister should make up with your mother. It's pretty cheeky of her to get into a pissing match with her unpaid employee and then expect you to pick up the slack.

    It's not like she is a single mother. These kids have two parents and they are responsible for them.

    So I’ve been married over just over two years and in that time we’ve separated twice had an illegitimate child that I was lead to believe was mine, there’s been infidelity on both sides, mostly hers but I strayed once, and there’s been aggressive violent behavior again on both sides mostly me defending myself from knife attacks or crazy fists. Background: I’m a full time university student who works graveyard at a casino to pay the bills and she is a stay at home house wife taking care of our two legitimate and one illigetimate children. I can’t afford two pay her way and mine. I don’t have the time to take the kids and leave her. And I care about her so I don’t want to **** her over (or any of my three kids) and just leave the whole scene. So how do I get out of this? We tried therapy and it didn’t work. I just feel so trapped that it makes me contemplate very bad things, not that I would act on them but I don’t like having my head full of negativity. Also the thought of staying just inspires me to stay drunk as often as financially possible vs when we agreed to separate and I had no urge to drink and was sober for over a month until she said she wanted to work things out.

  • Are you going to watch the Prince Harry marry Meghan? Why? Why not?

    Best answer: No, because weddings are boring enough to sit through anyway, even if it's someone you care about getting married, and I really don't find the royal family endlessly fascinating in spite all of the media's attempts to assure me they are.

  • Why do long distance movers tell their friends that they'll see each other again when they really won't?

    When people move long distance, especially out of state, that is when all friendships die immediately.

    When people move long distance, especially out of state, that is when all friendships die immediately. Friendships may stand the test of time, job changes, and graduation, but no friendship can ever stand the test of a long distance move. Literally, you might try and plan a get together with that friend for lunch, but months turn into years, and years into decades, without ever a get together. You watch as 20 years pass, then 30 years, then 40, then 50, then 60, and so forth. And still no get together or even a possibility of one. It's exactly like that friend passed away the day he/she moved long distance. The distance is far too great and the cost of travelling that distance is totally prohibitive. So why do friends still say they'll see each other again when they move long distance?

    I got into an argument that my daughter is too young to date someone in college. She talked back and became angry with me. I slapped her and CPS is involved because she went to the counselor the next day, told her that I disapproved of her trying to date someone. The conversation focused on why she “loves” a college boy, but the school called CPS to inform them about multiple concerns. They’re related to not only child abuse, but the fact that she’s a young girl involved with an older man.

  • Make wife initiate sex? My Wife is (almost) always coy when I initiate sex and asks ‘what are we doing’, ‘what do you want’ type questions?

    It’s very clear what I’m trying to do but her questions are a total mood killer. Even though she seems to really enjoy sex your behavior before tarnishes the experience for me. I have told her this before but of course I get blamed for either overreacting or reacting to something not worthy of reaction. Should I... show more

  • My bf wants to have sex but I don't want it until the marriage. I'm 20, he's 22. He keeps telling me to have sex with him. What should I do?

    Best answer: He doesn't respect you. Run away and don't go back. Giving yourself to another is the most personal gift you can give and it should only be given to the person who has committed themselves to you for life. Don't let him talk you into a cheap fling. You are worth much more than that.

He said, why do you have to take your cellphone with you, just leave it here outside. And one time I was already inside the bathroom and he knocked the door because he wanted to just get my phone.. There is another scenario, I was about to change my clothes and he was like, why do you have to change your clothes when you're only going to your parents house? why do you have to look beautiful.. where are you going?
