  • 15 yo and going to get spanked, what shoudl i do?

    Best answer: When I was a kid in the '60s It was common to see misbehaving kids get spanked in public. At home, kids, teenagers included, were spanked bare bottom, over the knee. Like someone else mentioned, after getting spanked, you had to stand in the corner with your pants and briefs around your ankles. And yes it hurt.... show more

    Now, most kids are brats and troublemakers. They run wild in stores and restaurants. They don't listen to their parents. And they are always getting into trouble.

  • Why does my mom fight me for everything(advice)?

    Best answer: Sounds like what you need is a job on the bus line.. not one on-line or job searching via phone. If you need a car or a ride from her to GET a job, you'll need it to fulfill the job. So take a different route. Find a job you walk to or can take the bus to. Fill out applications and talk to managers in person.... show more
    Best answer: Sounds like what you need is a job on the bus line.. not one on-line or job searching via phone. If you need a car or a ride from her to GET a job, you'll need it to fulfill the job. So take a different route. Find a job you walk to or can take the bus to. Fill out applications and talk to managers in person. Tell them you need a start date and schedule and are eager to work. Not a phone call, maybe, if they need you. An immediate job. It took me 20 applications and 5 days of walking the sidewalks for me to land my first job with those requirements but... that was less than a week and I had a job! Mom wasn't involved at all. You can do that. I don't know a lot about whatever your depression is but I think it's possible that making little steps, independently, towards your independence will not only help you feel better but it will give you the Independence you desire. Relying on HER to establish your independence is highly unlikely to achieve either goal.

    Every time I get around my fiancé's father and his girlfriend, they somehow bring up the topic of me having kids with my fiancé. Im in my early 20's and so is my fiancé. Im a sophomore in college and he is in training for the Army. Im a work study student and I don't have a car yet but I do have my license. I want to become a Labor and Delivery nurse, so I am pursuing that path. I am clearly no where near ready for a baby, but his father constantly brings it up. My fiancé already has a little daughter and he is a great father, but his previous relationship didn't work out too well. I do have dreams of having at least one child with my man, but definitely not now. He wants a child with me too, but not now. We both want to get ourselves together first before we become fruitful and multiply lol. But every time his father brings up kids with my fiancé I get uncomfortable and I either don't say much, or I desperately try to change the subject. Im pretty sure young girls love discussing their dreams to be a mother, but I get uncomfortable and embarrassed when there is talk about me being a mother, even though I do want kids someday. I know that if I marry my man, I will be a stepmother, which I have absolutely no problem with. I don't know, am I just a weird one?

    I get the feeling my wife wants to leave. She's always cranky and angry all the time, she's constantly "tired", her patience level with the kids has declined tremendously. She usually does something for my birthday and does a craft with the kids for Father's day. This year, she did nothing for either, except help our 4 year old daughter make a flan, which when I commented on it, she got all pissy again. I commented to my mom that she didn't do anything this year, but that doesn't explain why she got pissy afterwards. One of her colleagues approached me (I have a remodel job in an apt in the condo she works) and told me that he overheard her talking with a female colleague about the weekend and the subject of Father's day came up. Apparently, this female colleague asked her why she was POed or something. I've been noticing though that doesn't say bye to me in the morning anymore, only kisses the kids goodbye and greets them when she comes home. Whenever we talk, she says I don't listen and doesn't want to waste her time talking to wall. How can I know if she's thinking of leaving without actually asking her? I don't think she'll tell me the truth anyway.

  • One of my immediate family from another country is dying from cancer, but I got married recently and don't have much money. Should I go?

    Best answer: It's a tough situation, but I would say to plan to go.

Be as frugal as possible, but if this is an immediate family member and their end is coming within a month or two, I'd go to them for a week and spend time with them. Of course, you would just have to plan to be INCREDIBLY frugal when you got back so you don't stay in debt for too long. Is it at all possible for only YOU to go without your spouse so you can save on expenses? I know its not ideal, but that would be the best option.

  • My sister won't come to my family party as she is cold to family values. Am I rightfully mad at her for this or should I let it go?

    Best answer: She's the one missing out on family, not you. She is the one with the problem, not you. You invited her, she declined. End of story. You have to find your own peace. You could still keep inviting her to family things so she can't ever say she feels "left out"...

Three of the four adult cousins are coming as well as the little kid cousin who is like 5th grade. There is no electricity at this place. So what activities and how might I attract 5 college age cousins?

  • If my(19) aunt(67) has a daughter(49) and she(49) has a son(13) is she and her son my aunt and my cousin?

    Best answer: The daughter is your first cousin, and the daughter's son is your first cousin once-removed. That's assuming the aunt is not your great-aunt.

    Best answer: The daughter is your first cousin, and the daughter's son is your first cousin once-removed.

    That's assuming the aunt is not your great-aunt. (I'm wondering because of the age gap between you and her.) If she is, the daughter is your mother or father's first cousin (depending on which of your grandparents is the great-aunt's sibling), and the daughter's son is your mother or father's first cousin once removed. That would make the son YOUR second cousin.

    He is finally moving out at 27 and going to be living 1.5 hour flight away. I really love him but his family is very controlling. If I have plans and want him to come over for 7:00pm he is always late because his mom was running late with dinner..everytime. I've asked him nicely "could you please cook your own dinner tonight so we can be together earlier?" He says he will but never does. It's like hes scared of his Mom and sister. Is this normal? I feel my gut tells me sometimes that I deserve better. I told his mom "if you're ever in my area please give me a text or call I'd love to meet up for a coffee or tea" and she responds "oh im never in your area". I live in one of the nicest areas in our city and it would be a 15 min drive from her house. They will also talk about events infront of me without extending an invite. My boyfriend will be away but they could have at least said "you're more than welcome to join us" instead of talking about it infront of me multiple times. I find the mom and sister will humiliate me infront of others, I drive a nice jetta but a bit older and its broken down a few times and they always make fun of that and make fun of the place I live. It's not like their house is anything special and my family has a place on the lake and a nice house, my place I live in for university is just a bit small. Im studying to want to be a dentist. is this all normal?
