• My teenage son will only eat his food if it is arranged a certain way on his plate.?

    How can I get help for him? At family dinner time, he sits there and complains that it is not arranged the correct way. We don't want to get mad at him.

About 10 minutes into a futile family dinner, either my wife or I takes his plate from him and arranges his food to meet his satisfaction and give the plate back to him. He then scarfs it down like there's no tomorrow.

  • 17 y/o girl wondering, why are adults/parents so opposed to the idea of teenagers having sex?

    Ok so I know adults usually think teens aren't always ready for it or mature enough to deal with potential consequences. And parents probably don't want to face the fact that we're not so innocent and young anymore. However, as they were once teens too, don't they understand what it's like to be... show more
    Ok so I know adults usually think teens aren't always ready for it or mature enough to deal with potential consequences. And parents probably don't want to face the fact that we're not so innocent and young anymore. However, as they were once teens too, don't they understand what it's like to be a teen and want to have sex. And I'm assuming many of them also had sex when they were teenagers and felt that they were ready then. So if I've had sex education and know how to be safe, why are they so opposed to it? wouldn't they be able to relate at least on some level to what we are thinking? I was just wondering. I'm from the US and read an article recently about how some parents in Europe (like in Scandinavia or wherever) are a lot more open about sex, and how they sometimes even let teens have their significant others over for the night. idk, just got me thinking.

  • Teens - what social media platform do you use?

    Best answer: Initially Facebook, but more so to keep up with my niece and nephews in college and when they travel around the world. But not so much now as I do not post anything there. There is a point of giving out TOO Much information.

  • What to do about son walking around shirtless?

    My son recently took to sagging his pants like his classmates. He says it's comfortable. I don't really care because he wears a long-ish shirt that covers his boxer briefs.

    My son recently took to sagging his pants like his classmates. He says it's comfortable. I don't really care because he wears a long-ish shirt that covers his boxer briefs. But when he is walking around shirtless, you see a ton of his boxer briefs. Parents, what do you do about your sons? Do you make them pull their pants up at least a little when they're shirtless? He wears his pants at the bottom of his butt and just below his penis.

  • I feel like my girlfriend wants to go further?

    This is hard to put into words so I’m going to try and just say everything.

    This is hard to put into words so I’m going to try and just say everything. My girlfriend and I have been playing this back and fourth when we make out but it’s like we both want to go further but are kind of scared, like we don’t even talk about it. We’ve been friends for years and it’s not like we don’t love each other, it’s just difficult. Yesterday we were home alone by ourselves and we just spent the day in my room making out. We had the perfect chance to do more but it just didn’t get there. What should I do? I really don’t want to have a whole big conversation about this, so is there anything else I can do. She’s a virgin too so I think she’s just more nervous then me but idk. Help please.

  • Is 10 a pre-teen?

    My 10 year old brother calls himself a "pre-teen" but I just call him a kid, I'm 16 and he's 6 years younger than me so I see him as a kid, not a teen at all. But would you consider 10 a pre-teen? when I call him a kid he gets very angry.

  • Is it weird for a sophomore to date a freshman?

    Best answer: No, but beware of guys who are eager to date someone younger. Freshmen don't have any experience, and the guys are often looking to have sex with someone who doesn't know how to protect themselves, and who is a virgin. Some predator guys will do that, and then dump you- and that can actually be a crime. ... show more
