• Was this unfair of my parents?

    They made me bike to school every day uphill for 2 miles. I had to get up at 6 am and I reeked of sweat.

    There's this party this weekend but I'm grounded and my mom didn't even say for how long!

    There's this party this weekend but I'm grounded and my mom didn't even say for how long! It was because I got caught shoplifting these expensive shoes at the mall and she had to go to the store to get me and convince them not to press charges which they were going to do because of how much they cost. She hasn't even really talked to me since. However this is really important to me since it's the end of the school year party which is a really big deal around here and I don't want to miss it. The only other solution is to sneak out and I really don't want to do that. If I can convince her to let me go out just for this weekend I'll be fine with it. What should I do?

    Best answer: I’d like to believe this never happened but I believe it with how crazy young ones are now days. I say just give him a stern talking to, and make sure he goes with you when you take him to get the car fixed. DO NOT spank him.. that’s abuse.

I’ve seen people get arrested for spanking their children. Once out in California. The cop didn’t play around. As soon as he saw red marks on the child’s behind he told the dad to put his hands behind his back!

  • Dad is an alcoholic and Mom says it is my fault cause I was dismissed from UNC for poor academics. How do I get over this guilt I have?

    Best answer: Unless you opened up a bottle every day and poured it down his throat, it has nothing to do with you. That's just a very poor excuse. It's NOT your fault. Each and every person has to take responsibility for their own drug use (and yes that includes alcohol). It's OK to ask for help when you need it... show more

Each and every person has to take responsibility for their own drug use (and yes that includes alcohol). It's OK to ask for help when you need it but it is very much NOT OK to blame someone else. That is the exact opposite of taking responsibility for one's actions.

    Currently, it feels like I’m living in hell at my home with my father. He has become petty & downright evil. To make things clear, my mother left me this home when she died 9 yrs ago, so my house is mines but in her will and testament the home doesnt go into my name until 25. I am a 22 year old female who is feeling controlled by my father in my own home. Who knows what is wrong with my dad, but I’m guessing he was in a relationship where he was living with his gf and apparently they broke up. When he came back he has done everything in his power to have control and scare me. So far he has put a restraining order on my boyfriend to stop him from staying to my home with me (he pushed my bf to the edge honestly, not violence though), he has turned off my service on my phone and refuses to release me from the contract that I have been asking of him for years, he has taken my pets and brought them to the shelter, he records me and my friends smoking weed (legal in California), he has put up a huge wood slab up so I can only pass through one part of the house. He makes it so hard to live at my own home. I want to move out so bad, but it’s pointless to leave my home that was left to me. I was told to evict him but idk what to do. He is trying to have some sort of control and I’m literally scared at home cause whatever I do will trigger him to do something to hurt me. It’s like I’m his punching bag for all his problems. He has always been controlling but now I’m grown. Any advice?

    Me & my sister-in-law are both about to have our babies really soon. We were happy it worked out this way because our kids will be close in age & that's so cool. We have a close net family & live near each other. We always do things together, along with my other inlaws, including my husbands other brother. The problem started when I got pregnant with my baby & she turned out to be with child too. This is her 2bd kid & it's my 1st. She named her 1st baby "Joe", which is sort of like what my older SIL named her baby who is a month older than her 1st baby. The other baby is a girl & her name's "Jozi" & her mom wasn't pleased that our SIL named her kid that. I told everyone we were naming our baby Ryan & then SIL announced she's naming HER baby Ryann. It's a girl & she stole my son's boy name by adding an N. She stole her 1st babys name too so it's like she can't come up with her own names. My husband says let it go & we can name our baby somthing else but I like the name I choose. What do you think I can do without cause problems in the family? Other than stealing baby names she's nice. Thanks for the advice.

    I am 56 and I lost my parents in middle of last year. First Dad died aged 91 and then just 3 months later Mum died aged 87. Doctors think Mum didn't want to go on without him. Because they died so close together I feel double the amount of grief. I was close to them and lived a 30 minute drive away and spent time with them. I have no family or partner of my own. When I am out with friends and I talk about my parents I often become tearful. Some of my friends have become impatient with me and told me they both lived longer than average lives and I should be over it by now. Do they have a point?

  • What would you do if you were me?

    I’ve lived with my dad and stepmom for five years. My stepmom has pretty much always hated me, even before I moved in with her and my dad. She bitches about everything, yells a lot, talks **** about my mom, talks **** about me. It’s led to me doing stupid things, but that’s irrelevant. She really hates me. So a few weeks ago I was like really pissed off at my stepmom. I was pretty done and just ready to talk to my dad. I told him how much I hated living here, because of her, and that i just wanted to live with my real mom. I also told him not to tell my stepmom, I told him I wanted to have a private conversation with him. Anyway, I didn’t benefit at all, he pretty much defended her and I just left it at that. I was really upset and angry. Thursday, my stepmom rolls in on her scooter and said something about you that really ******* pissed me off because any time my real mom is mentioned (I didn’t mention her, my dad obviously told her about the conversation we had) she insults my real mom. So at that moment, I realized I couldn’t talk to either of my parents because I couldn’t trust either of them, and my stepmom is always talking **** about my mom. I didn’t say anything to either of them about it but it was eating away at me all of yesterday. I was really stressed and angry and I was all over the place. I had no clue how to deal with my emotions

    Okay, so I'm 18. I just got a job and nowadays course my pants want me to pay for my own weave and wigs. Thry say I look like **** naturally my mom says if I go makeup and weave free I'll never find a boyfriend, I'll never get married and guys won't find me attractive. She's the same person that kept repeatedly telling me I'm never going to find a job, I'm too slow, and I should just give up because no one will hire me and I'll never be able to hold down a job. She made me turn down interviews and even one ******* job offer. Then just keeps telling me I look like garbage. My parents generally hate how I look and I hate having to go home to so much verbal abuse. I want to stop wearing wigs for a while but at the same time I don't want to have to deal with my parents belittling me, and yelling at me for how horrible I look because they've done this before and they won't stop telling me I look like ****. I don't know what to do anymore. I just want to run away from home. In public I'm told how beautiful, pretty, and hard working I am but at home I'm told I look like crap, I need to give up because I won't go anywhere and I can't do anything right even if I try. Can someone please help me? I'm 18 by the way. And please don't say just kill your parents because I've already been told that by several people.

    My girlfriend is 23 and I’m 26. We have been together for 4 months and haven’t had any problems up to this point. I recently, however, went out of state to visit family for about 1 1/2 weeks. While away, I had sex with my 1st cousin’s best friend (who is 22 and married) and then I had a threesome with my 3rd cousin (who is 23 and has a boyfriend) and her best friend (who is 23 and single). I then had sex with my 3rd cousin another 22 times throughout the week (about 3-4 times a day). My 3rd cousin and I have had sex a number of times before, but that was before my girlfriend and I met. We text and call each other daily and are just really close. Recently though, she has been telling me that she is in love with me and wants something more. She has also become a lot more affectionate towards me in front of our family and I’m worried she is going to blow our cover, which would be a devastating blow to our family. I probably should mention that I have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder Type I + psychosis a few years ago. I also haven’t exactly been taking my medications for it and my symptoms have been returning, one in particular is the hypersexuality. I refuse to go back on those medications though. When I’m on them, I feel like a big pharma zombie. Regardless as to what you all may think, I really do love my girlfriend. I just couldn’t control myself. I decided I’m going to tell my her, because she really does deserve at least the truth and it’s eating me up inside.
