    Please nice answers only. My cousin and her family have moved here to Illinois from coastal Mississippi after being displaced by the recent hurricane there. They have a very sweet natured 14 year old son who is very overweight and they yell at him non-stop to lose weight. Here is where I need advice. While they say he HAS to lose weight they allow him to eat whatever he wants and never anything healthy! They don't believe in making him even try foods if he doesn't like how they look. My concern naturally is for the boy who is being let to eat himself into an early grave by parents who are kind, intelligent and well educated. They should have their own place soon, so do I keep my anger and opinions to myself or sit them down and help them understand they are hurting their only child? I love them all dearly, they are my family, but this can not be good, I know it isn't. M as I'll call him stands only 4'9 and weighs 275 pounds! Please help with some good advice. My mother was the exact same with my younger brother who is now nearly 47 and in very bad health, is there anything I can do that won't lose a part of the little family I have left? BTW They are currently staying in my house so I have to listen to them fuss about this poor kid's weight problem while they give him sugar filled cereals, candy, chips, french fries and Hot Pockets and nothing else. Thanks.

  • What is the silliest nonsense movie line you've ever heard?

    For me it came from the comedy/horror film HOUSE starring William Katt & Key Lenz. Lenz played Katt's ex-wife, an actress. One night he is watching her on TV and she said to her co-star in a fake night time soap opera "My Sister Was An Only Child And You Abused Her"

  • An honest and polite opinion on family argument over head lice?

    My eldest step grand daughter, who is 12 has lice all the time. Literally, she'll wait until they are eating her scalp alive before she says a word and by then her younger half brother, sister, step-mother (my daughter) and father have lice too. Her younger siblings aren't old enough for school yet and have little contact with other children... show more
    My eldest step grand daughter, who is 12 has lice all the time. Literally, she'll wait until they are eating her scalp alive before she says a word and by then her younger half brother, sister, step-mother (my daughter) and father have lice too. Her younger siblings aren't old enough for school yet and have little contact with other children outside their older sister and a few cousins who've never had lice. Yet her mother blames the little ones for her constantly getting lice. How can I or any of us nicely tell her mother it might be the other way around? Both sides are threatening to keep these kids apart and this situation is getting totally out of control. Her mother won't believe she gets them at a 'nice, clean public school'! Help please? Rude and unrelated answers WILL be reported. BTW her mother is loved like part of the family just as her daughter is. Thanks in advance.

    This may sound silly, and if it does to you, please don't make fun. Every year my husband and I save all our change in a 5 gallon plastic bottle. It is not touched no matter how much we might need it during the year since it is our Christmas fund. In October of this year we had about $90.00 saved and it was stolen. We are low income and usually do not want or ask for charity but have become desperate. That money would have bought our grand-children's gifts this year. Now it is gone. Does anyone know of any groups in Southern Illinois that can help grandparents? If not it'll be a gift-less Christmas for children too young to understand. Please if you know of any groups or people who can help in the Carbondale-Marion or Williamson County area let me know. We have 6 grandchildren ranging in age from 16 months to 11 years, 3 boys, 3 girls. All we want is to give them something decent for Christmas. Thank you and God Bless.

    ( Sorry This Is So Long) I was raped and got pregnant at 16, my mother tried to force me to have an abortion and I refused. My son was born in Dyersburg Tennessee on February 15, 1979. I was put under 2 minutes before his birth and woke up in recovery alone, where I stayed alone for over 45 minutes. I saw my son for only a minute before he was rushed to another hospital in Memphis with serious birth defects, He died a week later. Now, 30 years later my sister, brother and Aunt say they believe my mother arranged for my healthy child to be switched with the ill one of an older married couple. There are so many unusual things surrounding his birth and death that this has but doubt that the child I gave birth to actually died. I've grieved every day for 30 Long years and no matter what, the baby I loved and watched die is mine, but I have 6 autopsy reports, no 2 are the same and it's extremely rare for a healthy non-smoking, non-drinking, non- drug using 16 year old to give birth to a baby with Down's Syndrome. If my biological child IS alive (and I'm not holding out hope) How could I begin to try and find him? If he is alive I did not give him up and at the 30 he'd have to know the parents who raised him are not his biological parents. I'll welcome any help. Thanks.

The sister is kept in a basement near her dead mother's prized piano. The brother draws hands on every surface of his hospital room trying to tell what his deranged father is doing. A woman, either a police office or psychologist is trying to help the brother to unlock the mystery to his silence and the recent murders where only the young victims hands were cut off. It's a murder/mystery/horror type of film and might, just might have been made for television. It's driving me and my sister crazy, please help. Thanks. :-)
