• 11 year old son coming into female toilets. Is that ok? What age is safe for a child to go to toilet alone?

    I mostly always take my 9 and 11 year old into the public toilets with me. With the amount of creeps out there I don't think it's safe. However, today, I took my son into the toilet with me and an old lady yelled at me. Do you think it's ok and what age should a boy be allowed to use the loos alone?

  • My 12 year old son stuck his middle finger at me. He very rude. He blames us. His voice keep cracking when he talks. I don't know how to?

    Best answer: Suppose you were visiting a foreign land and you did not speak the native tongue. No doubt, communication would be difficult​—but not impossible.

    Best answer: Suppose you were visiting a foreign land and you did not speak the native tongue. No doubt, communication would be difficult​—but not impossible. For example, a phrase book could help you to learn the basic expressions of the language. Or perhaps someone could translate for you so that you would be able to understand others​—and be understood by them.
    PARENTS raising teenagers may sometimes feel that they are in a similar situation. Much like a foreign language, the behavior of adolescents may be difficult​—but not impossible—​to comprehend. The key is for parents to try to interpret just what is happening during this sometimes exciting, but often confusing, stage of growth. See the source link for some helpful suggestions.

  • Are children obligated to take care of their parents if the parent is short with money?

    Best answer: No. Parents imposed life on their children. Exposed them to a crapload of burdens they didn’t ask for. Children shouldn’t be obligated to take care of their parents unless they signed some sort of contract.

  • How can I talk to my daughter ?

    Best answer: of course it is too young to talk about sexuality, only a pervert would be considering it.

    to protect your daughter from teasing, you should keep any other special friendships from her until she is old enough to keep secrets from people outside the home

    s this an over-reaction? Hi I’ve became a friend to my partners daughter from a previous marriage. I love her like I would my own, no doubt. The biological mother who she doesn’t live with, has demanded that her child stays with her over the weekend and she pays 60 pound in maintenance. She’s got nowhere to live, has gone between relationships since I’ve been with my SO and we plan to marry next year. She’s now pregnant with another child, her other child has been adopted out. She was slating to my partner how she’s bought Christmas Presents which she had just last week when she came over. I feel the little girl is always a weapon for her mum, whenever she tries to get one up from the biological partner. She’s like it to her other kids dad. She’s claimed that she wants to put 60 in a month for maintenance, hardly pays for nothing. As between me and my partner we have enough to live on, however I buy all the gimics she wants in between such as LOL Surprises, I bought 300 pounds worth of stuff because at the of the day she needed new toys to more of a suitable age. I go to school events, any dancing shows she goes to - which we invite her but she doesn’t choose to come. She’s now asking if eventually my SD will go to live with her. I just feel like me and my partner will be running in circles and I can’t live with that and his ex. Do I just distance myself and leave them to it?

    My daughter yelled at me this morning and I took away her day of screen time as a punishment. She got mad and started giving me glares, slammed doors, and spoke in an annoyed voice, so I took away the next day of screen time. I'm trying to be a good parent: help them learn a lesson. Should I at least not allow screen time today and let her play tomorrow if it's too "cruel"?

    My 10-year-old son has been throwing me unnecessary looks and slamming doors. I recently grounded him for a month for getting a D in Language Arts. I have been trying to show him that this is his punishment, and he must take it. But that won't happen! Every time I try to get his attention, he'll either ignore me or respond in a whiny tone. Because of this, I always give him a short, stern talk about his unacceptable behavior. His father has also been giving him talks. We discussed last night and came to the conclusion that we should give him one big talk as a family tomorrow morning. If he whines or protests, we will add one more screen-free day and will keep doing so until he finally gets it. Unfortunately, I'm not very confident in myself. Xavier is my first child and I have to admit - I'm not that good at parenting. Am I doing this right? What do I need to improve? Thank you.

  • My neighbors' young adult son has constant violent outbursts and causes stress daily. Is it reasonable to ask his parents to do more?

    Our neighbors' 20-year-old son goes out at 10 every night, slamming the door violently, returns after midnight, again slamming the door with a jolting force that awakens us, and then fights with his parents until 2 in the morning, shouting at them.

    Our neighbors' 20-year-old son goes out at 10 every night, slamming the door violently, returns after midnight, again slamming the door with a jolting force that awakens us, and then fights with his parents until 2 in the morning, shouting at them. He plays video games until dawn, bouncing around the room so it feels like there's a constant earthquake tremor, then sleeps most of the day. He smokes weed in his room all afternoon and evening, causing it to seep up into our unit, and blasts his music. The other night he went bolting out at 3 after fighting with his parents, and his dad chased after him imploring him to come back. He is not going to college or working. Please do not advise us to simply move as that is not a viable option. My husband and I are young professionals still paying off graduate school and saving to buy a house for a future family. We were thrilled when we got this apartment and it had been very peaceful at first. When this family moved in below us they ripped out all the carpet and put in fake hardwood floors that reverberate all sound. We went from never hearing our neighbors to hearing everything, from their snoring to the fights. We've asked if they could at least put some thick rugs down in their sons room to help dampen the sound from him playing video games at night, but they refused. We've put down thick rugs. We wear ear plugs constantly, have multiple white noise machines. We're robbed of sleep and peace nightly.

  • Was it wrong for me to spank my kids butt for having matches in his room?

    Best answer: If you had already told him he is not allowed to have matches in his room and explained how important it is as a safety measure, then it is appropriate to spank him for breaking the rule. But if you just found them and flipped out without talking to him about it, then it would be inappropriate.

Maybe the more expensive stuff isn't better than the cheaper products and we have just been programmed to believe a high price means better? Its a head scratcher.
