• My Son Smokes Marijuana?

    My son is 16, we live in a state where marijuana is legal for people 21 years old, and my son smokes weed. It started a couple weeks ago, when I found a bag of marijuana under our couch. My son told me, and still stands by that it wasn't his weed. Today I looked in his room, and I what looked like an ounce of marijuana. I confronted my son about it, and he thinks what he did is entirely okay. He says that he works hard and it's a tough at school, and marijuana helps keep the edge off. For now I've taken it away, and my son told me that he should be given the money he paid for it, or he should have it back. He's not grounded, but I told him that I don't want to know in the future if he smokes weed. Should I ground him? Or should I let him smoke marijuana?

  • Would you make a 13 year old girl walk home alone after dark?

    My friend and I, who are both 13 year old girls, were hanging out at my house and her dad called her and told her to walk home. It's about a half a mile walk between our houses and it was already 10:30 pm. She was too scared to walk alone so I walked with her and had to walk back alone. Are we being rediculous... show more
    My friend and I, who are both 13 year old girls, were hanging out at my house and her dad called her and told her to walk home. It's about a half a mile walk between our houses and it was already 10:30 pm. She was too scared to walk alone so I walked with her and had to walk back alone. Are we being rediculous to think it was a bad idea for us to walk home alone? Plus she has a serious anxiety disorder and it just seems insensitive of her parents to make her walk. So if you were a parent of a 13 year old girl would you make her walk home alone at night when it clearly made her really uncomfortable?

  • Adult son is still at home?

    Hi, everyone. I'm the father of three-now grown up sons and an adult daughter. My youngest son (who is twenty) still lives at home with me and my wife and I am getting extremely pissed and upset with my son's behaviour and lack of communication in the family. I don't think he has ever been in a relationship but he has friends who he often goes out with.ย He has OCD apparently but he seems to think that a petty thing like that is the biggest problem in the family. My son works at a part-time job and all he does it go home late at night, says hi then goes upstairs in his room. He never asks how I am and only talks when he needs something and even in a car, all he does is listen to his headphones. I never had this of my two other sons. My wife believes he is a lot like our daughter, but at least she is friendly and outgoing. But all our loser son does is sit in his room all day and he goes out to smoke weed, comes back late high, and doesn't talk. He's different to our other children and is never really outgoing. When he was twelve, he used to scream at night from nightmares and had teddy bears until he was fourteen. I just find it highly embarrassing that our son is as strange as he is and I'm on the verge on confronting him but my wife said that she would do it. If I do, how do I go about this without sounding overly critical?

  • Is it true that people who don't have kids are retarded?

    I realized that people who are smarter and more fit to be alive usually have children at young ages. Let's say there's a group of people who live in Africa, they all have kids 30 and they only have 2 surviving children. They do that for 100,000 years.

    I realized that people who are smarter and more fit to be alive usually have children at young ages. Let's say there's a group of people who live in Africa, they all have kids 30 and they only have 2 surviving children. They do that for 100,000 years. Take a second group of people who live in Europe, they all have kids at age 18, and they have 6 surviving children. They do that for 100,000 years. The group in Africa has about 3,333 ancestors. The group in Europe comes from over 5,000 ancestors. Meaning everyone who was unfit or unable to mate has been weeding out that many extra times. Now let's say the group from Europe went over to Africa. Who is likely to be genetically superior? The group from Africa or the group from Europe? Remember, only about 80 percent of people are successfully able to breed after each generation.

    Best answer: Hello, Rosemary!

    It's not a matter of your being right or wrong; you are responding to your child's father's irresponsible behavior in a manner that anyone would understand. My question to you is, Why do you continue to put up with it? To a certain extent, I realize that my question is rhetorical; you put up with it because you love him. Granted. However, there is a limit to all things and it seems to me that limit with regard to your unworkable relationship was reached sometime ago. Your boyfriend has repeatedly exhibited how immature he is--that he is not yet ready to take on the reins of adulthood--but still, you hang onto him. You said that you realize that he has no desire to marry you, nor does he wish to relocate to a larger place to accommodate a growing child, which basically means that your relationship has no future. None. Rosemary, it's not the help of well-meaning strangers that you need to seek; it's finding the courage to trust yourself. You are, in essence, running in place. If it cannot be fixed, drop it. Then you will experience some movement.

    My husband and I are having an argument about how I do things with the kids when it comes to feeding them. I have a twin 2 year olds, 4, 7, and 11 year olds. Iโ€™m usually the one making them the 3 meals just from asking them and also by what time it is since they last ate. My husband will wait for hours until my oldest finally says they are hungry. He also does this with are youngest who arenโ€™t very verbal and donโ€™t have many words yet. Which really pisses me off lol. What do you guys do with your children?

    My daughter just started her second year of Girl Scouts. At first, she was excited, but now she is saying she doesn't want to do it anymore. The reason is because of her troop leaders. They both to be a little high strung, especially the head leader. She was the one who asked if my daughter could join her troop, and now she acts like she doesn't really like my daughter. And my daughter picks up on it. My daughter has a problem with anxiety. She spooks easily. Today, her troop leader told all the girls to go to the bathroom. Well, my didn't need to go, so she told the leader. But the leader forced her to go. In the stall was some sort of bug which freaked my daughter out. So my crying, hysterical daughter was forced to go into the stall. The leaders don't make the meetings fun. What should I do? She did a whole school year. Should I make her finish this year as well? This was only their second meeting of the year...
