    My mom knows and is ok with it, my dad doesn't know that she knows, if he did, things would be really bad. I'm 17 and bf is 23. He wants to get my dads permisson but My dad is threatening to put him in jail. He assumes my bf is on drugs and not in school which is completely wrong. He doesn't do drugs and he is in college. My mom likes him but has to play along like she doesn't infront of my dad. My dad wont even take the chance to talk to him, he says it doesn't matter, hes a "sick disgusting man for wanting anything to do with a 17 year old". It's not like I'm 14. I won't be 18 until 7 months so I just want him to accept him but need help on how to go about it. Any suggestions?

  • What should I do about my daughter?

    My daughter is 19 years old. She’s a freshman in community college, which I pay for. I pay her car insurance ($2,000/yr), car repairs (thousands of dollars over two years), and she lives here rent free. I also buy all her food and toiletries.

I pay her car insurance ($2,000/yr), car repairs (thousands of dollars over two years), and she lives here rent free. I also buy all her food and toiletries. She’s in school about 9 hours a week over three days. I don’t think she has much homework. She has a job where she works 2-3 days a week for about 10-12 hours on average for the week. She only pays for her gas and for clothes. Should I continue doing this? She always says she’s so busy but she spends more time with her boyfriend than she does at school or work and sometimes getting her to do chores around the house becomes a chore for me.

    My parents have been very strict all of my life. I asked my parents if I can go to a concert that is held in august at least once in my life or go out with my friends every 6 months next year cause I'm going to be 17. My dad immediately freaked the heck out and said stuff that I can only go when I become a doctor. Like, I told my dad that he realized that is gonna take up so many years of my life and I'm not gonna have time once I work. He said he doesn't care and that doctors can have fun too. I even offered to pay for the tickets and take myself there b/c I'm getting my drivers licenses soon. My dad said he wants to just study. Like, isnt that what I'm doing right for more than 10 hours each and every day. I take 3 AP classes + 5 other classes + I am Key Club President. I stayed awake till 5 AM today to plan for next week's meeting and finishing my homework on a friday night. . My dad said I'm gonna be a garbage woman when I grow up because he thinks I'm not gonna do anything valuable with my life. I play tennis competitively. I'm studying in high school to be a pharmacy tech/clerk to have a good start of a summer job after I graduate (yes the classes I take for it will give me a certificate saying that I am certified to work in a hospital or pharmacy). . I also spent the money that is given to me very well. I know its not enough but I'm also going to major in Chemistry... I dont know if that makes me childish but I believe I shouldn't be a prisoner in my own home.

  • I have written my parents a letter to let the know how I feel. Could someone proof read it, and check nothing is too rude? Thank you.?

    Best answer: If you want an honest adult reaction, I almost stopped reading it after the first paragraph, because it came across so obnoxious. Then I kept reading, and I'm glad I did, because it turned into a really mature-sounding letter to them! You need a better way to start, though. You're trying to get them to... show more
    Best answer: If you want an honest adult reaction, I almost stopped reading it after the first paragraph, because it came across so obnoxious. Then I kept reading, and I'm glad I did, because it turned into a really mature-sounding letter to them!

    You need a better way to start, though. You're trying to get them to understand you need more freedom NOW to handle the freedom you'll have LATER. This is a fair point, but you don't want to start out making them defensive. That first part almost comes across like a threat! It's not about you being able to drink or have sex. It's about them starting to trust you more to make good decisions.

    What you want to keep in mind is that all countries have legal ages to start doing certain things, but what matters most is parental rules. Here in the US, so many teens think that when they turn 18, even if they'll be living with their parents for a few years they can stay out as long as they want etc. It doesn't work that way, and parents know it.

    I'm not trying to discourage you at all! But your parents know all this, even if you don't, so it's something to keep in mind when you approach them. It might be better to start out in a much more positive way, thanking them for being good parents and helping you get to where you are.

    Also, your letter needs a "goal" or next step attached to it. You write really well, which usually means you communicate well. So I'd find a way to tell them you'd like to discuss this with them at a convenient time. This is the point where you get into specifics. Don't forget to ask questions. "Dad, what would it take for you to feel comfortable letting me go to London with my friends"? If he wants you to text him every hour, this is what you do.

    After the passing of my grandmother, my moms drinking had gotton out of control. She has depression and anxiety. She goes to a doctor every six months for her refills for something for depression and xanax. I haven't been home lately at night and didn't know that she had a problem. This past 2 weeks; she's been a mess. I find her Xanax on the floor, I have to help her to bed, get her water, and basically babysit her. I took her xanax away one night. She takes her recommended dose for the day at night (she doesn't take her xanax during the day). Drinking wise, she drinks 5 beers I think. 3 mg of xanax and 5 beers is not okay!! Last night, I had to carry my mother down the stairs (on my butt, with her sitting on top of me) because she was banging into everything. And she was just laughing like it was fun. I told my dad about the xanax being on the ground and that I think she might be taking them in her sleep and my dad told my mom that I said that. And she took it all offensively, like why would I do that. I'm scared one morning, I'm going to wake up and she's going to accidently overdose. My parents sleep in separate beds and I don't want to create conflict. My dad works early in the morning so he is sleeping when she gets like this. I'm 18 years old and in college right now. I don't want to be kicked out over this because my mom is going to be angry for "telling on her". How do I explain this to my dad?

  • How far can parents take the 'my house, my rules' argument?

    For circumstances that affect the parents, it makes sense and I agree with it, e.g. Having people over. But, can they really apply this argument to things that have no effect on them whatsoever, e.g. How much time I spend doing a certain activity?

    So im 25 and my name is Patrick. I have an identical twin brother named John. I'm currently single but John is married to a girl named Kelsey who is 23. They got married two years ago in 2015. Kelsey and I both work at Olive Garden so we see each other often. Im not stalking her or anything but she always leaves with this one guy and I caught them making out in the kitchen once, which was beyond awkward, since she is married to my twin brother. She always leaves with him and today I decided to confront him. I told him that she's married to my twin brother, and he started yelling at me about how he doesn't care. I started yelling back about how that he's my twin brother. I eventually just walked away. Should I tell John what Kelsey is doing behind his back? I don't want to be a snitch, and that guy said he was gonna beat me up if I said anything. What should I do?

    He takes care of the household financially and provides for all of our needs but he's turned emotionally abusive to the kids. He slams doors breaks glasses has broken our microwave he's tipped the refrigerator over he shredded up the sofa and loveseat and has misplaced our family dog. It's like no matter how good the boys do he always comes behind them and find something to complain about. The sad thing is it doesn't stop with a complaint it always escalates from him complaining about something to him picking on them personally. For example oh well you can't be that smart cuz you don't even know how to clean the effing room. Or wow your mother needs to have your vision checked because you clearly didn't see the s*** on the dishes when you claim to wash them... this is not only emotionally heartbreaking but it's embarrassing because we live in a condo in Neighbors on the whole floor constantly hear him yelling and screaming. I guess the problem that I'm having is I finally realize this as him being emotionally verbally abusive. Our house is like a war zone with him yelling all the time and the scary thing is I see evidence in my eleven-year-old of him being abusive just like his father. Every time after his father emotionally abuses him it's like my 11 year old turns his anger on his little brothers. To be honest I don't have the financial resources to go on my own and support four kids. I just don't know what to. I am a 35 year old on disability.

    I have a 9 year old daughter and she tells me complicated stories about friendships. There seems to be a lot of crying, fighting and making up, passing notes, and other drama. As a parent, I didn't expect this until her tween and teen years starting in 6th and 7th grades. Her older cousins and siblings didn't go through that at her age so I haven't experienced this. For myself, as a child there wasn't that much conflict at this age. Times have changed, and I've read about dealing with issues like this. They're usually about older girls with friendship problems like these though. She knows that I am always here to listen and advice is offered. I choose not to get involved but make sure that it does not escalate to bullying and harassment.

  • Does this show that I'm too selfish?

    Best answer: That is the total opposite of selfish, good job! Selfish is staying at home, eating free, living free, not giving your parents their deserved peace, and making them feel like they didn't raise you right because you can't fly on your own. Explore the world, start your life, it's expected.

    Ok so.... my sister is 21 years old and still living with my parents. (I was out at 19). It wouldn't be such a big deal if she wasnt a COMPLETE bum. She doesn't always shower, her teeth are rotting out, she can't make friends and doesn't want to, she will probably never get a man or have children and probably never will get a job. She doesn't try for ANYTHING. She sits in her room all day and night long playing computer games and drawing, wakes up at like 3pm snd goes to bed at like 2am. My mom doesn't know what to do. She doesn't want to be so harsh she kicks her out with nowhere to go but god bless my sister, she is too dumb to do anything. Literally. She has never passed a job interview because she has zero idea how to talk to people or what most words mean. Shes rude as hell to my mom and all she does is literally veg out and rot in her room, barely even eating or washing. And she is really reallyyyy rude to most people. We know she needs like a friend or something to move in with or to help her find more.friends and gain social experience but it's impossible. She will NOT try and my mom is afraid she's going to find her dead in her room one day. Is there a place someone like my sister can go? Somewhere she can stay and get help for stuff like this???? We just have no answers and don't know what to do anymore...
