  • I wish people know that my mother is not a good mother. Is that normal?

    I'm now a grown-up, married, studying for my post-grad degree and have a good job. People say I'm lucky to come from a good family who has guided me well, but actually only my father is a good parent.

    I'm now a grown-up, married, studying for my post-grad degree and have a good job. People say I'm lucky to come from a good family who has guided me well, but actually only my father is a good parent. My mom never cooked for me when I was small; I was malnourished and then she told everyone, including my dad, that I refused to eat her cooking. She would scold me if I dare to tell anyone the truth. Because I was bullied by her from Day 1 of my life - even in the family video, the first thing she said about me is that I had flat nose - I thought it was normalcy and said nothing. Every day she told me I'm ugly and no man would marry me. When I told her that my kindergarten teacher said I'm cute, she said that's just because she pitied ugly child like me. I had low self-esteem, and she compared me with my cousins who are not shy in public, then sighed before relatives and family friends that I'm a difficult child. I spoke with my dad when I was older, and he did everything to support me. I insisted to study abroad because I cannot bear living with my mom any longer, as she criticized everything I do or like (e.g. I like the color blue, so it's ugly). I hate it when people think she's a good parent. I'd like people to know that my success is not thanks to her, and I long to post a "rant" like this on Facebook just so that they know, because my mom doesn't deserve the accolade. People will think I'm bitter, but why should she always get all those praises? What do you think?

  • Parents who hit kids: would you do it if the kids were big enough to hit back?

    Best answer: There is no reason to hit children. We know this now, however when I was a child it was considered acceptable. I used to get hit, slapped, whacked..with or without kitchen utensils. But I was a pain in the *** and a difficult child. The only thing it taught me is to be very very reluctant to let my mother look... show more

  • Does spanking actually work?

    I have heard that spanking children as discipline is not as effective as most parents think it is, and it loses effectiveness the more it is used and doesn't work as well in the long term as well as other disciplinary methods. I'm not assuming that is true or false, but I want to other people's opinion... show more
    I have heard that spanking children as discipline is not as effective as most parents think it is, and it loses effectiveness the more it is used and doesn't work as well in the long term as well as other disciplinary methods. I'm not assuming that is true or false, but I want to other people's opinion on this. My wife and I have discussed children, but I always thought a couple should get on the same page when it comes to things like that early on.

  • My daughter is doing bad in school while her brother has all A's and she is in the 7th grade. Help?

    Best answer: Prove to her that good grades are required to participate in cheer leading - because it is required. Students with poor academic performance are not allowed to participate in sports or cheer leading. Since she is so interested in new clothing, offer to give her money for clothing for every A that she gets on her... show more
    Best answer: Prove to her that good grades are required to participate in cheer leading - because it is required. Students with poor academic performance are not allowed to participate in sports or cheer leading.

    Since she is so interested in new clothing, offer to give her money for clothing for every A that she gets on her quarterly report card. You decide how much it will be.

    As for her making you late, you are the parent. Be one. You set the house rules and if she isn't ready on time, then make her leave the house in whatever condition she is in at the time you are ready to leave. (hair not done.....make her leave anyway. Makeup not done......make her leave anyway. Still in pajamas.....make her leave anyway. Trust me, it will only happen once.)

    Best answer: Ive been through this EXACT same thing!!! And going through it currently. Two years ago on christmas my husband cheated on me and got the girl pregnant. I have three kids with him and it was devistating. I loved him and even though he mentally and emotionally abused me, at the time I would have done anything for him.

    After separating and living with my mom for a couple weeks, there was no space at her place and I had the exact same question! I talked to a “on the phone lawyer” who advised me to not leave the kids with my husband. I could definitely lose them and very often it is how men end up with custody. (Not all of the time but it happens a lot). So I did what I had to and “gave it another shot” with my husband. I went to college. I got a job. It was enough for me to rent a basement suite.

    I know the feeling and it will take along time for you to figure your stuff out. But this is a common situation for women. I know you, like the other thousands out there, will make it!

  • I can't decide if I should go back to work or stay home?

    I've been a SAHM for years and my youngest is going to kindergarten next fall.

    I've been a SAHM for years and my youngest is going to kindergarten next fall. My ex an I are divorced but the child support is enough that I can continue being a SAHM, I live a very simple life, but it works. If I go back to work, it'll ease my 4 year old into life without me there 24/7 (daycare before kindergarten) and I can earn money to buy us some luxuries. If I stay home and wait to go back until he's in kindergarten, I can soak up these last few months before everyone is in school and the years really fly by. WWYD?

    So my child’s father started seeing his NOW wife when we were still together. In January he left me and our child for her and married her 3 months later. So she’s always never really sat well with the fact we have to communicate my child is only 1 so she can’t talk for herself so he has another child who’s 3 with someone else but her and his wife have a good relationship. They text each other talk on the phone. So he had his other daughter for an entire week but only kept mine for a day. So I asked why he’s like oh well my wife and my other child’s mother have a cordial relationship so she doesn’t mind going the extra mile to help her. And my baby is smaller and more hands on so ****** what I feel that’s bull crap so because you don’t have that relationship with me my child gets the shitty end of this stick. You’ve never tried to establish a relationship with me even though what you guys did to me was wrong i still feel she should have tried to reach out to me but she doesn’t because she thinks we still want each other I’m at the point where I don’t even want my daughter around them it’s not fair that’s his child too at the end of the day
