    My boyfriend doesn’t want me visiting my family?

    Favourite answer:

    This is a huge red flag!  Why doesn't he want you to go? Covid related travel risk? Finances? Otherwise, its entirely appropriate for you to go and completely out of line for him to object. Controlling and isolating you from friends or relatives can be the first sign of an abusive relationship that will worsen over time. Do not worry about upsetting him ! Set the precedent NOW, for the fact that you won't allow him to control and isolate you !  And don't marry him. You are in for a rough ride, honey  , and if you tie yourself down even more than you have by getting pregnant, you may find it increasingly difficult to escape, as you determine this is what you need to do. Good luck!

    How can I convince my step mom and dad to let me get the COVID shot?

    I am 30 and still live with my dad and step mom. For a while I decided I am not going to get the COVID shot because I have seen in the news a lot of people dying from the shot, it won’t help and I am Christian so Jesus will keep me safe. Also my parents and step sister won’t get the shot because of those reasons. My mom got the shot. Now I am thinking that I should get the shot. I told and asked my step mom and dad about getting the shot and they say no. I have to convince them to let me get it. If I just go get the shot by myself they can easily find out that I got the shot.

    Is my mum controlling me?

    Favourite answer:

    You don't have the greatest relationship with your cousin, so it's not surprising she doesn't know how old you are. I know she could have spoken to your mom or even her own mom but sadly as you've explained your relationship with her isn't brilliant hence a plain notelet! As for the guy with mild special needs, your mom was possibly only trying to come off superficially caring just in case someone might have seen you in order to come off holy than thou! With adults, it's all about lip service even for the real evil ones. Not that I'm saying your moms evil but I hope you get what I mean? However, I completely get where you're coming from as I'm a lot like you "thoughtful" but you'll come to realise if you haven't already that there are far more receivers out there not willing to do the right thing by you despite your thoughtful caring ways. As for is your mom trying to control you, no, she's just paving a path of someone worthy of being viewed as a saint in the eyes of everyone when really she's a bit of a sinner, I'm sorry to have to inform you! Just keep on doing as you have so or even a little less sometimes as I'm sure no one has a problem with you except your mom but she's totally wrong on all accounts!

    Am I being fair and reasonable with my son?

    My car died in March, and I am using my 18 year old son's Ford Ranger until the end of the school year so I can save up some money for a new car.  

    My son is fine with me using the truck while he is in school, but is complaining because I drive he and my 13 year old daughter to school each morning and he has to ride in the middle between us.  He thinks he should always drive when he is in it and never have to ride between his mother and sister.  

    I think I am being fair because I let him drive home from school every afternoon and try to let him use it as much as possible on the weekends when me and my daughter don't have to go somewhere.  I don't think it is fair for my daughter to have to always ride in the middle and feel it is safer for me to drive in the morning since we are usually in a hurry.  

    I helped my son buy the truck and paid for about 1/3 of it since he was going to help drive his sister around.  

    Do others think I am being fair and reasonable with my son or that I am being unfair and unreasonable and should let him driver all the time.  

    I am getting really tired of hearing my son keep complaining when I am doing the best I can and feel I am being fair and reasonable.  Do others think I am being fair and reasonable or that he has valid points and I should let him drive it whenever he is in it?

    Do you think its sexist of parents to treat their son better than their daughter just because he temporary moved out?

    They have three children. The youngest is excused because he is 13. Their daughter is 24. Never moved out and never went to school after high school. Her parents yell at her a lot that she needs to get a job. She does not get an allowance. Her older brother is 26. Had to move back home because he lost his job last year. They never yell at him, and they are even willing to give him spending money until het gets a new job. They claim this is because he actually acts like an adult, but do this sound sexist to you

    My father's wife of 6 yrs died in a car accident, now he is left with 3 kids, ages 1,3,5. How can I stop him from dumping his kids on me?

    I don't know why he had such a young family in his late 60's that he can't care for. My husband and I have our own children 2 are in their teens and 2 are still in elementary school.

    "He has can to the extent of asking my mother," she replied to him that there's always foster care, if he can't find a family member to take them in.

    He just won't leave me alone about his kids. How can I get him to stop? I will gladly talk to him about other things, just not his kids.

    Is it ever ok for my parents to treat me like this?

    I am over 21, I live with parents..

    Mom and I co-own a house together..Both our names are on the deed.

    What had happened was I had ordered some chicken nuggets as a treat for our dogs (Who love chicken nuggets) 

    She told me off...Accusing me of turning the dogs into Fast Food Addicts. I only order the nuggets only once per week.

    Half an hour later, She told me she was heading to shops....So, I ask her if she could get me a Coffee Flavoured Almond milk..and i asked her in a nice calm manner.

    She told me off again, Accusing me of Drinking too much milk,Shouting "Youve been drinking too much milk" 

    Why do parents do this? I have not done anything wrong...I don't get it

    I have a sister that I do not speak to her but she is having surgery on Thursday do I bother reaching out?

    Favourite answer:

    Sometimes it's best to leave someone who is that against communicating with us alone.  I can tell you i haven't talked to my sister in about 15 years, and i dont' plan on it. However, if she ever contacts me i won't behave like anAss.  I'm just not going to contact her first, because obviously, she's not been interested.  She's always been really aloof.  Even so something happened in our family which caused our situation

    Take care of YOU first.

    How can I cope with my nana's passing.?

    My nana passed away sometime last night at the age of 73. Just 10 days ago she was still texting us every night, sounded like her normal self on phone calls. Let me tell you and I can't even explain in words, she is the nicest, most caring, loving, selfless, person I have ever seen and I will ever see in my entire life. I'm 16 years old and she has been by my side treating me like gold for every single bit of those 16 years. She is the nicest nana you could ever imagine. She did not want to be a burden on us ever and has not been a burden at all to ANYONE in my family. No chemo was done and we now think she did not want to do it since she couldn't on her own and did not want to be a burden. My mom and I have been over there helping her a lot taking care of her, spending the night. She says "honey you don't have to help nana, you don't have to do this" because she is so considerate and doesn't want to cause any discomfort. Again I can't even explain in words how much she has impacted my whole life. Again I'm 16, my little sister is 12 and my brother is 7. Recently I have been spending a lot more time with her and it was not because I knew this was going to happen. It was so sudden, but luckily my mom and I were still there for her final night. Even though this was the first time in a week we didn't stay overnight. I have cried my eyes out today and I'm falling apart because everything reminds me of her. Is there anything at all I can do to help the pain. She loved us so much.

    Babysitting grandchildren full time ?

    I am very aware that some grandparents don't get enough time with their grandbabies so I am grateful for the time I spend caring for 2 of them. I don't see my 6 other grandbabies that often and I miss them terribly, so I really feel bad for even asking this question. But should I request payment from the parents for babysitting the ones I do watch? It has been discussed with them before which has always ended up in an argument with threats of them just hiring someone else to take care of them and I won't see them, being told that grandparents don't get paid to watch their grandchildren because they know of others that do it for free etc, etc... we provide all of their food, drinks, snacks etc, and have never complained about that and never will. The reason I am asking is because all I hear from them is what they have bought, what they have ordered and on and on. We have recently had some major setbacks financially and they all know it and not once have they offered to even buy a loaf of bread, or milk or anything. I know I have been taken advantage of and let it go on because of fear of not seeing my grandchildren as they have told me. But because of the recent setbacks I am just so tired of it and do not know what to do, if any of you have had this situation could you please advise us on what to do, also please no rude answers. Thank you in advance

    Am I wrong?

    Favourite answer:

    Its your wedding , your choices. You will, of course, have to pay the consequences, if its worth it to you.  Years later, will you be glad you made the choice you did? Or will you regret it?  

    If you were to invite her, could it be with explicit conditions, e.g., no substance abuse before during or after the wedding in your presence or those of the wedding party? 

    I don't think you are being selfish, instead, you are accurately anticipating how her presence would affect everything in a negative way, if that's truly so.

    She has brought this upon herself, you are not to blame. Good wishes,

    Baby's Ashes?

    So I had a baby that died. Asked my mother in law to pick up her ashes because I was in the hospital still. She picked them up but also put the ashes in an urn without first consulting with me. How should I feel about this? I'm truly offended and don't think it was her place.
