    Best answer: I’d like to believe this never happened but I believe it with how crazy young ones are now days. I say just give him a stern talking to, and make sure he goes with you when you take him to get the car fixed. DO NOT spank him.. that’s abuse.

I’ve seen people get arrested for spanking their children. Once out in California. The cop didn’t play around. As soon as he saw red marks on the child’s behind he told the dad to put his hands behind his back!

  • Dad is an alcoholic and Mom says it is my fault cause I was dismissed from UNC for poor academics. How do I get over this guilt I have?

    Best answer: Unless you opened up a bottle every day and poured it down his throat, it has nothing to do with you. That's just a very poor excuse. It's NOT your fault. Each and every person has to take responsibility for their own drug use (and yes that includes alcohol). It's OK to ask for help when you need it... show more

Each and every person has to take responsibility for their own drug use (and yes that includes alcohol). It's OK to ask for help when you need it but it is very much NOT OK to blame someone else. That is the exact opposite of taking responsibility for one's actions.

I've explained to them that it's under my ownership due to me having bought it from my money only, but my parents said "Our house, our rules." It took a year worth of saving to get it; can I sue them?

    Okay, so I'm 18. I just got a job and nowadays course my pants want me to pay for my own weave and wigs. Thry say I look like **** naturally my mom says if I go makeup and weave free I'll never find a boyfriend, I'll never get married and guys won't find me attractive. She's the same person that kept repeatedly telling me I'm never going to find a job, I'm too slow, and I should just give up because no one will hire me and I'll never be able to hold down a job. She made me turn down interviews and even one ******* job offer. Then just keeps telling me I look like garbage. My parents generally hate how I look and I hate having to go home to so much verbal abuse. I want to stop wearing wigs for a while but at the same time I don't want to have to deal with my parents belittling me, and yelling at me for how horrible I look because they've done this before and they won't stop telling me I look like ****. I don't know what to do anymore. I just want to run away from home. In public I'm told how beautiful, pretty, and hard working I am but at home I'm told I look like crap, I need to give up because I won't go anywhere and I can't do anything right even if I try. Can someone please help me? I'm 18 by the way. And please don't say just kill your parents because I've already been told that by several people.

    My girlfriend is 23 and I’m 26. We have been together for 4 months and haven’t had any problems up to this point. I recently, however, went out of state to visit family for about 1 1/2 weeks. While away, I had sex with my 1st cousin’s best friend (who is 22 and married) and then I had a threesome with my 3rd cousin (who is 23 and has a boyfriend) and her best friend (who is 23 and single). I then had sex with my 3rd cousin another 22 times throughout the week (about 3-4 times a day). My 3rd cousin and I have had sex a number of times before, but that was before my girlfriend and I met. We text and call each other daily and are just really close. Recently though, she has been telling me that she is in love with me and wants something more. She has also become a lot more affectionate towards me in front of our family and I’m worried she is going to blow our cover, which would be a devastating blow to our family. I probably should mention that I have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder Type I + psychosis a few years ago. I also haven’t exactly been taking my medications for it and my symptoms have been returning, one in particular is the hypersexuality. I refuse to go back on those medications though. When I’m on them, I feel like a big pharma zombie. Regardless as to what you all may think, I really do love my girlfriend. I just couldn’t control myself. I decided I’m going to tell my her, because she really does deserve at least the truth and it’s eating me up inside.

    To give some info, my father died of cancer when i was eleven, and he was in and out of the hospital for most of my life. (i am a sixteen y/o girl, youngest of five) my parents always had a loving relationship (married 25 years) and stuck together even through hard times. i was hanging out with my mom and i used her phone to google something because she asked me to, and when i opened her phone it was at her texts & she had written a a long passage to her ‘boyfriend’ (this is in quotes because they used to date, got into a fight and date on and off now). her phone froze on the screen because it’s an older iphone and it’s slow and i read the message. apparently they’ve been in a relationship for ten years, even though she introduced us to him a year ago under the guise of meeting a few months before at work. if you do the math, they were in a relationship for five years before my dad died. in addition, she has been coming home way later than usual under the guise of having extra work but she has actually been seeing him secretly (also in the message). i know i shouldn’t have read what was on the screen so i am at fault, but what do i even do? i understand that my dad was sick and couldn’t exactly be the ‘model husband’ all the time but to cheat is just unthinkable. should i confront her? should i tell my siblings?? what do i do i’m so confused and upset.

    So, long story short, my 3rd cousin and I have been in a sexual relationship for the past 3 years (I’m 29 and she’s 26) and somehow our WHOLE family found out and they disowned us. It wouldn’t have been so bad, but a number of them berated us and then resorted to name calling. They said we were disgusting and a disgrace to the family. They proceeded to call me an “immoral, sex-craved, animal” and my 3rd cousin a “slut, who can’t keep her legs closed.” They have been spreading lies about me throughout the family for as long as I can remember, so it didn’t bother me. However, my 3rd cousin was loved by the whole family and could do no wrong, so this was new to her and she took it pretty hard. She burst into tears. I was livid. I just lost it and said, “You’re all a bunch of ******* hypocrites. Where were you when our great-grandparents did the same ****? No one said a damn thing. So, **** you if you have anything negative to say. You can all just ******* rot.” After that, we just walked out. The expression on our family’s faces were priceless and I just started laughing when we got in the car. This isn’t just a fling. We are moving in together and have every intention to get married (not like anyone would show up for it though). I know many of you won’t agree with our relationship and that’s fine. But, my 3rd cousin’s parents and my parents said I shouldn’t have said what I did. But, I think it was justified. So, I was just wondering, was I in the wrong here?

    I am 56 and I lost my parents in middle of last year. First Dad died aged 91 and then just 3 months later Mum died aged 87. Doctors think Mum didn't want to go on without him. Because they died so close together I feel double the amount of grief. I was close to them and lived a 30 minute drive away and spent time with them. I have no family or partner of my own. When I am out with friends and I talk about my parents I often become tearful. Some of my friends have become impatient with me and told me they both lived longer than average lives and I should be over it by now. Do they have a point?

    I’ve lived with my dad and stepmom for five years. My stepmom has pretty much always hated me, even before I moved in with her and my dad. She bitches about everything, yells a lot, talks **** about my mom, talks **** about me. It’s led to me doing stupid things, but that’s irrelevant. She really hates me. So a few weeks ago I was like really pissed off at my stepmom. I was pretty done and just ready to talk to my dad. I told him how much I hated living here, because of her, and that i just wanted to live with my real mom. I also told him not to tell my stepmom, I told him I wanted to have a private conversation with him. Anyway, I didn’t benefit at all, he pretty much defended her and I just left it at that. I was really upset and angry. Thursday, my stepmom rolls in on her scooter and said something about you that really ******* pissed me off because any time my real mom is mentioned (I didn’t mention her, my dad obviously told her about the conversation we had) she insults my real mom. So at that moment, I realized I couldn’t talk to either of my parents because I couldn’t trust either of them, and my stepmom is always talking **** about my mom. I didn’t say anything to either of them about it but it was eating away at me all of yesterday. I was really stressed and angry and I was all over the place. I had no clue how to deal with my emotions

    Today, I was home alone, in my room, watching a movie with my earphones plugged in, when all of a sudden, one of my dads workers opens my room door. Since it is summer and my room receives the most sunlight, I decided to lay in bed naked with only a thin sheet to cover me up. When he opened my door, I don’t know how much of my body was covered up. I told him to leave and he immediately did so. My parents are currently away on vacation. When I called my parents to tell them what had happened, they said that he had come to pick up his check which was left outside in a hidden and predetermined spot he knew about. He was never supposed to have come inside the house. I don’t know what to do.
