  • Should I stop financially supporting my 23 year old son?

    My son isn’t in college and he doesn’t have a job.

    My son isn’t in college and he doesn’t have a job. Despite that I pay his rent, phone bill, cable bill, car insurance, and any other bill you can think of, plus I give him money to have in his pocket so he can buy food, clothes, etc. He came to me and my husband a few days ago asking for cash because he spent all the pocket money we gave him. When we refused to give him money he blew up and basically threw a temper tantrum and called me and my husband degregory names. My husband feels that making him pay for his own things will teach him not to be so spoiled and stubborn. I on the other hand feel that it’s better if we continue supporting him because otherwise he won’t know what to do and I don’t want my boy extremely frustrated.

  • My brother is having an affair. I caught him last weekend. Do I tell his wife?

    Best answer: Don't tell her have a talk with him and tell him how feel and that you want him to be true to her and if he really doesn't care about her he should be the one who tells her and if he doesn't then consider telling her but again warn him first so he can be the one who does it.

  • My 17 year old daughter is emotionally attached to a stuffed animal. How do I make her stop?

    Best answer: I hope that I'm not overstating this, but it sounds like she needs to be evaluated by a psychologist, if she hasn't already been evaluated, right NOW. Seriously, call someone this morning. Talk to her school counselor (if they have one); see a doctor; do something. If this young lady cannot separate... show more
    Best answer: I hope that I'm not overstating this, but it sounds like she needs to be evaluated by a psychologist, if she hasn't already been evaluated, right NOW. Seriously, call someone this morning. Talk to her school counselor (if they have one); see a doctor; do something.

    If this young lady cannot separate reality from fantasy as regards a stuffed animal, then she may need some type of oversight even once she's passed 18. In all honesty, it might be difficult for such a person to ever hold some normal adult jobs, and her monomania may in fact extend to the other areas in life. Because of this, you may need to control her finances, and she may need help with daily living decisions. If she is "putting on" about this obsession for attention, then the idea that acting this way may lead to very real and undesirable consequences (such as having to go into inpatient counseling) may jolt her into reality.

    Of course, her fixation may be VERY real, and she may really need serious inpatient counseling, medication (if she has schizophrenia or even a hormonal imbalance causing her to consider the stuffed toy her "baby") and care to help her move past this delusion if it is trauma-based, if she can.

    I am sure that her behavior is very frightening and bewildering for you, and probably a massive shock to realize that your daughter may have a real problem and is in such emotional distress. If she is evaluated before she is 18, however, you may have more control over her life- even for just a few more years- and can possibly prevent her from making financial and other decisions (such as running away, or believing that the stuffed animals tell her to do things) that might ruin her life. Also, the earlier you deal with this problem, the better chance she has of making a recovery if it is trauma-based.

    At the same time, you might consider trying to find a "special needs" support group for parents of emotionally/mentally ill young people for yourself. I know a number of "special needs" parents who know that they will have to care for their children past the children's majority and/or who deal with parenting issues like this. Special needs groups, as well as a counselor, can help you with programs, financial questions, legal matters, and just general encouragement as you walk this complex and often lonely-feeling road of having a child with a mental/emotional challenge. Blessings.

  • Should I tell my sister that I think her husband is cheating on her?

    Best answer: No. You shouldn't risk destroying her marriage and her peace of mind over something you merely suspect.

    The dad is 86 years old, healthy and has a sharp mind. He and I are close although we live in different states. We talk on the phone often. My 20 yr old son, who is in college, met an accident recently where he ran over someone who is now on life support. The accident was not my son's fault. The young woman was riding her skateboard in the middle of the street at 7 PM (which was after hours). The street had no lights, and my son was driving within the speed limit. Everything has been reported to the police and insurance. Should I share this unfortunate event to my dad who I am close to or should I spare him the worries?

    Hey I'm 21 and live at home with my mum and sister. The thing is my sister has problems and is supposedly classed as 'ill', she is absolutely discusting and the house is a constant mess let alone hearing her screatching voice etc every night towards my mum because she's a spoilt brat. Here's a perfect example... she goes in the kitchen and uses about six plates a day and leaves everything a mess without putting anything away such as leaving milk and butter open on the work top along with rubbish she can't be bothered to even put in the bin! It's disgusting! The house does my head in on a daily basis and until I have work that is more permanent there's not much I think I can really do. My mum defends her if I retaliate to this mess of a house hold and does not give her any punishment what so ever, in fact I even got kicked out last summer over this waste of a human because of how angry it was making me but I'm always the bad one if I have a say! she is 18 years old and acts 6! Sometimes I feel bad and tidy up her **** so that my Mam doesn't have to, it makes me angry on a constant basis and don't know what I can possibly do apart from suffer in my own lack of happiness over this waste of space. My voice is never heard because if I show my anger I'm apparently being a ****. I know this sounds a minor rant but it feels like a big problem for me and shouldn't have to be around this garbage. This is basically my current life in a nutshell.

    so i'm 17 y/o a girl and i have a twin brother. me and my brother are polar opposites. like...he's not gay or girly or anything, there'd be no problem if he was but he isn't, and i'm a complete girly girl. but despite that, me and my brother are literally best friends and always have been. u know how identical and/or same sex twins are usually really really close? me and my brother's relationship is like that even though we're fraternal and different genders. we do fight of course like any siblings, but we like hanging out with each other and we can tell each other almost anything. a lot of the time i don't even need to invite a friend over because i have my brother to hang out with/watch movies with/whatever. sometimes we'll go into each others rooms at night and just talk or hang out and laugh for hours. we share most friends, so if he gets invited to a party or something, then i usually do too, and vice versa. a lot of the time we'll sit together at lunch at school with all of our friends. we go a lot of places together and are probably even going to attend the same college because we can't stand being apart. is this weird or bad???

    I am going to college and staying with my brother and his wife. I started to have painful periods. It was 5 days of hell. I could barely function. My doctor put me on medication that stopped my periods. It is wonderful. I don’t have these terrible pains each month. My problem is the medication that stops my periods is also a birth control. My mother is a devout Catholic who believed that anyone that takes birth control is going to hell. My brother said we should just let this be our secret and not tell my mother what I am doing. He said if she knew I was on birth control, it would cause her needless worry. Do you think he is correct in us keeping this secret?

    Best answer: You left this really vague. What makes you think your Mom would make you stay with an uncle? Does she know you're scared? What about him scares you?

    Obviously, if you're alone with him and anything he says or does scares you, call the cops (Ignore idiot advice like call CPS). Don't worry about Mom. If you have good reason to be scared, and she knows you're scared, she's being incredibly selfish. There's no reason you can't fight back if you need to.
