• My daughter keeps playing loud music when she is home alone. Neighbours are starting to complain?

    What should I do? Due to my work schedule, she has to be home alone for a short amount of time after school. It is only about 20 minutes but she blares classic rock music during this time for the entire community to hear.

  • Do you think it's wrong I let my son have a female friend over in his room with the door closed?

    No I'm not trolling. Let me explain, my 17 year old son has a friend Lori he has known since Kindergarten. They're like brother and sister. We consider her family. Now that they're older, my husband thinks they shouldn't be allowed to be in his room alone. However, I check on them and they're... show more
    No I'm not trolling. Let me explain, my 17 year old son has a friend Lori he has known since Kindergarten. They're like brother and sister. We consider her family. Now that they're older, my husband thinks they shouldn't be allowed to be in his room alone. However, I check on them and they're just watching a movie or playing a video game. I think my husband worries because my son Adam has a girlfriend now; but, his girlfriend Melissa knows Lori. Sometimes they all hang out together. Am I being too naive or what?

  • Is it okay for a parent to take 3 days off from parenting every week?

    I am going to be a new mom soon and I am planning leaving my child at my parents place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday so I can have time to myself. I am going to be a single mother so it’s important for me to have days off from parenting.

  • Do you think that it should be illegal for teenagers to access birth control?

    They'll be less likely to make stupid mistakes if they know the consequence is more likely to be getting pregnant or having an STI.

  • Do you ever undermine your spouse in front of your kids? Or is it wrong?

    My wife and I never really got on the same page with parenting I always thought she was too soft with them. They could do anything and she would say they feel bad about it there is no need to punish them.

    My wife and I never really got on the same page with parenting I always thought she was too soft with them. They could do anything and she would say they feel bad about it there is no need to punish them. I was a lot more of the idea that they should be punished, just grounded or given an extra chore type thing. Our 8 year old son spat at his teacher because she was shouting at him, we were called in to school and my wife started shouting at the teacher for shouting at our son. I just sat there in shock and when we got home I told our son he was grounded and my wife just undermined me saying he is sorry and it wasn't completely his fault so we don't need to ground him. We have a 12 year old daughter she came home 2 hours past curfew she missed dinner so I said she couldn't have any food, my wife undermined me right there in front of our 4 kids by going and making her a plate of food. I am kind of fed up with it like not just our parenting differences but that my wife would undermine if infant of our kids. They don't respect me because if I tell them off they just go to their mom and she tells them it is okay. If I say no to our younger kids they ask their mom and she says yes. I don't know it just feels wrong. Is it wrong? What should I do ?

  • When should a child know that they're adopted?

    My daughter was given birth by a mother who is a sex trafficking victim.

    My daughter was given birth by a mother who is a sex trafficking victim. This is something we're not planning to go into details with her until she's much older (or won't even bring up if she never asks). She can already have the feeling that she's somehow "different", but can't put it into words. She explains how she has different hair and eyes than the rest of the family and doesn't look like her older brother. Lately, my daughter has been questioning us and trying to explain her observations. When should we tell her?

    My ex and I split up 10 months ago, our son is 4. His dad comes to see him every other weekend, when he picks our son up or drops him off he pesters me to sleep with him. He buys me things like he bought me a TV and I accepted because it was mainly so our son could watch cartoons but usually when it is jewellery or some other gift just for me I decline. When he drops our son off I try and keep him at the door and not let him in but he just walks right through me. Sometimes he is kind of forceful and I have to push him off. It is kind of my fault because sometimes when I have a low moment I invite him over but I haven't done that in over 2 months. Also, he sends me messages asking me to take him back and he wants to be a family, he even proposed to me 4 months ago. I declined I don't want him back. I am going to have to see him a lot over the holidays he is spending Christmas Day with us and I can't put up with him pestering me for sex and trying to get me to take him back. What should I do to get him to stop? I flat out reject him a lot but he won't take no for an answer.

    My neighbours are about to travel around the world for a year while homeschooling their kids, two teenage boys. They have been planning this for years and I am a seasoned traveller so I've been a big part of helping them. Now, all of a sudden, they are saying they are going to invite one of their son's friends and his young sister along, as they are going through a very rough family time. This just seems very suspicious to me and I worry for the younger girl with three teenage boys. I don't know why they would do this if their intentions were good, especially since I am quite sure it is not cheap to include the other two.

  • How do I teach my 6 year old son to respect women?

    Best answer: At 6, I seriously doubt this is about not respecting women. And it would be insane to start down that road with a little kid like this. Lots of boys at that age don't like girls. What you need to pay attention to is the behavior getting him in trouble. If you grounded him for not liking girls, this makes... show more

What you need to pay attention to is the behavior getting him in trouble. If you grounded him for not liking girls, this makes no sense. He needs to understand he got grounded because he can't misbehave in school.
