    My sister in law eats meat and I don't want her at my summer get together?

    I'm having a gathering in July for my pre wedding get together, all girls, friends and family.

    I already invited my five closest besties. We're all vegan and I also invited my mom and aunt who are vegan as well. So I have a problem. I have two sister in laws one is vegetarian BUT my other sister in law eats meat so I honestly don't want her there because it's going to 1 annoy the hell out of me and 2 she probably won't want tofu burgers for dinner because she didn't eat them last time and it's her problem not mine 

    Do you think it's okay to leave her out? Idk how to do it though 😐

    Do I have a right to feel the way I do about a baby shower?

    Favourite answer:

    Oh dear. She has completely railoraded you and sadly your husband isnt supporting you the way he should. OK we understand he doesnt want to upset his mother, but, he vowed to support you.

    Your shower includes everyone, I cant fathom why she wants to be seen as the main host for their family only.

    Your husband saying he wont go to your shower would be the final straw for me. Fine, dont go. Let him sulk with his mommy. They are trying to railroad you, where will that end?

    They will look foolish having a baby shower with no mother to be there. I just couldnt be manipulated by them like they are trying. MIL needs to learn her place, today

    Was it weird of me to tell my brother I love him ?

    I'm a 27-year old male, for the record. Anyhow, my boss died a few days ago and I guess it got me to reflect on how quick life can change, or even end altogether. 

    My brother turned 29 yesterday and I don't think I'd ever told him that I love him. Since he lives in another country I couldn't tell him in person, but I did text him and wished him a happy birthday and said I love him. He said he loves me too.

    Was it weird of me to tell my brother I love him?

    Would it be fair, if I told my mom to stop use speaker phone on every call. ?

     My mom is home all day (retired and has illness) and she usually is talking the on phone all day everyday. While I don't have a problem with that, she recently became lazy to hold the phone up to her ear, so now she puts it down and puts on the speaker button. It has become really annoying because I can hear all her conversations, but also the other people, on the other side of the phone can usually hear background sounds (me and my brother walking around, making food or going to work) so they complain and my mom after the call yells at us and tells us to be quiet and that we are disrespectful. My mom is on the phone all day, so she constantly wants no sound and wants us to literally go away when she's on the phone cause of the speaker but I don't understand why she can't just go off of speaker, so my brother and I can actually go around the house and do our things. We also pay the mortgage, with our rent. 

    Would It be unfair or rude if I asked my mom to stop using the speaker phone all the time?

    Help! My younger sister is depressed and won’t take care of herself.?

    A little backstory: My younger sister is turning 17 in a couple months and she still doesn’t know how to take care of herself. I just turned 19. We live with our grandmother because both of our parents have horrible severe mental health and drug addiction problems that have lasted our entire lives. They’re both in and out of our lives. I have an older sister who is 22 but she has an almost 2 year old and has basically moved out (all of her furniture is still here but she hasn’t lived here for a while now)

    So, basically, I’m really concerned. My younger sister doesn’t take care of herself.. she hasn’t been in school, basically dropped out and nobody cares to make it right... On a worse note, she doesn’t shower. She hasn’t showered in months and it always goes like that. She lets our mom bathe her.. No she does not have any physical disabilities, as a kid she was the energetic happy type. Now she doesn’t even get out of bed. All she does is watch streams on her laptop 24/7. Ive tried to get her to shower and every time I tell her I’ll teach her how to, she breaks down crying and starts hitting her head on the wall and yelling. I don’t know what to do. I’ve tried so hard to pick up the slack of my parents.. It’s gotten to a point where she only eats once a day. The only thing she has eaten for the past couple of years is hot dogs, eggs and toast.. and lately she’s only been eating hot dogs. Please somebody tell me what to do! If you’ve ever experienced anything similar lmk!! -A

    If I find marijuana in my brother Daniel‘s room should I notify our mom?

    Favourite answer:

    How old is your brother, how old are you? If he is a minor, as I assume he is, because he's living in his parents' home, I would absolutely tell your mother.  She is responsible for his welfare, education and preparation for adult life, and while its legal in some states for recreational use, it is still definitely out of bounds for minors.  Even though its prescribed in some instances for medical use, it can be a damaging and unhealthy substance. Look up the research on line !  Smoking is also extremely unhealthy , regardless of what the person is smoking. TELL YOUR MOTHER !

    Do you agree with my mum?

    My mum says that if you don’t like the food someone has made for you - it is better to keep it yourself to avoid hurting their feelings, than to tell them that you don’t like it.

    Is she right.

    How do I deal with my mother in this situation?

    This is my first year of college, and a little over a month ago I met this guy who I’ve become friends with. We’ve hung out a few times already and are doing fine. My mom wanted to meet him, so I introduced him to her. Except now I’m starting to regret that. My mom is strict and very overprotective of me. To sum it up, she basically still treats me like a child and I don’t have very much freedom. Ever since she met him she thinks we’re up to no good and that we’re considering dating, even though we are literally just friends. Now whenever I’m on my phone she constantly asks me if I’m texting him, and if so, what I’m saying to him and all. Plus she’s now telling me often that I’m too young to date (I’ve never been allowed to dated before). I understand she’s concerned, but her constant asking and annoying me, is starting to stress me and I don’t feel as comfortable at home anymore. And for whatever reason she tries to make me feel guilty about being friends with him. This guy works in the medical field already so he doesn’t drink, do drugs, or anything of that stuff, and she knows that. Every time we’ve hung out he’s acted like a gentleman and is very nice. I don’t understand why my mom is acting like this. I have kissed a guy in the past and I’ve never told her, because I’m sure she will get mad. I’m 18 and he’s 22. How do I get my mom to stop acting like this? Thanks

    My mom is becoming more stubborn the older she gets am I wrong as a man in my 30's to avoid her?

    I understand she's been somewhat stressed but I feel like she doesn't respect other people. I Every time I try to talk to her she gets extremely moody (Don't get me wrong I know it happens occasionally) but it's been insane the last few months. Like her attitude thinking she's always right when I want to disagree with her respectfully to her about things but I can't. I live on my own and I would go over there every other weekend I feel like I just want my space. 

    I know they say there will be a time she will pass and I won't be able to talk with her anymore but the older I get I been avoiding not just her but all my family and friends. The older I have got the more I've seen her true colors and the older I've got I'm starting to not really like her and I feel like a terrible person saying that...

    My boyfriend's family makes me uncomfortable?

    Okay so basically, I had a baby shower back in March and the time was from 1-3... however some of my friends stayed until 3:30 because they wanted to help me put everything away which was very sweet and I wasn't going to turn down any help being 9 months pregnant and all... so anyway we got everything put away before the wind started picking up and my boyfriend and I headed inside to start putting things away. 5 o clock rolls around and my boyfriend's grandparents come... and they accuse me of being racist because all of the party decor is put away! I wasn't sure if they were even still going to come because they knew what time the party took place and they came 2 hours later and hadn't answered my boyfriend all day. Anyways, my boyfriend and I still made time to talk to them but I was slightly offended that they accused me of being racist just because the party decorations were put away. I'm also a little hurt my boyfriend didn't say anything to them and just let them accuse me of being racist... (I'm white and my boyfriend and his family are mexican but I don't know what anyone is going to do with that info lol)

    My 20 years son posted his self harm scars on Instagram. How do I stop him from embarrassing me and his father?

    I've been getting calls from the whole family. I told him to stop it and took him to different doctors but all the pills are useless, they do nothing. He has Tourette and ADHD. He dropped out of high school after failing too many times. He says he can't handle the feeling of being a failure and decided to post his self harm scars. All my friends and the whole family are calling me asking questions. How to tell my son to keep such stuff to himself?

    My alcoholic grandma always says horrible things about me?

    Favourite answer:

    If moving out isn't an option then you honestly just have to deal with it. I know ignoring it will be hard especially her being loud. She wants attention. She is toxic and you do need to separate yourself from her before you have issues and questioning whether she is right. You can also do what the other person suggest and record her. But unfortunately alcoholics will not change unless they want to. They lie and play the victim. Since you know her routine you should go out for a walk or buy headphones and listen to music or something positive. I hope she doesn't bring you down. Good luck.

    Do you think I have a chance to save my son who gets joy out of torturing animals?

    He is 10 years old. He first started with burning ants with a microscope. We never acted on this but he eventually started moving to bigger animals like cats. We sent him to therapy but he still continues. We ask him why he does this and he said that he gets a joy out of it. 

    He is a very smart boy. He got promoted twice and is very advanced for his age. He skipped two grades and as of now, he is skinning cats and dissecting them in the garage. My husband says “oh, he’ll be a surgeon someday.” No, this is just an excuse for him to continue his hobby of torturing animals. 

    I know I already said this but I have to remind you again. He is very smart and I know he could have a bright future but I’m worried about this hobby he has. He is very charming and sweet. He always makes jokes and brings joy to any company he has.

    Child Custody advice?

    My sons father is currently at the halfway house and will be completely free in July. He has been in prison since our son was 1 for aggravated assault, possession of a firearm and robbery. He was also addicted to cocaine when he was arrested. Our son is 4 now and me and his father do not get along at all. He says he would like our sons last name changed when he is released. He never signed the birth certificate so he has my last name. he also want our son to come to his place which I am uncomfortable with knowing his past I don't trust him there with our son I rather him watch our son at his grandmothers house. He is extremely disrespectful. He cursed me out because He has to call my son and I don't make our 4 year old call him He also cursed me out because I don't tell him when he is at his grandmothers house when she asks for him so he could go see him when he is supposed to set up days with her for him to see him which he doesn't. He also cursed at me because my family doesn't like him so they don't allow him to come see our son at their homes. Also my fiancé is uncomfortable with him coming to our home as well. Most of his family wont help him with allowing him to see his son at their homes because of things he has done to them in the past. I understand that this may end just being a court case once he is completely released because we cant see eye to eye and cant communicate without him becoming disrespectful. Any advice for me?
