• How to control my 6 year old nephew?

    He's been acting up, he's always visiting and acts like our house is his castle; he takes away the remote when someone is watching tv in any room so he can watch his dumb youtubers; he yells and smacks anyone who doesn't do what he says, and my mom is just trying to be the favorite grandparent and she... show more
    He's been acting up, he's always visiting and acts like our house is his castle; he takes away the remote when someone is watching tv in any room so he can watch his dumb youtubers; he yells and smacks anyone who doesn't do what he says, and my mom is just trying to be the favorite grandparent and she lets him do anything he's gained so much weight eating all of our foods and I've told my mom this is how people end up obese but she only listens to him and buys him all this pizza and happy meals whenever he ask which is every hour. He makes hugemesses and blames it on us because they only trust him, I mean even during Christmas my parents bought him all these toys he wanted and all I got was one video game from them that I didn't even want and lots of clothes I didn't even like. They don't listen to us when we tell them how he acts; the worst part is when he hits my dogs for no reason, that's when I finally decide to yell at him and sometimes smack him; but my parents just say "He's just a kid let him do what he wants!"

  • 16 year old daughter keeps asking me for rides?

    My 16 year old daughter keeps asking me for rides to her work, which is 15 minutes away. Sometimes she works 5 days in a row .

    My 16 year old daughter keeps asking me for rides to her work, which is 15 minutes away. Sometimes she works 5 days in a row . Often times these are at bad hours such as dinner time or late night closing shifts. I am just feeling that it is getting out of hand. Today I told her that I can drive her to her 10:45 am shift tomorrow, but I won't be able to pick her up after 2:45 because I want to go golfing with my son and she got quite upset about it. I just feel that since she is making so much money, I should get some gas money . I brought it up to her and she said that it is not fair since my son (her older brother) does not buy and of his own food. This is true, she usually buys her own food. She also has given me gas money, but reluctantly. I just am very inconvienced by the hours and how far away her work is. Should I stop giving her rides or should I make her pay for the gas? Am I wrong to think this?

  • Is this inappropriate for siblings?

    like sitting close together on the couch and sharing a blanket with some light cuddling. nothing sexual of course, they just do it because they have a good relationship and are happy to have each other. this cuddling is simply nice and comforting to them.

    I just hate it here. I m not suicidal I don t really want to die but I just want to disappear. My mom is horrible to me. Sometimes I ask her to spend the weekend hanging out with me but she yells at me and usually sleeps over at different guys houses. Sometimes she brings them home while I m there and sleeps with them. She has brought abusive men but she never tried to defend me. She s let me be abused without saying anything. She posts about me on Facebook and lets her friends and our family comment bad things about me. She ll play victim and post about how she "can t do anything right" and how I always "force her to stay home" when she never does. My whole family thinks I m a bad person because they don t know my mom is abusive to me mentally and sometimes physically, they just think I m a brat and she lets them think that. Any time she starts talking to a new guy she leaves home for days and stays with them. My dad doesn t have room for me and my stepmom and step siblings kind of make me want to stay with my horrible mom. This has been going on since I was 12, in almost 16 now. I just want to disappear and leave and not tell anyone where I m going but I m a broke 15 year old who really just wants to spend time with her family but no one is ever willing to talk to me. I m not looking for more people to tell me im spoiled or a brat. There s a lot more that s happened I just can t shorten it all. I ve heard enough of that I just want to know how I can leave. Advice?

Also if I tell them that all my friends have it, they will counter it By saying that's is our family and this is how we do things. All they want me to do is study (which I already do) till my brain explodes :(

  • All parents out there, how would you feel if your teenage son liked to being naked and did a lot of things naked in inside the home only?

    How would you feel if he told you he thinks there is nothing wrong with being naked in front of others. If he walks naked out of shower, when changing, sleeps naked, etc. Would you accept his opinion that there is nothing wrong with the naked human body and also he is your child not stranger its not a big deal.

    I'm thirteen, my mum has smoked since before I was born. She doesn't bother to go outside or to even open a window when she's smoking and I'm in the same room. I have asthma, its never been very bad but I think the smoke is starting to mess with it, its harder to breath and when she smoking near me it hurts. She's tried to stop before but failed. Ever since I was little I told her it was bad for me and to at least not smoke when I'm in the room, I'm glad she can't smoke in the car with me anymore though, that was the worse. Doesn't she even care about me? I guess I could just stay in my room all day instead of coming downstairs though, that would solve the problem I guess.

  • Why do most people now only have 2 kids the most?

    Best answer: Historically there are three main reasons to have large families. 1. No matter what people say they believe, people have sex even when they don't want children and birth control was less effective or non-existent previously. 2. If you are running a farm or business, having many children was a way of having... show more
    Best answer: Historically there are three main reasons to have large families. 1. No matter what people say they believe, people have sex even when they don't want children and birth control was less effective or non-existent previously. 2. If you are running a farm or business, having many children was a way of having cheap, available labor and 3. infant and child mortality was much higher in the past and to ensure that you had some children that would survive to adulthood, you needed a lot.

    Now the cost of having children is not offset by their ability to contribute to the family's welfare, i.e by working on the farm or business, most if not all of them will survive to adulthood and we have effective ways to prevent pregnancy when having sex...

    We got into an argument over some really minor mistake I made (dropping food on the floor). I immediately started cleaning up my mess, but the situation erupted into a mountain from a molehill. He started making VERY insulting remarks to me, and I told him "f*ck you". This provoked him to physically assault me, rip my eyeglasses off my head, and throw them in my dark bedroom. I can BARELY SEE where I'm going without them, and had to feel around for them in the dark while trying not to step on them. He seems to think he deserves an apology, even though he's equally at fault for the way he acted towards me Who should apologize here?

  • Should children be homeschooled?

    Kids get homeschool for different reasons (e.g bullying, fame, are wealthy, or school is unable to provide a good environment). However, if the children are none of the above, should they be getting homeschooled? Some individuals think that children will have difficulties socializing with others. I've heard... show more

However, if the children are none of the above, should they be getting homeschooled? Some individuals think that children will have difficulties socializing with others. I've heard that it's not very good for children to be the only student. Yes, they'll receive the same or better education but the main concern would be social interactions.

    I'm visiting home right now and my sister has become something else. I'm 22 and she's 17, almost 18. She goes out at night which isn't a problem in and of itself, but she goes out way past the legal curfew by as much as coming home at 3AM. She yells at our parents, refuses to do chores, and is overall petty and disrespectful. Last night she came home at 1AM and said she was at work. Her restaraunt closes at 10PM, and she is a hostess. She's not in the back washing dishes or anything like that. I bring up the things my parents told me about then she said to piss off. I told her she's acting like a damn child then she tried to slap me. She missed so I grabbed her arms and told her if she does that again, she's getting an assault charge. She's a grown *** woman, it's time she be treated like one. To be honest I feel like it's because my parents let her get away with a lot of things.
