• 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.

She picked a bike that she wanted for her birthday, a teenage mutant ninja turtles bike and I told the girl that the bike was for boys and I could help her pick out a nice girly bike. The father asked his daughter to tell me what her favourite TV show was and then told me to get the bike she originally asked for. I said I was only trying to help her and he told me I should let children be children and stop enforcing gender stereotypes onto toys. Wtf

    I found out that my neighbor is a sex offender, she is on a website and it says her offenses are LEWD OR LASCIVIOUS ACTS WITH A CHILD UNDER 12 YEARS OF AGE and also "CONTINUOUS SEXUAL ABUSE OF CHILD". It says the last time she was convicted was in 2014. Her birthdate is 9/25/88 which means that she would have been 26 at the time. She always talks to my daughter who is 7 and also my son who is 12. Do you think i should tell them to stop talking to her? What should i do? i never expected this from her. She is a nice pretty lady. Also, should i tell the other neighbors? i am freaking out.

  • 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.

  • Would you let your 14 yr old daughter date?

    Would you or would you not allow dating at that age if they came to you and asked beforehand? Asking shows they are interested, so as a parent how will you handle that? Would you be open minded and set rules when it comes to it or is it a flat out no? And why?

  • Is my 6 year old daughter jealous?

    Best answer: It's probably emotionally very hard for her, she depends on you for love and now she sees your love directed at someone else in addition to her... She probably would struggle to identify what she is feeling but insecurity and feeling threatened may be part of it. Let her know her she will be loved deeply. ... show more
    Best answer: It's probably emotionally very hard for her, she depends on you for love and now she sees your love directed at someone else in addition to her... She probably would struggle to identify what she is feeling but insecurity and feeling threatened may be part of it.

    Let her know her she will be loved deeply. Maybe your boyfriend can, with you involved, begin to give her warm hugs and small gifts, to let her know she is important to him too. The two of you should take her out to dinner or have a special meal at home together so she feels a part of what you are instead of like an outsider.

    And seriously consider waiting to be married before moving in. You don't want her to have the instability of knowing this man then breaking up, she needs consistency and love. A nice community like a church would also help with community and stability.

  • Is this normal for a teen?

    Everyday I get on my kid for a number of things. Like, "time for bed" "time to stop" "time to eat", you know, the normal things. However, last night go me thinking. Is this actually normal for her age? Just last night she ended up staying up late doing homework. I'd told her it was time for supper two hours ago, she said she'd go in a few minutes. However, she repeated this several times. After two hours, i finally got fed up so I went to her room again and lectured her about what happens when one does not get proper nutrition. Of course, as any teen would, she tried to ignore me. So I did as any mother would, remind her to look at me when I'm talking to her. I also established what was to happen next year (her next semester. It's after winter break, which is a week close): which was that I would turn off her bedroom lights regardless of whether she is finished with work or not. But the puzzing thing about this whole situation was this: I felt like I was scolding a 9 year old rather than a 16 year old. I realize that every mother and teen goes through something similar, but is this really how this should go?

  • Parents, are you okay with graphic advertising on drugs?

    Was driving around with my kids today and saw a huge billboard saying something along the line of “daddy’s favourite little girl-now he’s selling her out for a hit of meth”. I couldn’t help but think this was a little much for children to be exposed to so readily!

    My 12 year old son has his iPhone since 11th birthday. I see his life is increasingly dependent on the phone. He socials with his friends in Instagram which we're following it; he does research when there is question about homework but he does many fun things with it too. Some of his friends do not have full access to their phone whom he become distant over time. He now has friends who have pretty much full phone access. For the past months, we're increasingly struggled to get him focus on doing his homework. He would watch videos and doing homework at the same time, to the point that for the past few days, he couldn't finish his homework until passed 11PM. In addition to the phone issue, computer is a problem too. School now requires computer to do his homework. But he would have video or game on when doing homework. Lots of times we can't even tell whether he is doing his homework or playing game we're not able to stay over his shoulder all the times. I'm thinking I need to install parental control app in the computer which I know there will be a "huge" standoff in the house when we try to do so. Any suggestion and experience to share?
