• I’m a college student who lives with my parents is that okay or weird?

    I recently heard about that 30 year old guy who’s been evicted from his parents home and for some reason that story is giving me a lot of anxiety despite the fact I’m much younger than that. Still, I’m a young adult going to college. I also help out a lot at home and my mom is actually more so of my best friend now than she is my parent. My mom seems to love to have me around. So I don’t know why I’m feeling such anxiety. I just am. I’m not lazy, I work really hard, I have a 4.0 gpa going. I’ve also recently filled out an application for a child care position to make some money as I go to school and to also get more experience in the field I’m majoring in which is Early Childhood Education. I’m motivated to make something of myself I just want to do it while living with my parents because I’m a girl and I’m truthfully petrified of living on my own because you hear stories of young women like me getting raped and all kinds of scary things happening to them so I just feel safer living with my parents. I’m so scared I can’t stop panicking all because of that stupid story about that 30 year old.

He knows the situation and I feel pissed off to the fullest , he pays nothing toward the car at all so he’s cruising around with them at my expense. Not to mention that day he also got a ticket for dropping them home. Problem is now I do not trust him in my car, I’ve told him never to do it again as I have offered to pick his kids up with him but he’s always declined so now I don’t trust him at all. How do I get pat this ?

    I know your supposed to love your family members but what if they are completely useless and worthless trash that makes everyone else miserable? He is 26 living back at home with us but he’s constantly making everyone in the house miserable. He has 0 respect for people and will treat people like trash because he’s like 230 pounds and is bigger than everyone. He even treats his mom like trash even though she practically just let him back into her home free of charge. He just likes to use people and whenever he doesn’t get his way he always has to threaten somebody. He’s literally 26 years old that still shows characteristics of an ungreatful and selfish 8 year old! I hate him so much and I don’t care if he’s family. Some people on this earth are literally worthless trash and because of it they like to ruin others lives and make them miserable as long as they’re in his presence. How can I learn to tolerate him even though I hate his guts inside out?!!

    My husband says he's tired of feeling like a child asking for money from our joint bank account. I offered to get him his own debit card, he refuses. I've asked him to get involved in the bills, he refuses. Not he wants to have separate bank accounts and him only pay half of the bills. We make the same amount per hour, he us eligible for over time I am not. His 2 adult (25 year old) kids live here and he refuses to make them pay anything. They both make good money. Now that he wants to separate the accounts I feel they should be made to pay. So what's the fair way to split the bills?

    I keep hearing over and over that my nephew has behavior problems at school, and at home. He's actually getting good grades, he is smart, so he can make a minimum effort and still get As. I went 2 weeks to my hometown to visit my family. WOW! My nephew is really bad. When I was both a kid and a teen, I got angry at my parents. But I never ever called them a bad name. My nephew misbehaves a lot. But that could because he's a boy full of energy. I was very hyper too, but I stopped when my parents told me to stop. My nephew will not stop no matter how many times my sisters tells him to behave. The thing that worries me the most, is how he call bad names to adults. He calls his mother, his father, his grandparents, his teachers, and me bad names. Calling my parents bad names is a line that I never crossed not even as a teen.

  • Can you as parents stop teens 14-18 from having sex?

    Best answer: No. All you can hope is that you gave them some values (mostly by YOUR actions, your example) and that they know how to have safe sex and have access to adequate contraception techniques. By age 14+, it is way too late to have an influence on their attitudes. Your psychological parenting (in terms of shaping... show more

    By age 14+, it is way too late to have an influence on their attitudes. Your psychological parenting (in terms of shaping them) ends when they are pre-teens .. middle/late grades of elementary school.

  • If my baby daddy isn't on the birth certificate, can I still put him on child support somehow?

    Best answer: You're not a "b", but you sound incredibly immature and naive. First, it doesn't matter what's on the birth certificate. If you say he's dad, and he agrees, that's that. If he says he isn't, you'd tell him the court will order a DNA test. Second, YOU don't put him... show more
    Best answer: You're not a "b", but you sound incredibly immature and naive.

    First, it doesn't matter what's on the birth certificate. If you say he's dad, and he agrees, that's that. If he says he isn't, you'd tell him the court will order a DNA test.

    Second, YOU don't put him on child support. The court does this, and when it happens, he gets visitation rights. You really don't know this? So when you say you don't want your child picking up his dad's bad habits, it's a little late in the game to worry about this.

    Finally, the worse you make him sound, the worse YOU sound. As bad as he is, you slept with him and somehow managed to get pregnant. The victim here is your child, and if you never forget that, odds are higher this will end better for him or her.

    PS - People saying he has to take a DNA test before he gets parental rights are wrong. This only applies if he denies paternity. Obviously if he wants parental rights, he's not denying paternity. If that changes, that's when the DNA test is ordered.

    Hello. I am a 23 year old female college student. I dorm in my college however my college is in the same city as where my parents live. I see my father every Sunday for 5-6 hours (it is regimented- he does not let me break it) I see my mother every Tuesday 4-5 hours and every Thursday 2-3 hours(also regimented and I'm not aloud to cancel on them).Aside from the above; I get good morning messages every morning at 8 am from them both . If separately I don't answer within 15 minutes they start calling my phone and don't stop calling until I answer. If I do answer then they stop messaging for the time being and wait until around 11 am and ask me through text what I am doing(the same cycle starts again) and they text me these texts asking me what I am doing and who I am with approximately 10-12 times a day every day. They also phone every day and we talk on the phone for about 3-4 minutes. I don't mean to sound like an ungrateful daughter but I cant take much more of this. I have spoken to them both (separately and together) on many occasions and explained how this bothers me and asked them to stop however they simply answer by saying ' You are our only daughter and we do it because we love you.' then they cry and the cycle starts over again. I need help. How do I handle this? I am going stir crazy.

  • If you talk to someone everyday you're going to get attached right?

    Because being together feels different and is different from talking through some electronic media.

    Talking a lot is attachment alright. But when all you have is talking, then this is a poor quality attachment that might break, when the circumstances change.
