    I made my boyfriend leave this last week. We have 2 girls together. they are 6 and 8. We've spent 8 1/2 years together. Its the third time I've kicked him out this year. He won't stop drinking so much. He's a hardcore alcoholic. I feel as tho we've stuck it out together for so long because of the girls. Also the 8 yr old has autism so support is very much needed from both parents. But at the same time, he drinks to much, smokes to much, and gambles to much. Not to mention he can't seem to carry his entire weight financially. My head tells me I'm doing the right thing but my heart is killing me!! Please tell me what you think!! I haven't been the best girlfriend but he isn't exactly the4 best man either. He's more than great with the girls. I've given so many chances! Please tell me if you think i'm doing the right thing or not!!

    I'm an Individual Provider for my mom and I get paid through the state. One of the topics that is greatly discussed at the training is to report any kind of suspected abuse. Now here's the situation, My mom said something to my 5yr old niece (her grand child) that might of been slightly out spoken. Well my brother (it's his daughter) and her mother are going through a very complicated divorce. The mother takes a lot of things the wrong way. My niece went back to her moms house and told her mom what grandma said and the mother got upset about it and would not stop texting my mom and was greatly upsetting her. My mom's health is really poor right now and she gets anxiety really easily. My mom was really upset and was trying to hide it because she's in fear that if she says anything, she won't ever get to see her grandchild again. This happens a lot! I can't even count how many times my brother's ex has upset my mom and made her cry over the years. Now that I'm in a position to hold her accountable for her actions, I don't know if I want to cross that line or not. I think I should contact her and ask her to speak to me, or my brother about her concerns instead of discussing them with our mom. She is a vulnerable adult and can't handle the stress! By the way, we're native american and my brother's ex is not. What she accidentally told my niece (her grand child) was that her mother is not a member of our tribe and shouldn't be digging on our beach. She may have been out of line and we tried to explain what she meant about it but I guess we didn't get through to her. I'm afraid she'll use something like this during the divorce with my brother.

  • Have you ever brought your autistic child to Great Wolf Lodge?

    I want to bring her badly and was looking to find some guidelines or experiences before i came to a decision. She's 7 and loves water! She seems to need over stimulation when it comes to her physical being. Bright lights and certain loud sounds can bother her sometimes

    We found out our daughter is autistic this last March. Since then I've been trying to quit drinking. The relationship between her father and I has been slowly depleting because I don't want to drink anymore. Things between us weren't going well at all. I decided to have a few drinks and ended up getting really drunk and I cheated on him. I have to quit drinking all together now. I made a horrible mistake that I would not have done if I weren't drinking. He doesn't want to quit. As a matter of fact, he gets mad at the thought of it. Everything that's ever gone wrong in our relationship has happened when we were drinking. He cheated on me before and he's lost a lot of money to gambling at casinos. I should just move out right? My daughter needs a special diet and I can't afford to pay for alcohol anymore. He gets mad when I try to tell him these things. I need help please! I truly made a bad mistake. He's forgiven me for it but doesn't want to stop drinking.

I'm scared he's always going to be a lazy bum. Right now he's at a poker tournament. Not doing the yard work on this beautiful sunny day. I feel like I need him to leave and make him be responsible for himself. I'm tired of acting like his mother.
