  • How do I teach appreciation to a 15 yr old? He has become unbearable to be around.?

    My 15 year old is disrespectful to myself, his dad, his stepdad, and at times strangers. He acts as if what he has is a privilege and is expected.

    My 15 year old is disrespectful to myself, his dad, his stepdad, and at times strangers. He acts as if what he has is a privilege and is expected. When I ask for help around the house he asks to move out, says that he didn't dirty anything, or asks what his sister has done. He raises his voice to me, argues w me, tries to tell me what he's doing instead of asking all the time. We cant talk anymore without a fight. He doesnt seem to care that his stepdad and I work 40-50hrs a wk each to provide the cable, internet, cell phone, trips to random activities, etc. His response is that he didn't ask for any of it. If i take that stuff away then we all go without. I know some of this is regular teen stuff but I'm so tired of it. Some days I dont even want to come home after work. He's been in counseling before for yrs.

    I've just turned 18 and so am legally an adult, both my parents are incredibly soft on my siblings and allow them to get away with whatever they want, regardless of how bad it is. Recently I've seen myself beginning to take control of disciplining the 2 in a more strict manner, of course, they both hate it because they're not used to being put in their place but sometimes I feel as though it's not my job to control these kids and that it should be left to my parents.

    Over the past few weeks, my children have been watching a popular children's television series which I believe is called "Dora the Explorer." last night, I decided to come sit with them while they watch television. However, this popular tv series known as Dora the Explorer" was incredibly racist. In short, all the american kids in this cartoon were laughing at a female girl who appeared to be a Mexican and was speaking spanish! All of the kids just stood there and laughed at her. I think this is setting a terrible example for my children, especially at this young age. Perhaps it would help to throw away all of their clothing so they have to go to school naked and embarrassed. I'm sure that would teach them a lesson. But I don't want to do that if I don't have to. Any advice is greatly appreciated Truly, Thomas Bobert.

  • How can I politely ask to be paid for babysitting?

    I babysit for a couple families and sometimes, after a late night out, they come home and it’s not on the top of their list to pay the babysitter. I’m awkward asking for money because I feel greedy and I’m hoping that someone has a good way to politely ask for babysitting money.

  • What have you found to be an effective way to discipline a child who misbehaved in school, without hitting them? Why or Why not?

    Best answer: You have to get to them BEFORE they start school. The kid needs to know that no means NO, AND that your discipline WILL happen if he doesn't shape-up. I have four kids, with the youngest now 37, & I don't ever remember actually having to spank any one of them. Which is good, as my oldest is bigger... show more

    When my daughter was little she had issues with aspiration. We were lucky enough to avoid the g-tube with thickened pediasure. She's 14 and her diet is exclusively pediasure, despite being capable of eating other food. When she was younger, we did feeding therapy after treating her reflux, including "forcing" her to take bites of foods when she refused. This took a significant amount of effort, and she would only do this during therapy. We ended the therapy at age 11. The only time she had a normal diet is when we went on vacation last. She ate everything from tilapia, soup, cake salad, pizza, etc. Our vacation is for a week. When we got back I offered her the same foods and she refused. I have tried just taking away her pediasure (which I have to remind her to drink) and she will just starve herself. We had her 14th birthday party at our house with no cake because she won't eat it. We had games and treats for the guests. She won't eat at school, at birthday parties, even when encouraged. Pediasure is her only source of nutrition and the only thing that's keeping her alive. I'm not sure if this is normal rebellion or if this is an actual eating disorder. I googled eating disorders in teens and most of it is anorexia and bulimia. My daughter is certainly not preoccupied with weight. Maybe perhaps she's extremely rebellious. I don't know.

    Best answer: I'm not against women. I think every man should own one.
    Just kidding!! Just kidding!!!

    In all seriousness, I am a teacher and have served under two female department heads. Both were wonderful bosses. Very skilled in their content area, excellent in terms of managing people, very supportive of their staff, etc... I have nothing but high praise for both of them.

    So to your point, anyone who draws a definite conclusion from someone who is a man/woman, black/white, religious/nonreligious, gay/straight, liberal/conservative, or whatever group you want to pigeonhole someone into is not being fair to the individual person.

  • How to tell my son I don't love him?sssssss?

    Best answer: At 8 years old it's too late to put him up for adoption. You might be able to pass him off to foster care, if you succeed then don't be surprised if it comes back to bite you on the backside. You know what would be funny?

    Best answer: At 8 years old it's too late to put him up for adoption. You might be able to pass him off to foster care, if you succeed then don't be surprised if it comes back to bite you on the backside. You know what would be funny? Is down the road when you're old and frail and you have no one to look after you. How long do you think you can sit in a diaper of your own filth until you finally mange to get someone to change you? How are you going to get to the grocery store? You're a selfish person.
