• My 16 year old son got expelled from school today?

    Best answer: Take the game away from him, now. you control all of his reasources, so take them all away. Make up a list of jobs he needs to do around the house for you, in order to justify his very existence. Make it his responsibility to find an outside job so he can pay you back the $250. Go down to the local fire department... show more

    Go down to the local fire department and ask the guys to help your son understand why it is a crime to pull a fire alarm. he needs to hear it from the guys how they can actually die just rushing to any call, and how pulling the fire alarm for kicks puts them and everyone else in danger. It will carry much more weight if he hears it from them, and you need all the help you can get in turning him into a less bored, more engaged young man. Maybe he'll even decide to become a firefighter. Call the station on their non-emergency number and ask for help with him.They'll understand.

  • Have you ever see anyone naked by accident or on purpose? And has anyone seen you naked by accident or on purpose?

    You cannot be held responsible for unintended public exposure that was not your fault so I wouldn't worry about it.

  • What too do when you got your phone taken away?

    Best answer: Write your friends letters. You'll be surprised how much fun it can be, and if they play along, you can chat back and forth- but you tend to be more careful about what you say, which is actually a good exercise, both ins self control and in how you treat a friend.

    You might also read some books. Check this out:
    https://www.amightygirl.com/
    Show your mom this website, and ask if you can get some books out of the library or order them. reading is a great way to escape, and this site has some wonderful books.

    Read some cookbooks. Try out a few recipes- offer to cook dinner for your family. That could be a really great experience, and you might really like it.

    Ask your mom about when she was your age. Write some of the stories down, so you have them. I'll bet your parents could both tell you some good ones about stuff they did, and chances are good they didn't even have cell phones. We all had to pass notes, use a pay phone or run home and call each other- and we only had phones at home!If we were punished, we got grounded,meaning we couldn't go anywhere but home. We couldn't just use the phone and text back and forth- everything was in person or on the home phone. It's amazing we lived!

  • Parents are super strict?

    Best answer: Sometimes it helps to have another adult talk to your parents. Do you have an aunt or an uncle? Ask them for help. BUt decide what it is you really want- because it will also cost something, somehow. Being a step dad isn't easy, and he may not know what other kids are doing.

    Do you have an aunt or an uncle? Ask them for help. BUt decide what it is you really want- because it will also cost something, somehow.

    Being a step dad isn't easy, and he may not know what other kids are doing. He also may not care- parents don't get their ideas from kids, but they may listen to other parents. And you may also find yourself just waiting to get to 18 before you get to do fun things late at night- but there is still plenty of time. You're only 13, and that's very young. Just keep in mind that people like your stepdad who may not have much experience, don't want anything to go wrong. It may be horrible, but he's really trying to protect you, and it isn't easy for him,either. I had one of those, and had to be in by 10 in my senior year. Just know it's a lot better than not having a dad at all.

  • What is your philosophy on telling teens how to dress?

    I'm a believer in letting kids decide how to dress, but I'm having a strange issue with my daughter.

I've heard parents complain that their teen won't wear a hat or dress warm enough in the winter, but I have the opposite problem. My daughter LOVES wearing this full suit every day to school. Should I gently encourage her to dress less warmly or let her decide how she dresses? https://i.imgur.com/QDbhMd7.jpg

    I know once it ends in “teen” it’s a teenager but are 17 year olds considered teenagers. I feel like 17 is a little bit old.

    Best answer: (1) You couldn't be pregnant from the "last time" you had sex, because you had a menstrual period after you had sex. You could be pregnant from the sex you had "the other day".
    (2) YOU don't keep a condom from breaking - that's your boyfriend's job. It's very rare for a condom to "break". When it does, it's usually because the guy is wearing a condom that is either too small or too large; or he's been carrying it around in his wallet for so long that the latex condom is beginning to break down.
    (3) Where can I buy the pill? WHICH pill - the birth control pill or the morning-after pill? The morning-after pill (Plan B) can be bought in any pharmacy.There is no age-resriction on its use and you don't need prescription. The birth control pill can be obtained only from a doctor, following a pelvic exam. The doctor will write you a prescription, and you take the prescription to a pharmacy and pay to have it filled. If you're under 18 years of age, you doctor must have your parents' signed consent before he is allowed to prescribe birth control pills for you.
    (4) The info on the rules on taking Plan B is enclosed inside every package of Plan B. Two of the "rules" are: (a) You must take it within 72 hours of having unprotected sex. (b) If you're already ovulating when you take it, it won't do you a bit of good. Plan B helps prevent pregnancy by delaying the onset of ovulation. It can't delay what has already begun.

    Best answer: I wouldn't let my 14 year old, or 4 year old for that matter, out of the house with leggings and no skirt or tunic over them. I know it's the fashion now, but the fact is, they show too much. No one should be out looking as if they're only wearing tights.

    There are guys- many of them men- who are looking at you in a way you may not realize yet, and it's much worse if they can see all of you. Put on a little mini skirt or a tunic that covers your rear and your front, and you'd be fine. Leggings aren't pants- they're heavy tights. You have every right to keep what you have for someone special. It doesn't have to be everyone.

    This isn't about being dowdy and no fun- it's about demanding respect. Think about this- you don't see any boys running around in tights, right? And you won't, unless they're gymnasts or dancers. Demand the same amount of respect that a boy gets, and keep your private areas private, because they ARE looking, and people who wear leggings uncovered are letting them. It doesn't make you a "ho", but it's a poor choice.

    Good for you for asking.
