    Should I punish my child for cracking the screen of the Iphone I bought for them?

    My child cracked her iphone screen, and as you may assume, I am furious. She doesn’t have the money to fix the screen and I am not paying for it, but should I ground her? or accept it and understand that accidents happen?

    If you're a parent, would you have sex in your kids room on their bed?

    Even though kids are not making the money, still it would be wrong to disrespect them if a parent did that, because kids have feelings too

    People who are not parents can answer this question too

    Should I feel bad about babysitting?

    I'm a retired 65 year old woman.My daughter and my son in law have been having me watch their 6 year old child everyday for a year since Covid hit.So since Mar.2020.But I can't help to think their starting to take advantage of me.It seems I'm their main person to call even when they wanna go out at night even.It was just suppose to be in the day time 4 times a week from 2-6.But now it's everyday even for 1 of their date nights.Also they just assume I'll watch their child whenever.They are moving to a new place soon and when my daughter was talking to me about their moving day plans they said, "We're gonna start about 8 AM and I'm gonna I drop (Name) off at your house." They even had an unexpected thing last night where my son got called into work and my daughter was sleeping.He called me saying "I'm dropping name off." So it's WHENEVER they need a sitter they just assume and I just feel like I always have to be on call? Should I tell them how I feel about it?Plus this is all for free and if I may add their child is also very disrespectful to adults.Opinions please.

    My Dad can't stop making babies.?

    Let me tell you super weird but true story about my dad. My Dad has many kids from several different girls. He has 4 from his ex wife 1 from one of his hookups, 4 from his ex girlfriend, 6 from his other ex wife (my mom), and 1 from his current girlfriend who is expecting another child this year. So all together he has 16 kids. I've talked to him several times about birth control and all that. But he doesn't really listen or even care. He's immature, arrogant, and reckless. He thinks everything will miraculously workout. He says he doesn't believe in birth control. He says preventing child birth is just like killing a baby. There wouldn't be a baby if he used protection in the first place! He says that he will continue to have unprotected sex, and that if his girlfriend gets pregnant, so be it. He says that if a baby is made it's "meant to be". He doesn't think of the consequences of having children. There are responsibilities, financial aspects, and other factors to having kids. We are already financially unstable, and his parenting isn't the best. He can be manipulative, neglactive, impulsive, and immature. And he's getting old. He's already 60! And his girlfriend is 25. How will she take care of the kids when he's gone? Even now, how does he expect to take care of the new kids, when he is barely taking care of the current ones? He seems to be scared of being alone. He also seems to be somewhat addicted to sex/ porn. will he ever stop? This isn't normal, please help.

    Is there really a right and a wrong way to raise your child?

    Favorite Answer:

    Make them good people. That's about it. If they are good people then you raised them right. Whether that's with spanking or not, if you teach them empathy then that's all you can ask for. I didn't teach my kids table manners (I was never taught myself) but if they see another child getting bullied, they are the first ones there defending the child being bullied and I'm extremely proud of that.

    Does my boyfriend see my kids as a burden?

    I told him that if it weren't for my kids I may have ended my life by now. His response was "I think if you didn't have kids then you'd be out there living your best life and wouldn't have wanted to kill yourself". I know a lot of you think he is correct. But this is not the case for me. Should I assume my kids are a burden to him if this is his first automatic reaction? Can a relationship work when one partner thinks this way when kids are involved? Seems like he will assume life with me won't be as rewarding as it could be if I didn't have kids.

    Have you been vaccinated for COVID? If so, how did it go? If not, why?

    This has been a debate or questionable topic, so it made me curious to ask. Explain your experience if you have gotten vaccinated. And if you haven't, explain why you won't or haven't yet.

    As an adult, why do I have to raise myself?

    Favorite Answer:

    Why are you still whining about this? As an adult, why can't you raise yourself? It's never been easier to learn the things you need to learn. You've got an entire library/encyclopedia/cookbook/financial manager at your fingertips if you have a computer. Do some research, start making decisions and get on with your life. Your parents didn't teach you what you wanted to know, so you will have to learn it yourself. 

    Call your community college, make an appointment with an academic advisor and take a career aptitude test. It will help you define your interests and how they relate to specific careers. The academic advisor can discuss specific career programs that they offer which you should be able to complete in two years. But you have to motivate yourself to accomplish something with your life instead of expecting your parents to do it for you.

    Spanking my kid?

    My daughter refuses to listen to us no matter what we do. I’ve always refused to spank my children but recently I’m in the verge. She refuses to do her homework, she is mean to her brother, she breaks things. We have tried taking things away, putting her in the corner, having her write in a journal about why she did the naughty thing she did. But today she slammed the journal on my hand, refuses to sit in the corner. If I just leave her be and throw a tantrum she will stomp her feet. My family says to spank her, I’ve heard mixed messages about this but I’m at my wits end. What do I do?

    Should parents be jailed for their kids' violent behaviour?

    Favorite Answer:

    Some kind of punishment, definitely yes, but I also think that every person, even a child, should be responsible for their actions.

    Prison for a parent of such a child is a bit too much

    What does it mean if my husband feels tingly from spanking?

    My husband has informed me that he is getting a "tingly feeling" when spanking our daughter.  She is 9yo and frequently needs spankings due to misbehavior (probably 2-3 times daily).  He administers the spankings bare bottom over his knee.

    Am I the only person that is Noticing that it is no longer acceptable to give your kids boundaries or discipline?

    I don’t know if you noticed it’s growing wave where are you supposed to not give kids any discipline. Or you are just supposed to take away something in the room or their cell phone as if they going to die without it.
