  • 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.

    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.

  • If a person lives with their parents, does it automatically mean they're a freeloader?

    I'm 22 and work full-time as a cashier/stocker at a grocery store. It's not a high paying job, but I really enjoy what I do. I've been putting a decent amount of my money into savings and help buy some groceries for the house. However, my sister (who's 16) keeps giving me a hard time that I'm "taking the easy way out" because I didn't go to college along with working. She says that a person should go even if they're not interested because it's a "life experience". She also keeps saying that if a person isn't trying to get out on their own, they're a freeloader. Is this true?

  • My great-uncle is a racist. What do I say at the family reunion this weekend when he meets my African-American boyfriend?

    Best answer: You just introduce them and play the avoidance game. Ideally Uncle will keep his views to himself.

    I struggle with this so much. My father had colon cancer in 2014. It was in remission in 2015 and he was healthy in 2016. He lives in NY and i live in CA. My wedding was July 2016. Before the wedding, he never asked me about the wedding at all. Except one time: he asked if he'll be walking me down the aisle. We had a horrible relationship including physical abuse to my mother and he is an alcoholic. We didn't speak for years. So I evaded the question and said I don't know how traditional the ceremony will be, as my husband and I lived together for over 10 years at that point Additionally, he reached out to my mom (divorced in 1999) for the first time in 2016. She was home for her dad's funeral and she wasn't in the mood for it. He was all about making amends post cancer but she was grieving and still angry at him. Disaster. So, my invitations went out and his was the only RSVP I didn't get back. I eventually had to ask him if he was coming. He said he hadn't been feeling well and his doctors were doing tests and told him not to fly. My husband has had severe medical issues and no doctor of his would ever say "don't fly to your daughters wedding" without a diagnosis. So he didn't come. We spoke on the phone after the honeymoon and he mentioned "a new swimming pool with a high dive board" that he started going to and was the only adult diving from! HOWEVER he actually had the cancer come back in January 2017. So confusing for me and I feel like if I ask I'm calling him a liar.

    so i am 18 and recently i have been thinking about the fact that i have many photos of myself and few of my mum and from my grandparents generation so because of their importance i would like to not end up throwing them away because that is kind of wrong in many ways so this eventually made me think about people that have watches or jewellery or sentimental improtant things from their grandparents generation and how they will pass those items onto their own kids as well as their own things i feel like few generations down the line so many sentimental objects will accumulate and it can even take time and space in the house for example to look after all of those things , another situation where it can be a burden is when families move house and they essentially have a bunch of things they have to carry vround with them and look after. they may even end up wanting to get rid of it but because its been passed down for so many generation its value is pricelessand one will end up not doing so so my uestion is has does anyone agree with my view that it can be a burden to pass things down each generation - also sorry for the incredibly bad grammar my keyboard is broken

  • 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

    Hi i'm Parker and i'm 13 years old. My mom wants me to live with my aunt because sometimes i don't clean up after myself or do my chores. And because i am disrespectful. Last week my mom took away my phone because I had online friends. I face-timed with them all the time, it was clear that they were real people. So now that i don't have my phone, I feel like i have no reason to do anything. My mom always tells people that i'm so spoiled and all this other stuff but, i never have my hair done, or my nails, or ever have clothes that i didn't wear 1000 times. We hardly go out to eat or do anything. My mom only work 1-3 days and doesn't pay any of the bills, my dad does. But anyways, do ya'll think this is reasonable, when there are kids that are way worst than me?

    I don't even know where to start with this. All I can say is I'm scared, really scared. I was clinically diagnosed with depression. I've had it forever now it feels. When I was diagnosed my mother called me a fake, told me nothing I feel is real and that I'm doing it for attention. She told everyone in my family to "not listen to her" and "she's lying, she's fine." They believed her over me, and most of them told me "you shouldn't joke around with things like that." That was 5 years ago and I've been dying on the inside ever since. I want someone to listen, but I can't seem to get the words out. I want to get help, but I can't afford it. My family won't help me, I have no one else to turn to. My parents neglected me and my kidbrother for most our lifes. They turned to illegal drugs when their lives went down. Which caused my life to be miserable, I don't even know about my kidbrother's. I was robbed 3 times in 2 days. Only me. This only happened because my parents turned our house open to people on the street, the kind of people who won't help themselves also the kind who would rather buy drugs than a home. My parents even claimed they hate me, wished I was never born after. They told me this directly. I had things taken from me that I worked for. Somethings that really meant a lot to me and if I can't talk to my own family...then I don't know who I can talk to. I don't have money for help and I don't want to face my family for it. I want to know I'm not alone. I'm scared.

    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.
