    Son gives his 98 years old mom a boot out of HER house.

    Wirelessly posted (droid) In my jurisdiction you can't undertake the care of an elderly person then throw them out. The point is that he accepted the duty to care for the parent and the parent relied on him. Different situation than just refusing to house a parent.

    Spanking kids can cause long-term harm: Canada study

    My father was abusive. My brother says that is was good for him. He only says this because he doesn't want to deal with the emotional damage. It's a form of denial. Really, our lives would have been so much better if we hadn't been abused. That's really sad so he can't go there.

    Spanking kids can cause long-term harm: Canada study

    Wirelessly posted (droid) Each kid has a "currency." Something he values and motivates him. Video games, computer access, social time, etc. For fighting, I charged both participants a fee, for my manicure to calm my frazzled nerves from their fighting, I told them. Highly effective! In the...

    Spanking kids can cause long-term harm: Canada study

    Wirelessly posted (droid) It's not the best parenting practice. Parents resort to it out of ineffectiveness and frustration. Positive enforcement works. Some people use choke collars to train dogs but I use liver. Kids aren't dogs, of course, but kids respond better to positive reinforcement...

    Father shoots daughter’s laptop after disrespectful Facebook post

    Those silly people. You scavenge the old machines for parts so you can build stuff. My kids have lost their computer privileges for minor things. Cleaning the basement is always a good consquence. For a while I charged money when they kids fought. Both parties had to pay. That stopped...

    Wirelessly posted (droid) Jiro, same if mom did it. It's crazy. It's like admitting that you can't handle your child and yourself.

    Father shoots daughter’s laptop after disrespectful Facebook post

    You'll have to ask someone with a rotten kid. My kid just got a scholarship for college. I never used draconian punishment with him. Maybe that's why he can think for himself?

    Father shoots daughter’s laptop after disrespectful Facebook post

    Destroying personal property and showing weapons are forms of intimidation. These are signs of a controlling, abusive man. The mere fact that the father is isolating the daughter by taking away a form of communication is disturbing. It must be nice to have so much privilege as to unware of...

    Father shoots daughter’s laptop after disrespectful Facebook post

    For your information, a man who destroys personal belonging is a high risk for domestic violence. It's one of the red flags that mental health experts recommend that women watch for. When a person destroys your personal property, there is an intrinsic threat that your body will be next.

    Hello everyone xXx

    Drop the "unruly" label, too. Little boys are full of adventurous energy. If you can't manage him, try some parenting classes to learn some new techniques (this has nothing to do with hearing). I recommend Parenting with Love and Logic.
