    Why I am going through a tough/emotional situation

    Hi there, I don't chat much here, but this post caught my eye and I hope you don't mind my input. I had a very similar thing happen to me when my daughter was 13. My ex lived in another province, and my daughter went to visit him. It was during the school year and the two weeks she...

    Was I a little harsh?

    I don't think you've been harsh at all. The best thing we can teach our children is that there are consequences for their actions. At 15, he should be able to rise to an alarm clock and recognize he has obligations to get up and get to school. My daughter, who is now 21, also slept in...

    Different between real and fake friend/dating online

    It could be that this person's self esteem is so low that she feels a true picture of herself isn't adeaquate? Regardless of the reason..its dishonest and sneaky, especially if you're having personal conversations with her and exposing true facts about yourself. If it was me..i'd run.... fast...

    A sticky situation?

    Tough one, but it seems strange to me that this has arisen now.. about the wedding guest list. If the husband-to- be knew that your friend was still on close terms with her ex, this shouldn't be a surprise to him. I'm surprised that he didn't raise his concerns prior to a wedding guest...

    Respect: What does it exactly mean to you?

    While I understand the reasoning behind this, I'm not sure I agree with it. I tend to think respect is given, unless it is "Lost" I try to treat everyone with respect, it's part of being in a civilized community. Having said that, it CAN be lost... if someone lies to me, I lose respect for...

    I am confused and guilt with my old Cat :( :(

    I'm so sorry to hear about your cat. Its such a difficult situation for those of us who have fur-babies that we love. i truly believe that you will know when its time to let her go and cross the bridge. As was mentioned, I strongly suggest a vet check, if it hasn't already been done. My...

    Should children be allowed to drink alcohol at home?

    When my daughter was under 16, we had a strict no drinking, no alcohol rule. Coming from an Italian family wine and beer flowed freely at family events and many of her cousins were permitted to sample and drink alcohol at an earlier age. When she turned 16, she was allowed a glass of wine at...
