[ - ] DS (11) went to an academic camp. We met with the instructor, for a full hour, he said DS was great. DS never had a behavioral issue his entire life. He is a smart, respectful boy. He is stubborn; he does want to get his way. Anyway, in writing, twice, the instructor wrote: "your behavior disrupted class activities and compromised the learning environment". WTF? I hate when professors are so wimpy that they won't mention it to my face, but feel like they can sneak it into a written eval. I showed it to DS and he is completely hysterically crying; saying there was another kid that was the problem, not him. What should I do if anything? 36 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

He's her stepfather. I know he loves her, but sometimes I wonder if he tries too hard to be her friend. (He lets her swear around him and make inappropriate jokes, watch inappropriate videos. I have to arrange child care if I have to be out of town, because he'll just drop her off at houses without asking whose house, what adult will be there, what they'll be doing. If a friend who's a boy stops by and she says they're walking to another friend's house, he just says okay and have fun without finding out what friend, making sure the friend's a girl, making sure parents will be there, getting confirmation she actually went where she said she was going to, etc.) He disagrees she looks like a hooker. He says she looks like every other kid at her school. All the friends she has that are girls do seem to wear similar outfits. [ Reply | More ]

IME, if she is over 13, she is not doing it to get a reaction from her mother, if only. She is not likely to get bored with it, alas, because it's not about you. I don't let my kid (a very physically mature 13) show abdomen or cleavage. And her shorts can't be near her butt cheek. It's pretty simple, and even she knows it's not unreasonable. [ Reply | More ]

She is very narrow hipped and flat chested, so she tried to claim she has no cleavage, has no butt cheeks. I still didn't agree to her wearing it out, but it wasn't a productive conversation and it definitely resulted in no change to what she will choose to wear in the future. [ Reply | More ]

I think she'll always like this style. She was in elementary school when she first saw this picture of Katy Perry wearing a sunflower patterned crop top with matching high waisted shorts, and she told me that was her style. It's changed a bit. Like she got into the fishnet stocking under ripped jeans look after Kylie Jenner did it. She's been featured in her school newspaper for being on trend, so she gets a lot of positive reinforcement for these clothes outside of any negative reinforcement she gets from me. [ Reply | More ]

Np: I am the poster whose douchebag exDH called a divorce lawyer during a 5-hour period one morning when our babysitter cancelled and I had to go to work, leaving him to watch out 3 young DC for the *only* time he ever had to care for them alone—they were a 2 yo and 6 mo old twins. (He is a solo practice estate planning lawyer, and had planned to sleep in then work from home that day. The nanny service got a new sitter to our house to help him by early afternoon.) This CO murderer watched their 3 and 4 yo a couple of days while the wife was in a business trip, and had a delayed flight so she didn’t get home until 2 am. So my question is—-did he kill his kids first while she was out of town, then finish the job when his wife got home after he came unglued watching his own kids for a few days, or did he kill her in rage when she got home because he was so frazzled and enraged by being directly responsible for his own kids for a few days, then next murder the kids too for completeness’s sake? My exDH turned out to have 19 secret maxed out credit cards. Thank God our Judge gave him all of it instead of making me 50% responsible for his financial mess. I’d guess their financial problems are this murder’s doing as well—-overspending goes along with the poor impulse control that it takes to strangle your family ina rage, and the bloodless selfishness it takes to pretend to be a grieving family man on TV for the 24 hours it took to bust him. His poor wife—there but for the grace of God go I. [ Reply | More ]

I would never have believed this to be possible until I lived it. Then the patterns emerge in one horrible news story after another. It’s definitely out there, and a tidy answer like “mental illness” won’t keep us safe. Abusive men occur along a spectrum in “well” men, not a clearly separate issue which is incompatible with functioning when untreated the way schizophrenia is “mental illness”. These guys “function” undiagnosed. Sometimes these men kill their families. Many times these men just abuse them. [ Reply | More ]

Well, the last I saw of it, it was phrased as if the mom were the one traveling and the dad & nanny were home w/3 kids. Did it turn out that it was the dad on the road/overseas? [ Reply | More ]

Well, hypothetical (OP) -- if that's what she was doing (she was accused of it) she was trying (I guess) to show the difference between a father being given a pass for not coming home and a mother slammed for not dropping everything for a medical emergency. So if anyone has the link I would still like to read it just because I guess I like torture. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I was looking for some estimates to build an addition to my house and I got ridiculous prices. The portion where I would put the addition is now empty. And there isn’t much to be done - I don’t need a kitchen and only 1 bathroom. When I look on Zillow, in lesser neighborhoods, there are brand new houses, plus lot, and the cost more (they’re more than twice the size of my planned addition). It’s insane, I guess I spoke to the wrong architects. 17 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The house with land is much cheaper than my addition on existing land. Why does school district matter for building costs? Permits are cheap in my city. [ Reply | More ]

I did that - the guy said my house (which is very nice and underwent a full renovation 3 years ago) is a tear down and only he can build me a nice house. Hahaha! Then he told me about his 3 children and their college expenses. I need to find someone else. [ Reply | More ]

Depends on the airline. When all else fails, wear all your clothes at the same time. BTDT with 3 shirts, 2 sweaters and a coat. Got to do what you've got to do when confronted by the luggage police. ;) [ Reply | More ]

Five inches is a lot, but my regulation size carry-on has two exterior pockets. I usually use them for flat things like ID or a magazine, but if I were to stuff them with clothing the bag would be wider than regulations allow. [ Reply | More ]

She had a great voice, though, no chance to develop it further unfortunately. No one's really had a voice quite like hers in the last 50 years. No one's been Michael Jackson, either. She had her own thing, there's no need to be "best" or "greatest." Some people still think Stevie Nicks can barely sing. [ Reply | More ]

Stevie Nicks = nails on a chalkboard to me. I think by "greatest female singer," most people want power, range, and clarity. Someone who can belt out a long note and give you goosebumps. Like Aretha, or, today, Adele. [ Reply | More ]

The voice is the medium, not the message. If an artist can convey a powerful message in paper as opposed to oil, it doesn't make him a lessor artist. You may love the voice, but there are other elements to consider. [ Reply | More ]

Okay, but I think OP meant strong, powerful voices that can hit and sustain notes; technical prowess. So that is why Aretha was the Queen and the others mentioned definitely emulated her style (Adele does, as well) by physically developing their voices and speech mechanisms to be able to produce that range, etc. This isn't about personal preference but about technical skill.

That's also what put her voice in a time capsule and didn't give her a chance to try to "evolve" like Grace Slick went from Airplane to Starship. Only a few artists ever prove to keep up with the times over the long haul. Even Madonna is 60 now. [ Reply | More ]
