[ - ] Two out of three of my kids have no self-esteem. None. They are wonderful but think they are stupid and worthless. No divorce, no abuse, loving, caring, nurturing home life. To them, every day is awful, filled with worry and regret. They act out because of it and then get scolded and it's back to "I'm terrible and the worst kid on the planet." Were any of you like that as a kid? Was there anything that helped turn it around? Therapy has done nothing. 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Every day, at some point throughout the day, usually dinner, I ask “what’s the best thing that happened to you today?” Or sometimes, if they’re being extra negative, I say “can you think of one thing you feel grateful for?” They roll their eyes but eventually do mention something. Always have one or two stories to tell at dinner.. not sure if that’s it, but they’re pretty happy/positive kids and I’d like to think these little promptings contribute.. hope this helps!

Thanks but we're way past that. It's actually what prompted the post. My daughter had a great day but said she had a bad day. I asked what was bad about it. She mentioned one barely inconvenient thing. I said, "That was disappointing. What was good about today?" "Nothing." What about X? "Oh, yeah, that was the only good thing." What about Y? Oh, yeah, those were the only good things. Etc., Etc. This happens daily. [ Reply | More ]

NP We sit down at dinner and we go around the table. Everyone must say something good that happened at school today. Dh and I read something years ago about how this cuts down on bullying. The kids need to come up with one thing, no matter what. Some days my kids try to push it and say "I survived." and then we call them on it and they say something like, "I had pizza at lunch." and we move on. It isn't a one and done thing. It is a nightly ritual at dinner and they have to do it. And dh and I have to do it. Some days it is hard! But you have to make it a habit to see the effect. GL [ Reply | More ]

"I'm terrible at soccer." "No, you just haven't mastered it yet. There is a difference. Do you think 'insert soccer player here' could play soccer like that when he was 2 yrs old? No! He kept playing it all the time. You are comparing yourself to kids who have been playing it for a lot time, which isn't fair to anyone. What do you think they have done to be able to play so well now? They played A LOT for a long time!" (Key is to not use fixed language like good/bad.) Then I would launch in to - remember when you first tried ice skating! You fell so much! And then you kept doing it and now you can skate really fast and not fall! You persisted and got better!" This kind of thing. Remind them of when they tried and failed and tried and tried and succeeded. [ Reply | More ]

I am a huge believer in two things in this type of situation with this much anger bouncing around: 1) individual therapy, preferably with someone who specializes in anger, and 2) finding a way to make at least one meaningful change to your circumstances.

I am also a fan of scheduling a time (and arranging child care) so you can calmly discuss issues on a Saturday morning. Preferably a sunny one. With the focus on goals. What are your goals here?

Separate your finances if you haven't already, and get your own place within walking distance. Don't tell him. Don't ask him. Don't wait for him to be okay with it.

You may be picking up on low-level hostility from all sorts of people. Those people are any combination of tired, overworked, envious, fearful, disappointed, resentful, insecure, angry, the list goes on. The greatest joy is found in human interactions and active hobbies (whether physical sports or just actually reading a book or knitting) and we've done a terrible job at promoting those things in the past 20 years. And competitiveness was already through the roof before the Kardashians came along with their closets full of 1,000 pairs of shoes. Long story short: it's not you, it's them. If you are reasonably nice and reasonably cool, people should like you well enough. If they don't they're missing out. So many people I know are literally missing out on so much that life has to offer. It's a shame. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Has anyone here done the keto or extremely low-carb diet? I have been doing it for 2 weeks and yesterday I noticed a terrible body odor- nothing like I've ever smelled, and had it again today. So embarrassing! Have you experienced this? When does it go away? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'm thin. I went from eating disorder to disordered eating. After I had my kids I couldn't lose the last of the weight, dieting etc etc. Finally I was just like fuck it, I'm going to eat what I want and stop worrying. I never binge anymore and eat less bc I don't feel like I HAVE to eat it bc it's all in going to get for the day or the LAST time I'll eat pasta. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] What's up with the Barneys "sale"? I just want to understand why they'd be only discounting 5-10% when all other department stores have started their sales with a lot of merch at 40%. What's the logic? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Was in there today and barely saw a salesperson the entire time. Agree that 10% off is nothing, especially since I assume it's all final sale. Maybe for an expensive handbag or something that never goes on sale? [ Reply | More ]
