[ - ] Different perspective on a father spending time with dc's. My 16 yo ds went through a really rough patch about two years ago, got better, but is getting out of control again. Lying, drug use, sneaking out of the house in the middle of the night. My ex has moved on with new gf and their dc and spends NO time with ds. I told him I would petition the court for him to take physical custody if he didn't get involved bc I could not do it alone anymore. I'm sure you are hurt but be so, so thankful. Nothing like the pain of watching your dc self destruct and the other parent could give a shit. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I have heard and seen several versions of this: involved, seemingly perfect, not divorced parents and a kid that self destructs. Involved, seemings perfect, divorced parents and a kid self destructs. The versions of this tale go on, and on. UBers post about cutting their parents off or very little contact. Sometimes a single parent is better than a second parent that doesn't co-parent AND models bad behaviour. Like Dad was never home when the 16 year old was. Or, the 16 year old spent all his time out with friends, and Dad was, well what we read about often on UB, Disney Dad. There's another post about 15 year olds drinking alcohol with their parents. Seen this with pot, and other substances, too. All kinds of ways shared custody with Dad may not have improved this anecdotal story. [ Reply | More ]

People say things they don't mean. It's of course worse to say those things to kids, but you are probably overreacting to the impact this has. If you apologize and mean it, and say that sometimes when you get stressed you say the thing that will hurt the most (not the thing you mean the most), they'll get it. Parenting gives us so many opportunities to apologize. Some people never question their authority or their decisions. Good you are! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I posted about this before but im still upset. My kids are scouts. My dh loves scouting. Im not involved i find it all to be tedious/not fun, but i keep that to myself, im supportive in that im sure they are good to go to meetings, work on merrit badges with them etc..but they go away for the entire weekend 3x in the fall 1 week in the summer, 2 weekends in the spring. They are teens so this means that the other weekends they are playing catch up with their other commitments ( dh too). So we do very little as a family..occassional board games. I spent the weekend working on the house and seeing friends. But I love being with my family and even if i tried to get involved with scouting, that would mean leaving my 17 year old home alone for these weekends. But more importantly these scout weekends are annoying. Adults milling about, endlessly telling scouts what to do. So much details related to rank, merrit badge execution, so formal. I love camping and nature,but so we can relax and get some exercise, not get wrapped up in more demands. I just miss my family, and i kniw they are growing up and leaving,but at that point my whole life will be different. For now im still tied to the demands of caring for them, but not getting to enjoy them. No question just a pity party here 46 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You're the parent. You make the decisions. If they depend on you for things, then you get to decide how their time is spent. If you don't schedule family time and then make them stick to it, you don't get family time.

Kids make choices. That's kind of life. My son rowed starting in high school, and basically, from there on, every single weekend was a regatta, summer was rowing, fall was rowing. He was recruited in college for rowing. My sister used to go on and on about how it sucked that I never could plan weekend outings because he was always rowing, but I always countered that it was great he found something he loved. The truth is, your kids love scouting. That's great. I get it that you're not involved in the camp outs. But this is something that will be a big memory for them. It's a chance for them to be with other kids. Family time is great, but you actually have a ton of it even missing 8 weekends a year. Make the most of those weekends and be glad your kids are really enjoying themselves with their dad. [ Reply | More ]

Pretty much yes - preheat your broiler; put salmon skin side down on tin foil on pan; dribble soy sauce over salmon. Broil for 7-8 minutes then check it.

Everyone in my family loves it! With broiling you need to get used to your oven. I never cooked mine more than 10 minutes.

I'd have to put in in the built in book shelves on one of the sides of the fire place. It wouldn't fit properly into the shelves as is so I'd either have to have them modified (it's a brand new home so seems wasteful and messy) or just place in front of the shelves. I think if I style the shelves accordingly it will look ok. I hate the angle and it being the focal point of a room when it's over the fireplace. [ Reply | More ]

I would go ahead and get the shelves fixed and holes cut for the wiring now. Otherwise you will be annoyed for the rest of the time you have the house. [ Reply | More ]

weirdly yes when I was in college - my ex boyfriend. Even though we had broken up and I was 19 I took him to the hospital and got him admitted. I called his mom in australia (who side note was not really appreciative) and then visited him every day until she showed up. The takeaway being if he is threatening suicide - I would take him into urgent care and get him admitted. He needs some attention and to work on this. [ Reply | More ]

It isn't crazy, because you have been through a trauma. The thing is, he doesn't know that (right?). So to him this is normal dirty talk that might be totally fine in another situation. If its 4 months, it might be ok to talk to him about your situation (you dont have to tell him anything, but just say you were in a bad situation and certain types of talk don't work for you).

While crass and in poor taste, I don’t find it disrespectful. If you gave him a blow job, he’s just looking forward to another one, likes you in some capacity and is being a dumb dude. If he seems like a good guy and not dumb, you can probably successfully dissuade his speaking this way in the future. Do you like him? [ Reply | More ]
