[ - ] my mom told dd8 the story how as I five year old I saw a ghost. The house we lived in was known to be haunted, by the grandfatehr of the current owner. He normally only appeared in a downstairs room but apparently I told my mom I saw an old man outside my window and described the grandfather. My dd came home and asked me if the story was true and i said yes, i recall it. Now she refuses to sleep alone as she's scared of ghosts. Should I tell her now that I lied, it isn't true. That ghosts don't exist and I probably just imagined it as a five year old (but I do believe in afterlife and ghosts etc so this would be lying). Not sure what to do. 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Business idea - the "Lycée Allemande" - a French-speaking school in NYC which implements the GERMAN curriculum, but in French. So you combine a rigorous, no-nonsense Germanic school program with the glory of the French language, the world's most poetic. There will also German language lessons on offer, but they will be taught by French teachers of German from France. 19 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Their country went from being around 0.5% Muslim in the early 1960's (mainly Algerians from French Algeria) to 8-10% today. That's a massive, massive shift, and it could not have happened in a country that was truly chauvinistic about its own culture. Who do you think it closer, culturally, to the French - an average German person, or a devout Muslim woman from a country like Senegal who wears a partial face veil and has had female circumcision performed on her?

Women stand by and watch their kids -boys and girls- get molested all the time by their husbands/boyfriends.

It's very hard to acknowledge that the man you married or love would abuse your children or other children. Very deep denial going on there. My mother didn't believe the accusations that my father abused my 14 year old cousin. So I had no idea that when he came after 12 year old me, that this was a habit of his because she never warned me or kept an eye out for something like that going on in our house. (I learned much later when I finally told other adult relatives what was happening to me.) [ Reply | More ]

So strange this topic came up. I was listening to an old Wilson Phillips mp3 the other night (shut up, I love their voices) and there is a song on the second album where a song written by Chynna Phillips alludes to being molested as a child. It made me wonder if her father did anything to her. (Her father, John Phillips, had sex with his older daughter MacKenzie on a regular basis, and when MacKenzie talked about that on Oprah, Chynna checked herself into a hospital for psych treatment.) I always wondered if he molested her, or just the news that her father molested her half sister for so long triggered memories of her molestation by whomever and led her to treatment.

This school is partially supported by the French gov't -- so different from independent NYC private schools. It was rejecting lots of French families in NYC, not on qualifications, but instead because of fame factor and money. All things being equal, there are mandated to take French citizens but they were deliberately closing the door on them. It's really the only K-12 for Francophone families in NYC so it was a big deal and it got ugly -- justifiably so. [ Reply | More ]

Guess TLC checked out the TMZ rumors from yesterday that HBB's mom June was dating a recently released from jail child molester (who molested one of her 8 year old relatives 10 years ago), found out they were true, and decided to get the hell out of Dodge. 31 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Sources tell TMZ ... Anna Cardwell -- who is now 20 and married with a child -- believed her mom earlier today that she was not dating the man who molested her. But we're told Anna has now received a lot more info, and is now convinced June betrayed her by seeing McDaniel again. Anna -- known on the show as Chickadee -- wants it known she's the victim because it makes what her mom is doing all the more egregious. We're told Anna feels her relationship with her mom has been destroyed, and the only way June can see her granddaughter is if McDaniel is nowhere to be seen.
