Children cannot inherit directly, money has to go into a trust. As each turns 18, you must adjust the will. Make sure your friend knows and have a back-up person. [ Reply | More ]

I have a son like yours op. First born boys are often very intense and oppositional. Its not a psychological problem, but it is VERY difficult to parent through. Things improved dramatically around 6.5 years old. Stay the course. Two things to suggest though. First, he should probably be in bed much earlier. My pediatrician figured out that our son was over tired despite not showing signs. She had us do an experiment to put him down 20 min earlier for 3 nights and if he still woke up the same time and could fall asleep promptly (within 15 min), do it again. We ended up moving bedtime from 7:30 to 6:30 by the time we were done. It made a HUGE difference. Its been an adjustment for our schedules, but really helped him. second, I would stop staying in his room till he falls asleep. Talk to him about a new routine, explain that this is how it will be (don't ask if its ok), prepare him that its since he's a big boy now he is ready to fall asleep on his own. Make it seem like a right of passage. I have learned with my DS its all about spin. The constant negotiations and the massive meltdowns are absolutely draining, I really understand. Take a deep breath, take care of yourself and make time for yourself. Make sure you and DH are allies and not undermining each other. It will get better. DS is still intense and oppositional, but it gets easier literally every day. 5 was a severe low point for us too. good luck! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Hi Guys, Sorry I do not use the right words I have not been here in many years. My DH and I went to the Pleasure Chest on the UES. My husband seemed to be very focused on this item. http://thepleasurechest.com/the-beau-with-supreme-harness-15785-prd1.htm talking about it rather then focusing on the toys that I thought he would pay attention to (for me) I'm not sure what to make of it. He didn't ask for it or anything just pointed it out and kept looking at it. I find it very strange. I wanted to know what you all think. do you think he just though it was weird? Should I buy it and surprise him (not my think but perhaps it will make him happy) Perhaps he was thinking of a women using it on me? I have to admit the thought that turns me on. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Mid 30s. He's always liked anal stimulation with a finger as do I. I think he found having a dildo up him to be not all that comfortable (hey, how do you think I feel when we do anal?) but we both were really turned on by the role reversal where he was the female and I was the male. We don't talk about it after it's over though. [ Reply | More ]

The lady is inclined to help AA families not other families of color, she pushes the families she likes or that have a relationship with her and her inner circle, doesn't even meet the kids to know what they are like or to advise the family about fit, doesn't like families that come from YSAAGNY schools, loves to accommodate families from Bronx and Harlem and schools tend to please her. At the end of the day, one is better off relying on PSD. [ Reply | More ]

We used her from a ISAAGNY school and we really liked her. I think we were one of her "liked" families but this was just due to us really following her rules and being nice and appreciative. If nothing else, the ES school fair (if they still have that) makes going through the whole process worth it. Amazing one on one time with directors. Such a better experience than the parents league one. Did you go to it? [ Reply | More ]

I'm guessing it alludes to the rumor that he has aspergers, as a couple recent school shooters were aspies. Also Barron is rumored to be home schooled (aspergers related) but officially he goes to CGPS. So she outed him for two things on social media plus joked about violence. [ Reply | More ]
