[ - ] I'm addicted to snooping on DH (checking his computer/phone etc.) and it makes me feel crazy. I need to stop, get more therapy, or leave. While dating I caught him emailing prostitutes, he sent one a picture of his friend and so I bought his story about doing it for fun. After marrying I once saw a pop up his laptop for a strip club in Montreal (he has been there for business by himself). Caught him calling and searching for handjob/masssage parlors two years ago and have been crazy vigilant ever since. Confronted him and have been to therapy together and even if he never does anything in the future I don't know how I'm ever going to kick this habit. I have the compulsion not to trust him and then I snoop, find nothing, and feel awful. For the record my Dad was totally untrustworthy and nuts so it probably didn't take much to send me over the edge. WWYD? 28 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

DH here. I suspect your husband feels the same way about divorcing you. My guess is that eventually, one of you will throw in the towel despite the effect on the kids. I'd suggest that you just let this go and not worry if he visits a strip club in Kalamazoo when he's there on business but the type of women who respond to posts like yours are always encouraging you to go the distance with snooping and divorce. Time to decide what's important for your life. [ Reply | More ]

op- in addition to knowing that he for sure paid for handjobs I also know he searched for city specific escorts while traveling, again with the claim that he was doing it for fun and while jerking off to the ads. He lied about the handjobs before I told him I had proof. I guess my issue is that there is a big difference between a strip club and hiring escorts, and I am terrified that I am living a lie and he has done things behind my back that aren't run of the mill bad male behavior. Perhaps it is because my Dad was such a liar and unfaithful guy that I can't let it go, but it terrifies me for some reason. [ Reply | More ]

Not pp, but I would say no. My advice would be tour 4-6 schools in your neighborhood, and stop the process when a school rubs you the wrong way. If you're planning on public K, there is absolutely no reason to pay 20K unless you are just crazy about the school (no judgement if you choose to.) Throughout the process, go with your gut. I still think about the wonderful teacher I observed at a humble but sweet school near Columbia, and wonder if I made the right choice. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I have a DH that is really giving, kind, loving man. HOWEVER, he has this very juvenile, some-what insultive way of communicating with people whom he is close with, (including me). He tends to pick on people in front of others I guess, and pretend it's all hilarious and in good fun. He will say things like, "make yourself useful" to me. Yesterday I had our close friends over and was talking about how spinach makes my teeth feel strange and out of nowhere he says, "well, you never had that nice of teeth to begin with." It's almost like a very juvenile idea of humor or something. I am regularly embarrassed of him. His friends have also called him out on this, not just me. I have told him repeatedly and he puts it back on me, like I am supposed to let him "be himself" and not criticize him. I don't even want to socialize with him. I should also point out that he loves to drink and his behavior increases the more he drinks. 30 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

He is not an angry guy or a jerk in private. When he gets around a crowd he starts performing almost and the way he does it is to make impulsive, ribbing, insult-as-a-joke type comments.

Humor that is always at someone else's expense isn't really humor. I think you need to tell him that you--and others--don't like always being the butt of his jokes. If he tells you that you or others are too sensitive, tell him that while that may be, you still don't like it. So you're asking him, out of respect for your feelings (and that of others), to dial it down. See what he does. [ Reply | More ]

This might be a good situation for marriage counseling, with the ultimate goal of having him get to the bottom of his passive-aggressive (bordering on hostile) style of humor. The fact that he wants to be in the limelight also seems telling. If nothing else, if you spoke to a counselor, it might give you some tools on how to either address it or how to move on if he is unwilling to see how destructive his behavior is. [ Reply | More ]

I disagree.

His close friends, whom have now broken up with him, say the exact same things. We all think he has deep insecurities that cause him to feel uncomfortable in crowds, so he gains power by this behavior. [ Reply | More ]

OP - There are other symptoms of his insecurity issues. I have dealt with many over the last 15 years. He is just a handful and I'm just at the end of my rope. If we didn't have kids I would leave. I'm just stuck in this situation of work with this person more (which makes me shudder) or destroy my home life with my kids. [ Reply | More ]

Well, what are you teaching your kids based on the example you're setting? That one should sacrifice self-respect and put up with emotional abuse? [ Reply | More ]

Go to the dermatologist. There are too many options, and improvements all of the time. Too hard to advise for an individual anonymously. [ Reply | More ]

Just go to a derm. They are doctors and take your insurance. She'll prescribe a good face wash and a topical cream. I never know why parents don't take spotty kids sooner. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Spin off. I can relate to some of the posts here. I feel like my house is a war-zone when it comes to food. 2 of my 3 kids are obsessed with food, especially greasy junk and desserts. I try to limit what I can, but it becomes a battle. I don't want to be too restricting because that always backfires, eg, one of my kids snuck an entire bag of M & Ms and puked everywhere. Does anyone else have this issue, and how do you handle it? 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

^^Here is another example. We went out to dinner recently, and one of my kids ordered a SECOND entree when no one was looking. [ Reply | More ]

no one was LOOKING?? why not? pay attention. it's not about being restrictive, but it sounds like you need to be more observant. [ Reply | More ]

yikes, what if you tried giving them some junk but letting them know binging/gorging on this kind of food is not good e.g. puking after the bag of m and ms [ Reply | More ]

don't control what they eat, control what is in your home. i think if your kid is hungry let them eat, but make them choose from what is available. don't completely eliminate treats and junk, just have a balance. and my child would be punished, i.e. time out or privilege revoked for ordering an entree when "no one is looking". you are adult, and the one in control, put your foot down [ Reply | More ]

My approach has always been to not have junk in the house (my kids are much younger though, so they can't get it themselves), and to let them regulate their own appetites from the healthy food on offer. We often have sweets after dinner with the attitude that it's nice to have a small, reasonable treat. They do enjoy junk food occasionally, but we don't have it in the house. [ Reply | More ]
