  • Boyfriend on drugs?

    my boyfriend of one year is 16, he moved to a really bad part of town a few months ago and has a really bad friend group. his dad has been doing drugs his whole life and now is getting my boyfriend into them as well. his dad is buying them every night and does them with my boyfriend. they try something different every night. first it was weed and alcohol and then ecstasy, molly, acid and shrooms. his dad does cocaine in front of him as well. my boyfriend doesn’t see anything wrong with doing the drugs for fun. but when he does them with his dad and all his friends he’s a total different person. his mom won’t take custody and he won’t leave his dad. he is now dealing drugs as well and has gotten hurt a few times and still won’t realize what he’s doing is wrong. if i try to get him away from that house and from his dad he gets mad. he was never like that before he moved to this town. now he’s never without his friends and never not high or on some kind of drugs. idk what to do because he won’t realize what he’s doing but it’s hurting him and our relationship and i’m scared. please give me suggestions.

  • Does homeschooling cause a lack of social skills?

    My 12 year old daughter is being physically bullied by a girl who comes from a very abusive family (now in foster care). The school suspended a few kids once, but they're not afraid to keep doing it. My daughter ignores all cruel comments, and tries to stay out of their way. I think she's pretty good at that - but at this point, they've done things that went too far. Schools can be filled with children with all sorts of behavioural issues. I'm deciding to start homeschooling my girl instead. However, I'm a bit concerned that she will lack peer interactions. There's always camping, sports, and activities though. She's made some close friends although they're usually younger or older than her. We decided it might be best for our child to homeschool for a few years to gain that experience, focus more on academics, and be in a safe environment.

  • If a child does not see his father, what is his last name?

    A child whose father is not known will often take the last name of the mother. But what if the father is known, yet only the mother takes care of the child? Whose last name will the child typically take?

  • Is this normal?

    I know there's a lot of fake questions like this on here, but I'm honestly scared and I don't know where else to ask. Ever since I turned 16, my dad constantly talks about my body and how beautiful I'm getting. He'll get offended or angry if i don't kiss or hug him goodbye or greet him. One time he put money in the back pocket of my jeans, which I found weird because he could've just handed it to me. He also talks about how "mature" my body is getting and how it's "developing beautifully". He acts the same way towards my older sister and we both find it creepy, but I feel like he does it more towards me. Is this normal?

  • How can I be sure my gran is dead?

    She's collapsed on the couch and there are empty beer bottles all around her, so she might just be drunk. I can't find a pulse, but then again, I can't find my own either.

  • Help with the death of my Nan?

    I don’t want to sound insensitive in any way and it’s difficult for me to say without feeling guilty, but for me, my nan died years ago. She developed a stroke and after years of recovering (while I was very young) she had another stroke on her other side of the body. After this she was paralysed, she couldn’t talk, walk, eat or even smile. She was dead on the outside. After getting over how sad it was and accepting the fact that she would likely die after a few weeks (which we were told) everything went back to normal. We’re now at a point (5 years after she became paralysed) that we have discovered she will likely die. I know for my dad it is very very hard, she has seen him everyday since she became ill and she is one of the most important women in his life. I know for me, if she were to die, I wouldn’t be upset, and it wouldn’t affect me too much (which sounds awful) and I know my dad will notice this and I don’t want him to think I don’t care, I just don’t know what to say. If she does die, I really have no idea what to say/do to help my dad, I’m so young and have no experience in death, for me, this whole thing is scary and I don’t know what to do for him, now and (if she does pass) what to do after...

Mangle dolls, hurt our dog. So why should I support my son when I feel he's a monster?
