  • Can siblings share clothes?

    When I was younger (like 5-11) my parents would try to save money in all kinds of ways. I main one was the water bill. My family only did Landry once a month. Once you were out of clean clothes you would have to share/borrow from my other siblings. I had two sisters and I was the middle child. You can imagine how this would turn out. Some months I would only have to wear there underwear. Sometimes I would be wearing leggings and a flower shirt. It was only for a day or two but it still sucked.

  • Do you think my teacher should have let me off because of the exceptional circumstancies ?

    Best answer: What a silly question.  Of COURSE your teacher shouldn't have "let you off" and there were no "exceptional circumstances". You were warned 3 times to behave in class and you knew what the consequences were going to be if you didn't, but you chose not to heed the warnings.

  • How much allowance is appropriate for an 8th grade boy, and what should he be expected to buy from it rather than what his parents provide?

    Best answer: Whatever that boy's parents have deemed appropriate for his weekly allowance.  It will vary wildly depending on where you live and what you expect it to be used for.  Some require their kids to practice the rule of thirds (third to spend, third to save, third to donate), some don't.  It's not something that you should let other parents decide.  If you're the parent, you should know what's appropriate for your own child.

  • Do parents love their kids less as they get older?

    when we were kids, parents love us unconditionally. As teens, we had to start doing chores if we wanted an allowance. As kids, it was given to us automatically. II seems parents love us more as kids and less as we get older. Also, parents tell us they love us every day when we are kids, as teens it was rare, my brother who is an adult, never gets told he is loved by our parents. where do parents love go when we age?

  • What do think of same-sex couples in high school who wear matching outfits? And hold hands? Is that okay?

    Best answer: I think wearing matching outfits is cheesy, regardless of sexual orientation.  As for holding hands, depends on school rules.  If they allow it for heterosexual couples, damn straight they need to allow it for same sex as well.

  • If an alcoholic constantly yells at her son due to his horrible grades in school, and he grows up yelling at her, is it her fault?

    Let’s say his father walked out on her before her son was born. So for his entire adult life, she worked single-handedly to provide a roof over his head. But due to stress from her job and no male companionship to help raise her son (as well as lack of “needs,” if you know what I mean), she drank. Please don’t get it twisted, because she was NOT the cliché drunk on TV and movies who stayed out all night in bars and neglected her son. On the contrary, she was not only 100% in his life, but spoiled him rotten (as he’s her only child, and she made a great living).  But she habitually bought bottles of wine on the way home, causing her son’s incompetence in school to easily trigger her temper. This was especially evident when she helped him with his math homework, as she would yell when we couldn’t solve the problem. In addition, she generally yelled at him at the top of her lungs when he brought home a bad report card, to the point where the neighbors could hear, “WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” This would cause him to break down in tears, to the point where he feared coming home to yelling whenever he got bad grades, the same way kids feared getting “the belt” — words hurt just as much as hitting.  Although, according to the mother and son’s family, he’s a disrespectful spoiled brat, because she only tells them HIS faults: she yells at him, but never told them about her intoxication and yelling at him. Is it fair that he’s viewed as worse than Hitler, so to speak?

  • Will I grow taller ?

    I am 16 and almost 5'4. I started puberty at the age of 12. I didn't receive any major growth spurt between 12-15. I grew normally like other kids of my age, who did'nt begin puberty at that time . But after my 15th birthday my growth slowed to such an extent that I have hardly grown 2 inches since then.  I have a little amount of facial hair and lots of pubic hair . Also, I can see fine hair on my stomach. My father is also 5'4 and my mother is 4'8. Does it means that I will end up being short , I want to state that my father was malnourished during his teenage years and the same happened his father and siblings. Is there any chance that I will grow taller if I start taking care of my diet and physical activity? I really want to grow taller as everyone in my locality, from 8-17 years age group is suppressing my height.

  • Kinda weird?

    About a month ago I was in a mood to do something weird and stupid so I went to a super market and for some stupid reason I thought I should buy some nappies (keep in mind i was on a sugar high 😂) and I bought them home (without my parents knowing I'm only a young teenager) and since that day onwards I've worn them to bed each night And I usually end up waking up in the morning and  the nappy is full, a few days ago I ran out of nappies and haven't used any since but the last couple of nights I have woke up and I have wet my bed- I have never previously had a problem with bed wetting so I don't know why this is happening? I know this is weird and stupid but idk If any of yous have any advice that would be great thanks
