I'm heartbroken. My DD 19 is going back to her ex that beats on her. I've never been with a man that hits me. I don't understand why she thinks this is a good idea. I keep telling her love is not wanting to see the person you love bleeding and bruised. I don't understand this. I'm scared for her. Everyone we know wants to hurt him, she is in love wtf? She was 100% free. She was going to look into college now she's going to throw it away for a guy that controls everything. I don't get it. :(

What do you do when your 11yo kid does not care at ALL about doing the right thing? The lying, manipulating, gluttony, blatant disrespect and lack of morals is just completely shocking to me. I have been a very hands on parent, always involved in every aspect. But I've always tried to give him respect and space to work things out on his own as much as I can. I've done the best I can, and I have no idea if this type of behavior is normal? I get life is different right now, but when you have everything and then some... the only really different thing is not going places.

My sister is having to check over my niece's homework until school's back in. They get assignments where they have to write a paragraph (5th grade) and my sister is horrified to see how my niece writes--it's all texting abbreviations. I bet this is so common these days and I feel bad for all the teachers having to get them to write actual words.

It's been 6 months since you've seen your grandkids. Even before this pandemic, you weren't exactly coming for visits. You post pictures about how much you miss your grandkids but can go off with whatever new guy you are dating. I invite you over for my birthday so you aren't excluded and I want you to spend time with my kids. You asked me if your bf could come. Um. No? We barely see you, I don't need to have you there trying to play happy family with some guy who will be gone by this year when you ought to be with the kids. The dinner isn't a way to introduce me to this guy, I don't want to meet another. I want you to be with the kids, laugh with me and spend time with us. Now I'm the bad guy because I said no. Ok. You can come or not, it's your choice. I hope I could see you but I don't think it's healthy for my kids for you introduce your new BF as "Grandpa" like the last time.

Every day, I swear I catch myself more and more turning into my dad. Its infuriating because I feel like all the negative traits he has are the ones that I somehow managed to get. Why couldn't I have had parents with better personality traits? I know this is a stupid thing to bitch about but that's why I'm doing it here and not unloading it onto anyone in my real life.

OP with the 3yo DGD and 25yo DS who was being lazy with her potty training. Well, he's back working again finally and DIL is staying home with DGD. They just absolutely do not want her in daycare. (Are daycares even open??) DS is much happier now that he's working and DIL is much happier now that she can be home with the little one. I know DIL will be more diligent with the potty training, too. They are both struggling with her toddler tantrums though. I don't get it. I've seen her have meltdowns (and they're BAD sometimes), but they're so infrequent when she's visiting. She just seems to behave better for me than she does for her parents. I don't remember if my kids were like this. Any parents of toddlers or grandparents of toddlers want to weigh in? Is this normal?

I am going to my niece's b-day party tomorrow. My sister is inviting a ton of people and she's having it outside so we can sit far apart. It's going to be 95F tomorrow and no one wants to sit out in the hot sun and have a party. I feel so bad for my niece though because she is depressed about her birthday not being "fun" for people. Poor kid. I hope she likes the gift I got her--a "real" manicure at a salon where we're going to get fancy nail art.

We finally decided to homeschool this year. Our state cannot get a handle on COVID, will not implement any type of restrictions that might slow the spread, and basically told our state's parents to plan on our kids getting COVID and that schools will probably close midyear. My DH thinks I'm scared, but I'm actually kind of excited about it.

In response to a confession. If your DD is 18, a legal adult, how could you "make" her go to his funeral? And why would you want to? He sounds like a horrible parent, I wouldn't go either if that was my dad.

My dd just turned 18 in june and my ds19 in april.Their dad was just diagnosed with liver Cirrhosis. He blews the kids off. He drives by our home 2-3 times daily we live a mile apart. He never stops to talk to the kids. So he text our DD saying when he dies he's only leaving his youngest kids his house and 401k. Our ds is in basic training and he said ds will fail, was calling all of us names. She snapped. She told him he's a horrible parent, she doesn't feel bad he's sick. She told him you weren't here by choice, your karma came back to you. He's playing the I brained washed the kids card. I never kept him away, I never said a bad word in front of them, all holidays were with his family. His parents picked them up whenever they wanted. He's being a asshole because our ds called me. She said the insults are enough. She told me she's not going to his funeral. I'll make her. I just wish he would have been a better dad. He's missing out on 2 great kids. I don't get it.
