I'm getting kinda tired of ds/17 and a half, depression because of his break up with his 1st girlfriend a while back. I understand it's hard. I feel helpless. He's going to see a therapist on the 26th. Have any of you ever put your teen on antidepressants? He can't seem to shake this depression.

I know this is mean and most of you may trash me for it but I’m gonna confess. A friend of mine put up a photo of her son (about 8) with no shirt on. The family is big and have very bad eating habits. I know he doesn’t have a genetic problem, but also he could grow out of it so you don’t have to tell me that. But not only is he obese, he has breasts that look like a woman’s. I was shocked to see it. Now I’m sure someone will tell me it could be something else - but knowing the family it’s not. The men die young after topping it well over 300 pounds. I felt bad for the kid.

In response to a confession. I'm sorry, but this seems like such a non- issue. Nobody was injured physically or otherwise. It's sand. It washes out. Kids are going to do things they shouldn't when playing with other kids. I feel like an apology from one to the other should have been sufficient. It's utterly ridiculous that either of you got your panties in a wad about 1) sand in hair, and 2) that someone wanted your ds to behave. Smh. Kids learn from experience 100% of the time. Let them learn.

In response to a confession. Where is the red flag here? And who cares if you don't think the mom was "nice" enough to him? She didn't yell at him, according to you, so wtf did you want her to do? I'm sure if some kid dared to throw sand in your snowflake's hair you'd go ballistic. The only red flag here is your stifling, enabling parenting.

One of my good friends and her DH have a little girl who's going to be 3. Whenever they post pics of her on FB, people inevitably comment on how pretty/cute/princess-like she is. Her daddy, who's an engineer, always comments with something like "Doesn't she look so ready for calculus and thermodynamics? Look at how well she concentrates!" I love that about him as a dad. He really wants people to see his little girl for who she is and for her talents. My dad was much the same way and I have always felt like I can do absolutely anything a man can do.

In response to a confession. Of course your kid didn't have much to say to the other mom, he was the one who threw sand in another kid's hair! Guilty. You act like your kid is the victim here. I don't even understand what the issue is? You said the other other mom was nice when she spoke with him, what more do you want. I guess it's OK for your child to treat others however he wants with no consequences. You're lucky she was even nice to him after he threw sand at her kid. It could have gotten in her kid's eyes..seems like an entitled brat.

In response to a confession. It was her confrontational behavior towards me when I showed up that made me feel like she was overstepping. Him telling her “i don’t know” when he is the kind of kid who LOVES attention from everyone and would normally give way too many details about his entire day to anyone who will listen was also sort of a red flag for me. I asked him after if he thought she was nice to him when they talked before I showed up he said I don’t know, so I told him if someone’s parents ever made him uncomfortable to go find the teacher. I don’t mind other people talking to my kid, but I expect them to be nice to him, and I honestly don’t think that she was.

They should be teaching in High School how important it is to vote. The dynamics of demographics, current demographics as well as what they'll look like as the students become voters. These kids don't have any idea how important they are.

Millennials are more tolerant, less racist, less materialistic, and more community-minded as far as social justice, than any other generation I've had experience with. I'm very excited to see what they can do if they would just get involved. At least vote! That's their downfall, they feel so separated from Washington politics, and the 1% (which to them are pretty much one and the same) that they think nothing they do matters. They don't even bother to vote. They are the most screwed generation, and they know it. They think they can't change anything. They're wrong. They're the only ones who can. And I tell them that at every opportunity.

There is a lady I know who complains all the time about millennials and how lazy they are. She has a 10 year old son who she still bathes, dresses including putting on his underwear for him, ties his shoes, cleans his room and brings him dinner to his room so he doesn't have to stop playing video games. He has a room full of so many toys and electronics it looks like a small toy store. It is a massive room in the basement with everything thing imaginable and he never has to clean it after playing, she does the cleaning and organizing after he is done destroying the area. He doesn't do any chores and gets a $20 dollar weekly allowance just for existing. He does nothing but sleep and eat and go to school. She complains about millennials but doesn't see her actions are contributing a problem for the future version of her son. Can we say DENIAL!
