My sister is a terrible mom. There, I said it. And I meant it, too. I can't wait for those kids to be teenagers who are total nightmares. She isn't a parent; she tries to be their friend. You can't parent like that, sorry.

I've been having such a good time homeschooling the kids, and I thought the kids were happy too. But they've both come to me and said they want to try to go back to school next year. Not going to lie, it broke my heart a bit. But I won't be my mother and force them to stay home. If possible, I'll send them back and go get a between school hours job and all that. I'll miss this, though.

They're probably the same parents who let their 9 year old ride in the front seat. We know someone whose son was killed this way. If he would have been in the back seat, he would have survived. He should have technically been in a booster seat too since he was under 4'9" tall. His parents were the "What's the big deal?" types.

Why don't parents make their kids wear bike helmets? There are two kids ages 4/5 and maybe 7ish who are happily tooling around my cul-de-sac, racing each other down the street, etc. with no helmets. They live around the corner. I have never once seen them wear a helmet. Just, why? Are you lazy? Just don't care? I'm glad they are out being active and riding bikes. I'm glad you're allowing them that freedom, but seriously, why don't you care enough for them to wear helmets? I'm in a pretty upper middle-class development, so these folks can afford it. I just seriously don't understand why people don't even bother to do the bare minimum to keep their kids safer.

My ds11 just got invited to his first sleepover. It's not till the end of next month, but I'm pretty much going to have to say no and that hurts. I hate to hurt his feelings and the kid that invited him, but I don't know the adults and there's a pandemic (which we've so far avoided, fingers crossed). But with homeschooling him, I'm equally afraid he won't get another invite. I'm so conflicted. I know it doesn't make or break his life, but... this year has sucked so hard and to start next year off the same just seems to be so unfair.

I am afraid to be around my tween nieces. Only because I still haven't fully recovered from an eating disorder and I am actually smaller than they are. I am not healthy at the weight I'm at now and I don't want to cause them any worries about their bodies. I had a bulimic aunt when I was that age and my grandma always compared us and I know it helped me develop my own eating disorder. I'm using this as the main reason I need to recover because this is making me so horribly sad.

In response to a confession. I'm the OP of the Xbox confession, and I wish something like that would happen to my son. I was always the odd kid out, and am still the odd adult out. I was homeschooled and an outcast growing up, so my mom sent me to school in 7th grade where I was assaulted by a boy and he dislocated my jaw. The school didn't punish him because he "had a rough home life". I still have mental and physical issues from that year. I went back to homeschooling after that. I never ever thought one of my kids would be a bully and haven't the slightest idea how to get it across to him that that type of behavior is unacceptable. I honestly feel like he would benefit from being publicly called out.

In response to a confession. My son was horrible to another boy in middle school, and they had been friends a long time. Well, said kid and his parents showed up at my house and the parents asked if they could talk to DS. It was the most thorough shaming I've ever seen in my life. I had no clue this was going on at school, so I just watched and listened. I swear, DS was physically shrinking during this talking-to. And he deserved it. He admitted to being cruel and hurtful, admitted that the kid had been a good friend to him since he moved here, apologized and shook the kid's hand in the end. Even today, he'll tell you it was one of the most important lessons he ever learned. He's grown now with a family of his own.

I hope you took that xBox away for a while.

I just overheard my ds10 and his friend on Xbox, they kicked off another friend because they don't like him. They just said "hey, we don't like you stop coming in our party." This kid is lonely and just wants friends, and I'm so embarrassed and hurt that my son would be like that. I thought I had taught him better than that.
