My favorite movie growing up was Poltergeist. It didn't scare me at all. However, the trash heap from Fraggle Rock scared the shit out of me. Pretty much anything from Jim Henson scared me. Except Emmett Otter. The actual puppet, not the movie. The movie gave me nightmares, lol. That snake in the Riverbottom Nightmare Band was awful! I think if I knew it was supposed to be scary, like Poltergeist, I wasn't scared. But don't look me in the eye and tell me I'm not supposed to be afraid of a talking garbage heap!

Kids chores - should be washing their own clothes as soon as can reach controls on washing machine and dryer. Mine were doing it at 8 and 10. Should be getting their own snacks about the time they go to school. Have snack shelf within their reach and tell them that's what they can eat and when, like no snack within an hour of dinner and no eating in the living room or their rooms, etc. As soon as they can they should carry their plates to the sink, when they can reach the faucet they should wash it off. They can help dust very early. They can vacuum and keep their rooms clean. And make their beds by school age. Everyone who lives in a home has a responsibility to make it nice. Parents and children become proud of the kids' accomplishments. Parents are not so overworked. Easy. And it's fun to all work together.

Hi Flutterby yes it was Paparazzi jewelry. I'm not slamming the company but I was very disapointed. Money is very tight for me so I was exieted to buy some cute things only to have them break on me. They were all necklaces as that is pretty much the only thing I wear for jewelry.

Anyone have friends get into Stream where they try to get you to change your electric companies? It's big around my area right now. Seems weird to me. I've said to no to everyone who asks me about it.

I got stuff from Paparazzi too and it broke. Two necklaces and one bracelet. The earrings seem to last though.

In response to a confession. Are you talking about Paparazzi Jewelry? I'm a consultant in Michigan. I've had a few items that have had quality control issues,but the vast majority has been quite sturdy. What types of items have fallen apart? I'd like to know so I can keep an eye out for problems with my own stock.

My parents were always super strict about movies and music. They wouldn't let us watch R rated movies unless they had previewed it in advance. However...that didn't stop my sister from getting nightmares from Wizard of Oz. Some kids are way more sensitive to violence and gore than others and you never know what'll give a kid nightmares.

There is a new MLM now and the "parties" take place on line where you bid on really cheap jewelry. They are like $5 a piece and they are cute but I've bought a few to support a friend and they all fell apart...like literally fell apart as I was wearing them! I haven't had one piece last longer than a few wearings. Nope, no more time wasted on that.

Only been to two MLM things and they were pretty bad. I was in a bad place and having a hard time making friends when some of my husbands co workers wives invited me to a "get together." I was so excited! Upon arriving, found out it was a MLM for sex toys and stuff. I was told "no pressure to buy!" When it was time for orders, nobody got up to order. (since it was sex toy stuff you went into another room to order). The host gave me a dirty look and Im ashamed to say that I caved and bought some crappy lotion that made me itch like crazy! Another MLM party was for Primer Jewelry, and that was awful! The hostess brought out a bottle of wine and the seller freaked out and said that there was no drinking allowed because these jewlry products were from a christian company. I thought that was so rude of her since it wasnt even her own house. Again my dumb ass bought an over priced peice of jewlry that tarnished and fell apart.

In response to a confession. The "cool parent" thing totally reasonates with me. DH's exwife let DSD7 watch IT. She was then pissed when the 7 year old was afraid to go to sleep
