In response to a confession. Your son sounds like a really compassionate young man and teenage girls can be terrifying lol. Help him learn to say no. There's a good lesson to be taught here. Coercion isn't consent. She basically coerced him into a date. Sure, it's just an innocent date this time, but what is this situation teaching them? I hope that didn't sound harsh. I didn't mean for it to. Parenting sucks sometimes.

Ugh, parenting. My friend's dd17 and my ds17 started talking to each other on Instagram. The girl really wants to date my son but he said while she's cool to talk to, he's not interested in dating bc she's really needy and insecure. Like if she sees he's online but doesn't answer her texts/DMs immediately, she gets passive-aggressive. So imagine my surprise when my friend texted me today that they're going out on Saturday afternoon. I asked ds and he said he felt backed into a corner because she's always asking to hang out and gets sad if he says no. Then he said he was going to find a way out of it. Ugh son, no. I told him teen girls are fragile and hormonal and he can't lead her on and then cancel. The least he could do is have lunch together instead of their bigger, date-ish plans, and tell her he just wants to be friends. Is that the right advice?

...so I told him to strip his bed and wash the sheets and blankets. After that he can go to his room, after he hands me his phone and laptop. This grumbling and cursing stuff has got to stop. I know he's a teenager, but he's not going to grow out of this unless I keep on top of him. I'm so tired of it though. Today I just want to run away from home. :(

Teenage son is driving me insane. I asked him to get dressed so we could go return some jeans he'd gotten for Christmas that were the wrong sign. He grumbled about having to go with me, so I told him I'd be happy to return two pairs of fifty dollar jeans and spend the money on myself if that would be better for him! Seriously- does he think that I feel like going to the mall? I have things I'd rather be doing.

DS is almost 18. After a long battle, I was given custody when he was 4. All these years his dad and stepmom have always had this thing about things they buy him (or that he buys himself with money they/that side of the family give him) staying at their house. It's so ridiculous and petty - there were even fights about things as small as pencils when he was little. I've had to buy duplicates of expensive things because "theirs" can't come here. So for Christmas, they gave him a Bluetooth headset for when he's driving. And sure enough, stepmom tells him the next time he's there, he has to bring it back. So...what? He can only use it when he's driving around on the weekends he's there? Because he'll go for an overnight during the week, drive to school the next morning and be home for a week. Why should he have to have TWO headsets, one for there and one for here? Ds is just as angry as I am.

SO many arrows referring to previous confessions. Why don't you just answer in the comments?? This is an anonymous website FFS, what are you afraid of?

I feel childish my dad mentioned he’s been considering moving states since where he lives is too expensive and he can’t get around much on his own. my brother is looking at moving at the end of the year and if he goes my mom plans on going too. It would leave my dad all alone. I told him I thought it would be great if he came and lived with ds and I. I could use the help with him watching ds when he has to skip school for sick days, he perked up at the idea of helping me. He just told me he offered my brother to use his VA loan to buy a place where my brother wants to live if my brother would let my dad move with him. My dad is hard to live with, so it’s not like I’d fight to have him come live with me. but ds and I are the only ones in the family who enjoy spending time with him. And if he follows my brother he’ll be living with my mom too. Idk why he wants to live with them when I jumped at the opportunity to have him live with us.

In response to a confession. That's so awful. This whole thread made me so mad. I hope that woman is able nail his ass. This probably sounds dumb, but I had no idea people in the military could restrict money like that from their spouse.

In response to a confession. No, he's giving her less than half of what he's paid for having a wife and child, which is called BAH. He's keeping ALL of his regular military pay.
