I haven't had any issues going to the museum with Asher That’s good to know! Do you get asked any questions when you take your dog in? I didn't get asked any questions, lots of random people gushing over how cute he was though I have patches that say Do Not Pet and Do Not Distract but lots of peopl...

I've been to several art museums with my SD. Nobody has ever given me a hard time over him. I would recommend making sure you bring a short leash (no longer than 4ft (100cm ish)) to ensure that your SD stays very close to you and doesnt touch any art (if it's a "modern" art museum with sc...

I’m going to be going to a museum in the next couple of weeks, and I’m a little bit nervous about how it will go. It’ll be the nicest place I’ve taken her so far, and I’m worried that people will give me a hard time about it. I really hate conflict. I’m also worried that she won’t be perfectly well-...

I agree that I am part of the problem. I guess what is bothering me is that I don't feel backed up by my wife. Things always seem to somehow be the result of how I behave, talk, etc. This event just was the tipping point. Thanks for your answer. If you tell her how you feel and admit that you have ...

I just wish we had a better system of "trades"-oriented education like they do in European countries. In the US, it's almost like it's "college or bust." In the US, we don't make use of Gardner's "multiple intelligences" enough. We need a plumber at least as much as we...

I’ve experienced similar situations. My dad and my son don’t have a good relationship. My dad and ex set my son off. They’re impatient, use a mean tone with him, and get angry over impulsive behavior that my son who has ADHD can’t always help which makes him behave worse. It’s really frustrating bec...

My nephew totally flunked out of college----but he went back, and eventually got his degree. Are you going to encourage your cousin to try college again, or try something like "x-ray technician," or something where you can get a certificate in? She also thinks she’s stupid at this point w...

I want to learn to drive stick-shift! I hated going to school. I was bothered by the kids, and bothered by most of the teachers, too. I wasn't exactly "happy" in school. It got a little better in my senior year in high school. There was no such thing as "homeschooling" back when...

I can change a tire, and put fluids in the car. If I read up a bit, I could do my own oil change.

Otherwise.....it's pumping gas and calling AAA for me!


I should learn how to do other stuff, but I’m just not interested. I don’t really like cars.

Though it would've been cool if dad, my grandpa, and my greatgranpa decided to teach me a bit of their jobs -- oh, except who would've taught a little girl carpentry, electronics, mechanics, and plumbing??? I taught both my daughters how to drive a stick shift. It was brutal. I spent a year doing i...

I wasn't homeschooled, but my mom read to me a lot when I was a little girl and instilled in me an early love of reading. Reading with one’s kids is a lot of fun. Great memories for the child and parent! It’s much more important to learn to love books than to learn to read as a preschooler, I’ve fo...

I’m really curious to hear your experiences. My personality is much different from when I was a child. When I was 10, I was gutsy, bold, annoying, outgoing, and wasn’t afraid to go after what I wanted. I’m pretty much the opposite of that now. My personality shifted in my mid-teens. It might have be...
