Yeah yesterday was kind of a blur, and today I’m just tired. Everyone said they liked the toast/speech, so yay me I guess… now to pay for it all. Seriously, I like my new son-in-law - he’s basically a younger me, so since I’m mildly narcissistic, it works out.
It depends on what was said really. You don't always want them to always walk away, at the very least they can report the abuse. I know, it's the wussy trying to do. Who cares. At least it puts it in schools court when it happens again.Daughter is getting suspended from High School. Some boy has been talking shit to her all week and today came up to her and got in her face. She punched him in the mouth. Now matter how much we want them to be better than us... Sigh.
Yeah it's one of those mixed blessing things. I have raised her to not be a victim. She has her own heavy bag on the back patio and she doesn't slap. She balls her fist and punches. Part of the issue is since we moved to NY, there is a sense of "no responsibility for your actions" up here. Kids think they can do and say what they want and nothing will happen. Back home you run your mouth you get your bell rung.It depends on what was said really. You don't always want them to always walk away, at the very least they can report the abuse.

I remember the first time my son got in a "fight". A kid hit him, he didn't hit back, and they were both suspended for fighting, I had to meet with the principal and a counselor along with him. It went just like you always heard it does. They started with the "it doesn't matter who starts the fight we have to suspend everyone". I responded with the typical, "son, next time wipe the floor with him". They gave me the, " that's not our intention". I followed with the, "that's the obvious result". He got suspended once more for fighting, the kid hit him and he wiped the floor with the kid. No one threatened him again. I could add a ton of details but suffice to say sometimes bullies shouldn't be picking fights, it doesn't suit them. My son isn't the toughest guy but to make things stop sometimes you have to stand up, especially when the outcome is obvious.
Tell her everytime she makes it to the top she gets to spend 10 minutes on TikTokI'm building a rock wall (finally) for my 3.5 yo daughter right now. Inside the house, so she has something kinda active inside this winter. 4ft x 8ft right now, but I'll put up another sheet if she uses it regularly.
Ideas on a good way to motivate her to get up to the top? I was going to put a quarter or a dollar or something at the top and tell her she can put it in her piggy bank if she gets up there, but I'm not sure if it would be better just to leave the accomplishment itself as the motivation.
Yea, well, it's been like 2 weeks and I still haven't gotten a fucking macaroni necklace or anything so I'm not seeing the upside yet.Dude she's cute as a button. Must take after her mom.
It was really hard for me, too, to leave my kids for the first time with strangers knowing they were going to have this whole part of their lives that didn't include me. It gets easier, and I even learned to find value in it. It gave them something interesting to talk about with me and their mother.
My main concern is this is the 4th time in two years she has clocked someone. I am worried about self control issues and am working with her on it. Like me, she does not like to walk away when she can.
