    I’m 20 and I have a girlfriend who is 19. I don’t have the financial capability to move out yet but I’ve been trying to save money as best I can. My parents will literally ruin every chance I have of having sex. One time they came home early and caught my girlfriend and I and kicked her out. They also go through my room all the time when I’m gone and take away my condoms. They take my car keys at night so I can’t go over to my girlfriends house. Sometimes they get up in the middle of the night and check on me (Seriously, I’m 20, not 12). All they can say is “Our house, our rules” if that’s your excuse then you can’t forbid me from going to her house because I can technically have sex over there where it’s not “your house”. My parents have sex every night but apparently it’s so wrong if I do it. They wouldn’t even know we were doing it if they didn’t come check on us every 30 minutes. I’m a grown a$$ man and I can’t even have sex because my parents want to keep controlling me. They’ve even threatened to set up cameras in my bedroom. What can I do about this? Do I have to put up with this until I move out?

    I'm a child, still in middle school, and I live with my mom & brother most of the time because my parents split up when I was nine. I see my dad every other weekend. For the past 2-3 years, my mom has been controlling, intimidating, manipulative, and has refused to ever be pleased. She either yells or raises her voice at me any time I make a mistake, which in her eyes, is any time I do something. For example, I'll 'sweep the floors wrong' or misplace something, etc. and my mom will yell at me and try to intimidate me and insult me. I'll try to be nothing but polite to her, and she yells at me and doesn't give me any chance to explain how I feel. She puts me down any time I upset her. Any time I upset her, she gets in my face, uncomfortably close to me, and yells or raises her voice at me. She insults me and in passive aggressive ways, tries to make me feel bad and tells me everything is my fault. She says I am responsible for a lot of her problems and I have begun to feel that I really am responsible. She says I never do anything useful, but makes me do all of her chores around the house and clean up after her. She makes me worried, scared, guilty, and upset. For the past few years she's made me feel worthless and my mental health is horrible, and I constantly have suicidal thoughts, and her yelling at me doesn't make it better. I've told her about how I feel and she's put me on more than 10 medications and ignoring it instead of trying to help. I don't know what to do. Help

    I voted for trump and she hates the man. She is drinking almond milk which is the reason dairy farmers are going bankrupt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It makes me sick that she voted for killary and is buying the medias lies that he slept with a pornstar and stole the election. We have most of these fights in the car and she no longer wants to drive with me or come over to the trailer if I am gonna talk about trump or have Limbaugh on. Because we both get heated esp me. Today limbaugh was talking about how certain commie websites are not letting you write any negative reviews about Comey's book and she says it is isn't true, they like them edited a certain way. We ended up having a fight and she ended up leaving. Her whole generation is soft and shiftless and has been brainwashed by the media and it just makes me weep that she won't understand what a great christian man trump is.

I understand why they broke up and support my son. I know she is a good person that did something stupid. I would like to send her a note telling her that I thought so much of her and wish her the best. I have no intention of mentioning my son or why they broke up. My son does not mind if I do this. Is this OK?

    My 16 year old sister’s 18 year old boyfriend constantly hits on me, a thirteen year old girl. Whenever I ask him for a favour, such as picking something up for me at the store, I assure him I’ll pay him back for the cost. But then he refuses and says he wants something better than money. I’m not ignorant and I know he’s referring to sexual favors, as he’s also blatantly asked me for nude pictures of myself. One time, about midnight on a school night, he wouldn’t stop contacting me and asking what I could do to convince him to help me. I told him to forget about the favor altogether as I was extremely uncomfortable and to the point of tears. He’s since apologized for that one incident, saying he went too far, but continues to flirt with me whenever my sister is not in the room. They plan on getting married when she leaves high school and are often found discussing their future together. I know she loves him deeply, which makes me hesitant to speak up about what’s happened. This hesitance is also reinforced by the fact that all of my family members seem to adore him. Do I tell someone and ruin their relationship and my sister’s trust in those around her (which will happen if she finds out)? Or do I keep quiet and hope his advances stop and let everyone live in blissful ignorance?

    My ex is requesting full custody of our daughter who he has only met once (when she was 2 months old.) When I offer to arrange visits for him to spend time with her, he refuses. He has no relationship with our now 8 month old daughter. He wants full custody so he can have our daughter without me in the picture, so his girlfriend doesn’t get mad. On top of that, he had denied paternity of her three seperate times to stall the child support process. He has never sent our daughter anything. He doesn’t ask about her. We also live in different states now, as he abandoned me and my daughter while I was 5 months pregnant with her. Can someone like this gain full custody? I am baffled.

    I'm a 20-year-old man. My father has a bad attitude, he's rude, disrespectful, controlling, short-tempered, etc. He doesn't support my career choice to be a nurse because he thinks it's for women. He doesn't like that I like to spend more time with my mother and sisters as opposed to him and my brother. I'm a lot closer with my mother and sisters because they don't judge me and they support everything I do. I get the impression that he doesn't like that I'm not a manly man, and he wants me to spend more time with him to try to influence me to become one. I am who I am. I'm my own person with my own beliefs, interests, personality, etc. Why can't he just support me instead of trying to change me? I'm also gay, but still in the closet. He's a big homophobe. Almost every achievement I've accomplished, he has put down in some way, whether it was getting good grades in school, getting my first job, going off to college, etc. I'm in my third year of college. He told me once, "You shouldn't go to school because you're just going to end up being a janitor." That was very hurtful. Even when everyone around me congratulates me when I accomplish something, he just gives me a dirty look and then walks away. It's like everything I do is not good enough for him. Being around him is like walking on eggshells, because he gets violently angry over the smallest things. He has told me once that I'm not good at anything. These things have brought down my self-esteem. What can I do about this?

    Best answer: Fathers and mothers both contribute to a happy child and women who grab the child and move out generally don't realise the damage they do that child mentally by depriving them of their father. I realise some fathers are causing other problems for the child's mental state say by being abusive or alcoholics or similar, but many are good men whose wives got bored and went off believing a new man would be good for her. The really stupid mothers will then deny the father any access to the child out of selfishness and then wonder why their child grows up to be such a feral. Boys are the ones who suffer the most as a good father figure guides them on how to be a good man themselves. Many young men who start being antisocial and criminal come from single parent families where they were denied the experience of learning from watching their dad.

    What if rent, food, utilities, bills, insurance, etc take up most of your paychecks? And then there's the retirement fund. There is no money left over for a college fund.

Is this okay? She was calling me a niggger and other hurtful words.(im white and so is she)

    My daughter turns 16 today and she wants a ring. She's had jewellery before but they were necklaces and bracelets. It's just that I tend to picture someone older when I think of someone wearing a ring.
