Re: teenage boy staying over with girlfriend

I have 2 teenagers, and when the eldest wanted her boyfriend to stay over, I decided it would be better to have her at home, safe, than outside in the park or in the back of a car. So, firstly I checked that she was happy and it wasn’t down to the boyfriend putting any pressure on her. Then I check...

Re: Tramp in local coffee shop

It rather saddens me to read all of these posts.  Whilst I don't necessarily agree with what is said in the original post, I also find a lot of the responses very shaming and aggressive too.  Sometimes it is a learning curve for others, but that doesn't mean you have to be rude, disrespectful or sh...

Re: What to expect?

What a shame she felt she had to say something.  She may have given up her seat, which of course is her perocative, but she should not have tried to shame you.  I would have told her about your disability, with a smile.  I find whenever you respond to someone like this, politely and with a smile, t...

Re: Wife sharing too much on social media

I do use social media but try to be as discreet as possible and always have to ask my kids before I post to make sure they are OK with it too (they are teenagers). Perhaps you could ask her not to tag all and sundry to each post (it really isn't necessary) and generally people don't tag someone unl...

Thank you all for your comments. He didn’t come in the end. My friend did ask me again even though we had agreed it was no the first time. I then said it was up to her, and they then decided he wouldn’t come, but (wait for it) whilst we were away, the daughter asked me again and I said OK but he dec...

Re: Am I Right To Be Miffed About This Lack Of Consideration? Your Opinions Please!

I would have been equally miffed. Good karma doesn’t always come back from those you help, but it will come. It’s just a shame as she could so easily have shown more gratitude and let’s not get into the time keeping. You are very gracious to have allowed her to dictate the timings. I’m afraid I woul...

Re: dishonest about bursary application

This winds me up! I think taking a place that should go to a child who genuinely needs it, is both immoral and totally dishonest. Just because the system allows parents to do this, doesn’t make it right. It’s would make me feel very uncomfortable and I question your friend, or her husbands ethics. ...

I have booked a holiday and have invited a friend and her children to come too. I have paid for a slightly larger place than I would have normally, and I am paying for the whole accommodation myself. My friend has now asked if her daughter’s boyfriend can come too. I had booked this as a one-off as ...

Re: Sister in law has asked if my teenage niece can lodge with us

I have 2 children both late teenagers and trust me when I say it’s been a rollercoaster. They start wanting to drink, to date, go to clubs, stay up late, talk back, slam doors. Having the responsibility of a teenager is pretty stressful. Plus who is going to pay for the extra mouth to feed, toiletri...

Re: Cases of mumps quadruple in a year, with young adults in London at risk

I realise the vaccine topic is a tricky subject to comment on. I had all the vaccines as a kid and my kids did too. I’m personally not prepared to take the risk of my kids getting any of the serious illnesses, one of which can be far worse in adulthood possibly causing infertility in adult males. R...

Re: Husband's financial deceit means son now can't go to private school

How awful for you, I am so sorry.  Losing trust in your partner can be really hard, especially when it has such an impact on you and your children.  I have to agree with janee, perhaps you should get your husband to tell your son.  After all, he got you into this mess, so he should be the one to ge...

Re: Equity release - bit grumpy brother is suggesting it

It can be very tricky. My sister persuaded my mum to do this because she wanted money from my mum. Luckily my mum’s property had gained value, but it did mean the loan to the company just got bigger and bigger. But if your parents are short of money, it is hard to get extra money much later in life ...
