    Screen Time and Children

    So I've seen this thread pop up for the last few days but only read it today. @Amanda Jane As a gamer I'm biased but I have to say if your daughter is into Among Us that's pretty good! There are definitely worse things she could be into (like stupid stunts on Tic Tok). At least Among Us is a...

    Advice required for teen daughter

    I don't have experience raising teens but it seems to me she's being rebellious. I mean, think about it, her own family is broken up and this other family is taking over. She's already going through so many changes with her body and her hormones this has to be especially hard on her. How long...

    POLL - Play Dates - Does age matter?

    While I think that's a pretty big age difference and the 10 y/o will probably be bored by the 6 y/o or want to boss them around I do think if they spend enough time together they'll have something in common to do (thinking neighbors, family, close friends that are like family, etc). But if this...

    discipline / crossing boundaries question

    I only have a small baby but I am a gamer and was one growing up. That said, every kid is different so I think you'll have the best instinct for whether it will work on your son. For example, I'm a female and pretty nomconfrentational. I'm not especially rebellious and prefer to keep the peace...

    The great discipline discussion...

    My baby is too little for any discipline yet I think (3mo) but I'd probably use the corner if anything "traditional". I don't remember any worse being used on me. That said, if my parents knew me well, they'd know that having my game files deleted would've been heartbreaking and a true lesson...

    Inlaw discord 😤

    Yikes, sorry to hear you're going through this and it doesn't seem like your husband is entirely on your side. Have you talked to your husband about how this behavior might be enabling MIL and SIL to continue taking advantage of you?

    Found gay porn on sons laptop

    I haven't been a parent for a long time but I hope my thoughts still help in your, and other's, decisions on how to handle stuff like this. I get that you don't want to confront your son or seem like you're snooping but if the laptop really is for family use then the history is free game. What...

    First smiles

    Hi everyone, I'm not sure if everyone would find this something worth bragging about but just getting through her colic phase this is something I consider a victory. My daughter smiled at me last week on Tuesday. She smiled at my husband/her daddy yesterday. After weeks of almost nonstop...

    Getting to know each other (again)...

    Does anyone mind linking me the rules for the forum? I'm going to guess it's ok for me to reply to this since the other message wasn't removed and it's over a month old. 1. What were you doing 10 Years Ago? My then boyfriend now husband and I moved out together with a buddy of ours and I was...

    New mom, new member

    Hello all! I'm a new mom (my daughter just turned 10 weeks) and we're starting to get out of the colic phase. Since I have some time with my hands free I really wanted to join a forum community to learn new ideas and interact with other parents. I'm 30 years old, I should be going back to...
