I know it is hard and I know it is nauseating to have your kids go with a dead beat, and as a parent we never want to see our children suffer or be hurt...but let that parent rise to the challenge. They will fail...but u will save them from the fantasy dad. I k ow it is harsh and I had to wait 5 years! But it was worth the wait. My story is below... My ...

Marijuana has serious long lasting effects. This study and several other articles based on the same data have shown without any ambiguity that it has long term serious effects. As an epidemiologist I attended a conference in July 2014 where a study was presented on this same cohort. This study followed 1000 new-zealand young middle-class for 20 years from 10 ...

For some reason driving seems to bring out the worst in a lot of people. It can be frustrating from the driver's seat and frustrating as a passenger hence road rage and "back seat drivers". I don't suppose that your mom is yelling on purpose so I don't think that trying to explain to her or asking her nicely to change her behaviour will work. Some people are ...

It sounds like your mom and you need to work on your communication skills, together. This isn't uncommon in the teenage years; you're basically an adult now after all, and it's hard for both of you to work out exactly what that means for your relationship. One of the common issues you have in a relationship like this is escalation. When you were five or ...

When she starts yelling at you, stop/pull over at the earliest point possible and tell her to get out of the car. Most people are taken aback by this because it's something they almost never hear. She will probably then ask why, which is your cue to explain to her that her yelling is distracting you and you do not feel safe with her in the car and are ...

Your mother wants to know that whatever she teaches you, you are learning it. I know how frustrating it must be for you when she yells at you while you are driving. What you have to do is apart from when you and your mum is in the car, try to take notes from her about driving skills.(even if you know enough to drive properly), just show interest in her ...

Yes, you are absolutely correct,Marinov.I often see parents who just hit their kids just because they didn't score well in academics, or watched t.v. for an extra 2 hours, or well, dropped icecream on the carpet. I believe it's not the child who is doing anything wrong, its just their own distress that makes them take it out on their kids. Slowly an ...

When I was a young teenager I started to go OCD. Every time I left my bedroom I had to check all the electrical outlets first (often more than once), and make sure for sure that the light switch was off (by flicking it on and off, usually more than once). One day I decided enough was enough, so I stopped. It was tough at first, but before long it was gone ...

Besides the very good advice of @anongoodnurse I think there is a major point to make: your parents can't magically drain any energy from you. Not at all. That's just a dangerously misleading figure of speech. In each moment there is fresh power, which you can use for good - or for bad: to fight, to block your feelings, to drone on internally about ...

That's a lot of text to go through. But after looking it over it sounds like a situation more common than you may know. I'm not sure what the best path is for dealing with your draining parents, but maybe I can give some idea about how they got that way. You ever notice that the news is pretty much all bad news? That television went from mentally ...

You may not agree with all I say, but please know that it comes from a place of wishing you to find some understanding and balance. Some of it, you will outright dislike. You are in the unenviable position of being a young adult who views himself as more of an adult than he really is, dealing with parents who view you as less of an adult than you really ...
