Your father's behaviour reads as clearly abusive to me. He is preventing you from accessing means of support (such as the school psychologist or by having a relationship with your mother that he doesn't control). You are afraid that he might kill you. It is not really possible to change who people are by taking to them. There aren't the right words you can ...

You need to check your jurisdiction's law to see if a minor can be admitted as partner in a partnership firm. From first principles I would think very unlikely. Partners in a partnership firm are legally bound to contracts signed by each other on behalf of the partnership. Since minors are not considered to have the capacity to enter into contracts, it is ...

"Does she really need to be a businesswoman instead of just having fun with her FDBGs?" This could be something she looks back on to inspire her to be a proper business woman in the future, so doing both I think could be a fun idea. I don't think she needs to be a business woman, but you can try and treat it like an extra level to the game, save ...

My first reaction, child labor rules and protections. You may intent and plan to run this as fun and a teaching experience. But it comes close to child labor and if checked you may run into problem if not carefully set up. And make sure your child will never have a valid complaint you made her work for you while she was too small to have a paid job out of ...

As others have said, the primary thing is that you make this a fun activity that the two of you do together, not a chore. That means that you will wind up doing the bulk of the actual work; do not expect her to sort half the bricks, handle a camera competently, or anything else. As a rule of thumb children under 10 have an attention span in minutes roughly ...

Can I buy second-hand toys, make them better with my 6.5 years old daughter and sell them for a higher price? Yes you can. But don't expect your daughter to be a true business partner. Make sure they are participating because it is fun to do and don't let it become a chore (preferably for the both of you).

I don't think this would be essentially different from a backyard lemonade stand. Make sure it's something she does for fun, and not something she feels forced to continue with. That's the biggest downside I can think of, but it should be avoidable.

The most important thing for you to do is to remember your role is to support your brother, not to fix him. The absolute most frustrating thing as a parent (or, as a person!) is to have people trying to fix you by second guessing your choices. If your conversations are primarily "You should do X," or "Why aren't you doing X," then your ...

You might have to treat the situation like one should for new parents - while they often get offered babysitting, it can go against their instincts of not letting the baby go. So offering relief from everything else is the better way to go. There is one quote in your post that seems to indicate exactly that: Later he said he thinks that it would take his ...
