THe other thing some parents do wrong is expect their older kids to be responsible for /watch the younger kids in the water.

Sorry, but an 8yo can't be responsible for the safety of a 3yo in the water.

Probably the latter, but moving the furniture? Pure OCD.

Ummm, shouldn't the parents have already talked to their kid about sex before he reaches adulthood? That ship has sailed.

LW2: Is he your most frequent guest? If so, try leaving the furniture in the guest room arranged the way he likes it and see if you can live with it.

First off, I agree.

However, I was 4 years old when my older siblings were "responsible" for me at the pool. Luckily, I was already a good swimmer. The "junior" pool didn't cut it for me so I would sneak into the big pool.

I probably could swim better than my older siblings, but still. I was really young.

If you could "sneak into" the big pool, I believe you proved red's point.

I was picturing a lake and not a pool -- I think a lake requires more vigilance -- open waters, you can't see more than a couple of feet into the water, etc. So I can understand your situation.

1: I wonder, after their letter is published, do the LW's honestly expect to see a 180 in human behavior?

2: What the what?
I would tell him where to stuff his fung shui...

3: I think 21 is a bit late for this convo...
