Heh I googled his wife, she's a redhead with glasses.

Jo Andres.

And she's not your usual Hollywood hottie many of the guys seem to get. She looks normal.

FINALLY have decided on what to contribute to the Labor Day potluck we do with the cabin next door. Usually there's a theme, but people have not gotten organized so it's sort of a free-for-all. I was going to do corn bread, but I'd have to make it tonight, and we don't have the party until Saturday -- it'd be too dry by then. Then we thought veggie tray, but I can't make a veggie tray without it costing at LEAST $20, which is more than I want to spend, especially when I won't eat raw veggies.

Then I suggested root beer floats and Nick loved it. Whew. No work, really, and people can fix their own. I just provide the fixings.

I won't eat root beer floats, either, but the kids will love 'em.

Holy crap. 14yo girl is raped by her teacher. Judge has decided that the girl was mentally older than 14 and is victim blaming.

http://www.twincities.com/breakingnews/ci_239...

Nevermind the fact that the girl killed herself at 16 while this was churning through the courts and the judge never met or spoke with her.

Right? Actually I've seen pictures of him when he was younger...20s-ish. His mouth was closed and his hair a bit longer, he wasn't all that bad. Not hot, but not bad.

I almost always do mango salsa. I can make it a couple days ahead of time. I throw in a couple/few bags of chips (doritos, regular, lime...whatever strikes me at the time) and voila there it is. Inexpensive and barely any effort really.

Never would I support this, nor do I think the girl should be raked through the mud and the teacher excused.
I just want to offer some perspective from the inside. These kids are more aggressive than some realize. No, I do NOT condone this or use it to excuse, I just feel many teachers don't go into teaching to prey on youngsters.
For the girls, I think they get some attention and can't separate their emotions from the age of the person giving it. I have had 8th graders give me their freaking phone number before!! They are ridiculous. Obviously, I threw it away and handled it appropriately, but someone insecure and/or in an unhappy marriage would start to enjoy the attention and the lines would blur.

Again, please don't think I'm excusing it. I am not. I just want to offer it from another side.

I worked with a guy who was a girls' volleyball coach. He told me that junior and high school girls behaved in a way to elicit a response from him, and some were VERY provocative, Including removing clothing or trying to initiate conversations about sex to the degree that he had a strict rule: Never be alone in a room with any of the girls. Ever. And the entire gymnasium was included in that "room" rule.

And he said there was one consistency among them: The most poorly behaving girls did not have still-married parents. He saw their behavior as a result of not having a loving, involved dad in their lives to show them how men should treat women and how women should behave toward men.

yes, I'm partly blaming their dads, but I do know that there are moms who keep their exes away from their kids and use the court system to do it. I feel for those guys who spend allt heir time and money just trying to be in their kids' lives.

you should check out the video I posted last night.
If not, here are the highlights:
-dad brings kids back after visitation
-14 year old does not want to get out of the car
-dad videoing the incident
-she accuses dad of poisoning him(verbally) and that's why he does not want to get out of car
-kid tries to remain calm through whole thing
-mom saying if dad wants more time in the custody arrangement, he can go to the judge.
-dad don't have the money to go thru all the legal proceedings, willing to work out something with her, but she's not having it
-while talking to the kid, she refers to the new husband(in the background) as dad and refers to dad by his name
-she has the attitude that things are great then he goes to his dad's and comes back different, to which he responds that's not true and that they fight every night when he's there and there's no fighting at dad's
-accuses her of hitting him and jacking him up against the wall with her hand on his throat during one argument(cops were there at that point at her request)
-she tried using his siblings to guilt him into getting out of the car
-claims she does not feel he's safe at the father's house even for visitation(and she claimed HE was poisoning the kid on her)

End result, cops said this is a civil matter. We can't force him out of the car, and when she tried to force her way in and open the car, kid rolled the window up on her arm and blocked her. Cops then said if it continued down that road, it would become a domestic disturbance and at that point he definitely would not be able to stay there. Cops told dad he was free to leave with the kid.

Like I said, it was a long video, and even though I jumped through it, it was still very interesting.

I forgot about that, I meant to go back and watch it (no sound on my work computer). Thanks for the summary.

I don't think I normally make big generalizations based on gender, but I think women/mothers are more threatened by sharing custody than men/dads are. I know there are men who are complete sh*ts about the divorce and custody, but I think a majority of the hell raisers are moms.

I will admit, I watched it thru the biased eyes of a father. I imagine, a woman (Stina maybe since she's got the divorced single mother perspective) might be less sympathetic toward the father and identify with the woman in the video. I don't doubt she loves her son and having him not want to live with her was likely ripping her heart out.

I think Stina seems like someone who would think, "What? You want to be in our kid's life and contribute to her upbringing in every way? Praise the lord, I have some HELP in all this."

i await her affirmation or correction.:)

I think Stina also would identify more with the *reasonable* parent, not by gender, since she seems reasonable. I mean, I remember a couple of negative things about her ex, and we all vent in here about someone close to us/in our lives, but it's not like she's gone ragey on him in here. That tells me she's a reasonable person, and a reasonable person to co-parent with.

My point was that I only got to see this exchange. I have no idea the history. Meaning someone with a different perspective may have more experience with an ex that's good at manipulating the situation to make himself out to be the innocent one and make the ex look bad when that's not the case.
