Should Parents spy on their kids?

I personally think if there has been a change in their behavioral patterns, their moods have been wishy-washy, then yeah keep an eye on them. We need to leave them their freedoms, but also protect them at the same time. my youngest are 12 year old twins. I don't worry too much about my son, but my daughter is a different student. Of late she has been lying to me, spending more time at friends than home, and I am cracking down on both. She's also become disrespectful, and grumpy. So yep I WILL spy on her because something is obviously going on. As a single mother things are harder as you only have yourself as backup figuring these things out. So I will use whatever means are at my disposal. So ad the end of the day, I am available for my kids to talk to, I'll cuddle them when they are sick or hurting, but I will also protect them as any mother should.  (Oct 23, 2012 | post #264)

Bringing Battle Creek back

This article rings true. There are WAY too many gangbangers here. until that issue can be dealt with, can you see any improvements taking hold? When I was a kid we did lots here, now I'm in my 40's and disgusted.  (Oct 23, 2012 | post #1)

Gay Marriage - Battle Creek, MI

1 of my sons is gay, and it hurts him often how he is treated. He is a straight A Senior in school. Always had good grades, and yet he is deemed not allowed to be who he really is. This is just 1 more way the Government is trying to take away our rights and freedoms.  (Oct 22, 2012 | post #11)

Sunny morning to give way to rain, storms

Personally I'm feeling soggy with all this rain of late. I know the farmers and ranchers needed it for crops, but we are past that point. Hopefully this moisture will stay in the ground and help next spring, but not really holding my breath on that 1.  (Oct 22, 2012 | post #1)

avengers motorcycle club

Wow there is a reason you chose nini for your name apparently. It is people like you who cause a lot of the rumours, and the fear of Bikers. Do you know why Biker clubs started? Bet not. Do your research and maybe then you'll learn enough to stop the incendiary comments, not to mention unintelligent ones. and FYI, once you are an Old Lady, you are not passed around either. being an old lady means you are off the market to speak. MAYBE some do rape, but not ALL. You can't paint all bikers with 1 brush and in 1 color.  (Oct 21, 2012 | post #94)

Hello Curious Girl. Yes there is an Avengers MC and no they are not cartoon characters lol. you know what most Bikers are like everyone else. If you show them respect, there is no problem.You do not need to fear them just because they ride a motorcycle. Respect yes. My Father rides for Rolling Thunder. Not an Outlaw group, and you know what? He can be scruffy looking some days, he rides when and where he wants BUT he also has a lot to do with Escorting Veterans, Memorials, and has even riden escort for a deceased soldier. Thank you though for asking and no just letting fear cloud your thought process Riders may look different, and Some DO commit crimes but Not all. Respect is best given to all :)  (Oct 21, 2012 | post #93)

University ban on tobacco

ok so far I have seen 2 people post informatively. Thank you for you 2 using your heads and no personal prejudice. I am not a college student but I saw this in forums and felt the need to read it and then to reply. When I was pregnant with my twins, my physician (who does not agree with smoking) warned me that to quit smoking while pregnant was most likely going to cause a stress related abortion. Now I was trying to quit as pregnant women who smoke disgust even me as a smoker. But being informed to cut down and not quite or lose the babies, I think you know what I chose. Think of any women going to college who might be in the same boat. so you ban tobacco, she stresses from the withdrawal of nicotine, loses her baby or babies. if it was me, I know I would feel the desire to sue for wrongful death. I may smoke but I never smoke in nonsmokers vehicles, houses etc. I never blow smoke in people's faces ever. AND I also if I am by a place of business, schooling etc, will refrain as much as possible, I also throw my butts in the ashtrays provided. it's not every one doing the offending it's the irresponsible smokers, not all. So should we punish responsible smokers due to some who have no manners?  (Oct 21, 2012 | post #28)

I have a question for everyone about disability and need ...

as sad as it is I know from experience. often the surgerys done on spines make things worse. Thank you for your service and I do understand where you are coming from.. I waited 10 years to apply for Disability, but with 12 y/o twins I can't afford a week flat out of it. I was a Black Angus breeder until a year ago and worked until I was half dead. But common sense finally stepped in.  (Oct 21, 2012 | post #12)

I have a question for everyone about disability and need ...

I am 41 I've had Fibromyalgia for 13 years, long before it was a catch all diagnosis. I have had my spine fractured twice, and now have a 10% curve in my spine. I am only now coming to grips with the fact that I am just unable to work. I know how you feel as I see so many on it that seriously don't need it, they just found a way to get out of growing up responsibly. Then there are those like you, like me, like a lot of others who have legit issues that do need it. IF you do decide to apply be forewarned that you can be rejected a few times before receiving it. most jobs available in todays market require a lot of lifting, or standing or sittuing for 8 hrs. all of which I am unable to do. I just began the application process as I can't tolerate being on Welfare. Gotten my 1st rejection. As military or ex military you can apply and use your VA Hospital Doctor. And you have done 3 tours, incidentally my sons have each done 2)and your government does owe you in this case, and ther issue happened due to serving your country.  (Oct 21, 2012 | post #11)

Can anyone tell me a round about number of Hells Angels chapters are currently in Michigan?  (Oct 20, 2012 | post #1)

Hells Angels

Your name says it all. Free speech for everyone, but apparently you mean that only about those who agree with you..odd. And have you heard of Centurions? they are a MC and each one of them are firefighters and police. So basically by saying Bikers...you just called those people maggots. I think you need to do some research. I do not care if it a Family Club, a 1%, or political, there are always some good, some bad. hell the same holds true for everyone! No matter what their upbringing, hobbies, interests, jobs, race, or any other grouping you can think of.  (Oct 20, 2012 | post #102)

hells angels

My Dad is in the Michigan chapter of Rolling Thunder and also Sons of liberty. soooo not 1%ers . I have nothing against any Bikers. Don't mess with them and you are fine. Personally I wish HAMC would make it to Battle Creek, Mi. and get rid of the gangs that are here. my 12 y/o daughter was beaten up by 1 of those gangs! some others are doing some really bad things in town, break-ins, etc.  (Oct 20, 2012 | post #81)

I'm sorry that East Hartford CT is so bad. these days it seems ppl are meaner, and it's only spreading. It's weird the way things change. I'm 41 and when I was a kid we never worried so much about kids safety etc. Yet I live 2 hours south west of Detroit, and in the last month, my 12 year old daughter was attacked by gang members, between 10 and 16 years of age! I had a man in broad daylight try and grab me! It's ridiculous  (Oct 20, 2012 | post #11392)
