LW1: A gift is a nice gesture, but I am sure not expected. While you're at it, though, you should by both of your daughters some birth control. LW2: Yes, you are shallow.  (Jun 2, 2015 | post #13)

LW1: Turn off Facebook Messenger so she can't see if you're logged in or not. Duh.  (Jun 1, 2015 | post #3)

LW1: Good advice LW2: Are you even supposed to take those meds when you're pregnant? I think it's dangerous for the baby.  (Jun 1, 2015 | post #5)

I think it's a great idea! Sometimes the focus is too much on keeping kids in violent, unstable homes with parents that dont' care and are too busy doing drugs and whatnot to take care of their kids. Then the cycle jsut keep repeating itself. To do something like this, with visitation still permitted and classes, etc. might break that cycle long-term.  (May 20, 2015 | post #101987)

Holy cow - LW 1 is so petty. Do people really think like that??? I have had friends spend more on my kid because she's an only child. I think that is generous, but so unnecessary.  (May 11, 2015 | post #5)

LW1: I agree with Gladys. The ol' bait and switch, but it took 8 years to get fed up wth it. LW2: I was thinking about this this weekend because I was in this situation twice this weekend (one incident involved a TV camera on a day where I didn't bother to do my hair or put on makeup). When you're in public, all bets are off. You're going to eb inthe background of peoples photos sometimes. They don't know who you are, so who cares. I dont' like being videotaped, but if you're outside or in public, you can't expect to remain private all te time.  (May 4, 2015 | post #3)

And even beyond that, you miss having even friendships where you just learn about who you are, you are tied down and don't get the chance to travel and be independent.  (Apr 28, 2015 | post #10)

WEll, maybe not "THE" best, but it certainly is the one time in your life that you're free to date, not real committment to a job, kids, etc. That's supposed to be the time you're footloose and fancy free. It's kind of all ho-hum once you get into your late 20s and beyond.  (Apr 28, 2015 | post #9)

Good idea! I am going to see if my phone can do that. Thanks! I have a Do Not Disturb on my cell that will only allow late calls through if they are from numbers I might get an emergency call from.  (Apr 28, 2015 | post #15)

Dear Abby 4-27-15

Yes, my mother has had cancer in the past year and was in and out of the hospital. She also fell and broke her pelvis in 2 places recently. She also has a bad heart. My dad has had seizures and mini-strokes and almost died from heart issues at Christmastime after an unrelated (and successful) surgery. So, in the past year or two, I have gotten a lot of emergency calls involving hospitals and such because I am the only one of their children living nearby. And some have been in the middle of the night. Waking up to a phone call after I am asleep is very stressful and makes me run to the phone. During the day, I am up and just check it. If it's not them or the hospital, I let it go to vm. It's that jolt awake that is scary.  (Apr 28, 2015 | post #11)

LW1: It's not her business, but doing the math this girl moved in with the guy when she was likely about 17 or 18 years old. That means she has no real experience dating or anything else. She is WAY too young to get married anyway, and they'd likely end up divorced if they do (although she's already given up most of her best years). THe granddaughter shouldn't push the guy in this case. She should eb happy with what she has and know it probably won't last anyway.  (Apr 27, 2015 | post #5)
