It's especially urgent to address cyberbullying at a time when teen mental health has taken a hit. But encouraging news from a new study suggests that nurturing gratitude in students could reduce online abuse. @Jamespmcconchie @GreaterGoodSC https://t.co/TJhjqvEtXk
What do we do? Like, seriously, what do we do?
Calling our members of Congress hasn’t worked yet. Marching hasn’t worked yet. “Thoughts and prayers” are worthless. People say “just homeschool” but here’s the thing, I DO. But all kids deserve to be safe at school, not just mine. We know the logical solution is gun control and banning assault weapons, but it’s not happening, so how do we MAKE it happen!? What. Do. We. Do?
While boys today are more comfortable wearing pink than they were a generation or so ago, they still face pressure to think and act in certain ways. https://t.co/3ck6bUn7Kc @NextGenMen @boypodcast https://t.co/cSaZ41781k

Do I tell my kids about my past?
My kids are soon to be teenagers and I’m worried about them making bad decisions…sex, drugs, etc. Both have shown secretive, shady behaviors recently and I can’t help but reflect on my own teen/early adult years. I started smoking cigarettes and weed at 13, sex at 15 and eventually a full blown heroin addict at 21. By 25, I was in recovery and 20 years later I’m an average middle class suburban dad scared shitless that my kids won’t be as lucky as me. Should I be honest with my kids about my experience? Will it do any good?
Update: Feeling awful about taking ex to court.

I contacted my divorce lawyer the next morning and she sent a certified letter out that afternoon. I had a check from him for the full amount he owed me in hours. He apologized and we are going out to breakfast as a family this Saturday. Thanks for all the advice, all I needed was a backbone. Anticlimactic, but an update nonetheless.
What weird but probably harmless thing do your parents or in-laws love to say?
My MIL'S favourite is saying to the baby whenever I sit down to eat: "you'll be tasting that later".
What do you put in an Easter basket for a baby??
My daughter will be almost 8 months old at Easter and we’ll be spending it with family and all 7 of the little cousins. Before you tell me she doesn’t need one, I know. My original stance was “She’s too young for an Easter egg hunt and to eat chocolate, there’s no point” but then I found out that one of my nieces sobbed at Christmas because she thought that Santa forgot to fill her baby brothers stocking…. So we’re doing one to keep the magic alive for the rest of the nieces and nephews who will also be getting one. So what the heck do I put in it???
Haakaa Users, Question for You
I have an oversupply and fast letdown in one breast. It was suggested to me to collect the milk that leaks from that breast while feeding baby on the opposite breast, I'm very open to this so that I can increase my stash as I don't pump regularly yet (been told not to get as baby is only 4 weeks). I read the haakaa can collect the letdown, but it uses suction so would it not be stimulating my breast to produce? Do I have to worry about it causing my oversupply to get worse? Do you have other suggestions about what to use to collect letdown that might be better or is the haakaa the best option?
Daughter will be 6 in a month. I'm at my wits end, need advice.
I'm her dad. She absolutely refuses to learn how to put on her clothes, or her shoes, especially when I'm around. Her mom has much better luck but with me she'd rather revert to being a baby for some reason. I finally snapped after her bath just now and told her she couldn't come downstairs until she dressed herself. She's been lying in bed for 90 minutes, I've been up there 3 times, she won't even try. I don't fucking get it. She had neighbour kid over here that other day to play, she's exactly 1 year younger. The kid has to go home, she goes and gets her velcro shoes, puts them on, grabs her jacket, puts it on, and no problem. Evelyn has NEVER done that. She's afraid of growing up for some reason.
Really scared to have sex for the first time
My daughter will be 8 weeks Friday. My MIL is going to watch our baby Saturday so we can get dinner and come back to our place and have sex. I really don’t want the pressure of “the baby might cry at any minute” the first time. We only had sex like 4 or 5 times while I was pregnant because I was extremely sick. I miss sex and I’m ready, but I’m terrified. I had a very small tear and had some stitches. I’ve been cleared since 4 weeks. I still have a raised ridge on my perineum. I can tell it’s scarred. Every single time I touch the area, my legs feel like jello. I’ve had SEVERAL nightmares about having sex and it being super painful, tearing open, etc. I’m absolutely terrified. I don’t want to tell my husband the extent of how afraid I am, because he would take it as me not wanting to and would t go through with it— and I DO want to. I miss being intimate with my husband so much. I’m just scared. There’s not really a point to this. I just wanted to tell someone.
Yes, it is counter-intuitive to refrain from assisting a child! But when we help a child to do something she might be able to do for herself, we are robbing her of a vital learning experience and ultimately not helping at all. -@janetlansbury #family #parenting

Babies being babies are just too cute
At about 4 months my baby would lift up his legs for me when I was changing him, I found it adorable. 2-3 weeks ago my baby started holding his feet and flexing his toes while up in the air fascinated with himself. He knows he’s able to touch them and it progressed to well everyone puts my feet near their face so …. I wonder if I can bring them closer to me and now it’s just *baby puts his foot in his mouth* 😂 Every time we change his diaper he’s immediately doing baby gymnastics to shove his little feet into his mouth. Even when he’s fully clothed, he will flex his legs around and up in the air and then get this look on his face like OH FEETTTTT! I love this stage so much. Feel free to share ur favorite little thing 🥰
