    What to do when your tween suddenly wants to stop doing something she loves?

    What do you do when your daughter suddenly decides within a few days that she no longer wants to cheer or tumble when just a week ago she was excited about it? About two weeks ago I asked her how bad she wanted to cheer and she said she wanted it. I told her that a lot of girls will be trying out so I wanted to sign her up for some private lessons so they can help her with anything that she needs to work on. She was o.k. with it and we went to one lesson and she enjoyed it. Within the past few days....

    Hi, I am a 50 year old mother of two ADHD children, 10 and 8 years old. I've gone back to school to get a masters in Communication.

    My daughter is addicted with KPop

    My 17-year old is addicted to Kpop. She even wanted to learn Korean language! She sings every day, not even sure what the songs are all about. I don’t know if it’s a good thing or not but it’s annoying me! A foreign language is not bad to learn but having to deal with it everyday in a nonsense way is a big NO for me! I am also sure that you guys here have the same dilemma. How do I deal well with my daughter?

    Cousin is hooked to Thai ladies. Should I give him a talk?

    My cousin watched Thai movies over the past few months. Needless to say, he’s now obsessing with every Thai. He fell in love with the culture and the women (I know right.) There’s nothing wrong with loving another country’s culture and all but that’s not what’s concerning me. The problem is that, he’s still 13 years old. He’s “fangirling” so much to a point that he’s becoming a bit too “perverted” for someone his age. He’s been saying things like he wants to love as many Thai ladies as he can and....
