Okay my family is awesome but lately my mom can’t trust my dad’s side of the family as much as she used to. Should I be on her side or whatever you want to call it?? But i really love my dad’s side of the family but lately they can’t keep promises. I feel trapped. Please help me.

Why do family members find it easier to help friends than their own family members? And then come back to you (the family member who they didn’t help) and ask for help because the same friends that they helped aren’t able to come through for them.

How does a family volunteer with children during the holidays?

September 9th, 2010

My husband and I live very far from any family and every year we spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with just our small children. As this is nice and special, we both wish to make this year and possibly the the future years memorable ones and do something meaningful.

Since our kids are small, we know that this will pose a roadblock to certain things.

But we wish to start volunteering our Thanksgiving and/or Christmas Eve nights to a shelter, hospice or nursing home.

Anyways, any other suggestions?

God bless

How can I be adopted by a Japanese family and start living in Japan?

September 8th, 2010

This may sound crazy but im really sick of life. My friends, family, everything. Im wondering if there is some program that has a Japanese family adopt an American child into their life. I WOULD just go live in Japan, but seeing how i’m not fully capable of supplying for myself yet, i’d like to be adopted by a Japanese family, live with them until i’m old enough to start supplying for myself and then start living my own. PLEASE tell me if u have any knowledge of a program such as this.

How do I get my family to stop buying so many toys for my kids?

September 7th, 2010

How can I ask nicely for my parents and my husband’s parents to stop buying so many toys for my two girls? Last year at Chrismas, I could only get my daughter a Leap-pad and some cartridges because I knew our families were getting her so much stuff. My oldest has so many toys she doesn’t value any of them, and she often gets doubles from many members of the family.

We recently moved over seas, and I had to donate so much to the Thrift Store and give them to friends. I’m really thankful that we don’t live so close right now because of this. But we’ll only be here for one more year. How do I nicely let them know that a trunkload of toys at every Christmas and Birthday is just too much?
Honey, it bothers me because:
1. They won’t value their possessions
2. We don’t have room for it all
3. Nothing is special or earned
4. Presents are not the best way to show love
Thank you all for your serious answers. Maybe I will set a 2 toy limit and take my kids with me to the goodwill with everything else.

How would a traditional Chinese family feel about their son marrying a prostitute?

September 5th, 2010

I just want to know if it’d be acceptable, or would that bring shame to his family. He’s 32 years old, he comes from a wealthy family, but he isn’t married yet or has any children. Do you think marrying a prostitute is something a traditional Chinese man would even DO, and if he would, would that be disgraceful?

How do I help my family and keep the peace?

September 4th, 2010

My grandfather got married to a new wife, 5 months after my grandmothers death(married 47 yrs). Her past two husbands have died of brain tumors. Now my grandfather’s behavior is becoming strange. The family is sure he has not had a stroke. He changed his doctor of 25 yrs to her doctor when they were married. My family would like to get a toxicology test done on my grandfather, but are unsure how to approach him without it sounding like an attack on his new wife. Any suggestions-please keep them legal!
