I am having a problem about not allowing my kids friends to come with us on our family vacation. I have saved money for our family vacation. I know that the friends family do not want to take a vacation saying they can not afford it. I do let them know they are able to afford a vacation if you take 5 to 7 months to save for it. We are not rich, just working hard to save for things we want. Our family vacation will be just for my kids and spouse. We will go to Universal Studio for 2 days and go to several dinner shows like pirates and medieval dinner shows. We will not go to Disney because my kids are bored with Disney all four parks. I saved so my family will have a great time, but it is only for my family. What do you think about this, am I wrong to feel like this?

I was mad at my sister about not respecting me at my mother's birthday party. Now looking back on it, she was mad at something else, but she turn her hate to me. I wanted to yell at her, but I could not. I got mad at her and did not want to talk to her or look at her for four weeks. Then I thought to myself what if my sister dies, how would I feel about letting hate come in my heart. That is when it hit me. I see why people who do not let hate stay with them. Once I forgave my sister and forgot the hate, I felt so much better. The more you stay mad at someone, the longer you keep yourself sick with hate and you are not able to grow or to move on. If I learn anything this year from Oprah's life classes, it is to release the stress in your life. I hope everyone have a Wonderful New Year! I know I will!

I know that my son will like the puppy. I promise him the puppy for his b-day in Nov. of this and last year. Let me tell you about my son. My son is a special needs kid and I can not afford a service dog so a puppy of his own is what I will be able to give him. My son is a pre-teen and he loves our 2 years old cat. I know he want a dog because he talks about a dog every day now. I would love for someone to give me your opinion.

I think that they should be able to help you when you need it. My 14 years old child did not want to go to a child fun play to help with my special needs child. I wanted my oldest child to keep an eye on my youngest child, because I want very tired from working that night. This was a special day for my youngest child (Birthday party). I was so upset that my oldest child is so selfish not want to help me. This is the oldest child first time not wanting to help, but I want it to be the last. The selfish act is not just hurting me, but the younger child has feeling too. What should I do to my oldest child? Please give me your opinion.

I have been married for 17 years and for the last eight years I have a separate room from my husband. We are happy with this arrangement. Since I have been on disability any type of noise bothers me (my husband's snoring). What is wrong with this?

I have a 14 year old daughter and I want her to be independent. I want her to take the bus to her summer job. I do not want her to call me to pick her up. Some of my family members feel that I am hard on my daughter. Please let me know that I am right about this.

My Auntie died a week ago and she will be missed. She was a person that if you had a problem, you could talk to her about anything. When I was dating my spouse 27yrs ago I met his auntie. From that day she became my auntie and a friend to me. I have been very sad since her death. I know she would like for me to not be upset. I called her auntie, but she was like the mother-in-law I never had.(because my spouse mother died in 1978) I know I have to one day at a time, but it is so hard.

I would say an educated mother would be a better mother. My mother did not finished high school til later in her life, then she went to college because I did. My grandmother did not think it was important for a girl to go college as long as you know how to cook and clean that was okay. Times are changing. I know that with education come wisdom and a better life for you and your family.
