Once a person gives a gift, they give up control of what happens to it. I don't particularly care about a person's intentions when giving a gift to someone in our family. I assume they have the...

As an adult who never got ANY guidance on responsible spending, I say make him save half and let him spend half. It would be great if there were a charity that interested him, but there's not and...

Honestly, it sounds like everyone else is ok with this and just you have a problem with it. Alcohol as part of a raffle isn't that big a deal. We have wine baskets at auction all that time. As far...

Throwing out the pacifier seems like the most obvious fix.

Also, set some boundaries. You might have to progress from polite to firm. This is your baby and if she's already THAT overbearing (I...

I love my co-leader, I love our girls, and I love their families - but GS is becoming a pain in my rear. There are too many rules but not enough guidelines, if that makes any sense. Let your girls...

I don't think it's as much about sharing a room as it is about being in a state of flux for an undetermined amount of time. Change and uncertainty are hard on anyone. She's gone from her cozy room...
