14 Year Old Thinks Rules Too Strict - NO MORE RESPONSES PLEASE. THANKS for ALL!

My 14 year old daughter seems to think a few of my rules are too strict. So, she asked me if I’d get the opinion of other mothers – particularly those I don’t know personally – and who have daughters her age. The rules she disagree with are as followed: My daughter can only attend two outings per month. Note: This includes things like going to the movies, hanging out at the mall, birthday parties, etc. This also includes spending the night away from home. My daughter thinks she should be allowed to do more each month and...

Debating Bunion Surgery - Need Help!

Hi there. I am 36 yr old sahm of 2 boys, age 5 & 7.

I am really into exercise (ran a marathon, love to do zumba) but now it just hurts when I lace up my shoes. I would have to be off my foot for around 6 wks - Obviously I drive with my right foot & am just scared at the thought of my kids needing my help & I'll be laid up! I am trying to...

Heel Pain in 11 Year Old

I am wondering if maybe my son has Severs disease. He has been complaining of his heel hurting on the bottom for about 2 or 2.5 weeks now. He says it has gotten better but still annoying. Severs disease seems to be common in his age group but it doesnt seem like there is much doctors do for it. Any one else have this issue and was it Severs or what was it?? Thanks!!!! :)

10 Year Old Defiant Son

I am so desperate for any advice from other parents of 10 year old boys. My son is not at all respectful of my discipling him, he doesn't care what I threaten him with. He is afraid if I say I am going to go get dad though. I just don't know what to do to get him to understand that what I say goes. He also says he doesn't care if he fails his classes, although we have treatened punishment and offered incentives to doing well. He will do good one week and the next doesn't care. I guess I would just like to know that there are other moms out...

Wart on Bottom of Foot

My 10 year old has 2 warts on the bottom of her foot. She has been to the doctor twice and they put this liquid on the wart. She is not suppose to walk on her foot for 8 hours, but when she goes to walk to the bathroom the dried up liquid falls off, so its not working. Its suppose to blister then I guess start eating some of the wart and skin away. The doctor says if this doesnt work we might want to consider going to a podiatrist to get it scraped out. Any suggestions on what you have done in the past? My husband had them scraped out as...
