How did you get through college, did your parents pay for anything or did you do it all alone?
I am just wondering for you students or graduates, did they pay?
I want to go to medical school too, and my mother can not afford to even send me to college, let alone medical school so I am on my own when the time comes. I would not want to burden my mother anyway.
What did you do?
What are good jobs for college students?
The only thing my parents did was teach me a good strong work ethic. I paid for college all myself.
First off, I decided to stay in-state, for tuition to be less. Than I got 2 scholarships (one from the state of Nevada, the other from the University) that covered all of my tuition in full. In fact, those scholarships would actually OVER-pay my account, so I actually recieved an extra 400 dollars a semester. I got PAID to go to college.
However, obtaining those scholarship wasn’t easy. I had to keep my grade up throughout high school, and continue to do so at my university. I Applied to A LOT of scholarships, doing surverys or essays.
Also, In order to pay for all of my books, and parking fees, I have held down a job for all 4 years of my undergraduate studies. I worked Retail awhile, as a store supervisor, and I worked in an office as a project Assistant, making phone calls, or putting together large mailings. Both jobs were vary flexible with my classes, I just had to make sure I left enough time during the “store open” hours to work.
So… I plan on graduating in Spring 08 with a Bachelor’s of Science, and NO debt.
That may change because I will have to go out of state for my graduate studies, but No, my parents still won’t be helping me. I’m on my own, and very proud to be.
What is a very good parent protection software for the internet or where I can go for reviews?
I’m considering moving the computer into my teen’s room and if I do this, I want a very good parent protection software. Can anyone offer suggestions for one that they have used or where I can go for reviews of different ones. So far all the websites I have found are hosted by the actual program, so I don’t trust them. Thank you!
Internet safety is an extremely important concern and many parents do not realize this until too late. While it is important to respect your child’s privacy you should also know that he or she is safe. There are plenty of good software solutions available for internet safety, such as K-9 web protection which is free or Nanny Net which is available at $49.00.

How much should the man have to help when both parents work??
Ok- here is another side of the question – since you all seem to think I am not doing my share. I do ALL the cooking, ALL the cleaning, ALL of the getting up in the middle of the night and most of the shopping. I do the disciplining, changing the diapers, helping with the homework, running errands, and still find time to play with the kids too. I do work ten hours a day, he works 8 and I make as much money as him. And let me say that this is all VERY exhausting-especially now that I am pregnant. There are MANY good job opportunities with better pay and beneftis (which his job does not offer now) that he could go get. Right now the kids health insurance comes from me. We get by just fine now with me working but if I were to stay home we will not. I plan on starting an at home business but it takes a while to get it off the ground. We both wanted a big family – but only one of us seems to be doing the work. So really…am I asking so much of him to just do his share???
Same as the woman, equally!

One of the most consistent drains on our energy and our enthusiasm is to live in a world where kids are constantly arguing. They argue about bedtime. They argue about eating their vegetables. They argue about homework. They argue about which show to watch. They argue about who owns what toy. They argue about whether it is going to rain or not. They argue about whether it is too cold for gloves.
Sometimes, as children get older, many of us might be inclined to see these arguments as signs of good negotiators or attorneys. Don’t be fooled!
Such Arguing Children Do Not Become Good Negotiators or Attorneys.
Children who are constantly negotiating and arguing over every daily responsibility or necessity learn to waste much of their life energy and ability on useless arguments. You see their time is wasted arguing sometimes for hours over a task that would take them ten minutes.
They become ‘conditioned’ to invest themselves in these worthless arguments, and over time, you see their energy and attention evaporate from those tasks that are more important. If not careful, some of these same children learn to argue with teachers, peers, and coaches in the same manner.
These Children Argue in Ways That Empower False Thinking.
This is what is really dangerous. When children grow up arguing over every little thing, they come to believe that their faulty arguments are worthy of attention and validation.
When kids are arguing over bedtime, it is as if they believe that they know what is best for them — when it comes to bedtime. This is not true. Parents know better.
When children argue about whether or not they should do their homework, they think they know best about homework. They do not. Parents know best.
When kids argue over whether they should eat their vegetables or not, the argument empowers the belief that they should not eat vegetables. Kids do not know best about which food is good for them. Parents do.
If not careful, you will find them arguing as if they know best about absolutely everything. As they move into middle school or adolescent years, you will see that the negotiator has now decided that they truly know more about everything! And…they are willing to tell you about it!
Over and over again, most of the arguments that are driving you crazy have no basis in a valid or meaningful position. While the argument itself is enough to drive you crazy, it is important to realize that these arguments present more risk to your child’s future than it appears. They are not learning to become good attorneys; they are learning to believe arguments that will only waste their life and time.
Stop It Now…While You Can. You have the power to turn off these arguments in your home.
The Secret to Ending All Worthless Arguments and Negotiations
I have always found this to be true: Children never argue with parents who don’t argue with them. It’s that simple.
Your children will only argue if you are willing to stay in the ring with them. So step out of the argument. Not after trying to have the last word, but as soon as the argument begins. Just step out of it. Don’t explain it. Don’t try to get them to understand or agree. Just don’t argue.
When your children say, I don’t want to do my homework…don’t argue. When they say they don’t want to go to bed, or eat their veggies, or take out the trash…don’t argue. When you say no, and they want to argue…just don’t do it.
Hold your ground with your decision, but DO NOT argue about it. (Remember: you never win anyway…and it usually just ends ugly!) So stop it now…while you can.
When you do so, the wise choice to NOT argue will require you to learn how to manage your children’s behavior using your action—not your words. I encourage you to invest in gaining the parenting tools that support your strength as a parent, rather than continuing in these worthless arguments wasting your time and theirs.

Do Aries, Libras, and Sagittarius Sign People Make Good Parents?
Aries usually have fiery tempers, can be stubborn, only their opinions matter, blunt, violent, and selfish most of the time – Can this affect their parenting skills?
Libras usually are indecisive, lazy, shallow, don’t like confrontations, perfectionists and emotionally-cold – Can this affect their parenting skills?
Sanitarians usually are irresponsible, wasteful, says things without thinking who it could hurt, always all over the place-they worship their freedom – Can this affect their parenting skills?
And of course all the other signs have flaws as well, But I just want to mainly focus on these 3 right now because I know people of these 3 signs that I am close to… So if your parent happens to be one of these signs (and yes you love them lol) But still, what do you think about them as a parent to you?
My Mom is an Aries – She can have an ‘all about me’ attitude sometimes, but she is a wonderful mother. She was great to me when I was a little kid. We had normal mother/daughter conflicts when I was a teenager, and now we’re best friends.
Libras – I don’t know many, but my favorite cousin is a Libra. There have been times when she’s been indecisive and avoided confrontations, but she loves kids and is sad that she’s not a mother yet.
Sagittarians – I am one. I also love kids, but sometimes I wonder if I’d be a good parent. I would certainly try to be, but honestly, I’m flighty, I do love my freedom, and I’m very independent. Babies, although they’re adorable, make me nervous. I think I’d be a good step-mom to kids that were out of the toddler stage.

Discipline is one area I lag behind, I don’t know why it is so hard for me. The only way I can get kids to behave is to say “Wait till your father gets home!” & that doesn’t always work. I thought if only I could get my kids to behave, I can have time for more fun activities with them! Instead of being exasperated with my kids, I could enjoy my kids more. So when my son’s teacher sent me this flyer for a presentation for parents on how to discipline kids, I jumped at the opportunity to attend.
The class was called 1-2-3 magic. Initially when I heard about it, I was very skeptical. It was too simple & I thought “No way is this going to work for Noah”, but I came home & decided to put it into practise & true to the words, it worked like magic. It’s a very simple technique, yet very effective. Here is how it works. Whenever Noah is misbehaving(for eg. bugging his sister, yelling for no reason, generally doing something which he shouldn’t) I don’t get upset, I don’t scold him, instead I tell him in a very calm voice “That’s one” if he repeats it, I say “That’s two” and if he doesn’t stop, “Ok, that’s three” and I send him to his room for 4 minutes(since he is 4 years old). Likewise it’s 2 mins for 2 years, 3 for years & so forth. This technique works for kids from 2 to 12 years. The key is to not lose your temper. The key is to be totally calm. The key is to carry out what you’re saying you will do. After he comes back, I don’t lecture, I don’t ask for an apology, nothing, just get back to playing or whatever he wants to do. Of course when the situation is extreme, like when one kid is hitting the other, I wouldn’t suggest you stand around and count. Just start the time-out right away. Plus 5 minutes of extra time-out for really bad behaviour.
I strictly believe in NOT spanking kids EVER. I hated being spanked as kid(by parents & teachers as well). I have been there & I knew it was wrong then as sure as I know it now. I try to find the best ways to discipline kids without resorting to any kind of physical harm. My kids might forgive me, but I know that I won’t be able to.
I started practising this a month ago & I’ve sent Noah to his room maybe a 4-5 times, not more. I want to tell all parents out there to start using this technique. You have the power, do use it in a positive manner! Good luck! If I’ve convinced even one parent to use this technique, I will be most happy!

how would you define parenting skills?
who do you think have better parenting skills, older adults of young adults?
Problem: What Is the Effect of age on parenting skills?
Q1: Are older adults more understanding towards their kids?
Q2: Are older adults stricter than younger adults in disciplining their child?
Q3: does being an older parent increase the knowledge of a child?
I don’t think age has anything to do with how good of a parent you are. And take me for example. I didn’t have my lo until I was in my 40s. Rachel C is wrong to judge parents by age. I have a very well behaved 4 yo. And she doesn’t throw fits. And has very good manners. It depends on the person how good of a parent they want to be.
