    I'm just wondering if its as bad in your area as it is here to try and find a summer job. My dd has 1 more semester of college and desperately needs a summer job to help pay expenses. With gas prices so high she will have to find something local because she can't afford on minimum wage to drive...
  2. Question and Answer
    How much say did you have with picking colleges for your high school student? I am on my 4th child and looking for schools. Just wondering if you let the whole process up to your kid or did you do most of the picking and planning of schools. It is funny watching other families at these open...

    So what's your rule and how do you decide? My daughter is 17 and out with her boyfriend at a fancy Christmas party with his family with dancing and all that fun stuff. I let her go out all the time but I can't just say..hey...be back at 10 or 12. I just tell her to text me later and tell me...

    This seems to be a big issue not just for me, but for many people I've spoken with over the past couple weeks. What can I make my teen for the holidays? Truly it depends on the teen, their interests, preferences, hobbies and whatnot. But what are some generic, teen approved, gifts? I've made...

    Well I know all families and kids are different, so no judgements. When I was sixteen I worked and my dad co-signed for me to get the car and I made the payments every month and was very responsible and payed it off. (I would never co-sign for anyone. :P) My daughter is doing great with her...

  10. Education
    I'm seriously thinking of bringing my 14 year old son home to school. I'm a bit fed up our public school and have had more headaches in the last few years than I ever did with my oldest who will be graduating from college next year. Anyway........I've never done this before and am just looking...

So we pushed it to the side of the road. I can't believe I guessed what was wrong with it. After living with this handyman for 35...
