Doctors and moms: Speaking different languages
Fri Aug 17, 2012
I had an ER doctor tell me my sons symptoms were from dehydration. He was dizzy, upset stomach, and passed out. I begged them to check his urine because he kept reporting to me that it was completely clear (he was 13, so I wasn't in the bathroom with him.) She just kept ignoring me and wanted to giv …
A boy has left, a man will return: Devising a modern rite of passage
Tue Aug 7, 2012
I agree and did just that...let my 14 year old son not do his HW after arguing with him every night. He failed the class and now has to take it over. He had actually been ahead one year in that subject and decided to be lazy. Now he's paying for it. The teacher called me, told me to get him a tutor. …
Obama proposes $1 billion math and science teaching corps

Knowing how to read and write properly is just as important as math and science.
How to handle a bad charge on a medical bill
Tue Jul 3, 2012
OBXRon-people make mistakes. A blanket accusation over something like this is ridiculous. Doctor's have terrible handwriting and medical coders are often left to decifer what is actually on the paper. If they code it wrong, or make a typo when entering the code, things can be rejected. If you think …
Is obesity a disease? Doctors disagree
Thu Jun 28, 2012
Ohiodeb, there are professionals for this, see a nutritionist. They can help you formulate a weekly diet plan to help you. Most people hear the word diet and think its a dirty word but diet really is a word for what you eat. The key is not always how much you eat but often what you are eating. My hu …
Jayden, Jasper or Jumanji: What your child's name says about you
Thu Jul 5, 2012
Just J, I have a similar problem. My mother named me Traci-Anne but, when I got my license, DMV told me they couldn't put the hyphen in. So I started using Tracianne and now get very exotic sounds when people try to say it. I even had a nurse at the dr. office tell me that my pronunciation does not …
A few drinks during pregnancy may be OK, study suggests
Wed Jun 20, 2012
I don't get the 8 drinks per week thing. To me, if you are drinking 8 drinks per week or more, then there's a problem. That's more than a glass of wine with dinner every night. Who NEEDS to drink that much, pregnant or not?
'Not a sporting event': Excessive cheering hogs spotlight at high school graduations
Fri Jun 8, 2012
It isn't a CELEBRATION but a CEREMONY! Yes, clapping and cheering is okay but AT THE END! No child up there should have their name drowned out by a screaming, jumping person carrying on as if the world were ending. The celebration is the party afterward. It seems that the people on here who advocate …
Digital Afterlife: What happens to your online accounts when you die?
Fri Jun 1, 2012
It's not just HIS thoughts they would be reading but the thoughts of anyone he communicated with on Facebook. Those LIVING people are entitled to their privacy and it should not be trampled on so these parents can figure out why their son committed suicide, which is unlikely anyway.
Changing banks is an even bigger pain in the neck
Thu May 31, 2012
Just so you know, BOA's policy is keep re-opening accounts if a direct deposit comes in...I had to deal with this when I closed their account after switching. Despite telling me otherwise, child support enforcement kept using BOA, even though they confirmed the new bank info when I called. So I had …
