» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:30 -- "I want my kids to learn trough trial and error" Cool
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 09:28 -- It is when you live around here and being on the permissive side makes everyone else think you're a shitty parent
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:28 -- And probably all feel the same about the later
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:28 -- the first doesn't seem like a bad thing
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 09:22 -- I'm too permissive and I don't take enough of an interest in them.
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:21 -- you're excellent
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:21 -- you are not a horrible parent, EA
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:20 -- after I have filed half of the checklist of things I want to do before I die
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:20 -- I want to have 2 kids
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 09:19 -- Yeah, don't have kids. It's a horrible gig. I feel like a bad parent roughly 99% of the time.
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:19 -- excellent
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 09:18 -- For the most part, yeah, LV. She's been perfectly nice to Revs whenever she's come over to the house. And he is always nice and polite to her.

» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:15 -- so, did your mom stop being an asshole?
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:12 -- and hope they apply it to everything, including religion
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:12 -- critical thinking skills
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:12 -- what I would do is teach the kids
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 09:10 -- That's okay Smile
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 09:07 -- sorry for afk
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 08:50 -- am busy preparing food
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 08:46 -- you can pull trough it, EA
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 08:46 -- that's why I want to lifeon a small island with only me
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 08:45 -- I just want to go home right now, is all.
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 08:45 -- I get tired of hurting people and I get tired of people hurting me. The solution is less people. The best solution would be to reach a point where I don't have a need for other people at all. A magical place where one has no need for social interaction. But I don't believe that is possible.
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 08:44 -- I don't have advice
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 08:42 -- And I'm just kind of peopled out at the moment - I need to start culling people from my life. Too many feelings to keep up with and worry about. Not worth the hassle.
» Metazoa Zeke - 15-11-11 08:39 -- Well i can see why, i don't debate my grandmother on religion.
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 08:39 -- Fumbled all over my words. No wonder she thinks I haven't thought about it properly. I sounded like a complete dolt when I told her my reasons for not believing.
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 08:38 -- I don't like debate - I hate conflict. Even just telling my daughter that I don't believe in god was not a good experience. Confused
» Metazoa Zeke - 15-11-11 08:37 -- I would debate my kid
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 08:36 -- I thought I would be more open to talking about it with them, but nope Sleepy
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 08:35 -- It's very annoying. Apparently people think I am stupid.
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 08:31 -- Hey EA
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 08:31 -- "mom, I can see you haven't given the issue enough thought yet"
» Lightvader - 15-11-11 08:31 -- hahaha
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 08:24 -- If it becomes an issue, I'm going to ban the topic. I don't want to discuss it. Not even with them.
» Escape Artist - 15-11-11 08:24 -- Well my kids know that I don't believe in god now and my oldest is trying to convince me that I just haven't thought about all this enough. Facepalm
» Reltzik - 15-11-11 00:53 -- *grump* Weighing the idea of quitting the forums entirely.
» Reltzik - 15-11-11 00:48 -- ...... this is another Mom thing, I take it. I'm told that when you're a parent the two most scary things are sudden bursts of noise and sudden outbreaks of silence.
