    I meant pub, not pup.

    Was the 9YO's friend smart enough to ask to come to your house where they knew they'd be safe & supervised or did you just "twig" that you were the O/N baby sitter ?

    No, sons friend was smart enough to ask son what he should do. My son said, no worries, my mum will fix it. He's a nice kid, Lynne, but his family is rough as guts. I don't have anything to do with them as they are just so gross in my opinion. Sone doesn't like going to their house as it's literally a pig-sty, so kid comes here all the time, which is okay with me.

    On a good note, he is saying please and thank you now, which makes me smile.

    No one knows what they are going to be like in the future - regardless what the arrogance of youth tells you! I was just the same I tell you!

    You're a good egg DA & have obviously raised your son with a good sense of morals & values. This young fellow will be looking for some direction & I'm glad you're there as a "safety net" for him. If he makes it into young adulthood without screwing up, he'll have you to thank & I'll bet he'll never forget you either.

    I do think it's important to discuss children in your twenties if it's a serious relationship- Better to end it now than ten years down the tracks with a broken heart, right?

    I'm not sure it's a case of ending it, though.

    What Occy is saying is also very correct. What we think at 20 is VERY different from what we think at 30 or 40 or 50. So many things happen, sometimes just one big thing happens that changes us and our lives forever.

    I do however think it is VERY wise and prudent for Liza to discuss this at length with her partner. If he is so adamant at this age about having children in the future, I would be concerned too if I felt like Liza does. Her opinions at this stage appear to be very firm, and they may stay that way, who knows.

    What I HATE seeing is one partner who wants kids, one doesn't, and they stay together because one partner thinks they can change the mind of the other. That is very bad IMO, and leads to nothing but heartache.

    TBH, I think this little fellow is beginning to feel very confused with the dawning knowledge that not all families live like his does. *sad face*

    Thats terrible.
    On a quick note, we have neighbours who arent very good people. The woman has something wrong with her... I don't know. I think its anger management or something like that. She has two kids - a ten yr old and a 1-2yr old.
    The ten year old is a sweet kid - havent met him too many times (since they live over the fence ) but he seems nice.
    The mother is constantly abusing him. If someone gave me 5c every time I hear her shout at him, hit him etc. I will be richer than Bill Gates. The father does nothing. She wears the pants in the relationship. The mother also sometimes yells at the baby - not as often as at the ten yr old though. Everyday, I hear her scream at her ten yr old, hit him, and it breaks my heart. I want to do something, but what can I?
    DA I think its very kind of you to 'take him in' or something along those lines, give him a loving home outside his home.
