And if they are the obnoxious kind of bossy, the kind that doesn’t make a good leader, then they need know that and be taught a better way to be a leader.
And yes, Dagny FTW! I have such a crush on her as a strong female character.
But, again, you can never be certain your spouse isn’t lying to you.
Then you clearly don’t know your spouse well enough. That’s the risk you take when you marry someone without getting to know them first, which is a small minority compared to the amount of wed couples who do not lie or hold secrets about their sex life and health.
Getting married doesn’t reduce or increase chances of any of the outcomes that can result from sex out of wedlock
If you both wait till marriage to have sex, then it most certainly kills the chance for any diseases.
I’m not sure why people have such difficulty understanding such a simple concept. It’s common sense.
If two individuals wait until they are married to have sex, and they are faithful to each other (which is why they got married in the first place, right?) their chances of contracting sexually transmitted diseases are reduced to virtually nothing.
If you can’t trust your spouse to not cheat on you then you clearly married the wrong person and you have a shit relationship, sorry not sorry.
this guy is systematically undoing the world

Exactly, it’s a learning experience. If you are being bossy, you need to be told that so you can see your flaws and learn a better way to be a good leader.
Sometimes I wonder about “my kids” you know? I moved away from Arkansas years ago…I hope they have had good lives. Some of them I know are going to end up in Juvie…if they haven’t already. Some kids you can’t do much for…
The little ones probably don’t remember me.
One time I gave the grandmother of Kayla, who I babysat for, a royal tongue lashing because Kayla wasn’t really verbally developing at the right speed for her age. I found out that she parked her in front of Cartoon Network for 8 hours a day most days. OF COURSE she wasn’t verbally developing. I used to read to her in the nursery at church every Sunday, instead of putting on Veggie Tales.
Ah, someone who knows nothing about how many children I’ve had a hand in helping raise trying to tell me what I know about raising children, how very cool of you.
Look, I was basically a 3rd parent to my younger sister.
I was the most responsible person in my house for 10 hours a day when I was 14 years old and my parents were at work and my sister and I were homeschooled. I ran children’s church and worked in the nursery, I was more of a parent to some of the children at our church when I was in JUNIOR HIGH than they had at home.
I bandaged more scraped knees, broke up more fights, kissed more boo boos, and worried about more kids in my 23 years than most people will their WHOLE LIVES.
Have I given birth? No.
Does that mean I know less than you or anyone else about parenting and how to deal with children? Also no.
Besides that, I had a pretty damn good example of parenting from my own parents. They did a damn good job on me and my sister and, while I wouldn’t do everything the same way they did, I have learned a lot from them.
If your child is a Napoleonic little tyrant then they need to hear it and you need to put a stop to it.
If your kid is an obnoxious bossy little twerp A.) You probably screwed up somewhere and B.) they probably need to hear it.
If your kid has been raised to be an assertive leader and knows how to defend themselves A.) you’ve done a good job and B.) they won’t care if someone calls them bossy, because why should they care what some random idiot says to them?
Even if that IS the case, they are A.) using the word “ban” which is not the same as “discourage” and B.) They are still creating a situation that tells children that people’s opinion of them is more important then their own strengths and abilities.
This only validates the other person’s opinion and makes it harder for children (and adults) to learn to cope with negative commentary toward them, whether it’s true or not.
The world isn’t always a nice place, you can’t expect everyone to have shining glowing opinions of you. If you grow up thinking that you’ll have no adversity or have no one criticizing you, because your parent’s or some stupid feminist spent all their time shielding you from negativity, you will be in for some harsh and emotionally crippling surprises in the future.
I learned at a young age to start saying, essentially, “fuck it, you’re opinion means nothing to me” (especially when it came to kids my own age) but that would not have happened if people had kept all criticisms or negative comments from reaching my ears.
My parents taught me to stick up for myself and I turned out pretty great. Teach your kids to assert themselves and be good leaders and if someone calls them bossy they won’t give a rat’s ass. (unless they are bossy, don’t raise arrogant bossy kids, those are a pain).
People need to learn to stop putting so much stock in what other people think of them.
This does the exact opposite. This tells children “what other people think of you is SO IMPORTANT that we must police it and tell them what they can and cannot say in order to protect your feelings.”
I can’t remember what the word was, but a kid called me something nasty in elementary school at recess. I went home crying, my mom asked me what had happened and I told her what the kid called me. She said “well is it true, are you stupid/bossy/ugly?” whatever it was. I said no and she told me that their opinion was crap then and they didn’t know what they were talking about.
I never took any of their insults to heart after that.
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I don’t mind being lectured by Ron about the Fourth Amendment and privacy because I respect Ron. I don’t want to be lectured by a traitor who speaks from a land that doesn’t have a constitution, or had one and it was entirely eviscerated by a thug who has just invaded another land. It’s a travesty and the packaging of this with the U.S. Constitution behind him. He fled a land with that constitution in which, in the FISA courts and elsewhere, we try really hard to balance the requirements of the Constitution — the privacy requirements — and the obligation the government has of protection. The reason the FISA courts are in secret isn’t that we want to hide the process. We want to hide who we’re going after and why and what’s behind it because otherwise, you aren’t able to ferret out and prevent this kind of terrorism. You know, and the reason that everybody lauds Snowden, or the ones who do, is because of his revelations on privacy. But that is a fraction of the revelations he has done, which have to do with secrets. The military intelligent secrets of the United States, which he has undoubtedly given the Russians which in and of itself is an act of treason and probably the Chinese as well. So, yes, we should have a debate, even lectures on the Constitution. But that’s the wrong guy to give it and he doesn’t deserve the airing. I wouldn’t ban airing him under the First Amendment but Americans on their own ought to shun a man like that.
Sing to me Charles, sing to me.
If someone spends their life getting told how great/smart/talented/infallible they are, you get Barack Obama.
So I agree completely.
