This TRULY bothers me. When onefromphilly was there she said they were comfortable saying "What's up my n'word" to them. That is just like...whoa...disheartening.

And that's exactly what I was trying to figure out. Like...we can be outraged and disappointed but are we actively involved in affecting this? Even if it is with one person at a time. It just gets to be too much it seems so you tend to only deal with "me and mine." And that's obviously not enough so yeah...what else we got?

I was raised hearing "don't shame me" so much that I still hear it in my ears.

In our area, there really aren't lots of places that hire under age 18 and the places that do hire kids they know it seems.

Oh...the writing is definitely therapy for me. I can't tell you how much so. Most of it is too dark to share though.

As an abuse survivor I find I have cycles and I just have to figure out how to ride them out. I've recently heard some stories of abuse which make mine seem like nothing even knowing I still have serious scars that I need to deal with directly from time to time. The secret to remaining healthy, in my opinion, is to not hide from it. I'm always shocked at just how many people have been abused and it helped me, long ago, to know I wasn't alone. I think it's important for people to see that you can go through something like this and come out on the other side but it doesn't mean you still don't get over it completely and that's a healthy reaction.

You're welcome. You know I don't hide from it...it's just that sometimes it gets to be soooooo heavy.

But that's one really big ONLY.

You know I flat out agree with that but I'm wondering if there is a line there that is getting smudged. The good kids don't always have money but the kid into goodness knows what might have a pocket full of hunnerts. If I had a daughter I'm sure I'd be more inclined to her dating the good kid without money than the kid with the hunnerts knowing his parents aren't wealthy.

Your not supporting them doesn't mean it's not affecting you. What next?

You know...that's a good point that I never really thought about. My Elder is probably your father's age or older and he is very clear with his opinions on this too. I mean, I have direct, immediate relatives who make me snatch them whenever I'm around for behavior that is normal to them. I am constantly referred to as the one who is "tripping" same as my mother was. She was always "tripping" and a prude to her generation. Interesting thought.

But what if it's a good kid who doesn't have the money or who is saving his money to help with college or something? They shouldn't date because he can't afford to pay for the dates?
1 reply
Yup. I agree with pretty much all of this.

I like this. Offer up something you can help out with too. If the kid buys the tickets, go half on the snacks maybe?

But the economy IS bad. Inflation is like a racehorse. And if you have kids...hell...you actually might not have extra money.

But what if the girl wanted to go to the movies? Then she'll be called a gold digger if she wanted to go to the movies instead of the free concert.

That's a good question but it can't get worse than it seems to be now. I mean...I know so many single people and, for the life of me, I can't understand why they are all single. Not just single women...single guys too. Why don't folks want to have a partner anymore?
