    Hey ya'll! Today on my channel we are reacting to some insane questions people actually had the AUDACITY to ask quora. Some things are better kept off the internet.

    The parents asking these questions about teens need to seek out some parenting for healthy kids workshops & other resources. As a retired high school teacher, my heart breaks for the girl w/o a door, the shaking 15-y-o, and any kid who is not accepted and loved for who they are.

      @Super_squishy_awesomeness _ That is so sad. We were entrusted with the parents' most valuable little person in the world. We did our best to teach well, and in a positive and fun way. My late husband's obituary in our local paper had dozens of heartfelt comments from former students and their families. He loved his career so much. He and I are both proud of our students.

      @Super_squishy_awesomeness _ Please, privacy is valuable. My husband never came in the bathroom when I was showering, etc. We didn't play music loudly, talk on the phone at length, have our rooms messy or dirty. We also did not eat in our room! Our children were raised with courtesy and no drama. And our grandchildren, the same. We're teachers, and a religious and cultured family. And so proud of our students, also. One of our joys in life was meeting their children!

      Much respect and glad it worked out the way you thought it would.

    Cats are "obligate carnivores" - in other words, they NEED a meat diet, feeding cats a vegan diet is abusive. BTW - I'm vegan myself, but I do understand about the needs of my cat and would never dream of forcing a duet on him that would cause him damage.

      @arandomsanti imo using meat that otherwise would be thrown away definitely helps more than forcing veganism onto pets or friends. Overproduction and wasteful behaviour are the biggest problem for our environment and if you're vegan because you don't want animals to die you sure don't want them to die for ending up in a trashcan.

      It's an absolute biiish. I also trying my hardest to eat vegan but I hav a dog so I cant technically call myself vegan and I feel like I'm counter productive . But the other choice was that the dog goes to the kill shelter. I've got a small work around however . Get free bones from the butcher's wife , but discounted meats and hunted meat from the fresh counter late at the evening before closing . They would only throw that meat away otherwise...

      @Debbie Akano yea if we’re talking about the law in most cases he would be forced to continue paying her alimony while she goes off with the guy. As he mentioned in the reply, he was able to get away with no loss of income.
      Not saying what he did was right but I think divorce laws are fucked up enough that I don’t really blame him for doing something drastic.

    The guy who pricked holes into all those condoms...apart from being despicable could actually be against the law.

    I got the answer for that mother who asked how she can raise a "better" son, slap yourself in the face and grow up.
    Speaking in public has nothing to do with him being a good son. On top of that he was 15 and speaking at his grandma's

      Actually, the persons who had very strict parents on the subject of sexuality (who were never taught anything and couldn't discover their own body because no door ect) are the persons who fall the more easily in abusive relationships or are pregnant/baby dady early because if you don't know anything you don't know what is sane and safe for you.

    7:36 I'm a mom and a grandma. I can't imagine interfering with my child's choices; as long as they weren't harming themselves. It boggles my mind that parents don't treat their children as individuals! As far as "wanting grandchildren "; yes I did but that was up to them... not me. As long as they were happy, healthy that's all I wanted for them.

    • Monique Damphousse

      I always insisted that our daughter be treated like an adult from the day she turned 18. My husband, who is from a very large country-raised family with old fashioned values, struggled for a while with this concept, but eventually he wrapped his head around it. 😊 We're still there for her to give advice when asked and needed, but we never tell her what to do. The way I finally got my husband to understand this was when I asked him how he would like it if his parent would be telling him what to do when he was her age. It didn't take him long to say that he wouldn't have liked it. 😂😂😂

    The one where the husband sabotaged the wife's condoms. It's pretty messed up to bring a baby into all this and make the baby suffer potentially. Two wrongs don't make a right.

  • Paul
    Paul Il y a mois +8

    The sabotaged condoms could leave him at fault for the pregnancy. It was definitely a malicious act to cause her potential harm. I would argue that even the guy she was having sex with could sue for financial damages if he was made to pay child support if the truth ever came to light. But I question the validity of the story. Do women carry condoms in their purses? But maybe the other guy was also married and his wife would have been more likely to find them so she held onto them.

      Just like many people commenting here, in my country there's a list of names (an enormous list, it has hundreds, if not thousands, of names) allowed, and people can't invent names, or name children after things, or animals, or whatever. However, if one of the parents is a foreigner, any name is allowed. That's why there are two unfortunate girls, daughters of a portuguese (trashy) singer and a soccer player from Guiné-Bissau (former portuguese colony) whose names are Lyonce Viiktórya and Lyannii Viiktórya.

    My first question to this parent would be, "Are you the dad or mom?"
    This is obviously wrong on so many levels, but if this is the father it raises so many more issues for me.
    It genuinely worries me as there are definitely dad's out their that sexually abuse their children. Not to mention how some take the protective dad to a whole new level that becomes controlling.
    I have no idea if it's the mother or father, but I do know it sounds like something my own father would do.
    My dad and mom divorced when I was 8 months, and I was raised by my dad, along with my sister.
    My dad was incredibly controlling to just me. He treated me different because I resembled my mother, who he had a hatred/love for.
    Many times he treated me like I was her. My sister was 5 years older and as usual could do anything she wanted.
    I had an 8pm curfew to her 1am. I wasn't allowed to go on a paid spring break (with girlfriends), while she was allowed to go every year & with boys.
    I wasn't allowed to dress a certain way, have an ear piercing or belly. While she had her whole ears, her belly button, and tongue pierced.
    It was literal night and day between us. So I don't know which parent isn't allowing the door, but everyone deserves privacy.
    I knew a boy in school that his father took his door away as punishment, and his bed. He had to sleep on the floor with no door. He was supposed to get it back after he completed probation.
    But idk, this post just doesn't sit right with me. I hope the parent got a bunch of responses showing them how absurd they sound.
    Similar to AITA, I hope they get insight to how wrong their behavior is and maybe get some help to parenting teenagers.
    Sometimes I feel like they get a wake up call when others do not find this behavior normal or okay. While other times I feel like it doesn't make a bit of difference.
    Just crazy how people are. .

      @Lea Juliene I'm sorry, I didn't want you to relive all that. You said it's something your father would do, not your father did do, so it sounded more like prejudice to me. It's awful you and your family members went through all this. I hope things have gotten better.

      @JayLeeBeanz I never said a father would automatically have naughty thoughts based on gender. I just voiced a concern I had based on something I went through personally. I just didn't want to go into that detail of my life because it hurts.
      But I should have realized that this is a comment section, and I should be even more detailed in my responses and comments.
      Of course, mothers and women are capable of sexual abuse. Fathers are capable towards daughters and sons ect, and mothers are capable towards daughters and sons ect.
      The reason I said it worried me if it was a father was because of my personal experiences I went through with my father.
      & the experiences my mother went through with her father, and my grandmother with her father. As well as, some friends I grew up with and their fathers.
      When I went to a support group on sexual abuse there were many women there that told their own stories about their brothers, their uncles, their fathers ect.
      So I genuinely had a concern for that 16 year old girl not being allowed a door and the privacy she deserves. Whether that be changing clothes, sleeping, or just in general.
      So again, yes mothers and women can definitely abuse as well, but hopefully I have explained more in some detail without telling my whole childhood and life story.
      I am not sexist by any means. I fully know and understand that both sexes can be equally as horrible.

      You have some slight sexism going on though. Why would a male parent automatically have naughty thoughts just based on gender. In the healthiest scenario, it would never cross either parent's mind so neither would be worse. Furthermore mothers and women are fully capable of being sexually abusive too, so if there is reason to be concerned, it's not automatically because of the father and you should be equally concerned.

    I've been through a period where I want to be a grandma. And I know my son's have other obligations that they want to focus on right now although they're in their mid-20s one is seeking financial Independence at the moment which I'm very proud of him of by the way, before he even considers getting involved in a serious relationship and I do respect him for that that is some great planning. My other son however made it clear that he has no interest in having children and that if he gets married it is only going to be with a person who also does not want children in their future. It took a little bit for me to accept that. I felt he was just not emotionally prepared for parenting although he's 26 and that was why he said that. I did find out recently that he has a very strong belief in trying to maintain clean up and help our environment become what it once was and he feels that overpopulation has destroyed not only our environment but a lot of species that were here prior to us. He thought long and hard about this and I respect his decision he also says that his father and pay generations were extremely toxic narcissistic and misogynistic and he does not feel that the name should continue on and if he has to be the one to prevent the continuation of his specific name then so be it. The thought that he put into this actually made me realize how very mature my son actually is and how much thought he's put into this. I will say I can actually picture him being the type of adult that once he is married and in a relationship possibly fostering or even adopting unwanted children that are already here because you already has that interest in animals

      @Nina Cohen I'm sorry what? 45 years ago people only had one kid I'm confused I'm 45 years old and just about everybody I know that's my age has two to four other siblings My generation however did a lot to try to keep it to one or two children because we damn well couldn't afford it. And we could think that to greedy capitalist laws. When I was born it was all about college you had to go to college to be successful otherwise you would become a dirt digger or a trash man however they make more money than most people that went to college and graduated. But we are propagandized to believe that the only way you could succeed is if you have a job where you wear a suit and tie and have a college degree to match when that is not the case. My grandfather was born in the 1939 he had six children with my grandmother who was 15 at the time 3 years younger than my grandfather 4 years sorry. Now my mother was born in the 1958, she was raised in a household where only my grandfather who had only a high school education and worked in the mailroom for a automobile repair publishing company called Chilton. He made three something an hour, that matched with the cost of living of the times. Just like it did the generation prior when they were making maybe $1.50 an hour, who were my grandparents' parents. Both my great grandparents and my grandparents were able to raise large families with incomes that matched the cost of living and inflation of the times while the mother stayed home and took care of the household and raise the family. They were considered a middle-class family they lived a very comfortable lifestyle they did not have to wait in line for food they did not have to deal with some of the aftermath of the depression. Now granted my great-grandparents did a lot of raising of their own meats and vegetables so that helped with less spending. But I want to go back to my grandfather who made $3 in some odd cents an hour in a mail room raising a family of six children and a wife on his own in a beautiful six bedroom house and one of the richest parts of the county of the state that I live in. He never went to college he graduated high school went and got a job and started raising the family and he moved up in that company and by the time my mother was 13 years old my grandfather was making what would be considered six figures in today's society so in 1971 he was making about 23,000 a year as the executive assistant of a CFO. In today's money that would be about 160,000 a year. But see 23,000 a year is what over 60% of the incomes are of today's workers so they are making the same as somebody would in the 1970s as our inflation has exploded. And do you know why wages stopped following inflation because of Republican presidents that passed laws stating what the minimum wage of a worker should be instead of just allowing people to get paid with inflation they mandated a certain wage rate. Instead of the rate changing the few times it did to benefit every worker they made stipulations that they would change the minimum wage for only workers with a degree or federal workers or workers that are in hospitals or workers that have a certain certification. so people of today's society if we would have kept the laws as they were and people had wages that rose with inflation, as it used to be before Nixon decided that greed was more important. Nixon made sure to sign laws that made unequal wage rates for specific workers and that is when economic failure really started. Then Reagan boosted that when he gave corporations more power to build monopolies and shut down the mom and pops of our country so now you drive along route 66 and what do you say nothing but shut down old shops where it used to be a whole family trip of enjoyability. Republicans have been systematically destroying the middle class working family since the day they stepped into office. And the only way it could be fixed is if those policies that Nixon and Reagan put into place that stopped the equality of raises with our economy then America is going to continue to be a country of people that grow more and more poor, while the top 2% end up with 90% of all of US monies. This was a deliberate act to make sure that only certain societal groups are able to keep growing and if you notice the richest people in America don't do anything to help America in fact they do everything they can to make sure opposite occurs by having lobbyists pay these Republican senators to prevent them from voting for laws that will raise wages and fight for wage equity. Did you know minimum wage in America if it stayed on the same path would be over $21 an hour minimum wage. Which means people that are making $21 an hour should actually be making $56 an hour. Everybody in our society is making below what they should be and corporations are not floundering at all they're making hundreds of millions to close to a billion dollars a year. This was unheard of prior to the seventies only a couple people having that much money 2%, 2% of Americans have more money than all Americans put together. And you still want to tell me, the problem was 45 years ago people couldn't afford to have children? No 45 years ago was when our Republican president decided to make it a problem to financially afford to have children. But 45 years ago the my parents of that time did not know what was actually coming when that legislation was passed. They did not know they were going to lose their businesses they were going to lose their houses their pay would go up maybe 5 to10 CENTS each year. But thankfully our parents' children my generation got to learn about computers and history and how legislation works and how America ended up creating the poorest class of any country. Nixon knew what he was doing when he called for unionization to be stopped. There was nobody to help people fight for the wages that the working class People deserved. And then we have Ronald Reagan who sold his soul to corporations and created what we know today is trickle down economics you would think after over 30 years of it not working our government would realize that it's not working. Now why you think Peterson is somehow truthful with any of this I don't understand because he's against wage increases too but he's not against growing a population that can't even afford to take care of itself let alone the children that they bear. I'm glad that gen Z's are fighting for unions fighting with millennials to get the money that is due to them. Ending unionization was the worst thing that ever occurred an our American economy. That is why there is a need for progressives to be in office and we need to get rid of Republican and moderate Democrats because we're never going to have the the financial equity that we deserve as a society. This was deliberately done to keep immigrants minorities those who are looked at as lesser than in need of some kind of assistance by government because that keeps them in power and these governments with false promises and fear-mongering and they do this to the white people because of the population of white people to minorities and immigrants they know more white people are going to vote Republican so they fear monger the white people. So if you really want America to become an actual democracy that's when you need to stop voting Republican that's when you need to stop listening to people like Peterson! He who knows the Murdoch Brothers have over 300 different media companies all over the world that do nothing but push out propaganda half of those are in the United States alone whether it's television streaming or through FRclip Facebook Twitter etc many of the right wing news media you read are owned by the Murdoch Brothers who own Fox News News Max oan sky News in Australia. They want to manipulate with this information and fear monger so that they could keep these corporations growing so they can gain more and more control but they blame the Democrats to confuse people. All you have to do is look at the legislation that's passed the legislation that's passed is anti-freedom legislation. Anti-abortion laws, don't say gay laws, don't discuss history that makes white people look bad, don't have books even cartoon books that have any discussion of a non-heterosexual family. They make laws where parents can sue teachers because they don't tell a third grader to shut up if they discuss a vacation with their parents who might be gay. They're even making legislation where you have to include Jesus and Christianity when our constitution clearly states that there must be a separation of state and Church. But what do we get if a parent finds out a teacher allows a Muslim student to not talk about Jesus but instead talks about Allah they can be sued and lose their ability to teach how is that fair how is that protecting rights how is that protecting our constitution. Take a moment to think about all that for a minute while I go take a piss then start my family's dinner for the night.

      The world has moved on. Every 20 years there's a new generation (X. Millennials. Xe-lenials? Generation Z...) 45 years ago people maybe..had 1 kid. Their kids got clobbered financially and couldn't afford housing, or marriage, or kids. Their barely existing kids didn't get married till their 40s. The population explosion is one of old people, not young people. Villages/small town in Italy and Western Europe are empty, houses cost a dollar there. Japan has a dearth of working people and a surplus of the aged. In China, the young people are on strike, refusing to work 24/7, refusing to marry, and the 1 child policy equalled 1 son policy, and without potential wives, they resort to kidnapping other Asian women and/or go to war (almost inevitable: all that free-floating frustrated testosterone...), again, zero children being born in China. All over the world, there is a crisis of de-population. Moving populations around is unsuccessful when 'orders' come from the top down. Unstable societies that don't give women equal rights are also imploding: the era of dictatorships won't work in this world that has internet/free flow of ideas, despite attempts at repression. We have come full circle, and now 'responsible living' for 20-30 somethings in 2020s + is looking like the 'responsible living' of the 1940's::Get married, raise a family, become selfless again. You know the road to perdition is paved with good intentions, right. And I don't want to mention fertility rates are plummetting from pollution from plastics, obesity, etc. But that's just my opinion. And Jordan Peterson. And others, too.

I didn't tell her when I had cancer because I didn't want her coming to the hospital and making it all about how SHE has a daughter with cancer. Needless to say, my hospital stay went well because she wasn't there. My husband and our daughter were enough to help me through and they were all I wanted and needed ❤I think my mother may be a sociopath. She's always been so physically cruel to me, emotionally cruel and manipulative, crushing and actually enjoys tearing me down. I no longer have any love for that woman. I don't hate her, but I feel completely indifferent towards her now. I don't believe that she deserves my love at all, so she's not ever going to get it.

      It amazes me that as women we are still treated this way in this day & age. I have a lot of health (& mental health issues in part caused by an abusive mother), & made a choice at the age of 16 not to have biological children because I did not want to pass those genetic issues on to my children. I am adopted, & told my parents that there were plenty of children in the world that needed love, & that I planned on fostering children & perhaps adopting myself when I got older. Nonetheless, I will never forget on Easter Sunday when I was 27 my mother telling my brother's girlfriend at the time that I was too old & she was giving up on me, & it was up to my brother & his girlfriend to give her grandchildren. She then proceeded (for the rest of the time she was alive) to tell me how I would be unable to care for an animal (I then adopted a pit bull rescue & registered her as an ESA with my state & trained her to get her Canine Good Citizen's Award & further trained her & registered her with the state as a Therapy Animal), & that I was incapable of properly raising a child--CPS/the courts then gave me custody of my neighbor's autistic child to raise. Not once did my mother ever acknowledge that she was incorrect or ever display pride in me, & now that she has passed away, all I have are those negative memories. I can truly say that being told at the age of 27 that my mother was giving up on my giving her grandchildren because I was too old (despite my legitimate reasons to choose fostering & adoption over having biological children, & both myself & my brother being adopted ourselves!) is still one of the most hurtful memories I have of my mother. You are correct; being pressured to have a child is a truly horrible feeling, & it certainly didn't help the already unhealthy relationship that I had with my mother! I found my mother's diaries after she passed away, & she wrote about how adopted children were supposed to be a "gift from God" but she felt like God gave her a "gag gift" with me, & she wished she could "give [me] back." Like you said, what I wouldn't give to have had a mother who "laid off" of me & who was simply thankful for me & not so worried about my giving her biological grandchildren! I am now 42, & due to health issues cannot have biological children. Perhaps it is best that she passed away while I was still in my late 30s so that I couldn't embarrass her further by not being physically capable of giving her the biological grandchildren I was apparently supposed to give her (even though according to her I would have been unable to parent them properly anyway).
      WOW, I think I might've just been triggered!!! LOL Talk about TMI! I can only hope that someone sees my over-share here & feels less alone in their own situation. Much love to my fellow Tater Tots who have/had mothers like mine. You are enough, and you are worthy, all on your own! Not having children does not lessen your own worth! 💙

    With the TikTok one, it depends on the age of the child and what they have access too. If the child is under 13, isn't being monitored and has access to TikTok, it is technically a form of neglect. If they're over 13, they should still be monitored and age resrictions applied.

      @jennifer d Lovely story. We are at 5 generations atm, my G/Dad is 88.. 89 in a couple of months time and the eldest in the family. He tells us not to wish to live forever. My Nan wanted to pass young, she did at 27 years old and my G/Dad wanted to outlive everyone, he often tells us it's a curse. They were together for 9 years and he never dated or remarried, just raised his children and that was back in the 1960s when men were expected to remarry or put the children in care. With his dementia we get to hear tales we haven't heard before. When he does pass, I will see the happy side. I'm not religious, but he is and he believes he will be with my Nan. Can't be sad at that though, he's already waited 55 years.

    I was a grown assed adult, and I shook like a leaf when reading a poem at my grandfather's funeral. Some people aren't good at public speaking. It sounds like the question should be, what can this kid do to have a less crappie parent?

      Exactly 💯
      I'm sorry for your loss and completely empathize. Then mom asks internet how to make her son BETTER.
      It's a mind f***, there forever.
      I wrote a comment on this video directly to that mother.
      I hope she 👀, whether she appreciates or takes advice will depend on the size of her ego.
      I tried to be respectful as possible.
      What a crazy time we live in.

      Lost my mom at 33. Couldn’t bear going up to read or say anything. My brother did the eulogy. Sisters and I said nothing. My uncle’s funeral, all his grandkids spoke. And they’re about 15-22 years old. They really did a lovely job. Some of us aren’t capable. So I admire that boy who went up. Even if he shook. Very sweet and brave of him.

      I've been to many funerals, but my granny really wanted me to play flute at my gramps' funeral. I practiced many times. By the end, I was kinda shaking, and then was crying. Breathing got shaky, notes fluttery, I was in tears by the time I was done. Said I was sorry, got a hug and "you did good". Losing people we love is hard, being in public is hard, performing is hard... Of all the places to demonstrate emotion, I'd think a funeral is one of the more acceptable ones. *hugs* You did good!

    "Even though the genetic susceptibility plays a crucial role on the IQ of the individual, various modifiable environmental factors like education, premature birth, nutrition, pollution, drug and alcohol abuse, mental illnesses, and diseases can have an influence on an individual's IQ."
    Maybe you haven't seen any political manipulation and history revisionism on TikTok that has been a trend here in our country right now especially because majority of our students haven't been back to the classrooms since the start of the pandemic, but yeah it can happen. Gradual maybe but if young minds are being fed wrong information everyday, it could affect critical thinking at some point.

    • Victoria Ferguson

      this, exactly this. regardless of genetics, the abilities to learn and think critically, and to WANT to obtain those skills, seem to be the two BIGGEST factors of intelligence. theres a genetic cap, sure, but a lot of it has way more to do with environment and attitude, ESPECIALLY when we're kids. sad thing is, this stuff isnt taught until college level psych, and unless youre willing and wanting to do the work, most people wont understand/know....which creates the cycle. its really upsetting to watch kids romanticize things like mental illness without understanding the weight of what theyre doing

      Yeah, it was! I think he mentioned the race of the lover because it was about her getting pregnant. If the man and wife are both white and she had a mixed race baby it would be obvious that it wasn't his. Which would also make it strange that she tried to convince her husband that it was his baby, if she knew it was fathered by a black man. Although I guess it could have been a racist thing on the husband's part, my take was that he felt it was relevant to the situation he was describing.

    With regards to the cat one. That one legit makes me angry. Cats are indeed carnivores. In fact, they are considered obligate carnivores, and making a cat eat a strictly vegan diet is deadly to them. They need a certain amount of amino acids, specifically taurine, that comes from meat and can't be substituted in them and will lead to poor health and eventually death.

Her parents and grandparents are chinese and my friend said her grandparents were preassuring her to get married and have kids. She was already struggling with long hours as well as mental health as she was just starting out as a G.P, she was single, and this was constantly thrown at her. I asked her out of curiousity and in a way so i didnt tread on any toes and she said that it was something her parents and grandparents were expected of themselves. Last i heard, 3 months later after the conversation she was married.
