Feb 22nd 2011 5:33PM So you would recommend that she have her kid tested for a learning disorder, that would follow him for the rest of his life rather than her to push him, by any means, to be the best he can be? Lets say she gets him tested and labeled for a learning disorder, he has just eliminated any hopes of military service. Wow, what an easy way to crimple your kid just so he doesn't have to be temporarily embarrassed. He should be embarrassed bringing home grades like that anyway. Where is that embarrassment?
Feb 22nd 2011 5:30PM I totally agree Becky03. Contrary to what one of the other posters implied, this boy will ALWAYS love his mom. My mom and dad were the most strict, punishing parents on the planet. Guess what, looking back, I am extremely thankful cause I see what other kids I grew up with turned out like. Stop raising WIMPS people.
Feb 22nd 2011 5:23PM I use the logic that if my child does something in public, I can discipline him in public. For example, if he embarrasses me in the grocery store acting like he is losing his mind, I can discipline him right there. He embarrassed me by acting up in public, why should I spare him being embarrassed by waiting to get home? The problem is that parents want to coddle and spoon feed kids, then when the kids get a dose of reality and that life stinks and isn't fair, they want to kill everyone including the parents who raised them to be little spoiled brats. Let your kids grown up for goodness sakes. There is nothing wrong with being picked for a team last, getting blown out by a better basketball team, having that team tease you all the way back to the bus as you cry all the way home for being a loser, nothing wrong with getting teased for having freckles, pimples, bad clothes etc. I went through all of that in the 90s. It was a part of life. Guess what, I can go back to all those people who laughed at me and say "who's laughing now?" Can say that if the teen decides to commit suicide. Stop raising wimps.
May 17th 2010 7:20AM I have known people who use newborn baby pee on their faces. Just take a diaper and wipe it on. Clears up acne and blemishes. It actually works. But there is that time when
Apr 7th 2010 7:17PM That before picture isn't even her natural hair. You can tell it is an extension because the part if funny. I am a weave expert. I can also tell that the second picture is a weave because the hair has "definition" basically the blending , although good, isn't flawless.
Mar 13th 2010 10:12PM I wash my hair about every two to three weeks. It does wonders for me. If I were to wash my hair more often, it would dry out and break very badly. Of course, I do not feel that this article was meant for me. I am an African American with course, dry black natural (not chemically treated except around the edges). The most I will wash is about once every two weeks but nothing more.
Jan 26th 2010 11:18PM I like it. The only thing that I am put off by is the leather band. Rolex is known for its gold. It would have been cool if rolex could have made a gold band blending different shades of gold to create the leopard print. Maybe an indian/asian, rose colored, and yellow gold to keep the print.
Nov 5th 2009 7:30AM I agree Sonya. When people as my what my childsupport is and I tell them, first thing they say is that is way too high. NO it isn't that was actually wayyyy less than my ex and i were spending on our son when he was together. Childsupport isn't based on the dollar figure. In florida is is based off 30% of the combined income. and of that combined income the wife contributes her share and the husband contributes his share. His money isn't that only money supporting my son. I spend wayyyy more a month that his childsupport. Stop looking at the dollar amount and look at the percentage. If you got it to give, you should give it.
Oct 28th 2009 11:15PM I hate to correct you but Tyler Perry is one of the only film producers who show a cross section of Black America. I love seeing the elite black experience that he depicts cause it has really never been shown before. And he shows it in a real way. Yes there are Black rich snob, poor black snobs, poor black drug addicts, rich black cool people, etc. he shows all of these not just the pimp or whore or drug mother or drug dealer or dead beat dad that Hollywood is all so ready to produce ALL the time. I so got tired of that in the early ninties. Even the hughes brothers didn't protray ALL aspects of Black life like Tyler does. Get it right.
Sep 29th 2009 9:22AM You mean throw resumes in the garbage can like is done when HR managers see names like Devon, Tomyka, Andre, Latisha, etc even though the qualifications are impeccable.
