    Is having children a choice or an expectation?

    So me and the wife were having a discussion about her friend saying that having kids isn’t a choice. Well I think it absolutely is a choice of you can make between the two of you and we both chose not to have kids. So what does everyone think? Does society make us think we need to procreate and...

    Changing how a man looks good on my paper

    I now have a map with all the places with hidden mines that I have to avoid in my love life. These mines are charming, exciting, intelligent men, that had unloving mothers. I also have in my map a destination: a man with his feet on Earth, capable of love, (since he received lots of it when he...

    Learning at dinner time

    My eight-year-old son wants to know about the creation of everything, so I’m searching the web to find cool videos to share with him. He usually spends a lot of time in his own video games, he also has swimming classes, and spends time doing homework. And last, but not least, he has seven hours...

    Info Junkie

    My seven-year-old son laughs every time he learns, or understands, something new. He recently asked me, how people with disabilities manage to do stuff. I explained that everyday tasks are harder to accomplish, but that they learn to do things in a different way. Then, I showed him a video of...

    Filling up your world

    You don’t know your life is filled up with elephants, but it is, believe me. Pay attention today, and see how many elephants you can find. I had this epiphany when my daughter was an elephant-obsessed-two-year old. She thought that elephants were called ‘circles’ because I once told her ‘that’s...

    If you are or were a video gamer

    For how long did you use to play? I’m wondering because my seven-year-old son has been obsessed about the same game (Splatoon and Splatoon 2) for aproximately six months, and could play the whole day, if he has nothing else to do. He also watches a lot of videos of other people playing the game...

    My kid’s meltdown

    After a thread posted by @Voltaic, where he asked if people in this forum loved themselves, I wrote a blog post saying that my main goal as a mom was to love my kids and teach them to love themselves. Two days later, my seven-year old son spent like an hour screaming, pacing around with his...

    I have the most important job in the world

    I read a simple question in a thread here in AspiesCentral: ‘Do you love yourself?’ ‘What kind of question is that? Of course I do’, was my immediate thought. Unfortunately, most people answered either ‘no’ or ‘yes except’. I was appalled. I haven’t always had the best self-esteem. Just this...

    Mockingbird 2017-11-28

    In Caitlin’s world, everything is black or white. Things are good or bad. Anything in between is confusing. That’s the stuff Caitlin’s older brother, Devon, has always explained. But now Devon’s dead and Dad is no help at all. Caitlin wants to get over it, but as an eleven-year-old girl with...

    Relating to children

    So, I've said before how I am devoid of any maternal instinct and I do not know how to relate to kids until they're able to talk reasonably well (probably also doesn't help that I can't do imaginative play). Two of my sister's in law just has babies, and we're going to see one of them later...

    My kids' minds

    I read somewhere that we are all artists when we are kids (until someone says a negative critic against our art work). Likewise, we are all philosophers when we are kids… or maybe I’m wrong, and I just used to be a kid philosopher, and my two children turned out to be even better kid...

    Who else didn’t know how to play with barbies (or any doll)?

    I just remember “playing” by talking to a certain doll while I tucked her in, and then leaving her sleeping beside my bed. But Barbies, I had absolutely no clue. I remember arranging the ‘setting’ , organizing the house or the town where they were supposed to live, but when I was done with...
