    Can someone help me decode this message?

    I'm trying not to analyze it or decode it or dwell on it too much; I'll need to think, but some perspective of others would be helpful. Thanks in advance. I am wary because I simply don't know if they are sincere, or trying to lure me back in as narcissists are wont to do.

    More...well, less-known and more 'casual' forms of neglect?

    What are some more casual, less-recognizable forms of parent-to-offspring neglect? Is this what happened to me? For starters, during high school I was not allowed to eat breakfast. My mother had very sensitive hearing and conveniently the bedroom was right above the kitchen, and apparently me...

    Emotional Bonds

    I don't feel emotionally connected to my father. Not even a single bit. Moreover, i hate him. I hate his political opinions, way of seeing life, he is like a freaking cave man. If it's your parent, you can ignore their stupid opinions and love them just because they are your parents right? I...

    Resources for parents to deal with children's meltdowns that don't involve restraint

    When you're witnessing your child having a meltdown, it can be very tough to deal with, but restraints are not something you should use as a go-to method unless for very extreme circumstances, and even then several restraint methods are not okay. These are the go-to sources you should consider...

    Parents Seem a Bit Too Strict

    I think my dad disabled Reddit. It isn't working properly for me. Usually, he would use OpenDNS. BUT if he did, Discord wouldn't be working, as well. The site itself loads, but when I try to sign in, it does not work. I don't know why my parents are so against me using Reddit tho. I only use it...

    My Parents Don't Allow me on Discord, for OTHER People's Langauge

    [IDK where else to post this. You can correct it if needed.] Apparently, I am no longer on Discord. Wanna know why? My parents spied on my Discord account and noticed that I was in several servers where people where using r-rated language. I'm 16, not 6. I'm also only half a year away from being...

    How Would my Parents React . . .

    I wonder how my parents would react if I started dating another dude. Of course, due to anxiety of them finding out, I'd try to keep it secret, but I wonder how they'd really feel. They are Christians, and they made multiple attempts to make me be the same way, the most recent of which were...

    I'm trying to come to terms with missing out due to Asperger's/dysfunctional family

    Hey guys. So lately I haven't been feeling the best lately. As for why its because I've been feeling a mix of negative emotions. Guilt, regret, anger, sadness and betrayed. And there's several reasons but it mainly has to do with some recent events in my life. It's a long story, so if you want...

    Is it Okay to be a Nudist if You are Christian?

    Sorry about the texting language in here. I originally sent this in a venting channel in a Discord server that I am a member of. I don't know why my parents have a problem with me being naked in my own room. Many types of clothes are not friendly to how I process senses such as touch. Also, in...

    Do NT'S naturally make eye contact?

    My dad died many years ago. After researching everything I can find on ASD, I recognized several autistic traits in his side of the family, some relatives really stood out as definitely AS or Autistic. My dad literally drilled into me to look people in the eye when I was very young. He was a...

    Do teens know what they want to do when they grow up?

    "It's very difficult that kids that age know what they want to be when they grow up" said my dad, sixty-seven, when I was telling him that my daughter, thirteen, already knew what she wanted to do when she grows up. Today, in the locker of the pool where I go swimming, I heard two women...

    Parents want their kids "labelled" as Autistic to cover up their own failings

    Link. Normally I would sooner rip out my own teeth with a blunt instrument than link to the Daily Fail, but it was a link that came up just now on my Facebook feed and thought it was relevant to this forum. Thoughts?

    A mom, a son and lots of curiosity

    My eight-year-old told me last night, again, that he’s not learning anything at school. That he wants to know how everything was created, and how the plants and animals were inside. I told him the we could learn it at home anyway. So today I found these very cool videos that I want to see and...
