clarify something I said three days ago :)?
3 days ago posted i is the following:. “Was 18 months a bit too long to breastfeed my son is 18 months old and I just weaned him the boob tube a few of the mother in my play group made comments behind my back saying I was a spinner for breastfeeding so long., I do it for too long? personally I could not give two sh! ts but was wondering what others thought about breastfeeding toddlers. “the feedback was wonderful and I am glad that so many other women have breastfed or not breastfeeding their infants at this age or even longer, to clarify myself and did not care what thought these two mothers at me feeding my son for so long (so they are teenagers I assume out, they have virtually no knowledge about the benefits of feeding past 6 months or just do not care). My son actually weaned himself, my partner and I went to a concert on Saturday night and on Sunday my son refused the breast and has continued to verweigern.auf a bonus question: How the hell to i relieve the pain in my breasts since I weaned? I have been doing a high strength panadol for 3 days now and I love it. I need to make it easy to absorb and wait for it to stop, to hurt or can anyone suggest an alternative pan relief, not because they have not worked cabbage leaves Best Answer (s):.

Have you tried hand expressing a little? Not much, just enough to relieve the pressure? It will take some time for your body to take in order to indicate that you no longer breastfeeding before it slows milk production, thus far, to do just hand express a little when it hurts the trick, so it’s not painful .

reply by Ellen
Drink at further and consider four or more cups of sage or peppermint tea the panadol as necessary, try nasal sprays, cold packs or even better cold cabbage leaves in your bra. Do not be afraid to express milk, but only until you feel more comfortable. Just like the initial swelling gone, even that will.

answer by Bobbi happen
Did you break the veins in the cabbage leaves? they have to have the goo come to work. Or maybe hot showers or warm compresses to the breasts. I slowly cut back feedings, one or two a day, and did not have much problem.

Reply by Mariya
wearing a very tight bra! as a tight sports bra will help reduce your Versorgung.Sie can also ice packs. a hot bath or shower can help the swelling. Express a little, if you are too uncomfortable, but try to stimulate the breasts as little as possible to disrupt milk production signals to the brain. You can also ibuprofen as well. it goes away soon! hang in there!, and again congratulations on BF for so long

why do so many people these days feel entitled to ruin fishing forever?

why do so many people these days feel entitled to ruin fishing forever?
i’ve fished florida, texas, georgia and offshore for nearly 20 years and i can tell you for a fact that the fish 20 years ago were about 3 times more plentiful than today. people simply dont care about fishing and boating regulations anymore, why is this? keeping way over the limit, keeping out of season and too small/too large fish that they feel they just “couldn’t pass up”. it’s extremely selfish and they are ruining fishing for our children forever. these idiots just cant get it in their heads that their destructive decisions truly count, or they just dont care because they’re so childish they think “its not going to severely hurt my generation so who cares”. look up percentages, this isn’t just some hippie slander, this is a very serious matter, especially to the anglers who SHOULD BE upholding this wonderful tradition with good conservation techniques, instead, even if they let the fish go they rough it up like its a ragdoll and it probably wont live, where did the respect go?
see this is what i mean, nobody gives a %^&# about this! keep on doing what you’re down, have fun now, go ahead and have an extra fish for the fryer that’s 3 inches too small, or eat a pregnant sponge blue crab, but dont complain when they are all GONE

I know there are some folks – recreational fishers that keep the small ones – sometimes for their kids, to teach them the sport. Probably mostl because they are just ignorant about it. I think the bigger problem is the chemicals in the waterways from the boats, the foreign fish, organisms that have been introduced and tend to wipe out whole populations in some areas.

I think folks should be concientious about it and abide by the regulations. There are changes in the works in many of the national parks to limit the fuels emissions,etc., but will it be enough in time? We humans as a species are big users of a lot of the earth’s resources, and there needs to be a change in mindset about it all.

Fishing is my favorite thing to do – I keep a few now and then for a meal or two, but generally put them back. I’ve been taught how to do it right. Maybe more education on the subject is necessary. Heck, I’ve even released a 150 lb. marlin, and loved every minute of it. My philosophy is if you ain’t gonna eat it – let it live.

Answer by topguntony
Ive’d fished offshore Texas and California, I’m with you. We are
all at fault, It seems its not an important enough issue to warrent
a stop to a maturing problem. When I’ve seen the gillnet boats that Japan has those nets are 100 miles long with floats and weights. the hole size is 4in approx. they’ll get every fish that can get caught in them. With GPS and infared Imagery it is not going any better until theres nothing left . When Large Tuna in Japan are sold a 250 lb. fish will top $ 60,000. There high demand.

Answer by tony2kuk
I’ve fished all over the place and it’s the same whereever you go. problem is as fish become more scarce people feel they have a “right” to keep them as they have had to put in a lot of effort. the worst offenders are tourists who fish once a year and have no understanding of the problem.
When i first started 20 odd years ago catching a fish was almost guaranteed average catch was about 5-10 a day easily. now your lucky to even get that a month.

Answer by Tcat
I’ve fished both fresh and salt water all around the world thanks to Uncle Sam…. and I know what you are talking about.
I have kids and I try to teach them how to be sportsman. I stress catch and release. Such as with largemouth bass… If it isn’t at least 12 pounds… its released. With catfish in rivers… they have to be at least 30 pounds or back in the water. Catfish in ponds… 15 pounds or back in the water. Granted, I do enjoy eating fish, but I have standards. And when it comes to teaching kids… I stress catch and release.

I also sponsor fishing derby’s for the kids of soldiers who are deployed to the Middle East. These derby’s are all catch and release. And we also have US Fish and Game or the local conservation office come and teach classes on conservation, wildlife and the environment.

I’m no tree hugger mind you, but I like to have the opportunity to walk in the woods… throw a line in the river, pond, lake, ocean, etc… and catch a nice fish….. and I truely enjoy the company of my kids when I’m not deployed doing it with me. If we don’t protect the things we have…. we won’t have them long.

Answer by Bennie Y
i guess i’m lucky for in my part of the country i don’t know what you’re talking about. I do agree that fish are harder to catch than they were 20 years ago, but if the conditions are right,(weather,boat traffic, etc.) I can catch fish just like we used to do. I also live on a small private lake where we restock (so I know fish are there) and fish in this lake are just as hard to catch as public waters if conditions are not right.

Answer by kspring1949
i have found that people who keep fish that are to small use the wrong kind of hooks or wait to long to set the hooks. it would be nice if people would become better informed about fishing before they actually start to fish. i have used treble hooks but i am starting to get away from them because they are to hard to take out and i usually end up catching fish that are to small to keep

Answer by OLDSMOBOMB 1996
I think a big part of the problem is that there’s not enough game wardens ( or Tree Cops ) as I like to call ’em, to go around and check for licenses or do creel surveys.
I have been fishing for 35 years and have been asked for my fishing license only twice.
Meanwhile I couldn’t count on both hands and feet how many times I’ve seen people with a total disregard for proper fishing etiquette…ie FOLLOWING THE RULES. It really is a shame, but unless the regulations are enforced more often so that there is a greater chance of getting caught, people will continue to be A-Holes. All we can do is try to guilt them into doing the right things.

Answer by huh?
Don’t you think that commercial fishing outfits, where they net any and everything, do much more damage to the aquatic ecological system than your average surf-fisher, or even the sports-fishing boats? That is where my concern lies. BUT people are so reckless about all of our ecological systems. It’s that instant gratification, I can do what I want attitude. I do fish responsibly. Things are changing, we cannot deny that. I have heard stories of blue fish running so thick and close to the shore that you could walk on the water. But in my 12 years of surf-fishing, I have never witnessed that.
Just show by example that you are doing the right thing. Maybe it will catch on.

I don’t know it is really sad though.

Is it me or women these days getting over with child support?

Posted in Working Mothers on 8th May 2012

Is it me or women these days getting over with child support?
Im not sure why/when child support payments got so high. I understand your child gets 20% of you money but that still seems like a lot. When I was growing up my father had 4 kids and had to pay my mom 200 a month ( he hardly even payed that). My mom used that money for things I needed, or if she was short on a bill one month. Normally if there was left over money she put it away so she would have extra money saved if I got sick, the car broke down, the light bill was crazy high one month, or just anything out of the blue happen she would have money to pay for it. My mother worked to take good care of me and made sure i lived on the “good side of town” so I could go to the best schools in my area, she made sure i never went without. Now a days it seems like I see a lot of women who use their children as cash machines. my husbands friend “Bill”( I can not use his real name) pays 1000 dollars monthly for one child. He also pays half of the mothers rent, because she “can not” afford it and he was the one who wanted them to move near him. He’s daughter has reading and writing difficulties and the mother would not pay the 55 dollars a hour for the tutor so it was up to him to pay for twice a week sessions. His daughter is at his house on the weekends, so its not like she is the only one who physically takes care of her. He is a better parent than she is, but he can not have full custody because he travels a lot, sometimes weeks at a time. This woman is a “deadbeat mother”, she allows her boyfriend to lay on her sofa all day long and not work. Bob often buys clothes and shoes for his daughter, so its not like the mother has to buy much for her. I just do not understand why she needs 1000 bucks a month, if he is doing more than she is. She works as a assistant so Im sure she does not make much, but that does not mean she should not be putting up half as well. If he pays 1000 dollars she should be putting 1000 dollars a month up just to take care of her child her child. Being a parent is a 50/50 job. She gets her hair done more than I do, and my husband and I actually have good paying jobs. Bob even helped to buy a new toyota so she could take his daughter back and forth places. He is always buying things for his daughter, he loves her and would give his life for her. often times after he has boughten cloths, payed the tutor, help his BM pay HER bills, and pays for his own needs he barely has the 1000 dollars needed to pay his child support. Yet she has the nerve to call him a deadbeat if he is late one month. Every time I see her she is in expensive cloths, I honestly think she spends the child support or her lazy boyfriend and herself. She even expected him to help pay for the child’s birthday present this year ( an expensive one) even though he had already gotten her one. The sad part is i know men who pay much more than he does, all the BMs I see these days are greedy. I think 150-300 dollars is enough to support any normal child. iI the child has special needs then I can see it going up a little more. Bottom line if the men are putting up 1000 where is your 1000 dollars to contribute?

So Im curious to know what you guys think? Do you think she is getting over or am I over reacting? Feel free to share your stories as well.

By the way I reposted this, I actually never realized there was a parenting category. silly me.
To sara, I understand what you are saying. But he does way more than what is needed to say he gives 1000 monthly in child support. She a so had the child, it his not his fault he went to college and was smart enough to get into a field that pays nicely. If she had done more with her life she would have the money need to for her child. Where is the 1000 dollars going, its not going to the daughters education, cloths, food, or anything else she needs.

People should be staying with the mother/father of their child or not having children with people they dont plan to stay with. Then, this would not be an issue. I think it’s so sad that parenting had been reduced to a monetary donation.

Answer by Sara
I’ll always remember something my uncles said to my grandmother years ago, he’d just had a very good promotion at work and he as a result put up the amount of child support he paid to his ex wife and it was that the girls deserved it as they would have benefited if they were still together so why shouldn’t they still benefit. That was a father who thought about the childrens needs, why should they suffer because one parent can’t earn as much as the other, they’d have had both incomes if their parents had stayed together.

Answer by Ava Brown
Child support is highly sexist anyway. In the majority of cases the mother is given physical custody for 8/10 of the time and the father just gets a bill. Assuming both parents are fit, it should be 50/50 time, no payments, each parent just pays whatever the kids need when they are in his/her care and for big expenses they each pay half. It doesn’t matter if the father doesn’t want custody the judge should make him.

Answer by George MᶜCasland
The problem is not with the guidelines, but with obligors not taking the time to learn how the system works, and what their rights are. Child Support guidelines are not mandatory. All child support is rebuttable under federal law.

This issue is not with the guidelines, it is with teaching obligors what their rights are. The states are not providing child support obligors with this handbook which is free from the feds.

Federal Child Support Enforcement Handbook for Non-Custodial Parents

For 22 years, I have volunteered my time working with divorced/single fathers dealing in family law issues, such as child support, teaching them about what the states are not telling support obligors. However, men are also highly stressed these days, with severe depression and high rates of suicide, which also need to be addressed.
