Re: Is it Ethical??


 AAWWW teenaged girls...ain't they fun??? My first DD made it through with flying colors now my other DD she is on that fine line and I hate to do it but there is a time to be a friend and a time to be the parent.
 She pushes and tries to be WAY older than she is but you know all in all she is a good kid I think your DD is as well its that darned peer pressure that makes them go and do those stupid things.
 You are doing the best you can just keep plugging away you will find something that works for both of you.
 I understand your frustrations but you know if you keep at it she will come around. emoticon

Re: Is it Ethical??


Well, things are some better. She is no longer running with her usual friends. Seems they all had a falling out seems the drugs, drinking and boyfriends were more important then my daughter.

She is hanging out with a little bit older group 18 to 20 but they are nice girls. She has stopped drinking and is more respectful.

She is in for a bad time this weekend though, her oldest brother is coming home and plans to spend a little one on one time with is troublesome little sister. This could be really good; wish I was a fly on the wall. She respects his opinion and he plans to really run her attitude through the mill.

It's good to hear that there's some progress. Probably the best thing to happen to her was to change her friends.

Re: Is it Ethical??


I am thankful that my youngest daughter realized the pit she was about to fall into with her friends in Alabama. At 17, she asked to move here to Tennessee with me and my husband (her stepdad). She said she needed a clean slate...a new place where no one knew her, so she could be the kind of person she needed to be. Never, in all the time she lived with us, did she give us problems. She was the hardest to give birth to, and the easiest to raise.

The other daughter...the one that likes to sleep with whatever comes along, has slowed down somewhat. She now has her own place...her and my granddaughter, a good job and she's trying really hard NOT to fall into bed with whatever comes along. She's decided she's too old to play that game. Just hope she keeps that attitude. She'll be 29 next month.....about time she figured it out.

Playful.....and they DO figure it out, at some point. Some takes longer than others. Seems like your DD has figured some of it out....losing the loser friends is the best place to start. With her brother hot on her heels that may also make a huge difference in how she sees herself, and you.
Blessings to you both, as she tries to spread her wings, and you try to keep her from losing her feathers.

Turning to Jesus Christ is your only real hope, please believe me and try it.

The AntiBob,

please respect other people's choices. Nobody here has tried to convert you, so please don't push your religion onto the members here.

Thank you.

Re: Is it Ethical??


I was raised Catholic, done the whole Jesus prayer group things and was given the gift to translate and discern tongues. Thanks to this gift I have learned that Jesus is one of the great teachers and were we should immolate him daily he does not want us to worship him. There is far more meaning in actions then words. In my opinion

"please respect other people's choices. Nobody here has tried to convert you, so please don't push your religion onto the members here."

I am not pushing my religion, just telling what actually works, believe me, don't believe me, just trying to help, I have peace and confidence and have seen myself and my family change from our relationship with God.


"I was raised Catholic,"

That is not a true Christian "religion"

Re: Is it Ethical??


You know, I'm curious. Why did you come here to an explicitly PAGAN (= non-Christian) group to proclaim that Christianity is the "only way that works"? If you're only "trying to help", what makes you think that the help is needed in the first place?


... just telling what actually works



That comes across as quite arrogant, btw. Your choice works for you, and that's great. But why would your way be the only way?

You see, you really should start to listen to Mother Earth. Get to know the elements, get to know the life force that inhabits and connects every being and every thing in this world. Discover the energy system inside your own body - maybe then you'll think differently.

Doesn't sound right? Well, that's my way, and it actually works. I've seen it bring people health, peace and confidence.

Re: Is it Ethical??


Ah....I have a statement here.

AntiBob, you said that Catholisism isn't a true Christian religion..No, it's not, but it IS a true Christian DENOMINATION. Baptist is NOT a religion, it's a denomination, as is Pentacostal, Assembly of God, Church of God, etc. Those are denominations, under the umbrella of Christianity.

I'm so pleased that you and your family have found a path that works for you, AntiBob. However, that path doesn't always work for everyone. Myself included. I did the "Christian" thing all of my life, up until about 5 years ago. I have a much stronger peace of mind, I'm much happier, and am able to be more tolerant on this path, as opposed to the path I was on as a Christian.

We thank you for your attempt to help, but please, be mindful that this IS a Pagan board. It's a bit rude to come to a religious board, touting a different religion.

You are welcome here, as long as you keep that in mind. If you have some good homesteading knowledge, we'de love for you to share that with us, as we'd be pleased to share our knowledge with you, if you are truly interested in the homesteading side of this board.

Again...thank you for the attempt, but in the future, please keep in mind what kind of board you're on emoticon emoticon
