"I think it's here that I read that a shorter commute means greater happiness, statistically. I'm about 15 miles from my parents and see them about once/month. I work long hours, and my husband and I plan outings well in advance. My parents…"

Will replied to Austin's discussion Deciding Where to Move
"Lots of tradeoffs, to be sure.  I can make a few observations: * I'd guess that the difference of being 15 min away from family and 30 min away, say, is not big.  You'll not see them w/o some planning, but planning is minimal. *…"

"You should not look 10 years out in terms of school. When my daughter was in kindergarten they were using creative spelling; spelling words like they sound instead of the actual spelling. The teacher was writing words on the board like this and she…"

Austin replied to Corbin's discussion Should I put $2 bills in my wallet?
"It's an interesting idea. Though the problem is, they are not any more useful than other bills. The real benefit to using them is as a conversation starter. I have seen this work for a couple people. Trading 2 ones for a $2 bill, or using it at…"

Austin replied to Neil's discussion Need advice.
"What you are talking about is pretty typical. It sounds like you are both in what I call an infatuation phase. Being in love at this point in a relationship is like a chemical addiction. There is no good way to balance without being in at least a…"

Austin replied to C. Armstrong's discussion Help with Blog for Young Husbands/Fathers
"I actually just started a similar blog. Mine is focused in general on the problems and benefits of starting a family young. My wife and I were 21 and 22 respectively when we got married, and our first daughter was born when I was 24. Once my blog is…"

When can a boy learn to fight back?

Good Evening Gents,I have two young boys. My oldest is the only one in school yet. Today his mother called me in a panic because another boy slapped my son in the face at recess. For whatever reason, my son did not press the issue and bring it up with his teacher, I'll have to ask him about that. But, that got the thought into my head, when IS it ok to tell a young man that if someone lays hands on you, it's acceptable to defend yourself? Obviously, I'm not thinking I should put my…See More
