Howdy,So I had a thought: Do guys really need a man cave? Is it important to have a space all your own separated from your family? The reason I ask is a good friend of mine who is a father of 3 has…Continue
Howdy,I am the father of a newborn girl, my first child. She is awesome. My wife (her Mother) is also awesome. Right now she is in auto pilot mode of sleeping, eating and pooping and this part is…Continue
"Its worth a watch. The film touches on the idea of the darkness and evil that lurks in the mundane and boring world of middle class America and how we are all affected by it. Very good film and Frank Booth (the films bad guy) is one of those…"
"Of course I will throw in some cold shouldered indifference every now and then too: Ignore her when she speaks, make her open the door for ME, slowly control every aspect of her life and make her give up contact with friends and family...
"I agree. I think that the most important thing to do overall is to love her Mom and treat her like a queen so my kid can see the example.
That seems to be a very prevalent response in this thread and I am defiantly taking note. "
"Thats interesting. Yeah ultimately if she chooses it and her mom and I deem it acceptable media for our household we won't deny her (princess orientated films) but I figure I can limit access to it at least or as you mentioned, we can…"
"It must fill some psychological need.
Sort of like Rescue Bots, Doctor Who (I supervise this one closely), Transformers, Batman, &c. &c., fill one for my little boy. I wasn't a superhero type, but boy is he."
"If you're worried about the "old school" princess (the useless damsel in distress), check out some of the newer films like Brave, Wreck It Ralph, or Shrek, and to an extent you could use the real Star Wars trilogy as well."
"Considering my daughter is 4, almost 5 now... and we've actually TRIED* to "push" her away from the princess thing. It doesn't really work. If she ends up going through a princess phase just run with it as you only have so long…"
This man gets it.
Tricky part; it means you treat your wife, her mother, exactly as you would expect her future husband to treat her.
Also; YOU go have some fun with your wife. YOU get her out. YOU be her stress relief.
"I like your thought about your thought process, I do a lot of my thinking while semi conscious in the early AM.
BTW` Buy a tiny solid state recorder at wally world or etc. they'll record like 10 hours non stop and you can always have it in your…"
"He's partially right, I guess. I don't think intrinsic goodness exists in mankind ... which is a matter of both theology and experience. But, I don't think gays are intrinsically worse than anybody else. Sin is…"
Whenever I can after hearing persons talk about the "gay lifestyle," I share my take on the "straight lifestyle": When talking about the "straight lifestyle," who are you talking about, Hugh Hefner or the Waltons? Both are straight, but they certainly have different lifestyles.Usually when I talk about acceptance of GLBTQ+ people I am not referring to the wild, outlandish persons that so often appear at events. I'm usually referring to the ordinary people who live in a house with a dog and…See More
"I'd call you a mechanical artist (if that's what you create) And if your creations DO work as planned, you're using sound engineering practice
I'm a retired electromagnetic engineer, I wrote and survailed the electromagnetic…"
"I liked the original Cosmos series much better than NDT's remake. It was a cringeworthy propaganda piece, and I'm on his damn side of the climate debate.
I also don't agree with those who say NDT is a great science communicator…"
"there's an implication you are referring to Jack here. again, i can't speak for him, but i don't see in this thread where he has called you intrinsically bad. he and many like him fully understand there is more to a human…"
