"You know, Iain, there must be two sides to this story. There usually is. It is difficult for us to give a fair response here, when we have no idea what your wife's version is. You're talking about separating her completely from the boy...…"

Native Son replied to Iain Dwyer's discussion End of the rope
""Little pitchers have big ears." A big part of the problem is that your son has totally picked up on the contempt you feel for his mother. That's why he "won't listen to her." Start showing her some respect simply…"

"It's late for this, of course, but better than never: I suggest you stop thinking primarily about what she can give you, what she owes you, and how you can force or convince her to do what you want. After all that you've done already...…"

OHK replied to Iain Dwyer's discussion End of the rope
"To be honest, in this case, she does not deserve a say in his life. She seems to just not care about you or the boy. Remove her from your life."

Todd Serveto replied to Iain Dwyer's discussion End of the rope
"One of the main ingredients in any successful relationship is unity of purpose. It looks to me as though that hasn't been there, but that the two of you have both let life happen to you at random. With with no real plan or direction, nobody has…"

Iain Dwyer replied to Walt Morgan's discussion essential works for the amateur philosopher in the group Philosophers
"I'm enjoying "On the Shortness of Life" by Seneca. Very accessible, very actionable, and a very good read."

Iain Dwyer replied to Cecil Rick's discussion Depressed and extremely scared of the future
"As an introduction, I'm 25, I have a 6 year-old son (do the math) and I have a degree, a house, a car, a good relationship with my family, a challenging job, and an amazing kid. I said all that to add some weight to this: this are not as bad as…"

End of the rope

I'm at a tough spot in my life. I'm not usually the time to share this much with the general public, but I'm at my wits end.My ex and I had a son when we were 19. She became pregnant the week we both started university. She completed her first year, but didn't continue after that; I finished my degree supporting her and our son in my final year (our families helped before that).After I finished school, she started up again, this time at an animation/illustration school. It lasted about two…See More

Iain Dwyer replied to Benjamin M.'s discussion Building leg muscle without weight machines
"I like one-legged squats (also called pistols). Check them out on Youtube. They also look really cool. It depends on your goals. If the main goal is size rather than strength, fairly high volume is the key."

Iain Dwyer replied to Jason's discussion Managing One's Online Self
"I disagree with the advice of avoiding having anything online. It's impossible these days, and the more proactive you are about what comes up, the better you'll be. Starting the blog was an excellent idea, and already puts you several…"

Iain Dwyer replied to Cameron Pearson's discussion Cigar book...
"I'd be really interested in the history of cigars (I like object focused histories like that). Identifying information and the like would be useful, although I don't think that should be the focus. Too easy to Google. I find the best way…"

Iain Dwyer replied to Mike's discussion KFC Double-down
"Only two kinds of cheese? And they don't butter the chicken? How is it supposed to replace a bun if it isn't buttered?"

Iain Dwyer replied to Geoff Goodman's discussion How do I break a weight loss plateau?
"I'm late to the party here, but I agree with Jesse. I think the bulk of the weight you dropped recently is due to improving your diet, not excercise. To get that last bit focusing on lifting heavy in short sessions will do wonders. Working out…"

"Lately I've been playing card tossing with my son (5 yrs old). I take my fedora, put it a decent distance away, we divide the pack into red and black and see who can toss more cards into the hat. He's surprisingly good at it. I thought it…"
