I'd like to move into owning some stocks. It would be nice to own a part of a company that I like and it would be even nicer to be good enough to earn some cash. Can anyone suggest an online game or…Continue

"I cannot be certain, but I suspect the frustration I have felt in the criminal justice system is comparable. It is not only inefficient, but at times borders on the farcical."

Have you Worked in Companies/Industries with Massive Inefficiency?

I'm nearly 3 years into my private sector career during which time I've been with two different solar PV installation companies. I've learned a massive amount both about myself and subject matter. But it seems like there is so much unnecessary inefficiencies, waste, errors and stress across all departments. I hope it's just because the industry is young with about 6 years of growth (is 6 years a young industry). My question is: is an absurd level of stress from waste, inefficiency, errors…See More

"Forget the books. Set an example by being the kind of man you would want your sister to end up with. And set the expectations (politely) for the live-in about how he needs to act in the home. Some rent, yard work, clean the bathrooms, etc. Not try…"

"All of the advice I've gotten from the Love and Logic folks has been solid.  I haven't read this book, but I would recommend giving it a shot and see if it's helpful:  Parenting Teens with Love and Logic Good luck!"

"She has a live-in boyfriend? I'm afraid it's too late to "parent" her. Best you can do is get the boyfriend out before she becomes a parent herself"

Any Highly Recommended Parenting Books?

There are too many parenting books. Can anyone suggest one or two that are really good?I'm late twenties and moved back in with mom, sister and sisters live-in boyfriend. My sister is lacking strong guidance and my mom isn't stepping up so looks like I need to pick up the slack. I'm just looking for some day-to-day communication or guidance tools. She needs to get her grades up, lose some weight, and be more grateful she has a live-in boyfriend at the age of 16. It's getting out of hand and I'm…See More
