It's important to be kind...but don't be a doormat.
Why I am reminded of the Lisa Loeb song, “You say I only hear what I want to”?
I am so glad I don’t like coffee. LOL
Applicable before Covid isolation.
Joint custody. The mother was going for sole custody and the father was requesting joint. But they ended up back in court several times because both sides kept violating aspects of the custody agreement. (They really loathed each other.) Another time I felt very sorry for the kid.
Varvel is conceding that Trump owns some responsibility for kids in cages during his presidency? But as a rule Republicans placed ownership entirely on Obama for the entire timeline during the Trump Presidency.
About 15 years ago I worked for a Judge who was going to ask the child without parents present (friend of the court child custody representative was present) who he wanted to live with as part of the divorce custody hearing. The attorney for the Mother objected. The judge asked him why. His only answer was that it isn’t usually done…and then he realized how stupid he sounded and dropped the objection. The child said he preferred his father…which is probably the real reason why the attorney for the mother didn’t want the child asked.
Even if Kenny doesn’t want to live with him, he probably still wants him in his life. My Dad was no prize, but I didn’t want him to go away and never see me.
Bernice would have to get out of bed, get dressed, get into a car and drive very fast to the Fuse to get there just as Luann (with a head start) and get/take keys from Luann’s parents to get in through a different door…all without knowing if that was the destination where Tara was. Even if Luann stopped to get gas, simply not enough time. Not Bernice unless the author ignores the impossibility of it.
Everything bad thing that anyone has ever been done to me was by a white person. And I am a white person. That includes being robbed by someone with a gun in Flint, Michigan and assaulted outside a bar in Seattle. So I honestly wouldn’t mind if white people got their act together.
I lot of stuff came together at the end of the 90’s and beginning of the 2000’s that sent the Republicans on their terrible path. Once the Tea Party arose in 2008, I know I was pretty much done with them for the rest of my like. Like Yoda warned, “Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you it will.”
