Jul 4th 2011 8:37PM I have tried ground cinnamon and it did work for me. It's messy because you have to sprinkle it around the area where the ants are and in the cracks they come out of but I changed it every three days to keep it fresh. The ants did not return to that area.
May 6th 2011 6:00PM GOOD-FOR-YOU, STACY!!!! That's the way to handle the situation! But I'd still consider getting your child out of that school and into a better one only I'd let everyone know why I pulled the child from that school and that I am ready and willing to do the same in the new school. I know you have to stick to the district you're in but if financally possible, I'd put my child in a private school. They don't seem to tolerate bad behavior like public schools do.
May 6th 2011 5:03PM Where is the accountability from the school officials? These BRATS gor off SCOTT-FREE ! Community service? I see that every day by people who are working off traffic violations. Is that all this child's life and the misery she suffered worth? Do you think this will stop bullying? Of course not! I thought parents were supposed to be held accountable for the actions of their kids. Why were the bullies AND their parents, along with the school officials given JAIL time?! Where is JUSTICE!!!!
Apr 1st 2011 9:17PM I hope you're not making excuses for these unfit parents. Anybody knows when they're being mean. You're talking about fairly (at least) intelligent people with lots of money. They can't be that ignorant no matter HOW they were brought up.
Apr 1st 2011 9:07PM How about Miley Syrus, Hanna Montana, or whatever her name is. I don't think HER parents were exactly prime examples of good parenting, either. As for Joan Crawford, I think she was probably one of the best actresses ever, besides Bette Davis but I believe the stories about HER parenting because there were other stories I read about her that brought out a dark personality. She could be mean to others too. But she was a CLEAN-FREAK! I guess that was okay.
Dec 30th 2010 9:13PM Katie....Remember, the cat feels just as uncomfortable as you do and the cat also feels alone. She has been to two strange homes with strange people since your daughter left, she isn't getting the affection she's use to and she doesn't know what to do so she meows. I would ask you to try to hold her once in a while, (you'll make her know that your not her enemy) and be sure she always has plenty of food and water and a warm place to sleep at all times. Soon the tention between the two of you should ease up and you'll both feel more relaxed.
Dec 30th 2010 8:48PM No. Children under 10 should NOT have pets. Some ADULTS should not have pets. You can't expect young children to automatically know that they can't play rough with pets. Same with kids under 18. They can't do things that adults can do because they are not considered mentally responsible enough. As for animal trainers, the more clients they get, the more money they make and that's not a slam to trainers. Parents who are responsible enough to go through classes with their kids, (if they can afford it,) are great but that's not the norm.
Dec 30th 2010 8:26PM Donna, you are SOOOOO right. I am a shelter volunteer and I've seen too many dogs returned because they "weren't bonding with the family after all." even after they went into the viewing cages before they were adopted with out of control kids. I have also seen small children get new pets in my neighborhood and often hear yipes and cries of animals coming from houses and see the little ones grabbing at the poor puppy or kitten. It's not the fault of the children. They have no guidance from parents and even when they do, kids tend to get excited and forget. I don't believe little children should have animals at all until they are at least ten or eleven years old and able to know better on their own.
Dec 29th 2010 12:47PM If anyone thinks that Vick has truly repented, you are extremely gullable. HE HAD TO ACT REMORSEFULL!! HIS CAREER WAS AT STAKE! He's a murdering MONSTER, no better than Hitler who enjoyed watching the helpless suffer because it gave him the powerful feeling of knowing he could do it! Hitler was a coward at heart and so is Michael Vick. As for "trying to make Obama look like an ass" as someone posted, THAT two-face doesn't need anybody to work at making look bad, he does a good job of that all by himself!
Dec 17th 2010 3:06PM I do a lot of volunteer work with animals and I've seen too many returned because people couldn't keep them for one reason or another. PLEASE, don't give animals as gifts unless you know for SURE that that animal will be wanted and cared for. Too many unwanted animals wind up tossed out on the streets or mistreated. Also, if you give an animal to someone who really doesn't want it, you leave that person with the responsibility of finding a new home for the animal which can create hard feelings.
