And to old man,
I am not an adolescent or semi-literate… it does not seem that this couple is in need of professional counseling at all. The money they would spend on a therapist can be better used on cleaning help.
Household help is quite common these days, so I’d say bite the bullet and get her help. You can have someone for a few hours once a week… from personal experience this goes a long way.
As far as your concern about building resentment if you constantly give in: Don’t fret so much about the future. If you are able to be gracious and understanding now (especially because she is pregnant) then do so without worrying about how it will affect future communication. Marriage is about giving. If you are better at in than her right now, embrace it.
I know each home is different, but to me it sounds like Torah Mom does not trust her 12th grader.
I am not advocating giving children access to things that they are truly too young to handle, but the internet has become an integral component of societal functioning, and to deny all access to young adults is essentially an unhealthy form of coddling.
With parents like these, how will young adults, our future, develop the competency to view the world through their own eyes, and not through the eyes of their hovering parents?
A message to all the Torah Moms out there: Trust your children. Trust the chinuch you have worked so hard to instill.
There is a big world out there, and there are many useful and practical advantages to the internet, for example 12th graders getting feedback on sem options. It seems you do not allow your high school age children internet access, which is your rightful authority to exercise, but perhaps it would be wise to not be so concerned about other people’s children, as many good bais yaakov girls have some kind of internet access in this day in age.
The assumption that your sheltered daughter would not be safe in an environment with girls who know how to navigate the internet… well it seems a bit naive and harmful.
If your daughter is old enough to attend seminary, she is probably old enough for a little bit of exposure.
Its Mesores Rochel. Girls range from the Bnos Chava to BJJ spectrum, some with a little Hadar-ness mixed in. A great place for growth oriented girls. They look for fun personality in addition to the good marks, hashkafos, and all that. “Work hard, play hard…”
K so “naughty and nice” is my favorite, then “minimalist” and once I did “body language” and was quite pleased, but it was a bit grey for the conservative.
BTW if you do one coat of “madamoiselle” and a top coat of “Fiji” it comes out awesome….tried it by accident cuz the first coat was too sheer…these are all essies btwJanuary 5, 2011 2:32 am at 2:32 am in reply to: Hamodia magazine new column "Single as a dollar bill" #724534

For Rabbi Geisler you really need to know where every male member of the extended family went to yeshiva and for how long and with what Rabbeim…even if it was 50 years ago…and camps…and i’m not kidding…really be prepared and hatzzlacha
Oh please everyone who got offended by ehrlicher realy has to learn to GET OVER THEMSELVES and TAKE THEMSELVES A LITTLE LESS SERIOUSLY…. ok, Hashem loves everyone, ok we all have our pet peeves and laughs and everyone don’t embarras yourselves and just chill please… let the mods busy them selves with more imp things
Ooh lets discuss cinderella and the distorted hashkafa that puts on shidduchim
Yea they plowed Times Square so the ball can drop on New Years. Insanity.
No I’m passionate about this and I’m angry because there is no excuse for people to have to be dying because ambulances can’t get through! This is brooklyn not hicksville! (Yes Hicksville is a real place)
And Goq, this is not hupitzville I meant the only train in brooklyn running is in hupitz.
You misunderstood me completely, I did not berate Daniel for distinguishing between different groups of Yidden, I merely questioned the apropriateness of the implication of his post. Please read or comprehend before you make statements.
🙂 sok no hurt feelings!
Oh, so my freak outs are a give away? unless I plan them to throw you off… Its an art to be able to create a persona
Its something like wearing plum colored burberry crew neck sweaters over the traditional white shirt black pants…
The cool ones also tend to stand out on a limb and do the gray pant thing every few days
text on my cell
🙂 twisted…hahahahaha you made me laugh this thread was worth it for your comment alone
Who said i thought I was old enough to get married? whoa now were getn touchy
Not always is bein 100% yoursel the best bet. Depends on who you are and what the sem wants and where you want to go. Bad advice, eclipse, bad advice.December 20, 2010 4:33 am at 4:33 am in reply to: Which Sentence Or Conversation Changed You in Some Way? #720432
Well anything positive anyone ever tells me gives me a high. A real high. Like, I thrive on it for days and days.
the study was not to determine who actually is amale or female. it was only to gather everyones opinions on what sort of screenname they felt would belong to either a male or female.
Well stamagoy, some of us are just awesome multi-taskers
Well Daniel, if you’re equating your MO status with a step down in your level of dedication to G-d and His commandments, then that is a shameful confession.
I WANT TO DO EVERYTHING!
Can we please not even say bad words like Facebook on yeshivaworld…?!
“Albeit a Mussar one,”… like, how female is that?
That game makes me so tense.
oooooh sof davar, I LOVE YOUR SCREENNAME!
That’s almost as clever as moving mountains. Oh, and forgive me once again moderator.
So my car has that camera thingy in the back so obviously like I never have to turn around. ever.
It makes a difference cuz I’m interested. And also because I’m planning to fool everyone with my next screenname. DUH!
Right so havesomeseichel, been there done that, hence my dilemma. letsay I love both…December 17, 2010 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm in reply to: How Long Have You Been Part of the YWN Coffee Room? #719273
I’m fairly new as well. I won’t say just how new because it is my life’s goal to be valued as a regular. Wow that was disclosive of me.
Well your screenname is definetly yeshivish
Am I the only one not getting the tragedy?!
Somehow I feel like we’ll all be fine without a replacement. Seems like we’ve been managing.
Am I supposed to be sad bout this?
Obviously I passed on my first… BASICS!
“To what we feel is necessary”……
Now that is not exactly “all fairness”
Its yeshivish logic i guess.
🙂 This support is overwhelming! And to think I was suffering alone. iyH I will use this as a mussar haskel and go out of my way to include those on the sidelines
male? really? that’s interesting… unless you really think the opposite and are trying to get me to confirm.. oh the mind game possibilities are endless…
It would entertain me though if Poppa bar Abba was female, or shlomozalman…December 16, 2010 6:04 am at 6:04 am in reply to: Inappropriate Opposite Gender Interactions in the Workplace #1075576
In the workplace? What about in the CR?!
I know this is a bit off topic, o forgive me moderator, but i just have to say- “moving mountains” your screen name ROCKS!
gosh I wish I wouda thunk of that
Wow this CR is a tough crowd… I feel like an outsider, like I’m not part of the history, like you’re all telling jokes and high-fiving and I’m left out of all the action…. I’d share my snack to break in to the “in” crowd, but I’m at a little disadvantage here with the screen and all. sniffle.
You forgot the Why. C’mon, don’t tel me thats your best.
This is not about disgust, it is about how I’m going to fix the world. Good Riddance.
“There are people (mainly one person) here who starts an argument, and then they need “weight” and lots of comments defending their (many times insane) positions. “
Omy Mod-80, are you also maah?
