Justhavingfun: “You know it….
…and that’s why I’m on a diet.”
See this is exactly the type of thing im talking about. I dont want to come to a website where people just say out of nowhere that they are on a diet. Its STRANGE.June 25, 2012 12:51 am at 12:51 am in reply to: The YWN Coffee Room Welcome Wagon #1064572
TheMusicMan: “Arr! Avast and ahoy there, O Pirate! Shiver me timbers! Be there here a single pint o’ cold grog? Blimey! I have a thirst that could sunder the seven seas! Faster, by thunder, faster, or I be sending’ ye to Davy-Jones locker! Arr!”
This has got to be the creepiest welcoming i have ever received. I don’t know how to respond to someone like you so desperate for friends. I can understand why you are lonely and that you want to meet people. But there is a much more normal and civil way to greet someone that doesn’t involve saying such stupid stuff. I know you think that you were being clever or funny or whatever, but it came out sounding really bad. Now im starting to think that this website is full of weird people.June 24, 2012 5:49 am at 5:49 am in reply to: Going off the Derech #1181773
Its not easy to get a teen to go to a councilor willingly because the teen probably feels that they are a normal and going to a councilor would be bad for his social standing if anyone would find out.
I’m not exactly sure why you want him to go to a councilor, but if you want him to go to repair your relationship with him then try telling you that he is doing you a favor by going with you. If you want him to talk to a councilor about remaining religious, then I’d suggest having a rabbi/rav who is close to him go over to him and talk to him.June 24, 2012 5:34 am at 5:34 am in reply to: IPOD help……. #881750
it should be in a folder so go to itunes. in itunes there is an option to add music from a file or folder. It should be like that. (i haven’t used sharepod in a while so im not so sure where the music/movies go when you put them on your computer. If you cant find them try seearching your computer for them.)June 22, 2012 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm in reply to: IPOD help……. #881748
Just do the sharepod method i said. Its fast and easy to use and it works.June 22, 2012 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm in reply to: SMOKING – why should it be MUTTAR? #884460
Yekke2: I am also a teen and know what its like. Whats the question you are asking, Why should I smoke?, or why do people smoke?.
And i do agree with you that it is a bad habbit.June 22, 2012 4:30 pm at 4:30 pm in reply to: Going off the Derech #1181763
Why not try getting him involved in a big brother sort of program. From what you are saying hes to angry to talk to you or your husband. So if there is an older guy that he knows (who you think can be a good influence on him), why not try to have the older guy hang out with him more.June 22, 2012 1:36 pm at 1:36 pm in reply to: SMOKING – why should it be MUTTAR? #884454
@takahmamash When are most of these people starting to smoke? Are they mature 30 year olds? Or are they Teenagers who are more likely to be making stupid decisions.
You obviously are not a teen and don’t think like one. If you were to view how a teen thought you would see that they want to hang out with their friends and have something in common with them. Plus these people try to imitate the older bochrim who they see smoking and it gets in their head that its yeshivish to smoke.June 22, 2012 6:02 am at 6:02 am in reply to: yeshiva for women not very religious (With dorms) #880623
contact someone from NCSY they might be able to help youJune 22, 2012 5:59 am at 5:59 am in reply to: IPOD help……. #881741
Download sharepod it lets you take off music/movies from your ipod and puts it onto your computer. From there its easy to put them onto ITunes.June 22, 2012 5:56 am at 5:56 am in reply to: Going off the Derech #1181759
Just have a heart to heart conversation with him. I know you probably tried this but your son obviously has some issues that he needs help going through. Give him extra attention and try to understand his interests. Focus on improving your relationship with him until he realizes that the more he goes off the derech the more he is hurting you. get closer to him so that he doesn’t want to hurt you.June 22, 2012 5:52 am at 5:52 am in reply to: SMOKING – why should it be MUTTAR? #884450
The reason why people start smoking is simple. PEER PREASURE.June 22, 2012 5:42 am at 5:42 am in reply to: CAMP YACHAD EDMONTON!!! #880532
