Just curious... In the summer, do you let your teenager stay up as late as they want and sleep in as long as they want? What time limits do you set??

I do but I’ve been waking him up at noon. His girlfriend does not have a curfew and has been here really late. About to put the kabosh on that

Yes. Time limits only on technology.

We also have a "bedtime" for the phones and tech access and a curfew. But if my girls choose to read or stay up after that they can. We let them sleep in when there isn't stuff going on.

Yes just because they get up quite early during the school year

Yes, but I start a school routine- bedtime and somewhat of an early rise- in August to give their bodies time to adjust. I hate the body shock and chaos that ensues when I dont start a routine prior to the start of school.

Yes, I did set a time for my under 12 yrs old
child but my teenager I let him enjoy gaming with his friends. Sometimes I think that they just like to see the sunrise and share that experience now with their friends. Hey

To push off or not? TTC for 3 years, 1 year with RET. Just had a failed IVF transfer and my mental health and spouses mental health are in tough spot. His parents are “temporarily” living with us and MIL has severe Alzheimer’s. All of this is straining our marriage badly. I’m torn between pushing through another round of IVF given it’s been SO long - or whether there’s just way too much going on and we need to get our house in order. Is there a right time for IVF?

I never thought I’d say this, but I kinda miss the networking events and stuff.

I have been dating my GF for 3 years. I feel like I am not appreciated in the slightest bit - I get no “thank you”, I get no acknowledgement of anything I do for us.

When to break-up with someone? I’ve been dating my gf for 6 years (2 long distance 1yr on a break and 3 living together. Nothing terrible about the relationship but I’m not happy and no longer feel in love. I’ve tried working it out but haven’t felt the relationship has gotten any better. I feel at this point the best thing to do for both of us is split (she shouldn’t be with someone that can’t love her fully). So here’s the options continued…

I feel so heartbroken 💔- I broke up with my boyfriend and I loved him but we have different values and goals in life so I broke it off.
