re: Tween and early teens with smartphones - Hammond Tiger Fan on 6/20/18 at 10:23 pm
[quote]The HS kids use social media to share notes and work on homework in groups. There are no paper party invitations, just posts. Rides, events, school news, etc. Little is planned in advance because they don’t have to. They communicate almost exclusively via social media. You can throw down the ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Tween and early teens with smartphones - Hammond Tiger Fan on 6/20/18 at 10:20 pm
[quote] Yet you come and start threads on the OT for literally just about every life decision there can possibly be. I have no idea how you can be such an authority on parenting when I look at the threads you’ve started over the past 5 years and it scares me to think you can even get out of bed...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]Wow you are the perfect parent and have it all figured out. We are all just jealous of your stoic perfection.[/quote] I'm not perfect. Far from it. I make mistakes all the time, but I'm the parent and it's my job to teach my kids how to be responsible. I don't try to be my kids' friend. I...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]Good luck[/quote] Thanks, but it's not needed. I don't give empty threats when it comes to disciplining my kids. I set the rules and consequences and it's up to them if they choose to break the rules and want to suffer the consequences. I've never had many problems with my kids following t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Sedge weed/nut grass - Hammond Tiger Fan on 6/18/18 at 9:21 pm
I just tried Sedge Hammer about 10 days ago and it seems to be working. It's sure as hell taking a long time to kill it off though. On the package it said it will take 7-14 days to kill it and it possibly will take at least two applications if the infestation is bad. ...

[quote]There is nothing credit wise you can benefit from at 831 vs 805.

Trying to see if I'm on the right track for retirement.... - Hammond Tiger Fan on 6/18/18 at 10:52 am
I'm 40 yrs old and when I input all of my accounts into this retirement calculator it's saying I'll have $105k per year when I retire at age 67. I don't know how long they are assuming the payout at that rate. My guess would be somewhere between 85-90 years old. They are also taking into account tha...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)

Where is the best place to find good deals on cell phone these days? - Hammond Tiger Fan on 6/4/18 at 1:36 pm
The way I used to upgrade my cell phone was to sign a 2 year contract in exchange for the latest edition of whatever phone I wanted. Now companies are forcing you to lease it. So, is it possible to find good deals on a cell phone these days?...
