Spice of Life w/Suga Q&A Session 15

Dear Suga,

My daughter is having trouble getting financial support for her daughter from her daughter’s father who also happens to be my daughter’s current boyfriend. I’m not sure why she stays with him. It’s very frustrating and I’ve basically had to pick up his slack which is hard on me. What should I advise her to do?

Sincerely,

Stressed Grandma

Spice of Life w/Suga Q&A Session 13

Dear Suga,

I am a single woman living on my own. My best friend is being evicted from her apartment and needs somewhere to stay. She wants to come with her 2 small children. I have no children but of course I wouldn’t invite her and not the children. The only problem is she wants her man to come as well. I’m not okay with that in the least. The main reason is because she works and he doesn’t.  Am I wrong?

Sincerely,

Trying to Be a Good Friend

Despicable Me

As a parent I am having trouble reading the research for this article. And even more trouble writing it. Children are frustrating. That is the one thing I pass on to any new mom. Patience is something you have to have when you’re a parent, especially the parent of a child who can’t talk to communicate their needs. I can’t say that as they get older it gets any easier because when they do learn to communicate they tend to have their own little personality which can have different tones and attitudes. But no matter what my kids have dished out at me I have never wished them dead or tried to kill them.  Continue reading

Spice of Life w/ Suga: Cheating

The title says it all! Now this is an article that probably should’ve been written months ago but it’s such a huge subject that I decided to wait. But lately, I’ve heard about so many people getting cheated on that it seems that now is the time to talk about it. This is all my opinion about it and what I’ve learned from others. Feel free to agree or disagree! Continue reading

Spice of Life w/Suga Q&A Session 11

Dear Suga,

I have a best friend who I love dearly but I feel like when it comes to her female friends she isn’t always there for us but bends over backwards over for men whether she’s dating them or not. I want her to stop but I don’t want her to get mad at me. What should I do?

Sincerely,

Friend Sexism

Affluenza or Misogynist?

At the start of the holiday weekend you may have heard of Elliot Rodger. He turned out to be the shooter near the UCSB campus who killed 6 people and wounded another 13 before taking his own life as police closed in. The only thing I am trying to figure out about him was did he suffer from affluenza or was he a misogynist? Maybe it was a combination of both. Continue reading
