Pandemic Parenting Survival Purchase

Am I over reacting? Am I the one in the wrong no him
Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?
Idk what to do
My boyfriend and I have been fighting because he found some old messages that I had when we started going out, the messages are not bad the conversations where just like hi and bye kind of thing but because I told him I wasn't talking to anyone he's mad but da whole time he was still hanging out with his baby momma behind my back and he would delete all his messages to her so I wouldn't see them

But my question is how do you handle it because anytime I try to talk to him about anything he automatically yells at me, deflects, accuse me of cheating. How do you go about handling
How can I get my teen to confide in me
I've been trying to get my son to confide in me about why he is feeling so depressed. He is 15 years old and a very good teen but have no idea why he is so withdrawn and quiet. Please help me I cant bear to see him like this
What do I do?
I'm not sure what to do. Recently separated mom with 2 young girls and pregnant with my 3rd.
I took my son's Ipad away because I'm at my wit's end with him.
He is so addicted and doesn’t want to do anything else. Can anyone tell me whether I did the right thing or am I being too harsh?
It's 3 y I divorced and we have shared custody of 2 lovely kids. Any advice on how to make them understand that divorced parents is ok?
What should I do?
My son is acting out in school and giving people the middle finger and running around and hitting when he is restrained and he also has speech apraxia and may have ADHD
Let’s face it. Parenting at home while trying to work is challenging. And by challenging, I mean terrible. To top it off, I am a single parent to two young kids (ages 4 and 9 months) so honestly, I don’t even want to hear complaints from those with partners.
Yet single or not, one thing is certain; we are all struggling. Of course, we love our children, but no one ever signed up to play both housewife (or househusband) and simultaneous breadwinner, with no childcare.
So, how am I, a single parent, surviving the parenting apocalypse? With the help of one simple purchase; the Disney App.
No, I am not building extensive Lego castles with my active 4 year old all day long. We are not creating sock puppet theatre and broadcasting it on instagram to raise money for sheltered animals. We are not doing science experiments, and I am tragically behind with his online learning (online learning for a 4 year old? Really??)
However, my son is most definitely caught up on the cultural canon of fairy tales. He knows that Ariel found her voice. He knows that true love can awaken someone from deep sleep. And yes, he is obsessed with puppies who fight crime.
Add to myWE:
Do I feel guilty? Constantly. But no matter how much of the Disney Channel my son watches, it’s still way less TV than I was exposed to, during the “neglectful” 80s. Yet somehow, I turned out more or less OK.
And, the Disney App is actually amazing, and way better than the trash I watched as a kid (cue The Young & the Restless, and Three’s Company). The Disney App has all the classics, from Mary Poppins, to the Sound of Music, to old fashioned Mickey Mouse. Children are fascinated by storytelling. Stories are how their developing minds best take in new information. So why not awaken their soul through fantasy, magic and storytelling?
Before you judge me, we do go on regular nature walks, we do build Lego and we do paint. We just also sing along to Julie Andrews on a regular basis. And if music, lyrics and fantasy are not important educational tools for a 4 year old, then I quit. I’m done. I’m logging out of my Pinterest account forever, and signing in to be an 80’s parent again. Pass me a smoke while I watch Mary Poppins clean up the nursery with a snap of her fingers. Contemporary parenting isn’t working for me anymore, and I’m signing into my Disney App.
