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

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
He seems to take weeks between emails. And when he finally responds, he has a “new idea” and he may need you to do a “trial” for free.
There are many people who will waste your time. You can be patient with them or completely cut them out.
But when it comes to your business, time-wasting clients should be avoided at all costs. Preferably, before you start working together!
Here’s how you can spot them:
They always change their mind about what they want
They’ll keep changing their goals and ideas. One day, they need you as a consultant. The next day, they want a website redesign -- even though you’re a content writer.
In the end, you’ll either have to let them figure out what they really need from you. Or, you could save yourself some time and tell them exactly what it is that you can do for them. Establish some boundaries!
They’ll try to squeeze every dollar out of you
This is a big one! A serious client knows what you’re worth and is willing to pay extra for your services.
On the other hand, a time-wasting client will try to lowball you. You have to remind them that in order to receive quality services, you have to pay competitive prices.
“There’s more work available”
Speaking of people who waste your time and cheap clients, “free trial” with the promise of “more work later” is a no-no.
You should avoid these people like the plague. They’re looking for a freebie. And as cruel as it sounds, you’re running a business, not a charity.
Clients who think they’re Experts in your field
Let’s be honest, even if they’re the CEO of a multimillion dollar company unless they’ve been coding for years or writing copy for major publications, chances are they don’t know what they’re talking about.
They’re the people who will ask for 100 revisions.
Remind them that you’re the expert. You don’t tell them how to run their business, they shouldn’t tell you how to run yours.
There are plenty of signs that a potential Client will waste your time. But if you’re serious about learning who to avoid, online business coaching is your best bet!
