The Police agree there is enough evidence to grant an AVO. Then we make the mother hand her child over to the person who Police have agreed is a danger to her. Then we all act shocked when a tragedy like this occurs. Again as a society the right of a "man" (I use the term loosely) to see his child is seen as more important than protecting that child from potential violence. Any man who has been violent towards a woman has the capacity to be violent towards a child. That is a no brainer. Why are we still doing this???

I'm 44....I took this medication age 15 (1995) and the specialist made sure you were on the oral contraceptive (even if not sexually active) due to know side affects. It was non negotiable. It was fantastic for my acne. However it is also associated with mental health side affects (I developed an eating disorder), so you really need to monitor teens taking it.

14 is really hard for girls … we just got to the other side (still another tween to go)… only parent advice is to understand they have alot going on. Try not to take every snide comment personally, keep a sense of humour. Keep knocking on their door and asking about their day … even when they are being arseholes.

He’s lying in the bed that he has made.

The breastfeeding is irrelevant. His show was 15+ people should respect the artists requirements for attending. Yes I’m a mum of two kids… yes I breast fed.

My heart breaks for all these victims and their families. The heroics of those those who helped is amazing. It also makes me grateful that guns are not easily available in our country.

I bought a Barney Bed 4 years ago … it is still as good as the day I bought it. The cover has been through the wash 100s of times (I just have the basic cover)….. it’s a great investment!!

This is just horrific....This poor family.

It's just the new way of marketing to kids. Unregulated and often unseen by parents. That's why I don't allow a phone until 13 and no social media until 14. Even with that my 14 year old quickly became Mecca obsessed after previously having zero interest in beauty and make up.

I agree, some parents need to tone it down. However I would still urge parents to be actively involved in their kids sport. My child is a swimmer and we struggle to get enough parents to time keep at a meet. We get the "I pay coaching fees, so I don't need to help" attitude. Club sport needs parents involved. Yes, screaming at your kid, putting on the pressure and trying to be a coach isn't ok......but please be there, help fill volunteer rolls (it's essential) and always be your child's biggest supporter no matter how they play/perform.

@katet ... I had this with my in laws. They helped a lot (probably too much) with their first two grandchildren. By the time our two were born they pretty much wanted nothing to do with ours. Perhaps burnt out and taken advantage of. 

My advice is, don't have kids expecting anything from anyone. That way, you won't be disappointed.

Each to there own. No two schools are the same, no two kids are the same. Just let everyone do what is best for them. My girls go to an all girls school, but are involved extensively in high level sport with both boys and girls. That works for us.

I'm 43 and have come to realise a couple of things, firstly some people don't value and nourish a friendship like others do. I have a couple of friends who do, but most don't. Secondly, there are people who organise  and those who don't. However as an organiser it can be frustrating that no one can bother to organise a dinner or coffee. I now have a rule  3:1. If I have instigated the last three catch ups with a "friend" the ball is now in their court. If they don't ask or organise something, I'm done.

I’m young but wear a hearing aid…. Even with them I just find background noise in movies makes it so hard to hear the dialogue. My husband has perfect hearing but often misses dialogue in movies these days. So yeah, we often use the subtitles.

She looks great. My mum had an eyelid lift as the dropping lids make her feel constantly tired. It has made a real improvement to her feeling well. I see this as no different to a breast reduction improving someone's back/shoulder pain.

I guess no parent would ever want to believe their child was capable of such horror.

The same story has been done on Disney+ Dopesick … staring Michael Keaton (who is brilliant) we now seem to have different streaming services making the same shows with different actors

I’m 43… never ironed as an adult. Don’t buy clothes that need ironing. If they do, I take them to the dry cleaners. Life is way to short for ironing.
