Q: 

Adopted at an older age by people you didn't know, how did you feel?

A:  My son was adopted at four and doesn''t remember his bio family because he last saw his dad at age 2 and his mom at 3. I had read that it''s much harder to adopt older kids, even as old as four and have found that to be the case. So much of their personality is set, especially at 9 & 11. I didn''t think that would affect us with him as young as four, but it has! I imagine that it is going to be a relatively rough road. Even the one who is wanting to be adopted you''ll have struggles with for a while (but maybe not at first). So much of it is just getting used to each other. The other one will come around, eventually, I imagine. He knows that he can''t go back to his bio family, even if that is what he wants. We have had two difficult things to deal with. The first is information that...

Q: 

Why can't you say bad things about companies on sites like Linkedin? I mean, if a company provided bad or no service and still charged you

A:  It''s because company names are usually trademarked. Companies can at any time request that LinkedIn remove their name from the site. As a result, LinkedIn (and other sites) try very hard to maintain an impartial voice through moderation. I don''t necessarily agree that this is right either. Folks should be able to say what they want, when they want, how they want. Freedom of speech. On the other hand, companies have reputations to maintain. There are a number of places without this type of moderation where a person can speak disparagingly about them. Regarding what to do when you get ripped off... Depending on the amount of money, I would likely let my lawyer handle this from start to finish. lawyers know stuff. They''re horrible and...

Q: 

Slanderous Cops and other issues...--Q

A:  Slander is the least of your worries. You, like most criminal defendants, talk too much. You should never, ever, ever talk to the police. This video explains why!!! http://boingboing.net/2008/07/28/law...d-cop-agr.html You were mirandized, but only beacuse you said something. Fish get caught the same way, they open their mouths. Your attorney could address that issue at trial. Why were you surprised that the police told a different version of events? That is their job, to keep you locked away! Your job is work with your attorney to tell your version of events, should you choose to testify. Either way, you work with your attorney to prepare your defense. The jury then decides who to believe. Bottom line, the case isn''t open shut. You do...

Q: 

Husband wants "provision" in divorce, can it be done?

A:  He can ask for anything he likes. If you disagree the court is not likely to order it unless there is some evidence that the man would be a danger to the child. Courts don't like to enter into people's personal lives without good reason.  You may want to counter with your own "Dad can't do this, Dad can't do that. Dad can't have friends of the opposite gender in front of the child" etc, to bring things into perspective for him. "then he's going to start all over again being nasty about everything." That's how some people control others; keeping you in fear of "upsetting" him.  You're divorcing him now...when will you stand up for yourself if not now?  Will you allow him to continue controlling you even...

Q: 

Buying a car for the 1st time, what happens with insurance? do you have to have it in place before looking?

A:  it''s always good to have had prier insurance, but when purchasing a new vehicle , before you can take it home you''ll just obtain the vin # of the Vehicle you are getting and then get a hold of your insurance agent then you should be all set. any other questions if you are buying from a dealer ship they''ll answer them for you. hope that helps. I believe you have 24 hours to get auto insurance once you leave the lot. The dealership will cover it for that long. Most insurance places need the make, model and year of car to make up a quote for you. You need the car first to be able to have Insurance. once you have decided, purchased etc, you then can phone in the details of the car, give them your age and your details, they draw up an amount to pay monthly and then your on your merry way in...

Q: 

If your overeating is tied to a lack of intimacy and you''re currently unattached, how do you stop overeating?

A:  You look at yourself in the mirror. If you don''t like what you see and you feel uncomfortable in your own skin and want to take yourself back, you''ll do what you need to do. The first person you need to be intimate with, and good to, and honest with is yourself. Don''t try to improve yourself for the sake of others. Do it for yourself. When you begin to feel better about who you are, intimacy with another person will happen. Babehart is right...........you have learnt eating ''comforts'' you, possibly started in your childhood with parents who gave you sweets or food treats ''when you were good'' or if you fell over and hurt yourself, or to stop you crying and it continues throughout life.........unless you decide to take control and stop it and it does take some doing as it is an...

Q: 

What is the government plan when all jobs are taken over by robots? What will the humans do?

A:  You can buy robot insurance to protect you when you lose your job. It will also protect you if the robot hunts you down to eat your medicine for fuel. See the link below for more details. I''m a computer specialist. In the past people complained that computers would displace many people. They didn''t! Instead, they made more industry and new jobs for people. Look at the thousands of job types that have sprung up around the computer industry. Capitalism has a way of always finding a need to fill. Say what? Every thing will never be taken over by robots. Who designs, who travels, who sales, are just three examples. I really don''t think you are a programmer. Most programmers don''t say they are studying ''stuff.'' Well, it does seem we''ll need to figure out a way to...

Honey, like the other peole said, suck it up and stay at home. What makes you think that at 15 (or even your 23 year old insides) you can make it on your own?

GROW UP, then move out when you are 18. i just wet myself laughing you would have to be amcipated.but u dont have a real reason....so suck it up for 3 more yrs....

Q: 

My wife won't let me see my daughter. What should I do?

A:  first off you shouldn''t have cheated on your wife. 2nd tell her to grow up. 3th for the sake of your marriage keep it on your pants. god your stupid You chose your wife over your flesh and blood? Your going to regret that decision eventually - esp. if/when your marriage fails. By then, your child may not want anything to do with you. If your wife meant that much to you, you would not have cheated with unprotected sex behind her back and your still sneaking behind her back. Your decision is out of guilt and desperation more than love. I''m sorry, but your daughter should not suffer because you didn''t keep it in your pants. Your wife needs to grow up too and realize that just because she closes her eyes, that it isn''t there. She needs to go to therapy to learn to...
