I was "unfriended" by my 25 year old niece for making comments on her clearly drunken public display of idiotic disgusting behavior. I told her parents to make sure the pics came off facebook. Public drunkenness is common on that side of the family and I feel it has to stop.

This aunt should know that saying one would "have his baby/babies" is extremely common slang for the current generation. It's not to be taken literally; it's just an expression. As for the video, the younger generation has a much more lax attitude toward sexuality and things of a sexual nature- it's the culture they grew up in. The only worries the aunt in this case should have are if the niece's Facebook profile is public. The things on her profile are normal for her generation, but colleges and employers wouldn't think highly of them.

I loved the comment about the new game of checkers. My dad also had Alzheimer's disease and I learned that one must enter that person's world because they can no longer enter yours. When you do that, communication of a new kind becomes possible and the disease is a gift. It gives loved ones time and insight and a new way of knowing the person.

WOW! That is all I can say to the person who wants to call CPS because a couple choose to keep to themselves. I cant believe anyone would call CPS without a sign of abuse simply because the couple choose to live a life without their neighbors. Nothing noted here says bad parenting, it says to me that they dont feel the need that everyone else does to be best friends with their neighbors. To even get cps to check you would have to come up with something better than that. Youre being nosey and a problem starter. In the end youll just make your neighbor dislike you even more
