This one is on a bi-monthly bloom the last two years. Prior to that it saw a lot of strife and movement. My grandparents fought over this plant, and possibly my great grandmother. What I know...Oakland, CA to start, then Santa Cruz, CA...whole lotta hell, then Walnut Creek, CA. Battle between my Mom and Uncle Read more

Oh, let me be really clear here. He was a pedo and a child rapist and everyone knows it. I’m not defending the piece of garbage and I want to make that abundantly clear to the room. I was personally elated when I heard Joe pooped the bed as well. Read more

He may have been acquitted, but it takes a lot of mental gymnastics to believe he didn't rape kids

We’re big MJ fans here, especially earlier stuff (Jackson 5). We’ve talked about how he went a little bit crazy later in life because he never had a normal life, his family was messed up, he owned a theme park in his front yard, etc. But I don’t feel any need to bring up the abuse thing with my 9 or 6 year old.

my girls are 7 and we’ve already had a general talk that adults shouldn’t be touching them. a hug is fine from their grandparent / aunt / teacher if they are ok with it (i guess the teacher greats the kids each morning and you can chose high 5, hug etc) but in general thats about as far as it should go. if you dont Read more

100% agreed. That said, keep in mind that he was acquitted. If the kid repeats any of this to their friends other parents might have fed their kids a different position and it could become a point of contention. Especially these days when things are so easily misconstrued, if you get my drift.

Im assuming you’ve had a “these are your private parts, they are yours, and no one can touch you without your permission, and if they do you say no and tell me” sort of talk? Then just remind kid of that, and say he touched people without their permission? That's the best I got.

I’d explain that sometimes bad people create good things. That the things they create are good doesn’t make the person any better and that the person does bad things doesn’t make their creations any worse.
