Re: Need your opinion asap re- my friend

Re: What are you wearing V2

Black shorts and a gray and black tank top. I will put my black cardigan and some sneakers (or rain boots if it rains!) back on before I head back to school for my night class.

Re: Discipline or abuse?

As it has been said there is definitely a point where "discipline" crosses the line and becomes abusive or it was intended to be abusive all along. Unfortunately, abuse gets downplayed in families a...
