  1. I gave my mother nothing for Mother's Day. My mother hurt me terribly in many different ways and I do not value her as a mother and refused to be obligated to such a person. She is not someone whom I respect nor is she someone I want my own child to respect. My mother-in-law got a Mother's Day present however, because she IS someone whom I respect and love. Yes, there is that "but she is your mother, the only mother you'll ever have" argument; I can't count how many times I've had to defend myself on this issue.
  2. Very well stated. In my own personal experience, I have come across one person in particular who has a very odd sense of humor; she often laughs at things that aren't intended to be amusing or aren't funny to me. For instance, a couple years ago when I decided I wanted to get my hair cut after growing it out for fourteen years, rather than simply throwing the hair in the garbage, I donated it to Locks of Love. When I told her I donated my hair, she laughed at me and I couldn't understand for the life of me what was so funny about what I had done and what would prompt someone to laugh while discussing childhood cancer? That's just one example of her odd sense of humor. Does anyone else know someone like that?
  3. I do apologize as I should have been more specific. My child is five years old and he prompted the question. He wanted to know what had happened to a relative. I told him that he died and he asked me what "died" means. I wasn't quite sure how to go about answering a question like that to a five-year-old. I want to be truthful but I don't want to scare him. He is my first child as you can probably tell. He's a very intelligent child so he can understand much of what I explain to him but I just don't know how to go about explaining such a thing to him. If he was your child, what would your words be?
  4. How would an Objectivist explain death to a child?
