You will now meet Shogun. The festival now occurs on the 5th day of the 5th month of the traditional Chinese calendar , which is the source of the festival's alternative name, the Double Fifth Festival. I work with kids all the time with LEGO for an institute. You can now climb it, so hop on and climb up! Nice to meet you!

It sucks real bad because I loved her very much and we had great chemistry and shared similar interests and goals. I miss her terribly but I know it could never work. I had this conversation recently with a young mother and she explained that the lack of discipline thing can be attributed to a number of things. What I mean is that there are too many variables to even pinpoint why she let them turn into that but personally I think you did the right thing.

I mean 3 is a lot for a man to inherit and you did 2 years!!! Anyway, keep your head up Wally and move on having used this as a learning experience. You never know about the kids until you get to experience them with their mom in their own environment. I wish you luck in the dating pool, find ground soon or wait 13 years and reclaim your lady that was a joke. Im in the same boat, but a little deeper.

It was all good, until her placed flooded and she was staying with me while the owner lagged on repairing the place. Things gradually got worst and then I stopped having sex and all. She is Mexican, so it was a never ending bs guilt trip as things tried to work. I tried to work through things and decided to make sure to wear protection to prevent any unwanted issues.

Which continued into the cheating accusations. So she started birth control so I would have sex unprotected regularly. Worst and Best mistake of my life. Now we have a son on the way son. Me and my children are sick of it. After we met, a couple of weeks later, when things were getting hot she explained to me she had 2 kids with her first husband and 1 with her second husband…I was attracted to her from day one.

This woman had me from day one; funny, laughed at my corny jokes, communicatiion, and me and the kids meshed naturally…the youngest daugher is a heart breaker. Let me add that the 2 fathers are active in the childrens lifes. Awesome kids but the dicipline that they lack is wearing me out. The baby, cries at the drop of a hat so often Im beginning to think something is wrong.

They act up, I confront the mom, nothing changes. I asked for a long time what that tat was and she lied every time, i found out on my own.

That she has 3 kids and she is only willing to give me one. U sound real unhappy.. And kids pick up on it first…. There are children involved..

Maybe keep them out of the pic until u figure out what to do??? If u already have an idea of how u want to raise kids with someone and she doesnt fit the bill, then accept it and find someone who does…. BDizzle, I agree with Nia on this one you are letting your emotions hurt your situation. She lied to you because she still feels for that dude and being that he is the most recent father, he can probably say a few magical words and you will be out in the cold with them playing family again.

Use the love of that kid to realize that it may be time for you to start your own family and it is a call of nature for yout o be a dad. Think about it from the outside in, for a second…. A Man versus 2 baby fathers, torn mom with tattoo of another man on her breast the area where you proclaim stuff loud and proud , and 3 kids to win over while their fathers call you a home wrecking punk ass… The odds say run for the hills bro, you gotta love yourself first.

I am merely stating my opinion as you know bdizzle, but I am more than sure that most men reading will agree with me in your situation.

The tattoo is reason enough to peace-out. Go make a deserving woman happy and cut that bird loose. I am the second ex-husband of a woman who is on her way to husband number four and father number three of her three children. Child number two is mine and lives with me thanfully. I raised child number one for five years and still feel sad at not being part of her life anymore.

Soon to be child number three is from a father with two of his own. My ex thinks she wont have any problems handling this mix and has even asked that I send my child back to live with her and her new man.

After that, however, she just lost it and to this day assures me that her guardian angels revealed to her that I had cheated on her from day one. She still looks good at 30, great legs, great ass and aside from plucking her eyebrows recently not a bad face. Does any man need to fix them for her? Commitment and hard work are the only things which will help a relationship succeed. She has no trouble attracting me, just keeping them, or rather staying on board when the going gets tough.

Good luck, but my advice is hire a good lawyer now. Mom in Apt 10b: Im a mother of two not the same father. My children are blessed thank you.

The first man became addicted to drugs I wasnt smart enough to see the signs. The second guy who I thought was the one cheated and had commitment issues. So does that mean I need counseling. I do take some responsibilty as I was not prepared for guys very sheltered and strict up bringing and boys where never a topic I take care of my children and love them..

I have dated other men and I dont introduce them until after a few dates. I take ques on their reaction. My youngest not so much she has the night in shinning armour mind frame. My oldest is going college, she appreciates and acknowledges how difficult it is to be a single parent.

I have a responsiblity to make sure my girls are strong sensible and mature enough to handle themselves out in the world. Dont judge its wrong you dont know that persons situation at all. You only see the surface. And a note if they get STD s its your tax money paying for treatments. Your comment does not solve anything or help anyone. I work in the healthcare field and it hurts the heart to see young men and women get diagnosed with incurable STD. Children need to be educated and adults need to lead in a positve manner.

I have lots of thoughts for women to date men with children. The problems can be endless. Here is my issue I am dating a woman it has been 3 months now. Every time we go out her biological children somehow join in and at times her neighborhood children tag along. I find myself paying for meals for the entire bunch. How should I handle this. I am not a cheapskate. Her son also asked me for money what should I have done and should I have told her about it?

Please run for the hills fast! Where is the father? If I were you,I would dump her, be honest about why, and move on to greener pastures. If the kid asks for money then money has been a conversation about you. Example Why are you seeing this guy mom? The message to the kid is your the walking wallet, not your an important person to her. Money is needed for retirement and paying the bills. If a woman brings the kids on dates, then she has no intention of having sex with you, just the opposite.

Dump her ass, she is using you. I think I am in the same situation. I recently dated a girl with a 3 month old baby. Im a 26yr old professional and she is a 28yr old waitress.

I realized the relationship would be tough but i figures i could handle it. And he does absolutely nothing for the his child. Secondly she complains about me never taking her out but she always has the baby and he screens and cry constantly and its embarrassing in public. I dont have a problem with the baby but we dont get any alone time. Them she had a friend who she had a fling with. She tells this guy everything we do and where we go. Which is weird to me. Lastly she expects me to help with the kid.

I do not have kids so im completely out of my element. I have changed diapers fed and burped him and play with him. This situation is very uncomfortable for me but i really like this girl. What should i do?? You need to get up the courage to leave my friend. There are way too many red flags to count but let me run some off for you:. The child is just too young for the mother to be in a new relationship, that is the main problem here.

It has been a battle, both on his end and my kids to find that bond, mainly because he always put up emotional barriers. Now, 5 years later, things are more normal. My kids have only known him aside from their dad, whom they have not seen in many years due to his addictions, and so they see him as their stepdad now, and he embraces them as his own.

This has been a hard-faught battle, but it was made easier by the absence of the biological father. I advise anyone in similar situation to be patient, learn to parent and discipline your kids on your own, and make sure you can be entirely fiscally responsible for them.

Like I said, a hard-faught battle. Holler at the mom. It sucks but there it is. Batting clean up is a motherf… Be patient, play it manly like a cowboy, and keep your head. We have been messing around for a month or so now. I pretty much just go over to her place to just have sex and talk, she wishes I would come more as I always wait until her mother and son have fallen asleep.

I know im eventually goanna have to stop avoiding them both and say hi. I am not quite sure how to talk to a 3 year old in a cool. Anyway he started dating this girl who has a good job an they were in a relationship after two weeks of us breaking up, now he has moved in with her and her 10yr old son all this has happen within a month. What are your thoughts. Your relationship is easily having more prblems than the one month separation. So family therapy may help.

May be the relationship should have ended years ago. Only you did not know it. My situation is very…thought provoking. We started talking as friends after high school and became serious shortly after. Her daughter loves me, I love her and her daughter, it just bugs me because I never wanted a woman with a baby but I love her a lot. I wanted to start my own family from the ground up. What should I do? Things we envisioned for ourselves growing up often change as we get older and go into the real world.

So she left me to go be with him. Afterwards she claims she wants nothing to do with him. Should I stay or leave and never look back. Not a good foundation for a relationship. Sounds like she just wants someone to help take care of her child. I was on the internet trying to hear someone say this. Reason is because there is a gal who just seems ready to get married by me. She is beautiful and seems tired of single mother highway. Sure i need to marry too and i think i like her.

Its that this girl is always saying how her child is such a problem financially. And i was getting uncomfortable with all her talk. I think she can marry any man who will pay her bills as things stand…. I think what she really needs is not a husband, but some financial plan or something. So it seems i am out. Sorry to hear this. And i think saying kids are such a financial burden — is just some type of excuse anyway. Apparently she was hinting pretty clearly about her needs or wants — financial stability and using her kid as an excuse.

You are too sweet. I was in the Army before — you need to focus on your new life in the Navy and move on. Either way — that lady needs to be able to care for herself and her kids alone before she is ready to date anyway. I dated a girl with three kids 4,5,and1 I was going to marry her in may we had miled problems but not major she broke up with me two weeks ago and now have a new bf I found that weird especially having three children I loved them like they were my own.

Good article, but there are two sides to every story too, especially for those men who do give that woman a chance and accept her kids. One thing I rarely see is the opposite end of it. I have searched and searched for my situation, and yet to even see it. It was inevitable that I would become the asshole. Before I go further, let me just say this: I would never make a woman choose her kids or me. I would always hope she chooses her kids. Now for my story. I dated this woman for 2 years before calling it off for reasons that are about to be revealed.

I met her at work, and before the relationship began, she mentioned she had two older children 16 and 20 and that she had one request of me: I thought it would be no problem. The relationship began very sexual and we ended up falling for each other. We kept helping each other get to better places in our lives.

I would go over her house, spend a lot of time over there with her, and then return back to my place. The absence of her made me want her even more. I thought I was just visiting her and spending time with her. Something happened to my place — caused by mother nature and I was sleeping in my car. She invited me to live with her and I ended up moving in. I was okay with the idea of living with her and her grown kids.

How bad could it be? One was finished up with high school and the other would be soon. As for explaining my relationship with the kids, we got along well enough to have conversations, be in a car together without their mother, and talk, and I tried to help them with anything they needed.

They were good kids, stayed out of trouble, and we all generally got along. To make a long story shorter… her oldest had never held a job in his life, and these kids did not help around the house, they would leave messes in their path, and she would clean up after them, and that was her life.

When I said something to her, she said she never gave her kids responsibility and that they would learn it themselves. So I tried to help another way: Help them find jobs. The oldest admitted to me that he did not want to work and enjoyed his lifestyle of video games at home.

The younger one showed ambition to work but never showed the responsibility of wanting to actually hold a job. Their mother bought them anything and everything they wanted anyway, gave them no incentives to work for anything, and they loved every minute of it, so what was the point of working?

She asked me what the point was of helping her kids get jobs. I explained that I worked and she worked at a young age and that it was important to work in order to make a living. I said it would help them learn some responsibility and give them insight on how to handle their finances. She disapproved of me helping them and it became pointless for me to even try. I gave up trying to do anything, I got quiet in the relationship, no longer put anymore effort into helping her kids or the relationship, and waited patiently for about three or four more months, seeing if things would change.

I became the guy who paid half the rent. I had dropped hints and even tried to help her kids grow up, but the more I tried, the more she would spoil them, baby them, protect them, and prevent them from experiencing the real world. It broke my heart to break up with this woman because I still loved her. I really wanted our relationship to work. I wanted to help her kids grow up so I could spend a normal life with her and not have her grown kids around all the time.

Had she just let her kids grow up and helped me to help her help them, things would have been ok, and our lives would have progressed as normal, but I knew it was hopeless and I ended it. Had I tried to do anything or made anything happen, I would have been the bad guy. She was upset but failed to learn and now I am the bad guy.

In her mind, it will always be her kids. I wanted a life with her and her kids, but not if things were going to continue the way they were going. For weeks after the breakup, I wondered if I made the right choice, questioning, playing scenes over in my head, wondering if I said the right things, communicated properly, and after I sorted it all out, I know I have made the right choice.

This was the way she had raised her kids and this is the way her kids would always be. I am not sure if I will date a woman with kids again, but it was definitely an experience. I am a single mom with a 8 yr old son. I think you sound like a smart man — reasonable, caring, logical and I definitely understand that you would want to help her kids help themselves.

It probably seemed like just any other comment at the time — but it seems significant. At least you had the sense to change your life and get out of that. I have some relatives like this — who were solo parents and babied their child.

That child is now an adult child who still has mom do everything for him. It gave me an awareness of what not to do with my son. I want my son to be fiercely independent — hard-working like me. Have you dated much since then? Good luck and take care. And what a nice man. I read this article a few days ago curious to see how many people find themselves in a similar situation to mine.

She and I have been through our rough patches and, to date, broken up around 4 times in the last 5 years. From that we have had maybe two and a half years together total. The breakdown is this. Her children are all under 4.

This tends to cause us to butt heads not to mention the outside opinions we get. My only explanation and means to justify this being that a majority of the time there were scheduling conflicts and her job has always paid better than mine, so I wound up being stay at home dad for about a year. I am now 24 years old she 1 year my senior and I feel like, simply put, dedicating my life to her will lead me to the lifestyle of a second class citizen.

Every time we have gotten to the point where a major decision in life needs made, my opinion is brutally ignored even if she agrees with me or has come to me with a very wise decision. Now I just wish I had never left….. Her sister in law and boyfriend live with us and are now threatening to leave. Being the person I am, I am having a hard time figuring out what step I need to take.

Sometimes all it takes to get insight on our next step in life is to commit it to writing Lion. You just did that and I want you to read this quote.. Every time we have gotten to the point where a major dec ision in life needs made, my opinion is brutally ignored even if she agrees with me or has come to me with a very wise decision. If that came from me I would know that the decision has to be based on a question do I seek to have a happy and fulfilling life?

I say you walk. I work and go to night school. I was with his father from the time I was 16 til I was Really I hate the idea of just going out to a bar. If the author here will allow you can reach me on email thus; webuzy at yahoo dot com. We started out just hooking up, which led to dating, and we are exclusive. I am the first woman he has dated with a child shes 7, im 27 and hes 28 and he says he is nervous about it but wants to give us a try yet he has yet to offer to do anything involving her.

Because we argue like at least once a month, I am still unsure abt us lasting and havent really thought about his lack of interest until now.

I mean I brought it up before and he has yet to do anything about it but i def dont want to force it so I feel like its a dead end and I should move on but I really like him and he has made it clear he wants to eventually get married and have kids but now right now. Fighting once a month edited: If he has mentally moved on then it would be good reason why he has chosen to stay cold to your child.

If not then another reason could be the general pressure that one feels in a new relationship where a little person is involved.

Media has done a grand job of vilifying men into a place where we have to second guess all motives and for someone in their twenties, saying the right thing to the child may make it a lot to process. This is why I felt the need to write this article because I have been on both sides of the lines child and replacement daddy and I would be lying if I said that it was easy.

You will need to just ask him. I was married at one time with a woman with an Autistic daughter, and i never had any kids of my own. And he needs to understand this situation? Learn to separate yourself from your daughter. The daughters father is going nowhere. Get the boyfriends for yourself not for your daughter. My daughters mother seem to have a similar problem. She is not able to date without mixing up the child.

Sometimes she tells the child to call the boyfriend dad and to call me , of all things, grandfather… which makes me hate and estrange her more. The point is find your position in life. Or no man will stick around the confused scenario. Make it clear that you are being a good mother by remaining cordial with the father and not making it difficult for your child to have a relationship with him.

That could become out of hand or even dangerous. I just want to know whos loss is that then. And how cordial is it supposed to be before the new guy feels uncomfortable?

I could use an opinion. I started dating this girl in April, She was 32 and i was She had two boys. The oldest boy had a some issues with behavior.

Throwing massive fits, always talking back, telling her mom to shut up, and hitting. I left for the summer for a job. So i moved back to be with her. After I moved back I asked her if she had cheated on me.

She said no but she made out with her nanny. Who was 21 and kind of a party girl. I may have been into that sorta thing, being a guy and all. But it bothered me. Not only did I feel like she had cheated on me, but her responsibilities as a parent became untrustworthy to me.

I feel that with kids having issues, it was not a good mix. But I stuck around for two years, I expected the kids tempers to get better, but it never did, and i was afraid it was going to get worse. It seemed like there was more fighting than love between them. So I bailed in jan. Now, 11 months later, I still feel like a dead beat for leaving. I think that you need to find someone that is ready to start a family with you.

Try to move on and date women that love and want children so that if it works out you can be a dad. Good luck, and for the record you are not a dead beat, from where I stand you were unsatisfied with a situation and you left.

You are allowed to do that. There are plenty of families that are more functional that would love to have an awesome new member, or families who would love to be born to you.

Find those, you left her for a reason and it was a good one. Good luck in looking for the non-childed ones i would say. Its takes to people to make stupid decision. There are many reasons why a woman could be a single parent. For every single mother there is a single father. Any judgements to place on the guys? I was put in a situation in my early 20s where someone I cared for and trusted pushed things too far and forced himself on me.

Same goes to say for single dads obviously. I am 36 and dated a single mother of a 7 year old for the last 11 months. The daughter was okay but very spoiled. The problems I had was that I always came second. I understand that the child is the priority, but I was not in the relationship to simply be 2nd to the child all the time. I have needs to.

We recently broke up after going on a much needed vacation but the child came with us. This was 3rd time this has happened and it dawned on me that this was not going to make me happy, ever.

Back to the drawing board for this old man…. It will be the same scenario for kids that genetically belong to you too. Meanwhile the poor guys are missing out since we taught them they make rubbish parents.

When someone has a child — her kid comes first. Unless there is some dysfunctional situation where she is neglecting the child. My mom divorced when I was 9 — from my then highly abusive father — both alcoholics. I think the woman needs to first and foremost take care of herself and her child.

My step dad was jealous of any time I spent with my mom and he treated me like I was a piece of crap. It drove me away from her and them both. She can have ten if she wants. But here is the deal for me. She must be a a good mother to those kids. Dumping kids on me because she is tired is not going to work. Kids are, so to speak, a non factor for me. A woman with no kids but bad attitudes will not cut it with me either.

Well my gf tried not to do that but end up doing it because her baby sitting aid never came and told the manager not to work the same shift so i can take care of her child versa.

That not really made me mad fact that it affected my hours and I am good employee. Anyway I had a talk and there was transition in management i got my hours back but now she stressing out because her other sitter her elderly mom can barely do it. She has hard time walking and has doc appointments. Pretty sure she just got fired because she called in rest of the week and demanded to speak to higher managers up about it. Matter in fact i think had to do with the fact i kinda took nutural stance on the issue as long as work gave me my hours and money i wanted.

I am not willing to sacrifice myself for her kid to that extreme. I think kids are amazing little people who are smarter than you think — so full of life and a lot of fun. But also a huge responsibility — needs patience, love, care, etc. Honestly, I think she should give up the kid for adoption.

She not ready for it. The job I got her. I have found that mature, secure men who know who they are seem to be fine if the woman is also mature, secure and a good mom, etc. Even though they are generally good children.

Children I love and my life revolves around but men get off easy. However, me and my girlfriend are in love? I have a job and a car. I even try to get her a job in order to help her wean off Government AID. She got into argument with manager there that also mine. She told my manager to make so the days i m not working she working so i can take care of her tolder She was suppose to have daycare by this point. This resulted in far less hours then I should be getting working there for a yr now.

I was stuck cleaning diapers. I felt like I was screwed over. I told management this is not what I wished and I wanted to move upwards. Well now, she stuck with less reliable baby sitter her mother that mentally sick and as well as old.

Nothing seems to go as plan fiscally as concerned. The festival was long marked as a cultural festival in China and is a public holiday in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau. The People's Republic of China government established in , however, did not officially recognize Duanwu as a public holiday. Beginning in , the government began to plan for the recognition of three traditional holidays, including Duanwu.

Equivalent and related official festivals include the Japanese holiday of Children's Day Japan. Three of the most widespread activities conducted during the Duanwu Festival are eating and preparing zongzi , drinking realgar wine , and racing dragon boats. Dragon boat racing has a rich history of ancient ceremonial and ritualistic traditions, which originated in southern central China more than years ago.

The legend starts with the story of Qu Yuan, who was a minister in one of the Warring State governments, Chu. He was slandered by jealous government officials and banished by king. Out of disappointment in the Chu monarch, he drowned himself into the Miluo river. The common people rushed to the water and tried to recover his body.

In commemoration of Qu Yuan, people hold dragon boat races yearly on the day of his death according to the legend. They also scattered rice into the water to feed the fish, to prevent them from eating Qu Yuan's body, which is one of the origins of zongzi. A notable part of celebrating Duanwu is making and eating zongzi with other family members. People traditionally wrap zongzi in leaves of bamboo, lotus or banana which give a special aroma and flavor to the sticky rice and fillings.

Choices of fillings vary depending on regions. Northern regions in China prefer sweet or dessert-styled zongzi, with bean paste, dates and nuts as fillings. Southern regions in China prefer savory zongzi, with a variety of fillings including marinated pork belly, chicken, sausage and salted duck eggs. For example, the Guangdong and Hong Kong regions have the tradition of having congee made from 5 different beans. Realgar wine or xionghuang wine is a Chinese alcoholic drink that is made from Chinese yellow wine dosed with powdered realgar, a yellow-orange arsenic sulfide mineral.

Realgar is often used as a pesticide against mosquitoes and other insects during the hot summers, and as a common antidote against poison in ancient Asia. In some regions of China, parents braid silk threads of 5 colors and put them on the their children's wrists, on the day of Duanwu. People believe that this will help keep bad spirits and disease away. Other common activities include hanging up icons of Zhong Kui a mythic guardian figure , hanging mugwort and calamus , taking long walks, and wearing perfumed medicine bags.

Other traditional activities include a game of making an egg stand at noon this "game" implies that if someone succeeds in making the egg stand at exactly All of these activities, together with the drinking of realgar wine, were regarded by the ancients as effective in preventing disease or evil, while promoting health and well-being.

The Taiwanese also sometimes conflate the spring practice of egg-balancing with Duanwu. The sun is considered to be at its strongest around the time of summer solstice, as the daylight in the northern hemisphere is the longest.

The sun, like the Chinese dragon , traditionally represents masculine energy , whereas the moon, like the phoenix , traditionally represents feminine energy. The summer solstice is considered the annual peak of male energy while the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, represents the annual peak of feminine energy.

The masculine image of the dragon was thus associated with the Dragon Boat Festival. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For dragon boating as a sport, see dragon boat.
