Momymonkey: You will get all sorts of opinions on this forum, many that you won't agree with. No one has walked in your shoes. The fact that you opened up and asked for advice is a sign that you love your son.

You have not abandoned your son. Your son is almost an adult and needs a stern hand, not kindergarten tactics. I wish you the very best.

I have never purported to speak for everyone, as you frequently feel the need to. If you are unhappy reading my posts, then don't. Carry on.

And have a great day!

If you are going to quote from something it is proper to cite your source. Makes you look less "know it all" if you get what I mean.

And...what did I quote without a source?

Yeah you have a great day too. Try to be nicer next time. If you quit paraphrasing everyone all of the time you would come across as more mature and your point of view would have more validity. Cutting and pasting is one thing but to misquote someone is wrong and, to me, immoral.

I have gone through this thread a few times and am trying to find the "paraphrasing" you are referring to in Blink's message?

I neither cut and pasted nor misquoted. The quotes I posted were directly taken from YOUR posts here using the quote feature. Are you now claiming those were not your words?

Look up the definition of paraphrasing - "restatement of text or passage using other words..." (wikipedia).

When Blink paraphrases me she conveniently leaves out important words and inserts her own interpretation. If I had to opt I would prefer the "cut" and "paste" method of quoting someone - at least it would be accurate. Paraphrasing while handy at times when we talk verbally, can be quite dangerous and libelous when used in written communication. I have a problem with people who twist other people's words around to their advantage. People who do this usually are sly but of low intelligence, in my opinion.
