Would you tell one half of a couple that the other half was cheating? In this hypothetical, either person A has told you, or their cheating partner has, or you walked in and found them... in short, you have solid knowledege of said cheat.

I would, because I'd want to know, especially if we aren't using condoms. However, I'd probably tell me in a location where there are no pokers, firearms or knives in easy reach.

If the answer is no, then why not?

Mummy's little Lolita: The 11-year-old girl whose beauty treatments cost £300 a month to make her look like Barbie
She wore her first set of false eyelashes at eight, and her beauty treatments cost £300 a month. A sick abuse of an 11-year-old? 'No', insists Sasha's mother, 'I just want her to be famous...'


At the tender age of 11, this kid looks like a pre-teen porn star.

In the forthcoming documentary, Jayne takes Sasha to a major agency, in the hope that she will be signed up.

The model booker says a vehement 'no', horrified by her portfolio, and tells Jayne that clients want their child models to look like children, and that for this sort of career success she would have to stop bleaching Sasha's hair and encouraging her to wear plastic nails. Jayne refuses to comply.


Frankly, I want to hose the kid off, dress her in play clothes and tell her to go fall out of a couple trees. I get the feeling mama wants to relive what her childhood should have looked like according to her. Daughter apparently doesn't know there are any other options.

Ask Sasha how she sees herself and she replies: 'Blonde, pretty, dumb - I don't need brains.' Her mum laughs her head off at this, proud that the child is so like her.


Would you want to see a kid raised like this?

Here's another one.

Like any proud mother, Ashley Hughes wants to do the best for her little girl.

She works at five different cleaning jobs to help 15-year-old daughter Emma achieve her dream.

Which is...to be a surgically enhanced glamour model just like Jordan.

Mrs Hughes has provided nothing but support for Emma's ambitions to follow in the footsteps of her improbably-shaped heroine.

She has already spent £15,000 on salon treatments and is putting money aside for a breast enlargement operation for her daughter when she turns 18.

Before that happens she is trying to raise £8,000 for tooth veneers to enhance Emma's smile, while she also pays for weekly pole dancing lessons.

I'm so glad my parents are sane.

Couple is married with 3 kids. They have agreed not to have more, and she is on birth control. Wife starts gaining weight, to the point where hubby's guy friends ask if "Melissa" is pregnant. "Jack" says no, but later asks Melissa if she is pregnant. She tells him no, it's the BC pill. A month later, Melissa calls Jack and tells him they have a girl on the way. She oopsed him and lied- she's now 5 months pregnant. The kicker? This is the SECOND time she's done this. Opinions?

Other info- she was supposed to get her tubes tied after Oops 1.0 and did not. I gather he's going to get a vasectomy.

You and your spouse are at home and have just collected the mail from your box. In it is a package addressed to your sixteen-year-old, who is out at band practice. It has hazmat stickers on it. You can think of no reason why your child should be receiving this, so you decide to open it and risk the ten years in prison for tampering with the mail. Inside is 10 pounds of ammonium nitrate which was purchased on Ebay. Warning bells go off in your head, and a quick google search tells you it's used in improvised explosive devices. Your child doesn't have any legitimate need for this. Do you:

A) Call the cops immediately?
B) Talk it over with your spouse?
C) Call the hospital and take the kid in to see a shrink?
D) Got to school, collect child and talk?
E) Make a panicked post to an LJ parenting community?

The broader question could be, at what point would you call the police and turn in a family member.

I am interested in debating topics of interest on a weekly basis. People may post, invite their friends to post and suggest topics to be discussed as you please. You do not have to be on my friendslist to debate, though I will be happy to add you.

The rules-
1) All posters must be civilized. Obscenity and insult should not take the place of wit.
2) Anonymous posters are not permitted, nor are sockpuppets and trolls.
3) "God wills it" is not a defensible argument. If you are explaining a belief, that is one thing. Trying to shut down debate with this is not permitted.
4) Invoking either Godwin's or Snacky's Laws is only acceptable in discussions of WWII or high school.

First topic- Rehabilitation vs Retribution.

Should prisons focus on rehabilitation or retribution? Should we encourage job training and skill building, or concentrate on punishing offenders?
