just in time teaching

It’s just so wild to me.how people think of children as mysterious beings and there’s been and will always be a ton of debate over how to rear them. But they really are just regular people, who just happen to still be small. If you teach them to be reasonable they can be reasoned with. Just like you, they can be calmed down by addressing their actual anxieties. They lack the emotional depth and reasoning skills to make certain decisions and for this parents should guide them. But you just treat them well and develop mutual respect with them and you’re fine. They’ll do silly stuff sometimes, they’ll get mad at you for not letting them do absurd things like eat 20 cookies at a time, but you really just have to treat and teach them well and generally they don’t just want to make your life hard for no reason. I have years of experience with children and they’re not a puzzle. They’re just like you, they see all the same things as you, but they lack the emotional ability to process like adults can and need some guidance. It’s not that deep.

Who the hell was that first fuckboi who suggested that Sherlock is in madly love with Irene after reading A scandal in Bohemia. I wanna make a time machine someday just to go back in time and hit him on the head with the compact volume of ACD canon.

Being pregnant with Chris Evans' baby:

Originally posted by chrisevanshh

Some parts of the pregnancy are slightly exaggerated to give more humor.

• It’s no secret, Chris has said many times he wants to be a dad and he’s looking forward to it. So, when you stand in the bathroom with the positive tests in hands, you really aren’t stressed about telling him. You’re quite excited to see his face because you love kids too.
• When you tell him you’re pregnant, he looks at you with wide eyes because he has no idea how to react: he’s probably thinking of how much he wants to kiss you for the rest of his life or asking you to marry him all over again, or even make another baby right now!
• Though, it’s not long before he reacts when he sees the five pregnancy tests. He laughs so happily as he spoons you in his arms that you can’t help but giggle and he keeps telling you he loves you so much.
• He can’t even stop kissing you or your tummy.
• The first days after the announcement, he keeps giggling with you and asks himself if it’s a dream or not. He also tries not to freak out and get nervous.
• Your families are overly happy to hear the news.
• His mother cries at this moment because her baby boy will have his own baby.
• Chris worries about his ability to be a good father, but you kiss his insecurities away and tell him he is a great father already because he wants to be a dad for so long and that’s also something he gotta learn with time and with you.
• He takes care of you all day. Every day.
• You can wake him up at 2 in the morning to eat your favorite meal.
• You both eat Starbust’s jelly beans right after.
• Chris plans your baby’s first trip to Disney World secretly. He buys everything he needs to make sure they will love everything related to Disney!
• He is unsurprisingly protective.
• Chris grins like an idiot for hours whenever he hears the heartbeat of your baby and when he feels their very first kicks.
• - “Stop carrying me everywhere, Chris. I can walk. I’m pregnant, not sick.”
  - “I know, but I don’t want you to take a risk.”
• Chris is here for you every step of the way and assures you he loves this baby and you more than anything else.
• He realizes that marrying was the best choice he made you when your hormones are going wild.
• One day, you catch him purchasing some Patriots baby gift sets and clothing. You basically have to stop him before he can buy everything related to his favorite team in the NFL store.
• He’s still currently trying to find a Tom Brady bodysuit with “Baby Evans” flocked at the back.
• You call your mother every time something new happens during your pregnancy and when she says everything is fine, Chris calls Lisa to double check.
  - “Did you seriously call your mum?”
  - “Sweetheart, it’s just to be sure.”
• Chris smiles every time you say you look too big, but he thinks you are gorgeous as ever with this baby bump. Because you carry life, so nothing is more beautiful.
  - “Chris, why are you even staying with me? I look like a potato.”
  - “You are perfect and this the most beautiful moment of our lives. It’s our baby inside.”
  - “Okay, I trust you this time. But only because you’ve also gained weight.”
  - “That’s my gi… Wait, what?!”
• Chris sings Disney songs every night to your baby before sleeping. Let’s be honest, he does this all the time.
• He wants to have a boy first just to teach him how to prank you in the future.

Bonus:
• He is in-between a mix of stress and joy when you go into labor. He’s there for you, though.
• You almost crush the bones of his hand when you push.
  - “Never again! I will never let you touch me ever again, Evans! Heard me?!”
  - “Don’t exaggerate, it’s- OUCH!”
  - “Please, Mrs. Evans, stop threatening your husband. You have to push!”
• Chris cries and smiles when he holds your baby for the first time.

I get that a lot of people really like the “we need to consider the consequences of science” theme in fiction, and I do as well. 

However, I get very uncomfortable that innovation that can be twisted into something evil, must necessarily and inherently be evil. 

Fitz did not create The Framework. He created a Virtual Reality training exercise, in order to help train new agents without anyone getting hurt. (Which, as far as I recall, was an approved and sanctioned SHIELD project that Jemma knew about and liked.) And we currently have Virtual Reality technology that exists in our world, and as I understand people are using it for all kinds of really good things:

  • helping terminal patients get to do things on their bucket list
  • help people terrified of flying disconnect from the world 
  • create beautiful fictional worlds for people to immerse themselves in as a way to enjoy their time (just a step above 3D movies??)
  • possibly teaching first responders how to deal with really traumatic situations

And those are just current applications that people are trying to improve and develop. There are TONS more applications that involve HELPING and improving people’s lives. Because you can potentially create an evil Matrix with virtual reality doesn’t mean the technology is inherently evil. 

If I recall correctly, Fitz’ job in SHIELD is to keep creating things that protect SHIELD agents and improve the way that SHIELD runs. Nobody complains about the containment module he created to help protect Inhumans? Or any of the other countless things he’s invented to help SHIELD? (Even though I’m certain if someone thought hard enough, they would be able to find an evil version of all of those.) The reason Radcliffe was able to build AIDA is because Fitz developed a realistic prosthetic hand for Coulson to improve his life. Should he not have done that? 

Yes, of course, it’s important to consider the consequences of the technology you create. But blaming a character for having someone else completely make a new, evil version of their technology with a mystical evil book that didn’t exist when the character made that technology is a bit far-fetched. 

Give me all the Dami and Cass friendship Headcanons

- Give me Dami and Cass sparring together and Cass winning quite easily and Dami demanding a rematch but in reality he just likes spending time with his big sister.

- Give me Cass teaching Dami to dance, teaching him to express his anger and hate and misery through movements of the body. Give me Dami and Cass doing ballet when they get bored on patrol and give me them beating up a criminal while humming Swan Lake.

- Give me Cass being the Batgirl to Dami’s Robin (except they don’t fall in love, because ew). Let them run across rooftops together in costume and becoming more fearful and respectful then Batman.

- Give me Cass and Dami as the Batmen of Gotham City. Give them monitoring different areas of the city only to meet up at the end of patrol and go out for their favourite ice cream, still in costume.

- Give me Dami teaching Cass Arabic once she learns English. Give me Cass becoming good enough at Arabic that she and Dami sometimes forget others can’t speak it and end up explaining a plan to only the two of them while everyone else watches, extremely confused.

- Give me them becoming friends over their love for fighting. Their similar backgrounds and how they see the Batfamily as their only family. Give me them going to each other when they have nightmares. Give me them then going to someone else when they have nightmares together.

- Give me someone waking up to find Dami and Cass curled up like kittens on their bed.

- Give me Dami talking very highly of his sister, Cassandra Wayne, to his friends because she is the best dancer and one of the best fighters in the Wayne family, and that’s much better than any of his brothers.

- Give me Dami’s pets loving the extra attention they get when Cass is around. Give me Dami teaching Cass about all his animals and what they do, and telling her proudly how he came to save them.

Just give it all to me!

anonymous asked:

Can I request Yen'fay for the Morgan having nightmares prompt?

(Want to change the name? Use this!)

You had long since fallen asleep before he came to bed. He had finally broken your habit of staying awake past a decent hour, and now found himself coming to bed later than you.

He was proud of that, of course, a gentle smile on his lips as he came beside you. He slipped into the futon silently, his hand brushing your cheek.

Yen’fay’s head barely touched the pillow beside you, before the sound of the doors sliding open stopped him. Morgan’s quiet sobs caught his attention, and he leaned back up, spotting the flash of white hair just like his.

“Morgan.” He spoke quietly, addressing the boy that wobbled up to your side of the futon. He sniffed loudly, looking up at Yen’fay with tears in his eyes. “My son, what is the matter?”

1D- Larry- Do they watch and cry like us

Okay I was watching some old clips and got emotional because, like others, I miss them doing weird stuff and just being normal in public.

I don’t wanna talk about their relationship, if they were together or they are or not but I wanna sit and admire their friendship that they used to have.

I feels so bad about the changed scenario and sometimes I think do they even watch and feel bad about how things changed.

Do they even cry over those memories…..

Then……

I don’t know them personally but one can see the beautiful bond they shared in the starting years. 

They could have been more close to each other.

They could have enjoyed those years more because we know how much they enjoyed being around each other.

I don’t wanna type any reason to say why they behaved like this… like strangers…. 

If I will ever get a chance to ask them one question, I will simply ask

“Do they even watch these videos and moments and cry….?”

but we witnessed most beautiful friendship of our time. But we also witnessed most hurting days of their lives.

In love with their love

(I started with some original gifs and moments but that post accidentally got deleted. So I made this shorter version of my original post…. 

The older one was more deep but depressing….)

It's fluff, I swear.

A/N: There’s some mention to one of my ask fics (the star gazing & pillow fort one with motorcycle Betty) that may confuse you a little if you didn’t read it

“This is so cliché, I love it.” Veronica’s laugh bubbles out of her mouth as she reaches out to tangle her fingers with her girlfriend’s.

“I figured you would enjoy a classic go karts and mini golfing date.” Betty smiles at Ronnie, “I liked the idea of taking it a little old school for our five year anniversary.” Veronica tugs impatiently on her hand, pulling her towards the entrance.

“You make us sound old when you say it like that, B.” Betty just shrugs as she follows behind her girlfriend, admiring her curves and the perfect swell of her ass. When she finally tears her eyes away from the view, she catches sight of Veronica’s pleased smirk and rolls her eyes playfully, a soft pink tint coating her cheeks.

“We’re only twenty-three Ronnie. There’s plenty of years ahead of us to look forward to.”

“Well,” Veronica turns around, walking backwards as she draws out the word, “What I’m looking forward to right now is beating your ass in go karts and mini golf.” She winks at her before turning back around and tugging Betty up to walk alongside her.

When they reach the kiosk, Veronica starts to dig through her purse before her girlfriend stops her, handing the man the necessary amount of money for karting and mini putt. Ronnie pouts as they walk towards the race track.

“I wanted to pay.” Betty just shakes her head, a fond smile playing on her lips.

“Trust me, you don’t need to pay for anything with the amount of…gifts you gave me. The one I woke up to, the one in the shower, before and after breakfast. Not to mention the amazing antique typewriter you got me.” Veronica’s pout turns into a smug smile as they stand in line.

“I’m surprised you’re even walking straight.” The blush that spreads across Betty’s cheeks earns her a beautiful laugh.

“If we’re being honest..it’s taking everything in me to walk normal.” Veronica laughs again, the sound sending Betty’s heart fumbling.

“Hey! Don’t laugh at me, this is your fault.” She whines, her bottom lip jutting out.

“Awwww, I’m sorry baby.” Ronnie coos, a mischievous twinkle in her eye. “I’ll kiss it better when we’re somewhere more private.” Betty’s face somehow flushes a darker shade of pink as she listens to her girlfriend’s giggles and watches her get into one of the many awaiting karts before she shakes herself out of her stupor. Reaching into her front right pocket, she sighs in relief when her fingers brush velvet. Her heart races, yet she feels serene as she follows Veronica.

*

“I can’t believe I lost. I literally work with cars.” Betty groans, following a grinning Veronica.

“Well believe it babe and get ready to lose at mini golf too.” Betty just smiles and wraps her arm around her girlfriend’s shoulders.

“Care to place a wager, gorgeous?” Ronnie side eyes her, head tilting in curiosity.

“What are the stakes?”

“Winner gets a lap dance and loser has to clean up Cate’s potty accidents for a week.” She pauses as she lets out a little laugh “I can’t believe you convinced me to name our dog Cate Blanchett.” Veronica’s arm snakes around her waist, snuggling into her side as they walk towards the kiosk.

“I mean, you get to name our next dog Nancy Drew so I’d say it’s even. And you’re so on. I hope you have a song in mind, ‘cause I want that dance as soon as we get to the apartments.” Betty shakes her head, grabbing their clubs and balls.

“You’re overconfidence will be your down fall, beautiful.” Veronica just laughs, accepting the club and ball handed to her.

*

“Don’t stand there and laugh at me!” Veronica whines. They’re on the fifth hole and Betty has discovered, to her amazement, that Ronnie has no idea how to play.

“I’m so sorry,” she trails off into a few more quieter laughs, “you were just so confident that you’d beat me and-” a snort escapes her mouth, “and you don’t even know how to swing the club.” Her girlfriend just huffs, pouting for the second time that night.

“Okay, okay, c'mere. I’ll teach you.”

Slowly, Veronica makes her way towards Betty and comes to a stop in front of her.

“You don’t need to be so stiff.” She whispers, pressing herself against Ronnie’s back and resting her hands on her hips. She gives them a light squeeze, smiling at the hitch in Veronica’s breath.

“Bend your knees slightly….Good. Now,” Betty moves her hands to rest on top of her girlfriend’s, moving them into the correct positions on the putter.

“This is where your hands should be.” Veronica nods, trying hard to focus on the mini lessons, but finding it difficult with the warmth of Betty against her.

“You don’t need to swing so hard. Just like this.” She swings their arms gently, watching as the ball rolls through the miniature windmill and into the hole on the other side.

“Okay?” She nods again, letting out a breath she didn’t know she was holding when Betty finally pulls back.

They move onto the next hole and Veronica tries once before asking Betty to show her again.

(Betty wins, but Veronica doesn’t mind giving her favorite girl a lap dance. Especially when she knows it’ll end in her favor.)

(She might’ve minded cleaning up after the puppy if she wasn’t so cute.)

*

They walk hand in hand towards Betty’s car, her free hand brushing her pocket to make sure the slight bulge is still there.

“This was fun.” Veronica watches as her girlfriend nods in agreement.

“Do you have any song requests for me when we get home?” Betty opens the passenger side door to the jeep for her before wandering around the front to get into the driver’s seat.

“Uhm actually…we have one more place to go.” The car starts and she pulls out. Glancing over towards the girl in the seat next to her, she notices Veronica already looking at her and her gaze darts back to the road as Ronnie continue to study her curiously.

“You seem nervous…Where are we going? What are we doing?” There’s a sudden gasp and Betty’s eyes flicker towards her in panic before Veronica continues.

“Has this all been a ploy to gain my trust just so you could take me out into the woods and murder me?” It all comes out in a rushed breath and the absurdity of the statement startles a laugh out of Betty.

“No, nothing like that.”

“Then where are we going?”

“You’ll see.”

*

They drive into a familiar abandon parking lot and Veronica’s eyes widen in concern.

“Lovers Look Out?”

The car shuts off and Betty turns in her seat to ease her girlfriend’s qualms, her hand instinctively reaching out to grip Ronnie’s own.

“I know you probably don’t associate this place with good memories, but I was hoping to change that while we’re in town.”

She just nods at Betty’s words, trying to stop herself from thinking back to that part of their past.

“Hey, it’s okay.” She looks up at the soft tone in Betty’s voice.

“I promise I won’t leave this time. I’m never leaving you, okay?” A nod and Betty is leaning across the center console to pull Veronica into a gently kiss. Foreheads pressed together as lips barely brush.

*

They’ve been laying quietly in the field for a few minutes, in a blanket fort eerily similar to the last one, before either one of them breaks the silence.

“You see that there?” Betty asks quietly, finger tracing the constellation as Veronica snuggles deeper into her side and nods.

“That’s Adromeda. She was an Ethiopian princess, daughter of Cepheus and Cassiopeia. Her mother, Cassiopeia, loved to brag about how beautiful she was and had dared to say she was even more beautiful than the queen of the gods, Juno-”

She listens, enraptured as her girlfriend points to the many different pictures the stars make up, telling the stories in a way that leaves her in a trance. Eventually, they drift away from actual constellations and to made up stories and fairytales.

“That one reminds me of our fur baby back home.” Veronica murmurs, still pressed into her girlfriend’s side. Betty huffs out a laugh, looking at the bundle of stars Ronnie is pointing out. They settle down into another comfortable bout of silence before Betty is sitting up, pointing to a specific star in the sky. It’s much brighter than all the other ones and it’s intense blue hue has Veronica wondering how she hadn’t noticed before.

“That star right there, that’s your star.” She looks over to the girl sat next to her. Noticing how she’s practically shaking. Shaking with what? She doesn’t know.

“What do you mean that’s my star?”

She digs into her back pocket and grabs her wallet, pulling out a folded up sheet of laminated paper. Betty hands it to Veronica, watching nervously as she opens it.

“You did not name a star after me, Betty. That’s so gay.” Ronnie teases fondly before noticing what the name of the star is.

“Why’d you name it ‘Veronica Cooper-Lodge’?” She questions, her eyes drawing away from the paper in her hands to the kneeling girl in front of her. She notices the small black box gripped tightly in Betty’s hand and her lips part in a silent gasp as she realizes what’s happening.

“Veronica, when you first swept into Pop’s wearing that ridiculously attractive, stupid cape, I had knew then and there that you would utterly ruin me.” She pauses as she takes in a shaky breath, eyes never tearing away from her girlfriend’s gaze. “And when you kissed me at tryouts, I realized how..screwed I was. Because somehow you had wormed your way into my heart and broke it, all within a week of me knowing you. And yet, you were also the one to mend it and I’ve never met anyone who had, has, so much power over my heart.” They’re both crying and it takes everything in her to stay put and finally get the words that have been crowding her brain since they met, and not to reach out and hold Veronica.

“I’ve never found someone who just…gets me like you do. We’re soulmates, we fit together in all the right ways, similar and somehow different enough to compliment each other. Fate threw us together for a reason and who am I to deny destiny?” Betty pauses to shakily open the box, the ring glinting in the moonlight. Their eyes don’t stray from each other.

“Veronica Lodge, will you go full dark, no stars and marry me?” ~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~ AHSJDNEKSIJE MY HEART MY LORD FUKDKE. THANK YOU

My friend is a sexuality + gender studies minor, and she likes to act like bc she's taken some classes, she knows more than anyone else. There are times i just get so frustrated because she'll try to "teach" me about the things she learned like im a child who doesnt know anything, or use her minor as some kind of pass that makes her a "special cis" or smth. Im trans and have been extensively researching gender/gender identity since I was 13 and she's as cis as they come and ugh it's frustrating

anonymous asked:

Hi! I'm an English major and obviously I get that whole "What are you going to do if you're not teaching?" racket all the time. I just wanted to let you know that when that starts to get to me, reading your articles and seeing what you're doing really gives me a lot of hope that I can turn writing into a career the way you have. You're really talented and funny, and it's just nice to see someone I admire doing something I love.

The people who say that are afraid you’ll be successful at something you love because they’ve already preemptively abandoned their passions for the sake of stability. The truth is that there are tons of stable writing jobs out there and very few really good writers to fill them. When I say “good writers” I don’t mean people with natural talent, I mean the people who are willing to put the work in to keep writing, finish what they write and also willing to find the flaws in what they write so they can make something better the next time. You’d be shocked how many “writers” don’t have the patience for that. 

I think I finally figured out why I love Mon-El so much

I’m going to start out with saying that Mon-El is nowhere close to being perfect. He has his flaws and he has his past (which I hope we get to find out more about in the next few episodes). I can see he has low self-worth. He is ashamed of things from his past. All of that resonates with me deeply. What I love though is that we get to see this person start from the bottom and work his way up. He doesn’t want to be a hero at first, he was in complete self preservation mode. He has his setbacks and he falls down. But he always moves forward again. I get to see this person grow and learn and become stronger emotionally and mentally and see him rise to becoming a hero. I see that it is possible to rise above your past. And that gives me hope. It tells me that I too can rise to become something amazing.

As a survivor of sexual and emotional abuse (from a very young age), I was in complete self preservation mode for years. My brain literally could not handle the trauma, so it blocked out those memories. For years I didn’t remember until something triggered my memories and then when I remembered, I denied it. I felt shame and guilt because I did nothing to stop it. To this day I panic at the thought of being put in another situation like that because I just froze each time I was assaulted and did nothing. Does that mean I will always become immobile if I feel threatened? I don’t know. But it took another FIVE years to finally admit that something terrible happened to me and another two to come forward about it. Now I’m seeking help and I’m making progress. But it’s slow and I have my own set backs. I fall and feel ashamed for not being stronger.

As I said, seeing Mon-El struggle is just inspiring because it’s so human and real. It’s a damn hard fight when you’re fighting against yourself. The internal struggle is very real and the truth is that it does take time to get something. Being told once to change won’t make someone automatically change. It can take years to get rid of negative traits and sometimes it will always be a fight. But Mon-El shows that it is possible to learn and adapt. It is possible to become better.

I’ve said this before, I think Mon-El’s relationship with his parents gives a strong vibe of emotional abuse. No one should say that they would run from their parents. To have that fear says so much. I have that fear of my stepfather. I’ve witnessed him be physically abusive toward my mother. I’ve witnessed him get so angry that he has almost hit me on several occasions. I know that fear. Now, they may not be, but that is the vibe I get and Mon-El’s line alone should raise red flags about his parents. I hope the show expounds on that because it’s something so real. The show already touches on deep topics and for them to touch on that would not only resonate with so many, but bring light to a very big issue not many shows (at least that I watch) touch on.

Mon-El shows that even with a bad past, that does not determine your future. You get to decide where you go. His journey to becoming a superhero is inspiring. He didn’t have good role models growing up (the formative years were those things are essential) and he was surrounded by things he didn’t agree with. Now, though, he has someone (Kara and team Supergirl/DEO) that is telling him he can be an amazing person. He can be a hero. He just needs to believe in himself. The first step in my own recovery was believing I could recover. And the emotional toll that took on me was literally breathtaking. It’s staggering to finally see that maybe what everyone else is saying about me is true, maybe I can be someone. Maybe my past demons can be silenced. That is the story that I see and that I love.

Which is why I think it hurts me so much when people can’t just open their eyes and look at him as an actual person (yes, even though he is fictional) and see that what’s on the surface is just that. I look like a stone cold bitch on the surface that’s brusque with people and probably has the worst attitude. While in actuality, I’m anxiety ridden and afraid of the world and everyone in it but has the deepest yearning to help others in need and puts everyone else before myself. We haven’t gotten any deep emotional scenes from Mon-El, not like with all the other characters in the show (ie. Kara, Alex, J'onn, Winn, and even Maggie). We don’t get to hear what he’s feeling. We only see fleeting moments of his internal battle. He has never broken down over anything he has been through. People judge him off of his external self when the real person that matters hasn’t really been shown that much. When he has shown it, it’s always when no one is looking or paying attention.

This post got away from me, sorry. I just needed to say this. Mon-El’s story is one that shows even the most unlikeliest of people can become a hero. Even with the worst background, you can rise above it and become better. Be better. Your past does not dictate your future. His story is something I have never seen in comics (at least the ones I’ve read). Especially in the Superman verse. Both Clark and Kara had amazing role models that built them up. Mon-El didn’t have that. But we get to see him show us that that doesn’t matter. You can teach an old dog new tricks. It just takes time and patience.

That is the story I love. That is why I love Mon-El. He isn’t perfect and I don’t want him to be. I can relate to him. I can see myself in him. Which means if he can become a superhero then I, too, can do amazing things.

y'all teach your kids that gender is naturally fluid, much like sexuality is, and that there is a difference between what you perceive yourself as and what you were born with, and that you can be whatever you are comfortable with being

So I’m a lifeguard at a local pool, and at this pool we have various services we offer. Aquatic fitness programs, swimming lessons, stuff like that. Because of this, we have a very strict schedule so that the pool can function for everyone who uses it.

However, there are still a surprising amount of people who cannot accept the fact that other people get to use the pool now. Just the other day I had to tell a swimmer that lane swim time was over and that it was time for swimming lessons for the little kids:

Me: Excuse me ma'am, but lane swim is over now, we need to take this lane out now.

Swimmer: You can’t take out the lane, where will I swim?

Me: Well, lane swim is actually over now, everyone needs to leave so that we can teach lessons.

Swimmer: But I’m not done! Can’t I just stay in while you teach them?

Me: No ma'am, if there’s someone swimming there needs to be a guard on duty, and all the guards will be teaching.

Swimmer: Can’t you just teach and guard at the same time?

Me: No ma'am, teaching while guarding impairs my ability to guard, which is not only a safety hazard but also illegal.

Swimmer: Unbelievable! This is terrible service! I pay for my membership and I deserve good treatment!

She kept ranting at me as she left, but I was busy trying to corral six rowdy kids. The kicker was that while she obviously really wanted to keep swimming, she had shown up with only 15 minutes left in the slot. We also have several big schedules posted around the pool.

Hello. So, I have a mutt my family rescued from a shelter, and he's been with us for almost two years. He's an amazing dog, but he runs away. A lot. And by a lot, i mean that we've all lost count of how many times he's bolted out the door. There have been several occasions where he was almost hurt, or could have been killed. I worry about him all the time, we all do. I've done research, but still can't find a solution or a reason for his behavior. He seems to think its a game. Any advice?

Dogs do things that benefit them. So why is he running outside? What does he get from it that he doesn’t get otherwise? Perhaps he enjoys the exercise and/or the attention? At some point he was indirectly rewarded, whether it was just by getting to run, smell his favorite tree, chase a squirrel, or visit the neighbor. Keeping him exercised and stimulated will help a lot, but overall you will need to train him to wait somewhere while you open the door. 

This can be a rug, couch, bed, or anything that can be noticeably different on the floor. You just need to teach him to wait at his “place”. Every time you reach to open the door and he gets up, put him back in his place. This isn’t going to work immediately, training is always done in baby steps. 

First you’ll have to train him what it means to go to his place, then you can move onto having him stay in that place while you walk around. Always return with a treat or praise when you give a stay command. Never call a dog out of a stay as the reward, because then you’ll have a dog that is spring loaded waiting to be called. Now that the dog knows where his place is, and how to wait there, you move on to jiggling the door handle (baby steps!) If he gets up, just give his place command again, and retry. If he lets you jiggle the handle and stays put, walk to him and give him the reward. Once you’re finally able to open the door with him staying put, you can move onto someone knocking from the other side.

It will take a long time, don’t expect this to work in a day. If all else fails, put him away before you open the door 🤷

Girls can be just friends with boys but why would she want to. Everything would be smooth sailing for three months until a very minimal and normal interpersonal issue arises and his enflamed male ego will cause him to react in the ass backwards unemotional way our society conditions boys to respond to conflict and suddenly the friendship will end bc he didn’t know how to take accountability and say something simple like “sorry I keep eating the last of the McNuggets without asking even though you paid that’s real rude of me”
