My daughter once asked me to call the mom of a friend who was due to come over for pizza. She said this friend picked on her for ‘talking too much’ and it made her feel bad. I wanted to respect her wishes and show her that I take her concerns seriously, so I called the mom and tried to make light of the situation. However, the mom then told me that the daughter had plans and couldn’t join us for pizza and that was the last I heard from them. In one way, I think that perhaps they weren’t a great match, but I wonder if I should have even gotten involved (my daughter is 7).

"Listen, you brat" – tempers are frayed – "I know I promised a trip to the ice-cream place, but Auntie died two days ago and we are too upset, too busy. We'll go another time."

In the emotional-manipulation game, I've played my trump card. Now George plays his: "I don't give a fuck that Auntie died."

I stare at my eldest child, who meets my apoplectic gaze with blank defiance, and the thought hits me like a saucepan to the head: I don't like you.

“If your kids walk in on you and your partner having sex do you tell the truth about what you're doing? Or do you lie ? Does their age play a factor in what you decide to tell them?” These questions, from Circle of Moms member Sara D., bring a topic that typically is whispered about in many homes into the open.

Sara confesses that “I’d probably lie,” but many moms report that they’ve gone to great – if not spontaneous – lengths in creative storytelling to avoid having to make the moment into a sexual education class . “It’s certainly a teaching moment, LOL,” adds Sara D. “But I think my husband would lie .”

Let’s face it, you know the day is going to come, that day when your grade school-aged kid marches into your bedroom in the middle of the night. Says Cheryl Z.: " Kids have a sixth sense [about] when their parents are going to have sex. It doesn't matter how deeply he is sleeping or if it is during his morning or afternoon nap or the middle of the night; I swear my son knows when daddy puts the moves on mommy and he does his best to stop it. Last night at 2 am he woke up out of nowhere just as we were starting, even though he had slept soundly all night. He must not want any brother or sisters!”
