Testosterone Poisoning: Things my teen has called me.


Testosterone poisoning is a real thing according to our pediatrician.

He suggested that I check out You Tube for a video entitled “Testosterone Poisoning”, and once I have a minute between driving to kids programs and working my job, I’m going to watch it… I swear.

Apparently, it’s where boys, 13-years-old to 15-years-old are being poisoned by testosterone, and cannot be held accountable for things that come out of their mouths.

I thought it was a joke…

 

So here is what Testosterone Poisoning (TP) brought out of my son’s mouth this morning;

“You are the most useless human being on the planet AND the dumbest person alive!”

 

Yup.

Useless AND dumb.

I guess he forgot who gives him WiFi and pays for his phone… LOL.

 

My response… A hug.  Poor kid.

He’s done better, though.  I’m sure your kids have done better as well… Please share!

Ontario Election 2018: Thoughts


Don’t we tell our children to go to school, work hard, get good grades, go to University, work hard, get good grades, graduate, and then with all that effort and knowledge, they can make as much money as they want?

With tax rates shooting up under the Ontario Liberal government and set to go up even more under the NDP government, if elected, do we really want to tell that to our kids any more?

Or should we clarify or amend that for 2018 and beyond to something more like this;

 

Go to school, work hard, get a solid education then go to University or College, and get a better education then go out and make a ton of money because if you make a lot, you’re going to be paying more than everyone else in taxes, and you’re ambition, skills and success are needed to pay back a massive debt and deficit that previous generations of government have created so that they could stay in power.

Congratulations, future generations!  The future is here and your earning power is needed more than ever to pay for mismanagement of financial resources and bad spending.

Earn more, and pay more.

Where is the incentive?

It’s likely there will be parents telling their kids that the sweet spot is now $42,000 in Ontario.  Under $42,000 and you pay 5.05% in provincial tax.  Earn more, but don’t report it.  Or don’t earn it and let those foolish ambitious people pay almost 3 times what you do in tax for earning less than 3 times what you make.

The system is broken.

And if another person tells me that “balancing the budget is not that important”, I’m going to lose it.

I’d like that person to run their household the way the Liberals ran this province and the way the NDP would run the province for just one year and see what they’ve got at the end of the year.

It won’t be a guaranteed job, with a guaranteed salary.  It’ll be bankruptcy or homelessness.

What ever happened to not purchasing what you cannot afford to pay for??

Shame.
