Can I adopt the baby I babysit 5 days a week non stop who's mother always talks about how inconvenient he is?0Sameela2012-11-02 17:36:02
Hello, I am a 22 year old mom of an almost 4 year old. I am a college student studying for my bachelors degree in child development psychology. A friend of mine found out she was pregnant at 6 and a half months into the pregnancy. The baby was then born 2 months later. He was a premie. She works overnights and has no one else to care for the child except for her elderly grandparents who are not well. I care for him 5 days a week non stop. She drops him off Sunday morning and does not pick him up till Thursday afternoon or evening. This evening when she dropped him off, we sat on the front porch chatting a bit. She began to tell me how she picks him up, looks him in the eyes and tells him "mommy can't handle you. Mommy has emotional issues to take care of and hasn't had the time to do it with, especially not the time to deal with your birth. Mommy doesn't want you all the time. She can only handle you some of the time." Then she proceeded to tell me how she doesn't want him all the time because she doesn't like babies "more than just to hold them and give them back, so she won't be stepping in until he is much much older! That's when she'll deal with him" she also told me how she wanted to "get rid of him this Thursday," (meaning she wanted to leave him with me an extra day or two, or just till the following Thursday) "but has a meeting with someone from the mother and child program at her home Thursday and has to have him there for it so 'she guesses' she'll just have to deal with him till Sunday then she'll 'GET RID OF HIM' next week." She proceeded to tell me about how "its not HER fault he was born!" and "its not HER fault he came when he did!" and about what an inconvenience he is to her and, well, you get the picture! She went on and on about how much of an inconvenience HE is to her and how she doesn't want to deal with him because she has HER life to live WITHOUT him. I have all but begged her to just sign him over to me. And she will not do it. She doesn't flat out say no, but she always changes the subject because if she gives him up, she loses her welfare check, her insurance, and her food stamps. She works a full time job with overtime, yet she is still receiving monthly checkSSSSSS, food stamps, state pays her car repairs, gas, and car insurance, and she has free medical insurance, as well as WIC. THAT is why she won't fully give him up. This child needs to be removed from her care before she messes him up bad. She does not properly feed him, she feeds him too much so he'll sleep longer. I would love to keep this baby and get custody of him as my own. Does anyone know if this is possible? I am being told to go to the Department of Health and Human Resources in my county and explain the situation and speak to a social worker. Does anyone know of any other action I can take as well? She practically abandons him when he is in my care. She NEVER EVER calls or texts to check on him. She only contacts me when she wants to drop him off, and when she is coming to get him. It is not a healthy situation for him, and she is not a fit parent at all. Please give me some suggestions! PLEASE![View Answers]
I have a 2.4 GPA...are there any grad schools that would still consider me?0Anoited One2012-11-02 07:13:48
I just finished my junior year of college (majoring in philosophy, if that matters), and I found out that my GPA for the last three years is a 2.4. I go to an unconventional liberal arts college, where grades are really subjective because there are no exams (only discussion-based classes), and students are told to focus on their overall performance, not their grades. Grades are never publicized, and students are even discouraged from checking them--which is all fine, except when it comes to applying to grad school! I hope to improve my grades a bit during senior year, but I don't think my GPA would go up by much. So my problem is this: I have always wanted to go to grad school for psychology (perhaps to get a PhD), but I am seriously worried that my grades will hinder me from getting in. I plan to take the GRE soon and I am certain that I will get good scores, as I generally do very well on standardized tests, and got a great score on the SATs. I also plan to get a psychology-related internship in the near future. But my question is: are there any psychology grad schools that will still consider accepting me, in spite of my low grades? A lot of the programs I've looked at mention that a 3.0 GPA is necessary to even apply. Help![View Answers]
Is there a dance scholarship or school that will pay for my travel to dance with them? Help!?0jerson2012-11-02 06:07:58
Academically, I might not be able to get back into college. I want to continue my dancing and maybe become professional if my Psychology major doesn't work out. I cannot find a job, I have no income or family support, or a vehicle to travel. I live in Arkansas and there are not that many great dance schools. Can anyone recommend me to any programs or ideas? I would love to go to Cali for their awesome dance choices but I don't have away to get there :([View Answers]
How do I switch careers from Tech to Psych.?0Valentino2012-11-02 06:01:47
Ok so here is an interesting one. After 17yrs in the IT field living in NY Metro area and quickly approaching my 40s, I have decided to change over to a career in Psychology. I am looking to do either Industrial/Organizational work or Sports Psychology. I have a BS in Comp. Science, and I do plan to go through to a PhD. Knowing that I can only do school part time and still have to work full time...I am trying to find work that may still utilize my tech skills and still allow me to follow through or support my educational endeavors. I have looked at trying to work at colleges or univ. but some either have the right masters/PhD. program/not the right position or vice versa. Has anyone out there gone through this or know someone that has done this? Any help would be appreciated.[View Answers]
Hunter College Psychology Program?0Princess_17 2012-11-02 05:39:57
Im about to graduate from BMCC with an associate's degree in liberal arts. I've been thinking of going to Hunter for my BA. I wanted to ask a few questions. 1)Since I'll have my Associates going into Hunter. Does that mean that I will continue with the same amount of credits I had when I graduated from BMCC? (Ex. I graduate with 74, i will continue with 74 credits, and none of my credits get rejected). 2) Since I'll have 74 credits does that mean I can finish my BA before 2 years?[View Answers]
Does Affirmative Action do more harm than good?0aneesha2012-11-02 05:28:16
I was thinking about this today. At the college I went to, the average student had an SAT score of 1300 (out of 1600). I was good friends with this African-American girl freshman year, and one time she told me her SAT score was slightly below 1000. Regardless of your views on Affirmative Action, there's no way someone with this test score could've gotten into my school if she wasn't black. She was a sweet girl, but she was in over her head. She was in my Spanish class freshman year, and on our first test, my professor had me pass back the tests to everyone in the class. She was the only F in the class. She wanted to be a psychology major, but found it too hard, so switched to sociology. By second semester sophomore year, she had dropped out. She's now 25, still living in the ghetto with her grandmother, and a single mom that's not currently employed. My question is: Do you think someone like her would've been better-suited at a college with students with similar SAT scores? I'm not trying to be mean, but she just wasn't as well prepared for college as the rest of us, and failed miserably. Because if she had been at a college with similar students, she could have possibly excelled in the major she wanted, done well among her peers, and maybe wouldn't have dropped out. Yes, I am against Affirmative Action, and all race-based discrimination. But I'm asking this question from a different perspective: Is the program that's intended to lift minorities up actually holding them down?[View Answers]

Clinical Psychologist in Mental Institution?0Raf2012-11-02 05:15:24
I've always wanted to work in a mental institution since I was in high school. I'm now a junior in college, a psychology major, and I absolutely am in love with my Abnormal Psychology and Personality Theory classes. I find it fascinating. I plan on going straight into a PsyD program once I graduate, I have a few schools listed that I want to go to. I was wondering, when I graduate and get my PsyD will I be able to work in a mental insitution? Or do they only employ psychiatrists? Also, is there anyone out there who currently work at one? If so, how is the environment?[View Answers]

I'll be going to college next fall and I would really like to major in Psychology (and eventually work as a Psychiatrist). I haven't seen any schools with remarkable psychology programs, good or bad.

College help please? bay area?0Enoch2012-11-02 03:55:24
i'm a sophomore in high school, but have been looking into colleges in the bay area. my statistics are not nearly up to berkeley or stanferd level, and have been looking into usf and sfsu, but i have a couple of questions. i know that university of san francisco is a jesuit college, but what does this really mean? do we have to take religious classes? is it a conservative or liberal school? is it diverse? also, is it more in the residential area of sf? how far from the city? i know that usf is a private school and is a lot of money, and i was wondering if i don't get in there or if i can't go there, should i just go to community college first and then transfer to another school? ..or just go to san francisco state university? i live in southern california, where there are already cal states close by. is there a big difference between san francisco state university and calstate la or cal state fullerton? because i heard sfsu is a commuter campus, but i really want to go to college in the bay area. is it unnatural or unecessary to go alll the way to sf to attend a cal state? do a lot of people live on campus? also, i'm interested in the nursing program and maybe psychology. are these good schools for my interests? and if there are any colleges for a good, liberal, diverse college in the bay area with a good nursing program, i'd really appreciate your recommendations. if not in the bay area, perhaps any other urban/large city area too, except LA. preferably a city similar to sf or ny would be nice.[View Answers]

London university reputations?0Kia2012-11-02 02:07:30
I'm planning on studying abroad in london during the spring semester but im having difficulty picking which school that i want to go to. You can't really tell what the local reputation of each school is from the website because they obviously play up everything that's good about their school. I was hoping you could give me your honest opinion about each schools reputation (party school, smart, weirdos, etc) and answer a few questions for me about each school. I'm looking for a school that is in london and not really on the outskirts of the city so i would have easy access to city life,is it in a safe area, all lot of students that are actually from the United Kingdom, and I'm double majoring in psychology and sociology with a minor in criminal justice so if they are good in those programs (not too important I will mostly be pursuing general education requirements because they transfer easier). the schools I am looking at are: Royal Holloway Goldsmith's college University of Westminster and I'm on the fence with including City University just because it says it has over 50% international students but it fits really well in my area of study wow that turned into a book, sorry. haha thanks for your help![View Answers]
Can you be a Ph.D psychologist AND a nurse practitioner?0Success2012-11-02 01:06:59
I decided that I would get my Ph.D in clinical psychology. But after googling the 'ugly side' of it, I'm a little hesitant. I'm young and dedicated, so time and effort is not an issue, but money definitely is. And I want to make enough as fast as I can to pay off current student loans and live life comfortably. So I googled psychiatric nurse. That seems interesting and something I would do. However, I'm a junior in college making plans to apply to a graduate program for my Ph.D in psych (I haven't yet though), so going to school and getting my bachelor's at a nursing school is well - not possible for me to go back and do now. Is it still possible for me? What other career options should I consider? My major is psych so I haven't taken any pre-med courses :([View Answers]
Which path should I take: stay at my job? uni? travel?0raman2012-11-02 00:36:10
Current Situation: I'm 21, been doing web development for 3-4 years. Right now, working for a large media firm. No college education -- just a Cert IV in Programming from TAFE (the US equivalent of community college). I've been offered a role in another company that would *double* my current salary. However, 1)It's a different industry, 2) I've only been at my current job for 8 months, 3) it's only a 6-month contract initially. But at my current job, it doesn't seem like i'm going to get promoted anytime soon Also with much IT work set to be outsourced for the future, I'm thinking of going to uni instead, so I can get into a different field of work. If I do, I'll probably do a Bus/Psychology course. So here are my options: - stay at the current company and try to get promoted - go to the new job, earn twice as much and save/invest money - study at uni - get a job overseas, to learn more, get more money, and increase my knowlege of the world What would you do?[View Answers]
What should I do if I don't get into the nursing program...? Please Help!!?0toju2012-11-02 00:24:47
I'm already finishing up my 3rd year (junior) and going to be a senior soon when school starts again in Fall. It's really horrible but at my school they just barely started this year that I'm applying that there will NO longer be a wait list. What's unfair about it is because I know a few others and friends who were able to get in, but all of them were on the wait list (they had to wait just a little bit though, about 1-2 quarters which isn't as bad as waiting a year or more). Anyways, basically if I don't get into this program, which I have been working so hard to get into and have already finished all of my general education and prerequisite classes requirements, well what if I don't get in, then I'd just have to wait a whole other year to apply again (and still there's no guarantee I'll get accepted) I'm worried about this because my GPA has slipped down a few points (but is still a bit over 3.0 the minimum, I now have about a 3.3 gpa overall). So, with all the applicants competing (there's over 400 here! with only less than 60 seats :( I just don't know if I'll ever get the chance. There are barely any other nursing schools where I live either and currently am going to a university, so really want to finish and get my Bachelors. Now that I think about it, I just don't know if it was really worth it to go through all this trouble with nursing and maybe risk not even getting in. What would you do if you were in my position? I do want to stay in town (I live with my family) so going out of state or city and transferring or applying elsewhere isn't an option for me! So if you didn't get into the nursing program, would you just wait or take time off college? maybe voluneteer? Or should I just do another major and pretty much start all over? I can do a few more years, that I don't really mind, but it's already my 3rd year (I'm a junior about to be senior status soon) so I don't know if it's worth it or would end up being bad for me if I swithc majors. IF i do switch I'm interested in Sociology or Psychology though I know those majors practically would be hard to find a job in and it's pretty different field, but I just don't really like to major in biology because it's such a difficult subject ( I do like bio don't get me wrong just don't want to do it even though it's closer to nursing, and have to do all the work again, especially the labs my least fave), Honestly if I had known all this would happen beforehand=, I probably wouldn't have picked nursing for my major. it's just too hard :/ Sorry for writing so much! I really hope someone could help me with this. I need to make a decision and am having a hard time doing so. I just am not sure which would be the best way to go. You can just mention your answer as if what you would do instead, but please read what I wrote above. Thank you in advance for answering and for any advice you can give![View Answers]
I need help solving a life decision?0Kia2012-11-02 00:08:39
Last year I attended my first year of college at Our Lady of the Lake University. I heard it had an excellent psychology program and recognized master and doctoral programs in family therapy and marriage counseling, both of the kind of specializations I want to work in. However, I had a hard time making friends and only made one friend. This year I tranfered to Incarnate Word, the university my best friends attend. Yes, I basically did transfer over because of my best friends. I really like it at the university because I have a social life, lol and the campus is very lively and active. The only problem is this college algebra class I have to take. I am very bad at math, and in order to get into my stats class (at Incarnate Word) for psychology I need to take college algebra. I am currently taking this class and am about to drop it because I am failing. At my other school i just needed to take math for liberal arts( which I took and got an A) to get into the stats class. I don't know if i should transfer back or try taking the algebra class at community college and hope I pass. Oh, and not to mention if i don't get this stats class out of the way I'll get behind because it is pretty important to my degree and I'm already behind anyways. What should I do? I know this was long but i need some advice. Of course I'm not going to make my life decision based on yahoo answers but I need to see my situtaiton from every possible perspective. [View Answers]
