I like hiking in caves. My parents are upset about bats and stuff. What can I do?

Low risk: Most bat bites occur from bats in houses, barns, etc. The risks of spelunking are considerable but related to the structure of the cave, falling, flooding, getting stuck in narrow crevices, etc. You should always take precautions, never go alone, state a plan to those on the surface, and use proper equipment. ...Read more

No rabies exposure: Just hiking doesn't count as a 'rabies exposure'. Primarily rabies is transmitted from the bite of a rabid animal. Very rarely, a scratch is enough to do the job.

Thnx:)?

Sounds like a little: assertiveness would serve you. You paint going to parties and pleasing parents as polar opposites, which sounds arbitrary. I wonder what the real issues might be? Family counseling might help, or just learning to speak up with skill. Here's a starting reference: http://www.psychologyproductsandservices.com/page3.html ...Read more

Why do our gen y kids have that don't worry/be happy attitude when parents are upset daily over finances?

Why do our gen y kids have that don't worry/be happy attitude when parents are upset daily over finances?

We taught them: To be that way. In many ways that attitude can be healthy. If they have never had to work for anything then they may develop that attitude because parents have always provided everything. We can learn from our children as they tend to live more in the moment and maybe we should not worry about finances so much...After all the most important things in life are not finances but relationships. ...Read more

Careful what I eat. Visited by parent from nursing home and teen who spend summer abroad. Could I have gotten upset bowel from them?

Common things: Common things occur commonly, rare things occur rarely. The most common (and likely) reason is a GI virus. Gi viruses are exceedingly common in the summer in the northern hemispheres. The visits were probably coincidental. If it is a virus, it will likely resolve itself in a few days. If abdominal symptoms continue, see your doctor. ...Read more
