How do you prepare kids to deal with finding their narcissistic non-custodial mother's MySpace and photobucket pages filled with profanity drinking and inappropriate behavior?

Answer . YOU can start by monitoring their computer usage first.. It's a shame they found what they did, and you have a big job ahead of you. Maybe you can use this opportunity to explain why you and mom got a divorce in the first place. Take your children's ages into consideration when explaining this and don't do anymore harm than what has already been done. In other words, be fair and adult - don't use this as an opportunity to bash the ex, but at the same time, make it very clear that you don't approve of her behavior. Be a role model.

Will Miley Cyrus's inappropriate behavior influence kids to do the same?

Well first of all, lets just be happy those kids arent following in britney's foot steps. But the magority of parents and all people do not think that Miley Cyrus is that innaprpiote. She can sometimes wear bad things, but kids have parents they have gaurdians, They are not just going to love them for 8 years then start letting them wear rags and clown, innaprpiote clothes the next day! Besides Miley Cyrus is pretty young and from watching her show I think she has a pretty protective daddy! Obviously her "Daddy" isn't protective since he let her take those pics. And yes kids do get influenced by Miley's inappropriate behavior because she is their idol, they look up to her and want to be like her.

Is WikiAnswers a family site and if so why are there so many inappropriate questions?

That only depends on which category you are searching. Any good parent knows that children need to be supervised while on the internet. WikiAnswers is a site that is open to anyone and is constantly monitored by Supervisors with a variety of backgrounds and interests. Obvious obscenity is discouraged and trashed as soon as it is seen. However deciding what is an inappropriate question isn't always as easy a matter to decide as it may seem. My personal opinion on this is that when someone does not know something, they ask. Then, with a bit of luck others chip in with the answer. If the answer is wrong yet others hopefully will correct the error. At times silly and inappropriate answers are posted; these are eventually removed and the contributor may be asked to refrain or be banned off the site. However the concept of inappropriate question is a little hard for me to fathom.

Explain the difference between uncharacteristic behaviour and inappropriate behavior?

Uncharacteristic behaviour is when someone acts unlike the way they usually act, say if I was shy and retiring and then one day I jumped on to a table and started dancing and singing, then that would be uncharacteristic behaviour. Whereas inappropriate behaviour is behaviour that is deemed unacceptable in those circumstances, say if i was in an exam and we had to not talk etc, then suddenly i leapt up and started shouting and screaming and ripping up exam papers, that would be inappropriate behaviour because it is 'against the rules' in that particular circumstance.

You got a write up for discussing inappropriate behavior of a fellow employee without first discussing it with a manager Is that legal in North Carolina?

I don't think the topic has much to do with the law. It belongs to the company's policy column and personal judgment. Most companies encourage their employees to first report any un-gentleman-like (harassment, unethical behavior, insults, etc.) behavior to the HR (human resources) or the employee's direct supervisor. The matter will then be out of your hands, so to speak -- you don't need to testify in court or anything like that. It is just an allegation so far, unless you have collected material evidence (a recorded audio or video tape), but that would be silly in that you have spent way too much time, especially company's time, doing things that the HR or the managers should be doing. They should be doing the questioning and interviewing other employees to verify the claim and talking to offending employee. No wonder that they don't like your behavior -- you are doing their job. If the first person you contact does not give you a satisfactory answer/resolution, you have the choice to go to a higher-level manager or the company-designated ombudsman. The company policy should have spelled out the procedure. If the work environment is too offensive and no resolution to your satisfaction, you should consider a transfer or leave. That would be another topic. =====

In a way, WikiAnswers does 'block' inappropriate questions.

Is there any correlation between being gay and inappropriate sexual behavior with minors?

There is no correlation between being gay and molesting children. Most child molesters are heterosexuals who have been molested. Gay means you are attracted to individuals of the same sex, not children of the same sex. Okay, there are statistics generated by the FBI and US Department of Justice that can this question. Pay attention: In the US today: . Sexually based offenses range from public urination, photographic exploitation, to molestation, to to pandering for prostitution, to coercion, to rape. . There appears to be a connection between stress induced reduction of oxytocin levels and the commission of empathy reduced offenses. Short side of it, the more the stress, the lower the empathy, the greater likelihood of criminal activity. . There are approximately 350,000,000 citizens/residents. . There are approximately 550,000 registered sex offenders, approximately 1.6% of the current population. . An estimated one of four women in the US today has been a victim of sexual abuse, approximately 43,750,000 (not all of these are discovered or prosecuted). . 80% of all sexually based offenses are family or close association related. These occur in order of most likely to least as follows: . Fathers . Stepfathers . Foster Siblings . Uncles and Aunts . Cousins . Brothers and Step brothers . Grandfathers . Family friends . Neighbors. . Approximately 10-15% of the registered sex offenders in this country are homosexual or bisexual. . Of all previous felons, convicted sexual offenders have the second lowest recidivism rate (5.6% nationally) and the highest release from prison rate (98%). The lowest recidivism rate , oddly enough, belongs to the least often released group , murderers (2.5% and around 10%, respectively). . Of the offenders convicted of sex crimes, those that repeat most often are those with the most violent crimes, those involving brutal physical force, 87% of the 5.6%. . Exhibitionists, the smallest subgroup of sexually based offenders, have a nearly 100% rate of recidivism and escalation of offense. . Homosexual and bisexual sex crimes are the least common, but the most likely to have multiple victims. . The assertion that those who have been molested will molest is a myth. There is no direct correlation to support this, just as there is no scientific evidence to support the antiquated belief that those who were physically abused become abusers. By an analysis of statistics the following is true : A national average of 5.6% (of previously convicted sex offenders) will ever commit another crime, any crime ; 40% of those who have never been convicted of a sexual offense are likely to do so. A combined average of around 67.8% of all other class of criminals will commit another crime with a high degree of escalation of violence.

It depends on the behavior. Most people who engage in inappropriate behavior do so because they weren't taught how to deal properly with other humans.

You have to take time to find out what the underlying cause of their bad behavior is and work on that.

What is uncharacteristic or inappropriate behavior in old people?

"Uncharacteristic" or "inappropriate" behavior definitions have their roots in social norms, or in other words, how we expect people to act. However, people must be cautious in labeling any "different" behavior as being "inappropriate" since many age groups or persons can have personal habits, quirks, or preferences that differ from our own or even clash with society's usual expectations. For example, people who lived through World War II became used to "rationing" the resources they used in daily life. They may collect and hoard food in a nursing home, for example, in case of an "emergency", rationing, or scarcity. Although food hoarding is "inappropriate" in society's thinking, in this population it is simply based on years of deprivation and fear. Or, as another example, a bedridden 75-year old woman requires home health care. The workers report that the patient "keeps her house totally dark and never opens window curtains", as being "inappropriate" for what most people expect. However, the home is dark and curtains closed simply because the woman is unable to get up herself to turn on lights and open curtains. Therefore, based on her situation, these behaviors are not inappropriate. An uncharacteristic behavior in an older person is any change from their routines. For example, Mrs. S. has always been frugal. She still uses the same dish towels she bought 50-years ago, and wears the same 5 house dresses year after year. However, her son dropped by and saw dozens of shipping boxes in the kitchen, containing everything from a back yard grill, make-up, frilly baby dresses, art supplies, etc. New fancy dresses and other clothing is thrown about the living room. When he asks his mom about all the 'stuff', she talks fast and is incoherent. She's appears unkept, ungroomed, and "wild" according to her son. He manages to get her to a doctor, who diagnoses "mania" which occurred from medication interactions and dehydration. An inappropriate behavior is different than uncharacteristic. For example, society has certain "norms". We expect people to relieve themselves in a bathroom, to be clothed in public, and we expect that an adult would not "talk crazy" or walk up and bite us. We don't expect someone to be inappropriate sexually, for example, we don't expect a 89-year old man to drop his pants in the hallway and try to seduce a visitor to a nursing home. (However, an 89-yr old can be sexual with another adult in privacy.) We expect that adults control their emotions; for example, we don't expect someone to yell incoherent sentences or lash out to strike someone. We don't expect an adult to spit on us, or to throw body waste at us. Most often when older people live at home, family members notice inappropriate behavior before it becomes severe. It may be a small thing that sets off alarm bells. Family says, "this is not how my mom / dad acts normally. If inappropriate behaviors continue, families often choose to place the relative for safety and for treatment. Medication management along with around-the-clock care can help reduce the inappropriateness and help the person return to normal behavior. However, some patients cannot recover so they remain institutionalized for safety, supervision, and to increase the public's comfort.

Is WikiAnswers biased against people who oppose gay behavior?

No, WikiAnswers isn't biased against people who oppose gaybehavior. It isn't biased against people who promote that behavioreither... but WikiAnswers IS biased against expressing hatred ordiscrimination against anyone else, because of site rules. I guess it comes down to how you express your opposition. If youoppose gay actions, respectfully, in answers to questions that arespecifically about that topic, then you're good. If you insteadinsult the people themselves, promote discrimination against them,or express hatred for them, you're violating our site Terms of Use,and you can be blocked. And we always prefer that you promote whatyou do believe in rather than opposing someone else's belief. It's the same with any other group or belief. There are people whohate Muslims, Jews, Mormons, Democrats, Republicans, the KKK,Neo-Nazis, people with blonde hair, or whatever football team. There are people who want to yell and scream at anyone who doesn'tbelieve in Global Warming, or who does believe that Mankind went tothe moon. No matter what it is, someone is going to be for it, andsomeone against. We might be against anything they stand for, but*our* problems have to remain with the actions that they take, andnot with the people themselves, or we are moving over into hatredand discrimination against a whole group of people just because ofa label. Without knowing individuals personally, we have no idea what theirlives are like or why they make the choices that they do.Obviously, if someone breaks the law, we have to take it farther...but we harm ourselves and our society when we let hatred take usbeyond respecting other people's rights and fighting only for ourown.
