How does a person stop rumors from running rampant in a close knit group/family/set of friends?
What ever you do make sure you stay part of the solution! I believe you'll do you best!
First don't repeat the rumor to the others, when someone tells you a rumor ask what facts they have to prove their claims. Tell them that "he said and she said" are not enough to allow you to think differently about these people you love.
Remind them they are talking about people that you both love and that adding discource like this will cause damage to all the relationships involved.
Remind them also that when one points a finger at others there are four pointing back at them. They too have done or said things that are wrong.
Tell them you feel the gossiping is wrong. These are people we love and part that love is sharing their up and their downs. We are told to help the weak, the broken, the down and out people of our communities. Our friends and family are people too and should receive our support.
Lastly if these rumors get back to others and there's a falling out. Try to be the "peacemaker", talking to those involved seeking to a resolution to the discource. Part of solution will be forgiveness, and the love shared over the years.
If they are church going folks, remind them if they want the Lord's forgiveness for their deeds, they to must learn to forgive those who transgress against them aswell. Also remind the correct people that He also speaks of liars, and their reward.
I heard a speaker at our church say, "Life is to Short to Quarrel and Hearts to Precious to Break."
This quote I have on the kitchen wall to remind us not to let indifferences come between us and our love for each other.
Hope it works out!
Has anyone, anywhere seen a family group composed of: East Asian man, Black woman and White "caucasian" child?
What it says is not racial or gender bias but biology: East Asian sperm with Black female egg does not and never will equal a White child.
Are you talking about adoption or a child of foster care? No, I've never seen it. But my white grandparents had a black foster child for many years. Then the government decided black children should not be in white families so they sent him to a city far away. My grandmother never recovered.
Family group of 6 embarking on an MSC cruise from Barcelona. Large apartment near cruise dock?
Probably the best place to stay would be near the avda del para lel or ronda del litoral streets. However, Barcelona is expensive and its very hard to find apartments to rent for just one night. also, there's a lot of traffic so I would recommend you find a hotel or aparthotel (like a hotel but more of a condo) near one of these streets. The metro system there is fantastic but i probably wouldn't recommend it just because you have luggage and don't want to be getting stressed.
Also, if you can, don't go on-board the ship until after 1pm, which is when the rooms are ready. That way you can get on, leave your stuff in your room, and comfortably wonder around the ship. Otherwise you may have to carry your stuff with you until the rooms are ready.
Enjoy your cruise.

What would the correct pronoun be for words such as, group, family, and audience?
Group as a collective noun can be followed by a singular or plural verb. It takes a singular verb when the persons or things that make up the group are considered collectively: The dance group is ready for rehearsal. Group takes a plural verb when the persons or things that constitute it are considered individually: The group were divided in their sympathies. See Usage Note at collective noun.
The above was from education.yahoo.com's dictionary. www.dictionary.com calls audience and family collective nouns too.
Additionally, according to the yahoo dictionary,
A noun that denotes a collection of persons or things regarded as a unit.
So if you have a verb, it might be plural, even without using a plural pronoun. The group are exhausted. is right if you are talking about every individual member of the group.
Thanks for the question because I didn't know the answer at first. I was thinking something like:
The group leaves the diner because its members are exhausted.
That would also be acceptable. At least I think that it would.
How do I tactfully exclude a family from coming to group events at my house?
It's tough because there's a good chance that family will find out about their exclusion!Perhaps say you have an age restriction on the event that ''coincidentally'' rules out the 7yr old! If that's not an option have the event but lock away all valuables and keep the kids outside or in a special play room!preferably with a wooden or tiled floor!Good luck!
How does a member of a family group add info to a file or link started by someone else in that group?
files- only the owner or moderators of a group can edit a file someone else created. if the group settings are so, any member can add a new file to a folder. members should see left side: Add File | Create Text File | Create Folder
links- same thing. if the settings are so, a member should be able to add links, to a folder already there are create a new folder and add into that. members should see left side: Add Link | Add Folder
to see what your group settings are at, click management- under group settings web tools- web tools (edit) <-- click the edit- scroll through all and select so memebrs can- click save changes
How can we establish a Moderator on a Family Group site?
Wouldn't it be simpler to create a new group with the settings you prefer and personally invite the members in good standing to join the new group?
Don't discuss it in the old group. Just do your stuff behind the scenes and have the good guys abandon the spam bucket.
All your good members can be told to delete their posts if they don't want them lying around in the old group archive.
anyways things what make me and my family unique is people know us from being super nice and having soft voices its just my mom and my sister and i and people say we sound alike lol :)
when i answer the phone people think im like 4 or 5 i hate it also people don't take us serious because we act upper class but its just our personality's like people when they see us they say oh they are stuck up!!! but its not true :) also our dark eyes and hair even tho i dyed mine!!!
what about for you and your family
It's interesting, because I cannot find statistics on dysfunctional families in the United States.
I think it doesn't apply to individual race of the family. There are many whites, Asians, Latino Americans, and blacks who have very strong family values, but there are some others that are dysfunctional and have no concern for each other, which may be due to an incident or series of events in their lives. Even people in poverty can still cherish their family members, so you can't truly judge by that.
What backgrounds and similar clothes look best in a group family photograph?
Darker earth tones look better in photographs. Blues, greens, browns and blacks are best, in my opinion.
Pinks and reds (especially on caucasians) will make skin tones look pale.
Solids are best. Avoid things with patterns, and avoid pastel colors. Both will draw the eye away from the faces in the photo.
In my experience, white can go either way, depending upon the background. If the background is colorful and busy (say, yellow and red fall leaves) white tends to make the subjects pop out of the background. If the background is plain, I don't like white as much, as it's bland, and tends to compete with the faces of the subjects for attention.
What to get as a group family present for christmas?
Homemade cookies. Everybody loves them and hardly anyone gets them. The supplies will cost under a hundred dollars and you will have to invest your time but you can cover everyone. Give more to the bigger family and put a ribbon on a paper plate (Christmas ones can be picked up cheap). If you can't cook find unusual cookies and candies.
Chillis because they don't charge gratuity and it's a decent place. I work at olive garden and we charge grat if it's 8 people or more at 18% so be careful alot of times they don't tell you till the end
can anyone identify a flower or its family group for me?
Hard to tell from your description, but it sounds like it may be a lily. What shape are the petals - round or pointed? The three ourange/yellow (growths?) between the petals - are they petals as well?
Day lilies usually only last a day - hence the name. How tall is it? Is there more than one flower per stem? More than one stem per plant? Any chance you could get a picture of it? That would help immensely.
Can I start an Al-anon family group at my university? How?
If you get in touch with the headquarters of A.A. they will send you a package with all the info you nneed to hold your first meeting.All you really need is a nutral place to hold it. It's not recomended to use our homes. I started an S.I.A. group simply because I really needed one. The first week we had 15, the second week we had 50 ! And 15 years later that group is still going strong ! I find that old timers will join your group often to keep doing their 12th. step of helping others. Good Luck !
How do you get out of a/an cult, organization, family, group, or club that you have sworn your life to?
Honestly, if this group of people love you and want you to be happy, they will let you go with no repercussions. Family should want you to be happy, to be free, to succeed in whatever you choose to do with your life. Yes, there may be disappointment. There may be feelings of abandonment. But if you feel that death is the only 'out' you have, then you need to contact the authorities.
why are some people willing to kill and be killed for the sake of family(group) honor?
Because they value this vague concept of family honor. Killing for family honor also allows certain members a degree of control over the behaviors of others. Its also traditional.
Given that most of us would be targets of honor killings in certain parts of the world, you can bet that the reaction to honor killings would be pretty negative in this forum.
How many people can you have in a family talk group for texting for AT&T?

As moderator, how can I prevent solicitors from joining my family group? How do I approve who joins?
Sounds like you need to change the Membership Type setting for your group. To view your current setting and change it:
- Go to your group home page and click on "Management" in the left margin.
- Under Group Settings, click "Membership"
- Your Membership Type is listed at the top of the Group Settings page. I suspect yours is set to "Open".
- Click on "Edit" next to the title line. You will be able to change Membership Type and some other things.
- Click on the "Save Changes" button at the top right when you've modified things to your satisfaction.
Explore the other links on the management page to get a feel for the things you can control as moderator.
Does the Family Readiness Group have a means to support spouses who live far from their husband's base?
First, let me say that you are smart to think ahead. So many of the families I deal with don't and it would make my job so much easier if they did.
I am the KVC for my husband's unit and I have approximately 300 families that I work with. Most of my families are on base here in North Carolina, but some of my families are on the west coast, Alaska, Louisiana, and Texas. Make sure that your husband requests a volunteer for you with his unit. He has a family readiness officer that can take your information and forward it to the person. There are a multitude of places and resources available to you. The first place I would tell you to go is the militaryonesource website. They can put you in touch with just about anyone you need and they are global. They man the website and phone bank 24/7 and I have yet to have a spouse have a bad experience dealing with them. They have dealt with all aspects of deployments and are NOT judgmental.
My husband just returned from a 13 month deployment and I'm not going to tell you it was easy, but you will survive. This was his 6th one to a combat area, but I think it was number 18 in his career. Each one is different, but the one thing I can tell you is that you will be amazed at how strong you really are.
If you want someone to talk to or just to vent, feel free to email.

Have a great time with your family!
They aren't essential any more. They are leftover from the pencil and paper days. Any genealogy program worthy of the name has the ability to show you data in "Family Group Sheet" mode or "Pedigree" mode. Any program can print a FGS at the click of a button.
All they are is form. You put a man and woman at the top, and their children below. You add BMD dates and places, and a note that child #1 on this FGS is the father on FGS #123, child #2 is the mother on FGS#124, and so on. If a man marries three times, the second and third times to widows with children, you could have five FGS for a single family.
Knowing who the siblings are, on the other hand, can help enormously. If the names are the same and the birth order is the same, you can be reasonably certain that the family you see in the 1910 census is the same one you saw in 1900, even if they all fudged their ages by 5 years.
