Sad over friendships

2 hours ago -

P. Y. asks from Melbourne Beach - My daughter is 13 and very shy. A few years ago, she had a best friend who was very bossy and mean to her.

Alcohol and Christianity

2 hours ago -

A. J. asks from Milton - This is sort of a tag-on to a question. Sometimes people say they don't drink because they are Christian. I wonder what this means, because I was raised Lutheran, and we went to church A LOT, and there was no mention of not drinking in my church-I was young though so I ma...

When I Thought I Was Molly Ringwald

May 29, 2015

The year was 1988. I don’t remember exactly how we came across the dress, but I want to say we found it a trunk in granddaddy’s barn. I can tell you I fell in love with it immediately. It was a satin, strapless prom dress in a dark champagne hue, and my mom made it herself about 30 years before. She would have been just a little older than me at the time when she wore it….More

When did you stop reading at night with your child?

May 27, 2015 -

B. E. asks from New York - My son is 8 1/2 and has been asking me all spring to stop certain bedtime routines - no more baby blanket, no more lullabies, no more goodnight kisses (hugs are sometimes OK).

Having Difficulties Teaching Your Teen Social Media Safety?

I’ve had a successful, private, psychology practice for almost twenty years. Half of my clients are adults and half children and teens.

Need help coping with the loss of my dog

May 21, 2015 -

W. V. asks from New York - First off, I'm not a mama but was a very proud papa to my dog. I apologize if this community is for women only but I couldn't find anything else plus I prefer to talk with women anyway. My dog was 14 years old.

How to Get The Picture-Perfect Family Holiday Photo

New York:
December 12, 2010

Sitting in Central Park this weekend, I watched as a professional photographer brought her clients to a picture-perfect hideaway for the classic holiday card photo shoot. The little munchkins and their parents, all dressed up in holiday-wear, were positioned in just the right way and instructed to say “cheese” for the camera. Let’s face it. This photo is important. It represents an entire year of existence and growth for the family, as it is mailed out to close friends and family….More
