8 hours ago -

f. O. asks from Beverly Hills - It has taken me decades to finally say to people, No, I'm sorry, I can't. No, I don't have. No, that's not possible. It used to be so accommodating even if it put me out. Let me see what I can do. I think so. That's not a problem and so on... Now, I be sure to ge...

Brown stains from my dryer!

C. H. asks from Isle of Palms - I am totally exasperated by the brown stain that my dryer is leaving on my clothes.

A Mom of Girls: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

September 16, 2014

When I was younger, like most little girls, I daydreamed about my future life. I did not anticipate my wedding, but rather the perfect family that would come afterwards. My vision was very June Cleaver-esque. It involved a tall, dark, and handsome husband who worked a very regular 9-5 job every day and three children – two boys, and, finally, a girl who would be our little princess to spoil….More

J. T. asks from Oradell - I've written before one of my daughters is very sensitive. She's now in 3rd grade and got the teacher she really did not want because the teacher has a reputation of being very strict. This daughter is really well behaved. Every single weekly behavior report has been e...

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
