Can my ex take my son out of the country with an expired passport?

C. M. asks from Little Ferry

My ex has our son's expired passport. My son has been mentioning that his dad will take him to Canada. I read that a minor can enter Canada with an expired passport. If they do go to Canada does anyone know if they can go to any other country from Canada?

Child's friend on trips

I have an indoor greenhouse, which is really just shelves with a plastic "roof" and sides that go down around it. The plastic has a zipper to allow you access. The problem is the zipper zips from the bottom up. Anybody have any ideas on how to reverse the zipper? I ...

B. F. asks from Bear

I used to wear skirts and dresses off and on, but only if my outting was for just a few hours. Over recent years I have come to the conclusion that the typical knee-length ones are stupid and uncomfortable. Hiking up a hemline (from the olden days) just to show leg is ...

Has anyone dealt with this or come up with a solution for it....?

B. F. asks from Bear

You'll have to pardon the subject matter, but my curiosity is for real. It really boils down to being gassy in bed with your husband next to you. I can imagine more husbands (as guys) "let loose" freely at home around their family, and don't bother to say "Excuse me"...

Is anyone married to a "genius"------when YOU'RE NOT?

B. F. asks from Bear

One incident can make all others seem to cascade right in front of me. Whenever I bump something with my car and it makes even a scratch, or else I get a tiny scratch on my car from an unknown source (shopping cart, maybe?), my husband is mostly the first to notice it a...

my 4 year old bio father wants to meet her, my husband and I can't agree.

A. L. asks from Wilmington

My daughter is 4. Her bio father contacted me a couple of weeks ago. Not sure why he has had a revelation and wants to be a part of her life now, but that is irrelevant. I spoke with my husband, who was furious he even contacted me. My daughter was born out of wedlock an...

Coping question to moms who have recently moved or just ponder it.

B. F. asks from Newark

For moms who have recently moved to a completely new area who live far away from any family and don't know anybody: How does it feel? Have you felt like a complete stranger in a foreign land? Maybe even invisible? (All this is speaking of times when your husband is w...
