Seriously?

Dear Annie: My wife and I have two boys, 10 and 12. For years, my wife has been either brushing their teeth herself — long past when it was appropriate — or hovering over them nightly to ensure they are doing it the “right” way. Every night she asks them, “Did you do all theContinue reading “Seriously?”

More bad advice today from Annie Lane!

Dear Annie: I’ve been very happily married for several years to a man I love deeply. Suddenly, his son from a previous marriage, who lives in another state, wants Dad to move to his state to be close to him, as he and his wife are planning a family. His son and I have neverContinue reading “More bad advice today from Annie Lane!”

Annie Lane added some bad commentary!

Dear Annie: I resembled the woman who wrote to say that she was staying married for the sake of her son. My then-husband quit his job shortly after the birth of our fourth son, and it took me seven years to realize that honor, marriage, family and commitment mean partnership — not martyrdom. I workedContinue reading “Annie Lane added some bad commentary!”

Writing, editing, and family news!

Hey, everyone! I hope everyone out there is having a great day. I’ve been hard at work on my memoir, and I’ve noticed that the opening chapters are boring. Ugh. I’m not sure how to fix it. I think the content is necessary to lay the groundwork of everything that comes after it. In otherContinue reading “Writing, editing, and family news!”

Elders?!

Dear Amy: I am a woman in my 70s. I do not understand why women in their 30s think they can treat their elders with disrespect. I had two unkind mothers-in-law, but I wouldn’t have dreamed of being rude to them or “telling them off” because they were my elders — the mothers of myContinue reading “Elders?!”

DEAR ABBY: I am a 31-year-old woman who has been in many relationships since high school. No engagements, however, although four of the men mentioned they wanted to marry me. I lived with three of them. I’m a former model, have almost completed my second master’s degree and hold a steady government job.

Interesting topics from Dear Abby today!

DEAR ABBY: My daughter is married to a very nice man, but he’s a know-it-all. When we have a conversation, he is always “right” and disregards my point of view. I know my daughter is upset by it but, of course, she takes his side. I have tried to be close with him, but heContinue reading “Interesting topics from Dear Abby today!”

What we have here is a failure to communicate.

Dear Annie: When I was a child, I had many chilling things happen to me. I barely remember some incidents, and they don’t seem to affect me now — well, other than the mental illness running through my entire body. Anyway, as a 47-year-old looking back, one thing still hurts me to the core andContinue reading “What we have here is a failure to communicate.”
