Parenting & Relationships

  1. Tell Me About It: Kids' weight shouldn't be focus for family

    Relationships

    Q: I am very concerned about my nephew and niece, both clinically obese. Their pediatrician warned years ago that they were at risk of getting diabetes, but every passing year they get bigger and bigger. They are young enough where their diet is largely controlled by their parents, yet poor nutrition is the …

  2. Tell Me About It: Snoring spouse won't address his problem

    Relationships

    Q: I got married earlier this year to a wonderful man. During the day, things are great. But at night, he snores loudly and keeps me awake. I've done everything I can to deal with it: I wear industrial earplugs, use a white noise machine, take sleep aids, and have been sleeping on the couch for the last four …

  3. Tell Me About It: He doesn't believe her ex is just a friend

    Relationships

    Q: I've been dating a woman steadily for four months. Late last year, she dated another man for about six weeks, and they were quickly intimate. Then he broke it off with her because he supposedly was still hung up over his ex. Then he contacted her with a phony apology and they again were intimate until he broke …

  4. Tell Me About It: Nit-picky husband may find himself single

    Relationships

    Q: My wife and I live by two different schools of thought. I believe that if something is worth doing, it's worth doing right, and I put lots of time, energy and resources into things I plan. My wife believes the perfect is the enemy of the good, and will accomplish tasks in a way I feel is slapdash. For example, …

  5. Tell Me About It: Give friends in need their time and space

    Relationships

    Q: About two months ago, one of my best friends told me she and her husband are officially getting a divorce (among other problems, he cheated). I told her I am of course there for her when she needs it. I can take a day off work and drive to her anytime; we live an hour apart and have differing work …

  6. Tell Me About It: Wedding brings up relationship issue

    Relationships

    Q: I have been in a relationship for over 18 months with my girlfriend. We were invited to my friend's wedding, and I am in the wedding party. She has met some but not all of my friends, including the bride and groom.

  7. Tell Me About It: Having kids causes friendships to change

    Relationships

    Q: Honest question and not trying to start a war! I'm a single, childless woman in my 30s. A majority of my friends and family members are parents to some amazing kids who I love.

  8. Tell Me About It: Having it all seems not enough for her

    Relationships

    Q: I have a friend who, by most any measure, has a lot to be thankful for. She has two lovely children and a husband. She's able to work only part time (though she hasn't gone back since child No. 2). They own their home outright and just bought a second in a beach neighborhood where they'll move once they …
