DEAR ABBY: My son and his wife just gave us the news that they are expecting their first child. DEAR ABBY: I have seen letters in your column from parents who want to ensure their children’s and teenagers’ safety when visiting their friends’ homes.
They have waited five years for this wonderful milestone, and I am delighted. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 15-year-old girl, and I’m struggling with abuse. My husband has good friends who are women, and I have never objected when he stayed with them when he traveled from our home to Michigan. A question parents need to ask the hosting parents is what their drug and alcohol policy is.
Your mother should visit his school and talk to his teachers and the principal about this.
I live in New York City, so they tend to be models.
My 16-year-old brother is supposed to be a junior in high school, but he's still taking freshman classes. He may be lazy, but he may also have learning disabilities.
I don't know what to say to him to get it through his head that he needs to finish high school. — BIG SISTER IN NEW YORKDEAR BIG SISTER: If your brother is a junior and still taking freshman classes, he belongs back in school.
I would now like to meet a nice man to spend time with, but I suffer from an affliction many older women deal with -- alopecia. DEAR ABBY: I have an issue with my father and don’t know where to turn.
Dad is in his early 80s and — aside from poor eyesight — he’s in good health.
While marriage may not be for everyone, it's a known fact that married men live longer.
