My partner and I want our kids to have a healthy relationship with food. Any advice?
My sister has a boyfriend no one in our family likes. He is rude to others and treats her poorly. She has been with this guy over a year now and I am worried she will settle down with him. I told her once I don’t think this guy is good enough for her — a little honesty with a minor side of confidence booster — and she didn’t seem to take me seriously.
While my parents and I agree on most things related to parenting — parenting styles, diet, discipline — we have one big area of difference — religion. My partner and I have different religious beliefs from my parents and wish to raise our child in that tradition.
I would like to solicit your advice about unsolicited advice. My family is full of suggestions — from how to parent to how to run my business. I know they are well-intentioned, and there is the occasional nugget of wisdom, but it drives me crazy!
I have been to a number of parties or social gathering over the years where I meet an interesting man who is a part of a straight couple whose partner or spouse is a bore.
My husband and I really enjoy having our friends over. Out of our group of friends, we have the only home with a cat. One of our friends has a girlfriend who is highly allergic to cats and is miserable when she comes over, even after taking Benadryl.
I have a close group of girlfriends of many years. We all live in different cities, but make an effort to stay in touch and get together once a year with our families. We all have children under 5, so it’s chaotic but fun…
My boyfriend and I have decided to move in together. How do I tell my current roommate/best friend who is already excitedly hunting for our next apartment?
