Q1: I can't help but wonder, how else, besides the strong example we have set in our home, can we teach him the value and seriousness of making good relationship choices? Leading by example is usually the best way to get a point across. If your current marriage is as wonderful as you make it out to be, your son will notice that long-term monogamous ...

It takes comic forms including: You're not pretty like our mom, you don't wear enough makeup. ("Yes, your mom is very pretty." and she does wear rather a lot of makeup...) You have to use cookbooks ...

First and foremost, I would suggest you try to learn to make your very first question, always: are you ok? So if someone brushes against her and she yells that the person hit her (presumably wanting to get the other one "in trouble") ignore that part about the other person and ask "are you hurt?" "are you ok?" "does it hurt?" "do you need to come away ...

Anyone have any thoughts on this? My thoughts: Bella has gone through a lot and is facing more change. She is 6 years old. She needs some people to love her, to hear her, and to react lovingly. By lovingly, I don't mean ignoring her exaggerations, which are clearly an attempt to get attention. By lovingly, I mean doing the hard work of looking at our ...

My family is gassy...maybe just tell the class instead of farting and burping they should excuse them-self and go to the bathroom. Or instruct them to try going to the bathroom before they arrive to class.
