Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I know you provide a booklet to help teens with questions about sex. But when should I talk to my son or give him a copy? He will turn 9 soon. I know that is young, but kids today are exposed to so much so early. — KRISTEN IN MARYLAND DEAR KRISTEN: You’re absolutely right; they are....
DEAR ABBY: I’m a man in my mid-30s who has recently recognized a pattern in my romantic relationships. A few of them lasted for several years, before they ended for various reasons. In between, I’ve gone a couple of years before seeking out and starting a new relationship. In the in-between time,...
DEAR ABBY: I’m confused about what to do and need help. I’ve been married for two years and I love my husband, but he is in the military and I have big dreams. The fact that he is military means where he goes, I go. There’s no moving to where I want. My dream is to go to Le Cordon Bleu in Paris...
DEAR ABBY: On a recent trip out of state, my husband became ill. The hotel we stayed in referred us to a nearby urgent care walk-in clinic. The nurse took his blood pressure, which was very high. The “doctor” never took his temperature or mentioned the high blood pressure to us. He prescribed...
DEAR ABBY: I have an 8-year-old stepson, “Kaden,” whom I love dearly. Kaden spends the bulk of his time with his mother on the other side of the country. When he comes to visit us in the summer, his clothing and shoes are always ragged and a few sizes too small. My husband pays child support and...
DEAR ABBY: Five years into our marriage, my wife and I took a girlfriend, “Sonya.” I fell madly in love with her. Unfortunately, my relationship with my wife cooled because she changed as a person. We ended up divorcing. I’m still in love with Sonya, but obviously nothing will ever come of it. I...
DEAR ABBY: I recently had my lover of 11 years arrested for domestic violence. It was the hardest thing I have ever done. He had me isolated and cut off from the world, and without family around, I felt extremely lonely and fragile. Looking back, I see how wanting to be loved and not alone caused...
DEAR ABBY: I’m 15. My problem is I often mouth off and insult people. When I’m asked to explain why I said what I did, I answer with, “I don’t know” or a shrug. It’s the truth. It upsets me that I act this way, and I have lost friends because of it. My parents think counseling and therapy are a...
DEAR ABBY: I’m concerned about a photo my uncle posted to Facebook. It features my two female cousins, ages 6 and 2, shirtless. I know no harm was intended in posting the photo, as they are both adorable girls. However, I find it inappropriate that the 6-year-old — who is going into first grade —...
DEAR ABBY: My brother, “Chris,” is going through a divorce and lost his business. He is now lashing out at our mom and me when she spends time with me. When I tried to express my sympathy, Chris attacked me via direct message, saying I have a “charmed life and don’t care about anyone — including...
