My Sinchew/ Family

Working mother, what quality time with children

You may have more time than you realize. If not, it's crucial that you put out an effort to find or make some.


Child always lying, how to stop behavior?

I have a daughter who can't seem to stop telling "tall tales." I catch her in lies all the time at home, and now she's complaining that the children at school don't believe anything she says. Does she simply have a great imagination, or is this a serious problem?


Parents being fair with children, yet they continue to fight

Sibling rivalry is at its worst when there is an inadequate system of justice.


Meaningful activities for the family

My family lives together under one roof, and we share the same last name, but we don't "feel" like a family. How can I begin to put a sense of togetherness into this harried household? How do you put meaningful activities into your family?


Learning how to fight in a healthy marriage

Healthy conflict, by contrast, is focused on the issues that cause disagreement.


Cornerstone of a healthy marriage: communication

When my husband and I were dating, we could talk for hours about anything and everything. Now that we're married, we go out to dinner and have nothing to say to each other. What has gone wrong? Now he just keeps his thoughts to himself.


Raising my child as a single parent

What encouragement can you offer to those of us who are single parents? Each day seems more difficult than the one before it. Can you help plead our case to those who don't understand what we're facing?


Beyond adolescence

My sister's daughter went off to college at 18 and immediately went a little crazy. She had always been a good kid, but when she was on her own, she drank like a fish, was sexually promiscuous, and failed three of her classes.


Infidelity in a marriage

Do you feel that there is a kind of "blindness" that can occur when a victim of an affair denies the truth?


Cultivating good behavior

Children can learn very early in life about rewards and punishment and they also can be taught acceptable and non-acceptable behavior. The earlier we teach them, the less pain and embarrassment they are likely to cause us as parents and themselves as persons.
