Q. I am a single dad with full custody of two pre-teen daughters. I have no idea how to talk to them about the “womanly facts of life.” My mother is gone, and I have no close female friends. What do I do?
Panelist Mike Ramsey said, “Communication on any subject is based on what relationships you have with the other parties. Obviously, the father can’t relate to some of the issues his daughters are dealing with, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be supportive and help get them to resources they need.
I had plans to have dinner with a friend last Saturday night. The person called and said to change the reservation for a later time. Not too long after, there was another call to cancel the dinner. What happened to keeping commitments and not letting people down?
There is something to be said about the importance of keeping your word.
When social commitments are made and not followed through, feelings can get hurt. Unfortunately, there will always be people who, for some reason or another, make promises and then change direction.
