Family Project

Thursday, February 22, 2018 by CAROLE GORNEY in Focus

Q. My husband and I argue a lot. Although he has never hit me or been physically abusive in any way, he puts me down in front of the children, and screams at the top of his lungs when he gets upset. I don’t feel this is good for our children, ages six and 11, but I also think it would be even harder on them if my husband and I split up. I feel that I ought to put up with it for the sake of the children. What does the panel think?

Respectfully Yours

Dear Jacquelyn,

I am beginning a new semester in college and I often communicate with professors via email. Please explain the basics of email etiquette and how to format a proper email.

Dear Reader, The number of emails you send in your college career may seem endless. The way in which you communicate and present yourself when writing to your professors is extremely important. You should view how you communicate as a professional exchange.
