  1. Tell Me About It: Leave gender out of division of housework

    Relationships

    Why is it that when a woman cares about the division of labor at home — like her home being a decent level of clean — she is considered to be overreacting?

  2. Tell Me About It: Overwhelmed parent weighs out options

    Q: Since my kids were born, my job basically covered the cost of day care. The kids came home overtired and overstimulated.

  3. Tell Me About It: Identity of biological father is revealed

    Relationships

    Q: When I was 18, my mother revealed that the father I grew up with was not my biological father. She claimed she didn't even know my bio father, and never contacted him again after their brief weekend fling at his college. The conversation we had was very emotional.

  4. Tell Me About It: Self-awareness best way to break bad habit

    Relationships

    Q: I recently had a friend tell me that I have become arrogant since I entered a new career in which there's a culture of snobbery and one-upping.

  6. Tell Me About It: Remarks about food choices grow tiresome

    Relationships

    Q: I'm going on vacation soon with my in-laws, siblings-in-laws, and their spouses. Over the last few years, I've been working on eating fewer unhealthy foods like bread and dairy, and as a result I feel much better. This has resolved many stomach issues I've dealt with.

  7. Tell Me About It: Parents' extreme sheltering feels creepy

    Relationships

    Q: My daughter, 11, has three friends from school. One girl's parents are generous hosts. "Emma" is an only child and has a pool, fun toys, great snacks.

  8. Tell Me About It: Sister may take offense to generous offer

    Relationships

    Q: My sister attends school overseas and lives with her boyfriend. My parents recently told me she can't make it home for the holidays this year because she's on a student budget.
