Q. My five-year-old son likes to play hide and seek, but it has started to become a problem because he will hide without telling me, whether at home or at the store. I become frantic trying to find him. He doesn’t always answer me when I call him, and I become afraid that he has gotten lost or that someone has taken him. When I do find him, he just laughs. I can’t get him to stop. What should I do: Put a leash on him when we go out?
Leaving a voicemail message makes me uncomfortable. I don’t know what to say and how much information to leave. Many times, when I hear the dreaded recording, I just figure, I’ll try again later when they’re there. When I do muster up the courage to leave a voicemail message, I tend to stumble a bit or I feel like I’m rambling on. How much information do I really need to leave? Any tips would be appreciated.
Q. My five-year-old daughter’s new best friend comes from a family with same-sex parents. I am stuck on how to begin to answer questions she may have about this. Can you help me with some pointers on how to handle the discussion?
The first reaction from the panel was that there is an assumption that the daughter is going to have questions about her friend’s parents.
Family members: Paul (dad), Julie (mom), Nici (sister), Andrew and Daniel (brothers)
Favorite subject(s): My favorite subject is English because I love reading and writing. Learning why great works of literature are considered great fascinates me. I also love my theology class because it changes my perspective on morality and life in a positive way.
