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.

Q. I was wondering if older people get bad breath more than younger folks.
I could find no direct correlation between aging and halitosis, which is the term for bad breath. However, I’m going to take a couple of educated stabs at the topic.
Many older people have dentures. If they don’t fit correctly or are not cleaned often, they can collect food and bacteria; both can lead to bad breath.
