the answer to a question.
1: I am a divorced father with
a 9-year old daughter. My daughter has always had a close relationship
with my new wife and me. But since she found out we are having a
baby, she doesn't want to spend any time with us and won't even
get on the phone when I call her at her mother's house. What should
2: I am pregnant and very nervous
about telling my stepchildren, who live with us. How do I do it?
3: My husband and I married about
3 years after his first wife died. My 7-year old stepdaughter and
I have never had a great relationship. Now I am pregnant, and things
seem to be getting worse. Why? And what can I do about it?
4: My 11-year old stepson, who
lives with his mother, has been asking to move in with his dad and
me. I like my stepson, but we have a new daughter and I am worried
that if he moves in, it will disrupt our lives. Should I agree to
his making the move?
5: I think my 15-year old stepdaughter
should baby-sit for our new baby sometimes, but she doesn't want
to and her dad agrees with her. Should I insist, or find another
6: I have a 10-year daughter who lives with me and her
stepfather. We are thinking about trying to have another baby. When
should I tell my daughter about it?
7: My sons are 6 and 8-years old and I am having another
baby with their stepfather. They seem to be excited about the baby
but they are suddenly treating my husband very badly. Could there
be a connection?
8: My ex-husband's new wife is
pregnant and due in about 6 months. They haven't told my 8-year
old daughter yet. Should I tell her?
9: My wife is pregnant with our first child. I also have
a stepson whose father died. I love my stepson and I worry that
he is going to feel bad that the baby has a biological mother and
father, while he only has a biological mother. Is there anything
I can do to prevent that from happening?
10: When my 13-year old stepdaughter
comes to stay with us, she expects her father and me to change our
whole schedule to accommodate her plans. This is often very difficult
to do because we have an 18-month old baby who has her own routines.
What should we do?
