Ask Amy: Advice for the real world Samples
DEAR AMY: My wife and I think it might be a good idea to let our 10-year-old son explore the city in which we live. DEAR DAD: It depends on where you live. Many 10-year-olds and their classmates take public transportation to and from school.
DEAR AMY: My 18-year-old daughter "Emily" was hanging out and drinking in her friend "Laura's" dorm room before heading out downtown. They all went to another room, and then Emily went back to Laura's room to get her purse.
DEAR AMY: My daughter, 40, was married to a man who was mentally abusive. When she divorced him about five years ago, we were very happy. A few years after the divorce she went to therapy, but I don't know how much progress was made.
DEAR AMY: I am really scared for my younger sister. Because we have a history of skin cancer deaths in our family, I can't figure out why my mom would let my sister do this.
DEAR AMY: I have been married for more than 15 years and have two great kids with my wife. I didn't figure out my sexuality until after I was married. Now I've met someone in a similar predicament.
DEAR AMY: My daughter, who is almost 12 years old, visited a hospital a couple of months ago, and during an exam a nurse asked her if she uses birth control. Is this an appropriate question to ask a not-quite-12-year-old girl? Am I right?
