Dear Abby | Learn to manage anger for kids

Dear Abby: I am a 23-year-old woman, and I know I should have a lot more patience than I do right now. I’m happily married with two beautiful children. After work when I return home, I’m fine for the first hour or so. But if my children start to get loud or keep asking me to do something, I get extremely aggravated.

From thrift-store find to showstopper

Dear Abby | Sister worries hotel plans might insult rest of family

Dear Abby: My sister and her family recently moved out of state after having lived near our family all her life. Mom and I want to visit her this year, but she likely won’t have enough room for us in the house because she has three kids and only three bedrooms. She does have a sofa bed and an air mattress, but neither my mother nor I want to sleep on them. Both of us suffer from back and knee problems and don’t want to be uncomfortable.

The recent Instagram trend of melting kids’ crayons with coconut oil to make vibrant lipsticks and eyeliners at home is actually a rehashed trend that’s been around for a while.

But is it safe to paint your face with crayons?

Dear Abby | High school friend turned enemy continues her attacks

Dear Abby | Wife who escaped abusive marriage must not go back

Dear Abby: In the beginning of our marriage there was physical abuse and marital rape. I stayed anyway. Over the years we had two children. My husband, “Seth,” and I don’t communicate because he has refused to talk about any issues we have. During the last few years, my youngest son has also become physically abusive to me.
