Dear Abby: Daughter resents parents who skipped graduation

Dear Abby: When I was a child, my parents skipped my elementary school graduation. For that matter, everyone did. My grandfather had just died, so Mom was mourning his loss. Fast-forward a few years — nobody attended my junior high graduation, either. Granted, Mom had a couple of stitches in her nose because my brother had accidentally hit her with a golf club the week before.

Reader scrapbook

Cooper, a nine-year-old old Golden Retriever, loves summertime because he gets to play in the sprinkler ... all ... day ... long. His owners, Terry Clark and Donna Becker of Wenatchee, say that first thing in the morning Cooper will whine at the back door and stomp his feet until someone turns the sprinkler on for him. It’s hard for him to understand that on rainy days his sprinkler friend can’t come out and play. Donna said it’s a good thing she can distract him with a cookie.

When Jim Black leads people on a robust walk three times a week on the grounds of the 120-acre Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., he’s got powerful company: God.

Study: Older moms much more likely to become old ladies

Attention, women who were declared to be of “advanced maternal age” even as their bellies swelled with life, who chased after a toddler with more patience than vigor, and who have simultaneously navigated menopause and parented an adolescent: Late-life mothering — if it occurred naturally at least — doubles your odds of living to an unusually old age, according to a new study.

Dear Abby: Expectant mom’s disappointment more common than she thinks

Dear Abby: When I read the letter from “Undeserving Title of Mommy” (March 4), the pregnant woman who was saddened by the fact that she’s expecting a baby boy instead of the girl she had hoped for, my heart went out to her. I was reminded of something I had read about, a condition called gender depression or gender disappointment.

Dear Abby: Woman is puzzled by guy who refuses to get naked

Dear Abby: I met a guy four months ago. Our relationship is new and pretty casual for the most part. We like each other’s company and spend nights together, but when we’re intimate, he keeps his clothes on — boxers and all. He is only 26, but he has told me about past relationships, so I know he has had experience.

Dear Abby: Bored, lonely teen should find hobby to fill her time

Dear Abby: My 19-year-old sister died two years ago from an overdose. I’m 13. We were very close when we were little, but during the four years before she passed away, my parents didn’t want us around each other for fear of her rubbing off on me, and she wasn’t home half the time anyway. A year earlier she went to rehab, and I remember talking with her about how she was clean for good and then ...

Dear Abby: Wife wearies of sharing house

Dear Abby: My husband, “Vinny,” and I were married 11 years when he left me for another woman. Eight months later he decided the grass wasn’t greener on that side of the fence and came back. Our marriage is better now than it was before the affair.

Dear Abby: Caregivers kit should be in homes

Dear Abby: Helping a parent or other adult relative handle their finances and health care can be a challenging gift to give. You want to honor their wishes and respect their boundaries, while at the same time acting in their best interest. But it can be hard to know where to begin and whom to trust, and you always wonder if you’re forgetting something.
