Keeping the same Girlfriend
I find it hard to keep the same girlfriend for more than a month. My mom says I should give up on girls but I think I have not found the right girl for me yet, What do you think? Tommy
I know what you mean. Covid has made dating much tougher. I think you should start with the basics. Spruce yourself up. Good hygiene goes a long way. Focus on the other person. give it a try.
Starting School - big Concerns
My son is about to start school. His name is Tim. I am afraid he will be teased for his size. What can I do to help.
Suzy from Calgary
You should talk to the principal about your concerns, The school can probably link Tim up with some older students to mentor him and look out for him.
Diets make me Anxious
This is hard to write about. I am quite over weight and I am getting teased at school. I have tried losing weight but this makes me anxious and when I get anxious I eat more. What do you suggest
This is a good question, Bob. I have found that getting help from Weight Watchers or exercising with friends is the best approach.
Walking the Dog
I got a dog for Christmas. How often should I take it for a walk?
You should take your dog for a walk at least 2 times a day.
