Dear abby on teen dating
As to removing the television/gaming from his bedroom, his mother should warn him in advance that it will happen if his grades don't improve.Interacting with others doesn't come naturally to everyone. Learning to make eye contact, carry on a conversation and pick up on social cues are skills people learn in person, not by texting.His mother was on her cellphone as I sat there wondering how long I'd wait.Jon's grades have dropped and he doesn't sleep well.Call me stupid to complain, but he is causing me more work, and I don't know what to do.This is the second marriage for both of us, and I am trying hard to be a kinder, gentler wife.I can see he is so connected to his electronics that he's disconnected from people.
We have been dating for about a week, but now I realize I'm just not ready to start dating. Also, I don't want a boyfriend because I'm moving in a month. I have a hunch that once you have moved, distance will solve your problem for you.
DEAR ABBY: I've been dating a wonderful woman for two years.
She has a son in high school I'll call "Jon." Like many teens I see, he is constantly on his smartphone, his school-required tablet or playing video games on the TV in his bedroom. Jon had headphones on and was watching videos online while we were at a restaurant.
When my husband washes the dishes, pots and pans, he misses spots, sometimes lots of them.
Also, he is impatient and doesn't want to wait the three minutes it takes for the hot water to get to the kitchen, so he washes in cold water.
My parents think I'm not talking to Aidan, but I really am.
