The Family Project

Tuesday, March 6, 2018 by CAROLE GORNEY in Focus

Q. My son graduated from high school this past spring and is not working nor attending college. He says that nothing interests him. My husband and I have explained to him that he needs to figure out what he wants to do to support himself, but he just says he doesn’t like anything. In the meantime, he sleeps late, plays video games and hangs out with friends at night. We can’t support him forever. What do you suggest we do?

Dear Jacquelyn,

I’m struggling with children’s birthday party etiquette. My daughter will be eight in March, and we are planning a party. This year, my daughter would like to invite children from school, which I think would be fun. How do we decide who to invite, the length of the party, and the best time to open gifts? I’d like to use this opportunity to teach my daughter how to be a gracious party host.

Dear Reader,
