Q&As

Busy Spouse

My wife is in school—and when she isn’t in class, she’s either sleeping or doing her homework. I feel that she doesn’t make any time for me or our marriage. It seems the only time she really pays attention to me is when we have company. I’ve brought up my feelings before, but it only leads to fights. What should I do?

Chatty Husband

Whenever my husband talks to his family on the phone or in person, he tells them too many things. I have spoken to my husband about this and he says he understands my feelings, but he continues talking too much. What else can I do?

Chatty Wife

My wife tends to talk too much about things I feel are our business. I’ve spoken to her about it, but she doesn’t think it’s a big deal. Am I making too much over this?

Child Perfectionism

Child Responsibility

My 11-year-old son tends to blame others or circumstances whenever he is caught in misbehavior, embarrassed because he didn’t do something right, or just feeling inadequate. How can I teach him to own up to his mistakes and take responsibility for them?

Children's Privacy

My 15-year-old daughter jealously guards her privacy and I want to respect that. At the same time, I feel the need to know what she is up to. Is there a way to do both?

Christian Values after Divorce

My wife left me for another man and is living with him. She and I share custody of our 15-year-old daughter. That means my daughter is constantly exposed to this ungodly lifestyle. How do I communicate that her mothers’ living situation is wrong without sounding like an angry ex-husband criticizing his wife?

Church Division

Recently, my husband decided to leave our church because he said he doesn’t feel spiritually led there anymore. I see this as a division in our family because I haven’t heard God tell me to leave our church and go with my husband. Any advice?

Clean Rooms

She likes to look nice when we go out, but when we get home, she just throws her stuff on the floor. I'd really like her to keep her room neat and to learn to organize. Is this a battle worth fighting, or should we just let it go and close the door?

My son just won't keep his room clean. Is this a battle worth fighting? Should I just close the door?

Close Mother-in-law

My wife and I have been married three years, and we live a couple hundred miles from our parents. She talks to her mom every day on the phone, and when we visit her parents, it’s as if I don’t even exist—she and her mom go off in their own little clique. Is this a normal woman thing, or am I too defensive?

Co-Parenting

I divorced several years ago and my ex and his new wife allow our 12-year-old daughter to wear clothes, watch movies and go places that aren’t good for her. What is the best way for me to handle this without my daughter feeling caught in the middle?

Co-Parenting When Values Don't Match

My wife left me for another man and is living with him. She and I share custody of our 15-year-old daughter. That means my daughter is constantly exposed to this ungodly lifestyle.  My daughter attends church with me and has accepted Christ. But how do I communicate that her mother's living situation is wrong without sounding like an angry ex-husband criticizing his wife? I want my daughter to embrace purity, but her own mother is not setting that example.

Computer Addict

He spends most of his time in front of the screen and stays on until late into the night, usually coming to bed between 2 - 3 a.m. Am I being overly sensitive or expecting too much that he come to bed at a decent hour? What do I do?

Concerns About Music

My wife and I are very concerned with some of the music our son listens to.  What's the best way for us to talk with him about it -- do we just ignore it, forbid it or what?

Conflicts in Parenting

Confronting Adultry

My husband had an affair with a friend of mine. My husband and I have reconciled. But why do I feel the need to confront this woman? Is this right? What’s the correct way to handle it?
