The marriage question you’ve always wanted to ask

October 26, 2012 | admin fake diamond.jpg
This is the marriage question I would get every single day, if people said what was really on their minds. "How can I be happily married without really trying?" It depends, what do you mean by "really"? Given the choice between doing very little to improve their marriage, and doing a lot to improve their marriage, most spouses (husbands) will usually give the same answer, "Is this going to get back to my wife?" Based on that, here is the way to improve your relationship without hardly trying. Warning: this answer involves no drugs, illegal substances or physical violence, yet it's amazingly effective.

Right or Right

October 18, 2012 | admin always right.jpg
Groucho Marx famously remarked, “People who agree with me tend to be right.”   That gag works great for extracting a laugh from an audience, but won’t get even a smile from your wife. It’s no wonder then that he was divorced three times.   Proving how right you are is easy. Recognizing when you are wrong, that takes talent.   Or should I say, guts.   Therefore, when you get into an argument with your spouse, who is the one person you should never ever seek advice from?

Windows and Doors

October 11, 2012 | admin looking window.jpg
I wish I had a Bentley for every person who told me how closed minded their spouse was. And then a Ferrari for those same people who thought the opposite of their children.   If this happened rarely I would have thought people are unlucky in marriage and clever in parenting, and I would have one Bentley and one Ferrari. But that’s not what it is.   We all have windows and we all have doors.    There are things a sister can say that a parent couldn’t dream of, similarly a boss to an employee, an old man to a teenager. Everyone has a window, even your teenage son and here is the shocker: even your spouse!   The problem is, you keep knocking at the door instead of calling through the window.

My son won

September 19, 2012 | admin harleybaby.jpg
A mother of a teenage boy asked me this question: My son often has homework and we fight terribly over getting it done - which he does. But it's so draining. I am thinking of getting a tutor to help him do the work. What do you think?

I caught my son stealing

September 13, 2012 | admin child stealing.jpg
This was a question I recently received from an obviously distraught mother: I found a lot of money in my son’s room, he’s just started his teen years and I am fairly sure my wallet is missing some money. I am afraid to confront him, he has a self-confidence issue and he will think I don’t trust him. If he denies it I don’t have solid proof, all I have is a strong hunch. Plus, if he really didn’t take it, he’s going to think that when anything goes wrong I will immediately blame him. I have caught him doing things like this before, but it’s usually red-handed and he can’t get out of it. Last time I told him I was very disappointed. But I don’t know what I should do now, please help. Dear Distraught Mom, Sit down with him and present the facts making sure your words and tone do not imply any negative judgment. In your mind you should be thinking that he did NOT take the money. This is important, because it will reflect outwardly to him that you trust him. Then just ask him if he took it. Now, this is what you can expect:

How do your kids know you love them?

September 2, 2012 | admin sad kid.jpg
Every year, Erin Kurt would ask her students what their mother did that made them feel happy or loved. This is what she has to say: Surprisingly, many of the responses were the same. Year after year, in every country I taught, and in every type of demographic, the students were saying the same things and had the same message: What they enjoyed most, and what made their hearts happiest was when their mothers did simple things for or with them. Here is a list of the top ten things students around the world said they remembered and loved most about their mothers.

Are you on the Titanic?

August 23, 2012 | admin white star.jpg
When we consider that it took the Belfast shipbuilders three years to build the Titanic, it might seem disproportionate that it sank in less than five days. However, a simple appreciation of the forces at play will change the question to, how did it last that long? In the subsequent inquiries many new maritime safety regulations were enacted, not because the Titanic was an unusual boat, but precisely because without these measures such a tragedy is almost inevitable. In other words, the Titanic, a ship of such size and sophistication was almost doomed from the moment it left Southampton in 1912. The real question: why couldn't very smart people, who had a real interest in avoiding the inevitable, see it coming? Especially when we consider that no great genius was required on the part of the later investigative teams that pointed out the Titanic’s obvious failings. Which means to say, we wouldn’t catch it either.
