Are there moments you feel a slight distance between you and your spouse? Do you worry that distance means your partner no longer loves you? My husband and I felt this way early in our marriage, and it took a while before we decided to openly discuss how we felt. We understood the distance had nothing to do with how much we loved each other and a lot to do with a lack of time together. We hadn't noticed how the extracurricular activities and overtime at work had consumed most of our personal time, greatly reducing our time together.

When I became a daddy for the first time, it was to a little girl. As she grew up, she loved to play tea party, princess party and loved to be called cutie, sweetie and beautiful. In fact, she would even ask me "You think I'm beautiful, don't you daddy?" And I'd always reply "You're the most beautiful girl in the whole world, sweetie". Then she would giggle, grin and give me a hug. She's ten years old now, and while she doesn't like to play tea party so much, she still loves it ...

Q: My 13-year-old son has developed overwhelming anxiety about going to school. This began a year ago, but has gotten steadily worse since then. At this point he fights me every morning about going to school, and even if I can persuade him to get in the car, he won't get out. If I try to force him, he becomes nearly hysterical. I'm a stay-at-home mom, so there have been many days this year when I've simply taken him back home. His principal and everyone at the school say he's fine once he's in the ...
