An Over Loving MIL

Dear Little Miss,

HI… I have a problem with my overly loving MIL.  She has single handedly raised her two sons. My husband is the younger one and we have been married for just 8 months.  Until now, I have been in the good book of my MIL. My problem is that she takes way too much interest in our house.  This time she bought curtains of her own choice, properly made to be hung at our place. I don’t like them at all.  I don’t know how to tell her I don’t like them and her son, my husband, refuses to do anything that might hurt her feelings.  There other things too, she gives us Read more…

Sister Is Pushing Us Out Of The Family

Dear Little Miss,

My SIL (husband’s sister) has tried so many times to push us and our 3 children out of the family. She makes my MIL side against us and manipulates her and the other siblings who are also both girls.

Sisters and Boyfriends

Dear Little Miss,

I am in 7th grade and there is this guy that rides my school bus and I like him.  He is my age but he told me that he likes my sister and he might ask her out. I really like him but he likes my older sister. What should I do?

Defending Your Child

Dear Little Miss,
 I need serious help here!  I know that this is extremely long, but I really need your advice.  My brother’s wife is making our lives miserable.  If you look under ‘pathological liar’ in the dictionary, you would find her picture.  She joined our family and tried to create conflict and drama since day one.  We have caught her in MANY lies and intentional hurtful situations.  Now, 7 years later, things have gotten much worse.
 Yesterday, SIL and my brother started telling our 6 year old that her Read more…
