• Searching for adopted child?

    A close friend of mine gave a child up for adoption almost 40 years ago. She had no choice in the matter and has always loved him and thought about him. However, with his best interests in mind, she has never searched for him. Now that he is certainly an adult, and she is getting older, she would very much like to locate him.

    A close friend of mine gave a child up for adoption almost 40 years ago. She had no choice in the matter and has always loved him and thought about him. However, with his best interests in mind, she has never searched for him. Now that he is certainly an adult, and she is getting older, she would very much like to locate him. She never had any other children. She has only the most basic information: date-of-birth, place, etc. Adoptions were very secretive when he was placed. Has anyone else done this? How would you advise her to proceed? I am trying my best to assist her. At his age, her son can certainly make up his own mind as to whether he wants to know her.

  • Chill pill for my dog?

    I have a Benji-like terrier mix who's a real sweetheart. He's not aggressive and is basically very friendly. The one exception to that rule is when we're out for a walk and are approached by another (bigger) dog. Even if the dog only appears curious and not aggressive, my dog starts to get defensive and growls after a few minutes. ... show more
    I have a Benji-like terrier mix who's a real sweetheart. He's not aggressive and is basically very friendly. The one exception to that rule is when we're out for a walk and are approached by another (bigger) dog. Even if the dog only appears curious and not aggressive, my dog starts to get defensive and growls after a few minutes. Obviously, these bigger dogs could have him for lunch. I'm sure he's a bit intimidated by the size of these other dogs. However, most of them are friendly and just want to get to know him. Is there anything I can do that will help calm him and just make a new friend or two?

  • For men of all ages?

    I have a bet with a friend of mine. One of us thinks the following quotation is true for any man of any age, "The way to a man's heart is through his zipper." Do you agree or disagree? Elaborate if you wish.

  • Why isn't it enough?

    If you have found the religion that's right for you, or if you're not religious at all, why can't you be satisfied with your situation and not try to convert others or persuade others that your way is the only right way? People are entitled to their own beliefs, or non-beliefs. Why the need to name-call and finger-point?

  • Helping someone with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

    I am in a relationship with someone who has PTSD. We have known each other for awhile, but have just started getting really close. I know that he has PTSD. What can I do to reassure him about our relationship and to make him feel secure with me? I care very much for him. His disorder was caused by a bad relationship and a couple of other incidents.
