My teenage daughter is beautiful inside and out. But lately, she wants to wear a shirt that is way too tight and hiking her skirt up.

My 13-year-old daughter has disengaged this past year. She no longer enjoys doing the things she use to do. How can we help?

Our 16-year-old son was caught doing inappropriate things on his phone. He had been caught before, was warned and more restrictions were put. This time it was worse. One of his friends created an account for him and it jeopardized my husband since the phone is in his account. My husband is so upset because he says my son feels no remorse or he doesn’t seem sorry. This morning my husband told me he is seriously considering just giving him a flip phone. I really don’t want to go to that extreme. I think with more restrictions and more guidance he will be okay. I’m just worried this will drive him further away from us.

My son is 16 and he told me he is gay. I was shocked and my world fell apart. I hope this is reversible while he is still a teenager. Need some orientation because I really don’t want him to go this path.

My 19-year-old daughter moved out of our home in May and is living with a man 10 years older than her. For many reasons, we believe she may have a sexual addiction. We would like to bring up this idea of addiction with her but want to do it in the best, most loving way. Any ideas how we can encourage her to consider this possibility of addiction when she lives far away from us?

My husband, the father of my children, passed in 2009. I noticed some time after that my son was lying a lot. My son is now 18 and lies about everything. I don’t understand why anyone would lie like this. I taught my children the importance of being honest and l have done my best to lead by example.

My 33-year-old daughter recently moved back in with me with her six kids and I realize that she doesn’t parent at all. And, my daughter does not work and expects me to pay all the bills. She’s not even taking care of the house or cleaning up herself. If I say anything she doesn’t like, she threatens to move out and not let me see my grandkids. I’m at my wits end what do I do?
