Keeping the same Girlfriend

Dear Jill
I find it hard to keep the same girlfriend for more than a month. My mom says I should give up on girls but I think I have not found the right girl for me yet, What do you think? Tommy

Dear Tommy,
I know what you mean. Covid has made dating much tougher. I think you should start with the basics. Spruce yourself up. Good hygiene goes a long way. Focus on the other person. give it a try.
Take care,
Jill

Starting School - big Concerns

Dear Jill,
My son is about to start school. His name is Tim. I am afraid he will be teased for his size. What can I do to help.
Suzy from Calgary

Dear Suzy,
You should talk to the principal about your concerns, The school can probably link Tim up with some older students to mentor him and look out for him.
Take care,
Jill

Diets make me Anxious

Dear Jill,
This is hard to write about. I am quite over weight and I am getting teased at school. I have tried losing weight but this makes me anxious and when I get anxious I eat more. What do you suggest
Bob

Dear Bob,
This is a good question, Bob. I have found that getting help from Weight Watchers or exercising with friends is the best approach.
Take care
