Let’s talk about sex, or maybe not, teens are saying. A recent study has shown that teens want to talk about sex with their parents more than their parents want to. Just over 50% of mums and dads express some level of unease at having the sex talk, compared to 82% of teens. So it looks like parents are far from alone in their discomfort. However, with such an important topic, how do we get our teens to open up and talk about it with us.

Isabelle: I wonder what my purpose is... Hugo Cabret: Everything has a purpose, clocks tell you the time, trains takes you to places. I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine.

Why do people cheat on their partners? Why do others have affairs that their partners know about? Here are some of the reasons for cheating that I have encountered in my many years of counseling.
One of the worst types of divorce is when one of the spouses is in it for the fight instead of trying to make it amiable and in the best interest of the children.
