Dear Carla, My sonís best friend is a female. She is always at our home, day and evening, but has never spent the night. They are 17. Recently my husband found her in our sonís room sleepy. She was fully dressed and so was he. Neither of them were under the covers. However, it was one in the morning. My son asked if she could spend the night. I was against it while my husband felt it was okay since they are platonic friends. We called her...

I love my girlfriend but I feel that she is too clingy. She wants to be around me every waking moment and gets offended when I tell her I need some space. She then gets an attitude and goes totally silent. When I try to address it, she denies having an attitude. But I donít believe her. Her behaviour is turning me off. I love her but I canít take her bratty ways.

Dear Carla: It is no secret on Facebook that my boyfriend and I are a couple, although our profiles are not connected. I notice that every post he makes, one particular girl always hits ďlikeĒ.
I know itís the cyberworld, but he told me before that she had a crush on him in the past. Iíve said nothing to him. Instead Iíve just sit back and observed. There is no open interaction with them, but who knows what happens in the inbox. I...

Dear Carla: I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for two years. He has a six-year-old son. I get along with his family but they do something that bothers me. They always invite his ex-girlfriend to family functions. I can understand on the childís birthday or holidays but itís every family event. This even bothers my boyfriend. He has said something about it but it falls on deaf ears. I do not have a personal issue with his ex but...

Dear Carla: This may seem petty but this situation is causing grief between me and my boyfriend. Weíve been together for six months and are happy except I take issue with the fact that he still has pictures of his ex-girlfriend on his Instagram profile. They have no children together so I see no reason why her pictures should still be there. I feel that he must have some sort of feelings for her. He says he doesnít. He says Iím making a big...

Dear Carla: A co-worker and I have a good relationship, or so I thought. We go to lunch together at least three times a week, talk on the phone outside of work hours and sometimes go to social events together. A few months ago she got engaged and she is set to be married next month. While he wedding is not going to be a huge one, she has invited some friends, but not me. My feelings are hurt. Should I say something? Iím really surprised.

Dear Carla: My childís father has never been in his life. My son is 12 years old and has seen his father maybe three times over the years. Iíve never bothered him for anything and our paths rarely cross. Two weeks ago, he tracked me down and said that he would like to get the opportunity to know our son. I told him I would get back to him.
I am not sure what to do. My son has had some behavioural issues at school and I feel a part of...

Dear Carla: We are SO ANNOYED. A family memberís ďotherĒ parent is adamant of leaving the child in a private nursery / preschool when the child is old enough to go to FREE Government pre-school. The ďother parentĒ has a steady job and a steady income while our family member is trying very hard to build up a business and does not have a steady income (the economy is not easy in Bermuda at all right now).
The other parent is being...

Dear Carla: It seems like no matter what I do nothing goes right in all areas of my life. I recently lost my job which has now added insult to injury. I am single and unhappy and donít know what I did to deserve this. People are always telling me to keep my head up but they donít know how hard that is. What should I do? óFEELING WORTHLESS

Dear Carla: I have several godchildren and I am actively involved in their lives. I always check on their grades at school and spend time with them whenever I can. However, I have an issue with one of their mothers. She is always asking me to spend money on my godson for various reasons.
While I donít mind, I feel that she is taking advantage of me. I do not have children myself and have bills to pay. But she thinks because I am a...

Dear Carla: I am going through a very trying time in my life and Iím doing my best to remain upbeat. However I have a relative who seems to constantly do everything to bring me down. They rarely offer words of support and when people ask them how I am doing, they make negative remarks and it seems like they brush my condition off. Some who have seen this firsthand think that they are acting like this because they are hurting, but their...
