Dear Abby: Too busy for daily Facebook messages

Dear Abby: Readers offer advice to wife whose husband tunes her out

DEAR ABBY: I am responding to “Tired of Talking to Myself,” whose husband’s ears slam shut when she begins to speak.  “Tired” needs to look at her own behavior because I have never seen one partner be the only guilty one.

Dear Abby: Son needs to know truth about abuse

DEAR ABBY: My daughter, “Meg,” was sexually abused at the age of 3 by her father 25 years ago. “Emile” and I were divorced, but he had visitation. Meg has no relationship now with her father, but her brother does. Ian is now expecting a child and knows nothing about the abuse his sister suffered.

But how do I NOT tell him?
