UK equestrian team competes in all levels at intercollegiate event

For Central Kentucky horse lovers, this is a great time of year. The Rolex Three-Day Event took place during the last weekend in April and the 142nd Kentucky Derby is May 7. But between those, there’s another horse event — the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association competition at the Kentucky Horse Park.

Date of nephew’s party causes family rift

My overbearing sister-in-law just moved her son’s birthday party to a week later. When we talked a month ago, I asked when it was planned and said great, because my son will be on a Boy Scout retreat the following weekend. Now, she moved the birthday party and is mad that my son won’t be there. We already paid for the retreat, and my son is torn because he wants to do both but can’t. Your advice? My sister-in-law is so mad she isn’t communicating with us.

Let perfectionist son enjoy being a kid

Whenever my 4-year-old son tries something new, he becomes frustrated if he has any difficulty with it. This happens when practicing numbers, letters or anything else I try to teach him. I tell him he’s doing fine and will do better with practice, but it’s not sinking in. He’s a perfectionist in that everything must be “just so.” It worries me, because we have depression, anxiety and OCD on both sides of the family. I’ve also heard that perfectionism is characteristic of oldest children. Does that also apply to only children? Could it be because his father and I have separated? How can I help him not be so hard on himself?
