Living with Children: Teachers ‘stripped of permission to punish’

For the record, I believe in the concept of public (aka, taxpayer-funded, government, "free") schools. I attended public schools and obtained an excellent education that challenged my intellect and imparted a broad understanding of the world and my place in it. I am forever grateful to my teachers. Some were more likeable than others, but they were all dedicated to their craft and mission.

Ask Mr. Dad: Title IX: A good thing gone bad

Dear Mr. Dad: In one of your columns a month or so ago, you took a swipe at Title IX, which most people think has done a great job of bringing equity to college sports. You even called it "dangerous." I don't see what there is to complain about. Please explain.

Ex-etiquette: ‘I hate my life, I want to go back to my ex’

Q: I recently remarried, but I'm miserable. My husband drives me crazy, his ex-wife is psycho, and his children run the show. After three years and eleven months, my ex has realized the error of his ways and has been calling me. He tells me he's sorry that he ran off with "that woman" and wants to go back together. I hate my life, I want to go back to my ex and I have absolutely no idea how to handle this. What's good ex-etiquette?
