DEAR ABBY: My spouse has been working as a instructor’s assistant for almost 10 years. A number of years in the past, she grew to become an assistant in a brand new college and has been on this explicit classroom because it opened. She was assigned a instructor, “Mrs. Smith,” a pair years in and has been together with her ever since.
  My spouse has had some crucial issues to say a few occasions about different lecturers, and issues she (and I) felt had been unsuitable. However the superintendent of our county at all times guidelines for the lecturers as a result of they went to school. Mrs. Smith is aware of this and berates my spouse continually. My spouse gained’t go to the principal as a result of he at all times sides with the lecturers.
  I’m about at my wits’ finish. I simply informed her I used to be writing you, and right here’s why: I so need to say one thing to this instructor, BUT I WON’T as a result of it’s my spouse’s job. I simply want to assist her with out inflicting bother within the warmth of the second. — SUPPORTIVE HUSBAND IN THE EAST

If she’s being “berated continually,” the instructor to whom she is assigned has been making a irritating and hostile working surroundings. It’s time for her to have a frank dialog with that instructor and inform her she just isn’t pleased with the way in which she’s being handled. Maybe she may ask to be assigned to a different classroom. Nevertheless, if that isn’t possible, as a result of your spouse is sad in that college district, she ought to look elsewhere for employment.
 DEAR ABBY: My just lately married daughter and my husband had a silly argument earlier than Sunday dinner six weeks in the past and haven’t spoken since. I like my daughter very a lot and need to see her, however she refuses to return right here as she feels her dad owes her an apology.
  She and her husband had been late (as ordinary) for dinner, and my husband (who’s ailing and never sleeping properly) simply misplaced it and she or he burst into tears. I felt for each of them. Neither of them ate dinner, and neither one spoke. They’ve texted one another, however haven’t seen one another. It’s stressing me out big-time.
  Sunday dinners have been placed on maintain, and my persistence is sporting skinny. I believe they’re each within the unsuitable and want to speak, however neither will make the primary transfer. Any concepts? — MOM & WIFE TO THE STUBBORN

He was definitely inside his rights to level out to your daughter and her husband that their recurring tardiness is impolite and thoughtless. They had been lengthy overdue in listening to it.
  Your daughter and son-in-law owe him — and YOU — an apology. Help your husband and hope your self-centered daughter matures sufficient to confess they had been unsuitable and apologize.
