Hey Elderly Aunt, how do I tell my parents to turn off the cable news while they watch my child?

My parents watch my youngest child for me maybe once a month. They have a “news” program on a television in their home during almost all waking hours. I am strongly opposed to my child being exposed to the inaccurate and divisive vitriol that this media company is known for. How would you address this, while also expressing appreciation for the childcare?

Hey Elderly Aunt, how do I stop feeling like an inadequate parent/spouse/ professional?

Hey Elderly Aunt, I love my family, and I love my job. I put a lot of effort into spending enough time with both, but it never feels like it’s enough. Admittedly, I’m a perfectionist, but the constant juggling act and feeling of never having enough time takes away from my enjoyment of both my family and my work. How do I let go of this feeling that I can’t be an adequate parent/spouse and professional?

Hey Elderly Aunt, what the heck happened to the Baby Boomers’ moral compass?

Hey Elderly Aunt, I am confused by the overall change in the Baby Boomer generation. They were the Summer of Love and Give Peace a Chance generation, created Earth Day, and helped unify to push for Civil Rights. Now this same generation scapegoats non-white immigrants, supports rolling back important safety nets for our environment.

Hey Elderly Aunt, what happens when my longtime BFF and I have nothing in common now?

Dear Elderly Aunt,
What do you do when you have a friend you used to be *best* friends with, and you still love her dearly but you have literally nothing in common anymore and you don’t enjoy time the time you spend together anymore — but you also aren’t ready to give up that friendship because it meant so much to you?

Hey Elderly Aunt, can I be a Valentine’s Day scrooge?

Dear Elderly Aunt,
My partner wants to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, but I’ve never been a fan of the holiday—am I obligated to celebrate it?
