Dear Abbey: When I stopped by my brother’s house a few weeks ago, he said his nine-year-old son had stranded in his bedroom. He was punished for snooping on his father’s vintage porn collection.

At first, I got angry with my brother and his wife. Because it’s their fault that boys have access to it, and boys are naturally curious. But when I learned what his punishment was, I was furious. Their “great” idea was to get sick of pornography by forcing their nephew to watch the entire collection for three hours instead of playing outside.

Maybe this tactic works for smoking and chewing tobacco, but this seemed very wrong. I was very appalled and stepped over. I went straight into my nephew’s room and told him he was allowed to go out and play. Abby, what do you think? Am I ridiculous? What should i have done? — Appeal in Ohio

Dear Appard: The punishment for the child was extreme and inappropriate. All you had to do was point out to your brother and sister-in-law that their punishment might have been counterproductive. Instead of acting as an aversion therapy, it can further stimulate the son’s appetite. You might also have suggested consulting a child psychologist on how to deal with your son’s up-and-coming sexual curiosity, but this is perfectly normal and the collection will now be keyed and keyed. I urged you to put it.

Dear Abbey: I recently met a very nice woman online. During our first call, she told me that an injury she had received a few months ago left her injured. I don’t care, so I want to know more.

From the way she responded to a few things, I got the impression that she still agrees with what happened, as everyone does. I have never experienced this situation and from a dating point of view I am not sure if it is right to engage with someone who is experiencing it. Any opinions? — Provisional in Indiana

Dear Provisional: Yes, that’s right, but only if you can be supportive and patient when it has to be a very emotionally destructive time in this woman’s life. She is confident that she can use a supportive male friend right now if the two can continue to have an open and honest dialogue.

Dear Abbey: My 30 year old son lives with me for financial reasons, and I love him dearly. He helps with billing and has a full-time job. My only problem with him is that he has been wearing the same pants for weeks without washing and has not washed the sheets for months. I didn’t raise him that way. He takes a shower every night.

He has only one pair of trousers and I can’t get him to buy another pair. I complained to him several times about the stench. How can I get him to change his way? — Texas Tired Mother

Dear Tired: At this point in his life, that may not be possible. It seems strange that a stinking person works full-time, but I would like to say a few words. The simplest solution to your problem may be you wash his bedding every few weeks. For the fact that he only has one pair of trousers, buy him trousers for the next birthday or Christmas, whichever comes first.
