Angry Mom
"I have a hard time disciplining my 5-year-old without losing my temper. I try to stay calm, but I find myself getting so angry that I yell at him or sometimes even smack him. I know this isn't good, but I'm a single mom and I don't know how to deal with him. He has started hitting himself now and saying he's a bad boy, so I know my reactions are affecting him. I don't want to ruin him with bad parenting. Please help."

A Broken Relationship
"I have a 12-year-old daughter and our relationship is very strained. She has admitted that she is scared of me because I have a hot temper, but I'm trying hard to change the way I respond to her. Still it seems as if she has a wall built around herself and I can't get through. I desperately want us to have a close, loving relationship but I don't know where to start."

Dealing with Dad's Drinking
"Our children-ages 16, 13, and 11-are really struggling with their dad, a non-Christian and an alcoholic. We pray for him often, but it's still difficult. When sober, he's a wonderful father and husband, but when he drinks he's sullen and moody. The older kids are pulling away from him. How can I help our children deal with this situation in a healthy way?"
