Boy Crazy!
Help! I'm raising my 14-year-old granddaughter. Her father's not in her life, and she's so boy crazy, I don't know what to do.

To Roam, or Not to Roam?
I'm a single mom of a 12-year-old girl. I feel uncomfortable letting my preteen go with her friends to the park where I cannot see them, or walk some distance away to get ice cream—but this is what kids do in my area! I don't want to be telling my daughter "no" all the time, so I let her carry my cell phone for safety reasons. What are the right boundaries to set for her age?
Only the Lonely
Our 6th-grade son seems to have no real friendships. Is this normal?
My Nephew's Abandoned
I'm concerned about my three-year-old nephew, who was raised for 18 months by his divorced mother. My sister then left him with his remarried father and new wife while she received intense mental-health care. His father now feels he can no longer handle his son because he's causing problems with his marriage. I don't feel my sister's strong enough to raise my nephew, but I'm not sure what to do.
