DR. WALLACE: Since my dad left two years ago, I’ve been overeating and feeling hopeless and depressed. I really didn’t think I was missing him, but over the past couple months I realized I miss him a lot, so my mom and I began therapy. I’m not sure why he left or where he went, since he took off without a word and has not contacted us since.

DR. WALLACE: I'm a 15-year-old girl and my little brother is a cute kid who is now 8. We both live with our mother. Our father does not live with us because my parents divorced a year ago. In fact, our father returned to the state he was born in after the divorce. This means he is now over 2,000 miles away, so I won't be seeing him any time in the near future.

DR. WALLACE: This is a hard letter to write to you. My father abused me and was sent to prison for it. This is the confusing part: My mother wants me to visit him in prison and tell him that I forgive him.
DR. WALLACE: I recall that you said in a past column that teachers are the most important school employees and principals are the least important. However, my mom has been a school secretary for over a decade, and she takes care of everything at her school. In fact, if the principal is out, the secretary takes over in case any emergency arises.
DR. WALLACE: Like most girls, I sometimes get invitations for a date from guys that I really don’t want to go out on a date with. Sometimes they are just not my type, and other times I just don’t feel comfortable with them or with who their friends are.
DR. WALLACE: I’m a 17-year-old female, and I have what’s called a very quick and very bad temper. When things don’t go my way, I have a tendency to “blow my top.”
DR. WALLACE: I’m an only child who lives with my mom and dad. I’m a good student and I’m just finishing up my freshman year of high school. I’m mature for my age and have told my parents that I don’t need a babysitter when they have to go out of town without me.
DR. WALLACE: I met my “unicorn” guy last year during COVID-19. He was my ideal person, and he cared about what I was thinking and feeling. But I blew it when we had a big, ugly fight (that I started), and the result was that we broke up.
DR. WALLACE: I'm a pretty good kid, but I did something very stupid last week. I went to a friend's house and we ended up snorting cocaine. I know it was really stupid, but we've all been cooped up so long with this darn pandemic, so my friend and I decided we wanted to cut loose for an evening to see how it felt.
