Q. This weekend, all my family will gather to honor my son......I haven't seen my husband for 6 months....what wisdom can you share?

A.   I am not sure what your son is being honored for - but congratulations. If I were you, I would do everything I could all weekend to keep the focus on your son and what he has accomplished. I would practice the phrases, "We can talk about that at a later date. That is interesting, why don't we email about that later. Maybe but this weekend is all about . . ." I am sure there will be attempts to create unnecessary drama and I would do my best to divert attention back to where it should be and deal with the other stuff at a later date.
