A Mother's Ill Effect

My mother is very judgmental and it's causing problems for my girlfriend, who came from a very supportive, non-criticising family. How do I fix this? -- Mulling Michael

Dear Michael,

Call your mother out when she's making judgmental statements.  Do this as they happen.  She needs to learn how her words are affecting those around her.

Do something.  This is 2009.  Your girlfriend is not going to stay with someone who won't stand up to his mother.

If hurt feelings don't persuade her, appeal to her sense of social etiquette:  needlessly attacking family and friends verbally is just plain rude.

Do something.  This is 2009.  Your girlfriend is not going to stay with someone who won't stand up to his mother.
