Weak Air Conditioner?

I just moved into a new townhouse for the school year and it's stifling hot in my upstairs bedroom! We have central air -- and it's cool enough downstairs. But I can't sleep in the heat. What should I do? -- Isabella in Indianapolis

What She's Really Saying

When I'm talking to my sister, I feel like she's not really telling me what she's thinking. I'll notice an uptick in her voice, or a facial smirk. I'll repeat the question, and ask if something's on her mind, but to no avail. What do I do? -- Confused Carl

The Hard of Hearing

Family and friends come to me with tech help, but they won't listen to my recommendations. Oftentimes they ignore my advice and turn to someone else ... but then call me up later to clean up the mess their "tech friend" created. What do I do? -- Mad Mark

The Sick Mother

My mother's nursing home does not feel she needs a doctor to check in on her. On the phone, my mother tells me she is certain something is wrong. What do I do? -- Jennifer in Jasper

The Ungrateful Children

My husband and I have always believed in an allowance for our children -- we didn't want them to be distracted from school by jobs. But now that they're college students, all they want to do is spend our money like crazy. Why do they do this? -- Betty in Birmingham
