Dear AVENUE - My Husband's Job is Stressing All of Us

posted on October 04, 2017 posted in Blog

Dear AVENUE

My husband has a very stressful job and he complains about it every day.  There’s a lot of conflict between him and one of his colleagues and he’s not good at managing it.  When he comes home, he’s in a bad mood, sometimes he barely speak to me and the kids.  It’s been going on for an age and it’s really awful.  I try to speak to him about it but he just barks at me, saying I don’t understand.  I see the children watching the clock, waiting for Dad to come home and they scarper before he does.  It’s all becoming unbearable, please help.

Dear AVENUE - Step Family Holidays Without the Tears

posted on August 14, 2017 posted in Blog

Dear AVENUE

My partner and I both have children from our previous marriages.  He wants us all to go on a family holiday but we haven’t been together for very long and our children are all different ages from 4 to 14.  I can’t help thinking it will end in tears but he is so enthusiastic about the idea.  What should I do?

Dear AVENUE - My Partner is Such a Flirt

posted on November 12, 2016 posted in Blog

Dear AVENUE

My partner is such a flirt.  Every time we go out, he spends more time eyeing up other women than paying any attention to me.  It doesn’t matter if we’re out for dinner or at the supermarket, it’s so embarrassing and humiliating. When I pull him up about it, he says I’m being too sensitive.  Am I overreacting?

Dear AVENUE - My Sister-in-Law is Trying to Pilfer The Family Jewels

posted on August 27, 2016 posted in Blog

Dear AVENUE

My dear old Mum passed away last year and my sister-in-law is trying to pilfer some of her jewellery, paintings and the silverware. I’m absolutely livid, especially as my brother is being his usual passive self and saying nothing, he’s so hen-pecked! It’s hard for me to talk to him because she’s always there and he constantly defends her, whatever the circumstances. I’m afraid she’ll help herself to things when I’m not there. What can I do that won’t cause a huge family bust up?

Dear AVENUE - My Mother is in Her Seventies and Still Drives Me Crazy

posted on March 12, 2016 posted in Blog

Dear AVENUE

My mother is in her seventies and we have never got along that well.  She can be pretty nasty to me and is very demanding.  Because of her ill health, I do a lot of running around for her, do her shopping, take her to appointments and clean her house. Nothing is ever good enough and I can never wait to leave.  On top of that, my brother shares none of the responsibility.
