Ask Amy: Car sale goes sideways, feelings follow
Dear Amy: In your response to “Good Auntie,” who was wondering how to address their non-binary family member, you missed an educational lesson when you stated "...and loves her nieces and nephews without harsh judgment – just as they are." Unfortunately, you only used gendered identifiers.
The gender-neutral term for "the child of one's sibling" is "nibling."

Dear Every Day: During moments like this, my late mother would often wonder aloud: “Have I lived too long?”
Thank you for the lesson.
