Ask Amy: Biological father and son can’t seem to talk

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I disagreed with your advice to “Appalled,” the consultant who was kissed on the lips by the director of a nonprofit she was consulting for.

The consultant should have spoken to him directly, rather than go to the board. Involving other people would be a mistake.

– Disagree

Dear Disagree: The board had just hired him; they should know about this serious breach.
