Ask Amy: Estrangement follows police 'wellness check'
Dear Amy: Regarding your “Best Of” column about dragging a refusing teenager on “one last family vacation,” I'm on the teen's side.
I hated family vacations. My parents fought nonstop and because I was the oldest, I had to look after the younger ones.
When I was 17, I stopped going on vacation (I had a job), and it gave me some peace and quiet.
Dear Relieved!: This scenario was one I hadn’t anticipated, and yes – it sounds like a real trial for you.
