Ask Amy: Troubled son keeps coming back for more
If you can afford to, you might consider offering to pay his first semester’s tuition at his local community college.
This offer of a gift from you might inspire your teenage grandson to press on with his education, as well as demonstrate your faith in his future.
Community colleges are a great and affordable bridge for students to continue their education, and have helped many young people to kick-start their passion for learning.
Dear Amy: Thank you for standing up for restaurant servers, who have an extremely tough job these days.
I am a server. I worked while wearing a mask when customers chose not to, I worked extra hours when other staff were sick or quit, I have absolutely done my best under extremely challenging circumstances, and I live off of my tips.
Dear Grateful: I hope your employers and customers show their gratitude to you.
