How do you deal with young coworkers who diss you?

How do you deal with young coworkers who diss you?

Rejected: Try to use the adage "kill them with kindness". Young coworkers who treat you poorly are either ignorant, inexperienced, or immature. Hopefully as young people grow older, they will learn to value the importance of treating others with respect regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, etc. Try to focus on your behavior, not theirs. Treat others the way you want to be treated and let the rest go. ...Read more

My young daughter age 7 seen my son 13 masterbate in his room.  How  do I deal with both of them. This  us so awkward ..Thanks ?

Dont get mad: Be open with both. Suggest that you tell daughter that her brother was "playing with himself and it's something that kids and adults do from time to time" and he should have done it in private. Tell your son that masturbation is normal for everyone, but should be done in private. ...Read more

Talk to your father: I have no easy answers for someone who shows a complete lack of understanding of the disease and no sympathy for the compromises you must make to deal with an incurable and often frustrating problem. I suggest you sit down with him and tell him how his denial of your problems makes you feel. Can your mother help you reason with him? Give him reading material about lupus. ...Read more

If you gave an 8yo 5mg singulair (montelukast) accidentally, vs. 4mg, is it no big deal? (The 5s are the younger sib's- sitter error). Why do they come so close?

If you gave an 8yo 5mg singulair (montelukast) accidentally, vs. 4mg, is it no big deal? (The 5s are the younger sib's- sitter error). Why do they come so close?

No big deal: Singulair (montelukast) is a very safe drug. I have been using it many years in practice. The dosing I have always found curious myself, dosing the 4 vs 5 mg. I welcome other Healthtap docs who know the specifics, but in general dosing is based upon the studies that the drug company utilizes to submit for FDA approval. I would just switch them both to 5 mg, for simplicity. ...Read more

. Husband is 64, im 45. He idolizes young women, and tells me negative words everydsy. How do I deal with this?

Couples therapy: Please get help. If he refuses to go to marriage counseling, then you go see a therapist by yourself so that you can better handle the situation. You should not have to "deal with" your husband making negative comments about you and to you, but if you cannot change the situation you can change how you react to it. ...Read more

How does a widowed father deal with a young lady who wants to marry him?

Depends: Do you have feelings for her? You must have at least made some entry level gestures. Does she love you or does she just want your cash, or security, or someone to help share childcare issues? Would she still want you if she had to sign a pre-nuptial agreement? Is there a significant age difference? So many questions. There are counselors for this as well. ...Read more
