Q: My 5-year-old daughter relies on me far too much. All through the day, she asks me to do simple things for her like get her a glass of water or help her put on her shoes - things she is able to do for herself. If I don't cooperate, she begins to whine, then cry. It's driving me crazy.

When that happens, people are inclined to begin unwittingly engaging in self-defeating behavior.

Was this winter cold enough for you? I can't ever remember a winter when I had to dress so warmly for such long periods of time. And if we found it cold, hopefully some of our native insects did as well. Wouldn't it be nice if some of the mosquitoes didn't make it to spring? That certainly would lessen some of our health concerns and let us enjoy the benefits of living in coastal Georgia.
