My new husband loves "Timmy" and is a wonderful father to him. Thanks to his encouragement and generosity, he has helped me be more supportive of Timmy's relationship with his father. I have tried to be kind to Timmy's father and stepmother, and have gone out of my way to accommodate their schedules. We have even loaned them money to help pay some bills. I do this because I love my son.<p>Updated: Sun Sep 29, 2019</p> 52fe4de1aa9375dfc98a053d9d47bd68 Classic Ann Landers for 09/22/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/09/19/classic-ann-landers-de7ca Sun, 22 Sep 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

A few weeks ago, I put a personal ad online, and one of the responses was from a 45-year-old woman. She seemed to be exactly what I wanted &#8212; pretty, intelligent, independent and with a good sense of humor.

These letters originally appeared in 1999.</p> <p>Dear Ann Landers: I am writing about the letter from the woman who was concerned about her 11-year-old step-grandchild, Caitlin. It seems the girl dresses like an adult, often provocatively, and flaunts her body "inappropriately." Her stepfather showed her photos of well-endowed males in an underwear catalog and asked, "What do you think of this?" Caitlin looked bored. It was obvious that it was nothing new to her. She also kisses her 3-year-old brother on the mouth. The child's grandfather sees her as "caring." The astute, observant grandmother, however, sees something else.<p>Updated: Sun Jul 21, 2019</p> 42791b9d9f3c3319c9fcff4c98204aab Classic Ann Landers for 07/14/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/07/19/classic-ann-landers-3b671 Sun, 14 Jul 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

The law states that the mother must give an accounting to the father on how his child-support money is spent. This is reasonable and makes a good story, but that's as far as it goes. The truth is, she can do what she pleases with the money.<p>Updated: Sun Jun 02, 2019</p>
