"Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered" (Rom. 8 KJV).

QUESTION: I don't know what to do with my son. Since he started dating, his whole attitude has changed for the worse. He's like a completely different person sometimes.

ANSWER: Pray. My son wasn't dating at the time, but he went through the same thing in the seventh grade. We put him in a private secular school where many of the kids were snobbish. There was a certain way he had to handle himself in order to function, but he didn't know how to turn it off when he left school. He would treat us with the same attitude that he had all day in school. So I prayed and then sat him down and talked with him. Once he got past his emotions, he listened. But prayer really works. Never underestimate its power.

QUESTION: If a man grew up with his mother making all the decisions and a woman grew up with her mother making all the decisions, it seems to me that they're going to have a problem trying to please each other when they get together. He might let her make all the decisions and then resent it. And she might not respect that fact that she is making all the decisions. How should they work it out?

ANSWER: This happens all the time. They just need to use some wisdom in advance. They should both take turns making decisions about particular matters. However, the husband is the head of the home. All decisions should be made together after communication, but the responsibility of making any final decisions is his.

After a time, they each should feel comfortable in their roles, and, in the process, know what the other one likes and how to please one another better.
