Work Hard but Can’t Get Ahead?

Joan JerkovichSeptember 1, 2014

What can I do about the fact that no matter how hard I work I can’t ever seem to get ahead? In these difficult economic times, I hear this all too often… so many people have lost their jobs and are struggling either to find a job or make do in a new job where their pay and benefits have been cut. Lean times come and go (or at least I remain hopeful that better times will again find us), so ac...

Smut in the Workplace

Joan JerkovichAugust 30, 2014

You know who you are. Your day at the office starts with logging on to the company web server. You do a quick check of your emails then think a quick look at the breaking news and trending topics for today won’t take but a couple minutes of your time. You’re tempted. Always. And the desktop file labeled “Misc. Stuff” is calling to you. At least you knew better than to label it “Misc. Smu...

The Coach who Inspired Fatherless Boys

Joan JerkovichAugust 29, 2014

Bill Courtney’s father left him and his mother when he was just four years old. Years later, on the night of his winning football game, he remembers watching his teammates walk off the field, side by side, with their fathers helping carry their pads and helmets, discussing the game as they walked together. Young Bill walked off the field alone. The experience of growing up without a father insp...

Son Caught Stealing?

Joan JerkovichAugust 26, 2014

Our 18 year old son refuses to get a job and was caught stealing last year and he stole from his fathers wallet for over two years. We allowed the law to restrict him for stealing and we charged him double what he stole from us as parents. This year he was caught by his parents with alcohol in his vehicle. We are requiring him to pay for our umbrella policy and to pay for his own auto insurance....

Attend Which Wedding? (Joan vs. Dr. Laura)

Joan JerkovichAugust 22, 2014

Just for fun, I’m going to pose a question I heard Dr. Laura Schlessinger answer on her radio talk show… The female caller told Dr. Laura that her question related to her two good girl friends. The two friends were not friends with each other, just the caller. The question posed to Dr. Laura was that each of the friends had daughters who were getting married, and the save-the-dates came out w...

Hit the OFF Switch on the Negative Self-Talk

Joan JerkovichAugust 20, 2014

My life sucks. I’m a failure. How could I be so stupid? I never seem to do anything right. I’m not going to be able to pull that off. There’s no way I can get all this done. No one ever appreciates what I do anyway. And on the story goes… If this is the story playing out in your head, it’s time to consider hitting the OFF switch on the negative self-talk! If you are someone who clearl...

Empty Nest?

Joan JerkovichAugust 18, 2014

My son graduated this year and I’ve been a mess this whole past year just thinking of him leaving for college. I’ve been one of those moms who helped with all the school events and was really involved. I’m not dealing with this very well. This empty nest thing is already worse than I thought. How am I going to get through this? This can be really tough on moms, and some dads have a real...

Husband’s Party Drinking? (part 2)

Joan JerkovichAugust 13, 2014

My husband has gotten himself in to trouble with drinking, and I know he’s been trying to curb the habit, but we recently were at a party with family and friends where he was getting sloppy and loud. It made me want to pack up and go home early. He knows his drinking too much makes me mad, so at the party he was sneaking around with his gang of drinking buddies, and they were hitting it hard, ...

Eeew! Embarrassing Text?

Joan JerkovichAugust 8, 2014

I sent a text out to the wrong person and am dying of embarrassment. I sent the text to a man I work with who has the same first name as my husband. I didn’t realize until after the text was sent that it went to the wrong person. The text I sent was complaining to my husband about a vaginal itch I’d been suffering with, asking him to pick something up from the pharmacy on his way home from w...
