I'M WORRIED ABOUT MY SON

Dear Willie D:

My son is 15 years old and he doesn't have any friends. He spends most of his time in his room on his computer, and listening to music. He only comes out to eat, use the bathroom, and leave the house. When I ask him if there is something bothering him, he always says no. Every time he leaves home for school I search his room for drugs and other clues that might signal trouble, but I can't find anything.

He is a good student, and doesn't cause trouble. However, to be his age and be so anti-social is not normal. Call it mother's intuition, but I believe he's hiding something. What are your thoughts?

I'M 15 AND READY TO LOSE MY V-CARD

Dear Willie D:

I'm crushing on a guy who lives near my cousin who I met a month ago. He is 17 and I'm 15. He is fun, and attractive. I can tell he likes me because he's always calling and texting me, asking how I'm doing. My cousin says he's a player, but I don't see him like that. I know all about safe sex, and how to avoid getting pregnant.

I have been holding out for the right guy, and I know I'm taking a chance with him, but I'm ready to have sex because I'm always horny. I like him but if he didn't want to see me again it would hurt, but it wouldn't be the end of the world. If I make sure he wears a condom, what's the worst thing that can happen besides him not wanting to see me again?

SHOULD I CHARGE MY KIDS' GROWN FRIENDS TO LIVE WITH ME?

Dear Willie D:

I have two adult children [a son and daughter] who live with me along with their three friends. One of the friends has a 2-year-old daughter. I pay all the bills. I'm retired, so I would like to spend my leisure time at home, but since my house is always crowded and noisy I spend most of my days at my sister's house, running errands so I don't have to be subjected to the chaos.

I don't mind my kids living with me rent-free, but I think their friends should be helping out financially. When I told my daughter that her friends need to start paying bills if they're going to live with us, she said they don't have any money. But the reason they don't have any money is because they don't work and refuse to seek employment.

The first time my daughter brought up the rent issue her friend said they were like family, and that they shouldn't have to pay bills because she doesn't have to. I feel bad for asking them to pay rent, but I think they should help out, don't you?

Why Do Women Idolize Marilyn Monroe? Help!

WHY DO SO MANY FEMALES IDOLIZE MARILYN MONROE?

Dear Willie D:

Please help me understand this. There is documented evidence that Marilyn Monroe was a homewrecker and a loose woman, to put it mildly. So why do countless females look up to her, and are so fascinated by her persona?

Putting It Mildly:

I used to wonder the same thing; not anymore. Besides her beauty, women are drawn to her because there's a piece of Marilyn Monroe in every woman. It's the piece that each woman relates to that makes her endearing to them. Marilyn was strong and fragile; fearless and afraid; happy and sad; lucid and incoherent; praised and scorned; innocuous and scandalous; liberated and enslaved; glamorous and disheveled; privileged and poor; desired and rejected.

She was also much more intelligent than people gave her credit for. The collective energy of her flaws, redemptive attributes, beauty, talent, smartness and her willingness to share her vulnerabilities with all of us is why Marilyn Monroe is so adored. To say she lived in a town where people make a living out of being fake, she was as real as they come.

SHOULD I TESTIFY AGAINST MY FRIEND'S EX-BOYFRIEND?

Dear Willie D:

I've been getting to know this woman, but haven't crossed the line intimately. I was over at her place and her child's father (they aren't together) came over and started some mess. She and I stood up for each other and he left only to call the cops. I ended up being told that I have a court date in which I was a circumstantial witness to a domestic dispute.

I was told by her lawyer to take the stand against this guy on behalf of this woman and all domestically abused women. I understand that it happens the other way around too. But now I'm in a situation where my life is at risk in the coming years for a woman who isn't even 100 percent sure about her commitment to me.

If I testify against him people will say, "Oh, he's a snitch." If I don't testify on my friend's behalf she'll never forgive me for not standing up for her. That'll eat me alive from within. What a tangled web we weave. What should I do?

I WANT TO LEARN HOW TO BE HAPPY

Dear Willie D:

I'm a computer analyst who makes over $80,000 a year. I like my job, but that's all it is; a job. I live in a nice house, and drive a nice car. I have a wife and 4-year-old daughter who I absolutely adore, but I'm not happy. I try to be happy and sometimes it works, but not for long. I may be happy for a day or two tops, and then I'm sad again. I don't know if I'm depressed or what.

I should be happy. After all, I have all of the things that society says should be a reflection of happiness. You're a successful man. Have you ever felt unhappy for long stretches of time? If so what did you do to cope?

Unhappy Feelings:

It depends on what your definition of long stretches of time is. The longest stretch of unhappiness for me was when my mother died. I was depressed for months. However, typically a long stretch of unhappiness for me is five minutes. That's because rather than internalizing setbacks, disappointments, and conflict, I compartmentalize them so that I can focus effectively on business and personal relationships.

I'M THINKING OF LEAVING MY BORING HUSBAND

Dear Willie D:

I have three kids and a husband who worships the ground I walk on. I love him, but I don't want to be married to him anymore. He does all of the right things: provides, treats me right and is a great father. I'm just not attracted to him anymore. After I got pregnant one year removed from high school we got married right away and went about the business of starting a life together forever.

The problem is I never got a chance to get out and explore other options. I just jumped into a lifetime commitment with the first man who was put in front of me. Sometimes I see other guys who I'm attracted to and I want to have sexual encounters with them, but I resist because of my marital status. I'm tired of living this lie. It's not fair to him or me. I just can't help but wonder that I'm missing out on something greater in life.

SHOULD BREASTFEEDING IN PUBLIC BE LEGAL?

Dear Willie D:

I walked inside of a McDonald's today and saw a woman breastfeeding her baby. What was particularly disturbing to me was that she had her whole breast exposed. I've heard about other stories of women breastfeeding in public, and business owners being sued for banning the practice.

What is your opinion on breastfeeding in public? By the way. I'm a woman.

Disturbing the Feast:

I don't have a problem with it as long as it's done with class. Some women are discreet with breastfeeding, while some will just whip out their breast for the world to see. I think breastfeeding is a private and intimate act. Some people say breasts can be seen on television and in magazines so they don't see a problem with it.

ARE MY IN-LAWS STILL MY IN-LAWS AFTER DIVORCE?

Dear Willie D:

I divorced my wife last year and now have custody of my three girls. Neither the girls nor I have seen their mother in over eight months. She's out living her life with her new man. The other day my oldest daughter, who is 11, asked me could she go to visit her mother's sister for the weekend. Her aunt has always treated her extra-nice, but she's the same aunt who told my ex-wife that she should leave me because I was no good.

I told my daughter no, because I no longer want my kids to be associated with my ex's side of the family. She started crying and I felt bad, but I just don't think it's a good idea to have my children around people who don't like me. Do you think I'm wrong?

EDUCATION

Dear Willie D:

I very much enjoyed your segment on TV One's Unsung. You are an inspiration to the younger generation. Unsung covered most of your life, but covered very little of your educational achievements. Which high school did you attend, and what year did you graduate?

Educated Fan:

I attended Forest Brook in Houston, which was later consolidated with M.B. Smiley, and named North Forest High School. I got kicked out of the whole school district two months before graduation for fighting, and never went back.

I was supposed to graduate in '86. Every time I think about how close I came to the finish line and didn't cross it, I'm reminded of Fred's infamous running insult of his son Lamont in the television series Sanford & Son: You big dummy!
