Q: Our 15-year-old daughter is very interested in a boy at school. Last week he asked her to go to a movie -- her first date. Any suggestions on how we should handle this?A: Dating is a part of your daughter's normal maturing process. The question suggests that you've agreed to let her go and we agree with you on that point. If you and your spouse haven't discussed your expectations about dating with her, now is the perfect time to begin. We believe it is much better to formulate general guidelines about matters such as dating beforehand, rather than having you and your daughter discover that you each had widely varying expectations abut what constitutes acceptable dating behavior.

Looking back on it now, Parthenia Colbert says she should have known long ago that something was wrong with her daughter.The first hint came in 1986 soon after Ms. Colbert moved to Kansas with her husband. Sherry, then 20 and an unwed mother, had chosen to stay in Annapolis. One day a friend of Sherry's called Ms. Colbert and told her Sherry was hooked on drugs. Ms. Colbert didn't believe it, but she flew back to Maryland to see for herself. Sherry's apartment was a mess and she didn't look well, but Sherry denied anything was wrong, and Ms. Colbert wanted to believe her daughter.

Q. I am a stay-at-home mother of an 18-month-old girl. Since she was 6 months old, she has shown a definite, often intense preference for her father -- particularly during stressful times. Most of the time, I try very hard not to overreact or even show much emotion about her choice, but I do occasionally feel hurt and rejected. I have read articles on development focusing on a child's shifting preferences, but my daughter's preference has been consistent. When I see other children clinging to their mothers, I wonder where I went wrong.

A ROLE REVERSAL I AM NOT ashamed to admit: my daughter has taken up the badge and gun of the food police. When my children were young, that was my role. I held out longer than most against fast food, and there was a starch, a protein and a vegetable every evening at dinner. However, during all that time, I was an admitted Diet Coke addict. I could barely make it to 11 a.m. before I had my first belt, and that bubbling brown liquid was never far from me after that. I had a Diet Coke in my cup-holder as I drove and in my hand as I walked.

HOW MANY TIMES have you watched a dance lesson, or soccer match, or piano recital, or art workshop and thought about how nice it would be to participate in some of your children's activities, perhaps for old time's sake?You know the fantasy -- you're nimble enough to dance on your toes again, fast enough to score the winning goal, or brave enough to play a character far racier than your role as a responsible spouse or parent.On such a whim, Laurie Borkowicz of Westminster snatched her daughter Ali's sheet music and auditioned for a part in September Song's production of "Bye Bye, Birdie."

Q. I have 8-year-old and 4-year-old daughters who are as different as night and day. About a year ago, I separated from their father, then got divorced. He was a lousy father who never spent any time with them alone. The girls and I now live in a house by ourselves. Their father gets them Tuesday and Thursday for about two hours and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m. He has a live-in girlfriend but claims they are just friends. The 8-year-old is afraid to spend the night with Daddy and doesn't even like to go over there.
