My daughter is seeing a guy from a different religion. She’s in college and refuses to end the relation. We hail from a very conservative Hindu family. We are very worried.

As a college going adult, your daughter surely has an idea about her family and its background. If she is into a relation with a guy, I’m sure she understands the consequences. You’ll can surely speak to her and explain your expectations and concern. But the chance of letting the relation go is minimal. Time is the only factor that can alter things and lets hope everything happens for the best. Handle it with patience and peace.
My son is 17 years old. A few days back I saw his cellphone loaded with porn clips. We are extremely shocked as he comes across as a very decent kid! How to speak to him about this?

The growing adults are always curious about sex. As they have limited scope to explore, pornography is a vent. Request you not to worry about this and let him handle his fantasies and desire his way. Just be watchful about the company he keeps and be a good friend to him.
Don’t make him conscious about what you’ve seen as this will make him extra careful. Let him have a good journey towards manhood and treat him as an adult. Your boy is almost a man now and there’s nothing wrong about it!
In a party last week, I saw my husband kissing a woman. She is our friend’s sister. This has shocked me. But, I don’t observe any change in his attitude towards me. What should I do?
Sometimes we land up doing somethings which in a normal situation, we can’t even imagine! As a wife you have all the rights to question him about his act. You should let him know what you had seen and how you felt about it.
There’s nothing wrong in a constructive confrontation. As a married couple, both have certain responsibilities and decorum that need to be maintained. Have a polite talk and express your feelings. This will help you clear the cloud.
My girlfriend insists on playing safe. I hate it. How can I convince her to have it normally?
It is but natural that your girlfriend believes in precaution. This protects both of you. Not only from unwanted situations but from dreadful diseases too. Even I would advice you to remember: prevention is always better than cure!
