A 3-Month Subscription to Spiritual Cinema. Send a family gift of meaningful movies and documentaries that will open hearts and minds. This is a great gift and happens to be one of the gifts I sent my mother for Christmas:

Your Turn to Give Parenting Advice

Jen of South Dakota wrote in with this question. Read it and see if you can offer her some parenting advice:

My boyfriend and I moved in together 7 months ago; we both have children from relationships. He and I have been acquaintances for 5 years, so we both knew about our children when we got together.

We love each other very much, we want to get married, the problem is the kids. His youngest is 18 months old, he takes him 2-3 nights a week. I can't stand his kid. There is a lot of resentment between his mother and I, due to her lying to me about her sleeping with my boyfriend, and trying to get him back while we have been together.
