Dear CeCe – Is My Therapist Normal?

Dear CeCe, I have been seeing a therapist to work at getting on with my life after splitting up with a longtime girlfriend. I’ve been seeing him for 5 months and don’t feel like I’m getting anywhere.

Dear CeCe – My Ex Isn’t Acting Like a Dad

Dear CeCe, My ex and I split up over a year ago. He paid child support for the first 4 months and hasn’t paid any since then. The last time he was here to drop off the kids after a weekend with him, was 5 months ago. I asked him if everything was okay, and if he was having financial issues.

He tells them he’s very busy but can’t come see them. They are…
