    Bringing a new woman around

    How do you know when it is time to introduce a new woman to your kids? I'm not there yet, but I want to have some thoughts nailed down so that my emotions don't push me to bring her in too soon. Also, how would you introduce them?

    What career field would you go into?

    If you had to do it over, what would you do? I have found myself at something of a career crossroads, and I am considering making a drastic change. Looking for input on things I might not have thought of myself, so I'm purposely not giving a lot of background. Thanks for any ideas you have.

    How old to stay home alone?

    My son is 9, but very mature. I am wondering when he will be ready to start staying home alone for short times (like if I run to the store or something). How do you decide? If I left it up to my ex, he would be about 20!

    How was your Christmas?

    It was hard for me. This was my first year as a single dad, and I was glad that I got to spend some time with the kids, but nothing at all was the same. I spent a lot of time alone, and it was really just depressing.

    What age to get them a cell phone?

    My ex-wife and I are going back and forth about this. What age do you think that it is appropriate to get them a cell phone. I really, really do not want to start with a smartphone. I get the idea that she thinks we should, though.

    Do you cook for yourself?

    When I don't have the kids, I struggle with wanting to cook anything. I don't really want to continue the take-out nights, but it just seems like a lot of work to get stuff out and get the kitchen dirty, when it is just me. Do you bother, or do you live off of frozen meals, or what?

    I have been finding some things that I enjoy watching on Netflix. What are your "must see" series to watch? I have a lot more TV time now, and am enjoying having the remote all to myself.

    I recently moved from Florida to an area that actually gets cold. I've been having a problem with my van doors freezing shut until I warm it up enough that they thaw. Is there any way to prevent this?

    First Christmas after divorce

    I'm still kind of reeling from the whole thing. Do you guys have any advice for how to just get through these next couple of months? I want to be fair with visitation, gifts, etc. but it just seems overwhelming to think about all of it.

    How do I teach them to ride a bike with my bad back?

    I can't bend down to help stabilize them like they really need me to. I feel like a jerk because my kids are getting kind of old and still don't know how to ride. There isn't really anyone else who can do it. Do you have any advice?
