Carolyn Hax: 25 columns for 25 years (and one to grow on)

A mother-in-law writes in, frustrated that her son and daughter-in-law, who she calls “selfish at times” and “self-centered,” don’t want to attend family gatherings. A reader recommended this column: “I’m a teacher and I use this column in a lesson about interpretation, diction, narrative structure and use of details. I have my students read the letter, answer questions, read Carolyn’s reply, and then we see how many change their minds about the situation.”
