A WAY TO HEAL INSIDE I’M AN 18-year-old boy whose mother passed away 11 years ago. Our stepmother really makes life miserable for my sister and me. She’s paranoid, throws words like stones and treats Dad like a possession.She even refuses to buy my sister sanitary pads and this has led my sister to date older men in order to get money for these products.I’ll be doing Grade 12 this year and I’m looking forward to leaving school so I can leave this house.Every time I feel unhappy at home I read my YOU, which helps me clear my head.

WE SHOULDN’T need just one day in the year to tell our partners we love them. That’s always been my feeling about Valentine’s Day even though I know many embrace it and even love the cheesiness of it.My husband and I recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and as I reflect on the decade since we said “I do”, I think of the many ways we’ve shown how crazy we are about each other without doing the Valentine’s Day thing.It’s not about the big gestures, really.

ditching booze

I enjoyed reading Nikki Whitfield’s experience of Dry January (YOU, 7 February). I did Sober Spring last year in September and October and even though I started having a few glasses of wine again afterwards I don’t drink nearly as much as I used to.Like Nikki, I’ve realised I don’t have to have alcohol to have a good time and I feel healthier and thinner – more like I’m the boss of booze, not the other way around. CLEANED UP, CAPE TOWN ■ I grew up as a child watching my father abuse alcohol every weekend. He’d become violent and pick fights with my mother. The idea of fleeing home would cross my mind.My mother was a teetotaller. She was unemployed so perhaps she persevered and stayed in an…
