Living with Children: Eating out with kids http://www.kansas.com/living/family/article90463397.html#storylink=rss The Wall Street Journal recently interviewed Daniel Eddy, a New York City chef, on how to have a mutually-successful experience with a young child in an upscale restaurant ("How to Take Your Kids Out to Eat and Actually Enjoy the Experience," July 14, 2016).

Ex-etiquette: Defining boundaries will help family relations http://www.kansas.com/living/family/article90463517.html#storylink=rss Q: After dating nearly two years, my fiance and I are engaged to be married this month. He has two adult bonuschildren from a prior marriage. He continues to be active in their lives and a great friend to his ex-wife, although she initiated the divorce 5 years ago. My fiance told me that his ex-wife refuses to meet me, and tonight I also learned that his bonusdaughter wants to come to our wedding, even though I have not met her, either. I can't help feeling she is being sent as a "spy." What's good ex-etiquette?

Lori Borgman: Pulling the plug on ambience http://www.kansas.com/living/family/article90463512.html#storylink=rss Since the people we most often dine with on the patio are grandchildren who go to bed at 7 p.m., we are rarely outside after dark and able to enjoy the ambience of flickering candles or string lights.
