Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?

Hello, Conscious Parent! Welcome to “Dear Katherine,” a Q&A with real-life parents/caregivers. If you’d like to submit a question of your own, email me at email@example.com.
I have two rambunctious boys, aged 7 and 9, who love the outdoors and staying active. They spend hours each day biking or playing basketball. The pandemic hasn’t been easy on them, so I’ve been giving them plenty of time to roam outdoors. Lately, though, it’s been harder and harder to get them to do their schoolwork. They’re way behind on their reading. As an avid reader myself, I want to instill a love for books in my kids. Any tips on how I can get them to read?
Many of the parents I’ve spoken with over the course of the last year find themselves in a similar situation. The pandemic has taken away so much from our children. Naturally we want to let them do the activities they can still enjoy—like riding their bikes or playing in the yard!
Add to myWE:
Of course, these fun activities can’t be a replacement for their schoolwork. But what if you can show them that reading is fun, too?
Here are 5 practical tips for encouraging your kids to pick up a book:
1. Pick a genre they’re interested in. Is your child into animals and insects? Try recommending “Charlotte’s Web” or “Babe.” Do they love a good adventure? “Chronicles of Narnia” might be right up their alley! Capture their attention with topics and genres they already enjoy.
2. Create a cozy reading nook. Whether it’s a small tent in the living room or a pile of pillows in the bedroom, create a space dedicated to reading. Children love having their own space to enjoy. Make one rule, though: in order to use the reading nook, they actually have to read.
