Ex-etiquette: Do what you must to create a harmonious holiday season

Q: My kids' dad and I broke up about four months ago. This is our first big holiday and in doing research on the subject, I've read some sources that say you should spend the holidays with your child's other parent and other sources that say you should not. Once and for all, what's right? I'm tired of making mistakes. What's good ex-etiquette?

Living with Children: Give a child enough rope –

Q: Our 8-year-old has suddenly developed a very sassy mouth. She picked this up from a new neighborhood friend who speaks to her mother in a very disrespectful tone, like she's the girl's servant. There are no other girls this age in the neighborhood, so I hesitate to put a stop to the relationship but at the same time I want to nip this new skill in the bud before it becomes habit. Do you have any suggestions?

Ask Mr. Dad: Sexual harassment: It's everyone's problem

Dear Mr. Dad: Over the past month, I don't think there's been a day without a news story of some famous person being accused of sexual assault or harassment. I'm disgusted by these men's behavior, but I'm concerned that one group of victims is being left out: men who are assaulted or harassed by women. At my last job, my female boss frequently made suggestive comments to me, touched my butt, and on several occasions told me that if I slept with her, it would be good for my career. I reported her to HR, but was told that men are the only ones who can sexually harass and that I should just enjoy it. I dropped my complaint and ended up quitting. I can't believe I'm the only guy out there who's been through this. Am I?

Game review: 'Just Dance 2018,' familiar but fun dance routine has a few new steps

Parents need to know that "Just Dance 2018" is the latest release in Ubisoft's popular rhythm and music series. The version for newer consoles includes some deeper content, and the Switch version in particular sports a few exclusive modes and features that take advantage of the dual Joy-Con controllers. While the game encourages players to get active with full body movement, players can skirt by using only minor motions in the hands and arms. Parents should also be aware that, despite having a decent amount of content packed in, "Just Dance 2018" pushes hard for players to purchase additional downloadable content, with a specific focus on a monthly subscription service for the game.

The 10 most violent video games of 2017 (and kid-friendly alternatives)

It's a dark night. You've just escaped from a sprawling mansion deep in the Louisiana bayou. You're terrified. You've been shot at, bludgeoned, and stabbed as you try to escape this life-or-death situation. What's worse, it looks like you're on your own, because a sheriff's deputy was killed in front of your eyes. You take a break in an upstairs bathroom to catch your breath, but something doesn't feel right. You should go, but as you get to the door, it swings open, and you're face to face with the man you killed minutes before. How is he still alive, and worse, how are you ever going to escape if you have to kill him again and again?
