I’m confused and can't figure out what it means in terms of the big picture.
Dear Art, The big picture is a full-frontal nude of your girlfriend painted by her stepfather.
Possibly this conversation itself will so offend them that they’ll cancel the visit. If they keep their plans, your husband could suggest they’d be more comfortable at a motel.
Even if they won’t check into one, you should keep your daughter under constant surveillance and the step-grandfather at arms length. ” You will be letting your daughter know that her instinct was right, and that you are there to protect her.
He wants her to perform for him and to hug him on command.
He likes to find some toy around the house she wants and uses it to lure her close enough that he can grab her.

Dear Prudie, My mother-in-law and my husband's stepfather are coming to visit my husband, my two young kids, and me at Christmas.Or perhaps she was sexually abused as a girl, feels you didn’t protect her, and is now acting out.Of course you’re in shock, and unfortunately there’s not much you can do except try to get through each day with the help of loyal friends and loved ones—and a good divorce lawyer.But though it hardly counts as good news, it may be that your daughter has an undiagnosed mental illness, possibly bipolar disorder.That disease can make people act in bizarre and self-destructive ways.Rocco first tweeted Mr Bannatyne six months ago to ask his advice about setting up his own business.The boy said: ‘He replied and said he couldn't help but told me to keep it up.It didn't feel right, but maybe it’s jealousy on my part.He paints other nude young women, so shouldn’t he just stick with them?During the last visit when he did this, she said nothing but looked at me like, “Save me, Mom! My in-laws’ cultural background dictates that I should treat them like kings, although they treat me like dirt.I worry about a confrontation, but my daughter seemed to feel so violated and I feel terrible I was complicit. Dear Protector, This is turning out to be “sick stepfather” week.
