Dear Dr. Yael

It is important to realize that addressing a disrespectful boss requires a careful and strategic approach.

Can’t Catch Me

It is frustrating to go out, have a pleasant time and then hear that the other person does not want to see you again. It is even more upsetting, when this happens multiple times with multiple guys.

Dear Dr. Yael

I believe that I went into therapy with naivete, and that the psychological professionals should offer a type of disclaimer, or warning, before starting with a patient.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Woman are looking for a man. This is more than a gender – it’s character. Women want someone they can rely on, emotionally, physically, and yes, monetarily.

How Do You Spell Success? S-o-c-i-a-l S-k-i-l-l-s

Social competence enables us to know what to say, how to make good choices, and how to behave in diverse situations. The extent to which children and adolescents possess good social skills, say experts, can heavily influence their academic performance, social and family relationships, and later, their success on the job.

Dear Dr. Yael

I will share some of my ideas, however, this is no substitute for therapy.

Many people believe that practice and a positive role model will solve all social issues, but what they do not understand is that sometimes people simply lack social intelligence when it comes to finding favor with others.

Dear Dr. Yael

It is difficult to set boundaries, but we all have the challenge of where and how to give our maaser money. It is important that you tell your friend you love his chesed and that he is always trying to help others, but that it is hard for you to always feel you have to give to all the causes he is fighting for.

It’s Not Me, It’s You

I can’t imagine that you expect that everyone who goes on a date is immediately attracted and excited about the person they meet. I would boldly suggest that many people who go on first dates are less than thrilled about their dates’ first impression.

Why Is My Child Having Trouble In School?

Children are not given choices and thus cannot shield themselves from failure; we expect them to be competent, if not expert, in a whole array of school basics.

Dear Dr. Yael

I am printing your column with an answer in the hope that you will send this letter to your brother-in-law, and it will impact the way he is treating you, his sister, and your marriage.


At the very least, take a few minutes every day to sit quietly, to intentionally relax your muscles and to release the stress and knots that have certainly taken root under your skin.

Many students adapt very well to school; they feel good about themselves and their school work. For others, however, school is threatening. Getting through an average school day for some children is fraught with anxiety-producing situations and painful moments.

Dear Dr. Yael

Imagine the tremendous improved relations that can occur if we truly attempt to open our minds to divergent mindsets.

Today, daters are careful when they determine what characteristics matter to them. I hear a lot of words like, smart, outgoing, ambitious, spontaneous, and educated. These are all good words.

Bullfight In The School Yard!

If comparing bullying to bullfighting seems very harsh, ask a child who was bullied.

Dear Dr. Yael

A covert narcissist is sometimes called a vulnerable narcissist and can be emotionally fragile and very sensitive to criticism. Covert narcissists may outwardly show what looks like empathy, but their underlying purpose is to get you to engage with them so they serve their own needs in some way.

The Tyranny Of OCD

The disorder is far more disabling than people realize, and consumes untold hours and outputs of energy.

It is hard to feel happy, or even content, when our brothers and sisters are hostages and others are fighting for us. But, unless we channel these feelings into davening and chesed – good deeds, they are extremely unhelpful feelings.

The only way to fix this is by changing the game. Instead of two parties, we need three.

Although she is well-behaved and articulate in class discussions, on the playground she will frequently barge in on other children's play or conversations.
