Respectfully Yours: Enjoy movie

Friday, August 17, 2018 by JACQUELYN YOUST in Focus

Dear Jacquelyn,

My wife and I were at the movies last weekend, and the couple behind us made loud noises unwrapping their candies and talking during the movie. Their voices were not loud whispers, but normal conversation voices and their crinkling of wrappers was irritating. We looked back at them several times but they did not stop. We got up and moved. Should we have told them to be quiet instead of moving?

Dear Reader,

Healthy Geezer: Three questions

Q. Does getting older your mouth dry?

Most dry mouth is related to the medications taken by older adults rather than to the effects of aging. More than 400 medicines can affect the salivary glands. These include drugs for urinary incontinence, allergies, high blood pressure, depression, diarrhea and Parkinson’s disease. Also, some over-the-counter medications often cause dry mouth.

The Family Project: Fifth

Q. The new school year is starting soon and my son will be entering fifth grade. Last year, he started school on a good note, with a lot of self-confidence and good grades. By the end of the year, however, his self-confidence had disappeared, and his grades were down. How can I prepare him for the coming school year?

The panel of experts tried to reassure the mother by saying that the changes she is noticing in her son may be because the transitions between third and fourth grades are difficult, and they get even harder going into fifth grade.
