Ex-etiquette: Ex sends late-night, non-emergency texts

Q: My boyfriend's ex texts him in the middle of the night. It's not romantic; it's usually something like, "Don't forget Jason's soccer game is tomorrow," but it drives me crazy. He doesn't see anything wrong with it and will not say anything to her. What's good ex-etiquette?

Living with Children: Parent portals shift homework responsibilities

Q: Our son attends first grade at the local public school. At the beginning of the school year, all the parents were basically told that we are expected to go to the school's parent website every day to keep up with our kids' homework assignments. In addition, the "Parent Portal," as it's called, also lets us know what we are expected to help with at home. In effect, we are being made responsible for what, in our estimation, is a teacher's responsibility. We are expected to know the material, monitor homework, and see to it that every assignment is not only done, but done properly. I've talked to several other parents who are not inclined to cooperate, but we all feel like we're caught between a rock and a hard place. Advice?
