M Reader alyssalove101 wrote: "My parents are divorced, and I spend school years with my mom and summers with my dad. Every two weekends in the summer, I'm with my mom, and I wake up in the middle of the night tearing up, because I miss her so much. I love being with my dad more than I can even explain, so I don't tell him, and the guilt is eating my insides out. Please help me!"

And M Girl's answer is: "Dealing with divorced parents is difficult. You want to be with both of your parents, but you can only be with one at a time. First, do not feel guilty. Your emotions are normal. The best way to deal with missing your mom is to see her more often during the summer. Talk to your mom or a family worker about it. Tell her that you love spending time with your dad, but you would also like to see your mom more often in the summer, so that you do not miss her as much. If you are honest with your parents, you should be able to work out a schedule that works for everyone. Remember that your parents want to spend time with you and also want what is best for you! Good luck!"
