Dear Prudence: Recently, my partner’s lifelong best friend and his wife were killed in a car accident, leaving us with custody of both of their children. They are two wonderful girls ages 4 and 2 and we love them dearly and are happy to have them. Both of them are comfortable with us since we spent a great deal of time together before their parents passed away, but we did not have any children of our own and we are taking a crash course in parenting.

In general, I urge the current parents to avoid forever asking, "What would so-and-so have done," unless given very clear indications to the contrary. Good luck!
