Abby, triplets art' three children horn together; had they been singles horn a year apart, they would have been entitled to separate "whole value" gifts. Neither the parents nor the children should he shortchanged at this time. The issue of multiples and gift giving is far reaching. When twins attend a birthday party, mothers should send them with two gifts of value that they would like to see reciprocated. Since parents of sin gles often spend in the manner that you suggest, multiples rarely receive a gift of similar value to what was given. In the reverse circumstances, when gifts are given to teachers, mothers of multiples should give the full amount per child because the teacher had the responsibility for two (or three) children. I he per child gift acknowledges that the teacher had two hands to hold and two noses to wipe. Friends and relatives could help by understanding that the circum stances of the birth should not affect the value of the gift. Bach child should he treated as an individual I HANK WK ISS, BK FSI I JENT, NASSAU ('OUN TY MOTH KRS OF TWINS CLUB DK AR MRS. WKISS: You are absolutely right: Every child should receive a “whole” gift, hut did you overlook the fact that the letter was signed "Over Budget”? In the interest of treating each child as an individual, I recommended three individual gilts instead of something all three could share, such as a box of dusting powder, a record allium or a game.

San Antonio DEAR ABBY: As a twin yourself, you should have used better sense in your reply to “Over Budget.” I, too, am a twin, and I have plenty of bad memories of receiving half a gift at birthday parties. My sister and I wert' better off when we received a “normal” gift that we could share, DEAR ABBY: I use the bus to get around town. Often a person will come along and sit beside me. I am by nature a very friendly person, and I enjoy visiting with people. It makes the time pass, and I have met a lot of nice people on buses. I usually begin the conversation like a game. Instead, we got a lot of by asking .«How far are you going?” low cost gilts that were totally use- Abby, you would not believe how ess because mothers would try to many people say, “Its none of your buy us Iwo gifts for the price of one! business!” This hurts my feelings. Sure, I enjoyed the fun and bene- I never thought I was out of line to tits of being a twin and I am not strike up a friendly conversation spoiled—but multiple-birth babies with a stranger on the bus. Why are should not be treated as a half or a third of a person. I know what it feels like, and I’m sure you do. JILL COUSINS, MARIETTA, GA. DEAR ABBY: I am 28 years old and female. I am either confused or stupid, but there is something I need explained to me. I heard that a man determines whether the baby will be a boy or a girl. For example, my dad had the mumps when he was in his teens, and the mumps fell on the left side of his private parts. After Dad got married, Mom had six girls—no boys The doctor told bim that the mumps bad fallen on bis “boy side,” so he could only have girls. Is that true? IN THE DARK DEAK IN: No. Although the male does determine the sex of the child, it has nothing to do with either the left or right side—or the mumps, for that matter. Either your dad misunderstood the doctor, or the doctor was joking. people so rude? OFTEN HURT DEAR HURT: Some people don’t want to talk to strangers on a bus. To ask “How far are you going?” may be construed as an invasion of privacy. If you feel inclined to strike up a conversation with a stranger, open with a comment on the weather. And if it evokes a chilly response, cool it. (Do you hate to write letters because you don’t know what to say?
