the United Nations bleeding us dry Actually the is heavily in arrears to the right now with many opponents in Congress saying we should not make any payments at all to the world body The has consistently paid far more than any other country for United Nations operations As host country to the world body weve been responsible for keeping the organization afloat for years Now when weve fallen behind in our payments to the body officials and representatives from member nations especially the Europeans are screaming for our heads because of our delin quency Let them scream Nations like Germany France the and Japan have paid pal try sums of money to maintain operations when compared to the United States Its high time those nations that can afford to pay their fair share do so Our coffers are no longer a bottomless pit Ambassador Madeleine Albright has let officials know that she will be working this year to help reduce the bureaucracy that has balooned over the 50 years of existence She will propose in the coming year the consolidaton of some departments the reduction of others and the elimination of still more i frightening prospects for world bureaucrats xOther costs that come from unlimited and unwarranted travel by IJN officials can also be brought down to save funds Albright has said Whats really hurting the group financially right now are the numerous peacekeeping efforts the is engaged in around the gjpbe especially in the former Yugoslavia jf this country continues to play an active role in the United Rations and its endeavors our representatives

needs in raising kids This recent series about helping children of divorce adjust to their new life is to me important enough to write a summary article The four columns preceding this one addressed four basic needs each of which is an important part of the mixture in helping children restabilize All of these articles have been written with the assumption that there is no abuse toward the children It is also assumed that the parents have no alcohol or other drug abuse which could interfere in the chil drens safety driving while under the influ ence of a or in the parents ability to provide a loving warm and attentive environment for the children Children need and want to love and be loved by both parents They need to feel free to do so without fear of upsetting one parent by loving the other par ent Loyalty binds are destructive to kids Children want to feel free to spend time with each parent and be able to enjoy that time without fear of the oth er parents being jealous Children should be free to call either parent when they want limited by phone bills although parents need to watch that they are not being played against each other Kids frequently do this by calling one parent when they are angry with the other When one parent becomes involved in another romantic relationship it is helpful to the children if the other parent encourages the children to accept and even like the new person This may be hard for the parent to do but it is extremely helpful for the chil dren Children need parents to set tle their differences and find a way to be peaceful and treat each other respectfully This does not have to be a happy active friendship but at least a relationship in which there is no yelling criticizing or making hateful comments about the oth er parent Parents need to com municate their differences with out going through the children or using them as the messen gers or as bargaining tools When respectful communica tion is reestablished the major healing can begin Children benefit from rea sonable rules consistency and routine As much as possible coordinate schedules and routines house hold rules and expectations and positive and negative consequences Support the other parent in expecting children to conform to reasonable rules at both homes For example if the rule is homework is to be done before TV support this in both homes If a child is grounded from the telephone because of misuse of the phone at one home dont allow use of the phone at the other home This helps prevent children pitting Nancy Logan one parent against the other or calling one parent when they are mad at the other one Finally children are expensive in time and in money Child support is a reasonable and essential responsibility even if the child is conceived out of wedlock or the parent is only a Poverty or poor standard of living is not good for kids Furthermore kids do not raise themselves well Children need regular and ample attention and need to have a parent with enough energy to enjoy playing with or enjoying them If a custodial parent has to work more than one fulltime job he or she will have too little time or energy to spend with kids All children but especially children of divorced parents need to feel free to love and be loved by both parents to be treated respectfully and around people who treat each other respectfully to have a steady routine and predictable rules and expectations upheld by both parents to be financially supported by both parents regular and reasonable child and to have enough time and positive attention freely given to them In my opinion these are the birthrights of children and the essential responsibilities of people choosing to have children Disclaimer All materials in this column are

action The responses included We have traveled twice through Alaska It would be a sacrilege to let this happen The wilderness is already overrun with cars and people Leave the animals their habitat If we have less oil to rely on maybe cleaner alternative fuels would get a boost A scientific study says carbon dioxide byproduct of fossil fuels is a source of global warming Its a fact When will the decision makers face reality Its time we seek alternative fuel sources We must draw the line on the con tinuous destruction of our wildlife refuges We dont need any more oil spills in the Arctic area We are slowly destroying our world it has to stop Remember the Exxon Valdez oil spill The world is awash in surplus oil Most of the Arctic oil goes to Japan and consumers would not benefit from it The protected areas owned and con trolled by the government are already sufficient The future of development depends on our independence of oil and gas a situation which presently is not so and is soaring
