New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 26, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeltung g Friday December g 3A Sorrowful inlaws are silent victims of divorce DEAR ABBY I just hung up after calling our former soninlaw to wish him happiness and good luck on his wedding day tomorrow Oh how it hurts We love him and have loved him since he came into our family almost 30 years ago Our daughter has never wanted us to hate him She doesnt They had a friendly divorce sometimes the hardest kind to so we were not betraying her by calling him Abby I just wanted to write to you to put in a good word for loving in laws I know that children are the victims of divorce and that they must leam to accept the decisions of their parents But on the other hand we as parents must accept the decisions of our children and silently mourn the loss of someone we love and years of family memories We too are victims Thank you for listening TOO SLOWLY IN ILLINOIS DEAR HEALING You appear to be a caring and sensitive woman Perhaps it will speed your healing to keep uppermost in mind that neither your daughter nor your former soninlaw seems to regret the decision to go their separate ways I am reminded of the famous line from Reinhold Niebuhrs The Serenity God give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed courage to change the things which should be changed and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the DEAR ABBY I give private music lessons in my home Most of my students are children who come with their parents and other siblings Increasingly I am finding these peoples manners to be appalling The children are allowed to explore every part of my home while their parents sit and do nothing I end up having to interrupt the lessons while I find usually in some private part of my home Ive even had parents disappear into my kitchen and I can hear them in my cupboards and refrigerator Even though I dont have the most expensive ftirniture I do not want shoes on my couch or operfdrinks on my table Not even my yard flowers wind chimes or birdbath is safe from these invaders Having a private lesson music art or whatever should be considered a privilege and an honor It is certainly preferable to a noisy music store or art studio Maybe if a few people read this they will wake up and realize that their actions do matter MUSIC TEACHER WASHINGTON STATE DEAR MUSIC TEACHER When you are conducting lessons your home is your office It is up to you to set boundaries The parts of your home you wish to keep private should be closed off Post signs reminding visitors to refrain from touching not entering etc Provide a comfortable seating area with reading material toys for the siblings stick to your guns DEAR ABBY My mother and father divorced about 10 years ago after almost 30 years of marriage The divorce was nasty and painful for everyone involved There are still unresolved issues and bad feelings My mother and my fathers mother Were very close until the divorce After that my mother no longer felt she belonged in the family They have sent each other occasional birthday cards and have seen each Eagles Hall Christmas fades quickly as Americans
