Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAE ANN LANDERS: A word to that mother who was heartsick because she sent her fine, young son off to the Ivy League and he returned a hippy radical. She blamed the school, his far-out friends and the new move- ment. Perhaps if that mother hadn't been so hell-bent on her son's enrolment there the boy might have gone to a smaller but less prestigious school and not felt compelled to take a point of view diametrically opposed to that of ws par- ents. (They call this Too many parents pressure their children into situations that make them hostile and resentful. When the kids react they are "heartsick." When are parents going to realize not all kids belong at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth and Brown? Seattle D. W. H. DEAR SEATTLE: Amen, Brother. And when are par- ents going to realize not all kids belong in college? To some it merely means a four-year postponement of facing the real expenses paid. Some high school students would be infinitely better off if they enrolled in a trade school and got a part-time job. They just are not suited to campus life as we now know it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Eighteen years ago my brother's wife walked out on him and left him with three little boys under two years' of age. (You read right.) When the oldest, boy was 12, my brother married Bea. He had a pile of bills and the boys were spoiled rotten and hard to handle. Bea should get a medal for the way she pulled that family together. Three weeks ago the boys' mother showed up. For 18 years she never sent a card or picked up a phone to see how they were. They wouldn't have known her if they pass- ed1 her on the street. She had a friend phone my brother to say she was in town and ask if she could see "her boys." He said yes. Bea almost had a heart attack in the living room. The boys looked at their mother as if she were a new neighbor who had dropped in to borrow a cup of sugar. The first thing she said was, "I'm sorry I left you, Bill, but you drank so much I couldn't take it." (You'd have thought she left last week.) He answered "You're right. I was pretty awful." This woman has been hanging around for three weeks and Bea is going out of her mind. My brother, the idiot, is very friendly to his ex-wife and she is awfully nice to the boys so they like her, too. Isn't this terrible? What can we do about Sister DEAR SISTER: Of course it's terrible, but there's noth- ing anybody can do about it. You can only hope Bill wakes up and sees that his loyalty should lie with the woman who helped put his life together. A mother who can dis- appear for eighteen years doesn't deserve a heroine's wel- come. CONFIDENTIAL TO MARRIED TO MR. GO-GO-GO: Try a little Thoreau on him. Tell Mr. Go-Go-Go that a man is rich in relation to the number of things he can afford to let alone. Drinking may be "in" to the kids you run It can put you "out" for keeps. You can cool it and stay popular. Read "Booze And Teen-Agers Only." Send 35 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped enve- lope with your request.

Child Won't Talk With Silent Mom TORONTO (CP) Mothers must talk frequently to their children to prevent them from laving language difficulty, says Dr. Alex Bannatyne, director of the Bannatyne Learning Centre, Miami, Fla. The psychologist told the Ca- nadian Association for Children with Learning Disabilities Thursday that many children lave language ,en and they have disiri- :erested, depressed or angry mothers. He told of one woman who was depressed because her old- est son was killed and then her 'aiiher died. She rarely spoke to ler other son. By the age of nine the boy could not read and lardiy spoke. He said children often ten away from words when they lave angry mothers who use abusive language. It was essen- ial that a child be spoken to frequently up to the age cf four. After the age of six it was more difficult to teach a child anguage skills although some can be salvaged at kindergarten ;ven though they come from si- ent or abusive homes. Bui for many such children earning English is like learning a new language. Teachers who tv-ere fluent forgot they them- elves had trouble in learning new words, just as the children do. Dr. Bannatyne criticized the delay in teaching a second lan- guage until a child reaches high chool. Children learned lan- guage through their eats. He told of the children of a riend of his who are truly tri- ingual and switch from lan- guage to language without mix- ing them up. One parent is Eng- lish, (lie other is German and the family lives in the French- speaking section of Switzerland. "They had no formal train- he said. "It was just a case of people talking to them." Another speaker, Dr. Edward Frierson of the Nashville Learn- ing Centre, Nashville, Tenn., said there were sometimes sub- K i impairments in school chil- dren of which teachers should be aware. Teachers knew something was wrong but preferred to think the children could do better if they worked hard. They did not real- ize there were sometimes inher- ent differences in the nervous system that can interfere with learning. LA. TO F.O.E. BINGO Monday, Aug. 10 JACKPOT NOS.
