Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 17, 1974 THE L.ETHBRIDGE HERALD 31 Doris Clark Couple troubled by parent's mistrust DEAR DORIS: I feel the same way as the daughter 21 whose mother worried about her. I plan on taking my holidays with my boy friend too. We love each other very much. I think that our parents don't realize all the facts that are the most impor- tant. They say, "What will all the other people think and It is not what other people say! It is what really takes place which is the most important. If they would only take a look at their own children and what they are doing with their lives maybe they would understand that all children aren't the same. Maybe after doing this they wouldn't stick their nose into other people's business that has nothing to do with them at all. The innocent people are the ones that get their reputation ruined because someone gets the wrong conclusion and starts a big thing out of nothing of truth. I myself plan on go- ing to another city with my boy friend to visit my future relatives and for them also to meet me. Why are our parents so untrusting about their children' Have they done such things in their time that they are trying to have their children avoid? Holidays DEAR HOLIDAYS: You'll just have to live a little longer before you'll be convinced of the answers. Twenty years from now or perhaps 25 you'll be having the same kind of worry about your own young people and their reputations. Or I'm a monkey's aunt! In our social world, "what people think" is im- portant to our status and our happiness. And of course parents who are concerned about their young adults are certainly not "sticking their noses into other people's business that has nothing to do with them at all." If you do travel alone with your boy friend, that's your decision. But don't be surprised if some people assume you two are sleep- ing together. DEAR DORIS: I say, May God help the person who signed Over Your Head. Any persons who think they are too bright to believe in God, He wouldn't want them anyway because He couldn't tell them anything. I myself think it is most wonderful to be led each day by the Lord and to know that in time of need there is a Friend when others fail Doris, just ask God to forgive the persons who say anything mean to you; show them that you are stronger than they are. And God bless you abun- dantly. A Child of Our Living God. DEAR CHILD: Thank you for sticking your neck out too. DEAR DORIS: Seven years ago I lost two wonderful sons in a tragic accident. Some weeks after the funeral, I found a little poem entitled It had no author's name, but the words seemed to have been written for us and others who suffered similar griefs. I enclose a copy of the poem. A Mother. DEAR MOTHER: Thanks for sending us the poem that helped you in time of trouble. I'll be glad to pass it along to any other reader who would like a copy (Enclose 25 cents and a stamped, self addressed envelope.) DEAR DORIS. I'll be of age next year and I plan to be married, but it is without my parents' permission. What I'm wondering about is the wedding itself. My fiance and I are willing to give ourselves a wedding in a church, but I am wonder- ing who I could have to give me away. I have no uncles that are close and no relatives. On My Own. DEAR ON MY OWN: There is nothing to pre- vent you from going down the aisle alone, except the loneliness of it. Whether someone gives you away or not makes no legal difference to the wedding ceremony. But breaking with your family is a sad state of af- fairs You need your own to care about you. The children you will have are going to want grandparents 'and you are going to want them to have them. If they do not know your man, help them to. Bring him in when he brings you home at night. Serve coffee to them all In a year you can show the mature kind of firm but not defiant behavior which will remind your parents of your love for them. I just can't see them mis- sing out on their daughter's wedding, and if your father still holds out about staying out of the ceremony, couldn't one of those not close uncles become an interested friend in the next few months? DEAR DORIS A while ago you had a letter from a reader here from Europe. The writer, a Mrs. Van, said she was sorry her children had so little to do with older people. She remembered her own grandmother was great fun, a woman who lived to be 94, with whom she had the privilege of spending most of her school vacations. She wondered whether there might be, somewhere, an elderly cou- ple who would take on some ready-made grandchildren. Her children were missing something important not to be able to visit with someone older, who has lived through a lot; and to listen to tales of times long gone. She said "It gives you a continuity in life the meaning and under- standing so many young people are searching for to- day and often not finding." I love contacts with teen- agers and people who are much younger than myself in those rare times when I do manage a chat with one of them. If Mrs. Van still wants to adopt a widow-grandmother I am a willing subject for the ex- periment. Would-Be Granny. I do not have Mrs. Van's address, but if she writes in, I'll waste no time in putting you in touch. Are there any other "would-be Are there any other young families wanting contact with lovable oldsters? Let's see if we can't make some matches!
