Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, February 19, 1974 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Doris Clark University education puzzles parent Dear Doris: Is there something wrong for parents to feel a responsibility for their children's university education even after they are married? Our son married while he was still at college, against his better judgment, because his fiancee said it was now or never. She was working at that time and felt she could provide both support for a home and fees for college. When he asked us, we said that if he loved her he should not let financial difficulties stand in the way, and assured him we would help if he needed us to. Now they do need it, because she has a baby and cannot work. They lived on a government loan for a year but she resents this. We helped some too, but he feels so humiliated and down on himself, although he works every summer and pays as much as he can. Just the same, his wife resents us giving him anything. She carries on about it. They spend both Christmas and New Year's at her home. Her parents helped them buy baby clothes and with other financing and this it seems is all right. It's just the fact that they want to be independent of us. Now when they come around John is even afraid to give me an occasional hug and kiss. Hurt and Puzzled.

Phone Ample Free Parking at Rear of Building daughter-in-law can accept each other. Perhaps, also, she suffers from the over protection of her own parents. Thirdly, she has only a vague idea of how they might make ends meet if you didn't help out. Other things being equal, it would be good sense for this young couple to accept a business like interest free loan from you as long as it was drawn up on paper and your son had no (foolish) notions that he was accepting charity. Tolerance, a sense of humor on your part, and withdrawal for the moment from giving any help at this is what needs to happen. With regard to the two Big Days I'd suggest a written and somewhat formal invitation to them for a certain set date, at the same time expressing your understanding that your daughter-in-law will naturally want to spend alternate Big Days at the home she grew up in until her own family helps her to see the new home she is making as the centre of all such celebrations. Then try to really understand, and bide your time. DEAR DORIS: Could you give me infor- mation about a good diet for an old woman of my age 80 years? Three Score and Twenty. DEAR FOUR SCORE: There are a couple of im- portant things about diet for the older person: 1. Don't eat as much as you used to. If we insist on loading the calories, they pile on fat and we find that it is the thinner match-stick type of oldster who outlives his stouter brothers. Cut your servings in half and stay away from those treacherous sweets almost entirely. 2. Make sure of plenty of protein to be found in eggs, milk, cheese, fish, AQ-EXPO GIGANTIC EQUIPMENT AUCTION SALE!

DEAR DORIS: I would like to know how I could have a better relationship with my new daughter-in-law. We never know what to say to each other. It is dif- ficult to converse with her as. she is a very quiet per- son. If I ask her something she gives a quick answer and that's it. I find myself getting quite tense when I am with her. She does not smoke nor drink. She doesn't even eat; she's afraid she'll gain weight and she's only 100 pounds. She doesn't like be- ing with people. When we see them at dances she's usually grumpy and look- ing bored. Mother-Out-Law.. DEAR M.O.L. I know You struggle with the in-put and get no outcome. And it is frustrating. Look, it isn't your fault she takes a dim view of life. But your son chose her for a wife so he must have discovered the pearl in his oyster! Believe in her if you can. Give her love where you can. Keep poised when she leaves baffling silence. After all, she is a new daughter-in-law, and somehow her past has not taught her confidence in people.
