Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, February 25, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Doris dark European-Canadian ways different I would like to know what you and others think of the way Some people from Europe, who have been in Canada for years, treat their children. Seems to me they brainwash them from the time they are born. I don't think these children are born out of love; they must have them as an asset. .As soon as it is possible they are put out to work. I agree that teen agers' should have a part time job when they are old enough to work, but these same young adults have their nose to the grindstone and are old before their time. They are not even taught to think for themselves. These young adults are born here, and should be allowed to live and think the way they want to. At least in our family, our teen agers have the ability to think for themselves and to make their own decisions. Plus they can handle their finances. What do you think? Makes You Think. DEAR MAKES: You have raised a point which has been the despair of many a young Canadian born of European parents. Our way of living, is so different from the way the parents were raised; and it is hard for them to unders- tand our love and let live ways. Cultural differences are hard to live down or to live with; it may take another whole generation to make the change over to the point where everybody is happy 'with our Canadian ways. Yet our European born citizens are some of our best, and can teach us much when it. comes to work, and craftsmanship and discipline. So don't write them off. Work at understanding and befriending them. DEAR DORIS: I'm writing you for ad- vice for a friend. She has a boy friend, but now she's met another guy whom she likes as well. Her boy friend is very jealous and displays it; the other guy likes her and displays it. She has no idea what to do. It's the old story of "I love them She usually discusses these problems with me, but even I am at a loss. Abbey. DEAR ABBEY: Your friend obviously isn't ready to settle down to one boy friend yet. Tell her to explain that to both boy friends. She needs more time to play the field. Then when she meets the right man, she'll recognize him at once. There'll be no question of "which youngest son seems 'to feel the neglect of his father more than the others. Many times he'd stand at the window staring out, even after dark, and the tears would well up in his eyes and he'd say, "When is my Daddy coming The result is that at 21 he leans on me and I tend to pamper him. He owes money for the-ear and I have helped him with other debts. We used to have a great time, all of us, even when my husband was out. Often we would pull'the blinds, shut the door, put on the phonograph and we would dance all around any way we felt like. The children loved it. Yet their father asked me how J could ever stand all those kids! What am I to do with this youngest one, who clings to me? Mother. DEAR MOTHER: Every mother must eventually push all her children out. of the nest. But there is still a loving family feeling in fact, letting the young adult go often brings a closer relationship in the long run. Now remember no more loans, no more deci- sion making, for him. And ask his opinion, talk with him about what life holds in store for a self respecting intelligent man like him, and encourage him to take hold of things himself. DEAR DORIS: Some time ago I noticed a request for the poem "September" We were required to memorize it .in either grade three or four many years ago in a country school. As a teacher, I regret very much that pupils are seldom required to merhorize poems any more. They are missing a great deal to store for pleasure in later life. Sarah. DEAR SARAH: I couldn't agree more. Thank you for "September" ithas been coming in from all direc- tions, and with more than one comment very much like yours. Thank you, all of you. DEAR DORIS: I'm like anybody else; I have crushes on guys and dreams. At school I like everybody, I get teased by the boys but I take it. But at dances it's different. I feel inferior. I listen to my friends tell me about dates and it hurts when I know I am missing the fun. I'm sick of living and sick of disap- pointment. My frequent depressions are hurting more and more. Seven- teen and Depressed." DEAR SEVENTEEN: Believe it or not, there are things more important in life than being the life of the party. Wallflowers have a thin time of it, but remember, there only needs to be one fellow who discovers your sterling worth, and you are away to the races! Check your assets. Are you careful with grooming and presenting that band- box fresh look? As for assets, ifyoucould.develop one skill, like playing a guitar, learning to dance really well, or putting on a one-girl skit (I can describe a couple for this will draw welcome attention to you. Make some sort of effort all on your own and see what happens. DEAR DORIS: Please send me For That Spare Tire. I am 40.1 had a complete went on hormones and have put on 20 pounds. The doctor says the drugs have nothing to do with it. The more I try on clothes that don't fit, the more depressed I get. Not a Big Eater. DEAR NOT: I'm betting that most of the women who read this across Canada will know what you're talking about, when it comes to an un- wanted spare tire as you move into middle age. Fact is, after the age of 25 we burn five to seven per cent fewer calories with each passing decade. So at your age you need 10 to 15 per cent less food than you did 10 years ago. Usually the way to cut down is to hide the sweets, pastries, fried foods. It means a change in eating habits, but your body doesn't need them and your good looks don't either. Readers constantly report success with my Simple Reducing Diet to be had for 25 cents and a stamped, self addressed envelope. Meanwhile I am sending you "For That Spare Tire'.' which will help you break down the fat cells where they are least wanted on the tummy! DEAR DORIS: I have not found an exer- cise so far that will do away with the bulges on upper thighs and lower hips. I have always had a slim waistline, but am as wide as a barn door. My doctor tells me the only way J can lose these bulges is by losing weight. I've done this and become skinny in face, chest and waist. Losing this weight made me look 10 years older. I can't do the hip ex- ercises any more as I have a bad hip. I would like to try figure shaping by weight. Bulgy. DEAR BULGY: Perhaps your actual bony structure is wide at the hipline and you are try- ing to reduce some fat that is not actually there. Had you heard that Cleopatra .and a good many other historical beauties had curvacious and wide hiplines? The small waistline helps to add to the curve of beauty. The thing to do is watch the styles and buy with an eye to drawing attention to it. I'm sending you the weight lifting exer- cises (for the 25 cents and stamped enveloped you but would cau- tion you to take them to your doctor before you use them considering that bad hip. You do have to die't to make any real dint in poun- dage, but too rigid and too rapid dieting often results in muscles drawn down, cheeks no longer round and firm. Confidential to Allergies: The arrange- ment simply wouldn't work. Aside from the fact that you are allergic to your uncle's dog, your un- cle's terrific handicap has made him frustrated. Frustration builds up an anger which he eventually takes out on. anyone who serves him. Apparently you have been willing to take a lot and still kept your sweetness of temper. However, the worm will turn, and the relative you are being kind to now will consider that you have been unfair when you blow your top and walk out on the whole situation. Don't let that' happen. Settle for occasional visits and tell him he has to get someone for regular help. Address all questions to Doris Clark, 66 Rosedene Ave.. Hamilton, Ont., L9A 1E9.
