Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta
16 - THE 1ETHBRIDGE HERALD - Monday, January 11, 1971 Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I wrote to you last month saying I thought my 16-year-old daughter was getting too friendly with a girl I was sure was a lesbian. You said unless 1 had more than a hunch to forget it because it is not unnatural for girls to be chummy at this age. I have now in my possession letters from the other girl to my daughter which leave no room for doubt. Should I confront my daughter with the evidence? Should I have a talk with the girl's parents? Would therapy help my daughter? She seems happy and perfectly normal in every way. To look at her you'd never suspect a thing. Please advise at once.-Texas Tenterhooks. DEAR T. T.: Do not contact the girl's parents. It would serve no useful purpose and it might create serious trouble between you and your daughter. You should, however, let her know you are aware of the relationship and that you are willing to provide her with professional help if she wants it. Show no anger or disgust and don't try to break up her friendship with the girl. It won't work. Moreover, it might build a wall which later might prove insurmountable. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I were married three months ago. We both graduated from college and are better off financially than most newlyweds. My husband and I wanted a family but not immediately. Well, it seems I became pregnant the month after the wedding. After the initial shock wore off we decided it was great and we are thrilled. My parents are having a fit. My father says it is disgusting and my mother says she is ashamed to tell her friends because they will think I was pregnant when I got maitried. She has asked me not to tell anybody one minute earlier than I have to. In addition to this, my sister is a nut on the population explosion and pollution. She says people like us are mining HER world. To listen to my family you'd think we have done a terrible thing. Have we? Please tell us how to think about this?-Not Guilty As Charged DEAR NOT GUILTY: A baby is on the way. Rejoice. Your parents should be ashamed of themselves. Your sister should keep her mouth shut. This isn't your tenth child, it's your first. Even Paul Ehrlich has one. * * � If you have trouble getting along with your parents . . . if you can't get them to let you live your own life, send fo Ann Lander's booklet, "Bugged By Parents?
