Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: All adoptive parents must decide whether or no[ lo leU their adopted children about Lbeir ori- gin. You have repeatedly urged the parents to state the truth early and not risk letting the child learn it from an outsider. I agree wholeheartedly. Still another problem arises ihe child's curiosity about his natural parents. Many adopted chikvren start asking if they can see their "real" mom and dad. They build up rom- antic images and sometimes become obressed with the idea that they must fir.d these "wonderful1' people. This can be avoided by presenting an objective picture of the parents when the child is young. Do not use the words "real parents'' say, instead, "the man and woman who gave birth to you.'' "Real parents" suggests another warm and loving mommy and daddy exist somewhere, and an emotional attachment begins If any adopthe parent doubts this, let them ask any five- year-old why Mr. X is Johnny's daddy and he will list for you all the physical acts Uiis man performs for the boy. To a child, his father and mother are the people he can depend on to give him day-to day love and cere. Social Worker DEAR ViTL: Your theory sounds sensible and may accur- ately be termed "preventive medicine." Thanks for writing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I wrote to you several weeks ago about a problem I was having with a girl. I had asked her to marry although she only 18. (I am 22.) She was the most mature and sensible girl of IS I'd ever met. She told me she cared for me but she was not ready Lo settle down. I was deeply hurt and asked you what to do. Your advice was to cool it and stop pressuring her. Then you suggested that I take out other girls and encourage her to date other fellows. It was nard for me lo take that advice but I did. I am writing to thank you. Arm. Since I've taken the heat ofi she has become much more responsive and I feel a sense of con- fidence I never had before. I realize now that a guy can be too too adoring, and maybe even make a pest of him seli. I still think about marrying her eventually, but I realize now it is someLhias that will have to evolve over a period of time. I ain wri'ine to thank you for your advice. It helped tTemence'.isly. I feel sorry for people who ask your opinion and then ignore it. Tampa Friend DEAR FRIEND: Your letter gives me an opportunity to say once again that true love doesn't konk you on the bead iiie a chu.1.-: of loose plaster. It must develop and grow, one day at a time. In a genuine love relationship, each allows the other freedom and breathing space. There are no cemands and no ultimatums. No one feels threatened or suffocated. Your new approach is much more mature and I'm sure the girl views you iri a vastly different light. Congratulations on grow- ing up. DEAR LANDERS: I was sorry to hear you say on your NBC radio show that you've changed your views on di- vorce. Granted, divorce no longer bears the stigma it once did. but such logic could be extended to other wrongs and brutalities SD thai eveu murder or child abuse could become so commonplace as to earn" very little social stigma. "What (.'rod has joined together tet not man put asunder1' a njL-ij'i precept to which we are still answerable as "Thou shalt noi til" or "Thou shall not steal'." I have often applauded your common sense and unyielding observations on marriage and family life and I regret your sivitch c.n orce. Perhaps you'll switch back. Your first book. "Sine" You .Ask -Me.'' is recommended reading to my newlyweds. Thanks for your time, .Arm. Rev. J. Barclay Brown. Mount Hope Lutheran Church. Casper, Wy. DEAR REVEREND BROTYN; Thank you for voar gwd letter. I am sorry you and I are having a serious disagree- ment in principle, but the world is changing and those who refuse to reassess rie issues will be sadly out of rune with the tunes. I no longer believe that marriage means forever no matter how lousy it for "the sake of the chili-en." I see too r.iany people who had a rotten first marriage and are truly happy with a second husband or wife. Our basic dis- agreement, (yours and mine! lies in the interpretation Goc has joined together." If God made the selectors, i; would be simple. But, unfortunately, the selections are made by humans. Ana humans make mistakes. My thanks for writing and my best wishes. .Ann Landers Saturday, January 17, 1973 THI HBULD _ No simple remedy for plant problem MS. AND MRS.
