Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 1973 THE LCTHMIOGE HERALD DorL Clark Successful living e MORE 4-H CLUB NEWS McNALLY By nolf JanhseR The McNaJly 4-H Beef Club meeting held Fob, 7 in the McNally School with 10 mem- bers and three leaders present. Roll call was the daily weight gain of member's calves. A bottle drive will be held in tlw near future to help raise money. Tlirce-minule speeches wert given by all present. DEAR DORIS: Our marriage is dead. My husband takes no interest in liis children; even stops lliem from an hour or Iwo with their friends at the weekend just to show lie is the boss. And there arc many other things. There is no happiness in our he me. My girl, 13, no longer re- spects her fatbar. Says slie re- members how her dad would pull her ears, slap her face and pull her hair when she was a liUle girl, because she didn't do everything right away when the "boss" Eold her to. My children are just biding their time for when they can leave home legally. But if I leave him he can have me up for desertion. If I put liirn out of the bedroom he can use that as an excuse to leave me. Want To Feel Human Again. DEAR WANT: A father who wilt slap arouml n mere tot is showing the signs of a child balterer. He was taking out bis frustrations on her frustrations we know nothing about. And tliis may still be (he case. If you find life with him in- tolerable for all of you, a law- yer would help you claim sup- port in a domicile apart from him. Or if you provoke him into leaving, you can claim sup- port where you are. There are 1 aws to pro tect families from mental and physical abuse. It may well be that you can find serenity for yourself and tlie children in a home apart. There is a closeness and mutual Kense of helpfulness w h i c h grows up in many a one-parent household; and that is all to the good. TaJk it over with the social worker who does marital coun- selling. gruff to her she goes and gets under her bed. The older boy is p.k. I asked the social worker if it would help if I look the ehilcVen and left for a couple of months. She said she Ihought that was not the answer. Your Friend. DKAR FRIEND: So you arc writing to another social wcrkcr to find out what the answer is? To me it sounds like a com- bination of things: More gentle understanding from her father; physical treatment for the eyes; and patient, companion- able and cheerful work with your girl, to help her overcome her gap in learning. W hen the at mosphere in a home is jarring, the nervous system of a sensitive child re- acts beyond all reason, and she gets even in ore disor- ganized. Her father needs help in realising just what he docs to liis Htlle one. He is impatient wi'h her; probably wants his own flesh and blood to be perfect and is going the wrong way about it, So you need a couple of mir- acles and they can be ac- complished throxigh counselling and doctoring, believe it or not!

It lasted a year, a year of pure hell for me. I am married to a boy too young to know the meaning of the word father or husband. We soon knew that this little game called "house" really where its at not at our age. If I had it to do all over again I pray to Gal I'd have the love for my baby and the courage to give him up. The people who had him to raise would do so because that was their choice aTone, not a penalty to pay for a moment of forbid- den passion stolen in youth, M.P. DEAR M.P.: Your words are more elo- quent ti inn mine. You have been through tlic torment of an unhappy marriage and divorce. T hope M. M, wi 11 read your message. DEAR DORIS: My six-year old girl has trou- ble with co-ordination; her eyes I urn out; and colors are hard for her. The teacher suggested- I have her name colors in a magazine, and cut out pictures.
