Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I grew up reading your column and your word is law where I'm concerned. My problem is driving me nuts because jusl when think I have it set- tled one way, something happens lo change my mind. 1 am 24 and there are Iwo men in my life. They both want lo marry me. My four-year-old daughter, Beverly, dislikes Artie because he refuses to cater to her and he won't let her fiel away with anything. He is a strict disciplinarian and doesn't stand for any foolishness. Joe, on the other hand, siwils Beverly rotten. She can twist him around her lilLle finger. Of course, she is crazy about him. I don't need either of these men for financial support. I have my own money and have always been able lo com- mand a good salary. I am happier when I'm wilh Artie. always have so much lo talk about and we gel along well togelher. But I do Ihink a woman with a child should consider thai child's feelings when she Ihinks of remarriage. Beverly keeps telling me she wants Joe to be her daddy. I need your help, For One DEAR TWO: Any woman who would let a four-year-old child tell her who lo marry is beyond my reach. I am not about to make the decision for you either, but I can lell you lhat a parent who allows a child to do as she pleases does that child no favor. Discipline is a special kind of love. It's also hard work. It's easier lo say yea than kids know it. DEAR ANN: We have been pleased with your interest in abused and haltered children. More children die here each year as victims of battering than from any olhcr single dis- ease or cause. We would like. parents everywhere lo know something can be done lo break tin's horrendous cycle. A Sanla Barbara physician's wife, Mrs. Harold E. Mies, out of her concern for a child who had been beaten la death by his nineteen-year-old falher, organized a listening, referral end resource centre called CALM (CMld Abuse Listening Me- diation, Inc.) which has a backup service of volunteers. CALM'S volunteers go into the homes of troubled clienls lo act as compassionate listeners and friendly neighbors to help avert crises and relieve tensions. These troubled parents are encouraged to seek counselling from whatever facilities are available in the community. Through the concern of CALM's volunteer friendly help, Ihey find answers for the problems which might other- wise drive them to laking out Iheir frustrations and anger on their children. The tremendous response to this program from persons needing help has convinced us that a similar need exists in every community, yet as far as we have been able lo de- termine, no olher such organization existed in this country prior lo our inception. We are extremely anxious for olher communities to know what can be done, and lo have others take an interest in starting similar programs to work towards preventing child abuse and neglect everywhere. We will he happy to share information or slatislics with anyone who might be interested. Our address is: CALM, P.O. Box 178, Sanla Barbara, California 93102. Sincerely, Mrs. Enid L. Pike, Executive Director DEAR MRS. PIKE: Here's your letter. You are perform- ing a great service and I'm sure the response will be tre- mendous. Thank you for writing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: When I read the teller from lhal woman who has a pathological fear of dentists I knew I had (o write this letter. I'm one of those people wlio is scared to death of dentists, too. I'm over 50 years old and have been this way all my life. My dentist solved the problem like lliis: He knocks me nut wiLh sodium pentathol ard it works like a dream. He has done as much as two hours' work in one sitting. When 1 wake up it's all over. No novocaine, no fear of the grind- ing nothing. It's more expensive, but worth it. Tell thai woman, will you? Teelh. DEAR HAPPY: My dental consultants say sodium pen- tathol can be dangerous unless administered by a trained anesthelisl. There should bo oxygen handy in case the pa- tient runs into trouble and needs to be resuscitated. He sug- gested nitrous oxide (laughing gas) which is an analgesic, not an anaslhetic. It's a pleasant, casy-to-conlrol gas. The patient experiences a feeling of elation and there is no pain. Tuesday.
