May 10, 1973 THE LETHBBIDCt _ 21 Potty i training BOSTON (AP) Until now. n little kid faced potty training alone because, says Dr. Joac Selzcr, adults "thought the idea of writing about urine mid b.m.'s was dirty." Dut now the toddler can march into the hard, oval world o[ dry undies with a book in hand to give him guidance and, adds Dr. Sclzer, an understand- ing "that somebody like him went through the same thing he's going through." Dr. Sclzer, 45, a mother o[ two girls who is a child psychol- ogist at the New England Home for Little Wanderers, wrote the book, No More Diapers (Dela- cortc Press, New on tho theory that "potty training is a lime in the development o[ chil- dren that can he trying." The book, which tells how one child learned to he dry, is meant to be read to children, but a lengthy foreword gives ad- vice to the worried parents. Cool it, Dr. Selzer. tells the parents, "most children do not present real problems." CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS Nevertheless, she warns that potty training, improperly clone, "can lead to basic feelings of in- feriority and worthlessness that may persist for a lifetime." "We, as psychiatrists, have seen many instances in both elu'ldrcn and adults of conflict during this phase which has af- fected the personality." Too rigid training, she said, helps produce "people who are overly concerned wiUi cleanli- ness and perfection and order. call them compulsive peo- ple." Too permissive potty training, she said, practised by parents who find it "difficult to set lim- its on their children's behavior may be one of a number of reasons why we now sec so many children who have pool- control over their own impulses and little respect for any au- thority."

When 1 firsL came here I started lo read jinir column in the newspaper because it was something I could understand from the very first day If also helped me know flic custom and the human nature of Americans. I want to comment on the letter frnm the lady who com- plained that one of her relatives had an annoying habit of licking the comers of her mouth when she talked. Her tongue was very long and unattractive. This habit annoyed many people hul no one knew wliat to do about it. Please lei me fell you how 1 cured an uncle of mine of a habit which was driving a few people crazy. He used to be a tall.-er, this uncle, and because he was so rich, everyone listened to him as if lie really had something to say. When he spbkc, he would use his_ thumb to push his nose from left lo right and from right lo lelt, never slopping for n minute. I decided to let him know he v.as bothering me, so f stretched my nctk, got very close lo him and my eyes followed his nose, from left to right, from righl lo left. 1 just kepi staring at him until it made him so nervous he stopped. The whole family thought Ihis was quile remarkable bul lo me il was only common sense. Admirer DEAR VIRGINIA: Common sense is not so common, Thanks for writing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You gave good advice lo Ihe girl whose fiance kept stalling about, marriage. I hope she lislens. When 1 was in my lale 20'.s J went will) a jnan who was three years my senior. Every time I broached the subject of a wedding date Alvin disappeared. My friends kept telling me that all men hale lo be pinned down, and Alvin's behavior was "normal." Aflcr three postponements I told Alvin lo leave me alone because I wasn't going to waste any more time on him. I moved miles away and asked him not lo call or wirte. Two years later, guess who appeared at my doorstep? Himself in person. I was sjre he ready to marry me, but the clod stayed in town for a week and never gol up the nerve to pop the question. It's six years later. Alvin still wnles love letters and sends gifts. He tells me he has "come close" lo marriage a few limes but he jusl can't bring himself to make that final slap because I'm Lhe one he really wauls. You told the gal with the same problem Ihal Ihe guy was bonkers and to tell him to get lost, I hope she takes your advice. Not All Bad DEAR SINGLE: So do I. Women who are content to go with guys for umpteen years don't really want lo gel married eilher which is perfectly all right, so long as nobody is kidding anybody. Is pol a drug? Can IjSD and pills open new worlds for you? Stop guessing. Get Ihe fads in Ann Landers' new book- let "Straight Dope on Drags."
