Ann Landers THE BETTER HALF By Barnes Nevimbw IS, THf IETHMIDGE HEtAlB It DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a teen-ager who feels cheat- ed by my parents. "Out of you might ask. The an- swer is discipline. I know this sounds silly but it's true. My parents thought they were being nice to me by let- ting me do whatever I wanted. But they were wrong. When I went to the homes of friends and saw them being told what to do, what time to come home, asked questions like "Exactly where are you going and with I felt cheat- ed. Let down. I wondered why my parents didn't care enough about me to get tough. I I try to do the right thing but it isn't easy when I know I don't have to answer to anybody. I have no re- spect for my parents because they have no power over me. Kids respect power. Please tell parents to set up rules and insist that they are .obeyed-or else. And tell them that when break the rules to lay it on. Parents love their kids don't have to worry about not being loved in My Own In Oregon DEAR ON YOUR OWN: You've said succinctly in one letter what I've been trying to say in hundreds of columns and three books. Thank you. "I'll put your tobacco at the end of my list where I'll tee it if the shopping money you give'me reaches that far." Swiss scholarship prize in contest DEAR ANN LANDERS: This problem is not of grave im- portance, but it bothers me a great deal and I need to tell someone about it. I celebrated my 75th birthday last, week and my son's wife and his children had a dinner party for me. It was pleasant, as always, but it was like every other dinner. They talked among themselves and I was excluded from the con- versation. No one asked me what I thought about anything. just sat there like a bump on a log. I felt like an outsider. Yet these are my dearest kin and I love them very much. Is this the way it is with other grannies? Please tell me the truth. DEAR SPEECH: Why do you feel you must he asked a question before you can express an opinion? If you have something to say you should speak up. Or totter still, ask your grandchildren questions about topics that interest YOU. My grandchildren have taught me plenty! DEAR ANN LANDERS: Eighteen months ago my mother ended nearly 20 years of an unhappy marriage by divorcing my father. It was a quiet divorce and my sister and I to live with Mom. Mom married a wonderful man six months ago. It does our hearts good to see her treated like a human being. Be- cause of all the years Mom and Dad were fighting, or clam- ming up and not speaking to each other, or sending mes- sages through us kids, I developed a terrible fear of mar- riage. 1 kept cutting out your columns about man-and-wife problems so I'd know what to do. You made so much sense 1 was sure it would come in handy when I was older. Now I have a scrapbook that goes back nearly ten years. I have profited from your advice and this letter is to thank Girl DEAR BUFF: I'm flattered that you would cut out and wve my columns for ten years. For those who didn't and would like to sec a collection of the best Ann Landers. I've published a book called "Truth Is Stranger." It's in paper- back and sells for 95 cents. Write to Bantam, 666 Fifth Ave- enue, New York, New York. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Now that tire great home wreck- er (football) is being glorified on all the networks, will you please relay a message to my husband? There is no chance that I can get his attention until January, but he might listen to you. DEAR HUSBAND: I am fast slipping into a state of de- pression as I face another season of watching watch the idiot box as if it were the only thing in life that matters. But then I guess it is. I find it quite remarkable that you chat so easily with the players, whom you don't even know (and who never answer you. of while I sit there, the woman who has been married to you for ]5 years, bore you three healthy, beautiful children, and I could drop dead in front of your eyes and you wouldn't even notice. I find it fascinating that you can call each and everv player by name. You know where they were bom and how much they weigh. I am certain you do not know how much your own children weigh and at this point I wouldn't bet that you could call them by name. For the last three Thanksgivings you have not come to the table to eat with us. Christmas and Now Year's it was the same story. When your children grow up they will re- member that you ignored them. Nature has a strange way of paying people back. When you want their love and af- fection, they will tell you to get lost. The Girl In Your Wedding Picture. Remember Me?
