Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm B teen-ager who feels cheat- ed by my parents. "Oul of you might ask. The an- swer IB 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 warned But they were wrong. When I went U> 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 try to do the right thing but it isn't easy when I know I don't have to answer lo anybody, f have no re- specl. 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 or else. And them that when kids break the rules to lay it on. Parents irho love their kids don'l have to worry about not being loved in On 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. DEAR ANN LAjNDERS: This problem is not of grave im- portance, but it bothers me a great deal and I need to tell someone about it. 1 celebrated my 75lh birthday last, week and my son's nife and his children had a dinner party for me. It was pleasant, as always, hut 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. 3 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. Speechless DEAR SPEECH: Why do you feel you must he asked s queslion 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 faUier. 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 trealed 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 ol mar- riage. 1 kept cutting out your columns about man-and-wife problems so I'd know what lo do. You made so much sense I was sure it would come in handy when I was older. Now I have a scrapbook that goes back nearly ten years. I have profiled from your advice and this letter is lo thank Buffalo Girl DEAR BUFF: I'm flattered that you would cut out and my columns for ten years. For those who didn't and would like to see a collection of the best Ann Lajiders. I've published a hook called "Truth Is Stranger." It's in paper- back and sells lor 95 cents. Write lo Bantam. 666 Fiflh Ave- anue, 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 fisten to you. DEAR HUSBAND: t am fast slipping into a stale of de- pression as I face another season of watching you 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 o( your eyes and you wouldn't even notice. I find it fascinating that you can call each and every 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 New Year's if was the same story. When your children grow up they will re- member that you ignored them. Nature has a strange way
