Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Here It is in a nutshell: I was married at 15 and had a son one year later. The following year I had another son and two years later, a third. After ten years of a stormy marriage my husband left me. I was determined to raise my boys to be good citizens. For some unknown reason the women in my family do not show their age. My mother is 69 and could easily pass for 48. Although I am 35 I still get asked for my I.D. card when I order a cocktail. Several of my sons' friends have had crushes on me. I always laughed about it until a few months ago when a certain 16-year-old started hanging around the house, writing poetry about me and playing my favorite songs on his guitar I am ashamed to tell you how much I enjoy this. Ann, I've been dreaming about this kid for a week straight. The next morning I feel so guilty, I can't look at myself in the mirror. I have plenty of friends my own age and do not lack for male companionship. My special beau is a police officer in the juvenile division who has been a tremendous influence in helping me raise my boys. Do you think I need to see a psychiatrist? If I Mow my desires, I hate to think where they will lead me. What should I tell myself to keep me on the straight and I know I must do at all of L.A. DEAR R. J.: If you really want to solve this problem, Mrs. Robinson, don't talk to something to the kid. Like, "Flake off, Buddy Boy, I'm old enough to be your mother." DEAR ANN LANDERS: This might be the most unusual letter you have received in a long while. You frequently call on physicians for help. This time a physician is calling on you. Please tell me what to do about a 24-year-old daughter who is divorced, has two children and plenty of money from her ex-husband. The girl will not use the good brains God gave her. She runs around with a bunch of crazy kids (most of them younger than drinks beer with vodka chasers, smokes about three packs of cigarettes a day, is dangerously overweight and eats everything she shouldn't. She has high blood pressure and a peptic ulcer but refuses to take the medi- cation I have prescribed for her. If this girl were not my daughter I wouldn't bother with her for five minutes. I hate to turn my back on her but .the situation is going from bad to worse. She has seen two psychia- trists and didn't get along with either of them. I am drained dry, talked out, disgusted and fed up. What do you1 Denver Doldrums. DEAR DEN: This girl is going to prove that you can't tell her what to if it kills her. And it might. Tell her at once to find another doctor. Offer to recom- mend a couple and let her choose. Don't remind1 her to take her medicine and don't ask her how she feels. The punitive aspects of this girl's self destructive behavior ire enormous. She doesn't care what she does to herself so long as she makes life miserable for you. When she discovers you have resigned as her whipping boy she might give up and get well. DEAK ANN LANDERS: WJiat can be done about a young !n-law who is too lazy to acknowledge a wedding gift? She waits until she runs into people. Then she gushes all over them and blurts out a list of excuses for not writing a thank- you note. This is especially embarrassing when people outside the family call me to ask If their present was received. The usual phrase haven't had an acknowledgement. May- be the gift went astray." I haven't said a word because I don't want to start any- thing. It I ever told her what I thought, it would be the end of our relationship. Can you suggest a way to teach the bride nme manners? White Flams, N.Y. DEAR N.Y.: Sounds like your daughter-in-law. Sorry about that. My advice is to say nothing. If her own mother didn't teach her manners, she is not likely to appreciate any belated lessons from her mother-in-law. When questioned about an unacknowledged' gift, urge the person to call Super Slob and ask her if the gift was received. There'! always a chance the gift did go astray, In which the ftora should be notified. Confidential to Which One Which Number one wunds like the best of the lot. A sinner can reform. Mannen on be teamed. But an idiot is forever.
