Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _____Tu.idoy, September 12, 1972 LE1HBKIOGE HEHA.LO Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: "Kort Lauderdale's" remarks hit a sensitive spot. I am n mother who takes her two pre- school children shopping because I have no choice. MilUons of other mothers are in the same spot. To suggest that this is a great way to "kill time" is ridiculous. I can think of 200 other things I'd rather do. Few mothers can aftord a daytime sitter every time there is shopping to do. Dad isn't the answer, eitlier. He seldom gets home before the stores close. Most Saturdays he works. When he is free, he is entitled to a day of recreation. 1 resent being called a "slob" because I must take my children with me. I am trying to teach them shopping man- ners, not so much for the sake of the storekeepers, but lor my own sanity. Do you think the merchants would prefer that mothers with small children stay out of their stores? If not, here are some suggestions for tlxun: (1) Don't put tempting objects within the reach of young children. (2) Set up a child-size card table with inexpensive coloring books and simple but sturdy toys. This would give the young- sters something to do besides terrorize Mom and the clerks. (3) Larger stores might consider a playroom with sitters who would be paid by the store or "tipped" by the mothers. I'd be happy to give someone 50 cents to t-akc my child off my hands for half an hour or 45 minutes. I'll "Fort Lauclcrdale" never had children fo take shopping or she had a beautiful arrangement with someone. If it was the latter, I envy her. If it was the former, 1 feel sorry for her. In Nebraska DEAR NEB: Apparently "Fort Lauderdale's" letter struck many a raw nerve around the country. The mail was and 100 to 1 with you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our son will be coming home in a few weeks. He went four years at college and after gradua- tion took a job in Palo Alto for the summer. We paid lu's tuition for four years, but he lived up to his responsibilities by making good grades and staying out of trouble. During his senior year lie shared an apartment with a girl. We let him know we did not approve, we didn't forbid it. We reasoned that a 21-year-old boy has the right to live as he pleases away from home. Yesterday we received a letter requesting that we take the twin beds out of his room and replace them with one large bed which he is willing to pay for.
