Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2C-TKE LETHBRIDGE September Study recommends more family life education programs EDMONTON (CP) Most of the children referred to child welfare institutions come from families with intense marital, physical or mental problems, says a provincial study released this week. "Children of married couples, children with working parents or with fairly-educated parents usually came into care only if there were very special problems with which normal parents were not expected to says the 195-page study. The report recommends that the province develop more programs in family life education and more programs of assistance to parents in dealing with their children. Other recommendations include: More services for single-parent families since 27 per cent of the 243 children in the sample came from single parent families. More intense social services for natives and the develop- ment of alternative programs to deal with their problems. More effective treatment programs for dealing age delinquents. The study showed institutions are less effective in dealing with delinquent children than in dealing with depress- ed and suicidal children, withdrawn children or retarded and hyperactive children. The study on the characteristics of children admitted to child welfare institutions was started in 1971 by Vivian Lai of the research and planning branch of the health and social development department Her study shows most children referred to institutions from 1969 to 1971 came into care because of problems related to their families. Almost half those studied had brothers or sisters with emotional or delinquent problems similar to their own. Only 39 per cent of the children studied were living in homes where their parents were married and still living together.

ANSWERS ON REVERSE PAGE Woman still suffering facelift side-effects TORONTO (CP) Getting tired of seeing those wrinkles all over your face? Maybe you think a facelift will do wonders for you and make you a lot happier. Forget it, advises Irene Gibson of Thornhill, Ont., mother of three and grand- mother of five, who had one more than a year ago. "I'm against a said the 53-year-old model who doesn't look her years. "It's something to think about very carefully." "You can be embarrassed by looking too 39 when you're you still go around with your own age group. "If I had known what I had to go through, I wouldn't have had it done. I won't have any further, repair work done on my face. What's a little wrinkle here or Irene entered hospital April 27 last year and had her fa- celift the next day. Today she is still suffering side-effects from the operation. "My ears feel as if they are sewn to my head, and I feel like I have a tight strip under my chin all the time. "If it is damp or going to rain, it tightens right up and feels worse, not painful but a sensation that bothers me." Irene said she has to wear her hair the same way all the time because of bad scars just above the ears. scars can be closed up but I won't have it done. It would be like having a facel- ift." Irene had thought about having a facelift for five months. "I had pouches on each side of my chin, a scrawny wrinkl- ed neck and a tired look that made my face look pulled down." It involved a four-hour oper- ation and five days in hospi- tal After the operation Irene's face felt as though "it had all been cut up." After she was home her chin was too sore to touch and she looked "dreadful." "The next couple of weeks were not very pleasant. I had the first stitches taken out after nine days. They were taken out in three sessions with an interval of three or four days in between. "The nights were the worst. I'd turn my head on my stitches and they would bleed and my hair would mat. I had my pillow covered with tow- els- Work was difficult. "I went to my first mod- elling job after three weeks but was sent home because I felt so awful. "I did a fashion show for Eaton's wearing a wig and blood started to trickle down my face while I was on the runway. By the time five months had elapsed. Irene felt her fa- celift was beginning to pay off. "Everybody tells me my face looks wonderful." The total cost of the facel- ift, including the operation, anaesthetic, and a semi-pri- vate room in the hospital, was "I'm happy I've had it done." Irene conceded, but added she would never go through it again. Chris Stewart Flying visit to Canada When Japan's Kyoshi Kitazawa says he's making a "flying" visit to Canada he means just that!
