DEAR ABBY: Our daughter, “Naomi,” who is 8 years old, has men taking piano lessons for three years. In recent months she seems to have lost interest in the piano, and it's a struggle to get her to practice. I usually lose my temper, and she ends up in tears.
I finally gave up trying to force her to practice. My theory is that unless she is motivated by her own desire to learn, ifs not worth the hassle — not to mention the money we’re wasting on lessons.
My husband disagrees. Hethii ks we should make Naomi practice no matter how much she hates i I should also mention that our s. \ “David,” who is now 13, was allowed to quit taking violin lessons three months ago because of his many school obligations, plus making the football team — which his father wholeheartedly approved of.
Naomi is angry. She can't understand why we let her brot her quit his music lessons, hut we are not allowing her to quit.
What do you think. Abby? If you have a solution my husband will listen to. perhaps we can have some peace in this house.
FIGHTING IN FLORIDA
DEAR FIGHTING: Assuming that David started taking violin lessons when he was 5, he has had eight years of music lessons. In order to treat both children equally, Naomi should take music lessons for another five v oars.
Don’t give up so easily. I ell Naomi she may quit when she’s 13, if she wants to.
For what it’s worth, I have had numerous letters from readers saying they w ere forced to take music lessons and they hated it at the time, but later on, they were glad they weren’t allowed to quit when they begged to.
However, readers have never written to say they regretted getting a musical education —

even though they often practiced with tears in their eyes.
DEAR ABBY: Thank you for suggesting that licking envelopes and postage stamps is unsat. ary, then recommending a damp sponge instead. Right on.
Many years ago, when I was living in a college dormitory, I noticed that my postage stamps were not sticking to the envelopes no matter how much I licked them. Then I discovered that cockroaches were eating the glue off the stamps! With everyone in the dorm getting cookies from home, it was impossible to rid the dorm of roaches.
Now that I have my own home and am confident that it is free of bugs, I lick without worrying.
JOHN WAYLAND, WACO, TEXAS
DEAR JOHN: Better keep your tongue in your mouth. I learned the hard way that storing those brown paper grocery sacks is not a good idea. The glue on the sacks attracts not only cockroaches, but mice and rats, too. (Sorry if I spoiled your breakfast.)
DEAR ABBY: We would like to pass along a family tradition we started some years ago. A few days after each Christmas and birthday, we go through our daughter Kristin’s toys. With her help, we decide which toys she doesn’t play with — or has outgrown — and would like to give to less fortunate children.
In addition to the obvious benefit of children getting toys they might not otherwise receive, it teaches our lwn child the joy of sharing.
So instead of selling those old but good-as-new toys your children have outgrown — or boxing them up to store in the back of your closet or attic — give them to your local charity. After all, isn’t the joy of giving worth far more than a couple of hucks made from a garage sale? THE MC ALEENEN FAMILY, (’HARLESTON AFB. S C.
