Teen in foster home sees world through new eyes
DEAR ABBY: I am almost 14 and live in a foster home. Before I entered foster care, I didn’t think much about other kids and teens in foster homes. Now that I’m the one with the title “foster kid,” I see everything in a new light. Although foster homes are a blessing to most kids who live troubled lives, it’s still very hard to endure. If there is one thing I hate about being a foster child, it is feeling different from others in my new neighborhood and school.
My message is: If there’s a foster child you know, please reach out to him or her. We’re not different from the rest of you. — NAMELESS IN OREGON DEAR NAMELESS: If people are hesitant to reach out to foster children, it may be because they are confused about why the children are in foster care.
Children are placed in foster care not because they have done anything wrong, but because, for whatever reason, their parents have neglected them or cannot provide a safe, nurturing environment for them. It is not the fault of the children. Foster children deserve all the attention, affection and encouragement you can give them.
DEAR ABBY: In response to your recent column about women involved with narcissistic men, I thought you should print a list of criteria from the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.”. — BARBARA NESTINGEN, M.S., M.S.W., MILWAUKEE DEAR BARBARA:
CRITERIA FOR NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER: A pervasive pattern of grandiosity as indicated by five (or more) of the following:
1) A grandiose sense of self-importance — exaggerates achievements and talents.
2) Preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty or ideal love.
3) Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by other special or high-status people or institutions.
4) Requires excessive admiration.
5) A sense of entitlement — unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations.
6) Interpersonally exploitative — takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends.
7) Lacks empathy — is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others.
8) Often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her.
9) Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.
For New Braunfels native Jon B. Cox, the months of drills, inspections and training evolutions are finally over.
Cox and his squadron, Helicopter Mine Countermeasures (HM-15) “Blackhawks” have proven to the Navy that they are ready to deploy to the Persian Gulf and can handle anything that may occur during their four and a half month mission, which began recently.
