DEAR ABBY: I teach fifth grade 'I a public school. Many students face a great deal of adversity and disappointment.
Last month, I gave them an ssignment that entailed writing a I tear Abby” letter — either real or imaginary. Needless to say, there \ ere many letters dealing with the usual complaints about siblings; however, one student submitted a I tier about one of the biggest prob-I ins affecting children today: Par-i tits who fail to keep their promises.
I am sending that letter to you. If \ou publish it. perhaps parents will take notice.
DEAR ABBY: Sometimes I get so mad at my mom because she says •lie is going to come home at a cerin time, but she never does. She 1-0 tells me she is going to take me ^nowhere when she gets home, so wait and wait and wajL N° mom. I hen when shit finally gets home, - Uh) late to go. This really gets a i mad.
What advice can you give me?
STEAMED IN PHOENIX
DEAR STEAMED: Calmly tell your mother that her broken promises disappoint and anger
you. Explain how important it is to you to spend time together.
All parents, regardless of how busy they are, must first be there for their children, lf they have to schedule time together, so be it; that's a feet of modern life. But parenta who make promises to their kids, and then continually break them, are setting the stage for a bitter and loveless relationship.
"DEAR ABBY: I am a 63-year-old man who has no children — but loves them. A letter in your column a few months ago about a child who had an allergic food reaction and suffered memory loss set me to thinking: During World War ll, I was 9 years old, and just about
everyone wore circular metal ID tags stamped with their name, age and address — in case New York was ever bombed.
Almost every Sunday, I see ads in the newspapers where dog owners can send for identification tags for their pets. However, I cannot understand why there are ID tags for pets, but not for children (or even senior citizens) who, at times, don’t know who they are or where they live.
For that matter, if children wore the tags in plain view, and those tags were printed with warnings about allergies or medical problems, there would be fewer incidents like the one that was in the article I read.
WALTER KARLAK, WOODSIDE, N Y
DEAR MR. KARLAK: Your idea is excellent for people of all ages. There is a company that produces "medic alert" bracelets, necklaces abd key chains to be worn at all times to alert potential caregivers to serious medical conditions. These items can be obtained from some pharmacies, medical/surgical supply stores, or by asking your doctor.
DEAR ABBY: I hope you won’t think this is too dumb to answeV, but when I kiss my boyfriend, I always keep my eyes closed, but sometimes I open them for a split second just to see if he has his closed, too.
Abby, his eyes are always open. Does this mean anything? I think if a fellow is really enjoying a kiss as much as he should, he would keep his eyes closed. Am I wrong? And should I mention this to him?
DEAR MELANIE: Maybe he keeps his eyes open to see if anybody is watching. Don’t make an issue of it. Traditionally, love is blind.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 36-year-old woman who fell in love with a man
my age. He was born in a foreign country and speaks very little English, but there is a very strong physical attraction between us.
When he makes love to me, my heart pounds and I am in heaven. His inability to speak English is somewhat frustrating, but he knows how to make a woman feel thoroughly loved.
Should I consider marrying him?
DEAR DERATING: It’s easier to teach a man to speak English than to teach him how to make a woman feel thoroughly loved. But keep in mind that real love encompasses more than just a physical relationship. (He sounds like a good catch to me.)
