Dear Ann: I've read your column for years. I must admit that I thought a lot of the stories were made up by you and your staff, but now after what has happened to me, I would believe anything. My husband had been molesting our daughter for several years. She told a close relative, who then told me. It was a terrific shock. At first I refused to believe it. We were a middle-class family, my husband a professional with good morals and well-respected in the community. When I confronted him, he said he was sick in the head and would do anything to get well. A friend gave us the answer. We are now in a therapy program called Parents United. My daughter is in the same program, only it's called Daughters Sons United. I'm so grateful for this group of people who have suffered through the same problem. These folks saved our marriage and kept me from going crazy. We are now a family in the process of working together on a day-to-day basis. I urge all young people who read this letter, if it is happening to you please tell your mother, your teacher, your doctor, the mother of a girlfriend — SOMEONE. And I urge all you mothers to please listen to your children. Believe them and do something about it. Only 1 percent of the children are not telling the truth! Fathers, men, women, if you will only seek help, the problem can be put in the past. Contact a Parents United group in your area. Child sexual abuse is a terrible tragedy. People need to know that they have to talk about it and there are groups to which they can go for help. Please print our hot-line number — 213-3254368 — which I'm sorry to say is not toll free. Urge your readers to write. The address is: Parents United, Inc., P.O. Box 84353.

Dew Ann: My son is engaged to a nice girl and loves her very much. But she has osteogenesis imperfecta. I've tried to talk to my son about this, but he won't listen. I don't know much about this disease, but I do know there will be no children if these two get married. I am having a hard time convincing them that a marriage without children is no marriage at all. Please, Ann, give me some information about this disease. No one will listen to me about the fears I have if they marry. It wories me sick. — Read You in Greensboro Every Day. Dear Greensboro: Osteogenesis im- perfacta may or may not be inherited. It could be the result of rickets or a glandular disturbance. The symptoms are abnormally brittle bones that are subject to fractures. So much for the medical side. Now for the human relations aspect: I advise you to butt out, Mother. Whether or not to have a family is a decision that should be made exclusively by the two people involved. Moreover, your notion that a marriage without children is "no marriage at all" is incor- rect. In fact, I have received many letters from readers who say their jfiiir- riages would have been better if they hadn't had children. Sad for the kids who are born to parents who don't want them? You bet. But that's the way it is — and there are more of them out there than you think. _, * -ft -tr ,..-;£ Confidential to Can't Figure Him Out: Stop trying and accept him as he is. Marriage is not a reform school. This might sound like a contradiction, but being a little nutty now and then is perfectly normal. It can also be refreshing. No one is 100 percent rational and in perfect control of himself a| all times. We are all capable of doing something completely out of character now and then. This doesn't mean we are crazy. It merely means we are human. Look into your own life and you will see what I mean. Going to a wedding? Giving one? Or standing up in one?
