By Abigail Van Buren c 1974 by Th« Chicago Tribune Her football fellow's out of bounds DEAR ABBY: I've been dating this real neat guy who keeps telling me that I don't have to worry about his getting me pregnant because he was injured while playing football. Should I believe him? NANCY DEAR NANCY: No. It sounds to me like he'* trying to complete a pass. Kick him in the end zone. DEAR ABBY: Concerning the man who was married for 25 years and wanted his. wife to give him one weekend off from his marriage every month: How I wish I were married to him. That's exactly what I want. I suggested it to my husband once, and he hit the ceiling. Everyone but a wife gets a vacation. I mean a chance to really get away from the same old routine. Why does marriage have to be a prison? I wish I were younger. I'm 56—too old to start over, or to go it alone. Besides, I have no special training, so I guess I'll just have to go on as I have.eveji though my husband and I have little in common except our children. So in order to be supported, and keep the high regard of our children (now married), I'll continue to allow my husband the intimacies I no longer enjoy. Talk about P Thones°tly think that with all the changes taking place today women will eventually get a break, and have the sexual freedom men have. It's too late tor me, but not tor "YOU can?hdp me, Abby. Nobody can. But it would be interesting to know if I'm all alone in my outlook. Or are other women who feel this way? ocner rfQQ DEAR BORN: I'm sure you're not alone. I hear from thousands of women your age who feel trapped in dull, tired marriages, but they ask how to improve those marriages. You didn't ask, so I'll not offer any advice. I can tell you, though, that the answer is not in the "sexual freedom you wish you had. DEAR ABBY: My formerly favorite nephew who lives in another state was married last June. I sent him a generous check for a wedding gift. I heard nothing from him, but noticed that when the bank sent my cancelled checks, the above-mentioned check was among them. Isn't it customary for people to write thank-you notes for checks? I recall how 1 laughed when I read in your column that a bride and groom had received a check for a wedding gift, and on the back they endorsed it and scribbled, "Thanks." Not a very proper thank-you, but I was more than I got.

Family Lib Spanking teaches a child how to hit By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Joanne) Mrs. Wanda Campbell of Athens, Ga. has asked us about spanking as a form of discipline. We have yet to meet a parent who has not resorted to spanking their children once or twice - and that includes ourselves. But in our experience, spanking is a form of anger-indulgence for parents, not an effective means of discipline for children. whenever one of us punished one of the kids with a spanking, the spanker was left feeling miserable and contrite. As Dr. Maria Piers points out in her valuable book. "Growing Up With Children," corporal punishment makes fathers ana mothers feel awful, and when they feel awful they will often go overboard trying to make up for the punishment with presents or unwarranted affection. Parents used to spank their children plenty, without feeling guilty. Then a reaction set in. As Dr. Benjamin Spock has noted in his all-time best seller, "Baby and Child Cure," "Many parents decided that spanking was shameful. But that didn't settle everything. "If an angry parent keeps himself from spanking, he may show his irritation in other ways, for instance, by nagging the child for half the day, or trying to make him feel deeply guilty. I'm not particularly advocating spanking, but I think it is less poisonous than lengthy disapproval, because it clears the air, for parent and child." The late Dr. Haim Ginott acknowledged Dr. Spock's view, but put more stress on the harm spankings can do. "What is wrong with spanking is the lesson it demonstrates. It teaches children undesirable methods of dealing with frustration. It dramatically tells them. 'When you are angry — hit!'" Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish, two parents who participated in Dr. Ginott's workshops and found his methods effective and humanizing, have written their own book, "Liberated Parents/Liberated Children," which is filled with practical applications of the Ginott approach. When one of the women in his child-rearing workshop told Dr. Ginott she had hit her son, Dr. Ginott was not surprised. "When we are provoked," he told the group, "we want to attack. But we're not monkeys or.rats. Were human beings. And as human beings we have a choice." What Dr. Ginott stressed was the importance of releasing anger in short bursts, before it builds up into an explosion. He advocated "anger without insult." Statements like, "your whining makes me angry," or the familiar refrain of Sesame Street's muppets, "That makes me mad!" are preferable to ego-crushing attacks like, "You are a miserable brat!" It' parents find themselves continually enraged at their children, or frequently resorting to physical punishment, they should discuss the problem with their pediatrician, a qualified psychologist, or a member of the self-help groups such as Parents Anonymous designed to aid parents m coping with their own violent impulses. As human beings, we have a choice. Copyright (r) H74 Lewis iind Joanne Koch Melrose EHC meets Melrose Home Extension Homemaker's Club met in the home of Mrs. W.A. Powell, Thursday, October 10.
