Your Problems — by Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: This letter is from a Canadian mother of (Oshawa, Ontario) and I regret j to say our teenagers are rushing headlong into adult activities, I the same as U. S. teens. This is causing Canadian parents no small amount of anguish. Our son, Barry' who is barely 14 years of age and in grade eight was invited to a party by a female classmate. We thought it would be all right for him to go. When Barry returned from the party he proudly exhibited the prize he had won for kissing the longest — 15 minutes to be precise. His partner in the kissing game was a 13-year-old girl. I was appalled at such behavior and told him so. He replied, "Jt takes a party like that to wake a fellow up, Mother." Ever since he attended the party he has been lippy and insolent. I told his father the lad needs a good cuffing. But his fa'ther says Barry is feeling his oats and we should not be too severe with him. What is your advice? — D. Dear D.: You'd better haul Barry back in line promptly — oats or no oats — or there will be no stopping him. All teenagers test to see what they can get away with. If you draw the lines clearly and firmly and let them know exactly where the limits are, you'll have no trouble. Eighth graders should be play- ing pin the tail on the donkey,. many mothers, and some physi- not kissing games. And where duns, but rarely do I hear from were Ihc parents anyway? Tell a pnysician who is also a mother, ycur son he can't go to night Thank you for an interesting let- it boy-girl parties, and stick. * * * make DEAR ANN LANDERS: 1 am a physician-mother who keeps tabs on your column. You hove the responsibility of a judge, referee, teacher, and priest It's. fun to see you come through with one good decision after another. I was especially interested in the letter from the young mother of four children who couldn't get out erf bed until noon. I'm suspicious when she says she puts toys in their beds and they play quietly for hours She probably has them in a dark room witb the TV turned up. No young person should be in bed till noon unless the doctor says there is a need — and in my opinion, this is one case in a million. I feel this girl should be encouraged to take pride in the care of her children and h.ome. Hers is an exacting and demanding job, and ofteii she'll get no praise fn.m her husband. The rewards for the mother come 10 to 20 years later. If a wife prepares three meals a day, keeps the house clean, and attends to four children properly she will fall in bed exhausted at 10 p.m. For professional reasons I must remain — ANONYMOUS Dear Anonymous: I hear ter * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a beautician who loves my work. 1 am an expert at hair-styling and tinting and I make good money. The man I want to marry is wonderful and we are very much in love. The problem is he just can'f hold a job. He makes a nice appearance and is pleasant, but since July he has worked only 40 days. He doesn't know what his problem is and neither da 1. Please don't think we are crazy, but we'd like to know if a marriage could work if the husband stays home and keeps house and the wife earns the living? My fiance likes housekeeping and is good at it. I hate it. I know this is unusual, but I don't car e what people say and neither does he. May we have your frank opinion? — OFF BEATERS Dear Off: The conventional role of the male in our society is that of breadwinner. The, female is the homemaker. If you think you can turn this topsy- turvey, try it, but I don't think it will work. Your best bet is to • find out why he can't hold a job — and correct it. 51 YEARS in the cleaning business... ^Sf£r£?4 \UJt J ow« TO*-" Li_ i»4- IM* «AiirtAt3L t *^_ ._ Tr\Hl. .•* Vt^« S^^^isA\ *& on ^ ft VJvnds 0 . 1 ; ^ness,. anj in Garden A RECORD OF SERVICE TO BE PROUD OF!
