Ann Landers Say You're Too Busy For Visitors Dear Ann Landers: Although we hardly speak, my next-door neighbors' kids practically live in my house. She's a fuss-budget when it comes to orderliness — you know the type — wet-mops her front porch every morning and shines the old mailbox with silver polish. She probably hates to have her own home messed up so she turns her kids loose on the neighbors. They walk in without knocking, use our bathroom, help themselves ti- food in the re frigerator and even go through the dresser drawers. Their mother never looks for them, ANN not even at meal time. I've had to send them home for lunch frequently. Frankly, I've had it. What can I do? Remember, I scarcely know the woman. -AMPLE Dear Ample: Doors can be locked you know — and screens, too. If the children knock, you can simply say you are too busy to have company today. Dear Ann Landers: J rim almost sure my boy friend is taking dope but I can't prove it. He has needle marks on his arms and his eyes always look water}' and dull. His moodishness is more than I can stand. Some days he's in the dumps. I started to wonder when he quit his day-time job and began working at night. He never seems to have a dime on him .and he has borrowed $40 from me in the last two months. I can't get a straight answer about what he is doing. He says he's an assistant manager to a man who runs a tobacco store. The store has no phone and I can't get an address. I love this guy and I'm worried about him. Shall I tell him of mv suspicions? I want to help but what can I do?-SHOOK Dear Shook: Urge him to see a doctor at once. The United States government has hospitals where dope addicts can be treated. His doctor cmi direct him. Remember that dope is an inseparable companion of crime. Insist that he take you to his place of employment. If he is mixed up in something illegal, make him quit or drop him. Confidential to STUCK?: If you signed the agreement then your signature accurately describes your situation. Guys like you shouldn't carry pens. Ann Landers' new book "Since You Ask Me" is now a l>est seller."

FLOORS CH 2-2285 Ottawa Try to be as consistent as possible. If you are mixed up about what you want from us, why shouldn't we be mixed up too in what we give you? Don't try to make us feel inferior. We doubt ourselves enough without your conrirming it. Predicting failure for us won't help us succeed. Say "Nice Work" when we do something really well. Don't hold back the praise when we deserve it. That's the way to spur us on. Show respect for our wishes even if you disagree with them. Respect for you will flow naturally from your respect for us. Give direct answers to direct questions. But don't give us more than we ask for or can understand. When you don't know, say so, but find someone for us who does know. Show interest in what we're doing. Even though by your standards our activities may not be important or interesting, don't reduce them in our eyes by your indifference. Treat us as if we are normal, even when our conduct seems peculiar to you. All God's children have problems. That doesn't mean we're all problem children. Sometimes all of us run into serious emotional difficulties. Should that happen, obtain for us professional counselling. It isn't always easy for boys and girls to understand themselves or know just what they want. That's why there are specialists in personal adjustments and vocational selection. Teach us by example. "What you are speaks louder than your words. Treat each one of us as a person in his own right. Children are people, not carbon copies of grownups. Treat all children in your care fairly; that is, as of equal value to you. That is how we will learn to respect the rights of other people and to treat them fairiy. Make yourself an adult fit for a child to live with. Prove to us "it ain't so" that parents are the worst persons in the world to have children, or that teachers are precisely the people least suited to teach. Show that home and school are not simply places where children learn how to get along with disagreeable adults. Prepare us to lead our lives not yours. Find out what we can do or we want to be before Soup Hint Next time you serve clear chicken soup, wilt some watercress sprigs in it as you heat. Add sliced water chestnuts, too, if you are offering this to company! Hear Guest Speaker Mrs. Lewis Irwin was guest speaker for Kiwaniqueens yesterday.
