'Silent Treatment' Wont Do the Trick By Abigail Van Buren It t»47 tv CKIcata TrlkuM-N. Y. Nl»t tnt., IlK.) DEAR ABBY: When I got home from work last evening my wife said to me, "Buddy [our 16-year-old son] sassed me back so I am giving him the cold silent treatment, and I want you to do the same." Abby, I told her that I was not going to go along with that kind of stuff, that if the boy sassed her back, that was HER problem. He never sasses ME back. The wife got mad and now she is giving ME the silent treatment, too. Was I wrong, or was she? A HUSBAND DEAR HUSBAND: She was wrong for demanding that you punish the boy per her prescription. And you. for letting her down. Altho Buddy wasn't guilty of sassing YOU, his rudeness to his mother calls for some punishment, and since his mother appears unable ^o discipline him, it becomes YOUR responsibility. A few well-chosen "hot" words from you could have accomplished more than the cold, silent treatment. Unless you are looking for a father-son team versus mother, you had better develop better communications with your wife. DEAR ABBY: I am 22 and have been married to a wonderful guy for only two months, and already I have problems. His mother. My father-in-law travels, so when he is out of town my nervy mother-in-law invites herself to sleep at our apartment, claiming she is afraid to stay home alone. She sleeps on our sofa, which doesn't give us much privacy as we have only a pull-down bed in the same room. She has other married children she could stay with who have been married longer than we have. Last week she spent four nights here. My husband doesn't like it any more than I do because he complained to me about it. He is her only son, and the youngest, and it looks like she doesn't want to lose him. What can we do? NO PRIVACY DEAR NO: Your husband is complaining to the wrong woman, and so are you. You should ask HIM to tell his mother. If she is as nervy as you say she is, maybe all the married children should pitch in and hire a Mother-sitter for those nights when her husband is out of town. DEAR ABBY: What do you think of a person who calls you up just to "chat" at midnight? She has got me out of bed several times. Also she knows I work and like to sleep late on Sundays, but she has awakened me at 7:30 Sunday morning. If I don't answer, she keeps calling until I do. My husband insists that I tell her off, but I just can't get up the nerve. She is alone and I suppose she is lonesome. I have tried not answering the phone when she calls late at night, but she keeps calling thinking we were out. I understand she does 'this to all her friends and relatives. How can I stop this in a nice way? PHONE CALL NERVES DEAR NERVES: Tell your friend [this is a "friend?"] which hours she may telephone you, and, if she doesn't respect your wishes, TELL HER OFF; And if you don't, I wouldn't blame your husband for telling YOU off. You owe him more than you owe this woman. DEAR ABBY : My mother is always on my back about something. It's "Hang up your clothes, sit up straight, talk slower, turn down the TV." What's a poor defenseless teenager supposed to do anyway? CHEWED OUT DEAR CHEWED: Hang up your clothes, sit up straight, talk slower, and turn down the TV.. •Frigidaire • Maytag •Monarch SALES & SERVICE BEED HARDWARE & APPLIANCE Titonk*, lew* Phont 928-2127 A NEW CONCEPT IN FAMILY VACATIONS' ,.as low as'5°°a DAY VAGABOND VILLAGE On Beautiful Potato Lake...
