(lows) AaVltet THUMDA V, NOV. 14, Better to Be Sure Than Uncertain By Abigail Van Buren |c W> kf Cftlctf* Tfl»»IW.N. - V. Ntwt §»»«., Inc.) DEAR ABBY: The teacher called me for a conference because of an essay my daughter had written as part of a class assignment. It was entitled "My Father," and it went like this: "My father is the worst father in the whole world. I am ashamed of him. He left us when we were small and my mother had to work to feed us. I hate him." Abby, my daughter was four years old when her father left us, and she hasn't mentioned him in all these years. She is a moody child but I think it is just her nature. My other children seem happier and better adjusted. Well, this teacher suggested I take my daughter to a psychiatrist. I don't believe too much in psychiatry. I went to one after my husband left me, and many hundreds of dollars later all I got out of him was the sage advice that I should "adjust" to the situation and make the best of it. I don't want an emotionally disturbed child on my hands, but I can't afford to pay a psychiatrist just because a teacher says she thinks my child needs one. What should I do? CONCERNED DEAR CONCERNED: Ask your family doctor for his recommendations, after telling him the background. Far better to investigate psychiatric help for your daughter and be told she doesn't need it, than not to seek it when she does. DEAR ABBY: The letter from "WORRIED MOTHER" ' who is concerned about telling her 11-year-old son the facts of life, sounds like many parents with whom I have talked. After teaching elementary school for 17 years, I have found that the parents of 11-year-olds who think they are going to tell their children something new in revealing the facts of life, have a lot to learn themselves. Sincerely yours, DAVID S. MILLS, PRINCIPAL DOW, ILLINOIS DEAR ABBY: I am an only child and have been married a few years. AU of a sudden, after 25 years of marriage, my parents say they can no longer put up with each other's "foolishness" and they want a divorce. I think they are being very foolish and it upsets me terribly, but I don't know how to help them solve their problem. Incidentally, don't suggest that I try to get them to see a marriage counselor because they wouldn't, not if it was the last thing they did together. FORLORN DEAR FORLORN: Have your parents asked for your help with their problem? I'll bet they haven't, because when two people agree that they've had "enough" of each other, as far M they're concerned, there's no problem. The only problem I see here is yours. It's the inability to solve a non-existing problem between your parent*. DEAR ABBY: Re. that late-working husband who made a habit of worrying his wife because he was ashamed to say to his boss. "Excuse me, I have to call my wife and let her know I'll be late." Most bosses admire and respect an employee who shows that kind of consideration for his wife. In fact, that is one of the qualities a boss looks for when he considers a man for promotion. How do I know? I am a boss. PRESIDENT OF A BIG CORPORATION WITH A BIG NAME, IN "BIG D."
