DEAR ABBV: I am MAD a you. Yes, MAD, MAD, MAD I just got thru telling my daughter that she is not to associate with children of di vorced parents, and then you come along and say people who think that 'way are ignorant! Well, I am not ignorant I am a college - educated Christian woman, married 25 years. If people want to get divorced and drag themselves in the mud, let them associ ate with their own kind. There is no parental supervision in broken homes. The mother is either out working or is too dead tired to care where her children are. And daddy is either honeymooning with his new wife, or out drunk with his girl friend. And meanwhile, the kids are running wild. No, I don't want my children associating with children whose parents are divorced. And if this warps them to tears, I am glad. Maybe it will make them think .twice about what divorce can do. FOR MORALITY DEAR FOR: So yon would punish kids for the mistakes and misfortunes of their parents. You are indeed "mad." DEAR ABBY: What do you groom. Mrs. Gene Carrio of Malvern, Ark., left BlytheviUe Friday after spending a week with their daughter and family, Mr. and Mrs. Mack Palesgrove. They will also visit their son, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Long at Arkadelphia. think of • college . educated couple who, instead, of hirinj a sitter for their three-year- old son, take him wherever they are invited? I don't mean to a casual bridge evening, but to • late dinner party to which six other couplet had been invited. We don't have extra bedrooms as yet, and Mr, and Mrs. X. show up at the door with their Bobby all ready for bed. (Our bed!) They didn't ask us if we minded, nor did they. make any excuses for bringing him. Naturally, the child fusses a little, being in a strange bed and all, and his parent* take turns running in and humor- ig him, which disrupts the entire party. These people can afford a sitter just like tht rest of us, but .they have taken the child with them ever since he was a month old. Any comments? PARTY SPOILED DEAR SPOILED: If tail couple spoiled ONE of your parties, shame on them. If they spoiled TWO, shame on YOU. Your complaioti art valid, bnt if yon want action, you'd better address them to the offending con. pie. DEAR ABBY: My son has . yean. He has changed his mind several times about what ne wants te main Ms life's work and has also had tough breaks In all four «lleg« he has attended. People keep asking me what my son's "plans" •re. I feel that as long as I •m paying tht bills, it la no concern it theirs. Am I right? HOW should I answer them?
