They were regarded as 'hi|h society," yet I was coattantly beaten, kicked and brutally mistreated all through my childhood. To this day I have a senu-crippled hand as a result of the batterings I received as a child. Today I am 30, happily married with two children of my own. Long ago I broke off all relations with my parents as I could never forgive them for the way they treated me as a child. My wife is urging me to make friends with my parents who are now in their 60s, have begged to see their grandchildren and repeatedly asked us to visit them. I want nothing to do with them. Most recently they have dangled a large inheritance in front of us. My wife thinks I'm crazy to pass up this fortune. She wants me to forgive and forget. I can't seem to convince her that I can't forget what they put me through and want none of their handouts now. Am I wrong. PÂ«gÂ»9 W.V*., FriUy Moraine, April Â«, DEAR LONG: Your feeling! of resentment are vndersttndable. However, if you want no part of a prospective "large taheritree" for yoonetf, yon matt consider it for your wife and chlMrea. Aad for them, if not for your parents, letting bygone* be bygones would seem to be a timely compromise.
