What do you think of parents who will allow a boy to hang around their house all day and half the night seeing their 14-year-old daughter? He says they never tell him to go home so he just stays. I say they should kick him out at midnight. With summer here it can be a real problem. Eighteen months ago we got a 15-year-old daughter-in- law, and six months later we had a grandchild. We certainly don't want any more of that. Please, help us. CONCERNED PARENTS DEAR CONCERNED: Don't depend on the girl's parents to discipline your son. That's YOUR job. Since the girl obviously has no rules, -'ou should make some for your son. His father should have a serious man-tfl-man talk with him. (Mayhe his brother can give him the benefit of his experience.) Your son needs desperately to be guided and disciplined. DEAR ABBY: Our daughter was recently married and some relatives (on the groom's side) sent her a beautiful sterling silver tray with the following card: "If your marriage last a year, please return this tray and we'll have it monogrammed. Love, Aunt Helen and Uncle Dave." Would you say these people had nerve? BRIDE'S MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: Yes. And also experience. DEAR ABBY: My husband has been glassy-eyed ever since a certain creature half his age moved in next door. She sun bathes in a bikini in Il»lll!lllllll!llll!llllil!lli1l!llll!lillllllll"llli her backyard, and my middle- aged Romeo has been trimming our hedges until there is nothing left to trim. This poor soul is so top heavy it is a wonder she stand up. At a recent party she staged an impromptu go-go routine and it was a case of stand back or be knocked thru the wall. How can I get my husband to act his age and quit drooling over this freak? That unfortunate girl has my prayers. ELLA ON SOUTH OLIVE ST. DEAR ELLA: Don't waste your prayers on the "freak." Pray for a short summer with lots of rain. Noel Hicks Noel Hicks, a former Blytheville resident, died Friday in Hollywood, California.
