DEAR MARY. HAWORTH: Ol younger son Sid, 24, is causing i quite a bit of worry. We manage to send him to an out-of-state co ege where he did excellent woi and found time for fraternity lif 'ootball, elc. We had a nice family relatio: ship and he was always proud introduce us to his friends whe we got down to see him; and \\ were cooperative and lent him th car when he needed it. We didn mind the sacrifices as he was s appreciative, always doing son' little favor for us. After graduation, he was calle into the Army. It was a drasti change, difficult for him, 1 'but was able to adjust—and as he wa stationed nearby at first; he coul get home often. Later he was sen out West, where he met a.gii whom he seems to like very rhucl [ think he to marry, bu nesitates as he has another. yea the Army. Family Move Didn't Help Recently he has been returned t nearby camp • and we find him < completely . changed person. H< nagged us until we were forced t move from our comfortable apart ment for his sake, even at grea nconvenience to ourselves. Bu hat didn't solve the.problem. HI s still surly, moody and critica vhen home; • and I am beginning o wonder .how. we ever managec o live this'long. Sid even sat and sneered—ignor ng our request for help—when we arried heavy parcels from th :ar. Should we tell him. to stay way from home until he is able o treat us decently? Or should we hink of him as sick—and put up vith his contempt? His girl came to town 'for a short isit and we find her to. be a lovely Jiffy Gift! DOLL CLOTHES In Mid-Crisis Of Adolescence? DEAR E.J.: It sounds as if Sid is just arriving at the long pants stage in his psychological develop ment. He seems to be in mid-crisis of delayed adolescence—now suf "ering the distaste for parents, am "amily patterns, that normally 'ledgling boys usually experience between.the ages of 15 and 18. Perhaps the- complete change .hat overlook him, while stationed out West, has to do with his getting partially weaned—for the first ime — from erstwhile total emo- ional involvement with, and dependent upon, his parents. Until the Army took him away, out of rea'ch of family visits, and 'isits - home, perhaps Sid's folks vere his whole life, figuratively ipeaking. Which may have been due to a maternal policy of well meant, overly protective- sentimental care of him. And when this arrangement was :ut off, and he began to discover he possibilities of satisfactory :ompanionship with a girl, perhaps ie also began to entertain certain esentments against authority Un- hiding his parents') that he hadn't .dmitted to consciousness before. \eaclion To •. domination? Habitually dominated, persons sually have to make a transfer f dependency feelings from one impprtanl" sustaining relation- hip to another before they can let lemselves feel or reveal any marked unfriendliness or criticism s regards the previous set-up. It may be that Sid. reassured by sense of mutuality with . his weetheat, now ' finds . courage lo fight" the family. And, in letting fC steam thus, maybe he is also entilating a good deal of resent- lent of Army life—which'he un- onsciously confuses with family- ossing. In other words, maybe Sid is aving growing pains, during a eriod. of mounting weariness, aused by romantic frustration and ie daily monotony of Army drill. Hurry! Hurry!
