Mary Haworth's Mail Editor's Notej Divorced father at;tempt» to contact son; Overture is . -turned down; I« this final? DEAR MARY H A W 0 R T H Twenty years ago my former wif had to choose between her mothe and me. (The mother was liviri, with us instead of with her goo- husband.) Unhesitantly my wif divorced me, and her mother di vorced my father-in-law. Periodically since then I hav tried to negotiate an exchange o civilities for our son's sake; bu the grandmother always blocke •things with a scene. I could see i would be more peaceful for all I stayed away, but conscience al ways forced me to try again. When there was any cooperation or respect for my rights to see my son, I sent support money. Bu such contacts were few, scattered and unsatisfactory. The two women have never re married and have lived meagerly as recluses. I remained single for seven years, after the divorce. Mj second wife would love to know my son arid could be friendly with his mother. : , •• Should He Drop Hope Of Unity? Recently I called, at their home (they have no phone) and the women were out. But a neighbor tolc me that John, now 21, was recently married. and is in the Army — stationed 500 miles away. I hac long felt that Army life might correct his woman-dominated perspective; and the fact that he married despite their possessiveness also encouraged my hope of his thinking for himself. Wanting to see him, I sent special delivery letter (I don't believe in surprise visits) expressing affection,'Wishing happiness to him and his bride, and saying I would like to visit at their convenience. The letter was returned marked; "Acceptance refused." Must I try to forget about a real relationship with him? Although his mother had never acknowledged my entreaties, or Christmas cards, or news-bearin; notes, or letters to the boy, I had hoped he might be different enough from her — or at least curious enough — to see me. I admire your counsel to others and would appreciate your comment on this. -B. C. Mother-1n-Law Is Destructive DEAR B. C.: As I get the pic- hire, your mother-in-law is the typical dragon Mom, who wages ruthless war tin the "interloper" who tries by marriage (as she sees it) to "come between" her and her • prized offspring—her only child, or her favorite child, or her most dependent child, ar the case may be. Her morbidly distrustful social bias, the peculiarity of her personality, is clearly outpictured in the recluse life she has led, with her daughter and grandson under her wing, the past 2C years. She is an infantile character, with an incapacity for marriage, and with a panicky parasitical need to make absolutely sure (if possible) that iier love-objects won't (and can't) leave her. And to this end. she strives to make them feel helplessly dependent upon her militant "protectiveness"—and fettered also by gi'ilty consciousness that she expects them to stand by her "gratefully." in return for "ail she has done for them." Son Struggles For Self-Esteem Such a woman could hardly miss producing a daughter who would compulsively choose Mom, in case a decision was forced by the hus- 'band. And two such women, "mothering" a boy without a reuJ man's influence to the fore, would of course fill him with hostile de- carded dad. justify their themselves? Alarming Situation SHELBYVILLE, Ky. </PI — Two would-be burglars obligingly — but accidentally — called the police ivhen they entered a lumber firm n the wee hours. One of them knocked a telephone off the hook. The operator relayed vord to officers that something strange was going on. So the poke rushed out and nabbed the pair. To further estrange the boy from his father is his borrowed contemp for that allegedly worthless man which colors his feelings abou himself. .^Unconsciously (if not conscious iy) he is apt to feel no-account too —because he is basically lacking in the sure self-respect of persons happily identified with decent bar monious parentage. Thus he in clines involuntarily to stay as far as possible from the "bad father' figure— while trying to assemble some self-esteem. This is the emotional chain re action back of your son's rejecting attitude. It was unrealistic to expect that he would be manfully "different" from his mother, when re'ared in conditions that conspirec to make him grandma's puppet. As you are an Army regular, my advice is .to talk things over with the be Army chaplain, can engineer a and perhaps man-to-man meeting with your son—so-thaj^the soy may learn to know you as~you really are.— M.
