Don't Let Ideas Sway Your Way Of Living * When thrre generations live under one roof the member of the in- between genratlon sometimes gets cought in the middle. Here Is a Letter from a woman who is in that unenviable position. She writes: "My husband's mother lives with us and though she is a fine woman she has strict and somewhat old - fashioned Ideas. "She doesn't a- 1- pprove of our 14- Ruth Mlllctt year-old daughter's going to school dances. She had plenty to say when I bought her a formal. And she highly disapproves of her weftrin? lipstick, even though all of the girl her age do wear It. "With my daughter pulling m one way and my mother-in-law puling me another, it is difficult to know what is right." Your situation isn't an unusual one—nor Ls It new to this day and age. The viewpoint of a grandmother cf a teen-ager can be poles apart. That is, unless the grand' mother has made a determined effort to accept things as they are today Instead of constantly comparing them with how things were when she was a girl Evidently the grandmother in your home hasn't made that effort, and ! so she is against ideas that weren't acceptable when she was a girl, even though they are acceptable loday. That .makes It difficult for you. But you mustn't lei yourself become confused to the point of not Snowing whether or not the decisions you make regarding your daughter are right or wrong If they seem right to you, then don't worry that they don't always seem right to your mother-in-Law Your first duty is to do what you feel is right fov your child—not to win your mother-in-law's approval at the expense of your child's happiness. ing.
