TWELVE EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27. 1952 Phone 4GOO for a WANT AD Taker Mary Hunvorth's Ma it Editor's Note: Matron asks advice for husband's sister, considered the family problem, fl.i she reiusee to share expenses. 'DEAR MARY HAWORTH: I live with my husband's family and get along fine, as his mother vowed when her sons married (she has four) that she wouldn't interfere in their marriage, as her mother-in- law had done. The problem that troubles us is her daughter Kay, who is said to be very spoiled, as her parents sent her to private schools and tried to give her the best of everything. My husband and I are helping with'the upkeep and taxes on their house, which is big enough to accommodate three families. The father had assumed that Kay would help financially too, if things got bad in their declining years, as she is employed at a very good salary. But she refuses to give them money. Kay rejects their appeals for help by saying they always had money enough before, and can't be short of money now, especially if dad can afford to drink, which Kay detests. To which the mother replies that they do need money, and Kay could 1952 • WASHERS • RANGES • REFRIGERATORS NOW ON DISPLAY Goodyear SERVICE STORE 217 N. Mechanic St. Phone 52 help a lot if she would; and that when dad drinks, which isn't often, It is because of Kay's attitude. Kay threatens to leave home, and says they would get by if she took her life. Things have reached a point where the parents can't talk to Kay now, but she gets along fine with John and me, and confides in us, when we ask her to supper, or to have tea with us occasionally. She stays in her room most of the time she's not at work. She tells me she would like to have some of her friends in occasionally <she has two that I know of)—but she thinks the house isn't nice enough. When I try to persuade her to give a little something to her parents, she insists they don't really need her money. I know she isn't happy and I'd like to help her—if you'll tell me how. F. B. Girl's Attitude Is Demoralized DEAR F. B.: In condensing your letter I've tried to distill the true picture of Kay, which you haltingly present in vague outline. As I get the picture, spoiled is hardly the word for her. Kay's attitude towards parents, acquaintances, etc., seems more negative and withdrawn than wilfully headstrong. She is stoically DO YOUR BANKING WHERE PARKING IS NO PROBLEM! CUMBERLAND SAVINGS BANK "M»mb«r of Federal Deposit Insurant* Corp." Virginia Av«. at 2nd St. unfilial and timidly unsocial. This suggests that her outgoing impulses were consistently thwarted, and her character growth stymied v by insistent authoritarian manipulation in formative years—at home and in school. And I surmise that she finally lapsed into static rebellion against prodding -and, chiding — hence offers passive resistance to parental demands of any sort. In trying to give Kay "the best of everything" from their view, the parents may have done her an unkindness. They may have thrown her to the lions, figuratively, in the '[sense of forcing her to compete, i unarmed as it were, with schoolmates of far more advantageous background, Insofar as money, family prestige, social connections, etc., are concerned. And meanwhile they may have been nagging her for demonstrable evidence of gratifying achievement—as due return on their investment. This essentially self-serving type of pressure, applied by ambitious parents to a hamstrung child, may damage the mainspring of person ality—namely, self confident zesi for life—and lead to defeat all around. Best Dissolve Sick Situation Considering the profound an tagonism and sick stalemate that exists between Kay and her parents it would seem mutually beneficial for her to live elsewhere. And i: she were psychologically able to make the break, she should move out—and find work and lodgings in distant community. Thus situated. he might in time, with psychiatric elp. recover emotional balance, and evelop a mature compassionate cceptance of her parents' frailties. As a wage-earner living with her arents at present, Kay owes them egular payment for room and board —at the prevailing rate in your rea—and she should meet these Dayments, whether or not they need" extra money. But if the parents are trying to queeze additional special donations rom her, Just because she's home and unmarried, their behavior is infair. For advice—encourage Kay o get wise disinterested counsel mtside the family circle. M. H. V Walsh -McCagh -46O-376 B.C.
