Our children have more toys than they know what to do with, and my parents have 'just told us what they plan to give their grandchildren for Christmas and we have told them that we disapprove. In the first place, we think the gifts are very inappropriate for our children, they are far too expensive, and we have no place to store them. My parents say they are not asking us, they are telling us. Abfoy, don't you think they should respect our wishes? And what can we do about it? UPSET IN PA. DEAR UPSET: Yes, 1 think your wishes should be respected. You ctwM threaten to return may unapproved gilts and make good your threat If they insist on leading them anyway. But this would undoubtedly make !( "rough sledding" for your relationship at Christmas, so I don't recommend it. DEAR ABBY: 1 am one of those unfortunate women who had only sons. Out of six children, I never had one daughter. Talk about rotten luck. That was the worst. I know what I am talking about because last Christmas 1 knew what a broken heart felt like. The five older boys are married, and on Christmas and Thanksgiving, too, each went to HER mother's. My younger son has a girl friend, and he went to HER house. Not one of ray sons asked roe if I had plans. I am not a whining, complaining, clinging vine type. I am self-supporting, and can look after myself. This was the first Christmas without my ~. husband, and I .thought surely one of ray boys would invite me forspend' Christmas 'with him. I'm sure if I had had daughters, things would have been different What do you think? MOTHEROFSONS DEAR MOTHER: It's hard to tell. Some mothers have received the same treatment from their daughters. And . some soas treat their mothers like queemi. The little verse, "A son is a son 'til be takes a wife, but a daughter is a daughter aU her life." "ain't" necessarily so! DEAR ABBY: I am a 50- year-old man (divorced) who has been single for rive years, with no desire to marry again until 1 met a charming 45- year-old woman (also divorced). I plan to ask her to marry me and {eel confident that she will accept.
