Life Begins at Forty Parents Are Curious About How Much Money Son Mokes By ROBERT PETERSON ,Q. "Isn't it normal for parents to be curious about ho\v thrir children arc doing? Our older son tells us everything — what his take-home pay is, how mii.-h he spends on groceries, what he owes on his car. But the younger son clams up at the mention of money. He's reasonably kind and supports his family, but he won't even tell us how much he makes." ! A. We're all built differently- some enjoy discussing their finances, and others prefer to keep it to themselves. Your sons , are adults now and as long as they're successful and considerate you should thank your lucky stars and quell your curiosity about their finances. Q. "We have a son who Is normally very sensible. But he fools around with the stock market and he's going to get burned.

"What can I do about a sister who constantly reminds me of my age? We're twins born 55 ears ago. I look a dozen year* younger however and see no reason to let afiofii know I'm more than 40. fiut by sister delights in teWrig folks we're twins adding 'we'll fteref see 50 again/ f», you blame m* for getting furious?" A. Stop worrtaf. There's tto particular merit to tooklflg oung- er than you are. You may think you look years younger than your sister, but you're probably kidding yourself. It's important for proper psychological adjust- fittftt that we take pride and ffleinitt to our age. When we cWiceal it or lie about it we are to effect telling ourselves we're aihamed o oar age—and this can have serious psychological repercussions. ' 0.
