I'm '• not the only one in our school r who agrees with * you that boys girls should f not be holding hands or walk- With their arms around i each other In 1 corridors Ann Landers, or on the street. Fellows who have genuine respect for their girls keep their hands to themselves in public. Girls who allow them*selves to be pawed look plain cheap. The tegn-ager who wrote: "When two people love each other it is perfectly O.K. to let the whole world know" must have rocks in her head. What do 15 and 16-year-old kids know about love? As a teen-ager I can tell you that what they think is love is only physical attraction. If kids want to be treated as adults they ought to learn the meaning of words. -ALSO A TEEN DEAR ALSO: It's always a treat to get a letter from a teen-ager which reflects solid thinking. I received many letters from high school kids who expressed this point of view, but yours was the greatest. * * * * DEAR ANN: We were childless for 12 years. Then as if by a miracle I gave birth to a darling baby girl. Lisa is 18 months old and my husband refuses to allow me to engage a woman as a sitter. If we receive an invitation which does not include the baby we cannot accept. If we go to the movies we take Lisa along. We've never been away from her for even one evening. I am worried because Lisa is terribly afraid of strangers and will have nothing to do with anyone outside the.imme- diate family. My husband claims we had so many years of gadding about that we should be content to stay at home. Frankly, I'm dying to get out for an evening. I would settle for once a month.—M AND D DEAR M AND D: Young children must learn to get along with people outside the family. The fact that Lisa at 18 months is afraid of strangers proves she already is having emotional problems. By all means start to go out one evening every other week and don't let her tyranize you into staying home. Just say goodbye and leave. * # # * Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of Alton Telegraph enclosing a stamped, self addressed envelope.
