Xu. 38 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Wed., June 17, 1970 Daughter 'goes wrong 9 - dad's broken-hearted DEAR ABBY: When our daughter graduated from high school, she was described as "a highly intelligent, well-adjusted, clean-cut girl," so we were confident that we could send her away to college. Well, she has completed her sophomore year and we have just learned that our confidence in her was badly misplaced. During her first year we noticed that her friends appeared to be the "hippie type" ... but she defended them, saying they were "good kids" and they all looked like that. Last summer she worked at a resort. We visited her frequently and noticed nothing amiss. However, now we know (hat she sometimes slept with boys who were casual dates. Also, she slipped away one weekend to attend a "rock concert" with three "guys" she hardly knew, and slept in one room with them. How does a well brought up girl turn into such a tramp? She had love, a happy home, and a religious background. My wife is under a doctor's care now and seems headed for a nervous breakdown. Perhaps if you publish this letter, some other kids will see it and stop short of By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN wrecking a happy family. We have another daughter, younger, and it sickens me to admit that my wife and I have lost all desire to bring her up. We feel that teaching decency and honor to today's children- is useless. DEFEATED FATHER DEAR FATHER: In spite of the best parental guidance, and the ultimate in examples of "morality" at home, our young people today are faced with temptations we never knew. (Drugs, freaky friends, the horrifying fear that there will be no "world" soon. Who knows?) In any case, even tho your eldest daughter fell under the influence of her peer group, I urge you not to abandon your responsibility as parents now. And the younger one deserves your best efforts, too. These are times when our chil- dren need our love and understanding most. DEAR ABBY: I am not a hippie. I am not a rebellious student. I am a girl, 18 years old. I don't drink or smoke. I don't use pot or LSD and I don't stand on street corners waiting to be picked up. I am a virgin and no boy puts his hands where they shouldn't be. I have plenty of dates. So what's my pro- lem? In your column you labled me (and countless others) as having no respect for our- selves. Why? Because we walked with a boyfriend with our hands around each other's waists, or we sat close together in a car. So what's wrong with an expression of affection and love these days? Would you rather we hid our feelings In the back seat of a car? Would that be more "proper?" No one would see us there. DISAPPOINTED IN YOU DEAR DISAPPOINTED: Aw, come on! There is nothing wrong with young lovers (and older ones, for that matter) expressing honest a f f e c t ion in public—to a point. But that "point" ends when they put their hands where they shouldn't be, exchange passionate kisses before God and everybody, and give the general impression that they are in a bedroom, (or would like to be!) DEAR ABBY: Congratulations to the women who stopped her husband from coming to the table topless by threatening to serve him bottomless. It didn't work for me, but it was worth a try. When I appeared bottomless, he went to the bedroom, put on a shirt and came back bottomless! So what's wrong with an occasional cold dinner?
