Daughters dating a black
A devout Republican and gun rights advocate, she no doubt discovered that both of her daughters had been promiscuous and were sleeping with black boys and she took it upon herself to put an end to that cycle. Not that she learned anything from the hundreds of commenters saying she’s crazy. I agree that maybe her actions were extreme, and no doubt enhanced by mental illness but that is no reason to persecute and vilify her in the media now that she is gone. The only good news here is that I can’t imagine other Christians would ever get on board with her deranged perspective. As far as I am concerned, she is a martyr for Christ. I guess this is what a Christian honor killing looks like?2) Many kids may know that as a parent you have a point, or that you see something they wish they had detected or done something about earlier.In recognizing this, they are usually more reticent to approach you for fear that you will say “See, I told you so” or “See, moms are always right.” In January, a young woman came to my office to let me know that her absences had been due to being diagnosed with genital herpes.If your folks draw the line and ask you to leave home over this, then you will have to make a tough choice.DEAR AMY: My single daughter is 47, never married, does not date, has a great job, and is very attractive — but she has a serious problem.They say, “This world already has enough problems; you don’t need to add this one (meaning an interracial relationship) to the mix.” My parents have always been loving and supportive, and it seems so silly that they are basing their judgment of him purely on the color of his skin.Shouldn’t they only care about the way he treats me? Parents who have adult children living at home have the right to control the use of the family car, expect financial or chore contributions, and make conditions concerning smoking, drinking, drug use, and occasional reasonable curfews.
DEAR AMY: I disagree with your answer to “An Older Lonely Heart,” the woman engaged to a widower with a 10-year-old daughter.
Your boyfriend sounds like a nice guy, and you should have a relationship with him if you want to.
