OVERPROTECTIVE PARENTS WON'T ACKNOWLEDGE TEEN'S TRUE AGE

DEAR ABBY: I'm a 15-year-old girl whose parents treat me
like an 8-year-old. They not only refuse to let me see any
movie that isn't G-rated, but they still cut my meat for me!
Once a week we go to the park, and they still push me on the
swings.

I don't want to tell them it's embarrassing because I'm
afraid I'll hurt their feelings. Please tell me how to con-
vey to my parents that I'm not a child anymore.
-- OLD ENOUGH IN VIRGINIA

DEAR OLD ENOUGH: Your parents mean well, but children who
are overprotected to the extent you have been often become
stunted in their development. Teens do not learn social
skills and how to make appropriate choices when they are
"supervised" to the extent you are.

Tell your parents that you love them, but in three years
you will be 18 and an adult. Explain that you know they
love you, but if you are not allowed some freedom now, then
you will be behind your peers because of your inexperience
when you have reached an age when you'll be expected to make
wise choices. Remind them that even children half your age
are sufficiently coordinated that they can cut the food on
their plates, and you would appreciate their allowing you to
get some practice.

If this doesn't help them let go, then ask another adult to
help you deliver the message.


DEAR ABBY: Two family members passed away, and because we
live several states from our family, we were not informed
of their deaths until many weeks after the funerals. Whose
responsibility is it to notify us of a death in the family?
-- LEFT IN THE DARK

DEAR LEFT IN THE DARK: There is no designated person who
makes the call. Often it is a family member conveying the
sad news, or a close family friend if the family is too
devastated or too busy making funeral arrangements to reach
out. That you were not notified until weeks after the funeral
-- not once but twice -- implies that there may have been
some sort of estrangement. And if that's the case, you have
my sympathy.

DEAR ABBY: An old friend from high school came to visit.
While she was here I couldn't help but notice that her teeth
and gums were in awful shape. Her gums were red and swollen,
with dark plaque around the gum lines.

I feel terrible for her. I'd hate to see her lose her teeth.
She's only 30, but it's clear she'll be in trouble if she
doesn't see a dentist ASAP. How can I let her know that she
really, really needs to do this?
-- CONCERNED IN L.A.

DEAR CONCERNED: Have a heart-to-heart talk with your friend
and ask her why she hasn't been seeing a dentist. Tell her
you are worried about her because diseases of the mouth can
cause problems in other areas of the body or be a sign of
illness.

If her problem is a fear of dentists, she should know that
there are dentists who specialize in treating patients like
her who can administer anti-anxiety meds to help her. And
if her problem is money, that she should contact dental
schools in her state to see if she could be treated as part
of their supervised training for dental students. You are
right to be concerned about your friend, so don't put off
talking to her.
