Dear Abby 7/5

DEAR ABBY: This is in response to "Young Mom in Oklahoma" (May 7), who wrote asking if it was OK to discipline her 4-year-old by smashing his toys with a hammer. Your response was appropriate. However, that mother should be encouraged to attend parenting classes or speak to her son's pediatrician regarding her problem with how to discipline her son. I am very concerned for the child's well-being if she even has to ask if it's OK to smash his toys with a hammer. - A MOM WHO CARES

Dear Abby 7/3

DEAR ABBY: I am a former junior high and high school teacher. I do not agree with your advice to "Deflowered in Pennsylvania" (May 2), the 28-year-old who made some "poor choices" as a teenager and is no longer a virgin. She is dating "Chris," a 26-year-old man who is saving himself for marriage and wants to marry a virgin. You told her that because Chris needs time to think about this discrepancy, she should move on.

Ask Dr. Gott 7/4

DEAR DR. GOTT: My question concerns my 34-year-old son. He does not smoke or drink and is in excellent health. However, he recently had pains on his right side, and they got so bad he went to the emergency room. He was admitted to the hospital for three days. All kinds of tests were performed, and finally a CT scan detected multiple blood clots in his right lung. He is now on Coumadin, under the care of his family doctor and nearly back to normal.
