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.

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.
