Reality Check

Don't tell my daughter she's beautiful!

| May 06, 2011

Dear Carolyn,

My daughter is an 18-year-old beauty. Men fall out of their chairs when she walks by. I used to be a beauty too but a hard life has wrecked my looks. I know she’s lucky to be so attractive, but to be honest, I worry about it. Men are pigs and she has no idea how much trouble her good looks can bring her.  She’s a smart girl and is going to college to become a nurse. Still, I worry about her all the time. I don’t want her to put all her eggs in the beauty basked like I did.

What should I do?


Dear Suzy,

What do you want to do?  Put a bag over her head?  Because you can’t do anything about her external beauty.  It sounds like she’s on the right track and not nearly as concerned about her looks as you are. I suggest you encourage her in her studies and focus on getting yourself a hobby other than worrying.

I’m just say’n,
