I've listened to you for over 20 years, and my 15-year-old daughter now listens to your show with me. It's sinking in!
My 20-year-old niece announced she is quitting college and moving three states away with her boyfriend. My sister told us that some friends were going to throw her a housewarming shower. Without missing a beat, my daughter said the following: "That's awful! Mom and I won't be there, right Mom?" I told my astonished sister that, in fact, we would not be attending. My daughter went on to say that shacking up is not a reason to celebrate and that she hopes her cousin uses reliable birth control and is ready to support herself. My sister was shocked, but I was proud.
After my sister left, my daughter told me she's glad we listened to you, Dr. Laura, so we wouldn't mess up our own lives! I told her I was glad, too. Thank you for guiding me in raising my children the right way. You provide a wonderful service to your listeners. Now, if they will only pay attention!
Remember, all of you can send me "letters" too - by email! Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family - it's free - and tell us of your experiences.
