This by the men in their lives, chances are the girl will come to believe it's natural for men to hit women. Some women believe they deserve to get hit because they haven't been good enough girlfriends or wives. Some women believe men hitting them is a way men deal with stress. These women say, "He only hits me when he has a bad day." Other women feel hitting is a way men show their love for them. These women say, "If he didn't love me, he wouldn't hit me." Some women allow men to hit them because they feel they'll lose their boyfriends if they tell them to stop the abuse. Some women allow men to hit them out of fear. They feel if they fight back. their boyfriends will hurt them even more or if they leave the relationship their boyfriends could kill them. Other reasons women allow their boyfriends to hit them include low self esteem, fear of not being able to find someone else, a feeling their boy- friends will change with a little understanding and love and a belief their boyfriends are truly sorry for abusing them when their boyfriends later apologize. I've always felt God did not put females on this green earth to be human punching bags. If a woman is in an abusive relation- ship, the female needs to find someone else; especially if the female happens to be a teenage girl. There are plenty of young men for young ladies to choose from for a ,relationship. These young men would rather hold a young woman's hand than punch her in the face. Young ladies, if you find your- self in an abusive relationship, you may want to think about finding another boyfriend. He may say he's sorry for hitting you today but he probably doesn't mean it. If you are trying to change him and hoping things will bet better you are probably wasting your time. If you're afraid of him, call the police• If you're staying with him because you lack self esteem, think men should abuse women or any other reason call me, we need to talk. Don't forget to write.

A course in "Active Parenting" of teens will also be offered in the near future. Parents or others concerned about a teen in their life are encouraged to call Se- neca at 645-3319 and ask for an Adolescent Day "lYeatment staff member. "The Adolescent Day Treat- menI Program ts a new approach to dealing with problem use of alcohol and drugs among teens. Surveys in the local schools here have shown that the use and abuse of alcohol and of various chemical substances is fairly widespread," according to Dr Kirk. "The experience of teachers and guidance counselors here in Greenbrier County has been that families tend to minimize or deny that a problem exists until the teen either gets into trouble with the law or is failing out of school," Dr Kirk added, "The Adglescent Day Treat- ment Program offers help to teens and parents before the substance abuse requires hospi- talization. The advantage is that the day treatment program is conducted in a less restrictive setting than an inpatient treat- ment program. It allows partici- pants to slay in school, and even helps them to catch up in sub- jects that they may have fallen behind," Dr Kirk concluded.
