It's Starting To Sink In

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!

Much love,


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.
