If it isn't possible to get away, the next best alternative is to obtain a baby-sitter and go out to breakfast or dinner alone. If that is out of the question, then select a time at home when the children are occupied and the phone can be taken off the hook. Generally speaking, how- ever, the farther you can get him from home, with its cares and problems and stresses, the better your chance will be to achieve genuine communication. 3. Manner: It is extremely important that your husband does not view your conversation as a per- sonal attack. We are all equipped with emotional defenses which rise to our aid when we are being vilified. Don't trigger those defense mechanisms. Instead, your manner should be warm, loving and supportive as possible under the circumstances. Let it be known that you are at- tempting to interpret your needs and desires, while his emo- tional state into consideration. Postpone the conversation if he is under unusual stress from his work, or if he isn't feeling well, or if he has recently been stung by circumstan- ces and events. Then when the timing, set- ting and manner converge to produce a moment of opportunity, express your deep feelings as effec- tively as possible. And like every good Boy Scout, be prepared. QUESTION: Do you think children between the ages of live and 10 should be allowed to listen to rock music on the radio? DR. DOBSON: No. Rock music is an expression of an adoles- cent culture. The words of teenagers' songs deal with dating, broken hearts, drug usage and love-love- love. This is just what you don't want your 7-year-old thinking about. Instead, his world of excite- ment should consist of adventure books, Disney-type productions and family activities--camping, fishing, sporting events, games, etc. On the other hand, it is un- wise to appear dictatorial and op- pressive in such matters. I would suggest that you keep your preteen so involved with wholesome ac- tivities that he does not need to dream of the days to come.
