Things I Want My Nieces To Always Keep In Mind

Barbara Acklin

You've Been In Love Too Long

The teens and twenties are some of the scariest years for everyone involved, especially the adults who know what the teenagers haven't learned yet. Other than driving and drinking, dating and romantic relationships are some of the most dangerous. Having been through it with my older nieces and nephews, I wish some of the older ones had known this. I'm making sure the youngest ones at least hear it, whether from Martha and the Vandellas or Bonnie Raitt or wherever. All I know is I'd sleep better at night if everyone would keep it in mind.
