Pages: 6, 8, 194, 195

Article

When should you consult your lawyer?

Almost every American family gets into a legal snarl at some time or other. Faced with time off the job, court costs, and perhaps a big judgment to pay, they rush to a lawyer and are often told, "I'm sorry, but there's little to do now except go ahead with a lawsuit. If you'd only come in sooner, we could have avoided all this trouble and expense."

Article

What's wrong with this family?

It's a healthy attitude for parents to be concerned over what happens to their children and also for children, like Sue, to be con-cerned as to the effect of their actions on their parents. Mrs. Man-son's statement that John and Sue can't really afford to buy the house may well be true.

How to keep a family together

One afternoon last summer, I sat in a boat speeding across a lake in California and looked back at the man and woman we were towing. They stood on water skis, zipping along as if on ice, throwing silvery spray and creating countless little rainbows. They'd shift weight a bit, leap over the boat's wake and hit the water again-- splat!-- like the slap of a beaver's tail. Presently the man discarded one ski, lifted his free foot and wrapped his tow rope around it.
