Dear Abby: My 20-year-old daughter recently caught me “actively engaged” in watching porn. I tried to do it late at night when I thought everyone was asleep. My daughter now thinks I’m a pervert.
Her mother raised her with conservative beliefs about any expression of sexuality. I’m worried about her ability to make a future marriage work, and I want the wonderful relationship we shared back. Some people have suggested that as she matures and becomes more aware of the real world, she’ll come around. But I’m a relatively old 58 to have a child her age, and I don’t want to wait until I’m gone for her to “come around.” What can I do? — Missing My Baby Girl
