I remember banning my daughters from reading Jackie. This would have been about 1979/80 when they were early adolescents. I bought their magazines/comics each week & monitored everything they read. I remember being horrified one week when reading the problem page in Jackie.
A 14 year old girl was seeking advice on what to do about the fact that her parents wouldn't let her stay out at night as late as she wanted to. The advice given was along the lines....Your parents need to understand that you're getting to the age when you should be making these sorts of decisions for yourself....etc etc blah blah.
As if! Straight in the bin!
We laugh about it now but at the time it was way out of order.
