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.
