Family Lib Make the school fit the child By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Joanne) Most parents have already purchased the new three-ring binder the required number of pencils and erasers, the ruler the lined paper. Here are a few pointers that may be far more important than school supplies in helping you and your kids have a brighter school year. ,..,.», .• 1 Insist that the school system serve your child. Martin Gold, associate professor of psychology at the University of Michigan says that parents should not assume the school knows what it's doing. He urges parents to be advocates tor their children, pressuring the school system to create a learning environment from which their child can derive a feeling of accomplishment. Professor Gold believes that any child can feel this sense of satisfaction in school, if the environment is suitable for him/her. If your child comes home with a lousy report card, states Professor Gold, the response should not be, What s the matter with you dummy? But, "How come your teachers don t know how to teach you?" So don't be afraid of the school system, even if you were brought up to believe that the child is always guilty until proven innocent. Encourage your children to be conscientious, to get work done on time, to cooperate with the new teacher who is so different from last year's favorite. But make sure the teachers are going their job. 2 Declassify those top-secret files. Over a year ago. we discussed the way cumulative school files are kept on children, - files which are not shown to the parent or the child and which can seriously affect the child's future opportunities. Since this practice was exposed, federal legislation has been passed regulating these record-keeping procedures. Any school receiving federal funds has to allow the parents the rifiht to see all the information in their child s cumulative file Parents now have the legal right not only to examine their child's record but also to challenge infprmatioirin the file which they feel is false or based on insufficient evidence. Find out what records your school has been keeping on your child. Make sure any detrimental evaluations - Potential delinquent," "behavior problem, "slow learner, are based on sound evidence. Make sure your child is not suffering today for a prank he played in kindergarten. 3 Examine your own »xpectations. Teachers and parents tend to see what they expect to see Evidence shows that it teachers believe their pupils are high achievers, those pupils will become high achievers, regardless of l.Q. If the teacher believes they are slow learners, she will olten deny evidence to the contrary and eventually the students will become slow *^ rnt?rs The same is true of parental expectations. We can easily lock children into expectations based on their past performance or based on a close resemblance to a family member But inheriting a nose like Grandma's doesn't mean she 11 write prose like Grandma's. Reading difficulties with a first grade primer doesn't mean reading difficulties for life. Hold out the hope your children will achieve aad there is a good chance they won't disappoint you.

He's a tease, a clown and an all around kidder. The problem is that most of his kidding is downright cruel. He has said things to the children and me that have hurt us deeply, and when we become upset, he laughs and says, "1 was only kidding....can't you take a joke?" He's done this with others, but—heaven forgive me—sometimes I wish someone would punch him. Why does a person have to hurt and insult others and then try to pass it off as a joke? Don't tell me I'll get used to it. We've been married for 16 years, and I still hate it as much as I did 16 years ago. I honestly believe he's sick. And if he is, can he be cured? TEASED ENOUGH DEAR TEASED: When aggression and hostility are built into a person's personality, he is indeed "sick." And he can be cured only when he is made to realize what he is doing, and the reason for it. That's hardly a job for a wife and children. It should be done by a very close friend, 1 a therapist, or an empathetic clergyman. DEAR ABBY: I have been in business long enough to know that in dealing with customers, patience and courtesy is always the best policy. But what do you do when a customer calls you on the phone and cusses you out without giving you a chance to explain? To make matters worse, he refuses to give you his name, but keeps cussing you out in four-letter words. BAMBOOZLED IN BEND, OREGON DEAR BAM: Say, "Sir," if you can't give me your father's name, please give me your mother's." I'll bet he hangs up in a hurry. DEAR ABBY: Thank you for letting your readers know that although many unmarried mothers are keeping their babies, the Salvation Army's Booth Memorial Hospitals are still open and serving a good purpose. My son was born at such a hospital. I was five months along when I entered Booth. Soon I realized that my imp'ression of unwed mothers' homes was totally wrong. It's not a place where "bad girls" go to have their babies. I met many really nice girls who had gotten messed up one way or the other. Many would-be fathers had just walked out, and these girls had no other place to turn. 1 received group counseling, individual counseling, room and board and the knowledge that I wasn't the only girl about to have a baby all alone. I recall all the get-togethers we girls had and how we talked about our fears. That was the best therapy in the world, just being able to talk without shame to someone in the same boat. I decided to keep my child, although I had no job and no husband in sight. For me, the decision was a good one. For others it would not have been. It was rough. The looks, the criticism, the tears. My story has a happy ending. Seven years later, 1 married a wonderful man who adopted my son. 1 know this is too long for your column, but please, Abby, keep reminding girls that homes for unwed mothers offer more than bed and board. It's their counseling that saves so many lives. Every unwed mother needs counseling, no matter how much she feels she doesn't. BEEN THERE DEAR BEEN THERE.

POLLY'S POINTERS Chair legs stain her light carpet By Polly Cramer === Polly's Problem =—— DEAR POLLY - The legs on a mahogany chair made ugly dark stains on my celery-colored wool carpet. I hope some reader can tell me how to remove these mahogany-colored stains from the carpet. I have now. put moleskin on the bottoms of the chair legs to prevent it happening again but damage is already there. - MRS.H.W.M. DEAR POLLY — My Pet Peeve is having to pick up trash scattered by stray dogs. It seems the makers of trash bags could treat them with a dog repellent for a very slight extra charge. - MRS.R.B.H. DEAR POLLY — Virginia asked for something to use to remove a sticky residue left on her refrigerator after adhesive-backed paper was removed. I have had excellent results svith men's regular ore-electric shave lotion. It is also good 1 for removing price labels that stores put on some products. - OPAL. DEAR POLLY - Virginia could put some lighter fluid on a soft cloth and rub off that sticky residue left when adhesive-backed paper was taken off her refrigerator. When removed wipe with damp cloth, dry and wax. — JUNE. DEAR POLLY - Use soft drink bottles that have no return value as rolling pins when baking. 1 am sure you all know they also make decorative candle holders, too. Let us all avoid throwaway pollution. — CLAIRE. DEAR POLLY — 1 have found a good use for the framework left from an old and broken swing set. Buy a large sheet of canvas or any other desired material that will withstand water (rain) and cover the framework to make a tent for the kids. - R.M. DEAR POLLY - 1 have a small hook <a cup hook will do; on the inside of my closet door and a paper clip hangs from the hook. When I purchase a new item of clothing for anyone in the family 1 immediately attach the sales slip to the paper clip. No more lost receipts either. They are always handy if I need to return a garment. Naturally after several wearings or a washing 1 cannot return the item so 1 throw away the receipts. - LINDA.

Party Meatballs The specialty of a hostess in Port Washington, L.I., N.Y. 2 pounds ground beef round 1 egg 1 medium onion, finely grated (pulp and juice) 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup chili sauce V 2 cup grape jelly 1 tablespoon lemon juice Thoroughly mix together beef, unbeaten egg, onion and salt. Ron into 1-inch balls — about 80. In a large skillet stir together the chili sauce, grape jelly and lemon juice; heat, stirring, until jelly dissolves. Add a single layer of meat balls and cook, stirring gently, until meat balls firm up — about 10 minutes. With a slotted spoon remove meat balls and add remaining meat balls, cooking as before. Return all meat balls to skillet and cook gently spooning off fat as it rises to the top, for 10 to 20 minutes.

FALL CURTAIN GOING UP ON ACT111 LADIES SPECIALTY SHOP «•» ff -»-; -ir •*»•» *•••• <••»• •«•» 4 OJou BY ANN D. ALLEN Math is the name of one of the games the newest you has to play. So many $ of income; this many $ for rent, that many for car payment, lot insurance, food, and so forth. There's a lot of talk about food prices, what the dollar will or won't buy. What'a often missing is a comparison with wages and other goods or services. Let the newest you consider that since 1947 wages have increased 208%, medical care 180% and all services 167%. Comparisons may be odious, as a famous author said, but isn't it only fair to look at food prices in relation to those figures? Meat, fish and poultry ore up 100%, fruits and vegetables 104%, while milk and dairy products posted an increase of only 06%. Now, if wages had gone up only as much as food prices, do you realize that the average worker would have to take a cut of 39% in his 1972 earnings? Or, looking at it another way, if food prices had kept pace with wages, the typical household would have spent $2,365 yearly for food instead o/ $1,311 in 1972. The newest you doesn't really need to be a math major to figure that FOOD is still a bargain, comparatively speaking and that milk still tops even that list.
