A .child who has never worked for his money, cannot be expected to appreciate a dime us can the youngster who has labored throughout i childhood. "We even measure distance roughly according to our stride. Thus, a child thinks a mile is much longer than does an adult. Similarly, we measure worth or value in terms of the. work involved in procuring the object .-or 'coin. To a.child who has been properly educated-regarding money, a coin is a 'symbol- of minted human energy. He may regard 50 cents as a whole day's work, including mowing lawn, carrying out • ashes or running errands of various types. . children. Miriam is doing the very same thing. For it is so novel and thrilling to her to have people admire something which she owns, that she gratefully, hands'over the object as a gift. She needs to be socialized and to work for money.
