His last had its vivid moments and I :an hardly believe any man is above Infidelity. •At'an early age i. married a man if dubious morals, who flaunted hisi ndiscretions and caused me to vithdraw, more and more, into my- elf, before we-divorced, leaving me vith a .lovely daugj ter, now 12. Meanwhile I sensed .that, my father jhadn't been really the paragon I'd 'been taught to believe, and I" re^ called veiled hints that grandfather has been quite a boy in'his prime.. I was reared-by a devout and gentle' mother, and ,sav '.my - father through her eyes as the .ultimate in virtue and wisdom. He was the 'dis- clplmarinn, but not too disagreeably i so. I always rend a great deal and most of the novels dealt in romantic love that ended' in marriage"and happiness ever' after.. Such was my preparation for matrimony. Fears Her Phobia.

Now if Kirk is'an hour.late coming home to, dinner, I am deeply depressed the whole evening; and his slightest'' glance .at another woman disturbs'me almost as much.

But now it's peopled with traitors and nightmare events. You were a solitary child of sorts, much .given to reading and identifying yourself .with the heroine; and you were rerTed-. by a gentle devout nothcr who clung to an ivory-tower idealist's view, because she, too. feared reality—enough, at leait that she didn't care to face it unmasked. In consequence, you bhilt on n "romantic" concept' of security. To you, a "woman's life" meant being worshipfully loved and protected by a princely fellow who lived with no other thought than to cherish you. Your first marriage knocked this concept galley-west and you've been suffering the sensations of n drown; man ever since. Fears Give Measure Of Her Leaner-Bias THE TROUBLE is: 1. You can hardly conceive of'standing on your own feet in society, -carrying stresses with adult competence. Your brief experience In this, as a divorcee, 'plainly equates "nightmare"- from your view.

Your lifc-hntiit of introspective mnglnlng, inculcated by your ivory tower rearing, amounts to '.'smoke'in the eye" in first-hand relationship to a man you''supposedly love—i. e., the man. 'you'd' like to trust "with your Jife," which is to say, with total care°and .concern'/for-you; On the one hand, • you lack the realistic early conditioning to see his character-traits spelt out iv his behavior; and, on the other hand, you aren't psychologically prepared to let him be human, as it were.

Essentially your panic has to'do with infantile dependency — claims you're afraid won't be honored in full by Kirk.

'•- • • • Teaching Grows Harder It is'more difficult to teach nowadays than it was a generation ajo, for our kindergartens arc so full of "only" children. When people used to have-larger families, their youngsters were taught social cooperation at home, for,, they had to learn how'-to get along'with their brothers and sisters with /a reasonable degree of success. But .now they may seldom have contacted other.. youngsters until ;hey enter kindergarten. The teach- ers'are-therefore.'compelled to' assume a greater share of the burden of socializing modern youngsters., ' If you .thinK It is easy to conduct a kindergarten with 35 children, you are sadly mistaken. A . mother of three- children is usually worn out by the end of the day.' 1 Multiply, her problems by 10, obtain some idea .of• the teacher's nerve-wracking task. leathers Need Humor We psychologists don't wish to give the impression that all teachers are perfect, however, in their knowledge, of child psychology. For some are good teachers and some are poor teachers. Others may lack a 'sense of hurcor so they'make mountains out ol molehills. v For example, putting :ewdabs of water color paint-on the 'ace of Sandra's classmate, was not a heinous crime. .' True, it must not be Ignored, for that wquld invite repetition of the naughty deed. But the punishment should not be comparable to a . public execution nor should a child be'openly shamed and humiliated, until she feels she has.the mark of Cain on her forehead. When punishment'is administered, good teachers try' to make the affair a private one.
