CRANE Case X-328: Jenny L., age 10, is a bright girl but somewhat frustrated. 1 "Dr. Crane, she needs something to do," her mother explained. "For she is very bright and gets her school work finished early. "Now she wishes she had a job so she could earn some money. And I feel it would be good for her. "But what type of work can I give her? We have a maid so there isn't too much housework available." Children need money. And they should obtain it by work, instead of by the inefficient "allowance" plan. For life makes no allowances for anybody, so we never should encourage youngsters to · expect "something for nothing," which is what the allowance inevitably means. The "allowance" plan is just a dole: And the dole psychology " .then develops. Your - children soon will gripe and argue with "you because their allowance .isn't as large as that of some other kid down the block. * * * * , ', '.SO PAY children for work ' Then they no longer will criti ' cize you about spending money For their income thereafter de- When they could typewrite at --MRS.'E.

Arid it is a splendid idea to 'ncourage ,children to memorize gems of poetry or famous quotations from literary masers of the. past. It' enriches their minds. And t will prove a the soul vhen they can quote such beau- iful thoughts as Lincoln's hope that his biographers would, say of him that he planted roses where thistles grew before. At the bottom of about 200 pages in my college textbook, "Psychology Applied," I thus included great quotations from the past. So pay your, child for each choice quotation he memorizes. The money will help Jenny now but the cultural benefits will pay dividends all through college and her later life.
