ran SECTIONS DAILY HERALD SUNDAY, MARCH 9, 2008 D3 Mr. Smith: Donations made in memory of Sept. 11 victim Continued from Rige 7 Haberman, a woman from West Bend, Wis., and Chicago, who died in the Sept. 11,2001, terrorist attacks. Grosscup learned of Haberman's story after someone donated a dog in her honor to the Search Dog Foundation. "I looked her up online, and started reading a lot about Andrea and eventually contacted her family," Grosscup said. "Her father has written just some beautiful words about his love for his daughter. So we decided that that's what we would do to keep her alive in everyone's hearts and memories." Art lovers who want to see a preview of Mr. Smith's work can check out his painting, "Bone Crazy," now hanging on the wall in veterinarian Ronald Kipnis' office at Lombard Animal Clinic, 603 Main St. Kipnis saved Mr. Smith's life last fall when he was ill with kidney failure from a bacterial infection, and Grosscup donated the dog's first painting to show their gratitude. Mr. Smith has created a total of four paintings, and Grosscup said creating more should be a breeze if art aficionados want one of their own. "I just have to bribe him with food," she said. MARCELLE BRIG HT/ During a boring winter day, Luann Grosscup decided to help her 6-year-old beagle, Mr. Smith, start painting in the bathtub. One of his works now hangs at a veterinarian's office in Lombard. DaUyHerald How to reach us All numbers are area code 630 unless indicated.

Potts: Parents need to stand back Continued from Plage 1 things differently, too. More often than not, it really doesn't matter all that much how we learn or how we do it, just that we do learn to do it. Now, I'm not suggesting that we let our kids figure everything out for themselves. I'm not in favor of experiential learning, for example, when it comes to a pre-schooler and speeding cars. Nor do I believe that any way of doing something is just as good as any other way. There is a safe way to drive a car and I expect my teens to drive that way. Offering assistance or advice is certainly part of being a parent. There will be times, too, when we need to impose that assistance or advice in the best interests of our children and safety. There are plenty of times, however, when our children do need to learn or do things their way, even if the way they learn and what they do doesn't fit for us. It may not be the easiest, fastest, most efficient or best way from our perspective, but it is their way nonetheless. Of course, when we do let our kids do it their way, we pay a price. We have to sit with the worry, anxiety, fear and pain we parents experience when we see our children struggle. Because we believe that if we made them do it our way, we could protect them from this struggle, we can even wind up feeling a bit guilty. This parenting stuff is not easy. Anyway, both my youngest children came away from their first-time ski experience excited and ready to go again. I suspect part of this is because they did get the chance to do it their way. They were ready to learn more because their way of * learning was respected. Maybe they didn't do it Dad's way, but they did do it. • Rev.
