LOCUST AT FIRST Worried About Tot's Reaction to New Baby Susan's Window shopping Worship Turns to Contempt B.v MYRTLE MEYER ELDRED Sometimes, in our fear of a situation, we act in a way to bring that situation about. A mother knowing that she must work to prevent her older child being jealous of the baby, may behave in a completely unnatural way and thus fill the older child with confusion and a sense of insecurity. Mrs. H. G. writes, "I have benefitted so much from your column that 1 am anxious to add a bit of my own experiences to it. T have a little girl, three and one- half years old, to whom I am extrr-mely devoted. K::cept f o r occasional S a t u r d a y nights out, when we- have left her with a capable naliy sittei, my child never has been out of my siÂ«ht "I also have a baby of four months. When I became pregnant with the second I spent the entire nine months wondcrine; how the older would react to her. How would I divide my time between the two children? I was quite nervous abuut coming home from the hospital with this new addition. * * + * "ONCE I CAME home I was so afraid of fondling the baby in front of her and extended myself to the point of giving in to her every whim. "The result was that I had a nagging, annoying child, something she had not been before, I realized, suddenly, the foolishness of teeling guilty over having given my child a little sister. "As soon as J began to display affection for the baby, my older girl did likewise. She also obviously craved discipline, which I had practically eliminated after her sister was born. * W Â· Â· "SHE NOW attends nursery school and aids me in the simple tasks which have to be done for the haby. "She also is independent and understanding. She enjoys the status of 'big girl' now. I am proud of her and ashamed of myself for my lack of confidence. I realize now that the three years of affection given her by her father and me. were not forgotten as a result of a new baby in the family. Rather it was my own insecurity which turned a beautiful situation into an unhappy one." HOW KOKTUXATE that you came to your senses, ft is valuable for an oldei child to see that you love the baby, for then she can better understand and e.\pn-ss the love she feels. She knows, too. that you treated her the same way. As for discipline--if you don't know what the child should and should not do, how. shall she know? Children must hnve guidance and discipline; they are unhappy at the necessity to make all their own decisions. They want the parent to lay down the limits. You've proved that none too soon. * Â» * * IF YOU WOULD like to have our 10-cent booklet "Obedience and Discipline" send 10 cents and a stamped, self-addressed envelope with your request to Myrtle JMeyer Eldred in care of this newspaper.

MAYFIELD: We have been married about five years and I worship my wife. She is more attractive t h a n average, is devoutly religious, a good cook and housekeeper -- but she -has a couple of traits that are causing me to build up contempt for her. I don't know of any other way of putting it. For one thing she is one of the greediest people I've ever known, and for another she has a temper that makes a blockbuster look like a firecracker, and she is the world's worst nagger. Since we hnvo been married I have stopped attending till' organizations I used to belong to, linve quit playing tfnlf, have given up my hubbies, and eventually my friends, simply Iwanse it was easier than listening tu her tantrums. She does like fishing but I've loft intere?t in that because this was just another way for her to tighten her hold on another of her possessions (me): How can I get the point across to her that I'm not another statistic, hut just want to be a happy, contented married man? --JUST WANT 50-50 DEAR JUST WANT: You've been amenable to her demands too long, I'm afraid. In fact, you've knuckled under so long it's going to be difficult for you to change. But change you MUST. Get back Into those organizations, get back out there on the golf course, see your old friends aga'n. When she, yells and screams walk out on her. She can't fitrht without someone to fight with, yon know. Warn her that the worm is turning -- ard let it turn, brother. Put up with her as best you can, but DON'T GIVE IN. I'll guarantee you she'll respect you more in the end. And you'll have more self-respect, too.--M.M. * * Â· * DEAR MRS. MAYFIELD: He says he's robbing the cradle.
