Tile first life insurance policy on record \vas issued In England in 1S83. The woman who wants her grown* children to be proud of her ought to neglect 'em n little. Any older woman who doesn't believe that should listen to the conversation of young married women. When they start to brag about their parents, the young women who are the most admiring of their mothers .are the ones whose mothers i\re so busy lending their own lives they don't have much time for their children. The doting mothers and grandmothers who live for, nnd through, their children and grandchildren, who are always at their beck and call, und who can't do enough for them, don't come in for a lot of praise. Their grown children take them for grunted. "Mother is going to keep the children while we take our vacation They'll probably ' be comnletels spoiled by the tiinc we set back, of course." a young womnn will say complacently. There's no prkle there - and very little gratitude'. BUSY MOTHERS REGARDED DIFFERENTLY But when a daughter talks about i mother who hasn't time to be an unpaid baby-sitter, who is enjoying tfe on her own, there's all the rtit- erence in the world. She'll tell about nil her mother's activities, her busy life, with real >ride in her voice and real admira- ,ion for her not as a "grandma" but as a woman. There's a reason, of course, \vhy grown daughters take more pride self-sufficient parents than in parents who tend to live through heir children and grandchildren. The self-sufficient ones aren't a burden to Ilieir children. The ones who give the most, once their chil- are grown, are actually the ones who are the most dependent, whose children always feel responsible for their happiness. So a good rule for mothers would be: Make your children your main interest In life when they are children. But start neglecting them a little when they are grown.
