BY iwra; CATTON' M-.'A Service .Stall itorn-sprmclrni TORONTO. Nov. 6.—The problem or training- th e Dloiinp quintuplet' ( lias been exactly like the problem met in any home whore there is a group of small children to bring up Five little girls ,ij c fiw little <;»•!<, even if they are the most famous ones on earth. And when experts ir child training from St. Cieorge 1 ; School for Child Study, In Toronto were called in to ailvisc on tlx training of the Dionues. they simply adapted the principles that have been proven successful ii-itli other children. Tliey met some problems, o! course, and made some discoveries Among the problems: What do you do when n smal' quintuplet insists on standing uj at the foot of her bed when sin ought to be lying down and sleep ing? What happens when five quints duly ushered into the dining room indulge in a wild free-for-all dn to the fact that all five or then wniit to sit In t!i<? same chair? Suppose a quint with a mind o her own decides that she woul' rather eat her custard than he I spinnch. when spinach is what slv Yeally needs; what then? < Need Other Children Among the discoveries: Tirol the quints can feed Uvsm selves quite capably, but that the do it in a manner thnt would pu Emily Post right under the table T.l'nt a miintttgjlGl who down' want to go to sleep can devise strat agems cunning beyond her years That five youngsters of exitctl- the same age who B row up together mingling with no other children are somewhat handicapped, am that the quintuplets need lo mi: with older and younger childrcj whose backgrounds, bringing up and so on, are different than thei own. '.$ij.ti( '•;;.::»j As soon as the <Jmnts outgrew th need ;(op;^xtraprrtina'fy- precaution madc.mecessarjvby their promatiir birth, the need for exiwrt advice a to their training became apparent This advise was sought arid obtain ed from the University of Toronto' St. George's School for child Studv The results are described in "; paper by ihe school's director. Di ' W. K. Blafe and his co-workers D. A. Millichamp and A. L. Harris Atlidule of Serenity Called into consultation when tlr quints were about a year old. Di Blatz suggested that their dail' routine be based on these princi plc-s: A concept of discipline which i' educational rather than punitive Development of responsibility tr expecting children to look afte their own needs as tar as possible Arrangement of physical sur roundings so as to stimulate tli r quints' sense of initiative and ad venture. An attitude of serenity on tin part of (he adults associated will the quints, accompanied by an ariul example of rf'easurablc industry The children's sleeping routim was the first (o come up for con- sideratlon. They had been geltinr about 16 hours' of sleep daily—ar hour and a half in the mornins two hours or more in the ntter- noon. nnd approximately 12 hour.' ut night. At the age of 2 tin morning sleep was eliminated, anr' the afternoon sleep was gradualh reduced from two hours to abou'i an hour and a half. Their sleeping habits have always been remarkably regular, and it \vas not until the fall of 1036 that any problems arose. Then the quints apparently decided that the first houi after bedtime offered an unusually attractive chance for a little wholehearted romping, nnd proceeded tc act on that decision. Finally Toppled Over Maybe they were being put to bed too early? Bedtime -,vas postponed from 6:30 until 7: but this meant nothing to the quints. Put them tc bed and they wouldn't even lie down; instead they would stand at the foot, of the bed. Jabbcrine and gesturing at a great rate. One •youngster once remained there until she fell asleep standing up and toppled over on the bidding. There was nothing to do bill put the quints in horizontal positions by force: which was all very well, except that as soon as a nurse left one duly stictchcd-out sister to attend lo another, the first one .should bob up as blithely as ever. ' The only way out of this wns to show the quints that the adults had just a little more Cndiiran,-r than they had. 1 took a lot ol trouble, but it finally worked— after weary nlchls in which one child might have to be put back- to bed 20 or 30 times. The quints finally got the idea. Took a Sleeping Jacket It really took n trick sleeping jacket to make the victory lasting. This was a species of liv;Vt quilt with attached ariutetf, which was fastened down at. Ihe four corners In such a way that tbe quint ACCJUirirm- Muscular Co-ordination CHEESE IS PAGE THREE Truck Hailed By Dairy Farmers' Barrage V\ / T»? * n'V y •r;yr"''""'<i-3 y n- «"wr^ — ..•—— — -— ^ Cream Cheese: Is Old Smootliy In 1) (; ;i 1 i n g Willi Food Costs 1!V MttS.
