PAGE SIX It's Surprising How Much Ifliey Can Do ""~' - • (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Although Albert Giordano, above. Is only three and Louis Grace, left,' but four, tin's- already exhibit miming, ability at self-help. Pupils 1,1 Ford hum University's child study control uroup, they are laussiit to liang lip their clothes, put on shoes and coat.s oy themselves,, spread blankcls lor their imps and so on. T Children Can Help Themselves j II:-"Pavenl.s x Give Them Chance do things for themselves than we think. We have a tendency, we Americans, to hinder rallier ttan help them to make the effort. Our weakness Is pity for the little child. And although lie needs our sympathy and understanding, we carry our protection to R really disastrous point, usually. . A child of three or four can dress WmseU. No. not if he has been made a baby doll and had his rlothes 'hung- on him dally without the slightest effort on Ills part. But if mother begins early (o encourage the boy and the little girl In pulling on their own slocks nnrl Betting into dresses and coats, It is not Jong until they are doing nil their dressing 'except, perhaps, tying shoestrings and buttoning shirts or sweaters. It takes a certain dexterity to do the latter. Achievement Before Four Iii one nursery school I visited, the children ranged from two to four. Every one of them took off their shoes at nap time, and put them on a half hour later. Overshoes, always a task, were included In this self help. One little tyke, of perhaps three, had trouble, so I watched another child play the heavy father and tug the contrary rubbers on his small friend's feet. The motlier who trains her children to spread their beds as early as four may be regarded as heartless, yet this Is exactly what progressive schools are trying to train for today. It may not be bed making, but I saw some 'cot. making, much the. same thing. The children get their own covers out of the closet, carry them over to their assigned couches, and spread them out as evenly as possible. Then, with their-shoes off, theq slip under the blanket for their naps. Afterwards! of couse, It is harder to fold- the cover than to open it.'yct every The modern school, you see. Is floing what almost any mother could do if she thought It wortli while. The trouble Is that mothers tatt too much for granted and presuppose tlmt little folk have no ability. Too bad that we have so little faith In our children. We carry them around on our hands, often until they are adult, when thcv have lost the habit of hustle and are completely dependent on others for their personal comfort. Neiireslhciiics Coddtcil Nothing sets up a child hi his own estimation like accomplishment of dlnicult Insks, When he. or she. Is very little the most trivial things lake on a magic glow, It be does them himself. Wiping n spoon becomes a mutter of prUlc and excitement; brushing one's own teeth is something to talk about all day. i Tills Is Hie time, in fisherman's | parlance, to catch them, when (hey are enjoying their own victories. Many adult neuresthenles, faced with effort and making a menial hazard of work,, arc drawn from the ranks of over-coddled children. j The mother who wishes to plant the seeds of Industry and a liking for the MUSTS of life, will find her own future, and her children's future,' happier and belter coordinated, if she' starts quite early to encourage her little ones to help themselves.
