Often, in such sentences, children are able to touch close to the heart of a person's personality. To mother, Aunt June may be a colossaly ugly person physically, but the child doesn't see this. He notices that she's a happy person. "I like her," children observe. "She reads good stories." Or: "I don't like her, she hugs me to much." Children are acute in their observations because they are not hamstrung by learned adult judge- ments. If we feel warm toward certain people, this feeling can take over our behavior so that those people may forget an infirmity or even something about us that's ugly. Take an imaginary example. A friend arrives for a chat in the middle of the breakfast dishes. Is the reaction one of horror at th(} housedress you are wearing and the dirty apron, or do you slap coffee down on the table and settle in Ruth MUleti Courage Needed for Remark "You never do antyhing right." These are crushing words that make the person they are aimed at feel like a failure. It doesn't seem p o s s i b le , such crippling w o rds could be spoken by a parent to his own child. And yet they some' times are. Here is a letter from a 16-yeaT- old girl who says; "I feel I have a serious problem, I have a good mother, but I can't seem to do anything right when she i£ around. "If I try to help her with the housework, I seem always to do something wrong. When I am alone I can go ahead with the work without any trouble at all. "If ,1 ask to bake a cake and mother says I can and someone in the family finds fault with it, mother says: 'Well, if she hadn't insisted on baking it I could have made a good cake.' "When I go ahead on my own and try to do something, mother is never satisfied with What I've 'done and often says, "You never do anything right." What can I do " You might try telling your mother exactly what you have told me— and see if you can't make her understand just what she is doing. She may not be aware of how often she finds fault and how often she makes you feel like a failure, Butif you can't make her understand, you'll have to solve the problem by telling yourself, "Mother doesn't want to belittle and discourage me. It's just her way. So I mustn't let her criticism hurt me or make me give up and quit trying." If you can do just that much for yourself— you will be all right. If lawn or porch furnishings need a coat of paint, clean them first, then paint. Use outdoor paint that will resist moisture and sunlight. If ammonia is used for rug cleaning, the fibers will be damaged and the dye will run seriously. for a chat? The result of the first action wiU be n somewhat offended friend, who just may notice the dirty apron and'the undone dishes. The result of the second is probably that she won't notice either, but only that you are glad to see her and are hospitable. Sometimes we ail care about the wrong things entirely. A truly warm welcome that comes from an honest feeling can conceal a pimple from the public view more quickly than cosmetics.
