PAGE TWO BT.ynravn.LE <ARK.> COURIER NEWS The Mature WEDNESDAY, JUNE tt, 19W (Htre'i the third of 10 artlcln by the executive director of The Children's YIHacr. famed training: community tor undisciplined and unadjusted boys, which give a new perspective on relationship« between the normal child and his normal parent.) By HAROLD V. STRONG Wrttlen for NKA Service The desire of parents to see their children excel is a natrual one But when it fs linked to a drive to make up (or our own failures through the success of our children, it can destroy their chances for self-fulfillment. A handsome boy who had been expelled from Isvo schools for habitual lying played right field on our baseball team. The* day his father paid an unexpected visit to see him play, he lost the game. I knew why when we met him coming off the field and his father ssked: "Why did you wrlle me you were pitching this game, instead of playing right field?" Far years this boy had lived in dally dread or disappointing his father's ambitions to have him outshine others. The father v/ns in his 40's. and had never recovered from the loss of a prosperous business. The life goals he had accepted as a young man In the booming 20's were as valid to him as they had ever been. Marriage, fatherhood and business reverses had left him where they found him. When I said to him, "We ran play only one game at a time and we can't all pitch It," his quick answer was: "When I was 29, 1 was making $8000 » year." The only standards we can safely demand of our youngsters are moral ones. If we place these above all other values of achievement, they will accept them. And if our village boy's father had understood this, our young rlpM fielder would never have felt the.need to hide the fact ho was not the pitcher. Our Village lad learned to lell the truth when we finally' convinced him that we thought thai a good right fielder was a more successful human being than » poor pitcher. Today he's supporting his father with a thriving garage business. The attitude our children take toward academic or social success and failure — not the success or failure itself—should be our prime concern. Tomorrow: We're overrating youth and underrating maturity. Movie Players Study for Degree LOS ANGELKS, June 21.
