DON'T FIND FAULT WITH YOUR CHILDREN Don't find fault with your son or daughter, even if by doing so you put yourself on the side of the in-law, : Don't offer .advice. Don't treat y.our child as though he or she is .still a child. Remember he is a grown-up, and a superior one. at tthat, to the ptrson who has married him. Don't insist on the couple going around and visiting all your friends Feed the brutes—well. Don't pry into their personal affairs. Accept what they want to tel! and don't- ask more. Especially don't try to find out how much they spent for this and for that Don't save up all your troubles and hardships and make them listen. Be cheerful and gay, and put your worrying and self-pity aside. BUT DON'T BLAME' THIS COLUMN Don't throw cold water on their pet schemes and plans. Even if you think they are making some big mistakes, let them find it out for themselves. You don't want to be in a position to be able to say, "I. tqld you so." Let them leave when they feel they mast, so that they don't'dread "getting away" the whole time they are with you. If you follow tills pattern you won't have to complain that your married children never come home. P£.: Don't blame this column if they move in on you. 4-H Club News Notes Elect Officers.
