COURIER NEWS PA(5E -ri »• . n * Nagging Parents Often The Mature Parent: Pos f Bl f ck to CWM (Here's the ninth of 10 articles by th« executive director of The Children's Village, Tamed training com- rimrilty for undisciplined and unadjusted boys, which give a perspective on relationship new be- the normal child and his noraR parent.) By HAROLD F. STRONG Written for NEA Service An apparently harmless habit, continual "nagging" of children, can erode and destroy their respect and affection for parents. Boys of the Village voted "nag- ging" the most objectionable trait point. In deluding of parents. There Is no ourselves. A "nagging" father or mother is hard to live with. He is hard to live with because he Is refusing to shoulder an adult responsibility. Unpleasant as It is to face, a "nagging" parent is one who places the responsibility of seeing his orders obeyed upon his child, instead of assuming the. obligation himself. That is why children resent It. They know we have passed them the buck. It Is unfair. Parents whose youngsters criticize them for this habit sometimes find it helpful to take their children into their confidence. Usually, they will readily recognize our right to reject the humiliating role of the "nag- eer." If we defend our position as we should, we will generally find them pretty co-operative In working out a new understanding of our obligation to see tiiat orders are obeyed. "Nagging" refuses children the •ecurity of knowing we mean what we say. Our approval Is children's greatest satisfaction. "Nagging" Is harmful it sustains constant conflict and disapproval between us and our youngsters. We have no right to deprive them of our approval' because we ourselves through fear, disinterest or apathy, refuse to take responsibility.
