THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 1050 WLYTHEVTLLE (AnK.) COURIER The Mature He'd Be Bad for Child By HAROLD F. STRONG Written tor NBA Service You are a bad parent if you never make mistakes. v It is an unfortunate child who has to. live with perfection. It's an unfortunate parent who cannot ad- t ,his Imperfections, i have known many parents atid many children. I have never known A parent who "lost face" with tils child by admitting his fallings. I have known a good many who lost It irretrievably by pretending to virtues they did not possess. My personal conviction is that people who cannot admit their faults are people who are not doing much about correcting them. If we have succeeded in persuading our young children that \ve ire paragons who never feel anger or hurt or discouragement, we will lose them in adolescence when they find out we are nothing of the kind. Our struggles toward perfection are what' Barn our ^children's respect and lov.e—not trie perfection Itself. If mothers and fathers understood how reassuring it Is to a child to know that they have to fight as he docs to overcome self-pity and resentment. Indignation and hurt they would not try to pretend those battles are not going on. Our connnests the evidence they need to prove they, too. can overcome their problems. They are the most vital incentives we Sflp give them. 1 ^Rphen we pretend to be superior to normal human failings, we close R door between our children and ourselv&s. For they have not learned to pretend. And we indulge our scU- nghteousness at the cost of their despair, at ever being able to live vtp to such htgh-mlndcdness. It is the miracle of children's love that they cherish us not because we are perfect-—but in spite of our Imperfections. If you have fallen short of the "Ideal'', you think you should represent to your child, take comfort. You may be about to win your youngster for a friend.
