OUR CHILDREN If Child Is Not Allowed to Act For Himself, Trouble Comes By ANGELO PATRI "How can I get my child to mind me? If I could get him to mind me we would get on all right." - That is one of the most fre quent notes we receive. Reading along we find that this child who does not mind is in his teens, fifteen, nineteen, sometimes twenty- And his mother and father are still asking that he do what he is told, not what he would do if left to his intelligence. "But that's just the point. He isn't intelligent. He does the stupidest things. How can we let him think for himself and act on it when he doesn't think?" That's true. But how can he think intelligently if he is not allowed to think? The whole trouble lies in the early training. If a child is always expected to "mind" and never allowed, much less expect ed, to think and act for himself, he arrives at adolescence when his feelings of maturity beset him, withou' the ability to -use those feelings or control them. Then his parents, frightened by his ignor ance and weakness, try to strengthen him by ordering him about. And that will not work. A teen-age child has matured in certain directions. He feels urged to do and to be, to shine and be applauded with the rest of the bright young people. Those feelings are his even when he has not been trained to use them and he follows them and gets into trouble. When this happens giving him stern orders and issuing punish ment decrees will not help. The mistake has been made- Now the best we can do is to win the child's co-operation wherever possible. Stop giving orders and stop acting as if the child was stal in arms. Begin asking his opinions, consulting his tastes, deferring to his opinions. Begin acting toward The Problem With Care Fall and we live from skirt to blouse oil types of skirts, plain colors and plaids.

The change will be too sudden for his belief. But persevere. In time he will accept the new standard and by careful management on your part he will begin to fit into the family scheme-Don't ask too much. Keep in mind that this once, your baby is now a person of will, purpose and Dlan in his own rieht. He has precisely as' much of those characteristics as you had at his age and have now at your own. You would resent being told when and what and how to act at every turn of your day. He does, too, being human just as you are. And don't be shy on your side when co-operation is needed- You will find that the teen-age chil dren will help you gladly when they would have rebelled heartily against "minding." The Colonel Writes A Kitchen Code Army conciseness -enned a code of kitchen standards that might be a target for every house wile's aim when Col. Thomas F. Watlington, artillery officer, wrote a thank-you note-to Campa Adair, Ore., concerning the excellent mess hall cuisine he had enjoyed during recent battalion firing tests there.
