He cited the case of an over- Indulgent mother who was so afraid of her boy's crying that she hired a helper to sit with him through the nights. Dr. Sperling told the mother to let him cry. The mother said she would be evicted if she did that. Dr. Sperling gave her a certificate saying It was necessary. It.worked. Three years later the boy was sleeping normally. " Dr. Sperling also told of a woman whose overcarefulness of her 6-month-old baby disguised a feeling of hostility. She would lean over the crib to make sure he was breathing; would fuss wljh the bed clothes and awaken 1 the child, then take him out of his bed. The mother had to be made to realize her attitude was responsible, Dr. Sperling said.
