OhiI Saaday Triaaaa: Part 7 Pafe 8 Fab. 23, 1947 Reward Child, but Don't Try to Bribe Him By Gladys Huntington Bevans ICopjrtfht: 1947: Bj Nrws Syndicate Co., Inc. ) "I was Irrought up under a y tern of rewards and punishments. It was practical, I guess, but I don't think I'll use it when my baby is rider. How good do you think a re ward system is? " This represents a certain group of plications that come to me, which I'll try 10 answer rather fully today Cold Mars or candy, ice crenm or a trip to the zoo. money or the rnotir or a bicycle rewards for r'od behavior may take various otnis and may accomplish an im mediate result. I could be very simple and quite weepine in my answer, and say that children should never receive . either rewards or punishments, but should do things because they know they're right or because they are told to do them, Tn the first place, small children Ami I rrcocnle the abstractions of ti?M and wrong. And even If they chtL" I doubt whether it would be feib!e to appeal always to their moral sense. Even with older ehil-cimn we don't use those tactics. ?rna!I children do the things they ahmild or shouldn't largely because eif either the approbation or disapproval of their elders, or because they discover other pleasant or unpleasant results of their behavior by actual experience. Children can be trained to do things without material rewards or definite punishment. Gently, seriously, tactfully, firmly, jovially, playfully, and with appeals to reason. LttJe children can be happily and effectually guided in the way they should go. Hranterj that all this is true, we still can't completely dismiss rewards and punishments. First be-rause there are exceptions to every rule, and second, because there are those natural causes and effects always operating which automatically constitute a sort of reward and punishment. Thru them a child lfarns, and sometimes we have to make use of these logical connections because they serve to "point a moral and adorn a tale." For example: " If you want help with your geometry, Tom, I can give it to you Jot before dinner," says a father tn-Hie morning; "but I'm going out right after." But Tom slays out playing- with the boys till dark, and It's not till after he's eaten that he brines out his homework. Too late - and a reminder from his father is In order. A dozen examples of what I mean by "cause and effect" will come to your mind, I'm sure. Hut as to a system made up of f iyiM' a child's desirable behavior with things or promises, or dealing vith the undesirable by using threats or punishments that is another story and one which leads to no eventual good. Eeing a human being and a mother, I understand what it is to be tempted when you're worn out, rushed to death, or feel the eyes of critical relatives upon you to bribe the children to do the thing that's polite or dutiful or convenient fori j nu. Such bribery often does solve th problem of the moment and solve it quickly, too. But as a system, it gets down to nothing basic. Let us see bow bribery sometimes comes about : Your small boy abhors medicine and always makes a terrific fuss over taking It. This fuss happens each time, however, because someone always promises a treat If he'll kw allow it. Or jour small daughter shows apprehension about your going out in the evening, and you get ready, all 011 edge, and then argue and coax, and only get away by promising her m new baby doll for the next day. This sort of thing, done often enough, lejirls the children to ex-pet t something tangible for doing the ordinary everyday things they should do. It means the downfall ff your authority too if you do it consistently. Patterns by Clotilde 2210 SIZES 12 - 46 i ??

Did you " do yourself proud " the day of the luncheon, outshining your best beloved enemy by making turnip lilies and dogwood, rutabaga jonquils, butter sunflowers, or red and yellow onion mums, in place of the ubiquitous radish roses nestled in the ever present sprig of parsley? Or was it one of those feverish days when everything piled in on you, and you just had to think of some quick tricks with cans and frozen things from emergency shelf and refrigerator, while fixing baby's formula? Terhaps you live where you could hop in the car and race to your favorite food shop to gather the makings or the made even to the packaged fresh flowers and candles. I understand those packaged flowers are going to be right there with the groceries as soon fls they can devise an entirely satisfactory package. More likely you are one of those very, very efficient persons who shine In an emergency and nort chalantly whip up a French omelet, of a souffle, to the tune of "Little Buttercup," " Comin' Thru the Rye," or some favorite old college air liKe " upiaee, upiaa," or "jingle Bells." Once on a time there really were songs and recitations like that written specially to be used with sewing and cooking lesson cards. It says so on a cupping irom trie Bos ton Cooking School magazine in serted in an old cook book of my very modest collection.

This is a great day for writing or handling papers, particularly those of a lasting or serious nature.

Until Still, don't think that I'm making! vvalrr-tisht statements about rewards. There are times when we hold up a pleasant thing before the mind's eye of a child to help him over a hard spot: perhaps a dreaded trip to the dentist, a painful experience at the doctor's, a trying convalescence, or confinement to the house or to his bed. Then a present or a picnic or a puppy promised to hint may divert his mind, and are devices which are no more than kind and human and understanding. This is not in the class with brirwrv.

Yet her speech w-as monotonous and hesi tant, full of aahhs; and there were signs of inattention and boredom among the women who had come to hear. She came to my mind when I saw the new book, "Your Voice and Your Speech," by Beatrice Defosses, and recalled the oft repeated criticism of the American voice, especially the American woman's voice. If you belong to this club or that group, are a member of this board or that committee as what woman Isn't these days you must sometimes stand on your feet and talk.
