REFRESHING to slip off for a few days now and then to meet with the folks who read some of the things to write. It so happen? that every -week or so I am called to some city to make a talk or a series of them. Inasmuch as it is my habit to answer questions following an address, I am always learning about some new angles of human relationships, especially within the family. Recently it was in Kansas City, Kans., where I spoke four times in one day, and then four times more on the following day in Topeka--under the auspices of the Parent- council in both cities. As you know, Kansas City, Kans., is just across tie river from Kansas City, Mo., At our afternoon meeting Mrs. Mary Harmon Weeks was present, and in her presence I spoke with more thari usual feeling of humility. A venerable parent-educator, she is listed in "Who's Who in America." Always she has been an inspiration to all of us parent-teacher workers, and she looks no older now than she did when my wife and I met her first fifteen years ago. For years then, she had been carrying on a remarkable program in parent education in Kansas City, Mo., She trained many young women who are now carrying on. Her program was builded so that it would stand and grow. Some of those she trained were also at our meeting, including Mrs. Dorsey. "My girls" is what Mrs. Weeks affectionately 'calls them. I found the superintendent of schools, F. S. Schlagel, and his principals wholeheartedly back of the P. T. A., and that the public schools of Kansas City, Kans., had easily weathered the depression, having been cautious in the days of prosperity. And what capable leadership the parent-teacher associations have in that city! What I remember best of my day in Kansas City, was my dinner with a lovely family. Not the dinner, though it must have been superb, but the family at the dinner table--the quiet, companionable parents, and the three children ranging from 10 to 18 years of age. They talked freely, each in his turn, and the parents let me and these children carry on conversations. Not once were we interrupted by the parents--a very rare experience! These gracious parents were gocrj hosts to their children as well as to their guest. I wish all we parents might emulate them. If all my readers could have had experience during that exceptional dinner hour, they would have gained more practical suggestions on how to live well with their children than from reading my column for a year.
