Many parents who permit their children to attend the movies Indiscriminately and to excess are apt to feel that because there is nothing shocking or bad in a certain pic ture the child may ag well be allow ed to go. It is a negative, not a constructive attitude. There are hundreds ot harmless pictures of this kind shown everywhere all the time, and while there Is no valid reason for the child's seeing them, except the one that he wants to, there are several excellent ones why he should not. For one thing, if he goes in the afternoon he loses time out of doors, although, of course, in bad weather this reason does not hold. Pictures are, furthermore, undoubtedly a strain on the eyes, and while in moderation they will do no great harm, it would be better If for the sake of his eyesight, the strain were applied or'v for pictures really worth while. '-. ii\\^ It is a i~et that the nerve stimulation of the motion picture, however may be, sometimes affects the sleep of children. Some suffer from insomnia, some from nightmares. , These are simply facts of health, but are certainly worthy of consideration when the question of too- frequent moving pictures arises, as it is likely to in any household. It seems so much easier to give the desired permission than to withhold it, and the continuous struggle .wears clown the parents' resistance. There are pictures which no child Jhould miss and to see which exceptions to rules of hygiene may well be made. But the forming of the too persistent movie habit, which some mothers are unconsciously allowing by a non-constructive attitude, is good for neither the child's health nor taste. RABE-MANIFOLD.
