MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 25 · 1936 SEVEJV CIETY f '\ Doctor Advises Pa rents on How Train Children Bj GARKV C. MEYERS, iH. D. Child Training Authority These three questions have come co aie: i 1 My 3 year old boy loves to play "with matches and light fires. Is it better lo forbid him to touch matches at all, or to let him burn the trash and light the gas burner when necessary, under my supervision? Answer: Never let him touch matches, even under supervision, until he is 6 or 7 years of age. Treat him, when he touches matcnes, as you would if he played in fire--give him instant pain, a good spank with your bare hand on his bare fat thighs--make it hurt; allow no exceptions. Keep matches out of his reach as far as possibe. Our first two children we treated so. They never gave us a single problem -with matches. The youngest we allowed to use machcs early, under our supervision. That was wrong. He lit a fire at the age of 5 in the basement. It cost him a great deal, and us, to set him right. Make It Unpleasant. To the parent with a long, hard problem with matches, it might be well to take the offending child out to an open field and make him strike matches for a continuous hour or more--so the act thereafter would be unpleasant to him. 2. How is the best way to deal with the child of 3 years who runs away? We find him as far as two blocks away from home. I cannot always stay with him when he plays. Answer:' No use to punish the child after he 3s found. The job is to make painful his running away. Budget your time; let everything else go until the matter is settled. Always be on hand when he is out until he is safe without watching. It may take two weeks; probably much less. Set Boundary Line. Make clear to him the tr»e, pole or mark on sidewalk beyond which he must not go. Be near him the next time he is near that boundary, and always thereafter until his learning is complete. Always let him choose; never pull him back or yell at him. But the moment he is about to cross give him a good, sound spanking right then and there. Always do likewise thereafter. You **_will be surprised at how quickly he ml will learn. rn'i. My 8 year old girl takes a violent dislike to certain of her clothes. I cannot afford to throw them away and buy more. Answer: Compromise some, even at great sacrifice. Hereafter when you purchase clothes for her, let her help to select them. All your letters sent to ms in care of this paper arc welcomed. Please inclose a self-addressed envelope with a 3 cent stamp on it. H E L P I N G T H E H O M E M A K E R By MRS.
