, J»H. 17, m* 3 (SON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE )ad Absent, [Mother Gets [New Problems Iowa City--When the father of [the family is away from home in I war service, the mother mus1 I train herself to face daily prob- I lems without worry, anxiety, or I anger and she really must make I a business of understanding the children. This advice is given by Dr Ralph .H. .Ojemann of the child welfare research station at thi University of Iowa and it appliei to any sort of family. i ' "Because fathers usually are.a borne, we have allowed mothers, t Expels Gas From Stomach and Bowels become more emotional than la eeeuarjr. Now they most school lemselves so that they can think hrough the problems as they arise nd to curb any emotional out- urst over little thincs," Dr. Oje- mann said. Father usually is the discipline rian and with him absent the mother must keep in mind that no isciplme with the young child is elpful if it is based upon making he child do things rather than vorking things out thoughtfully. There never was a time when it is more vital for mothers to learn to nderstand their children. "Father still can help on the arger problems--but ask his ad- rice well ahead of time and don' vorry him about little things. Am when he comes home on furlough give him a little time to catch up with family matters and to settle into a new daily routine," Dr. Oje- mann advised. He also recommends: (1) moth er taking part in some community enterprise which will challeng her, (2) asking friends and neigh bors to play games in which fathe used to participate with the chil dren, (3) keeping cheerful and in terested, avoiding moodiness. , Wbcn constipation's gas way down in the bowel I blcaU you up and you feel miserable--get D .
