Prepared for Advent of Baby Into Family By,ALICE JTJDSON PEALE Before the mental hygienists made us think carefully about such things, the new baby was brot home as a surprise to the older child. The baby was placed in a cradle next to mother's bed, where it absorbed all of her thot and attention, and big brother was expected to show at once how pleased he was with the squalling intruder.- It was no wonder, under these circumstances, that the older child often worried his parents by his behavior. Either he was openly hateful toward the newcomer, or he ,de- iveloped a hitherto unknown ^ capacity for stubbornness, disobedience and bad'temper. Such difficulties, we have'learned, can be avoided by a carefully prepared welcome for the new baby, with the older child included on the reception committee. . He is the first to be told of the coming event. 'His questions in regard to the matter are simply and truthfully answered. He is allowed to help get things ready, to put the clothes awajMn the bureau drawer, to lay smooth the covers in the cradle. When mothers' friends come to visit, it is he who proudly shows them the preparations. He is tactfully prepared for the fact that the new baby will be quite, helpless, and therefore not much fun to play with at at first. At the same time is pointed out to him 'that he will then be a big brother, who, because he is older and knows so much more, must help take cara of him. . He is prepared for his mother's going away to the ho'spital, and learns to think of it as an opportunity for n\aking visits. During the time when she is away his father makes a special effort to be companionable, so that there will be no suddenly-felt lack of affection and security. _--_·*·-- MRS.
