' Children Often Meet New Experience With Doubt, Distrust, Fear ,By ALICE/JUDSON PEALE' Certain types of children meet every experience with a kind of natural eagerness, while others seem Inherently distrustful , of whatever is new and strange. They must first discover Mow the new thing acts before they go toward it to investigate or befriend : It. Tbjs type of child is particularly open to fear, disgust, shrinking or aversion: whenever, these -are suggested 'to -him. . If he spends his days in charge of an adult wJho ia always cautioning and warning^him while he plays, ha'is likely^to/.^tow up. afraid oS entirely too many things, and therefore unhappily limited in the range of his learning and'experience. Such a" child, should on the" contrary, be encouraged t;o meet new experiences with interest and pleas- ure. If he stops to look at a beetle making its way across the porch floor, look at it with hlnv help him to notice its feelers, its hairy legs, pointing out that it Is a wonderfully interesting creature. s The nest of field mice he discovers is as worthy of his delight as are the newly-hatched, robins on the lawn. - i . ,, The loud and formidable steam roller he may regard with appre- henslon'until his attention is drawn to the way it is smoothing the pavement and making it fine for Daddy's automobile. The moaning shriek of th4 vacuum cleaner may frighten him until he sees how nicely it picks the crumbs, and fiizz from the carpet, and discovers that with one finger he-can turn it on or off. ^aily living offers countless opportunities to help such a child overcome his apprehenstvenesa Watch for the signs" pf fear ana" disarm It thru interest..
