TEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 2 li)36 Whims of Child About Food to Be Discouraged By GAK11Y C. MYEICS, PH. D. Child Training Expert 1 wonder how many hundreds of fathers in this country demand that special foods be prepared for them at each meal. Sometimes they will say that they dare not eat the usual foods. Once in a thousand cases, possibly, this may be true, but nearly always they just think certain foods "do not agree with" them, or they will desire special foods just because they are very fond of such. Do these lathers realize how very childish their food choices are? Well, talk to those who knew these fathers in their infancy and childhood, if you wish to know how their food whims started. "Dear Mr. Myers: My trouble is getting my little girl, aged 12, to eat the meals I prepare for the rest of us. For example, today I had rice soup, roast beef and potatoes and cake for dessert. She did not want any of these things but asked for French toast, which I finally made for her. . . . What she likes she eats a lot of, but it is very provoking to have to make her something different at almost every meal." Conscientious Mother. Think of the thousands of very conscientious mothers who are wearing themselves out to satisfy the whims of a child like this--and training the child to have still more whims. Consider the ill effect on the character of a child from such treatment If you have a child like this,.make up your mind at once to be her slave no more. Calmly tell her so. Tell her, furthermore, that no special foods will be prepared for her henceforth, but that she. will eat what the family has or nothing; and CATCHING COLD? Try this unique aid to nose and upper throat -- where .most colds start. Its timely use helps prevent many colds. Just a /cio drop* up each nostril VICKS VA-TRO-NOL The remarkable success of Vicks drop] hai brought scores of imitations. The trade mark Va-tro-nol is your protection in getting this exclusive Vicks formula. Regular tixe... 30t Double quantity 50c see to it, if you are in control, that she shall have no food between msals. Then prove that you have character enough to make your word good. Ever think of this as a character problem in yourself before? Allowed to Choose. Provided this child chooses not to eat, express no concern whatsoever. You gave her an opportunity to choose. She may, however, lose weight. Very well. It will be regained later--in case you prove a master of yourself. No good reason, however, why the child should not have the privilege to request beforehand that certain foods be included in the family menu; which requests you will honor within reason, remembering of course, the wishes and the welfare of the entire family. Your letters are always welcome. Write me in care of this paper, inclosing a self addressed stamped envelope. LEGION AUXILIARY MEETS AT F. G. E.
