Life in United Home Has More Value Than Great Maternal Care By BROOKE PETERS CHURCH Into the lives of all parents there come times when the crises of the family life pile up to gigantic proportions. This is especially true when the children are tiny and colds anc children's diseases follow one another with incredible speed. There are long hours of vigil beside sick children, emergencies when life seems a nightmare. During these tiroes all rules are off, and father and mother are glad and thankful to lie down and seek oblivion in sleep whenever an op portunity comes. But there comes a time when tnli e-haustion becomes a habit, and especially with mothers. They for get, in the ceaseless wear of tend ing children, that marriage mean: anything more than motherhood and lose the dream of companion ship with which they started out. It is on this rock that hundreds o: homes have split and left th wreckage of what should have been happiness. No matter what the in cessant demands of childhood are a woman cannot afford to let them absorb all her time and energy, S that when her husband comes in after a day's work, he finds he cross or worn out and ready to g 1 to bed. Except when children are actuall sick, they can do with far less at tention than the average conscien tious mother gives them. It is more important for them t grow up in a happy and unite home than to be endowed with th material and physical benefits o overdevoted maternal care. As the grow older most children take prid in their parents' mutual devotio and happy life together, and sue a background.they.cannot have their mother has become exciusivi ly a nursemaid.
