'Baby-Sitting' For Children Is Too Big a Burden A fifteen-yfar-cld baby siller has been awarded a bronze medal by the Carnrpic Hero Fund Commission for risking her life to rescue four children from death in burning house. After all the frightening stories about teen-age baby-sitters, that have hit the front pages in recent months, this tale cf heroism makes a heartening story. And yet it, too. points up the (act that we parents really have no business putting the - keeping of our children Into the hands of such young girls. This fifteen- year-old c h 11 d i swarms t u«.. recovering from wvere burns. She rtiked her life for her younr charge*. She deserves the medal that was given her. TOO HEAVY A BURDBN TOR YOUNGSTERS But we parents shouldn't put such grave responsibility onto the shoulders of teen-agers. Of course, we figure when we put our children in the care of a teenage babv-sltter that everything will be all right. That the Job is really just what It is called—-sitting." And yet such tragedies as fires do happen, and each time we leave our children with a teen-ager we are putting her in a position where she will have to meet any emergency that may arise. That is asking too much of a girl in her teens. Even if she has the bravery and the wits to meet a crisis with heroic courage, we have still asked too much of her.
