MONDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1941 BLYTHEVILLB, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FJVB War Hits U. S. Children, Too Parents Must Soften Its Impact IJY EDNA DEAN BAKKIl Written for NEA * Service War is playing an important role in the lives of American children. The time has come when parents, as well as teachers, must learn to clea) intelligently with the impact that the strife abroad is making on the emotions, thoughts, and actions of youngsters. clined to be very appreciative of America, comments like these are 'frequently heard: "We can be thankful we live In this country where there is no war," and "we're fortunate to have so much good food here." CHILDREN ABSOKR IDEAS FKCM SURROUNDINGS Boys of this age continue to be interested in planes and submarines, though they are less inclined to dramatic play, and more likely to pore over books and magazines which contain pictures of war machines. Both boys and girls are interested in geography, economic and diplomatic prob lems, nnd the effect war is having on the lives of children in Europe. These older children hear, see. and absorb a great deal from the discussions, attitudes and beliefs of acluIUs. Therefore, parents who want their children to have a fnir and j intelligent view of current affairs' should try to provide such an en- ! vironmcnt in the home. They should stress a tolerant attitude' toward the people of all countries, I and promote a sympathetic understanding by talking over the historical, geographic, and economic factors involved in the present conflict.

Daniels, Administrative Officer Of Little Rock, stated. '. I When children see our soldiers inarching off in uniform, they should be told that the men are foing, not to war, but to a year's training so that, if necessary, they will know bow to protect this country. We have found that children from the ages of four to fourteen are keenly aware of a world at war. Youngsters under four, with the exception of . a few who are unusually sensitive or alert, seem quite obvious to the war. Parents need to recognize, the varying reactions of children of different ages, and let their own attitudes be determined accordingly. Children from four to seven years of age, for instance, are going through a highly imaginative and expressive period when their ability to "feer' emotionally for exceeds their ability to "understand" and •'reason." They are the youngsters who sometimes awaken at night crying that "Hitler is getting them," and at other times become very nervous because they believe 'then* parents are about to be killed .by soldiers. • It is best for parents' to avoid talking about war and listening to war broadcasts in the presence of these '."young children: --Since '.they • are certain to hear of war events from playmates, however, their questions should be answered briefly and simply in a manner that .is free from either fear or hatred; Parents should make a special effort to give these small children a feeling of security. Som_e of them will need frequent reassuring that Hitler will not "get them." that our country is not at war, and that the fighting is far away. FOR 8-YEAR OLDS DISCUSS THE TECHNIQUES When they ask about military training, it is wise to explain that the men are not going to war, but only for a year of training, so that is -we ever do need to protect ourselves, the men will know how. | Children who are seven and i eight years of age continue to be j emotional about war. but . since | they read newspaper headlines and follow current events in picture magazines, it .is neither possible nor desirable for parents to ignore war.
