"Like it or not, gift buying Is the responsibility of the adult, not the child," says Professor Elizabeth Alden, supervisor of Ihe Preschool Laboratories at the University ot Iowa Institute of Child Behavior and Development. She feels that putting a small child through the same gift-buying process Dial adults fiice is a frustrating anil overwhelming experience thai may well affect future nltiluilrs. Dr. Alden suggests Hint parents discuss wilh their child weV ahead of any .shopping expedl lion the presents they think Jiiiglit OP appropriate for UIL child to give. The child should be given some voice in I lie selection, she says, so that he feels the choice is up to him. "l*til too many alternatives will merely overwhelm him," slip warns. "A young child can make a choice comfortably from only two or three things. Discuss with Iho child ahead of time the choices he r;m make and show why a; 1 , idea of his may or may not. be good for a particular person." It is important, According to Dr. Alden, for the gift to he something that the child <-nn enjoy, loo. "Little girls enjoy symbols of being grownup," she says, "so the gift they give might be something that has an alt faction for them, like a hairbrush or cosmetics." The gift should also be something that the adult will use, she advises. "The child should feel that the tiling he values is also valued by someone else. Parents should be able to .show real about their gifts— the child feels rejected when his products arc rejected," she Dr. Alden cautions against let- tine the child go shopping alone, even in a small town. "An unhurried time for both parent ntul child should he arranged when Recipe of the day By Cecily Rrownslone CKKAM CIIKESE COOKIKS 1 cup flour 1 \ teaspoon salt '•j eup butler or margarine •1 ounces cream cheese 2 teaspoons grated orange rind } 2 eup sugar 1 egg yolk 1 package (fi o/.s.) s e m i- swoet chocolate pieces Vi eup coarsely chopped walnuts Stir together t h c flour and salt.
