"I simply can't trim it so it looks like this year's "Well, if you can't make it over, make n ilo " udel." YOUR CHILDREN BY OLIVE ROBERTS BARTON. "Look here, Dick. See how you streaked the windows of the car. You must not use a dirty cloth." "I guess I did, Dad. But all the rags looked alike to me." "Don't you know that when you go at a cleaning job, you use one rag for wiping, another to polish the paint, and a very clean one to shine the windows?" "I know it now, I guess, but I never thought about it before," said Dick. At this point Dick's mother calls the boy inside. "What did you do to the shades, son? They rolled nicely before, but since you hung them they are so loose they won't go up or down, There's no spring .to them.! 1 Then father comes and explains that the newly-cleaned shades should have been rolled tightly before hanging. And adds that he is surprised about any boy not knowing the trick of window blinds. This man has a habit of correcting his boy, or being amazed at his ignorance, and wonders why Dick hesitates to ,do the odd jobs assigned him. He is always doing things wrong, so says his dad. Knowledge Taken For Granted. It is a habit common to all of us parents, to give a child orders, without first explaining the way to do it, or better ,81111, showing him how. We take so much for granted. What a boy or girl discovers for himself is, of course, of great value, but when they work under orders and make mistakes through ignorance, then it is best not to be too critical. The fault is largely our own. "I want the hedge trimmed today," says Mr. Jones to his son, without a. word of explanation. Then if Mr. Jones comes home and sees the hedge cut back only six inches when he wanted at least a good foot, he should not fuss. His orders should have been more explicit, because a boy will not stop to ask exactly what is to be done, or how he is to do it. Girls Are No Exception. Or Mrs. Jones says to Mabel, "I won't be home in time to put the potatoes on to bake. I wish you would scrub them and put them in the oven." So Mabel puts them on at foul- o'clock with a big five, and by six they are as blaqk as coal and as hard as bullets—almost arj hour overdone. "I thought anyone could bake a potato," declares mother, a little impatiently. "They only take an hour with a slow fire." Many .little assignments that we give to our children, .that seem so simple to us, need a word or two of explanation beforehand. There Is. nothing Hke a clear direction to the novice who will otherwise have to guess, and then thru no fault, of his own be called to account«as likely as not. There Is a right way and a wrong way to do the, simplest tasks. . The blunderer.'Is not wrong usually because he is careless or dull,, but because he has never been told about the important points of procedure. (Copyright,, 1937, jJEA Service, Inc.)
