Mrs. Deems was graduated Competition Can Be Troublesome Among Children By DAVID NYDICK UPI Education Specialist Families with two or more children often have special problems. The parents are faced with jealousy, competition and comparisons between the children. Although these probably cannot be eliminated completely, understanding the problems will help reduce them. Each child must realize he is loved for his own self, abilities and accomplishments regardless of what his brother or sister might do. The following questions from concerned parents are problems which can be helped with a proper attitude. Question: I have two children, Jane, 11, and Frances, 6. In the past they have played together very nicely. During recent months I have noticed an unusual increase of antagonism. Jane seems to get pleasure out of teasing Frances. from Roseville High School and attended Western Illinois University where she affiliated with Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority. The bridegroom, a graduate of Northwestern High School, attended Lincoln College and Colorado State College and was graduated from Western Illinois University in June of this year. He is a member of Phi Sigma Epsilon fraternity. Frances gets upset and cries. Should I keep out of this situation or should I do some things which might improve the relationship? Answer: You are facing a common and natural occurrence. The girls are growing up. During the coming years the age difference will have an increasing effect upon their interests and relationship. They probably will not be close in the way they have been, and Jane will become more of an older sister. Perhaps the time nas come for you to provide opportunities for the girls to have separate activities more suitable for their own ages. You are correct in questioning the advisability of interfering in the actual relationship. The girls will do much to work this out by themselves. The main problem is impatience with each other's interests. If you can arrange different activities you will find an improved situation. Question: My son, Jim, 9, constantly is trying to compete with Ws older brother, Ed, 13. They are good students with excellent ability. Jim becomes quite frustrated when he cannot perform as well as Ed. Is there a way in which the pressure on Jim can be reduced so that he will be mor« relaxed? Answer: This competition between brothers is quite normal and is not necessarily all bad. The greatest problems are when the younger brother does not realize his limitations or feels that he is expected to meet the same standards as his older brother. In the situation which you describe there is the basis for a problem. The answer lies in your attitudes. Avoid making comparisons. Make sure that both boys realize that they are accepted for the own accomplishments. Perhaps too much stress is being placed on success. Too much praise can lead to pressure for success. The best attitude is one of relaxed acceptance. In school it probably would be advisable they they do not have the same teachers. This will avoid unnecessary comparisons. Thinking Only DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)-Des Moines Police Detective James L, McGuire reports: A friend operates a funeral escort service. Recently the escort held up several cars to permit a funeral procession to pass. One motorist became furious over the delay, followed the hearse to the cemetery, and berated the funeral director at the burial plot. Tear that drudgery right out of your calendar...
