Principles, Not Answers, Are Guide To Youngster's Behavior Problems BY MRS. MURIEL LAWRENCE If Johnny complains that he can't do his arithmetic homework, how do we help him? Do we sit down beside him, take his pencil and compute each answer for him? Not if we want him to learn to do arithmetic himself. Not if we went him to feel competent to solve any long division example that comes his way, for instance, we give him the principle by which all such arithmetic problems are solved. Child guidance books that tell us the answers to each of Johnny's behavior problems are equally unhelpful. We need the principles for solution, not the answers to his behavior problems. The other day I picked up the principle we need to restore his confidence after misbehavior. At the New York School of Social Work we were discussing the case of a wife discouraged by marital conflict. Teacher Elizabeth G. Meier said: "It is always well to remind such a client of her former happiness with her husband. By helping her to recall her past success in resolving disagreements with him, we encourage renewed confidence in her power to work out present ones." Do we see how this principle can be applied for instance, to the child who is sullen and ashamed of being caught in a lie? It can develop our own independent action toward Johnny, leading us to seek him out in his bedroom and say: "Why are we so sad about this lie you told? Think of all the times you've told the truth, darling! Do you remember the afternoon you came straight home from school and said. 'Mother, I've lost my pen-and-pencil set — the birthday set Grandma gave me.' You were afraid I'd be angry at your carelessness and scold you for it. Yet you told the truth in spite of being afraid. I was so proud ..." Uneasy constraint often exists between us and Johnny after he's misbehaved. When it does, I hope we'll not forget to use this principle. For it will renew our own stren-gth, as we help Johnny recover his. By requiring us to itemiae past examples of his truthfulness, it will dissipate our own discouraged feat that his lie is a dreadful symptom of entrenched evil in our little boy. And it will release us from the anger we so .often feel to- ware children when their conduct has made us feel helpless. It's a principle to help you work out your own answer. sented with a corsage of pink rosebuds. RIALTO, Calif. (£>)—The ground observer corps for civil air defense went through its paces for a whole week andn scheduled for the end of the week - a shower of leaflets on the town from several airplanes.
