BAYTOWN AREA Crisis: 422-2292 WOMEN'S Off ice: 427-2421 CENTER By KAREN ANDERSON DEAR KAREN - My husband can't wait to play ball with our toddler (18 months), who is not that much interested in actually "playing ball." He loves to chase the ball and makes attempts at throwing. When can we expect to really be able to play a good game of catch? — L.P., PORTLAND, MAINE DEAR L.P. — Throwing is a complicated activity involving a whole series of motor or muscle sequences. It takes precision to let the ball go at just the right moment. Catching involves the use of the hands and eyes together to intercept an object in space. It takes experience and judgment to know just when to coordinate all those muscles. At about 2, a child will roll a playground ball while sitting. He will also make some attempts at throwing the ball overhand. Around six months later, he will begin to follow the object with his eyes as he throws it. His distance in throwing will in- JEFF WALTERS Sterling senior in Who's Who Jeff Walters, a senior at Ross S.

Heirport MASON Gail and Alan Mason of Crosby announce the birth of a son, Alan Cade, on April 2 in St. Luke's Hospital in Houston. He weighed 8 pounds. Grandparents are Albin and Lillian Kulak of Crosby and Glen and Dale Mason of Baytown. Great- grandparents are Lydia Kulak of Crosby and Millie Krizak of Baytown. crease to about four feet. He can now probably bounce and catch a playground ball once with both hands. By 3, he can throw the ball about six feet. He will begin lo catch it with his arms and body when it's bounced to him. He can now bounce the ball two or more times with both hands. At 3':; he can catch the bounced ball more accurately, though he'll still use his arms and body. You may begin to see him shift his weight to throw the ball, indicating more sophistication in the use of his entire body. By 4, he can usually catch a thrown playground ball with arms and body. Catching is especially difficult due to the speed of the object being thrown. Rarely is a 3- to 4'-year-old able to catch a ball coming through the air. To make playtime fun for both of you. keep in mind what your toddler can do. This will assure his feeling that he has mastered some skills and will also eliminate unrealistic expectations. Follow this sequence: 1. Roll and catch a rolled ball. 2. Bounce a ball individually or back and forth between parent and child. 3 Gradually increase the height of the bounce and distance between you. Always begin where your child can do something easily There- is great pleasure in pure accomplishment. At your son's ago just rolling is recommended A rolled ball is easier to track visually. Also, a rolled ball is slower than a thrown one, so the child has time to get into position to receive it. A ball being rolled toward a child is also less threatening than a thrown nail. Balloons, beanbags and scarves are much easier to catch and throw than a ball. They are perfect for introductory experiences and suitable for indoor play. ( Always remember to take safety precautions with popped balloons and beanbags.) When your child first begins to toss the ball, have him hold it slightly below his waist and simply let go of it by spreading his hands apart Be sure the ball has enough air in it so that it will bounce back into his grasp. As a child begins to learn to throw a ball, the movement force originates when the child flexes his arm, moves his shoulder foward and extends his elbow Suggest he step foward to transfer weight into the throw, using the opposite foot from the throwing hand. When catching, continually remind the child to look at the ball, rather than at the person throwing it. So. what may seem like a simple j>ame of ball is really very complex Don't push the child and let his natural skills evolve naturally Karen Anderson is a columnist for \ewspuper Enterprise Association Floral prints splash fashion scene By Florence De Santis After years when they were almost completely absent from the fashion scene, prints are back, splashing bold patterns and bright colors over everything from casual sportswear to cocktail clothes for spring. Even swimsuits take to the new themes. Florals still come up strong, relaunched by the Missoni's famous cabbage rose knits of a few seasons ago. They're popping up on dresses, pants and even casual clothes, such as dolman tunic T-shirts at Westside. Jim Heilman scatters- cabbage roses over his wrap- skirt yellow sundress. Two-piece dressing often calls for a knit top with full skirt. Irene Wallender makes the skirt of pink cabbage-rose print black cotton, than appliques a motif from the skirt on her black cotton knitT-top. When floral prints aren't roses, they're in spaced modern- art or splashy tropical designs. Eklectic spaces deep purple and red sharply defined nosegays over a dolman, full-skirted yellow shirtdress with a crushed cummerbund midriff. Jennifer Carr covers a red and royal jumpsuit with loose jacket massed in red and yellow tropical blooms — all in silk. Some designers now simply outline the floral prints and don't fill them in solidly with color. It's a look influenced by Japanese art, and Morton Myles likes it in embossed cotton jacquard. The huge blossoms are traced in red and left white against a jade background, which is repeated in the fitted, ribbed midriff. At Gordon of Philadelphia the look is done in fuchsia and navy roses that are partly filled in on a white skirt in impressed pleats, and repeated in larger size on the shoulder and opposite hem of a blouson dolman knit T-lop. Other prints, particularly on sportswear, highlight fruit this spring. Sometimes it's a single motif, such as big watermelon slices on a swimsuit. I.B. Diffusion centers a pineapple on a black-and-white striped cotton sweater. But Evelyn Pearson scatters a whole fruit bowl across her tank- top white playsuit. Gitano does a group of oversized shirts in colorful fruit print, to mix with pants in any of the colors. Lean jeans at Brooke Shields Jeanswear are covered with bananas and peaches and are worn with a banana yellow shirt. Monsoon of London uses black, brown and white Guatemalan Indian theme in a mix of diamond zigzag shapes. Children's toys, including tops and teddy bears, are spaced over sportswear cottons. At Nik Nik, while swirls pattern a black sleeveless shirt over black pants in white scribble print. Anne Pinkerton prints black letters on scribbles for an oversized shirt worn over a tied camp shirt and pants in herringbone pattern.
