The Smith Plains Assueia tioit lor (lie KdiK-iUitm of Young Children is helping lo define effective parenting during the current Week of the Young Child. One association member. Hetty Wagner, part of the TADPOI.K team and an assistant pro fessor of child development and family relations at Tc.\ as Tech University, explains iiow some of the TADPOLE research relates to this parenting emphasis. "It's really Kreal to sec ihiiiKs bcinn done by par e.nts," .says Airs. Wagner. Her TADPOI.K colleagues arc Dr. Connie Stoele of I ho same flepai-tment and Dr. Sue M. Kiniry, assistant professor of special oduea tioJi. They are studying children from Uifobock's three major elhnic Croups. Family in conies ratine from lower lo lower-middle. Half of the children have d e 1 a y e d developmental problems. Ln one of Ihe few comments that Mrs. Wan- ner is ready to make about the results of the study, she observes ih.u the same type of parental guidance that helps normal children also does wonders for slow dc vcloper.s. She notes Ih.-U children with delayed (level opment h e n e I i t greatly "when disorders arc idenli- fied early and parents are Hivcn instruction and hope." The team, who began research in June, plans to develop hooks, teaching male. ial.s and video (apes which will be useful to agencies thai work with parents. One tape, "Parent and Child: I.eiirnin.^ Together," will be shown Friday and Saturday in Miami Beach al, a Southern Association on Children Under Six meeting. This tape contrasts two sets of parents, .not exports at paretUini;, but both doing exceptionally good jobs, according to TUrs. Wagner. One of the featured child- SPOTLIGHT ON... T'AGK ->.H m Mir.JUX'K. TKXAS cAfeu/s TUESDAY. APRIL S, l!)7.i ren is Lance, a b-monlh-old with Down's Syndrome. "Years ago, he might have been a closet baby. Rut Lance is operating very close to normal and in some aspects, right at normal." Mrs. Wagner believes Jiis family's care is partly responsible for his progress. The tape shows their pa t Jen), and repealed efforts in teaching Lance to "iripod." lo sit up by balancing, hands o.n legs. Mrs. Wagner explains that balancing is important to a baby's brain development. In the past, some Down's Syndrome children did not sit up until I hey were ,";. Litucc's family gives him plenty lo think about bright toys lo grasp, his father's watch to listen to. In a bath scene, his mother and sisters gently talk to him, encourage him iu splash and make a peel<-a- boo game of pulling his shirt over his head, which is sometimes frightening lo an infant. "Did you think you had disappeared f o r e v e r?" soothes Lance's mother. The final scene focuses on Lance playing with his puppy, caoh exploring the world wilh wobbly intensity. The other child is a '.}- year-old black girl, Sharon, at the top of the normal developmental level. She zips through the film in a flurry of learning, her play revealing imaginative thought processes. Daddy plays role games with her - the bear bunt story, songs — and cuddles her on his lap while he reads aloud. Mother attends her tea party as Sharon prepares "food" -- meat, bread, rice, cake — from the same lump of homemade salt clay. Both of Sharon's parents work. "But they are limed in lo her behaviour and seem to set learning tasks lo match her needs," says Mrs. Wagner. For instance, when Sharon's mother tried to illustrate number concepts wlh dominoes, a f r u s t r a t e d Sharon pushed them away and the mother wisely triad another game. And a puzzle which Sharon slapped together quickly is quietly replaced with a more challenging one. Mrs. Wagner advises parents to set aside a time for play with their child and to be aware of special needs for attention at other times. Mow do parents learn their jobs? Usually, 1'rom their own parents, says Mrs. Wagner. And there is "a spread of infonnation" between friends and neighbor i.
