Guest of Miss Virginia Wilson She says her husband w o r k s hard to support the family, but never wants to take the children anywhere. Let's face it. Ruth MiUet There are some fathers who love their chiWren and are willing to work hard to support them, but who don't enjoy doing things with them. They shudder at the thought of a picnic or a Sunday at the or even a ride with the whole family piled into the car. . If nagged into taking the family out they go unwillingly, and they not only don't have any fun themselves, but they spoil the fun for the rest of the family. So what can the mother do? Her best bet is to plan family outings when Papa is at work or has plans of his own. If he groans at the mention of a school picnic or church supper then Mama can say gently that she'll take the children. A family outing without the man of -the family along isn't the same thing as having Dad at the wheel of the car, running the expedition, but it is better than nothing. And who knows? Papa may not like the idea of the family's being able to have fun without him, and may decide he wants to go along after all. But even if he doesn't the children will get some pleasure, atj least, out of these fatherless family outings. And there is this consolation for the mother. The man who doesn't know how to enjoy young children often is an understanding father once they are older.
