Wlature Parent Maybe We're Afraid to Talk To Next-Door Bully's Parents By MRS. MURIEL LAWRENCE Still bothering a reader is the case of the violent four-year-old boy recently discussed in this column. He injured his sister, you may recall; got spanked and then went calling on a neighbor who slammed her door in his face. A Mrs. E. sympathizes with the neighbor. "I am tired of other peo- pie's untrained Children," s h e writes. "I have known many of these neighbor- fa o o d hoodlums who menace decent children, and I see no reason why I should welcome one into my home." We don't wish to entertain violence, no matter what age it is. That's an undeiv stacdable position — but why the slamming of the door in its face? Why the violence in response to violence? If we fear danger to Patsy from the small hoodlum next door, why don't we say so to his parents? Why don't we say to them, £i Until Billy's temper comes under control, we Mrs. Lawrence Club Eight Meets With Mrs. Allen Mrs. R. C. Allen entertained members of Club Eight yesterday afternoon. Arrangements of daisies and roses were used to center the tables where the guests were seated. Winners in the games played during the afternoon were Mrs. Jess White, high, Mrs. G. O. Poetz, second high and Mrs. Ruth Eleanor Afflick, bridgo. Mrs. Afflick was a guest of the group. The hostess served iced drinks during the games. feel that he and Patsy better stop playing together"? Perhaps we don't say this b«- cause it is usually hard to say. For the parents of uncontrolled Billy are apt to be uncontrolled themselves. Like him, they may be so uncertain of themselves that they react with belligerence to any suggestion that their behavior is imperfect. They may be so frightened by the disapproval implicit in our wish to keep Patsy from playing with Billy that they may make a most unpleasant scene. Because they may not be able to take the idea that they may be at fault, they will place the blame for Billy's violence upon us. And we may find ourselves the target of abuse about everything from our church attendance to the way we comb Patsy's hair. We usually sense such unpleasant emotional possibilities in these people without quite knowing that we do. And because we do not like to know that we are afraid of their irrational attack, we like to think of our fear as our desire to maintain neighborly peace. It's our resistance to knowledge of this fear that slams the door in Billy's face. For his behavior has impressively dramatized his parents' deficiencies to us. Standing on our. doorstep, he is the living embodiment of his parents, and since we don't dare show our rage at them lest they hurt our own sensitive feelings, we take it out on the child. We slam the door on what we do not want to know about ourselves. A victim ourselves of .Billy's parents, we are violent and rude to our fellow-victim.
