In school, he does not apply himself to his fifth grade work as he could. If lessons or chores require any sustained effort from. him, he becomes impatient and begins to complain. "I don't understand him," writes his mother. "What's the matter with the child?" What's the matter with Carl's mother? Why is she complaining to me? Why does he make her impatient? ' Isn't it because Carl makes her feel helpless and overpowered? Carl may be whiny and impatient for the same reason. He, too, may feel helpless) Mrs. Lawrence and overpowered Human beings often react with such feelings when they are overburdened with too much pressure. Suppose my morning mail brings me a bin I thought I had paid Then, as I'm making Carl's bed, I find that his mended top sheet is ripped again. As I tear it into dust cloths, I recall that two of my teeth need dental attention. Now I must plan for new sheets. I remember low badly the kitchen linoleum needs replacement, how I shall have to wait for a spring hat, how my husband refuses to increase my budget . . . If I am not an alert person, I may begin to whine to myself or anyone who will listen. I may become so mpatient with the sustained effort of preparing supper that I serve a careless and ill-cooked meal. What's happened is that subrnis- ion to too many pressures has scattered my strength and disordered my thinking. This submission makes it impossible for me to focus on my present job or to bring order > future ones. Children are not different from us.

Great Reductions All Over The Store! . If their resulting whining and impatience irritates us, it may be because we don't recognize in their behavior our own symptoms of pressure-resentment. And indeed be quite aware of how often it manipulates us. So I wonder if Carl's mother is herself harassed by many disorderly demands on her.' If she hasn't learned how to regulate them, her impatience with them might easily drive her to make too many such demands on Carl. Nearly always we treat others the way we treat ourselves. And if we have not discovered how to protect our productivity by putting first things first, we would, of course, not understand Carl's need to discover the same thing. His whining and impatience would be mysterious to us. (Ail rights reserved, NEA Service, Inc.) '/2 PRICE SALE HOUSE PAINT Buy one Gallon White at Regular Price and Get* a Second at HALF PRICE!
