To accept so much responsibility \\-i;h full rea!J7.;ilion lhat it is nrres.s;;rv. and lo do il without i oinplaml. is a fine thing fo-- a yoim.^ter our age. Your mother's life is a hard one. but she must ba\ e ' great consolation ill her elder i daughter. I hope the younger i children also shnre ill home duT,i-s. I No milller how small Ihey ;i--e. some tasks should be aiiollcd 10 · them. II wouldn't be fair for you and mother to shoulder the enlirc burden alone. All Children Slmulrt Hrlp i While households less hurrien- ed than yours cannot expect as much from children, all younc- sters should ha\ p a share in home responsibilities. If these las'KS were ! imposed on even Ihe quite youim. ! they would be iicceplcd as part of daily roiiline. Naturally, if parents . w a i t until a daughter is ],,. then tell her .--he is expected (o help I'.ilh dishes, there will be a ler- riiic squawk. If the same child l.i-il begun lo help clear the table ; a' ago li. it would be taken for 1 d'antcd that she had a part lo play in afiei-dinner chores. ! Whether children should be paid for jobs that fall nalurally within their orbit or not is a decision lo be made by parcnls in individual cases. My opinion is that da'ily li-sks should be accepted as part of their resjionsibilities toward the home, but cxlrn po.^kd money could be can-.ed by doing special jobs, especially those for which ouiMdc help would be needed. Such work as taking down storm wi-idows. put'ing up screens, paii:1 ; n£. or Ihe like, are worth special apnrccialion, which m-a y lal.c !bc form of extra pocket n'.o:icy. a special recreational treat, or wh.-iievrr ,-nncaIs most to the clli'd.
