how to rear their children Pediatricians give it and so do relatives friends neighbors and even politicians Parents usually use the model given by their own parents as a measuring tool for determin ing their own style of parenting Some parents repeat the childrearing patterns they are most familiar with those their own parents followed Others adopt prac tices that are intentionally very different from those used by their parents Basically there are three styles of parenting authoritarian permissive and authori tative Authoritarian parents try to control their childrens behavior and attitudes and make them conform to a set and usually absolute standard of conduct These parents value unquestioning obedience and punish their children for acting contrary to the parents stan dards Unfortunately authoritarian parents children tend to be more discontented withdrawn and dis trustful These children are often so strictly con trolled by either punishment or guilt they often can not make a conscious choice about the merit of a par ticular behavior they are too concerned about what their parents will do Permissive parents make few demands allowing Helping hand extended to parents Connie M Feightner Guest Column their children to regulate their own activities as much as possible Parents who follow this style are noncon trolling nondemanding and relatively warm and their children tend to be immature the least self controlled and the least exploratory The children from permissive homes receive so little guidance that they often become uncertain and anxious about whether they are doing the right thing Authoritative parents try to direct their childrens activities rationally with attention to the issues rather than the childrens fear of punishment or loss of love They exert firm control when necessary but they explain the reasoning behind a stand and encour age verbal giveandtake Often the children of authoritative parents are the most selfreliant selfcon trolled selfassertive exploratory and content The problem with parenting based on these theo ries is that the theories sound wonderful but do not give any specific guidance for the parent in the day today world So what is a parent to do Is it possible to learn parenting skills that will apply to the reality of a 24hour sevenday week with children Sys tematic 1 raining for Effective Parenting is

Family Outreach of Comal Clinton pledges million t6 fight terror m m J By BARRY SCHWEID AP Diplomatic Writer JERUSALEM AP Grieving with the Israeli people President Clinton pledged million on Thursday to the fight against terrorism But he acknowledged that no one not presidents or princes or prime ministers can guarantee a riskfree In an emotional trip that coupled meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres with a visit to the grave of Peres slain predecessor Yitzhak Rabin Clinton imag ined aloud how Americans would react to the terrorism that confronts Israel Our people would be off the wall They would be angry They would be furious They would want he said To that end Clinton pledged the million over two years to pay for antiterrorism initiatives including train ing bombdetection scanners Xray systems and robotics for handling suspect packages Israeli officials said they envisioned using much of the aid to help establish a separation zone with the West Bank to try to prevent terrorist infiltration The idea of the zone which would include electronic fences guard towers and bombsniffing dogs was first pro posed by Rabin and was approved by the Israeli Cabinet March 3 In Washington however a State Department official said The United States does not intend for any of its aid to be used in any kind of permanent separation Clinton intends to use million already approved Analysis by Congress and is asking for another million for the fiscal year that begins in October Fear must be conquered security must be restored and peace must be Clinton said Shlomo Dror spokesman for the Israel army liaison with the Palestinians said the government was being asked to provide special training for bombsniffing dog units and for electronic equipment to be used along the sep aration line Israel also needs helicopters and allterrain vehicles to help patrol the zone he said The proposal has been denounced by Palestinian lead ers Clinton left Israel Thursday evening leaving behind a team of officials including CIA Director John Deutch and Secretary of State Warren Christopher to work on an antiterrorism accord The aim is to complete an agreement before Peres vis its Washington late next month At a joint news conference with Clinton Peres promised that the peace process would continue although he said the terrorist attacks on Israel made it more complicated Its not black and white Its like climbing a mountain It is dif ficult it takes time You dont reach the peak in one he said Clintons visit came a day after the Red Sea summit which saw Israelis Arabs and other world leaders gathered together in an unprecedented joint stand against terror ism The foundation was laid to go ahead with peace and reject Peres said Said Clinton Can we create a riskfree world here in Israel No Can we reduce the risks and do much better He brought with him a stone from the White House lawn where Rabin had sealed with a handshake a landmark peace agreement with Yasser Arafat now head of the Paleslinian Authority We aring a black skullcap Clinton placed the stone on the slain prime ministers tombstone at Mt Herzl Cemetery in accordance with Jewish tradition Rabins widow Leah looked on and afterward joined hands with Clinton Rabin was killed Nov 4 by a Jewish militant opposed to relin quishing Gaza and most of the West Bank to the Pales tinian s Cl nton stopped as well at Beit Hinuch a Jerusalem high school that lost three graduates in the four suicide bombings that have rocked Israel since Feb 25 Outside he toldieporters If you want to be free and safe you have to stand against terror It doesnt matter whether youre Israelis or B all appearances Clintons message was wellreceived by a xmntry whose confidence in landfor peaci deals with the Arabs was shaken by the bombings All open societies are vulnerable to violence he said In Tel Aviv he said terrorism had its roots in the grip of that ancient fear mat life can only be lived if youre look ing down on someone We know your pain is unimaginable and in some extent unsharable but America grieves with he said Write em GOVERNMENT OFFICES President of the Bill Clinton 1600
