But equally unfortunately these examples of the havoc undisciplined and uncontrolled children can make of their lives have driven Many other parents to the opposite extreme and turned them into grinding tyrants who Are wrecking their children a lives just As effectually As the neglectful parents have wrecked theirs. The House where i lived when i was a child seemed the largest and finest in j town there were White columned porches Anc Arches and domes with fairy like spindles around. I i am thinking As i write this of a boy i know. A Fine intelligent lad of 18. A big strapping fellow six feet tall filled with health and a Energy and High animal spirits but whose father keeps him a virtual prisoner because he is determined that his son shall be kept away from All evil influences As far As possible. Club to hold Garden Benefit on May 3rd Gar for this Chap has no More Liberty than a ticket of leave Man. His every minute must be accounted for when he is away from Home even in going to and from school and if he is a second late lie has to furnish an air tight Alibi. He has never been permitted to take part in any school activities or to play on any of the athletic teams because that might bring him in Contact with boys who Are not Snow White. He has never been Given a cent of pocket Money for fear he might spend it foolishly. When he is at Home he cannot even answer the Telephone without giving a full account about who was speaking and what they said and what he said. He dare not even go to the Corner drug store without asking permission. He is forbidden even to speak to girls for who knows what that might Lead to this boy is desperate and wildly rebellious As he naturally would be. He would run away from Home except that he has an invalid Mother to whom he is devoted. He is beginning to hate his father As an oppressor. And the most pitiful feature of the whole situation is that the father adores the lad and his cruelty to him is just his mistaken belief that he is safeguarding him against the follies of youth. Chinese lanterns and Lovely Den blooms will form the setting the Garden party Benefit of the Arcadia woman s club to be held at the Home of mrs. Charles l. Newell. 443 Leroy Avenue on tuesday afternoon May 3. The May Day Benefit will be in the form of a dessert Bridge with dessert being served at i of clock.

C. Fields a Martha Kaye j \ Ltd a also Ltd a the Baroness i and the Butler Annabella and we. Powell this father forgets two important things. One is that we Are born with a hankering for forbidden fruit and the More we Are denied doing what we want to do the More we Long to do it. Nowhere is so glamorous As the place we cannot go. Nothing so fascinating As the thing we cannot do. We get no particular kick out of the things we can take or leave As we please. It is their being denied us that makes us determined to have them. Be Derby a special 75c dinner will Deli a Hivon hence the importance of letting a child find out As Early As possible the True value of things and to learn to use them in moderation. The next thing the Over strict father forgets is that however much he May disapprove of the modern a world it is a place in which his son has to live and that the son should be fitted to meet its dangers and not kept in ignorance of them. He can t always be kept locked up in a room at Home. He can to always be kept immune from evil in flue aces. He has to encounter bad men and bad women and be subjected to temptation. And the thing to do is to teach him How to meet them and walk warily through the snares that Are Laid for his feet. Of avs 1vk by so up pc det u sate4 specie1 Cue pm be of Chob Rica v the Wise father does not try to protect his children too much. He give them Freedom and teaches them that Liberty is not License. He teaches them to handle Money by giving them an allowance and making them pay for their mistakes when they waste it he teaches them self Reliance by letting them make their own decisions and abide by them and. Above All. He makes himself their Friend Counselor and guide by showing them sympathy understanding and helpfulness. In a word to practice moderation which is As great a virtue in Reading children a it is everywhere else in life. 0 Dorothy Dix. Copyright Ledger Syndicate.
