High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - December 11, 1925, High Point, North Carolina Point Enterprise december of 19 % our children by Angelo Patri running away when a child runs away it is Plain that he is running away from something to something. Usually the runaway is an Only child. Little children have an instinctive desire for action. They must to doing something or they must be be close to those who Are doing things that interest them. The Only child will run away to get a Chance to do things or watch other people do them. If there is a squad of men open-1 ins a Trench along the Street there j will be a line of children toeing the Trench inside live minutes after the first shovel Ful has been tossed out. They will stand and watch in silent Content until they have had their fill and then they will turn shout in a body and go off to make a Trench of their own near by. That is their nature and nothing wrong about it. Trains and Street cars and merry go rounds have a great attraction for children simply because they Are Tho actual moving things that go and come and do something while you watch them and More delightful still Thev will carry you along while they do it and there Are chances to see a crowd of other people and things moving briskly. That a real life for the healthy child. There is danger in this search for activity. The impulse to go is not. Paralleled by the Power to protect oneself in the face of danger nor the Faoul Uty of recognizing Dan Ger when one sees it. To at makes us anxious about the wanderings of the Young crusaders. What a to be done about it of course the first and most essential thing to do for the lonely child is to give him a playmate. He should have another child or two or four to keep him company and to provide the stimulant for action close to the Doorstep. Fit up the backyard with some dirt and shovels and a few bits of Board and tin and wheels the rubbish dear to builders of four to ten and Call them in from the byways. The More the merrier and the safer. Teach each child his name and address and Telephone number and impress upon Bim that when he is on the Broad Highway he policeman is his own Best Friend and will help him find his Home or his Way about the world. name and address on the Collar of his coat and inside Ais pocket put it in his Cap in Ink and on Tho lining Mark his clothes so he can be easily identified. If you cannot provide playmates and play Yard perhaps you can Send him to a Day Nursery or an infant school. If there is none in your neighbourhood perhaps a few of you could get together and engage a Young teacher to organize a playground and so keep them All Safe. Tying children up is a last resort and i would never do it. Locking them up is almost As had and Locking them in the House All alone is to it dangerous tor a you have a runaway Stop and extra in the conditions and determine from what he is running and toward what he is going and see if there is no hint in that for your course.
