Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednetday, April 11, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HfttAlD 25 What every child should know about parenthood Rhythm high and loiv The stage pulsated with rhythm as the National Dance Company of Senegal open- ed at New York's Madison Square Garden this week. The troupe features authentic, ally-costumed dancers, singers, drummers and stilt-walkers, upper left, and acrobats, upper right, from various centres in Senegal, West Africa. NEW YORK (AP) "I al- ways thought I'd have children when I grew up because that's what people normally said David, a round-faced, serious 13-year-old. "Now I'm thinking maybe I won't." David started rethinking hi; for future parenthocc after attending a unique junior high school class on what it's like to be a parent, taught by child psychologist and author Dr. Lee Salk. Salk, director of the division of pediatric psychology at New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Centre, said he believes the weekly class is the first of its kind in the country. He started it, he said, be- cause he thinks there's a great need for formal education for parenthood, which now is prac- tically nonexistent. "Parenthood is maybe the most important role we have, but we're given the least amount of training for Salk said in an interview. "Many people should not have children because they're not ready to accept the responsi- he said. They really don't know what they're getting themselves into, "They're not particularly in- terested in becoming parents, but they're under a lot of social pressure to do so anyway. If they know in advance, as teen- agers, what it's really like, it may convince them not to have children." HAS ANOTHER REASON Salk has another reason for teaching a group of Grade 8 students about parenthood. 'A lot of kids that age feel they're misunderstood by their parents. If I can help them un- derstand how difficult parent- hood is, the more sensitive they'll be to their own parents. They'll be able to better com- municate with each other Children are just naturally curious about why their parents behave the way they do, added the author of "What Every Child Would Like His Parents to Know."

She is blind. Neither does she need assist- ance from books in braille. "When vou've listened to chil- dren recite from their readers all your life, you get to know them by heart." she says. But Marie has not been blind all her life. It was little more than a decade ago that her eye- Eight began to fail Now 4S and totally blind, she coaches children with learning disabilities, especially those with reading problems. Teachers and psychologists have used such words as fantas- tic to describe her success. Marie's classroom is a con- verted basement room in her home here, some five miles west of Brantfcrd. There, with books, tape recor- der and a magnetic blackboard with a three-dimensional alpha- bet and nuiiiwcrs from one to nine, she instructs youngsters referred to her by parents, teachers and guidance counsel- lors. She used In be a Jcacbcr with the former BranUord board of education, but that career came to an end when her eyesight went. Now, instead of dealing with a class full of children, she works one student at a time for a few hours each week. Her blindness, she thinks, can serve as an inspiration to the cMdrcn.

You can be sentimental when the occasion demands but by and large you are objective. Here's the situation. A former high school class- mate moved to this city a few weeks ago. We talked on the phone and she invited me over for coffee yesterday. She casually mentioned that she had a six-year-old son who was an "exceptional" child. I assumed, of course, that by "exceptional" she meant un- usually smart, or something to brag about. Imagine my surprise when the "exception- al child" turned out to be severely retarded. I was un- prepared for the shock and did my test hide my em- barrassment. Is it fair to do this to a person? Why dsd she use the word Why not BEAR ANN LANDERS: V.0iat are people supposed to do when unexpected company drops in on Sunday and srts and sits?
