Uy JCDi; llcriilrt Staff Writer The years ID and 12 can JMi Irying for both parent and child, and n lol uf uiuler- stancling is needed. Joan Pnckclt, LctlihritlRe r'amily Services counsellor, ex- plained Ihe anil ideals lie hehind the actions of this age group. The child in tins age is ''very conscious of hat id she said, and "develops a keen sense of justice." "The values which are adop- .cd may be to the luil arc right lo Ihem." At this stage of development, the child is keen to notice dlf- [crencus in what Ihe parent says, and what the parent does, lie is ready to ILnail the parent" on these differences, although not willing to express them directly to the parent. In dealing the 10 lo 12 year old, Mrs. Pnckett said there is a need lo "develop more responsibility, so that they may gain moie laid' on. Ways in which to encourage decision making would be to allow children lo "buy tlieir own clothes, wash their clothes, learn lo cook and let Ihem do chores around the house." all of which arc jobs. She added that pmxmLs should be ''open lo with the child, as this appeals lo his sense of justice and brings him into "a part of Iho big world." Bargaining can be put into practice through the child's understanding of the family's finances. "Strike a bargain for some- thing Ihe child she said. "Explain, 'I can't afford that, ren s problems by teachers will you share the cost out of your allowance, or extra chores'." This type of action brings about an understanding of tbo value of money, and allows leaching o[ sharing in Hie fam- ily she said During these years, the child becomes involved in relation- ships with the other sex, de- velops gangs, deep friendships with his own sex, and finds re- lationships with adults impor- tant, said Mrs. PuckelL "This is in effect n dress re- ucrsal which leads into the teen years. "They are learning bow lo get along in the adult world, figure out the rules, and how lo deal with she said. Mrs. PnckcU said that the child "still needs guidance of the parents and is not quite able lo make all his own deci- sions and act on them At the same time, the prob- lem of accepting authority is about at the same slajje ay dial of the two year old, where alt suggestions arc met with 'no'. The 10 to 12 age group Is also at the slagc where "their chemistry is getting to she said. Sex education comes to the top of the subject list, anil "the information given is never as important as the said Mrs. PuckelL The physiology can be ob- ained from any good biology )ook, "but Ihe attitude has lo come from the she said. In conclusion, she said that in Ibis stage "need an area or a room of Iheir or collecting and keeping Rs. They can't stand nag- ging and it just doesn't work. "The parent needs to com- municalc, lo negotiate, make contracts and ask 'how do you said Mrs. Puckctt. She said that if the child was not given practice and training n coping, decision making ind understanding, he would not be able to make It on his own later on. "There is no easy answer, there can'l be n perfect parent and the children need to under- stand that. It oil works both she said. CALGARY (CP> If a child with normal intclhgence seems bored, frustrated or unable to cope with his school work, liis problem may be a visual disa- bility, says Dr. John Pierce of the University of Alabama. About three per cent of the population suffer from refrac- tive impairment ncarsighled- nes, farsigliledncs or astigma- and these pioblems can be easily corroded, fie said. Dr. Pierce is director of the ision research and function laboratory at the university's centre for diagnosis and treat- ment of learning disabilities. He .spoke to a convention of the Al- berla Oplomelric Arsociation. The disability, which is easily diagnosed and treated wilh len- ses, often is picked up by teach- ers, bo said. However, they often recognize it more by 'an erlucalcd hunch" than by recog- nizing what is wrong. Jn cases where Ihe eye itself is free from refractive impair- ment, the problem may be some form of eye funclion abnormal- ily, such as an inability to focus properly or an inability lo inter- pret visual clues tn adjust focus. CAL'SKS CONTUSION Another problem i.s lhat ol binocular co-ordination, the ina- bility lo aim holii eyes at pre- cisely the same point. If Ihe child's eyes .sci; two different images, I he information re- ceived by the brain is confused. Often a child wilh I his type of impairment will appear clumsy or awkward for his Dr. Pierce snid. ou oum Iror example, If a child is re-1 ceiving confused images ol a i ball bouncing toward him, he' will be unlikely to catch it, partly because he doesn't know where to reach for it and partly because the confusion frightens him. The school environment can be cruel tor a child with a vis- ual impairment. Dr. Pierce said. If he needs four times as long to be able to focus his eyes on a word, he can feel the scorn of his classmalcs when be is forced to stand up and read. LISTS SYMPTOMS And when it lakes time to focus and recognize each word, the child "goes so laboriously through the parfs that he never gets lo the whole." His compre- hension is nearly nil. The effects of such learning experiences are cumulative and the fragmentary bits of knowl- edge a child picks up don't help him to adjust. Dr. Pierce said teachers could be trained lo recognize visual disabilities. The symptoms most readily noticeable include: reddening, granules or styes. nausea, blurred vision or burning eyes. head m o v c tn e n Is while reading, using the finger as a marker, skipping words or lilies while reading and writing uphill or downhill. attention span. reading posture.
