"You've got to have the ability to stop when giving a child heck, and remember how you felt at that age." Mr. Landry, director of ele- mentary educntion for the Sep- arate School Board, was dis- cussing education as a contin- uing process at the Lclhbridgc Family Sen-ice's weekly scries on child development. During his discussion, Lando1 Maslmv quoted his .Dr. Abraham amhoritv. Or. Maslow, he explained, is a hu- manistic psychologist, as oppos- ed to the behavioral and Freud- ian psychologists. The behavioral psychologist, using the basic idea that man is an animal, studies other ani- psychologists man. Freudian believe certain cause us to behave as we do. Dr. Maslow uses a combina- tion of both, adding humanism, which defines seven basic needs that, according to Mr. Landry, ''are theory, but make pretty good sense." Mr. Landry pave his own in- terpretation of these seven needs PHYSIOLOGY This covers food, water, air, elimination, rest and sexual heard father say 'I love you.'

In order to learn in thn home or in the school, "a child must be successful at what he is da- ing." SELF-ARTICULATION This is self-fulfilment, or the desire to be what a person is capable of being. When children are grown, a mother may feel let down and think of "what she might have if slie had the chance." said Mr. Landry. "This type of attitude nibs off on the kids and makes for an unhnpoy home atmosphere." "Yet according to Maslow, if all your needs up to this point are met, you should be a preliy stable individual."

Parents can help by provid- ing proper nutrition and rest, and should be able to answer sexual questions when the child asks, said Mr. Landry. Schools attempt to build up this need through health and physical education courses and in'some eases through family education classes, he added.
