Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE July A child's personality reflects parents9 attitudes Explanation of 'ugly'words recommended By JOANNE KOCH Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Second of Pour An obscenity uttered by an appealing kindergartner in earshot of her younger brother is incongruous and unnerving. Four letter words have become part of young peoples' casual jargon. The changing standards of language in books and films affects so that swearing is no longer strange to the ears of three- and 4 year olds. I clearly remember the night we were at the table with our two then three and six. Their 18 month old brother was just learning talk. Between chicken and six year old Lisa asked in her rather thin little what does f k Dad coughed and got up for a drink of trying to give the usually perceptive Lisa a hint that it would be nice if she changed the subject. she repeated the question exactly and with not realizing this was something he would have given her five lollipops not to repeat. Some among them child guidance author Rudolph Dreikurs. advise parents simply to ignore the use of obscene language. While this may be more effective than washing the child's mouth out with I prefer the approach of Dr. Maria dean of the Erikson Institute of Early Education. a child asks about or uses such a explain that it is an ugly word which children use for showing off But Dr. Piers adds that if the child has had some educa- tion in this it's a good idea to explain that the ugly word stands for something which is not ugly but instead in- private. Dr. Piers believes that a child's use of obscenity may be a veiled request for an explanation. She points out that many certainly the facts of need to be explained more than once. She advises parents to be sensitive to these cues from their children. If the child sees his questions are not be- ing the way is open for other communication and the parent is likely to find the child more amenable to using discretion. there are many books available which help us over the somefimes awkward moment of having to ex- plain the facts of life to a pre school child. 'How Babies Are by Andrew C. Andry and Steven Schepp Life and Wonderful Story of How You Were by Sidonie M. Gruenberg are two such helpful story and picture books which present information in an attractive format designed for three to six year olds. Even with the best of books and the clearest of ex- the child may not grasp the full meaning of your story. One recently briefed five year old discovered a stringy vein in his chicken wing and is this a said reluctant to deal with the subject again. said her sure looks like a Children don't always hear what we tell even when we try our best to be accurate and thorough. They naturally tend to relate the mysteries of conception and birth to their own experience. They for confuse conception with a much more familiar and acceptable notion than intercourse. Even when they have been told the it is quite common for kids to assume that the which daddy gets in through the mouth. One six year old listening to the garden version of the facts of life broke in with an of that must taste The particular explanation given to a child is not as crucial in shaping his personality as other factors. Our anx- ieties concerning normal child development have indeed been channeled into the highly charged sex education controversy. But learning the answer to the question of where babies come from is only a small part of the child's growth. The most significant influences on a child's personality of which sexuality is only a part are the attitudes conveyed by the behavior of parents towards the children and each other. Freudians insist that the unconscious desires of parents can also play a part. Dr. Ner Littner cites an psychiatrists recommend that children of this age not see parents nude under any circumstances. In some parents' minds there is an unconscious wish to seduce the child. These parents will rationalize why they are but the real reason may be that they want to exhibit themselves. The blanket restriction against the open door policy is to avoid those rare cases where parents have such seductive at- Centering on the child's fantasies rather than the Helen Arnstein points out in her valuable book Growing Child and that the practice of parental nudity may be a reaction to Victorian a way some parents choose to say secrecy about the human body is un- wholesome. But Miss Arnstein explains that this practice tends to arouse more curiosity and more anxiety than is good for a child of three to six is still struggling with the fantasies of love and possession of one parent and rivalry with the She advises parents to tell children to knock on doors to bathrooms and bedrooms before entering simply because people like to be alone at times.

My problem is that whenever I'm with this guy that I really care and he begins to turn me I start to laugh This giggling at the most inopportune time started about six months and now it's on the verge of ruining our relationship. Every time he takes me in his arms or kisses I bust out laughing. It has nothing to do with anything being funny and I don't know why I do it. What's wrong with me and what can I do to help No Laughing Matter Dear Laughter can be an automatic response to em- barrassment. It can also be a release for repressed or pent- up emotions. In your it's probably a combination of guilt getting turned and an un- conscious mechanism that protects you from going further. A girl who laughs when a guy turns her on is sure to turn him OFF. Dear Ann Yester- Angela Coffey vflll be senrthe original art for her quote Send your child's quotation 10 this paper day a tiny baby was found abandoned in our city. The newspaper printed the story and published a picture of that adorable infant. Within hours they were deluged with calls from people who wanted to adopt him And this is why I am writing. I want to say a few words to girls who don't want their babies and leave them in bus garbage etc. In most states an abandoned child cannot be legally placed for adoption from one year to 18 months after the initial court hearing. The law is very unjust to the is set up to protect the parents' rights by giving them plenty of time to come forward and reclaim the child. During this the child is placed in a foster home. What I am trying to say is If you abandon a child he will be deprived of a perma- nent home for the first year or 18 months of his life. This same law deprives couples who want to adopt a child in infancy. So for your child's sake if you don't want him contact an adoption agency and they will strictest make the proper arrangements. The child will then not have to stay in a foster home for what may be the most important months of his life. A Concerned Social Worker Dear Thank you for performing a tremendous ser- not only to mothers and their unwanted but to the couples who can give these infants the love they need. I'm sure this is the first time millions of people were set straight on this legal booby trap. By LINDA WHITSON District Home Economist Nutrition Canada what's it all This was a survey conducted last year across Canada to provide precise scientific information on the nutritional status of the Cana- dian population. What it dis- covered was the fact that we are not eating very con- sidering our standard of living The main problem is overweight due to lack of ex- ercise However there are also deficiencies in vitamin thiamine and riboflavm.

The amount required depend upon age. climate and ac- tivities. High carbohydrate foods include bread and sweets. Proteins are the body building foods. They are necessary for growth and repair of our bodies. poultry and fish are excellent sources but beans and lentils are also good sources. Fats are high energy foods. They contain twice the amount of calories as com- pared to high protein or car- bohydrate foods. But they are necessary to normal growth. Calcium is needed with phosphorus and vitamin D to build strong bones and teeth. They also help normal heart and muscle nerve function and blood clotting. Milk is the primary source for these three nutrients but don't forget navy and rutabagas.
