Mrs. Chapman, school psy- chologist for Lethbridge School District No. 51, was speaking at the second meeting in Ihe Lethbridge Family Service's weekly series on in child development Around about potty training, she said, pressure generally comes into play. "Usually it is family pressure for our own but the family is also influenced by what the neighbors say and think on the subject, and so "mother reacts and puts the pressure on the kid because she is a good moth- er and wants people to think she is a good mother." Not all pressure is bad, ac- cording to Airs. C h a p m a n. Sometimes it is necessary to put pressure on the child to give Hie parents time for peace and serenity. "I never implied the world was created just for children. It was created for children and she said. Children, she said, start out trying lo please parents. They realize early that they are members of a family or group, and they warn to pay back favors. "They don'l feel com- fortable unless Ihey pay you back for the things you do for them." When a child stands on his head, makes his parents laugh, paints a picture or c o m e s home with a bunch of dande- lions and worms, "recognize it for what it Mrs. Chapman emphasized. It is a gift of love; a way of saying thanks. recognize that a family has to be balanced and that they have lo she added. When the gifts are "things you don'l care to accept, like crashed give a lint about the kind of gift you'd like, said Mrs. Chapman. Men- lion how nice it would be to lave the coffee table dusted. In this way, a guide is given, hut the gift received is never influence someone, to experi- ment and to please friends, and group values and ideas become more important than fam i 1 y ones lo the children. At I his stage, Mrs. Chapman considers it wise lo comprom- ise, for parents lo keep lo the minimum the things they will be strict about, and let the chil- dren have their own way on hair, clothes and things that are not so important. She said she herself' compromises with her eight-year-old daughter who wears pants to school lo con- form wilh her friends, and The Lellibridgc Public School i system has been under a re- gional type of library lor the past three years. Mrs. Bossen said it is working out very well. Each school has a library which uses the same catalogu- ing system. Mrs. Bossen said that this allows the student to lie able to move to any school library and be able to use it in every other library in the system. To know what the other li- braries have, and be able to borrow between the libraries is working on the basics of a re- gional system, Mrs. Bossen suggested. Mrs. Bossen said that Ihe big- gest problem whicli the school library system lias had was those people who were set in their ways and would not change lo the side of progress. Siie said this would probably he a main problem if a region- al library system were used for the southern Alberta area. and out O town All groups and sections of St. Augustine's Church ACW will hold an annual tea and ba- zaar on Saturday from 2 to 5 Women o VANCOUVER A group of about 50 women met in Vancouver to form the Working Wor.icn's Association.

She said thai credit is a use- ful tool requiring an education- al approach to its sensible use. i The person who can fully un- derstand the credit system can i make a better life for himself i and for his family. Credit, in its many different phases has both advantages and disadvantages according to MIT Clarke.

Disadvantages of credit pur- chasing can be summed up in recognizable categories, said Mrs. Clarke. It can lead to im- pulsive buying, it definitely nar rows the "choice of ways and means in which to spend the total income, and brings lo mind the possibility of losing the goods due to delinquent pay- ments. She said parents should not develop a negative attitude to- wards credit that will be pass- ed on to their children. "We should be teaching our children how to use credit properly. It should be understood fully to be used properly and to our bene- fit." Mrs. Clarke went on to ex- plain the different types of cre- dit accounts available to the consumer and interest charges connected to the purchasing of articles on these accounts. She further added a list nf essential items that the unwary used car buyers, especia 11 y young men, should know before signing a contract. Included in her talk were the interest rates of credit unions, banks and loan companies. Mrs. Clarke suggested that a straightforward, sensible and educated approach be taken to dealing with credit for all. j The sessions, presented by the Alberta Department of Agricul- ture on the financial side of liv- ing, will continue through the next two Tuesdays at the Leth- bridge Community College. They learn a lot just from realizing she said. "Share errors, it makes them feel safer in saying 'I sure did a stupid thing "Most kids appreciate it when you level with said Mrs. Chapman. She advised parents to tell their children where money goes, and usually the children's demands will become more reasonable. "Don't scare them to death, but let them know when there are pressures It is bad lo let them think the grown up's life is rosy. Le them in on the decision-making.' Within the family the first group feeling is created, then adolescents change from family to peer group. They are in school so much with children their own age they feel it i good to have this group wit them.
