HAVE a charming friend, the
mother of four children, all of
whom are bright and intelligent.
But I nm wntrhlna with finma
misgiving one point in their upbring
ing. My friend has deliberately ant? tho
youngest girl is but eight-laid out
the future of each child. Graham is
to follow in his father's profession
as a matter of course, tho second boy
is to be an architect, Hilda Is to be
a social service workor, and Tina
the musician of tho family.
To this end, their education is
being bent. It may turn out all
right. But suppose the perfectly
normal thing that Graham finds tho
law uninteresting, and forestry the
most absorbing thing in the world?
Ono of two things is bound to hap
pen; either ho will hesitate to disap
point his parents who have spent
money and energy on his law educa
tion and tho preparation for it, and
become a second rote member of tho
bar. or ho will risk the disappoint
ment of those who love him best and
forge for himself a career without
their Interest and support, perhaps
with the reproaches of his mother
ringing In his ears.

dren Is a burning question In the
world where subjocts of that nature
are being discussed. Many well
known authorities contend that very
early in tho mental life of a child
tho signs appear by which tho train
ed teacher can deddo what his real
work in tho world Is to be.
I should be the first one to decry
such a statement or belittle such
oltort. There are too many round
pegs in square holes already.
But tho point about my friend's
attitude Is that It Isn't scientific in
tho leact. Her decisions aro arbi
trary. There has r.lways been a law
yer In her husband's family, a
musician In hers; ergo, her chil
dren are to contlnuo tho line,
whether their talents point that way
I think it is perfectly possible that
even aa early as seven. In a normal
child, a mother can observe a de
cided bent, a talent, perhaps Inherit
ed, which mako her hopes and
dreams for her child very sweet and
But dreams have a most discon

For this much wo oo our chil

which can happen to a mother Is tho
realization that these shy confidences

older friend, because "mother doesn't
Let us talk frankly of the future.
No matter what tho financial status
or the family. I am an ardent advo
cato of vocational training for every
member of it. Changes in America
ore so sudden, that wo owe It to tho
children, girls as well as boys, that
they go from their homes porfeotly
equipped to earn their livelihood.
Time wag when a young woman
left penniless had no refuge but In
tho home of the next of kin. If aho
wore able she taught tho young chil
dren of the particular kinsfolk who

So lot us plan for our children,
