TRAINING LITTLE CITIZENS
Courtesy and Consideration
By Bertha Johnston
"The grfiater man, 'the greater
In every homo opportunities should
bo made for the little children to
practice consideration and care for
something weaker than themselves.
The cherishing inst&nct, both in the
individual and the family needs cul
tivation and direction. It is mani
fested in the love of little girls for
their dolls and fin the devotion of
boys to their pets. If this quality
of nature is not exercised, or prop
erly directed, St withers, for affec
tions must be exercised if they are
to develop. We often see spoiled chil
dren in American famiKes, where all
their desires aro gratified without
effort on their own part and they
aro given no opportunity to serve.
Many a mother virtually makes n
slave of herself forj her children,
humoring every whim, and relieving
them of dll care, troutyo and re
sponsibility, only to find when they
are grown that they aro utterly self
ish and inconsiderate.
Unfortunate, too, is the only child
or the youngest member of the fam
ily, who is overindulged, with no
more dependent member of the
household to call forth his tender
feelings. Herein lies one great value
of the kindergarten, whero children
arc given opportunities to help
those younger thnn themselves.
For tho child without companions
in tho home, the parent should pro
vide occasions that require service
or sacrifice for others. Arrnnge to
havo his friends como frequently to
play with your littlo one, and share
fiis toys, suggesting that tho little
guests must havo tho best.
Adaptability is gained through
companionship with one's equals.
From assodntion with boys, little
girls learn something of fair piny,
and .become acquainted with the
sturdier virtues; while, from tho
girls tho boys learn to havo n chiv
alrous attitude toward womankind.
The instinct of nurture is devel
oped through the care of a garden
or pets, for a child must exercise
thought and put into practice, in
order t oobtain results. Then, too,
generosity and respect are stimulated
by sharing tho fruits of his care, a
little bouquet for mother, a head of
lettuce for a neighbor, an extra kit
ten for a playmate.
If pets havo young, tio child's
mother should call attention to the
care of the mother for bjr little ones,
and her courage and self-sacrifice
whenever the young aro endangered.
A child should be taught to take en
tire charge of his pets, to weed and
care for his garden, if he is to re
ceive tho full benefit in character
dovelopmpnt and achieve the self
respect which comes from responsi-

Then, too, good manners which
'spring from consideration aro as es
sential to the'happiness of the world
as are good morals, and pajrents
should be examples of both to their
children. How often virtuous people

tact! Courtesy and grnciousness
smooth out tho rough places of life.
A tiny boy of 3 years can raise his

It would be well if moro children
