Director el the Habit Clinic foe Child Guidance, gotten, Main. IT is one of the unhappy observa tions that children rareiy express a desire to be like their parents. And adolescents — even grownups — often complain about the attitude their parents had when they were chil dren, and voice frequent criticisms of their early home life. Lack of under standing stands out as the most im portant criticism. These backward glances are not usually associated with bitterness or resentment. More often, it is with a feeling of tenderness that these grown-up children express re gret because their parents just did not know how to enjoy what they, as children, could have offered. One boy says: "l)nd just swelled up with pride over his family, and the fact they belonged to him. but he never had time to get acquainted." A girl in early adult life says: “Mother always acted as though it were danger ous or undignified to get too intimate with me. Seemed to be afraid 1 would take advantage of any tamiliarity.” A nineteen-year-old boy states: "Fa ther used to get embarrassed if any thing about sex was mentioned and acted as though it was not a decent topic to talk about.” Youth Won't Be Waiting The time to begin getting acquaint ed with children is when they are very young. During these early years children just naturally turn to parents for care, protection, consolation, and advice. The pre-school years offer opportunities that will never come again for building up a happy, healthy parent-childhood relationship. How often do we hear a busy father remark: “When the boy grows up or when he gets a little older so that he can do things with me. we will get together and have some real comradeship, some good times." With an unshaken con viction that he can just slip in at any time and find youth waiting to accept him, he lets the years slip by. Then later, when Father is ready and in the mood for this comradeship, he is frequently hurt and disappointed that his boy is not receptive, that the relationship is strained, that shyness and diffidence offer a resistance to the efforts of both father and son. The parent now wants and hopes for the very comradeship which the child has been deprived of ever experiencing. The foundation of what this father would some day want and what the child always needed should have been laid during the early years. Sympathy, tolerance, affection, understanding are the product, not necessarily of constant association, but of genuine interest that can always be tapped by a child in time of need. The important ingredients of the child's |iart in this particular relationship are quite dif ferent from respect, obedience, good manners, and submitting to authority. Sense of Security Vital Respect and obedience, of course, are fundamentally important both now and later. But a sense of security in the petsonal relationships, is also important. This is, in cold fact, the very basis for confidence, self-esteem, and courage in later life. These assets come from a feeling in childhood of Ix'ing wanted, of being understood. The experiences he has in his early family relationships set the pattern for a child's later hie. If his simple, immature activity in everyday life appears to be of interest and concern to grownups, a child gets a feeling of being an important member of the family group. On the other hand, if his sand pile, his snow man, his make believe boat or car never get an audi ence; or the recifal of some thrilling experience, either real or imagined, never gets a hearing, he feels out of it. A child gets satisfaction in sharing these pleasures with his parents. When they take an interest, he feels he is understood. In time of need he — like all of us — will naturally turn to those who are sure to give a sympathetic hearing Parents who have been busy, too dignified, too preoccupied, or too intolerant to pay heed to the child’s early interests and problems will rarely be called in for advice and guidance when important problems arise during adolescent years. They will have to pick up the pieces and pay the bill, so to speak, but they will be able to contribute little of a constructive nature. T he roots of confidence, understand- • mg, and sympathy go deeper — and last longer -— than mere obedience and respect. They need more care and consideration, if they are to develop and feed a relationship between par ent and child which will permit of joy in companionship as well as pride in ownership.
