By Parents Is
Normal Thing
By Dr. Paul Popenoc
They sometimes feel as if they
are lost in the forest, Mrs. W. says.
“We want to make a good home
for our children, but we are told
so many things to do that my
husband and I become bewildered.
“We have three fine youngsters,
ranging from 7 to 14 years in age.
Sometimes we think we are doing
a good job with them, sometimes
we think we are complete failures
as parents.”
That’s good evidence that all
is normal. If you and Mr. W.
didn't feel that way, there would
be something the matter with you.
“How can we tell whether we
are doing the right thing,” she
continue, “when there are so
many things to be done?”
It might help you, Mrs. W.. to
have a rating scale on which you
could score yourself. As you say,
there are hundreds of important
things to think of, but if you did
well on these 10, we’d probably
discover that you were also doing
well on hundreds of others:
1. All possible decisions (in
cluding financial) are made In
family council.
2. Each child takes care of his
own room and belongings.
3. Father and mother share
fully in sex education of the
young ones.
4. Members of the family take
turns in enjoyment of the radio or
television set.
5. Mother has a few absorbing
interests outside the home.
6. Brothers and sisters often go
places together.
7. Children are encouraged to
bring their friends home.
8. Children are made to feel
that they are "part of the family
group by having appropriate re
sponsibilities as well as privileges.
9. Family celebrations are fre
quent and every one has a lot of
fun in them.
10. Every one has an opportu
nity to be alone some time during
the day.
In an ideal family, Mrs. W., a
“yes” answer could be given to
each of those statements. Youi
may miss on a few of them, and
you may have to qualify other
answer by saying “sometimes” or
“occasionally.” But they are all
indications of a well-organized
home. As I said, a “yes” an
swer to these will mean that you
could also answer “yes” to a lot
of similar questions. It is a sta
tistical truth that the good things
of life tend to go together.
Dr. Popenoe will anewer questions about
marriage relationships without charge.
Address all letter* to Dr. Paul Popenoe in
care of The Otar, inclosing self-addreased.
