JOSEPH PEPOS Cascade Couuty Ou, y< TODAY AS ALWAYS, the older generation is bemoaning the fact that youth is headed down some uncer- tain road to a horrible end. And, as always, the younger generation is setting out defiantly to lead its dwn Mfe, in spite of its elders. Now the question is, who is right, the oldsters or the youngsters? -We decided to try to find the answers in our various home demon stration clubs throughout the coun ty, with the help of family life spe cialists and informative material from various sources. I believe the problem can be summed up in two words—"understanding teenagers." In for Surprises We were in for a few surprises as we studied the different problems. Good nutrition, for instance, we had assumed was mainly for the physical child. It was pointed out that the teener is undergoing a complete change, physically and emotionally, from childhood to adulthood, and that he needs, more than ever, a bal anced diet and plenty of rest. Someone asked about a daughter who was trying to lose excessive weight by Skipping breakfast. Would it do her any harm? It would not only impair her phys ical growth and cause a nervous, tired feeling, ^>ut would not reduce her weight, the Daytime energy requires proper food as fortification for normal living, and eating rich food at late hours helps to accumulate pounds. A nourishing breakfast and lunch, with a light but well-balanced evening meal, would keep her weight down without impairing her health. The Athlete counselor advised. And what about the athlete? Does he need special food? Yes, he does. The more energy he expends, the more nourishing food he needs to compensate for the added stress on his growing body. Too strenuous ercise or too much social life seriously affect the health of teen agers. We must remember that they are in a period of unusually rapid growth, and excesses may harm them. Late hours and unusual phys ical demands must be made up in extra rest and added nourishment if their development is to be normal. ex can Another important problem in teen years is emotional development. On this subject, one, mother queried, "Why is it that my daughter is up in the clouds one day and down in the dumps the next?" The counselor replied, "That is quite normal, unless she goes to obvious extremes. She is merely try ing to understand life and needs your love and guidance." This emotional instability will pass in average youngsters. Most of it is brought on by not being able to understand or interpret life. An adolescent needs a parent to stand by, not over him. He needs most of all to feel loved and wanted, ne matter how different his attitudes are or how strange his viewpoints seem. sor He needs to be a real part of the family, sharing in all its joys and rows. He needs firm but affectionate discipline that explains without merely demanding. They're Human, Too Sometimes we forget that teen agers are human, too, and will make mistakes. We should therefore give understanding advice, instead of making an issue of every small error. Praise is desperately needed by young people.* They feel as if they are always blundering in the adult world and they need endless encour agement. Show interest in what they do, treating each as a person in his own right. Remember they need fun and companionship. Encourage family gatherings and make their friends welcome in your home. Home is a place to live in, and surely our youngsters are as valuable as the furniture Be Fit lo Imitate Common sense will make us try to be fit parents for children to imitate. With a good home back ground and wise, sympathetic par ents, the teenager has half his prob lems solved. In order to face life he needs to develop a good sense of responsi bility. High school years pass all too quickly and many youngsters are confronted too soon with the busi ness of being full-fledged adults. Responsibility and independence should have begun from babyhood and definitely needs completion in teen years. Now is the time to let the youngsters know what it costs to live, how and when to spend mon ey on clothes and amusements. Knowledge of Life and Love Another phase that must not be overlooked is the truthful knowledge of life and love. There should be no shame-faced evasions of such vital is sues as moral living and sex life. Only truth, in all its detail, will pro tect the young boy or girl from dan gerous mistakes. things they should turn them to someone who can. Many fine books written especially for teenagers, an swering in detail all their questions, can be obtained through our home demonstration agents and other it the parents feel unable to give the youngster a true picture of these re liable sources. We' can't very well expect our children to have an in herent knowledge of life in this com Summing it all up, then, what is the answer to that age-old plaint? Are teenagers of today really getting into so much trouble? No, we don't think they are. We believe, in fact, that the young pee pie of today have a much brighter outlook on life than we have ever had. Enlightened elders no longer ask "where are they going" but "where are we going to help them to go?" They no longer say "We didn't do that!" but "We were young and puzzled once, too, and also made mistakes. So let us solve them to gether. plex civilization. corn No one will need to be blamed for the mistakes of either the young sters or their elders, if we all work together.
