Hands Oflt the Men and Women Who
Were Your Children
When she answers the phone, Mother says, “If it’s the Brown boy tell him you
can go to the movie; and if it’s Allan, [or pisy’s sake, don't gush at him.”
By KATHLEEN NORRIS
OMETIME before this year gets
S too old it might be a good idea
to try to stop living your chil
dren's lives for them. \
Not for the children’s sake. pri
marily. though for that. too. But
for your own sake, you young moth
ers and older mothers and grand
mothers, it is worth while to sit
down for a few minutes, and seri
ously consider just what your rela
tionship with the younger generation
really is.
Begin by remembering what YOU
thought of the grown-ups. when you
were 16 and 20 and 25. You loved
them and were grateful to them for
years of kindness and care—and you
wanted to get them and their timid.
old-fashioned ideas out of the way
as rapidly as possible. and begin the
fil‘oflous business of living your own
e.
__‘i'here comes a moment in the life
of every girl of 15 or 18 when her
mother says something like this to
her:
“That's the telephone. Joan. And
it it's the Brown boy you tell him
that you can go to the movie. but
you have to come straight home
atterward, and if it’s Allan for pity’a
sake don't gush at him as if he were
the only boy in the world, and stop
chewing that sum!”
There comes a time in the life of
every boy of 17 or 19 when his moth
er' says something like this to him:
“I cannot understand what you
like about that Tom; he isn't the
sort of friend I like you to have at
all. He's nice enough. but so ordi
nary! Now it you do go out tonight
I want you to be back here by 11;
you're making far too much fuss
about this silly club or yours. any
way, you’ll be of! after something
else in a few weeks. And be sure
to telephone and ask that nice Baker
girl to go with you to the dance.
Her mother is president of our club
and she’s really a lovely girl. only
shy and quiet.” .

They know. it mother and dad

they reached their present ages.
They are a man and. a woman at
