With the beginning of school,
many parents are re-focusing
their minds on the problems of
childhood adjustment and per
The Mid-Columbia Library has
set up a special shelf in the
reading room for books dealing
with parent-child relations.-
There are many new books on

child psychology and special
problems represented there.
The four questions the li
brary meets most frequently
from parents are “how and when
shall I tell my child about sex?"
“How can I help my child to
become better adjusted social
ly?" “How can I tell whether
my child is developing normal
ly,”, and “How can I discipline
my child in his naughtiness
without becoming a crank,” The
answers to these questions are
all dealt with in the new books
on the parent’s shelf.
The Child study association of
America has published a handy
volume called ”Parent’s Ques
tions." which answers many

simplest language.
“Your Child’s Mind and Body”
by Flanders Dunbar is a ”prac
tical" guide to normal develop
ment. Written by a physician. it
stresses the importance of the
first six years of life, so closely
related to sleeping. eating. play
ing, obedience and independent
thinking. This period, according
to the author, has “aftermaths
of behavior” all through child
hood and adolescence.
“Children Know Their Friends”
by Ruth Washburn, a consult.
ant in child development. de
velops the idea that to fully uno
derstand the behavior of the
child the parent must attempt
to.‘see the child’s problems from
the child’s point-oi-view. and
to use parental influence .to
make that point-of-view the
right one. It sounds simple and
possible when this experienced
child psychologist discusses the
problems of the growing child.
“Spare the rod and spoil the
child” is a forgotten addage to-~
day but there is no denying that
modern discipline is much more
difficult. to make effective, and
far more demanding of parental
understanding. “New Ways in
Discipline” by Dorothy Maruch
suggests methods of disciplining
a child without arousing resent

well-presented book. and will
probably take its place along

There is no Need for Strikes
