(Questions will be answered by Dr. Richardson if accompanied by a stamped and self-addressed envelope.) ONE WAY NOT TO SPOIL A CHILD “I can’t see why that Harrison boy isn’t spoiled. His parents think tn = sun rises and sets in him; and instead of concealing it from him, they let him and everybody else know it. I should be afraid to death that he’d become hopelessly spoiled, if he were .'my child; yet he doesn’t seem to chow it, if he is. He seems very mod est and pleasant to get along with.' Praise and expressed approval never, “spoiled” any child —nor a man or women .either. What does spoil children is to be told that they are better, or brighter, or wealthier, than other children, Whether this is true or not. the effect is equally disas trous. It is a altogether different thing to let children know that we are pleased with what they are do ing, that we approve of them, and that we are proud of (hem. The first , course of action makes snobs and prigs; the second makes contented, happy boys and girls. “But I can’t find a single thing that I can honestly praise, in that trouble some boy of mine!” objected an im patient father. Nothing to praise? I doubt whether there is anyone, any where, in whom an impartial obser ver could not find something to praise Just look around carefully, Dad; ana you’ll find lots of things about that growing boy of yours that are deserv ing of praise. Then concentrate on jthose. You’ll not spoil him; and it may be that you’ll find that there s nut nearly so much to blame, when you get out of the way of blaming, and into the way of praising. Why not give it a try? QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS, QUESTION: Dear Tr. Richardson. Your instructions in answer to my question as to how to control can trums, were to allow the child to give his “show.” but to pay no attention to it. 1 tried that; but my 3-year-oia son used his lungs to such an extent that I am afraid sometimes. I have an uncle who screamed so when he was a little fellow that now he can 'talk only in a hoarse whisper; and Jimmy’s grandfather says that he won’t stand for that. ANSWER: Your uncle may talk in a hoarse whisper; and I should hesi tate to say that he never screamed when he was a child. But I very se riously doubt whether there is any connection between these two inter esting facts. Don’t let Jimmy or his grandfather stop you with that one! I too used to scream and kick; but it neither strained my voice nor affect ed my leg muscles. Stick to your guns; let Grandpals objections fly where they will! QUESTION: What can I do for a son who wets the bed? Is there any imedicine that will cure him? ANSWER: Try the “dry supper,”— nothing to drink after 5 at night, ex cept in teaspoonful sips, not even milk, or cocoa. Wake him an hour after ne drops to sleep; and again in the mid dle of the night ,if necessary. so that ihia bladder never becomes overdis tended. Never give medicine for bed wetting, or for anything else, with out your own doctor’s advice. QUESTION: Can asthma in a boy of 8 be cured; and what causes it? ANSWER: Sometimes—and some times not; and it is caused by so many different things, differing so in different people, that it would take a big book to tell all about it. We’ll while ask your doctor send you to talk about it here some day.

Or is that just another one of the useless and unnecessary things that mothers seem to like to worry themselves over? Is this anything that parents ought to be concerned about? Yes, indeed; very much so. It is just as normal and natural for a child to want to play, as it is for his fath er to want, to support his family, lor ;h\is mother to want to provide a happy home for her husband and chil dren. Whenever a man or a woman shows an aversion toward these na itural desires, we try to find out what has} caused it. The same thing holds true of the child who does not want to play. Wise parents and wise doctors will not be satisfied until they find out which of the many possible causes is respon sible for it. The onset of any of the acute dis eases, and especially of that very se rious disease the common cold, may make a child too listless and dispirit ed to play. Headache from defective eyesight can cause this unnatural •date of affairs. So also can fatigue from too much exertion, or from too little rest and relaxation, in school or at home. Unsatisfactory play con dition. such as a playground domin ated by a bully or by an over-con scientious playdirector, can kill inter est in play. Whatever the cause, it should be re garded with gi av# suspicion. Wise parents will not rest until they dis cover the cause. A child who docs not like to play, like a fish who does like to swin is a. contradiction it, terms. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. QUESTION: Dear Dr. Richardson I have recently adopted a boy of six. We had him thoroughly examined by a. children’s specialist, and nothing wrong was found. But he has some hidden fear which we have been un able to unearth. He is afraid of every thing, especially the dark. And there’ seems to be a constant fear of some animal or monster that is going to de vour him. I’ve seen him so terrified as to be actually nauseated. There must be some way to counteract this fear. ANSWER: Congratulations, on your wisdom and courage in adopting a child. Why don’t more childless cou ples take this eminently safe ana sane course? Your boy has probably been unwisely dealt with before adop tion. Your only course is patience, re assurance. and a willingness either to discuss the fear or not. just as he chooses'. Comfort him. but do not make too much of the fear. A year , Cardui a Good Tonic "After the birth of my little girl, I was weak and run-down and felt that I needed a tonic to give me strength to do my work,” writes Mrs. G. A. Bounds, of Plain Deal ing, La. “My mother had used * Cardui with good results. I, too, was helped. A few years after this I again needed a tonic. Cardui, being so reliable, I took it again and haven’t regretted it. I have also given Cardui to my daughter. I am very much pleased with Car dui, and expect to use it in my family as a tonic, when needed.” Buy Cardui at the drug store. from now things will be vastly dif ferent. Write me then, won’t you? QUESTION: Where can I learn about courses of training for nurses who want to devote themselves to the caxe of mental cases? ANSWjER: Write the National Com mijttee On Mental Hygiene. 460 Seventh Avenue, New York City, for information on this subject. QUESTION: My little ooy, aged two rocks himself back and forth for hours when put to bed, before drop ping off to sleep. I have been told that this is a form of masturbation.

G. Davis & Sons Co. PAGE THREE CHURCH SOCIETIES ANNOUNCEMENTS What should I do about, it? ANSWER: The habit, while an noying because it causes the baby to delay in getting to sleep, is not se rious one. Better so arrange his bed and clothing that the rocking, how ever he does it, is impossible. Mean while, lbok after his nutrition, and keep emotional conditions as calm and unehangable as possible.
