WHY ARE patents so generous
at finding fault with each other
and their children, but so miserly
at complimenting them deserved
ly? It is probably because we are
human beings with a good deal of
tSe savage still in us.
About the easiest way we gain
feelings of importance is making
others feel and seem to be less im
purtant than we are, by lording it
over them. This is exactly what
the husband does (unawares, of
course) when he' constantly, finds
fault with his wife or children,
and exactly what a wife does when
she constantly finds fault with her
husband and children. Unawares,
then, we tend to exalt ourselves by
lowering others, especially by low
ering Our own loved ones. They
are easy to get at
Find It Annoying
Now the wife, husband or child
is annoyed by our continual fault
finding and we in turn are vexed
that they should be so easily an
noyed. We assume that anyone
should welcome our criticism at
any time and immediately strive
to profit from it. On the contrary,
the person excessively crit'cised
does not feel ready to profit from
the criticism but. instead, tends to
do more often and intensely tha
very things criticised.
Curiously enough, while the

chronic fault-finder seems not at
all aware of what makes him so
critical, the one he criticises sees
through the whole matter. Even a
child of eight or ten must often
sense the satisfaction his father
or mother gets when lording it
Another reason why we are so
generous with disapprovals and
so miserly with approvals of our
loved ones is that we are lazy and
dull. It takes more intelligence
and more effort toseethe;trergths,
deeds we like. nd virtues than to
see the weaknesses, and the vices
in another person, especially those
of the family,
What we need to strive to do is
to turn our way about and culti
vate the habit of expressing honest
compliments and approvals more
often. We need to practice at cele
brating successes in the other
parents arid the children.
Some years ago I wrote a pam
phlet for the U. S. Office of Edu
cation, "Education of young chil
dren through celebrating their
successes." It may be had for five

Solving Parent Problems
Q, Should a child over six be
expected to help in the garden and
about the place while visiting at
the home of farm relatives or
friends for several days or more?
A. Yes; it will do aim moral
harm not to do so.
