He was hearing a custody case

The judge observed, "A child

Judge Adams bridled. "Hold on.
I have been asked to decide almost
everything, but I am not going to

Playtime is growing time.
So says Dr. Helen C. Dawe, pro
fessor of home economies and di
rector of the nursery school at the
University of Wisconsin.
Writing in the National Parent
Teacher, Dr. Dawes points out that
play is the ladder up which the
child climbs to successful and satis
fying adult life. It is the duty of
parents to make sure the Udder is
sound to help junior choose play
patterns which mean advancement,
play materials that are truly crea
tive, and play attitudes that make
for friendliness, fairness and un
derstanding. "Play is actually necessary for
a child if he is to grow whole
somely, not only in stature but in
skills, in understanding, in ability
to get along with other people and
with himself," she says.
for example, not-quite-two-and-a-half
Ricky is out in his back yard.
Cautiously, step by step, he climbs
up a wide board propped against
a low packing box. He reaches the
box and with a squeal of delight
jumps to the ground. Twenty
three times, by actual count, he
repeats his performance. Repeti
tious? Simple? Yes. But he will
be hungry for his lunch and ready
for his nap. His family has wisely
provided him with a simple toy
suited to his needs. They have
given him other equipment, too
a wagon, .1 swing, a ladder, and
some big blocks that encourages
him to practice using his whole
body. "Ricky will learn many
motor skills; he will be sure-footed
and erect; he will move with pre
cision and ease," Dr. Dawe says.
Then, there is Dora. The nursery
school playground Is filled with
action and sound, yet Dora has no
part in it. Though she will be font
years old in a few weeks, she
comes down the porch steps one
foot at a time. She watches the
children on the smallest teeter
totter but is afraid to join them.
She won't play in Ihe sandbox, and
she certainly won't sail boats in
the big tub because she might
splash her ruffly silk dress. Poor
unhappy, timid Dora. She has
been told time and time again by
an anxious and ever watchful
mother, "Be careful or you'll fall."
"Look out; you mighi get hurt."
and "Don't play there; you'll get
At the nursery school, Arthur
shoves Ann and threatens to hit her
"good and hard" if she doesn't
give back his choo-choo. The teach
er calmly watches and yet does
nothing to interfere. Within two
minutes Arthur and Ann are hap
pily playing train again; Arthur has
the choo-choo and Ann, despite
her sex, seems to be chief construc
tion worker on the new railroad
I rack. The explanation is simple.
At last Arthur is beginning to de
fend his rights. He needs to
quabblo sometimes in order to
learn how to share.
Says Dr. Dawe: "Small chil
dren's quarrels are usually brief
affairs, and if an adult steps in too
often the children are not learning
through their own experience
but are merely submitting to adult
dictation and control. To be sure,
Ihe adult does have to step in at
times. But when small children have
opportunities to play with others
I heir own ago, I hey teach each
other how to share, how to follow,
how to lead in an acceptable m;tn
ner. Their play becomes education
in growing up socially.
"By providing good play equip
ment, by respecting children's play,
by understanding how it can con
tribute lo their knowledge, their
skills, and their social and Emo
tional needs, we can - Indeed we
must--help every child to grow
straight and strong in body and in
mind.'' concludes Dr. Dawe:
There are few things children
like better than parties, provided
they are properly planned and exe
cuted. To help the parent who
wants to run successful parlies,
